What bike trail are you on?

         I was looking at some comments on a website after an article about crime in Indianapolis and read a comment about crime on a bike/walking trail that went through the heart of the city called the Monon Trail.  I figured I’d do a little research on “trails” and found this website that is all about trails.   http://www.traillink.com/   There are a lot of bike trails.  Bike trails are popping up all over the nation.  I am sure you’ve noticed them too. Have you wondered why the government is spending millions of dollars building bike trails?   As a kid I had no problem riding my bike around and I didn’t need a “trail” to do it.   Somethings happening here and unlike the lyrics from the Buffalo Springfield song, what it is – IS exactly clear.   They are preparing for their endgame goal which is to limit eliminate your car use and to encourage force you onto a bike or simply have you walk, ride a bus or train to get from point A to point B.  Don’t believe me? Read this.  What do you think they mean by “traffic calming”? They plan to impede the flow of cars to make driving a miserable experience.  Look here.  Roads will be turned into bike trails since cars will no longer be allowed on roads.    And for fun Google “cars are unsustainable” and see what comes up.  Your Western Civilization lifestyle is unsustainable. It’s going to be fun, you’ll see.

        Crimes like those occurring  on the Monon Trail are being repeated all across the country. Look here,  here,  here and here.  There are too many examples to list them all. Google it.   I looked at the “reviews” of the Monon trail and was amused by the candor  from several reviewers. Here’s one of them:

“…Then down around 38th street there is a four or six lane dangerous crossing with heavy traffic and on below that industrial and blighted area that I did not feel comfortable going through. I made it all the way to the interstate which is the southernmost end of the trail. There have been problems down this far with robberies and after reading about the need for increased surveilance [sic] and patrols I won’t be going here again without protection…. “

        I wonder what this bike rider means by “protection”?  Maybe they are thinking of bringing a handgun?  Well the commies are working hard at disarming us. Or a baseball bat? They’ve outlawed them in the UK so the people are left defenseless there.  How about a four legged companion?  There are commies who think we should eat our dog so you know where Fido is headed.   Read about it here.  Where are all the “animal” lovers?  Some of us know where all the aforementioned forms of protection are headed–outlawed and eventually exterminated because they have  a “carbon” footprint. You just can’t make this stuff up.

     Do they think ” increased surveillance” as in a  camera will save them? Really? Fools. Remember when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.  Here’s another comment…

“You have two choices: you can ride the north end near Carmel where it is crowded, or you can ride on the other side of town where it is blighted. The closer you go to the city the more streets you cross, the more unsafe you feel, and the less bikers you see…”.

Here’s one more just for the hell of it:

    “…The trail DOES go through the inner-city, but it is all very well lit, and I have never felt unsafe when riding. You just have to be smart, aware, and just as polite as usual. :-)…”

     Just be polite? Really? Is that all it takes?  Howdy folks, just passin’ on through, don’t rob me or assault me or kill me. If saying “please don’t hurt me” helped there would be thousands upon thousands of victims who would not have been a victim.   This bicyclist is a classic example of a someone who has been brainwashed and is now incapable of recognizing danger, who thinks all you have to do when finding yourself riding in an area where even the poor bastards living there don’t feel safe – is to be polite. Political correctness places people in harms way – in fact it kills.  He/she is what I call a  “moaner in waiting” .  Lots of moaning and groaning or even becoming permanently silenced await fools who don’t recognize the “danger” all around them.

      “Bike paths” or “walking paths” are all part of big daddy  (Oh, I better be PC, I don’t want to offend all the communitarians who hate men, especially White heterosexual men ) so I’ll call it –  Big Momma Agenda 21.  Don’t worry your little head about the communitarian philosophy  driving this agenda because those arbiters of truth and justice over at the SPLC said communitarians “only practice some communist principles”  Wow, I feel better already.  It’s just communism-light.   Phew.

         There will no longer be a safe, convenient, warm or cool car in the future for you, but you can take that bike path into hell. Eventually, you will begin to realize that bike paths all lead into cities because you won’t have anywhere else to go. You won’t be joy riding in the country. The urban growth boundaries will keep you locked in  “green” ghettos  incorrectly named “smart growth”.

       All people in rural areas will be driven off their land.   Roads are being erased and access to rural areas will be eliminated for all, but a few “chosen” people. And if you do venture out into the “uncharted forest” as Ayn Rand called it in her novel Anthem, one of the recently reintroduced carnivores awaits to bite your little head off and nibble on your tiny feet.   http://www.klamathconservation.org/docs/Carroll_LynxMarten_hi.pdf   You won’t be armed to attempt to protect yourself because they will have succeeded in taking all forms of self defense from you. http://www.infowars.com/amazon-disarms-brits-by-banning-self-defense-items/

     Millions and millions of tax dollars are being diverted away from repairing our roads and bridges and are used to build bike paths instead. http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/03/transportation-and-infrastructure-policy-more-state-and-less-federal-control

http://rootsinalpharetta.com/2011/03/four-ways-to-wreak-havoc-on-north-fulton-traffic/ 

     Search the terms “bike path and funding” and you will find all kinds of info.  “Walking” is the new form of “transportation”, don’t ya know?

     Have you  given much thought to  how radically inconvenient and hard life will become when your freedom to use the mode of transportation you desire is ripped away from you? Perhaps it’s time you did.  I bet this new mom wished she had a car. They like to portray what they are doing as creating some utopian fantasy-land where we will all join hands and sing songs.  How can there be happiness if you don’t have freedom?

Is there a car in your future? Wanna bet?

       The following editorial by Iris Stevens was originally submitted to the Jonesboro Sun with the headline:  “Legislating a Government-Created Utopia.” http://www.jonesborosun.com/e-Edition/

 Why We Believe Our Use of Cars Will Be Restricted

“I know many people just can’t believe that any of us could be wacky enough to believe the bizarre accusations we are making about UN Agenda 21 – and actually tying it to our local Jonesboro Vision 2030. Believe me, we understand!

We couldn’t believe it either when we were told by city officials at a Jonesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) meeting in November, 2010 (before they realized there was opposition) that in the near future not only our children and grandchildren would be riding bikes and walking rather than driving, but even the older adults sitting in the room would be as well. 2

And how believable is it that our federal government has passed legislation requiring every transportation agency to include bikeways and sidewalks in projects that receive any federal aid – and that snow must be removed from sidewalks and bikeways in the same manner as other roadways?  That comes straight from the US Department Transportation website signed by Obama’s Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood. 3

Who walks and rides bikes in the snow except maybe for fun or in an emergency? When did they slip that law through?  And why is building bikeways and snow removal so critical – in our dire economic times?

Not long ago President Obama campaigned across the nation for another $447 billion stimulus bill, bewailing our crumbling roads and dangerous bridges.  If our bridges are that dangerous, why are we building all these bikeways/walkways on money borrowed from China?  Just for recreation?  I don’t think so. Truck drivers say they see these bikeways all over the nation, but no one is on them. 4

And why is Obama planning to have high-speed rail available to 80% of the people in the next 25 years, with a $53 billion investment in the next six years, instead of fixing our crumbling roads and dangerous bridges?  Either we have lost our senses, or there is a design for this madness. 5

And why is our “local” Jonesboro Vision 2030 just like all the other local plans across the nation? As a teacher, would anyone expect me to believe that the students had really worked independently if they turned in work that similar?  I don’t think so.  It reminds me of our educational reforms that were always local and developed by us teachers – but were almost identical to the education reforms in every other state.

And then there is the 1996 “Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide” by the international group ICLEI, the key driver of Agenda 21, which outlined Comprehensive plans with the same purpose and principles as in Jonesboro Vision 2030. One was even called Vision 2020! Is that all a coincidence? 6

How does one explain all the articles, or propaganda, that make living without cars seem so appealing?  According to a New York Times article, “Residents of this upscale community…have given up their cars…in Europe, and the US as a component of a movement called ‘smart planning’…’When I had a car I was always tense.  I’m much happier this way,’ said Heidrun Walter.”  From the British Telegraph comes, “The European Union Will Ban Cars from Cities by 2050.” 7 & 8

In a recent news article, “The Secret fear of the world’s biggest auto companies,” the fear is that people will no longer be buying their cars.  Quote:  “All around the United States and Canada, people are thinking seriously about giving up their automobiles…Another question has begun to percolate: do I need a car at all?” 9

Then the buffoonish Michael Moore writes, “The things we call cars may have been fun to drive, but they are like a million daggers into the heart of Mother Nature,” and that the “President must immediately convert our auto factories to factories that build mass transit vehicles.” 10

In Arkansas, well known John Brummet wrote an article, “World Without Cars, Amen,” admitting that when liberals get together they do indeed talk about doing away with our cars, but he salves our fears by implying that the process will take a long time. 11

The radical transportation expert, Dan Burden promotes cities resembling those of 100 years ago, with walkable villages where no cars are needed.  Burden says that the best city is one where no car is needed to get around. 12

And who would believe that our Jonesboro City Planning Director, Otis Spriggs, attended Dan Burden’s EPA training and will implement many of Burden’s principles in Vision 2030 such as, “This Future Land Use Plan is very different from prior plans. This Future Land Use Plan has a very strong emphasis on urban design where “people live, work, shop, and play” in a pedestrian-friendly, village-like manner.”  13

Vision 2030 encourages and mentions “village centers,” “pedestrian friendly neighborhoods,” and “walkable communities” many times in Chapter 10 on Physical Development. 14 

These are only a few of the many things that cause us to believe there is indeed a push to restrict our use of cars in Jonesboro Vision 2030 based in the principles of UN Agenda 21.   For many of us this is about freedom; the freedom that will allow our children and grandchildren to live where and how they want, unencumbered by a nanny-state bureaucracy attempting to legislate a government created utopia.”

Quote from this planning guide: In 1992, the leaders of 179 countries gathered in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Earth Summit to finalize a global action plan for sustainable development, called Agenda 21. In this document, they recognized that because “so many of the problems and solutions being addressed by Agenda 21 have their roots in local activities, the participation and cooperation of local authorities will be a determining factor in fulfilling its objectives.  Taken from the Introduction by Maurice Strong at above link.

Chapter 10a Physical Development Element – Land Use  page 2, 3,  24 and 34 are a few of the pages. They will be numbered with PDa in front of the numbers.

         Here is my suggestion for all who have read the above article. Look at the following documents for your area: comprehensive plan, transportation plan,  and land use plan.   They are found by googling “your county name and those terms”.   Are the terms she references above found in your plans? I can guarantee they are. Why? Because UN Agenda 21 is global. It is the 21st century plan for the world. If you mobility is limited, your ability to escape is limited. It makes you very easy to control.
