All I get is grief for my good work

The "Drunk Cyclist" seems pretty mad at me when all TKC wants to do is keep KC's bikers safe by promoting legislation to completely ban them from streets and confine them to trails . . . And maybe separate drinking fountains. Anyway, if you like cranky white people insulting TKC (and who doesn't?) then a recent rant by the Drunk Cyclist is for you. By the way, whenever I drag you down to my level (or lower in this case considering that this guy's response is full of obscenities whereas my work to protect bikers is eloquent and awesome): I win.

Wow! That guy is pretty vulgar. However, I'm still pleasantly entertained by the girlish twist to his online TKC-hater rant. I think that guy is what I would call cyber-"tough". I guess I can understand his frustration if he's a bike enthusiast, but the cyber-hater-girly way he handled it really doesn't bode well for how easy it is to question the sexuality of dudes with shaved legs pedaling around the city wearing spandex. Tehe. :)

Critical mass deutch-baggs. Fixed gear hipsters. The more I hear about these "cyclists" the more I want to run them off the road.

I'd like to see those Critical Massers try and tie up KC traffic during rush hour. That kind of chicanery might work in laid-back hippy-dippy Portland and Seattle but here I would venture to guess that the carnage would be high. I relish the thought.

When I read your first post about KC area biking, I couldn't tell it was satire or if you actually believed what you wrote. After reading the rest of your posts on the subject, I have concluded that you truly are a fucking cock.

In the end he'll end up liking you.

Ah yes, this is fun.

I did get a rather nice email from our Dear Tony. We're going to exchange Christmas cards this year. I’ll pop in next time I visit family in Kansas City.

What really gets under my skin is people (tony, tomi bon and the anonymous) write things about hitting cyclists, running the off the road, and the like. Two people died and you think it’s funny.

I was hit and run by a drunk driver last year in broad daylight. He broke my back and got five years in jail. This is not a joke. This is my life.

I’m still not the man I used to be. A year later. It hurts every day. My daughter damn near grew up without a father.

And you think that’s funny?

By "freelance" writer do you mean "unemployed"? And I bet you can never guess why.

Roads are designed for cars. Keep your Huffy on the sidewalk or bike trail if you need to burn some calories. These cyclists act like they are some kind of persecuted underclass when in fact they are idiots for being out there. We would ticket someone who consistently drove 20 mph under the speed limit and tied up traffic but somehow bikes are okay?

Whenever someone in an online discussion states "Any time you do (X) I win" it clearly shows the sort of needs and fulfillment they cannot get in the real world.
Blog on Tony. We're all rooting for you and hoping the inner pain is subsided by this therapy you've found.

bikescag said...

Hey Lewis "Douchebag" Diuguid

Check your state laws regarding cyclists and the classification of bicycles- most likely they are considered "vehicles" and such are NOT allowed on the sidewalk

Furthermore, if we do ride on the sidewalk and then hit a pedestrian, then you would probably be leaving a comment that we don't belong on the sidewalk and should be on the shoulder of the road

Go drive your gas sucking SUV and I hope you get cancer from sucking on all the carbon monoxide in the fumes...then you'll realize the long slow agonizing march through the rest of your life toward death that many of these maimed cyclists have to deal with

Two people are DEAD and you could give a rats ass

James Asher said...

Do people on this site realize that some people bike to work? I bike casually, too, but for the most part I bike just to and from work. I live in Lenexa and there are no 'trails' to my work. Nor, for about half of the trip are there any sidewalks. I am forced to ride in the street. I don't mind, I stick to the right side and haven't really had any problems. I guess my point is that if Tony's ridiculous world were to come true, the world where bikers were banned from the road, then people like me couldn't get to their job.

Aesop Rock said...

Hey bikescag, just because they are registered as vehicles doesn't mean that they are a smart mode of transportation on narrow streets with two ton trucks who are going above the speed limit. Ideally every street in KC would have a nice wide bike lane but until it happens cyclists are just stupid for getting out there.

Tyrone N. Tucker said...

Do you cyclists even care that you tie up traffic every time you decide to get out there on your neat little bikey? We have to go around you and then you move up on past us again at stoplights so we have to weave around you again. You are all just bastard people with your hip little fixed gears and fancy messenger bags. Little european cycling hat wearing faggots.

Bobbo said...

It is time for all to get their heads on straight...the argument is old and going no where.

Injury and death of cyclists is not acceptable. I am all for banning cyclists as soon as cycling lanes, separate from roads, are established on every road where they are banned. Gas prices are based on supply and demand. Lower the demand and the price will drop. The reduced cost of gas will more than pay for the construction and maintenance of the cycling lanes.

KC could add a cycling lane tax to each gallon of gas to get the ball rolling.

David MacAlaster said...

The final word on this argument...
Cyclists will continue to be killed as long as they continue to insist on biking on roads that are not designed for them.
Next topic please.

Tony no seas mamon! I'm chicano and roll with these "rich, white, folks" and you know what there chevere. Why do you have to create such a negative atomosphere? If all you wanna do is roll is your escalade booming your 12's then do so. Eat your chicharones and drink your tecate, but don't be trying to start a pleito.

Anyone that "celebrates" "laughs at" or "encourages" hitting and or killing cyclists is just sick. I really wish you people would grow up. Two lives were lost, families are grieving. This could also happen to anyone who walks along a road with inadequate sidewalks, as we all have done.

Opus the Poet said...

I'm 6 years out from a deliberate attempt to kill me on a 3 lane road with 2 vehicles on it: mine and the lower life form that tried to kill me because I dared ride my bicycle home from work on the same road he thought belonged exclusively to him. I almost lost my left leg in the exchange, he was never caught and lost nothing.

I don't know what the laws are in Kansas or Missouri but in TX advocating running bicyclists off the road, hitting them with baseball bats etc. is comitting a state jail felony, called inciting a criminal act, maximum sentence of 1 year. Unfortunately the law is seldom enforced when it involves cyclists, more's the pity.

Ohhh you cyclists are such a persecuted minority, such urban road warriors.
Power to the people Che Guevara!!!!!
Everybody don their messenger bags and Marxist hats for it's time for a protest ride!!!
Roads are designed for cars and until there are bike lanes everywhere my first instinct when one of you goes down will be that you shouldn't have been out there to begin with.

Grouch and Eligh said...

Hey Anus the Poet,
no one is advocating hitting you with bats we're talking about those that are casualties of inadvertant accidents (ie not accustomed to looking for tiny cyclists weaving in and out of traffic)
I know I know there are no "accidents" where cyclists are concerned, only malicious grannies with the blood of cyclists on their lips. I forgot for a second that you are more valuable than us drivers as you are carbon neutral. Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!

bikesgonewild said...

...tony, kansas city.

you & about 90% of your 'fans' need some serious fucking perspective.

& should my 'cuss' word prove to be more of a point than your 'satire' which revels in people dying, i guess i'm vindicated.

thanks for your valuable time

I find it funny that cars claim they have the right to the road. In the 1920's, when pavement was widely laid down in American cities, it was because of *cyclists* needing the smoother surface, not cars.

If we were to go back to dirt roads, cars would have to travel so slowly they couldn't possibly have an excuse to hit us bikers.

You folks are so hateful, ignorant, and death-obsessed; I'm honestly sick. I suppose you are all the pro-life Bush-lovers too, since, obviously, wishing death upon bikers is clearly in line with your values.

Johnny Wad said...

hey anon 05:55...congrats on the most hackneyed and idiotic arguent in favor of roads being made for cyclists ever, and tying in the predictable anti-Bush tag was superb as well. so you mean those lanes out there that are roughly the size of cars and trucks are actually made for bike travel. well, whooooo--eeeeeee!!!! that's a good'un!!!!!!!!!

Mod Podge said...

boy that anon 0555 dude is just PLUMB DUMB. i hate bush but i despise him even more.

Remember bikers: No matter how tough you talk on the internet you own multiple pairs of spandex shorts and ride something that is for ten year olds and chinese garment workers.

Anonymous said...

I love these tough guys that are like "don't bring it in KC". KC is a piece of shit and F'N Missouri is the biggest shit hole in the US of A. And all you internet tough guys are so laughable. So white-boy gansta in the freaking midwest. Reminds me of the guy in SUV that tried to squeeze me into some parked cars. Stopped at the light and got out of his car acting tough in front of his wife and kid. Long story short he was crying a soft whimper at the end of his ass kicking. I'm pretty sure he wound up losing an eye too. Didn't stick around. So yeah, next time you want to bring some to local riders you better lock the doors because there's a few of us nut jobs who will call you on your bullshit. I'll make you show me your fat man tits when I have my CCW aimed at your ass.

Mod Podge said...

I think we've just met the spandexed Charles Bronson. You've just written the most wiggerish post on this blog so far, you coastal hipster jackass you. Stay the hell out of KC, we don't go for you primped nancy-boy bikers here. Stick to one of your latte towns you jackball.

Tyrone N. Tucker said...

hey anon 09:11, is that your CCW that i see bulging through your plum-smugglers or are you just getting excited coz it's all downhill now to your boyfriend's house? oh, that's got to sting.

mainstream said...

lmfao "the spandexed Charles Bronson".

This is like watching a slapfight at Bar Natasha.

Tony, you are an idiot. You make Kansas City sound like a haven for bicycle-bashing. You make bicyclists sound like an elitist cult of fanatics. These are the pictures you paint when your vocabulary (and mindset) is limited. If all you want to do is draw attention to how glaringly simple your mind is, then you have succeeded. Until you can write about something with truth and insight, you should hang it up. Or hang yourself, seeing as though you don't seem to value human life much.

Anonymous said...

Tony gives bicyclists just enough rope to hang themselves, again.

Love it.

stupid bitch said...

my friend was hit while riding her bicycle home from work last week; by a drunk driver. luckily, she only received some road rash and the drunk driver actually stopped. and then went to jail.

begin sarcastic snarkiness...

clearly it's my friends fault. had she not been riding a bicycle, that drunk driver would have hit someone else; perhaps a car. then it wouldn't have been a big deal right? blame the bicyclists!

/sarcastic snarkiness

and tony, no amount of ass kissing on my blog will make me forget how much of a dickhead you can be. you need to learn to give props to people of ALL colors if they are talented at what they do.

Zodiac Cyclist Killer said...

It's not sarcastic snarkiness to point out the fact that slow moving hard to see cyclists have NO business trying to blend in with city traffic. We will continue to kill you off at a rate of one per day until out demands are met. Just kidding about that last statement.

bikesgonewild said...

THIS SITE IS PROOF THAT BOTH tony & kansas city ARE DEVOID OF INTELLIGENT LIFE.

fry said...

this whole string of 'comments' is unreal. you fucking kc douchenozzles are hillarious. i mean really, you're entertainment at best. we can sit around and laugh our asses off while your rant and bitch and sound like such whiney little pussies. the only thing that sucks is that we're all going to be paying for rehab, medicare, foodstamps, etc to keep your fuckers alive pretty soon. your 37 year old ass is probably sitting in your mom's trailer on her dial up internet because you're fucking busted up nova won't start so to get you to the 7-11 for a can of chew. you guys rock. now have another miller high life and put another coat of primer on the car!

www.tonyskansascity.com/2007/06/beat-bicyclist-with-baseball-bat.html
I believe just the title of this particular blog from Tony should put Grouch to the lie, but just to make sure go ahead and follow the link.

And the last refuge of an idiot when losing an argument is ad homenium, that is if you can't refute the facts attack the person bearing those facts to the argument.

I think there is actually precedent to charge Tony (or whatever his real name is) with a terrorist act against bicyclists. Look up the definition of a terrorist in federal law.

The US has a great network of bike paths all over the country, pity we can't get the cars off them.

Zodiac Cyclist Killer said...

I'll also be killing anyone who refers to their fixed gear as a "fixie." It's just one of those things.

big hairy legged, jeans wearing cyclist said...

I love how car drivers bitch and moan about bikes clogging up traffic. I get held up every day by cars. Average inner city speeds for cars are well below that of bikes, and we don't have to walk for miles from where we parked to where we work. I also love how you fat gas guzzlers call any one who critises you 'haters' but are willing to advocate murder just so you can use the slowest, most expensive, most heavily tax-payer subsidized form of transport you can. And check your history, dirt roads were made for pedesestarians, then paved foir horse riders, sealed foir bicycles and then aggressively taken over by cars.

Roddy Bottom said...

Hey Hairy Jeans,
So all those roads and bridges out there were designed for bikes? Funny I don't remember seeing any of those photos in the archives of this garment district shangiri-la you speak of. Methinks just another Critical Mass D-Bag.

Anonymous said...

Sure cyclist can be self righteous to a fault. But it really sucks to have your life threatened everyday no matter how safe you try to be. And to have people get pissed because they have to slow down before they speed up to the next stop sign, then yell or make threatening moves at you with a 1 ton block of metal might put you on edge too. I like cars, and I have one, but I spend most of my time in the city on a bike. There really is room for everyone.
If everyone, bikers included, were a little less self-righteous we could all relax.
But Fuck all you who make jokes about killing people with cars. And if you decide to get out of your car to show me "what", I'll consider it self-defense when I rearrange your teeth.
