Citigroup Providing Free Bicycles — Don’t Buy it World!
This is from the “liberal” The Independent of London:
Hello, New Yorkers, if you’re there. In a few weeks you’ll welcome to your streets 10,000 bicycles that will make you, says your fellow New Yorker, the writer David Byrne, “rethink your city and rewrite the mental maps you use to decide what is… possible.”
Manhattan will become the latest city to adopt a bike hire scheme, deploying the same machines we use in London. Here’s some advice before you hop on: Get a cheap helmet; consider the effects of sweat before riding to social engagements; start saving – the scheme is more than five times the price of London’s – and never get run over (taxis may be your nemesis).

Citibike? As in Citigroup.
Citigroup was one of the five or six banks who crashed the global economy. They aren’t our friend. But they want to be.
This photo disgusts me. Come on world, let’s not fall for their cheap effort to woo us.
