    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...

    Why not leave the politics out of the MECHANICS FORUM?

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

    ...Do you imagine it's possible to divorce anything from politics?

    Anyway, after recent developments, who could possibly object to Limbaugh and his dittoheads being called demented?
