Obama: Pass this bill. Reid: Ummm, no?


Obama is determined that Congress pass Stimulus Jr.

Harry Reid is busy with more pressing matters. Like bike paths.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Republicans won’t support President Barack Obama’s jobs plan, but he still wants them to vote on the sweeping $450 billion economic recovery effort.

“We are going to have the Republicans belly up to the bar to turn down this plan,” Reid said during a virtual town hall meeting with supporters Wednesday.

Reid said he won’t immediately take up Obama’s plan because the Senate must tackle other issues first. He didn’t specify which bills would receive priority over Obama’s economic solution.

The Democrats are miserable failures.

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay. My daddy was a poor, hardworking Saginaw fisherman. Too many times he came home with too little pay.

Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.

The perennial issue of bike paths raises its head again. It seems that no matter how many rail lines are shut down and replaced with bike paths and hiking trails there are still not enough bike paths for all the bicycles that want to hurtle down them, crashing into bystanders and shrubbery. Clearly, the jam-packed bike paths that cross every piece of parkland are not sufficient, because they are empty most of the time. Since they are empty, it’s clear we haven’t yet reached a critical mass of them enough to encourage people to actually use them.

Pretty soon, Reid and Obama are going to have to put 100,000 new bike path police to work keeping the bike paths safe. And cameras. In our area, thisis no joke, there are little yellow lines painted down the center of bike paths; where a path goes under an underpass and around the corner, there are little miniature warning signs; where a path converges with another, there are little miniature ‘yield’ signs. At certain times of the day, you can go down by the river and watch for 15-20 minutes and you might see a bike rider.
