Trimet Deke’N Blue on outsourcing the Powell shuttle

https://fromthedriverside.blogspot.com/2018/12/kiss-my-hard-working-union-ass.html

When our "Bored" of Directors (a nickname I chose after being to a few of their meetings, in which they appear as wax statues with recording boxes in their collective larynx emanating predictable corporate soundbites that echo "Yeah, whatever he says") steamrolled the hiring of a new GM.

ATU757 has posted on their website this post http://www.atu757.org/check-your-check-its-pay-raise-season-at-trimet/ and they are patting themselves on the back for all the hard work they have been doing and attempting to convince the members that they are doing a good job for them. There are many things I would like to point out in what they are telling members and I hope members take a good look at the information.

4. As for the depression issue there really isn’t anything you can do as a transportation agency. They run this place like it’s the military with no regard for their employees as human beings and other agencies will have to be involved to change this

Remember when?

This clip illustrates what TriMet and its Boarof Director (Portland,Oregons public transit agency) is doing in a very well orchestrated public relations campaign.  For all those who give their three minutes of public testimony before the Board, for all those who attend the TriMet public out reach meetings,for all those who serve on the numerous TriMet advisory committees;you are being played for fools.  Your opinions,your facts and your concerns are really not considered in the final, preordained agenda by this appointed group.  They refer and think of themselves as the guardians who have the "legal authority " and the "the common good" at the heart of every decision they make to  keep, what as I refer to as "The Capital Project Ponzi Scheme" on track and rolling right into the taxpayers wallets.  The foundation for the taxpayers approval of the 2020 Bond, for the construction of SWCorridor Rail project is now playing;  see we at TriMet how great and generous they are with taxpayers money.  Do not dare bring up waste, passenger or employees safety,large management salaries and more than generous retirement compensation.  These issues are for another time: never, or least until they can put together a fancy PowerPoint presentation to dupe most of us that the " common good" is being well served. The track record of how taxpayer money is being spent, would get most people kick out of a job,let alone in Trimets eyes there is never enough money for them to spend.  We, the taxpayers, should call for a complete overhaul of oversight of TriMet.   I fear that nothing will be done.  My three minutes are up.  So it goes... Two Bells.

Kelsey got $497,000 when he got fired from TransLink

So much corruption involved with North American public transportation. The technocrats that have control over these public transportation Districts have created little fiefdoms for themselves and reward each other absurdly

Mainstream media declares Kathy Wai a hero

In yet another bizarre twist in our information stream the mainstream has declared Wai a hero. Mind you her only accomplishment was delaying the vote two weeks. She even voted yes with all the rest of the sock puppets to continue the unconstitutional  fare sweeps.

The fake news never ends.

Steve Banta news

https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2018/11/07/former-valley-metro-ceo-stephen-banta-fraud-sentencing-postponed-until-nov-20/1896285002/

The Attorney General's Office began investigating Banta shortly after The Republic in November 2015 found he routinely flew first class, stayed in a nearly $600-a-night hotel room and bought alcohol for himself and guests at restaurants while running the transit system.
The Republic obtained Valley Metro documents through the state's Public Records Law and found that Banta on several occasions was reimbursed for dinners up to $470 in which the people he claimed to have entertained did not attend.
His expense and credit-card records show he flew first class on eight of the 11 trips he took while representing Valley Metro on business and at conferences in places such as Munich, Germany, and Milan, Italy.
(I liked Steve, a lot. Too bad he enjoyed the pork a little to much in a place like Arizona where they care about that sort of thing. Now if he done this in a ‘blue’ state he most likely would still be running the show)

Trimet unconstitutional fare sweeps passes the Trimet board unanimously

https://youtu.be/NgPGVO-EBEs

Imagine if the American police state started randomly pulling over cars and checking to make sure that each driver had “valid” drivers license, valid car registration and valid car insurance. I wonder how the citizens would react to that? That’s exactly what the police state is doing to transit riders.

People just don’t get it

I’ve spent a good portion of my free time on social media and most of my focus has been on public transportation and Trimet. One thing I understand about social media, in many cases it’s just polarized our society even worse than it was before it became popular.  Everyone is in their own little ‘thought bubbles’ which they share with people of like mind. The thought bubbles don’t react with each other and when they do it never brings about any change of opinions, it just brings conflict.

 I was trying to have a Twitter Debate, and that’s just a fools errand so I then decided to put my thoughts together via video. Needless to say the other person didn’t even bother to watch it

Trimet tries fear

https://trimetpdx.wordpress.com/2018/10/17/trimet-tries-fear/

A Transit officer that demands fare production is enforcing Trimet POLICY. Trimet policy is not law. Period.

Walking away when a TriMet fare inspector asks to see your fare may technically be an option, but it comes with serious risk. When an inspector checks your fare, you aren’t being detained in any legal sense — but if you walk away, a nearby law enforcement officer could see your flight as reasonable suspicion to stop, cite or even arrest you.
Simply put, it’s not worth it.


I call bullshit. The right of avoidance, the right of retreat, the right to remove from a consensual conversation, I don’t recall those being ended. Trimet is flat out telling you that you should be afraid if you choose to exercise your right to avoid self-incrimination in the form of leaving the scene. That’s bullshit

Trimet board meetings

I fear I’ve reached my level of tolerance when it comes to watching that farce called the Trimet Board meeting. I find myself actually getting angry at this group of entitled elitists that make all The decisions that affect the rest of us with zero regard to what the citizens think.  The never ending bullshit and verbal dirreah is just to much for me to bear any longer

It’s very similar to the rage I feel when listening to that orangutan called President Trump speak. The man just gets up there and spouts lie after lie after lie and we are forced to live with it. At least Trump makes me laugh with his insane clown act.

I already know the truth about government. It’s a predator on ‘we the people’. Weather Trimet or Trump, it’s all the same shit show.

If you want to to watch those offensive board meetings do it on the Trimet YouTube site. I’m done with them

(I’ll still post public testimony but I don’t want to listen to those overpaid elitists speak anymore)

Trimet bus vs Trimet max

Pretty good example of failed engineering. The bus hit the train on the way out of the garage. That shouldn’t even be possible




Kim Sewell takes over for Stedmen

believe or not I actually know this person. I met her during one of my McFarlane lawsuits. Instead of McFarlane across the table I had her. I didn’t bother perusing the case became I wasn’t interested in fighting with her. I lost and ended up paying that piece of shit McFarlane $150 bucks!

Anyway I don’t know enough about her to know how she’ll be as the new HR Director. One thing I do know, nobody can be worse than Stedmen

Banana republic called Trimet

Those of us who have been tracking Trimet for years know they are basically unaccountable  to anyone and that includes courts of law. This is not the first time we’ve seen these awful immoral technocrats ignore court decisions.

So here we go again, this time they’re not stealing money out of employees paychecks illegally, this time they are terrorizing their riders

Trimet steals employees time with impunity



Doug Kelsey states that he doesn't follow court rulings and doesn't respect the rights of Trimet riders

How is it possible for Trimet to employ a general manager who doesn't respect the rule of law or the rights of Trimet riders? 
Well we know how don't we, Trimet is its own country and doesn't care about rule of law.

Impressive Trimet tweets


Henry Beasley

Brothers and Sisters,

Last year in our district, we’ve had record levels of attacks on transit workers and the district has done nothing but put Band-Aids on gaping wounds and in some cases done nothing at all.

Nationally, assaults have soared in recent years, without any real action to stem the problem other than grand-standing, cheap alternatives, and pacification of transit workers while the numbers have steadily increased.

When will we say, “Enough is enough?”

Oh my goodness!  The String Theory must be true!  The Hillsboro Fire Truck and the MAX train collision in Hillsboro about 11 years ago with MAX operator Bill Wagoner.   Unfortunately for Bill he was the scapegoat for TriMet and Hillsboro Fire Department.

Trimet management contInues abusing operators

I’ve written several posts regarding the brutality  of the American public transportation industrial complex. A complex owned and operated by a class of over paid aristocrats who really have no idea what it’s like to operate or ride transit on a daily basis.  I even get to the point where I think that transit management INTENTIONALLY creates a system that pits riders against drivers so as to focus public scorn away from the corrupted management. A executive management that reaps in obscene salaries and pensions and doles out billions in corporate welfare while letting riders rot waiting for buses and trains that never show up due to malfunctioning equipment. Management that throws unprepared operators out on the unfamiliar roadways to sink or swim on their own after a few weeks of ‘training’.

 The American public transportation model is a complete and Utter failure and needs to be reorganized. That will never happen  because American public transportation is a function of government and we all know who government serves.

It’s not ‘we the people’
