OPAL has been right about Trimet all along

I've been watching OPAL pretty much since their inception. And they have been right on about their observations from the start. While OPAL has gotten some media coverage the mainstream media pretty much ignores them unless they can use them in a story that the media themselves are working on.

One of the biggest triumphs of OPAL has been the calling out of Trimet on their phony budget projections. Two years ago they said that the Trimet service cuts were not necessary and today we are seeing the full vindication of OPAL's projections. Trimet had pleaded poverty when there was no justification for it. They did that at the same time they hid raises for themselves.

Congratulations OPAL members for getting it right, too bad the mainstream media completely ignored this incredibly accurate analysis.
