From last Friday’s action, some pictures, some linked commentary

The linked commentary isn't about the bus lack-of-service, it's to fellow local activist Loren Wirbel made a short documentary film just showing a FEW of the multi-gazillionaire "defense" plants around town. You know the ones, our Magnificently Superior Business Experts at City Hall made the command decision for us to give them Tax Exemptions that would make Reagan blush, to draw them to a Strategic Location where they were going to come anyway. So they get local services on the local dime far disproportionately to what they actually paid for. It's bad enough that We The People have to subsidize Corporate Welfare Cheats like Lockheed but they're also Corporate Warfare Daddy Warbucks types who make their money from other people DYING. Deathmongers getting a free ride from our Wise and Noble and Ever So Much Better that us City Hall. The rest of us paid our fare, but we don't get the ride. That's not fair. By the way, that last line isn't complaining, it's telling the Ayn Rand worshipers that they're complete Liars when they say stupid shit like they're actually a Free Market where everybody has a chance. Lying... Cowardly... PUKES. A swarm of Parasitic Slugs in search of a bag of salt. A LOT of canes and wheelchairs, and a few burnout refugees-from-the-70s Ahem.. Cyrus of course. Just some of our friends. Notice the preponderance of canes and wheelchairs. There's a reason for this, it's because the other people who depend on the buses were at their jobs waiting their turn to be injured then disposed of. Timing of the event has to be when buses are running, it's a Catch-22 of massive proportions. The bus service abruptly cuts off at shift change. If you'll notice, the Bus Service people had their Q&A session scheduled for the middle of the afternoon as well. Intentionally? Orders from Above? Eh. One of the people who uses the bus to go to and only occasionally FROM work, said "Hey, they didn't even actually pay attention to the badly disabled, how are they going to handle the Working Poor?" How indeed. Republicans and Ayn Rand "libertarians" tend to take the short view when it comes to Workers and our rights. If it isn't happening to them personally, immediately, they just don't see it happening. If they personally aren't staring down the barrel of the gun, they'll simply say "Gun? What gun? I don't see any gun... nothing to see here, citizens, keep moving, nothing to see.."

Doug Bruce on video mouthing off about “illiterate peasants”

When Rivera shot off his own foot saying something similar, at least he wasn't running for Mayor (can't, term limits) To be fair, the "Illiterate Peasants" he was referencing weren't the Bus Riding Public who incidentally are the Working Class who support him and the rest of the Parasite Class. They're seasonal labor Farm Workers who quite literally feed his fat piggy ass and those of his Parasite Class comrades. The ones who, like him, feel that the bus service and the people who ride the bus to WORK, mostly, are extraneous and needn't be considered. One attitude spills into the other and then back again. "5000 Illiterate Peasants", compared to your similar indictments of people riding the bus? When Mayor Rivera said something similar, the "illiterate peasants" with whom I was riding the bus and discussing this same issue (Before the Big Purge of bus service) were a retired lady, with really bad health problems that come from aging, and a SCHOOLTEACHER who is blind from birth. I personally can't drive because of my neurological problems, similarly, from birth. Mayor Lyin' el had said that only bums and winos ride the bus. You could tell right there that he wasn't running for re-election. Doug Bruce and his accomplices at "Citizens for Accountable Leadership" who aren't "accountable" enough to put their Leaders Name (Doug Bruce) on their corporate letterhead even as a member of the board, are petitioning for a "strong executive mayoral city government". And it's just a coincidence that Bruce, Former Prosecutor, is rumored to be wanting another run for Mayor. Of COURSE it's just a coincidence. Doug Bruce would never lie, unless of course he needs to lie or just wants to lie. Nor would any of his Accomplic errr I mean "Associates" yeah, that's the ticket, Associates. By the way, Doug, if somebody is reading this to you... I don't like cops in any form, especially the Prosecutor type. I feel strongly that as a Prosecutor you would by default have covered many a crime committed "in the line of duty" by your fellow pigs. Especially as you feel that certain Racist Urge to dismiss whole segments of the people who work to support your system as "Illiterate Peasants" the way you did the farm workers. And, Brucie-baby, when I was riding the bus that day, Illiterate Peasant schoolteacher was on her way to work, Illiterate Peasant Senior Citizen lady was on her way from one of the Senior Centers which you're in the process of closing, to her home. SHE was worried because your shadow-government was cutting Saturday bus service off at 5 PM on the route she rides from her home to Church on Saturday evenings. Correction, (damnation, only an ILLITERATE PEASANT could possibly make such an error... RODE the bus to her church services... because you and your Noble, Intellectually Superior Ilk managed to get Saturday bus services cut off completely.) The third Illiterate Peasant, moi meme sui, who speaks three languages and has a larger English vocabulary than YOU
