How about those that enjoy an activity pay for it. We could add a surcharge on bicycles of say $50, reinstitute a bicycle license with an annul fee to be paid by bike users, a bicycle mileage charge say .01 per 100 hundred miles ridden after all the bike user is avoiding paying gasoline taxes every time they ride and still using the same roads as cars. Other outdoor activities pay their way, fishing requires a fee, hunting as well, camping costs money. I believe spending tax dollars should for the majority of time be directed at the greatest good for the greatest number of citizens. This is a first world problem, imagine the social goodwill that could be accomplished if a simple fee was added to the cost of $1000 bike a fee that could be used to feed the hungry, there are 47,000 households in El Paso county that suffer from food insecurity every single day, that means hungry children that live in fear. Just my thoughts I could be wrong.
Since all the police officers have to take the test I would be curious to know how many men have also failed.
I so agree and that sandwich, I had ham and Gruyère was amazing. I am so sorry I missed eggs Benedict.I won't next time.
What a wonderful program and why not give it a chance, lord knows the standard treatments have proven to be very ineffectual. Bravo!
I ate there once and probably never again. Had the chicken fried steak which was as tough as eating a shoe sole dipped and fried. The steak came stacked right on top of the dirty gray mashed potatoes and some steamed veggies, lets just say the veggies were the best part of the meal.
The Awesome Mountain Bike Rider.
They are never seen wearing anything other than Performance Ultra Shorts and Jersey and clicking along on tile floors at the coffee shop in their Shimano MTB Shoes still damp with sweat and smelling like it. They know the name of every awesome single track and have a GoPro permanently mounted to their helmet. They will only go riding with you to build up their own awesome rep for bombing a trail and to watch you on your boing-boing as you go down with the ship and then later post your involuntary dismount video on Facebook.
