more agenda 21 bull$**t.
I don’t think he’ll have a snowball’s chance, but right now I’m leaning towards Tancredo.
SOUND THE ALARM AGAINST SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
PART 1 of 2
Sounds like sancutary city Austin TX too.
I certainly don't have the solution----they get what they vote for there.............Too bad it affects all of us.
My strategy: 1) If McInnis wins the primary, vote for either McInnis or Tancredo--whichever has the best chance of defeating Hickenlooper. 2) If Maes wins the primary, vote for Tancredo.
ugh.. I sooooo dislike McInnis and I’m angry at the party for anointing him.
Denver got off lucky. The really left wing wackos want to force people to ride unicycles. [/joke]
Maes needs only to maintain a 5-point lead to win his primary, but getting this kind of press can dump him overnight.
His campaign manager or someone else should have discussed the way this issue can best be handled before he gave his talk to 50 supporters, and for sure before he talked to a reporter about it.
The bike agenda is for real, and we will all be affected--even bicyclists--when they restripe roadways and make driving more difficult than it is already in cities. It needs to be debated in a rational way (as does immigration), not colored by talk of UN control and un-Constitutional treaties.
Using the word "kooky" and relating this to the UN opens the door for opponents (and that would mean nearly all enviros) to label Maes a "conspiracy theorist" who cannot be taken seriously.
The news story did at least name the organization that's trying to take over the world: ICLEI. Looking at its web site, which is full of the usual garbage about sustainability, renewable energy, green power, etc., I see not much difference from the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth and like organizations. What is most disturbing is that so many of our cities are "members."
We shouldn't be funding interest groups out of (limited) city budgets. That's using your taxes to buy influence and effect policies that you may personally find offensive. It's the same, to my way of thinking, as having government-supported churches.
Did Maes not recognize this, or was it simply omitted from the article?
I was listening to Lisa Fritsch on KLBJ this morning and some callers just don’t get it. They cannot believe she is a black, conservative woman who did not vote for zero.
Make it illegal for anyone over 16 to ride a bike!!
I only listen to the radio when I’m in my car, so missed that this morning....when I do listen, though, I have always been impressed with Lisa.
Rush just had a liberal - obviously black lady - on the phone and she was as clueless as some of the KLBJ callers.
Just another clueless democrap.....
I’m not now, or never have been much into riding a bicycle, but if I were, I wouldn’t do it today, because I wouldn’t be seen in one of those idiot helmets!
I came close to barfing the other day when I saw a father walking with his 3 or 4 yr old kid on a tiny bicycle with training wheels, and she had on one of those helmets that looked like it weighed more than the kid did.
I don’t have a problem with your suggestion that he mention the sanctuary city thing. I do however see great merit in touching on the Agenda 21 nonsense, which is very insidious.
Most people think of the U.N. as a tall building in New York. They don’t realize there are U.N. or (U.N. facilitating) agencies and offices all across this nation.
They love to prey on our youth.
Um, why would you wear it? No one is making you... yet.
I wouldn’t wear anything, unless it was a baseball cap to shield my eyes from the sun. I think, but don’t know for sure, that there is a law in TX now that says you must wear a helmet on public streets or roads while bicycling.
