    From what I can tell, the anti-car types don’t like cars specifically _because_ of that freedom and flexibility.

    Today’s anti car traffic planners have really bought America closer by letting us all be together in their parking lots that once were called freeways.

    Ken’s on the nose. The anti-car types are also the central management fans, who don’t want the Deplorables going much of anywhere without the assent of central control. I’m a cyclist and I enjoy the hell out of it, but the bicycle’s not a practical way to get back and forth to work, at least where I live, where we have this thing called “winter,” attended by “ice” and “snow.” I can also ride mine 130 miles in a single day, but that’ll be my entire day’s project; I can’t carry anything with me, and I’ll be super-tired, ultra-sweaty, and completely unfit for human company when I arrive. By car, that’s a two-hour jaunt, you can take along a lot of stuff, and you’re fresh as a daisy when you get there. No, I think they want us all depending on buses and trains. Then it’s totally up to them whether we go to a particular place or not. No wonder the ruling class hates cars.

    Yeah, get rid of the cars, ride a motorcycle. LOL. Bikes are more fun anyway. ; )

    who don’t want the Deplorables going much of anywhere without the assent of central control

    Or living just anywhere. In the article they divide people into poor cities and rich cities. No comprehension that some of us live outside.

    My town is approaching 25K people. A group just did a long study on mass transit. The only workable solution they could find is “Kerr-Konnect,” a ride service using volunteers and donations. We’ll see.

    Oh, and those “poor” and “rich” cities? I have a feeling that it’s more a matter of cost of living and which party runs the city council.

    I’m sure you noticed that several of the “Reasons women live longer” have to do with scaffolding.

    Car haters hate freedom. Period.

    My grandfather, Master’s in Physics, commuted to his job as school principal. My mother, PhD in Psych, commuted to the university to teach. Me, a BSME, commuted to my office job–and used the car to pull a loaded stock trailer to the auction barn.

    Took Sweet Lady along on a wandering drive from Terlingua, Texas, to Jasper, Alberta, thence down the Pacific coast to San Francisco and then home. 6,000 miles in a month. I saw it as a right limited only by my billfold. Seeing beautiful country is better first-hand, as compared to looking at somebody else’s photos.

    Personal opinion. Not too many cars; too many people.

    When will the NRA demand the immediate and complete repeal of all gun laws in the US?
