The City of Minneapolis now effectively has a department of WALKING.
Apparently the citizens of Minneapolis are so stupid they need a GOVERNMENT PROGRAM TO TEACH THEM HOW TO WALK OR BIKE! Here is the PDF file in its entirety, but allow me to point out three major things.
1. The goals or objective of this program only betray it for it's true purpose: to employ otherwise unemployable people.
"BUILD A CULTURE OF COURTESY, ACCEPTANCE AND SAFETY FOR ALL MODE SHARES????"
"LONG TERM COMMITTED STAKEHOLDERS????"
"SOCIAL NORM WHERE WALKING AND BIKING ARE PART OF EVERYDAY ROUTINES?"
How, precisely is the government supposed to do this? Is this not just done naturally? And when it is -10 degrees outside with 13 inches of snow, HOW DOES WALKING/BIKING BECOME A PART OF AN EVERYDAY ROUTINE?
2. WALK AMBASSADORS/CLASSES ON WALKING
-Holy "My Nephew Needs a Job" Batman. A WALK AMBASSADOR???? Seriously, what worthless individual with a worthless degree is going to get that job? How much you want to bet he's related to somebody on the city council? Any takers?
- CLASSES ON WALKING??????? Wha, huh, fra?????
3. You combine this BS with the $200,000 used to get Minneapolis Citizens to drink tap water and the $50,000 per drinking fountain program, AND THE CITY COUNCIL, ALONG WITH THE IDIOTIC VOTERS OF MINNEAPOLIS WONDER WHY THERE'S A BUDGET CRUNCH!?
So look, let me put it to you this way folks.
Never move or invest in Minneapolis. Seriously. Just don't bother investing or living here. The voting population is so liberal and so damn ignorant of basic public finances, that you may as well live in North Korea. You will see Minneapolis become a colder version of Detroit before your days are over, please be an observer, not a participant.
