Gee, got anti-socialist sentiment much? Sheesh.

News flash, US: it's not a dirty word in the rest of the world.

Mind you, pretty good arguments against the bike share thing....

/looks at prices, notes OTT tone

Hang on, this is some kind of piss-take.

Yeah, forgot about that...

And not having that in mnd, it can be hard to tell if someone American is being straw-manningly sarcastic, or just belongs to the mind-bogglingly demented Limbaugh set.

I didn't scroll all the way down the first time; missed the links to other piss-funny stuff like Nanodrive...

Um, I think you'll find the OP brought it in by linking an article raving in the style of so many horrendous demagogues.
