This Is Hilarious: Wall Street Journal Losses Its Mind Over Bike Share Program

Written by Boston Biker on Jun 04

Want a good belly laugh, or perhaps to have your head explode, check out this WSJ “opinion” video about the new bike share program in NYC.

I honestly don’t know what happened to the WSJ, they used to be right wing, but not like this. Its like they stepped off the cliff and and didn’t notice they are falling though space.

I almost feel bad for this old lady ranting about the totalitarian government and how they are enforcing the bike share on these poor innocent civilians, but then I listen to the actual words coming out of her mouth and I just can’t work up any sympathy for her.

The older generation should be ashamed with what they have done with this planet, and they should count their lucky stars that the young-ins haven’t put them on trial for crimes against the bio-sphere.

A bike share program is just one small step in making this planet just a smidge more livable, and she talks about it like its some sort of fascist death camps. Hyperbole stacked on hyperbole layered in ignorance, with just a dash of crazy. A video well worth watching and laughing at.

    It is a pretty mind-boggling rant; in particular the claim that she represents most New Yorkers. But BostonBiker should avoid implying that the “older generation” is particularly at fault for the mess the world is in. Every generation has done its part to make the world a mess and there’s no reason to think the generation that has just reached adulthood will be any different. Human nature hasn’t changed very much; including the tendency of the young to blame the mess on the old and to claim some special righteousness. “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”

    DKB: While I admit no one is perfect, the generations are not blameless. People have known that putting co2 into the atmosphere had the potential to warm up the earth since the 1800’s.

    Past generations gambled and figured the scientists were wrong, a gamble they have lost.

    As the danger becomes more and more obvious it becomes harder and harder to just throw up your hands and claim everyone was innocently confused.

    If the current crop of humanity entering “adulthood” put their heads in the sand and ignore the problems of this world, they will be even guiltier than those who came before them, because the evidence is all the more overwhelming.

    Judge not, lest ye be judged is all well and good unless you have done something horrible. In which case it can be helpful to be judged, so that everyone else sees that its horrible and doesn’t do it themselves (hence our legal system).

    I resemble that remark about the older generation… I am part of the older generation and believe me I AM NOT happy with many things done by my peers. FWIW when I come to Boston, I may have to drive to get there, but once there it is mass transit or shanks mare to get around. I prefer to arrive via Amtrak when opportunity allows it.
