More lies as Indiana wants more people riding bikes instead of driving cars, What better way than to say that Hoosiers rank last in fitness lol. Typical Liberal way to advance their agenda and attack on cars that they hate so much, They want us using more public transit systems , So they can control our movements and where we travel too.Force us to walk and ride more the way they deem fit. Let's see CALIFORNIA has all the nice weather most the time and many places to travel too there. Yet they also have the most car drivers, Yet they are the state with the most liberals as well as New York that wants to demonize car drivers in middle America, When in fact they have the most cars polluting the air. Just because they also have some trains and subways, They feel as though they have the right to tell us in the middle we must abandon our cars and take the bus and taxi or bike and walk to work.

Take a look around Indianapolis. The obesity they claim is indeed true. Also there are a lot of smokers in Indianapolis.

That would apply to every inner black city in the United States of people of color, yanno wut I means lol.I mean since many black peeps is on welfare and food stamps. Have you seen how big the women are black girls.I Linda are you adding in the pot smokers as smokers also?Most the time I pull up to a red light or stop sign I smell weed and see people toking on weed not ciggs.Many Hawaiian people are Obese and they live in the most beautiful place. They could hardly compare to Indianapolis, Then on many Indian reservations lots of obesity .The NFl HAS MANY OBESE players who are linebackers lol.I wouldn't call beer drinkers obese just because they have beer guts lol. That's just a reserve keg down there hahah.Damn I need to do some ab crunches and more situps , I bet I could crush this beer can with my tummy lol.
