So, since I work for the town, I can give a tiny little bit of info. Notice all the bikes cluttering up our streets lately? Truly dangerous and not something that fits in with our community, but left wing causes be dammed because it seems SOMEONE in town government is paying riders to ride around town to make it SEEM like we need more bike lanes.

I even saw a bike given to someone so they can ride up and down 160 in the bike lanes.

Its also being done to justify taking away more of our roads for bike lanes.

Next time you see someone riding a bike and weaving in and out of traffic, slowing you down, now you have to wonder if they are just someone riding a bike, or someone getting a check, or a favor from the town (thanks to a certain someone) for riding around town.

Have you ever thought that since our oil companies are shoving it up our asses people are trying to save money? Venezeula nationalized their oil companies and they pay about 50 cents a gallon. So who's getting screwed?

What I find amazing is that no one addressed the OP's comment. I noticed a ton of new bike riders all over RIGHT after those car encroaching bike lanes were put in. Perhaps they are on to something?

I put nothing past our town board and town manager.

I guess its easier to blame oil companies or cry that they need to be "nationalized" like the former Soviet Union?

Aside from all of this, Bike lanes are DANGEROUS. Bikes to not belong on roadways. Amazing most of you have problems with guns being "dangerous" to carry around but no problem with people riding bikes in this town on highways.

Most people don't mind others carrying weapons. They just need to keep them away from the idiots like Sam Jones, Bill Carns, Nancy Lord, etc. etc.

And how do you propose we do such a thing? Perhaps something along the lines of "Im sorry, you are associated with CCSC so no guns for you?"

Maybe while we are at it, we can pass a law against fat ugly short chicks who try to look like Snookie and wear far too much eyeliner from having facebook pages.

Henry Henry Henry. Your obsession with Stephanie Lopez is unhealthy but understandable. You obviously have a deep seated lust for her but are unable to admit it. As a matter of fact many of your kind in town do. I never understand why you people don't come out and just admit your fascination with her. As an aside, dumbasses like Carns, Lord, Jones and Firestarter really do need to be relieved of their firearms before they hurt themselves.

I think they are sending us these bicyclists from california to push the liberal health nut agenda. The ones that wear spandex and drink the store bought bottled water are a dead giveaway. I wonder, is them american bikes they's riding?

I was 100% correct. Kolbarger has instructed the courts to work with drug court offenders to give them free bikes if they dont have cars to get to work,

Just an FYI, Bill Carns has been a firearms training specialist for over ten years training civilians, police, and military. Perhaps you should consider speaking to Mr. Carns about some of your obvious misconceptions and assumptions.

Yeah, I heard this as well. I was told that Kolbarger has town employees running around to the various homeless camps giving out free beater bikes for them to ride around town. From what I was told, they are given 20 dollars a day for every day they ride around town. You notice how you only see homeless bum looking guys on these bikes? Thats why I figured it was true.

Nope most of the dem chicks in this town are fat and have "issues" like imaginary health problems, or FakerMyalgia, or Fauxtism.

They all manage to get cripple parking plaques too even thought they are not really in need of them.
