Many so called conservatives are not really conservatives. They preach free markets but conveniently get government to subsidize their roads, highways and oil/auto production.
Highways built as Main Streets has become a serious problem and has made a larger group of the public dependent on government subsidies. Last week Limbaugh called cyclists mosquitoes. I suppose they should be just wiped off the windshields of lazy drivers. Jack
I agree, the "conservatives" can be looked up in the thesaurus as "hypocrites" as well. Most conservatives that I have come across love to pick and choose what they are "conservative" about. As far as bikers, they should ride with extreme safety, especially in crowded traffic areas. There are outrageous drivers who are intentionally a little careless.
A great bike safety site is Bike Safety which really lays out the securities to take. Also, a great U-Lock can do wonders for bikers in shady neighborhoods (and everyone who owns a bike really). I usually buy mine from Bike Locks
