    How long must we – the REAL Mercer Island residents – be silent? I will no longer hold my tongue and abide your unspeakable lies. Yet another post that promotes an irresponsible pro-bicycle, earth-loving, pro-recycling agenda.

    It sickens me that this type of extreme cyclophilia and nature-cult behavior exists at all – but to openly invite others to join? Your link to “Winterize Your Bike Commute” is ironic: do you think your bike will need to winterized in HELL? Because that’s the road that you are cycling down. Keep your disgusting habits away from us God-fearing citizens who understand that His will is best served in a roomy, powerful 4×4 Sport Utility Vehicle with a well-appointed leather interior.

    Freedom isn’t free – it’s a thorny, scrub-like bush, or possibly a tree, no definitely a bush, that must be nurtured with BLOOD. Fertilizer as well, but mostly BLOOD and also STRONGLY WORDED BLOG COMMENTS. I have heard the call and now I will not be silenced, I will not be muzzled, I will speak. I will be heard. Unless of course you have the unspeakable nerve not to approve this blog post. WHY ARE YOU AFRAID TO ENGAGE IN REASONED DIALOGUE?

    It’s time to reclaim Mercer Island. Our forefathers settled this island and left us a legacy. They established a strong, righteous culture based on property rights, servant ownership, and rigorous adherence to the value of being white. Let’s rip our bloodied, tattered banner of freedom out of the mossy, bicycle grease-besmirched paws of these unholy demon bloggers. OUR TIME IS NOW.

    Thanks for reading, Chauncey. While I can’t agree with all of the views you’ve expressed here, I do agree that blood, fertilizer and strongly worded blog comments are the foundation of freedom.
