I honestly see no problem with spending a measly 1 million dollars a year (we spend a couple billion a month in Iraq) on promoting Bicycle Riding. This
Jerk Idiot Republican representative from North Carolina would rather we burn more coal.
Here they are again bashing the bicycle…this time in print.
As Democrats yesterday encouraged people to ride their bicycles to work today as a solution to rising gas prices, Republicans had this to say: â€œYouâ€™ve got to be kidding.â€
While more than 20,000 commuters throughout Denver metro today plan to ditch the car and participate in Bike to Work Day, some Republicans said cycling falls short of any real energy solutions.
â€œColorado families are struggling at the pump and the answer we are getting from Colorado Democrats is shut down oil and gas production in Colorado and ride your bike â€” unbelievable,â€ said Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch. â€œIâ€™d like to see how they expect a mother of three in my district to get her kids to school and to buy groceries for her family using a bicycle.â€(via)
I mean why do these people hate the two wheeled wonder that is the bicycle so much? I just don’t get it?
