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.

For the record: first cycling isn’t dangerous, getting hit by a car is dangerous. Second, cycling is a lot less wimpy than sitting at your desk and talking out your ass about stuff you don’t know anything about (listen again, both people admit to not knowing anything about what they are talking about multiple times). Third, is there no lengths to which these people will go to harp on the president (don’t get me wrong, there are a millions things to harp on him about, so why these completely insignificant ones?).
The state of current politics, where the WSJ will spend time talking about the “wimpification” of America, instead of, say an in-depth discussion about the use of drones to kill American citizens, or the approaching extinction danger facing the human species due to global warming saddens me. It doesn’t surprise me, but it does sadden me.
