Re: “The cycling epidemic

I have raised 2 teenagers and liveliness a road that is frequented by exercising cyclists who drive to my neighborhood, Park and ride our roads. Although our community despises them, their numbers only grow. I mention my teens because they were both traumatized while learning to drive, by the rudeness of the cyclists, and the fear of what to do, my wife and I both feared the worst, when a young driver is faced with passing on curved roads, because a biker refuses to move. I explained to one avid rider about my concerns, they then told me they carry a gun just in case drivers get too aggressive... Really?! You come to my neighborhood, armed and ready to aggregate? I was shocked, this is crazy. I used to ride myself, but i now go to a gym, and get my exercise without being a nuisance, roads were built for transportation not aerobics.

Re: “Understanding Kojo Nantambu

YT is right. Abraham Lincoln said the Blacks would have been better off if all the slaves would have been detoured from America and gone straight to South American countries. I'm not a racist, but I am objectionable to complainers and those who try to bring down this country for their own self pity and shortcomings. Slavery is over...Deal with it!

Re: “The cycling epidemic

The point is that if you decide to bike on a busy road, don't be surprised if you get ran over on that same busy road---Do you think it would be wise for a mother to walk with her baby stroller and her 14 month old child on the non-existent shoulder during rush hour? No? Then what makes you think its a bright Idea to ride a bike? Because you are going 17 mph faster than the walking mother?
Dead is dead------who's fault it is really doesn't matter-----

Re: “The cycling epidemic

So I need to leave our country if I expect a logical complete street arrangement and equitable means of getting around? Healthy active transportation means healthier populace. If people drove everywhere that would certainly offset the occasional accident since an in active lifestyle is far more dangerous that cycling to get from A to B. You would prefer a polluted, congested, expensive, closed off, miserable, and poorly planned city? Luckily, more people want better than that. I am sorry your city did a poor job of adding bike lanes, perhaps it was a design flaw... but to be so obtuse about any-and-all bike inclusion in the scope of transportation? It really serves no one. It is sad.

Re: “Have a Lawyer on Us!

You're an idiot. This is Brett Buzek. I stayed there and was in jail for three days before I went to court, never left and I did 72 hours of community service and paid 1100 in fines. which i was on a payment plan for. because at the time I was 22 years old and made 36k a year and had a daughter and wife at home. I was in a BUSINESS trip genius. Meaning my the BUSINESS I worked for paid for my flight, hotel etc, people make mistakes and need a little financial assistance sometimes. Get off your high horse. Dick.

Re: “Verdict in Montgomery trial answers few questions

Doubt the jury was reminded that technically he had the legal right to resist unlawful arrest, to whatever degree necessary, even using deadly force. Sounds like Bruce steen was planted to help steer the jury away from a technically fair trial being that it's a very likely possibility montgomery's actions were technically lawful.

Re: “Understanding Kojo Nantambu

Go back to Africa where you have existed for over 10,000 years and have never invented a damn thing. Still living in sh*t huts and eating animal dung. Zimbabwe threw out the only productive people in the country the White farmers and took their farms. Now the farms are desolate and non producing and Zimbabwe is on International welfare. Before those farmers feed the country and exported food. See any similarites? Non productive and on the government dole. I've got an idea, y'all want to be African-Americans why not just be Africans? You are all such geniuses go back to Africa (richest in resources in the world) and have your own country were there are no White people to bother you. Then you can build the great Black empire and show the world how great you are without the White man holding you down.

Oh, good. Bikers have shown up to be hipsterish and condescending. I was hoping that would happen.

Re: “The cycling epidemic

Remember the fat people in the movie Wall-E? You are the embodiment of those people, but you don't have a fancy hoverchair. Instead, you schlep your fat behind from the couch to the car to the officechair and wonder why *other* people are so stupid.

Is this the Rutgers study you are referring to?

Re: “The cycling epidemic

The goal: Reduce dependence on foreign oil
The goal: Reduce green house gasses
The goal: Stem America's obesity epidemic
The goal: Reduce heart disease
The answer: Eliminate bike riders???? Really?
Not to mention the fact that the roads don't belong to just those financially able to purchase, maintain, repair, insure, and fuel a car. Some people have other needs for that $10,000 a year.

Re: “School daze: Rethinking college education

I am shocked by how much college costs today. Of course I went to a state two year institution after my high school college advisor told me "you're not college material" and then transfered to a an out of state university who took all my credits but never at the rates today's colleges charge. There would be no way I could have attended. It is sad that high school advisors are either clueless or biased that kids are robbed of a livelihood after schools rob citizens of their wallets in the name of education. States should ban teacher's unions because all they do is to insure teachers get benefits and the heck with students.

Re: “Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's domestic-violence double standard

Tara - come on now honey. After Robert Wood was fired from CMPD he was hired by Cornelius. He was then fired from Cornelius because he was caught on video peeking into a woman's restroom at Harding High School. CMPD did the right thing by letting him go. Let's practice responsible reporting.

Re: “Is Michael Harvey a murderer?

Why didn't you mention that she is the daughter of a police chief? I recalled that fact, verified it on google news. It seems germane to your column topic.

Re: “The abuse revolving door keeps spinning

The problem is not DSS per se. The problem is that there is only ONE agency allowed to investigate ALL child abuse complaints. It is the monopoly that's the problem. DSS is the only allowed to take kids out of the home, to investigate child abuse claims, etc.

This is an unfair and inefficient monopoly. In times past, family members could handle this internally. Churches got involved, friends got involved without fear of reprisal from an all-powerful megaState and it's DSS arm.

Re: “The abuse revolving door keeps spinning

@ West Headhunter: people at DSS do take their job seriously and do everything within our power to protect children. What exactly is it that YOU do to protect children? Make comments on an article written by an uninformed idiot?

I work in child protective services, I work really hard, everyday, to keep children safe. I do care about the children on my caseload- otherwise, I wouldn't have a graduate degree and continue to make peanuts. I stay in my job b/c I want to make a difference.

Tara is ignorant. It is so easy to sit on your self-righteous ass and point the finger at everyone else.
