OK, I just found a Republican who rides a bike for practical purposes.

Accident statistics on bicycling are horrific per mile traveled. In my
case, I achieved a lifetime of about 15,000 miles before a serious
acccident.


Sorry, but bicycling is not the answer, or even part of the answer.

See, you just seem to deny my theory that Republicans don't care
enough about anything to ride a bike for practical purposes. But since
you say biking is so dangerous, and neither the Republican Party nor
the Democratic Party is the solution, who's the solution?


Either God or the Revolution, right?


Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to
empress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop
will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it
more rapidly. You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you
up,drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you
loose
to
fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame
of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea
of your own trite, foolish beliefs.


Hey, Dr. Evil, instead of spewing insults you should check yourself to
find your true colors...

(of course, also check your blood pressure)

You fall under the revolution parameters. Neither party will solve the
problem. I think the revolution needs to be left libertarian.

Left libertarians see the need for COOPERATION, and traffic takes a
lot of it. Not too anarchist though as we need the government to set
up cameras to root out the bad drivers, but not to control speed.

Actually I believe in an American autobahn, while having BIKE LANES at
the same time. Is that a contradiction?

Well, it happens in Germany.

You are, at varying times, tedious, boring, earth shatteringly hilarious
in

your idiocy,childish, moronic, pathetic, wretched, disgusting and pitiful.
You
are wholly without any redeeming social graces or value. If God ever decides
to give the planet an enema you'd better run like the wind because anywhere
you stand is a suitable place for The Insertion.

And you probably dress funny, too.

I see you're still trying to scare people away from riding.

Accident statistics on bicycling are horrific per mile traveled. In my

They are, are they? Have /you/ looked at any real accident statistics
on bicycling? And who the heck is this "cujet" guy, and where did he
post the above?

case, I achieved a lifetime of about 15,000 miles before a serious

I wonder what "cujet" did, to fsck up so badly after only
15,000 miles.

Sorry, but bicycling is not the answer, or even part of the answer.

I've met a number of folks with Republican leanings here in
r.b.m. I think they're mostly nice people, and I'm mostly an
apolitical, irreligious libertine. In fact, I think most people,
whether with Republican or Democrat, or Conservative or Liberal
leanings are roughly "centerists" with overlapping viewpoints,
maybe with some few contentious outlier opinions on certain
topics that haven't yet led to The End Of Days.

Republicans are not the enemy. Self-purported, self-styled
"revolutionaries" who want to upset the applecart are.
Of whom does that description remind you?

But since
you say biking is so dangerous, and neither the Republican Party nor
the Democratic Party is the solution, who's the solution?

"dangerousness" of cycling? The solution to that is

OK, he fell down himself, but I've felt intimidated enough to make me
lose my balance. Republicans just ignore how bad our roads are since
they mostly drive SUVs, and then try to make Iraq safe.

Of course, the Democrats also ignore the issue if only they talk about
some of the problems here...

Let's see Red is SUV town, hostile to bikes; Blue, friendly to public
transportation and bicycles. But the Democratic Party Machine doesn't
deliver the goods either.

Are all the Democratic party officials driving SUVs?

You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid,
nasty

and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an ignoramus.
Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with you. You are
unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that
reality forgot.

I will admit that sometimes truly I long for the day where you can
deliver a punch to the face over TCP/IP. It would purely make for a
much politer interblag.


You want to punch someone in the face over what's quoted above?

Wow.


Nah, it's more of a generalized desire due to BananaBoy's (or whatever nym
he's using this week) general idiocy. Really, I'm not all bent out of
shape, I wish he'd just go away.

Sounds a little bit like my crash. I busted an arm bone, my pinkie
finger, and my leg. And I've got you [cujet] by 11 years. I'm into my
tenth week of recuperation.
But put the two of us together and all we add up to is anecdotal
evidence.

Accident statistics on bicycling are horrific per mile traveled. In my
case, I achieved a lifetime of about 15,000 miles before a serious
acccident.


Yep, that's about how much I rode before mine.

Sorry, but bicycling is not the answer, or even part of the answer.


Bicycling IS the answer. I will probably be off bikes until spring,
but when spring comes I'll be back riding full-time. Best thing to do
when you get bucked off a horse is get right back on. It's enjoyable,
I feel great when I do it, and I still have a scum-sucking pig of a
disease (MS) to cure.

I allow I may be encouraging Sgt Simian, by responding
to, and rebutting his inanities.

But I'm certain that ignoring him would actually
encourage him all the more, as that would let
his destructive fearmongering go unchallenged.
To further explain my point:

most regular perusers of these various x-posted
newsgroups recognize his hogwash for what it is.

But my concern is about incipient new ridership who
may be affected to any degree. The very subject
line of this thread was obviously designed to
dissuade people who may be considering bicycling.
Then he throws in unsubstantiated, unqualified,
unquantified, ostensibly hearsay statements like:
"Accident statistics on bicycling are horrific per
mile traveled."

Great way to promote bicycling, eh?

Impugning people with certain /federal/
political leanings, for some alleged sorry
state of affairs is just a feint to divert
attention, so his planted seeds of Fear,
Uncertainty & Doubt (about the safety of
bicycling) might quietly and subtly sprout in
the minds of folks thinking about taking up
the bicycling avocation.
The ol' hit-'n-run propaganda technique.

His seeds are weeds in a garden. We can't
ignore weeds in a garden. Not for very long,
anyway.

And to anybody in the world who is considering
[re]joining the ranks of bicyclists: there are
plenty of resources available on-line, in hard
copy, at your local cycling clubs and among your
cycling compatriots & peers, from which to learn
to ride safely and enjoyably. If you see people
already riding safely and enjoyably in your own
parts of the world, that should be proof enough
that BananaCreamBoy is working against you.


cheers,
Tom
