Trimet fares, false flag attacks

13:01 minutes (11.91 MB)

Press**Watch: Trimet to double fares: take action!

Categories:
TriMet, the local bus service, proposes to effectively double fares for seniors-- who will have to purchase a separate fare for return trips.  Everyone, under their proposal, will have to buy a one-way ticket for $2.50-- if you don't qualify for the reduced "honored citizen" fare-- or buy a $5 day pass.  
 
You may comment until March 2 on the website, which forces you to click through several pages of their justifications before you can get to the feedback form.  Here is the link without the propaganda:  http://trimet.org/mailforms/budgetproposal
 
I suggest TriMet apply via our Congressmen and Senators for federal funds.

Then at 11:30am Tara Corbin from Cycle Oregon will be joining us to talk about the upcoming Oregon Active Transportation Summit (April 16-17) and the state outlook for cycling and active transportation.

It's the mating call of the Naderites: there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans. They're both corporate parties; the only difference lies in how far right-of-center they lie.

Do we really have a choice? Abe sizes up the 2012 presidential election.

It's the mating call of the Naderites: there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans. They're both corporate parties; the only difference lies in how far right-of-center they lie.

But there is a difference. It's not as stark as most progressives might like, but it's there, and it makes itself felt over time. That's why, as frustrated and as impatient as we might be, we've got to pay attention. With Joe away, Abe looks at the quadrennial liberal presidential dilemma.
