ANOTHER OPERATOR TAKES A STAND AGAINST THE TYRANT MCFARLANE

RE: Unpaid Wages and Insurance Reimbursement
Dear Mr. Mcfarlane:
I have been working for your company as bus operator since March 5, 2007. As, you know you have been ordered on more than one occasion by the Employment relations Board to make me whole for any losses incurred due to your unlawful conduct, including reimbursement for salary increases I did not receive and contributions toward insurance premium costs I paid. According to my calculations, I should have been paid a total of $3,900.00 in wages and insurance premiums.
I am willing to resolve this matter informally through immediate payment of $3,900.00. If I do not receive these wages and insurance premiums within two weeks of the date of this letter, I will file a claim with the Oregon Labor Commissioner or in state court seeking all the damages allowed by law.
I am also requesting that you cease and desist from communicating to me in regards to or attempting to implement any action to collect money you think I owe for this highly illegal retroactive health care policy. I was given no information at the time I signed up for my current insurance policy stating that I could at some point be held responsible for paying money back. If I had been given such information it clearly would have influenced my choice. This change you made to our insurance has been ruled illegal because it was done in retaliation in case you forgot.
I am also aware of my rights that protect me from retaliation for requesting my unpaid wages. If your company takes any action against me, including any form of discipline or discharge, for asserting my right to be paid my wages I will have the right to file another claim with the Labor Commissioner or in court based on unlawful retaliation.
If you have any questions about the contents of this letter, I can be contacted at home at 503-XXX-XXXX

DAN CHRISTENSEN'S COMMENT ABOUT TRIMET NOT PROVIDING WATER ANYLONGER

 This is a Facebook post where I usually keep the names out of the post, but Dan is an exception to that rule:

TRIMET'S ELITES PLAYBOOK

  The goal was malicious, but socially radical; instead of expending the impossible energy needed to dictate the very form and existence of the truth, they would allow it to drift, obscured in a fog of contrived data. They would wrap the truth in a Gordian Knot of misdirection and fabrication so elaborate that they felt certain the majority of people would surrender, giving up long before they ever finished unraveling the deceit. The goal was not to destroy the truth, but to hide it in plain sight.

In modern times, and with carefully engineered methods, this goal has for the most part been accomplished. However, these methods also have inherent weaknesses. Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly.

PORTLAND MERCURIES WINNER

In its tales of Trimet tales of True terror:
NO TICKET!
It's January 31, and I want to go to the zoo. The bus pulls up to the stop and I flash the February monthly pass I just bought. The bus driver explains to me that it's January. I go home and get 40 cents and return to the bus stop. The bus is 20 minutes late.
I take an empty seat in the back. Two stops later, a filthy, boisterous man boards. He chooses the seat next to me. He smells like cigarettes, booze, and urine. He's in the mood for conversation. He begins to tell me a story about his old landlord, the government, maybe the CIA. It's not very cohesive. Spittle is raining down on me, and the other people on the bus think that we are friends. The MAX station is a few stops away so I bid my new acquaintance adieu and get on the train.
The MAX stops on the middle of the Steel Bridge and I realize I need to take a shit. Badly. Fifteen minutes, and nothing. People are becoming restless. My bowels are becoming restless. I am a grown man. I believe I can hold it until the zoo. Another 20 minutes pass and I am not so sure.
I begin to pray. The train starts moving, thank god. I clench until the Washington Park station. As I'm about to disembark, a plainclothes TriMet officer stops me and asks for my ticket. I show him my February pass. "It's January," he explains as he writes me a ticket. There are no functioning bathrooms in sight.
I get to the zoo and realize I left my debit card at home. I have no money on me. Defeated and humiliated, I walk to Washington Park and take a shame shit in the bushes. On the ride home I smell like poop and no one sits by me.
