Pete Buttigieg’s little bicycle theater is ridiculous
American Thinker, Apr 2, 2021

Little Petey Buttigieg is now playing in the big leagues, having made the tremendous leap from ineffectual mayor of a crime-ridden city to Transportation Secretary of the United States of America. To make a point about alternative transportation, he rode a bicycle to his first White House cabinet meeting – after first having several burly men drive him near the White House and then escort him and his bike. This kind of theater is typical for leftists, who often seem incapable of distinguishing fantasy from reality.
 
Last week, Little Petey (who always reminds me of a cross between Alfred “What, Me Worry?” Newman and Beaver Cleaver) let Americans know that being transportation secretary is more than focusing on roads and cars. Therefore, he tweeted out, “You should not have to own a car to prosper in this country, no matter what kind of community you’re living in.”

On Thursday, he decided to use his first White House cabinet meeting to make that point. He wasn’t going to drive to the White House. He was going to bike there. Except that was ridiculous because D.C. is a big, busy city and biking is a slow and vulnerable process.

What Little Petey actually did was to take a large SUV to some point near the White House. He then strapped on his cute helmet, had his three burly companions get his bike out of the car, and engaged in the theater of riding a bike to the White House, with a security guard biking at his side and the same SUV traveling behind him to keep him safe from errant vehicles:

Is Little Petey at the WH entrance when he gets on his bike --- and then pedals up the driveway???.

Use an armored Suburban to bring a bike within a short distance of the destination. Unload it and ride in with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy.

 From the article…

This kind of theater is typical for leftists, who often seem incapable of distinguishing fantasy from reality.



In this situation, we can roll our eyes and laugh at him. But this aspect of leftist, the inability of distinguishing fantasy from reality, is having real consequences
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

My car commute, by a fairly direct route, is ~10.5 miles. By Silicon Valley employees' standards, that's short. With moderate traffic it takes 15-20 minutes; with normal Pre-Covid traffic it took 25-35 minutes. A route on which bicycles would be allowed (= no freeways) would be at least 12-15 miles, and would take 60-90 minutes (every stoplight increases time uncertainty). Buses would take similar times, depending on how many times a different bus would be needed. Even a single "express" bus line requires getting from one's home to the bus stop and getting from the bus stop to one's place of work, easily doubling commute time (BTDTGTTS).

LimoLib Pete has little understanding of normal working people's lives and cares even less. Increasing mass transit at the expense of car use will, again (remember the '70s?), be an expensive, misery-increasing, boondoggle.

Why does little Petie believe we need to spend trillions on roads if bikes are the mode of transportation in the future?

If he is to be  believed, we should spend nothing as we will not need them as dirt paths are sufficient for bikes.

Don't forget all the trains that Lyin' Joe's big union boondoggle infrastructure bill would add. Trains and bicycles - hope no one needs to get anywhere in a hurry.

Pete is showing off that people have been so dumbed down that any manipulation, even bad ones, are sufficient to con the populace anymore.  ARE THEY?  Or are democrats showing overconfidence in their abilities.  I thought the clintons showed such years ago!

Nah, he gained notoriety as a wanker, which might fit in well in the halls of Government, but ain't the same.

Maybe he should charge the pedally people a mileage tax.

After all, if you burn motor fuel, you're already paying for infrastructure through fuel taxes.

Odd how its been so easily missed  Democrats love the Chinese and Russians and have greatly advanced their science and industry with our know how and money.  Then preach at us moving backwards towards a crude barbaric society is the right thing for us to do.  They also insist we need an end to the military and police to protect us, and they want us disarmed so we can't defend ourselves either.  What fools these mortals be that buy into that mindless stooge crap. Reagan made us strong, Carter, slick willy, Obama weakened the nation, Trump was building us back up.  Retards can't see the problem.
