I didn't know whether to post this under the Neverending Political Thread, the Transportation Forum, or the Neverending "Everything is a UN/Communist plot to take over the world" Thread. So, I just started a separate one.Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes is warning voters that Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper's policies, particularly his efforts to boost bike riding, are "converting Denver into a United Nations community. This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed,"
The B-Cycle program places a network of about 400 red bikes for rent at stations around the city. It is funded by private donors and grants.
"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said. . . . "These are very specific strategies that are dictated to us by this United Nations program that mayors have signed on to."
Maes said [the program] is affiliated with the United Nations and is "signing up mayors across the country, and these mayors are signing on to this U.N. agreement to have their cities abide by this dream philosophy."
Just for the record, I commute from home to work and back by bicycle most days.
What says the Throbbing BrainTM? Is promoting bicycling a secret attack on personal freedom and American sovereignity? If so, it is a good thing this gentlemen pointed this out to us.
