If only we could print this ourselves!

Another guy pops into town and has the answer for our transit.

The Observer being the Observer gives hims some time and space in a paper which they claim they do not have enough space for anything conservatives are interested in reading.

But read this mess and see what you think: Observer Rail Cheerleader Story

Don’t Buy anything in Mecklenburg County

Monday, November 16th, 2009
Hey where is that tax money?

Hey where is that tax money?

Those of us who know we can not afford this rail scheme welcome the new person who came from another system which is in sorry shape and hemorrhaging tax money even faster than we are as they have built and built and built with no concern about the costs.

So to get things started off right we are asking everyone in Mecklenburg County to put off any purchases you need and go to another surrounding county to buy.  The taxes are lower and not one penny of your money will be going to the half cent sales tax which supports this waste of money called Charlotte Transit System.

Can you imagine the jolly Christmas season when the retailers contact the Charlotte Chamber and demand they stop supporting the rail scheme so they can get our business back.  Can you imagine the fact they will have to actually stop hiding money in our general budget from projects not done all over our city and dumping them into the rail projects?

So Don’t buy anything in Mecklenburg County.

Arisen from the grave and still so far from Halloween!

The Street Car is BAAAAAAAAAK and even more scary than ever before.

With an infusion of a mere 4.5 million the City Council is moving ahead so they can keep the promise they made to the Black Political Caucus so they would help keep the Transit Tax.  They voted for the mere 4.5 to help design the streetcars.  Why not just buy a design that is already being made and save some money.  When I go to buy a car I do not want to have a new one designed for me.  I know that just adds to the cost.

So when they tear up the streets and keep traffic snarled for a couple of years and then wonder why businesses have closed and people are angry then they might wonder if buses could have been better and less intrusive of course a LOOOOOOOT cheaper.

Ta Ta Trolley… Sorry So long Street Cars.

And you were promised!!!!  Remember Both Parties Promised!

And you were promised!!!! Remember Both Parties Promised!

The Mayor vetoed the funding for the Central Ave., Beatties Ford Road Street Cars.

Even after the promises made to the Black Political Caucus.

He did this to help the few remaining elected officials so they would not have to take the ire of citizens as he is leaving this term.

Oh and I am sorry I said good bye trolley.  That is a rich persons plaything and will be treated like a golden cow along with the Light Rail.  Meaning they will be here forever even though they take funding from the buses which is needed as they cut service and the like.

Hey Black Political Caucus we at Charlotte Light Rail offers you a free website to express your ideas on CATS.  Just call me Larry 704.573.3363.
