    Original How's this for an idea? Mandatory, universal $10.00 parking fee
    It's a pretty stupid idea jackass.

    Here's one thing I've noticed: The areas where walking and biking are popular are areas where parking is a pain in the ass.

    It's not about the relative decency of the population.

    It's about how much of hassle it is to drive.

    Why not just make that universal?

    Every time you park a car: pay $10.00.

    People would think long and hard about whether or not a car is the best mode of transportation.

    And they'd sure as hell make more of an effort to combine errands. No more moving from one end of the parking lot to the other just for convenience. (Which I've actually done as much as I hate to admit it)

    Naturally people with disabilities would be exempt so spare me those whines.

    Guess we'll only be hearing from people where it's either over 100 degrees or below freezing every day.

    Not sure what to about Drive-Thrus though.

    That will require further study.

    And what pray tell would your "Fee" get used for???
    This is so stupid even the DUmmies call him out...:eek::D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    They're all like the muskrat that will chew off three of its legs and still have one caught in the trap.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Taxing someone for parking?

    How about this,to stop global warming we charge everyone a dollar for farting.

    Here's another one, everytime a guy gets a boner, here has to pay a dime ( between the ages of 12 to 70, we'll make trillions) this fights over ppulation.

    Maybe we charge for wetdreams, or watching a sunset, or complaining about the weather.

    Or we could just charge Moonbats a hundred bucks everytime they mention taxing people for stupid sh*t; the national debt would be wiped out in a week.

    I have a better idea. You get a tax credit of 10 bucks every-time you run over a dummie biker. Plus, you get extra bonus points if you demolish their bike and put them in the hospital. :)

    Which wouldn't be a problem since their Obama has provided them with universal healthcare.

    My brother used to say stuff like that when he first got his driver's license. We'd pass someone on a bike, and he'd say "ten points for a guy on a bike". Or whatever about the person he saw that bugged him was worth whatever number of points he felt was appropriate.


    Ironically, as an adult, my brother is a cyclist, who rides about 20 miles a day for exercise, and participates in races.

    They do it in Japan. It was something like $50 a year.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    And due to inflation he is now worth 50 points.

    Cyclists do not bother me; most them stay on the edge of the road. Assholes that walk or jog in the street piss me off. That what they made sidewalks for but they think they are entitled to the road. Playing chicken with a 3k pound vehicle is kinda stupid.
