TRIMET MANAGEMENT GETTING PROACTIVE AT CATCHING TRANSIT THUGS

This is the second incident where publicity about riders who seem to think the transit system exists for their amusement, has lead to their arrest and public humiliation.
Trimet management should be congratulated on putting these thugs out in the public domain.
We need them to continue to follow this procedure when these sorts of incidents occur!

Arrested!

One down, one to go. What about the fare evader with the woman? Does he just get off scott-free or what?

It’s TriMet tax day, too. What are we paying for?

  Because TriMet has been allowed to write its own definition of new service, the blue line includes new debt payments for rail construction and bus replacements and rising benefit costs for LIFT drivers.

Offshoring American Jobs:An Ongoing Economic Catastrophe

This is what Americans were told some time ago when good manufacturing jobs were offshored (largely courtesy of the National Association of Manufacturers).
We were told that we were entering a new economy that had nothing to do with manufacturing. The offshoring was part of the "maturation of our economy." And so we were handed a promissory note that read as follows:
"Dear American: We don't like unions or high-paying union jobs, so we're sending manufacturing jobs offshore. We're not going to support the communities that this will disastrously impact when all those jobs are lost. We're going to do little or nothing to retrain the individuals who have lost those jobs due to offshoring. But don't worry. The stock market will do better, and trickle-down theory tells us that someday, somehow, good jobs, different jobs, will come back to America.
"Signed,
Mr. Nobody"

I have never lived in a time when so many false narratives competed for supremacy of the collective mind-space. Omnipresent as it is, reality seems to elude us, and certainly its supposed interlocutors - figures such as presidents, his highest appointed officials, their voluble, strutting opponents in the other party, the glamorpusses behind the Cable TV news desks, poor dim Bill Keller at The New York Times, and, of course, the necromancers of economics on campuses from Cambridge to Palo Alto.
