Ohhhhh, that's what he meant!

I can't resist.  I'm stuck at work due to some torrential rain and thought I'd follow up on the story from earlier today about one of our Colorado gubernatorial candidates.  Thankfully, his campaign spokesperson has provided some clarity on what candidate Dan Maes really meant when he criticized Denver's bike share program at a campaign rally recently.
Nate Strauch told The Associated Press that Maes was trying to say that the biking initiative is a "gateway program" being pushed by ECLEI on cities that eventually lead to extreme measures, such as the promotion of abortions and population control.
Maes said he thought promoting more bicycling was pretty harmless at first, but he realized later "that’s exactly the attitude they want you to have."
"It’s all part of this population control mentality that we as humans are the disease," Strauch said, adding: "He never said that biking is inherently wrong."

That's right!  THEY've got us riiiiiight where THEY want us. 

Off to laugh myself silly.


  1. It frightens me that ignorant loons like Maes and Sharron Angler in Nevada have any voice in public policy.
