Where’s the Respect for Alternative Transportation for the Puget Sound?



Still visiting the Pacific Northwest today and I am decidedly aghast at the future plans for “Bus plan calls for tax” as the headline in the Sunday “The News Tribune” newspaper. If you have never commuted to and from work in the Seattle area by way of your own vehicle, you have not experienced the great parking lot of morning and evening Washington highways. Been there, done that just over 7 years ago. I learned quickly that the Sounder and Bus System was the way to go. Mornings I could prep and detail my strategy for the day and plan and tweak plans for the week on public transportation. In the evenings, I could unwind before arriving home, much to the appreciation of my husband and children.

In the last seven years, it does not appear to have lightened any in the traffic flow and the Sounder has increased ridership, scheduled trips and extension of routes. But what about the Bus System? Locals you best get involved or you may lose your ride, pay through the nose, or begin your parking lot ride all over again. Grab your Java and get involved here:

COMMISSIONERS’ MEETING

What: Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners meeting.

When: 4 p.m. Monday.

Where: Rainier Room, Pierce Transit Training Center, 3720 96th St. S.W., Lakewood.

Open to the public? Yes.

On the agenda: Consideration of plans for service changes, including one that would dramatically curtail routes and a second that would basically preserve service. Board members may vote to put a sales tax increase from 0.6 percent to 0.9 percent on the Feb. 8 ballot to pay for the expanded-service option.

Is Obama Breaking His Oath of Office… Again? Time for an Investigation on Arizona’s Behalf

Senator Kyl Says: Border Will Not Secured Unless In Conjunction With Amnesty

1MillionSupportAz — June 20, 2010 — On June 18, 2010, Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Tempe Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.'” [Audible gasps were heard throughout the audience.] Sen. Kyl continued, “In other words, they’re holding it hostage. They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with ‘comprehensive immigration reform.'”

Is there any doubt that treason is afoot? For reference a previous entry:

The Slipshot President aka The Bogus POTUS

In just one weekend we have the worst, liberal, progressive, socialist, left leaning, divisive, antagonistic, free spending, unpatriotic, radical,  slipshot President in history! Finally at the bottom of the class and so classless:

He fails to attend the wreath laying at Arlington via Arlington’s Wreath Ceremony: No Obama

He weenies out on Abraham Lincoln Cemetery via Storm cancels Obama’s Memorial Day speech

He gets his TV air time, though, with a captive audience of dozens at Andrews AFB, another blah, blah, blah moment. This is the same military he ignores and denigrates at every opportunity.

He loses opportunity with Netanyahu leaves Obama waiting for next meeting as Netanyahu has to leave for Israel to deal with Obama’s personal pals, Figures. Obama’s Terrorist Pal Bill Ayers & Top Bundler Jodie Evans Are Top Activists With Gaza Flotilla Group

He still hasn’t come to grips with the reality of the oil spill/leak/deluge and that it didn’t matter how or why it happened, but that it needed to be corrected immediately. He’s vacationed and golfed while the Gulf has oozed.

Nero and Rome Part II or Zero and no Dome!
