Hell, we are in the middle of a revolutionary socialist takeover. How are we supposed to be expected to recognize satire?

I went to college in Washington, D.C. (American University), and some of my fondest memories are riding my bicycle on those bike lanes around the district, especially out to Teddy Roosevelt Island. And I don’t have a problem with the government building them, or having tolls on them, either. I’d pay for it and go for a spin. Building roads is one of the enumerated powers of the federal government, and at least when I was there, the bike lanes were well designed. It’s all the other s**t the government is doing that isn’t in Article 8 which leads to the current troubles.

They need to put a HOT lane on “Going To The Sun” highway in Glacier. Lane should be on cliff side. “Ooops! Didn’t mean for you to go over!”

This nation’s ‘leadership’ has gone past silly, blown right through being daffy. and landed solidly into insanity.

No wonder a bunch of goat humping inbreds think they can take us over.

They have our worthless, cowardly, traitorous Nancy Boy leaders wetting their Rainbow Onesies.

Our leaders worry about building bicycle lanes, they close down coal mines, and plot to disarm Americans while the muzzies are building nuclear capability and running all over the map killing people with weapons our own president gave them.

Interesting. My copy says “To establish Post Offices and post Roads”

I think BIKE trails, HO or otherwise, let alone TOLL BIKE TRAIL(s), is a far stretch from those enumerated powers.

IMO, it’s ‘funny’ how ‘Conservative’ those on this board get when it comes to something THEY utilize/champion...right out the F* window. Odd, isn’t it?

If they use the bike path to deliver mail, it qualifies.

Yes, but is it legal forcing children to peddle you to work?
