Cue the misguided "my gas tax and car registration dollars shouldn't go towards these dumbass bike projects" arguments anyway...

Ok!

Infrastructure projects put more people to work because they cost much more. More money = more jobs.

More bike lanes equals less car lanes.
Less car lanes equals higher congestion.
Higher congestion equals less efficiency.
Less efficiency equals higher cost to produce goods.
Higher cost to produce goods equals a price of consumer goods inflation.
A price of consumer goods inflation equals lower savings.
Lower savings equals a reduction in wealth.

Looks like bikes are the most efficient way to take us to the poor house.

Thanks for the irrelevant, patently false and unwarranted info, Andy!

Boy, do I wish I were there with you in an American economy that still manufactures goods! Where'd you find that, anyhow?

Hardly a long term fix for the unemployment problem. Either way, once the project is completed, the jobs go bye bye. My sense is that maintenance is done by existing staff, rather than new hires.

NEXT!

And yet our bankrupt Federal government still has to cover most of the expense of a bridge over noisy I-5 to Portland's richest neighborhood.
