Bike share racks!
New bike share racks, great. Look at that Zip Car ad!
The city was making preparations yesterday for what appeared to be one of many new “bike share racks” throughout the mile square.
You know, because people are too stupid to own and care for their own bicycles in today’s day and age. No, they have to pay an ongoing membership and continual usage fees for community bikes! All in the name of… uh, what exactly?
Sadly – almost no one will actually “do the math” to realize that the money they will eventually spend (if they’re dumb enough to partake) will far exceed a nice top of the line bicycle they can own and use whenever they want – and wherever they want in the future. Not only that – a bike purchased RETAINS much of it’s value, especially if it’s well cared for and a premium brand. But who think’s logically these days? We think “paycheck to paycheck!”
We have a “rental” society that sadly buys into this propaganda.
Either way – interesting that Zip Car, which “replaced” Hertz 24/7 is one of the major sponsors of this program. A $100,000 check into city coffers (likely Don Zimmer’s pockets) gets you at least two years as the retarded “corner car” provider. Coincidence?
God help us!
