Reasonable discourse

You see what drivers do when Henry Ford from Bay Ridge shames them to give up their cars in the city.

Well we know it wasn’t Bob from Gerritsen Beach who stole the bike. He’s too fat to even ride a bike.

Awesome. One less clueless hipster running red lights and plowing over old people trying to cross the street on their bike.

I really wish I learned how to ride a bike, kissed a girl, went to college, moved out of my parents basement. Sigh.

Come on Henry Ford, trolling on the Internet for so many years is that the best you could do?

Check out the out of touch fossil bragging about never moving out of his parent's apartment and still using the word "hipster". LOL, I bet he still wears his flip phone on his belt.

Living with parents is a good thing. Saves money. No need to pay more to a slumlord. Keeps the pressure on rent prices down. Isn't there an Assemblyperson in Queens who took over their parents house? Didn't Former Rep. Solarz use his mothers address to be in the district?

The word “nab” is racist and anachronistic
