While it does go against the current "green think" trends around the western world, I'd like to point out 2 things the statement of his brings up to those without a political or idealogical entrenched mentality.
1] It points out in a perhaps comical way the utter absurdity the argument that carbon has a 'footprint'. Certainly he's correct that a person doing nothing has a vastly reduced carbon output that a bicycle rider has. Caqrbon output is simply a vacant argument, who gives a shite.
2] This 'money grab' from government points out the extreme level of desperation that ALL government has towards getting more money to pay for,,,government,,,,in it's ultimate goal of the continuation of,,,,,government, and all of it's unfunded promises of guaranteed employee pensions, and other expected services.
Wow.. Just wow.... What a retard

Most likely Orcutt said that in jest as a sarcastic facetious remark to the bike shop owner. Orcutt does have some arguements that hold true, in that it's the cars and all the taxes that they pay to maintain roads, yet bikes don't pay anything, yet get to use those roads. Most likely defending the car lobbyists and the taxpayers lobby groups. But he's treading on thin water there, as one could turn that arguement around and say we alll need a shoe tax, because everyone uses the sidewalk and we need to pay for them and maintain them too.

Oh man... Going full retard should be taxed as well.
I guess some senator is going to sooner or later pass a bill saying that everyone, and I quite literally mean EVERYONE will be taxed for breathing as it is form of carbon foot printing.
I'm sure he'll soon be proposing a tax on anyone not owning a car. "These pedestrians walk on sidewalks, don't they? Who's going to pay for that?"
i don't know much about stupidy but i can tell you one thing, it's taking stupidity to a whole new level.
could not resist.
Remember this.... "The Bush administration announced today that states will have to comply with the new federal motorcycle seat belt law or face loss of highway funding."
Welcome to the United State of America! "Stupid is as stupid does."
um - he's a republican.
I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.
There is a new federal law that mandates elevator and escalator installations in all football, & baseball stadiums along with NASCAR ovals.
That will mean the fans will not need to exert themselves to get to their seats and will reduce their personal carbon footprint.
They'll also be enlarging all parking spaces for SUVs.
They'll be sewing emissions reading devices in our Jockies next... connect them to Smart Meters and they can tax you extra for farting during the Peak Flatulance Period.
