Default Honk for the Revolution!

Total frustration in trying to ride a bike on the road and mixed
paths. Dog owner leaving poop behind, drivers blasting the horn,
calling us names, trying to make life miserable for us. They succeeded
in terrorizing us for the time being. Time to look for alternatives
and reinforcements.

I want to wear this t-shirt that says, "Honk for the Revolution!"
Perhaps we can channel bad energy into good one. I'd get depressed if
I don't find a way to outsmart them.

Other option is go SUPing (paddle board) and leaving land altogether.
The ocean is another world without much mundane stress. When one world
closes on you, look for another reality. This is a sad world. Make it
a beach.

Default Honk for the Revolution!

We came under attack while in the "safety" provided by one of these...

http://streetswiki.wikispaces.com/fi...w-bikelane.jpg

Pretty declarations --that cars should share the lane-- without
enforcement mean nothing. In a way it reminds of a story that carries
a lot of wisdom...

THE KINGDOM OF THE LION, by Aesop

THE BEASTS of the field and forest had a Lion as their king. He was
neither wrathful, cruel, nor tyrannical, but just and gentle as a king
could be. During his reign he made a royal proclamation for a general
assembly of all the birds and beasts, and drew up conditions for a
universal league, in which the Wolf and the Lamb, the Panther and the
Kid, the Tiger and the Stag, the Dog and the Hare, should live
together in perfect peace and amity. The Hare said, "Oh, how I have
longed to see this day, in which the weak shall take their place with
impunity by the side of the strong." And after the Hare said this, he
ran for his life.

***

ANALYSIS: The world is full of pretty declarations that are not
enforced in real life. One example is the simple, MORAL act of riding
a bike --which is legal and yet it makes you fair game for the
predators behind the wheel.

The solution is to REVERSE the hierarchy and make pedestrians, for
example, have priority over cyclists, cyclists over cars, and so on.
Then enforce the laws and educate the people.

Leave it to the geese.


Actually a driver stopped patiently for a duck crossing the street.
Birds remain free for the most part and know nothing of our struggle
for survival.


You quack me up.


"Quack, quack for the Revolution!"


Just before I do SUPing I want to say this much: THE BEACH IS FULL OF
****!

That's dog **** AND cat ****. But, of course, it only applies to the
land not the water. Feral cats number hundreds and the beautiful
people bring their fine dogs to do poop, often leaving the crap
behind. A tourist girl caught a disease from it and the **** spread to
Europe, so they were forced to do some damage control, or at least
public image control. They had a sophisticated computer show where the
cat concentrations were at the city's disposal. Other people were
infected later and who knows what happened next, but the cats are
still there and some people feed them openly. The cat people sure have
a mission in life, and then retire to their cages --free of cats.

And the monkey is throwing the **** back at them... Just kidding.

downright cruelty about people struggling at worse. Cain says

is dipping

Isn't freedom a state of mind?

The free market is the best answer to solve economic problems.


I don't think a free market will ever be allowed.
It's not in the power elites' interest to have
competition from all and sundry.


Some of the power elite understand that a rising tide does lift all
boats.

Good arguent if you own all the boats.


It's very simple:

If you don't own a boat... you drown.

If you don't have a car... you are grounded.

If you don't drive a truck... you are nothing.

I just cut a piece of plywood using my Chinese made saw. Do you think
that could be part of the problem? Some Chinese place made that saw
and the American money it cost wound up in China. Why do you suppose
that is?

You should be buying "Proudly made in USA." If not available buy made
in Taiwan or Korea.

Don't buy little American flags... they are made in China.
