commented on Idiot ESPN Writer Pretends to Be the Voice of God While Talking Shit About Jason Collins
I'm not saying it needed to be a star, or even a starter, but is anyone else just slightly disappointed that the guy isn't even on a team? It's probably more likely he makes a team now as the NBA (fuck you NBA) wouldn't want to appear intolerant but at the time he came out he is not on a team. This makes "active" not true.
Will there will always be an asterisk next to this piece of history?
Sort of like how when Hillary is president I'm going to think "well, that's nice but it woud be cool if a woman could be president without first having to be the first-lady."
Then again where are those "but Obama isn't REALLY black" people these days? Nowhere.
Maybe it doesn't matter.
commented on Dems' Budget Would Tax Bicycles to Pay for Freeways
Normally your constant trolling is fucking stupid but on this one you have a good point. These taxes are regressive as hell and hopefully don't pass.
As for a bicycle tax that's the dumbest tax Iv'e ever heard of. The macro benefits far outweigh any investment put into it and cities should be trying like hell to increase ridership as much as possible.
It reminds me of how much money the area wastes while buses hold up traffic during rush hour waiting for some asshole to cough up some change. Busses should be free during rush hour if not for the traffic savings alone and we should be paying cyclists for not driving.
Here's an idea: lets put a special tax on top of sales tax on condoms? Health food? Child care?
Tax breaks on cigarettes, guns, and fast food?
Democrats are so fucking useless the only thing you can hope for is that nothing they try works. And yes, they are still better than the far more capable Republicans. Who would very capably fuck everyone over on purpose.
I don't care about paying $25 buck the next time I buy a bike. Whatever. But the idea is so stupid and misguided it pisses me off.
