more agenda 21 bull$**t.
SOUND THE ALARM AGAINST SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
PART 1 of 2
Sounds like sancutary city Austin TX too.
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?
Make it illegal for anyone over 16 to ride a bike!!
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.
