Another racist example of Twin Cities policies. Low income people aren't concentrated in certain neighborhoods, they live everywhere. And, how many bikes will be stolen from the liberal high-crime, poverty infested ghettos? Your tax dollars at play again.!

This seems to me to be a case of singling out low-income people to make them ride bikes. How come they have to ride bikes when everybody else has a car? It sounds a little descriminatory to me.

St Paul tried this once before and the yellow bikes vanished. What's interesting about criminals is they damage/destroy free stuff given to them. It's like biting the hand that feeds them.

Of course this is another good example of Government (Liberards) repeating an excercise that has failed once and having the ignorance to "think" the outcome will be different the second time.

I mean how phocking stupid can they be?

Geez, don't say that..... Some politician will get the idea to park a bunch of free cars there, paid for out of the taxes we pay.

I also have a house in Florida where I will gladly move permanently when I can sell my Minneapolis properties. The property taxes here are about $10,000 a year, in Florida $1200.(not that it's any of your business, but I have a bi-polar X who I care for here, also)

My guess is your Medicare expenses out weigh any small contribution you make in taxes. You're welcome.

This is most likely connected to michelle's exercise program. To get folks moving about. Since supposedly the higher number of the obese are those in poverty.

Plus, those who legally have vehicles either bought them or someone close to them gifted them the vehicles.

From my book:

RULE 5:ďRidicule is manís most potent weapon.Ē There is no defense. Itís irrational. Itís infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Keep up the good work Bob.
