Because we have no idea what the guy on the bike owns that may not be accurate but I have to admit that in my area many (not all) are self absorbed wads that like to dress up and play cyclist on the weekends with no regaurd for the law.
calling them "bikers" insults real bikers.
ETEXGODSCOUNTRY, bikes do have a right to use the road, just as much as cars do. The cyclist was in a bike lane when the van driver cut in front of him and hit his brakes.
Maybe you and the van driver should go take a driver's ed class together because neither of you understand the law.
"But, but, I drive a car so I own the road and am entitled to bully people in my way!" Tell it to the judge.
They ARE AL SO THE Ones THAT VOTES TO RAISE TAXS ON gas. On power TRY TO TELL YOU WHAT TEMP YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HOME AT.and WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA.
I own a bike and I do pay road taxes.
Ah, I like the cut if your jib!
I have long said that bicycles should have to pay a small registration fee and carry a small amount of insurance if used on a public roadway. I would exempt race bikes during a race and bicycles for children under age 16.
The cost of a bicycle lane is roughly 1/3-1/2 that of a regular traffic lane with ZERO return. Bike lanes restrict traffic (due turns, parking and lane restrictions), often result in narrow driving lanes and few commuters on bicycles.
I was pulling away from a stop sign in North Mesa, rolling up a hill, pulling a heavy trailer with a cummins powered truck. There was a large contingent of bicyclists on my right. They lost their mind because of the smoke. Sorry guys, it was smog legal, unmodified, just pulling 12,000 lbs and it smokes under heavy load and low rpm. Oh well, such is life.
A biker rides a motorcycle.
No road tax? I ride a bicycle AND pay road tax for 3 vehicles and 2 trailers. Every time I ride the bike I'm causing less wear and tear on the road and STILL paying tax on all the other vehicles.
Other than that, the guy was in a designated BIKE LANE. Regardless of how it got paid for..... it's there

No matter if it was Sam Houston’s or not. It came from an era when our great state was a nation.
That should be enough!
Indeed. People often get caught up in the literal act, when they really should be peeling back a layer or two and looking at the intent of the act instead, and what it symbolizes. They could use a USB drive with a copy of the Bible on it as long as the intent and symbolism is the same.
Maybe some of these idiots should spend less time worrying about who owned the Bible, and more time reading it...
Easy for this kind of thing to happen.
Long ago, "This Bible came from the Sam Houston era of Texas..."
Then, "This Bible might even have belonged to Sam Houston.."
Then, "This Bible is rumored to have belonged to Sam Houston.."
Then, "This is Sam Houston's own bible... "
Game of Telephone across several generations...
The mystery might never have occurred if only Charmin had been invented much earlier.
I suppose libs will want to exchange it for the Jefferson Quaran.
Technically, Texas was a country, not really a nation. I think it could be called a nation-state in some historians' eyes (but only in retrospect). The most specific nomenclature would be to call it the official name, the Republic of Texas.
I will say that the use of the term "nation" is in my opinion conflated with the term "country," HOWEVER the usage is so common that this semantic nuance is lost in most modern communication. There used to be a difference (the words were not synonyms) and the Republic of Texas was not a nation like the European nations were... It was a country with a political boundary inhabited by people of numerous national origins.
The development of the United States from vast colonial territories effectively caused this semantic change, and the Republic of Texas was one of the means by the two words became synonymous. But it still grates me to hear of the "nation" of Texas.
Exactly. Whether it was Sam's personal Bible or not it obviously dates from the early days, if not the Republic (depends on what that last digit is after 184_) then certainly the very early statehood days. There are also a lot of things in Washington and around the world that are more anecdotal than provable with facts.
Be careful discussing bibles and tales based on fables...that would upset quite a few.
The U.S. was never great it was 'Created' by Occultists & dedicated to 'Pagan gods', it is completely phoney, very clever 'Deception', by the dragon/devil, they /Luciferians create the History writ the Books, produce the movies, not to hard to hard to write the History when you are planning it decades in advance, people have been duped.
A nation once again, eh? In order to rebel against Obamanation and to establish the 2nd Republic of Texas, it will require a lot of blood, fortunes, and sacred honor to do so…..along with a couple of billion bullets.
