Conspiracies are everywhere.

Denver has just introduced a bike sharing program. Funded purely by private corporations including the largest sum from Kaiser Permanente, a non-profit hospital chain, the program makes 400 bikes available at 40 stations for people to use. Membership fees keep the program cost effective and sustainable. Sounds good, doesn't it.

Not to GOP and Tea Party favored candidate for governor, Dan Maes. According to him, the program is part of a vast conspiracy.

It's "converting Denver into a United Nations community."

"This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed," Maes told about 50 supporters who showed up at a campaign rally last week in Centennial.

Maes said in a later interview that he once thought the mayor's efforts to promote cycling and other environmental initiatives were harmless and well-meaning. Now he realizes "that's exactly the attitude they want you to have."

"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said.

First they give us bikes to use and before you know it, they'll be herding us all into camps and enslaving us and then they'll impose Sharia Law. It's so damn obvious, I'm surprised no-one figured this out sooner.
