Scarytale Of New York

Despite Bloomberg's health obsession, New York seems suprisingly eager to bash cyclists these days. Following swiftly on from previous articles, here is another example of petty victimisation in the USA's least free state (with a splash of added humour).


The Big Apple is looking rather rotten of late, is it not?

Big Apple, rotten to the core, and Bloomberg, whom citizens voted to not allow a third term for mayor and whom Bloomberg over-ruled popular vote and enabled himself to run anyhow, is the rot.

New Yorkers once had the reputation of being the toughest individualists on the planet. Now, they're just living in the least free state in the US, with New Jersey and California in the 49th and 48th lowest ranking, just behind them (according to the recent Mason University annual study on least free states in the union).

UK Telegraph and Delingpole apparently printed a story today saying just how nutty, these liberals like the ones running NYC, have become.

Sympathy really rather evaporated when the first words out of his mouth were 'I'm doing the world a favour riding a bike!'...

Weird state. Gay marriage is legalised while its major city makes cycling subject to more and more restrictions. Maybe there's some kind of subconscious, minimum level of authoritarian cockwaffle which governments default to, so that freedom gained in one area must be counterbalanced by fucking things up for a different group.
