Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

The Official BFSSFG Political Thread

Don't be timid!

Voice your thoughts and concerns on Politics.

We may be divided on many issues but at least we can agree that cyclists are intelligent enough to discuss politics in a polite and courteous fashion.

Can we skip the preliminaries and jump right to the abusive and snarky responses?

Did you bother to read any other threads on this forum? We can't even discuss saddles in a courteous manner.

When I vote I write in "None of the Above" for each race. Generally takes like 20 min. and makes the line longer for all the suckers who really want to vote.

I'll start it off. Where does the U.S. constitution say that a women can murder a baby while she is pregnant?

And why is it ok to kill the baby 1 month before birth, when it is perfectly capable of living outside the womb, but it is illegal to kill the baby 1 month after birth?

if you want to talk politics, there is a subforum already in place - go there (here is a link to to that cesspool) to hold all political discussions.

thanks
