Industry Veteran Andrew Bernstein Critically Injured in Boulder Hit and Run - Updated 7/31
Unfortunately this kind of thing happens far too often. So much so that I won't ride on the road anymore. At the end of the day it doesn't matter if I had the right of way if I'm laid up in the hospital. I hope they find the guilty party and I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

American Tariffs on Chinese-Made Goods Threaten to Increase Prices for the US Bike Industry
@dicky1080: uh, yeah. I'm good where I'm at. There was a study that said people from Denmark do better in the US than they do in Denmark.

@bulletbassman: (skipping the phone so shorter answers) I don't benefit from society, I am a benefit to society by my contributions to it. My boss deserves more money because he put up his own money and time to start this business. Few people realize how difficult that is. Most also fail to see huge impact of "small business" on our economy. Most people are not employed by Hugegreedy corporation, most are enployees of small business. Charitable giving is deductible but not as direct credit. I could get greater result using my own money in a charitable way than the government could, although most people probably wouldn't do that. I'm not arguing we pay no tax. I'm arguing everyone pays a more similar % The constitution lays out the function of government. Social services are not included while national security is. With that said we do spend too much.

@mitochris: The more efficient you CAN be. Doesn't work that way. Why wouldn't Communist and Socialist countries be leaders in innovation and human prosperity? Apple is a $1T company because they have great products that people are willing to pay for. They make their phones and components all over the world in highly specialized facilities. It's not as if dirty Chinese workers are being funneled into the ground to mine Iphones. I work in a small specialized machine shop. I am on par to produce about $400K in final goods by myself this year. The equipment I make them on is expensive and way paid for my boss, the owner. Am I being taken advantage of because I don't take the money home with me? I am free to negotiate my own terms, something I couldn't do if this was a union shop. I am paid well because my skills and work ethic speak for itself. I also choose the work 60 hours a week so I can make extra money to do with it what I want. Am I "the rich" who should be paying for the needs of others?

@mitochris: @mitochris: Is it more selfish to keep what you earn or take from someone who has? No, Governments are not efficient when compared to Private sector business. Private sector pays for itself while turning a profit. Government raises taxes and goes deeper into debt. I see Sweden has 9.9 million people. The US has 325 Million. It's understandable that our views of government would differ.

@rrolly: I agree with your observation that things have become polarized. I weighed the options and found Trump to be the most aligned with, not just my personal preferences, but the constitution of the United States. I cared about the nominations to the courts above and beyond. I didn't like the fact that my Government, who works for me, was able to tell me I am required to buy health insurance. The end result is obviously not a bad thing but the end doesn't justify the means when it comes to an attack on freedom. I wouldn't allow him to sit at my kitchen table or be alone with my wife or kids, but I would vote for him again if there is nobody better.

@mitochris: I care for my neighbors with my own resources the way I see fit. I always have and I always will. I don't want the government to take from me to help them the way the government sees fit. I certainly don't want my government to steamroll my liberty to do so. Government is not equipped or not interested in being efficient or effective when it comes to anything other than a military. Our American founding fathers understood this. If people are happy to live under socialism I'm happy for them. I'm not willing too and I'm not willing to let America hand over liberty under the guise of "sharing the burden and taking care of one another".

Check yourself. You don't speak for me. I'll vote for him again especially since the left swings closer to full blown socialist. I don't agree with quite a bit of the things he's done but he's better than his opposition.
