You Can Not Make This Shit Up

Fortunately, you don't have to. The TeePee'ers will do it for you.

I remember when the only vehicles the U.S.'s suspiciously right-wing were afeared of were black helicopters. But the menace is spreading. Now we must fear . . . bicycles. Shared bicycles. Bicycles themselves may be benign, of course. You could buy one for your kid, and no harm done.

But sharing? It is the bĂȘte noire of the right wing in the U.S. It . . . it's so communal!

First, they socialized our medicine, and I said nothing, because I wanted a free government hand-out. Then, they began to establish municipal bike-sharing programs, and still I said nothing, because, um, good exercise, cheap, environmentally-friendly, maintenance-free transportation? But
that’s exactly the attitude they want you to have.
