    Also, since Bernie visited the Soviet Union on his honeymoon, I guess that means Bernie supports oppressive military dictatorships. Transitive property and all.

    Of course it's not going to happen. And certainly Mayor Pete doesn't think so either. Biden might be demented enough to believe it. Though, I'm not entirely sure he knows it's 2019.

    Pete is almost certainly saying it to get elected. That's your primary goal. Get elected.

    Sure. I will not be voting for him in the primary. And, I will be holding my nose in the election booth if I am forced to vote for him in 2020.

    Then as previously discussed multiple times, you're a fuking idiot (sorry Kep, but he deserved that one). Buttigieg is my 4th choice behind Lizzy, Biden and Bernie but I will enthusiastically back the man in a contest vs Chump. You have to be a special kind of dolt to have to "hold your nose" in a choice between Trump and Buttigieg.

    I'm a ****ing idiot for taking a principled stand on an issue I care about? Really? That's how you want to play it?

    He is exactly the kind of candidate the founding fathers would have endorsed. Something to keep in mind.

    I'd like to hear the rationale for this statement.

    I work downtown Mpls. I can't begin to tell you how many times cyclists just ignore the rules. I'd bet the split between those who observe the rules and those who act like jerks is around 50-50. More often than not, when an accident happens at the intersections, we find out that he cyclist jutted out into an intersection. When I worked on the 700 block of Marquette Ave S (across the street from the IDS Tower), there would be about one biker on the pavement from shooting out into the intersection when they didn't have the light. A former coworker of mine would bike into the office daily. She would get so frustrated by those guys, and really concerned with them too. (I guess the winter bikers are a tight knit group around here.)

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Not sure, but either way Chelsea, Pete, myself, and DGF are all just Little Eichmanns to trixie.

    You don't have to be greedy to question expenditures for bike lanes.

    I guess but I really don't see any downside to encouraging people to bike rather than drive and expend calories rather than fossil fuel. People being idiots on their bikes is an entirely different conversation from infrastructure planning.

    I'd like to see cities experiment with alternating roads between cars and bikes. IMO it's insane to have them share, so I'd make, say, 1st avenue northbound motorized, 2nd southbound motorized, 3rd both ways bike, and repeat. Same for east/west traffic.
