By now, anyone paying attention knows what a scam the C-Trans/CRC/Downtown Mafia/identity Vancouver scum have been running on us.
Several years ago, we had a loot rail vote that was crushed at the polls... in the vicinity of a 30% yes vote.
For years after that, the democratization lied, connived through bogus polls, and cheerleaded for a "study" with a pre-ordained outcome that completely disregarded the reality and the facts of the matter concerning our local transportation system. Then, they conspired to eliminate those bothersome ingrates paying the bills from having any say. Because those self-appointed slimeballs decided that they know better. They decided that what THEY want is much more important than what WE want.
The idea that this steaming pile should be built without our permission has NEVER been explained. How is it that, back in the day, a vote was required for a project much smaller and cheaper but now, indebting us for generations and slamming the 65,000 commuting families with an additional$1300, $1400, $1500 per year tax to work in Oregon is a decision taken out of our hands?
The democratian was supposed to find out. But it's much like their active cover up of the Jim Jacks misconduct scandal... they were SUPPOSED to find out about that as well, but, gee, Jacks was a democrat who'd toed their line to a "t," so they kept up their end of the bargain and buried it.
Those in charge of us know we don't want this crap pile; if they did, they'd put it to a vote. So, they lie.
The biggest liar is, of course, Tim "The Liar" Leavitt, who, in conjunction with the next biggest liar, Steve "The Liar" Stuart who was helping to run his campaign, made up the phony issue that he, Leavitt was opposed to tolls. He hammered away on that issue, and sucked many of the more naive political types into supporting his candidacy while they ignored my warnings that Leavitt was a liar, a con, and a cheat, telling them what they wanted to hear to get elected... and then kicking them to the curb as he flipped his position on "tolls" so magically about 60 seconds after the was elected.
Then, of course, we have my own brother-in-law, former Republican, and now democrat Commissioner Marc Boldt, who lied directly to my face at the county GOP convention when he told me he would make sure we had a county wide advisory vote on the entire project.. LAST November, a vote he had no intention of ever holding.
Then, of course, we have Steve "The Liar" Stuart, who lied about holding a county wide loot rail vote as a part of HIS re-election campaign... because it closely mirrored the lies he engineered for his buddy "The Liar" Leavitt.
That's right, late in Stuart's despicable campaign, he lied:
As a member of the C-Tran board, Stuart said, he worked to protect lower fares for disabled riders and fought a move to cut transit services to the disabled.
As for light rail, he said, “My focus is to provide you with a vote, and because of the work we did, there is going to be a vote next November.”Not happening. And it never WAS going to happen.
Scum lie that way, don't you know.
So, what happens? These scum don't want a loot rail vote to interfere with their bogus effort to jack up our sales tax... AGAIN... for C-Scam.
Which is why we get crapped on like this:
C-Tran decision on light rail voter makeup postponed
Tuesday, June 14, 2011
After a heated discussion last month over who would vote on a sales tax increase for light rail and bus rapid transit, the C-Tran Board of Directors quietly decided Tuesday night to postpone that decision until after the November election.
C-Tran board members said they want to focus on seeing its 0.2 percent sales tax to preserve existing bus service pass in November before deciding details, such as the size of a taxing district, for a 2012 vote.
The C-Tran board split in May over whether to put out a sales tax increase for high-capacity transit in 2012 to a subdistrict — such as Vancouver and its urban growth boundary, for example — or before the agency’s entire service district, meaning voters in Yacolt also would have sway over service in downtown Vancouver.
Vancouver’s three representatives from the city council threatened to use a bloc veto to stop the board from deciding last month, saying more information was necessary.
Clark County Commissioner Marc Boldt, who is the C-Tran Board chairman, said Tuesday that the board shouldn’t drag the matter along.
“We’re very committed to going to voters in 2012 for our part of the Columbia River Crossing,” Boldt said. “Rather than carry this on, I think we need to make some decisions. We can’t keep talking about districts or subdistricts.”More:
Have you ever noticed that when these slime want to screw us, their tendency is to do it "quietly?"
