"The automobile is probably the single most environmentally destructive thing on this planet, particularly if you factor in the oil industry and all the land paved over for roads. Consider also that we're sending billions of dollars every year…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Slow Roll Chicago
"This is beautiful. I've never been very enamored with the tactics used by Critical Mass, they tend to be counter productive. I hope they do this sort of thing in my 'hood. I will follow up. It would sure be nice to read the papers after…"

"Well you called my bluff. My BMW isn't really a UDM. It's got over 250 K miles on it, is almost as old as I am, and seats 1.2 people, and that's stretching it:"

"Consideration? That's a 5 syllable word. Way too complicated for most people to grasp. Similar to responsibility, an even tougher 6 syllable word. But freedom? Well, that's a 2 syllable word. Everyone understands the meaning of that word.…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Waymond Smith's discussion What would you have done?
"Agreed, doing nothing is not the best solution. That woman is a danger to the public and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Throwing bottles at people is a very serious offense and whether the woman was mentally or not is really irrelevant."

"Heh, I rode by it this morning on the way to work. This is the third time I've seen a car parked? along the bike path in that vicinity. I can't wait until the flyover is completed. But then I guess drivers will find some other more novel…"
