Ok, I think I can officially say I "have heard it all" now. This is too unreal to believe, but believe it you must. Colorado republican candidate for governor Dan Maes said via todays Denver Post the following:
"At first, I thought, 'Gosh, public transportation, what's wrong with that, and what's wrong with people parking their cars and riding their bikes? And what's wrong with incentives for green cars?' But if you do your homework and research, you realize ICLEI is part of a greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty,"
Yes Danny, that is it. You are on to us. We riders of bicycles are coming to "reign in" American cities under a new bicycle revolution. Those who do not pedal in line will be run over with our knobbies and tossed into the Chainrings of Doom. All Hummers and the like will be ground up by the pedal-powered crushers of the New World and the remains shoveled into cargo bikes to be recycled into... more bikes!!! Should the survivors of this revolution not turn, they will be melted down in the boiling chain-lube fires into nutrient-dense energy gel packets for the riders of the New Society.
If someone made this up it would be hilarious. The fact someone actually thinks it is damned scary. Check out the article. Unbelievable. Though, it is a bit funny to envision Maes and all his goons waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats from the nightmares of the army of Red Bikes piloted by EnviroNazis about to take over the United States.
Does anyone really believe this foolish rubbish spewing out of this guy? Yikes. Is there a "planet stop" somewhere along the solar system for us to boot these crazy passengers?
