Notably absent was anyone from the DOT who continues to not take bikes seriously. Their current weird obsession with roundabouts is an utter slap in the face to cyclists.

The nit you pick is if "the word" was used or not, wmarancic, the fact is, the 800 pound gorilla in your living room is, that the Republican party is 99 and 44/100 white (or something close to that).
The bleating we hear from the fake conservatives about the liberal racist agenda is smoke and mirrors, pure and simple, to cover up your own glaring flaw.
You truly are the emperors with no clothes.

While I disagree with a large part of the WTPoNY agenda, I fully and enthusiastically support Mr. Schulz. Here's the other shoe dropping Mr. Silver, at least until your kind are purged from the Capital. You may now pay out of your nose.

wmarincic, if you're going to cut 'n paste entire paragraphs from others work on the internet, you should attribute that to them. A simple Google search proves you're plagiarizing.

Or the Puritans of Massachusetts? Or the anti-abortion terrorists? Not anti-Muslim but 'death to non-believers' none the less. I'm not going to play Whack-a-Mole over this, each side has its socio/psychopaths. Westboro church and their supporters (wmarincic?) are just the latest Christian variety. The Golden Rule, remember that?

"Hand out religious tracts"?!?!
And a pig's head on a pole too? How about the outright insults on the posters? You're dishonest by omission, wmarincic.
Noble Christians indeed!

Here's what the Wayne Co. Sheriff's department said responding to accusations the protestors wee not protected adequately:
"The Wayne County Sheriff's Department saw it differently, placing blame on the protesters for inciting the altercation."
"'While Sheriff Napoleon respects everyone’s right to freedom of speech, it’s unfortunate that some have chosen to exploit and taint what was to be a peaceful, community event,' the department said."
I did watch the video(s) because I wasn't aware of this. Those who pervert the first amendment the US Constitution to prevent others exercising their religious freedom are bullies and cowards.
So who are you siding with wmarincic? The police or the christian crazies? Tough call, I suppose. Who do you suppose Jesus would side with?

muggy - "That sounds so nice"
Why is it that it sounds like you hate those not as fortunate as perhaps you are? These are your fellow Americans (I'm assuming you are too). That kind of condescension reeks of unamerican. I guess you're not aware of that?
The knee-jerk response to this kind of criticism is to say you "love" the less fortunate and want them to work hard to pick themselves up, which is laughable in it's simplicity. As if all the less fortunate were just not working hard enough. In fact the vast, vast majority are actively looking for work, or have issues that legitimately affect how employable they are. Our society will be judged by how we treat the less fortunate among us. Does that matter to you?
The second myth you seem to express is that the "invisible hand of capitalism" will somehow make us all a balanced prosperous society. Of course to believe that is to completely deny the reality of the finance industry's deregulation (and I agree that Clinton had much to do with that so please don't try to cloud the issue with that worn-out noise).
What continues to shock me is the common thread running through yours and others with this now all-too-predictable reaction, is one of greed and the 'I got mine', walled community attitude. And right now America really needs to have the business community's participation. Put in Capitalist terms, we need to get more people spending money buying the widgets. Otherwise it's just another government welfare program to keep giving handouts to business.

And what was your input to the act? Oh, that's right, 'more guns for everyone!'
Since you gun freaks offered nothing, you should accept what you got. If you don't vote, you've got nothing to complain about.

A simple post to an online newssite can't come close to expressing our gratitude to all on the front lines of this event. But a heart-felt "well done" to all who kept the peace, fixed the damage, healed the wounds. Thanks to you all.
