Deconstructing the May Trimet board meeting-part 3K
|Kelsey talks about changing Trimet culture-Lehto talks about future goals-Mcfarlane talks about bills in the legislature- Sapporta doesn't say much of anything|
Mcfarlane lied about the stabber arrest
|"I am grateful for our partners at Transit police for their rapid response and arrest of the suspect"|
Mcfarlane is constantly pumping up the police state presence in our lives.
Its also interesting that after all this hub-bub over this Police bunker that Trimet is building and the board of directors bragging about the system being so safe because of the
extra police there were 2 separate stabbings on the system in a week.

Portland activists speak to the Trimet board of directors
Alas, it was all for nothing, of course. I understand how government works. All the elections, public hearings, surveys, etc are nothing but a fraud. Government is controlled by an elite group of people and the citizens have no input whatsoever into the final policy.
Trimet is government, and it functions like government. It's controlled by the elites. They care not what citizens think

OPAL gets a nice turnout for today's Trimet board meeting
Of course it didn't impact the board of sock puppets.
They dutifully did their sock puppet thing and passed all the resolutions that Mcfarlane wanted.
We know that the citizens have no influence in the affairs of government.

Trimet continues its practice of stealing employees time
In our class action lawsuit we sued Trimet for not paying wages for time that we spent getting to road reliefs and not time slipping at end of shift among other things.
Trimet transportation distinct has developed this very bad habit of stealing operators time in multiple ways. The latest theft of time is the new HOP pass.
Trimet required all operators to get new pictures on the operators time.
Now Trimet is requiring operators to pick up the new passes on their own time rather than putting them in the company Mail.
This sort of behavior is unconscionable and should not go unchallenged. The Trimet executive class all received races of at least 3%. Trimet union employees got zero. And now they want active employees to spend their own time Dealing with this new HOP pass. Employees are required to have new passes by July 1st or they will be locked out of the garages as the old passes will be deactivated.

Trimet bus operators being treated like pack animals
Oregons DEMOCRATIC governor spreads fake news about selling Trimet
This is so obviously ridiculous on its face that I'm surprised it got printed, well actually I'm not surprised at all.
The media, the government, all the elected officials, all conspire 24 hours a day to manipulate the minds of the public.
The Deacon in Blue exposes the Trimet and Public transportation conspiracy
Notice how many transit operators have been lured into this once-honored profession the past five years, only to find benefits have systematically declined in the same time period? There is a reason. Management, under direct and highly-secret orders from the Department of Transportation, has put into effect policies that force operators to adhere to schedules to the fraction of a second. The reason? Because transit operators are part of the first elimination phase. Timing is precise, as massive amounts of people will need to be quickly transported to disposal plants, in order to create the element of surprise.

Trimet says they are on time 85+% of the time
One hell of a Trimet rant
Like an idiot I engage their stupidity 'because of the purple line and because my names is Max like the trains here and because it sounds good and because it's symbolic of the subculture of Portland's transit system-the fans, the throwaways, the bloggers, the tweeters, the activists, the groups, the observers, the complainers, the thinkers, the comedians, the protestors, and the daily riders.'
They usually reply with 'oh' or just leave the conversation.
The passion surrounding this transit system is a giant circle jerk. A self pleausre. An indulgence that will never be satisfied. The Purple Line Strangler is my mocking-neigh-my acceptance that all of us who identify issues with Portland's transit system will not live to see the day those issues are resolved. In effect, no matter which gender or sexual preference we assign ourselves today, the transit system in this region is a broken system by design and as such will never be fixed to satisfy our comfort.

Captain SassyPants calls it quits
I'm going to go through his fantastic collection of trimet tweets in the very near future and devote and entire blog post to them.
He's leaving to so some writing at a professional level.
This is one guy I'm going to miss
RISE UP AND FIGHT!
"You should have done this, not that," they say later, smugly condemning us for doing what comes naturally. Easy for them to say.
