By now, we've come to know what a co-opted, non-Republican RINO my brother-in-law, Commissioner Marc Boldt, has become.
That's the set up for the comment left under the democratian's blog post entitled: Boldt's soothing letter on light rail.
What the letter said was meaningless pap: Boldt has been completely taken over by the downtown special interests and democrats that run his political life. With a rate of 99% or so, Boldt votes with democrat Steve "The Liar" Stuart (Most famous for his lying campaign promise to make sure we had a loot rail vote THIS November) against the only Republican on the commission, Tom Mielke.
This comment is at the bottom of the page. And I am ashamed to admit that I didn't think of it. But I wish I had..
Indeed.George VartanianMy question is one of process, not a position on transit. Why is it there was enough information to have a vote when the tax issue was a combined vote for an increase in taxes to fund bus as well as light rail etc. but if the two are separated "Many of the details surrounding the light rail and bus rapid transit proposals remain to be worked out"? It seems to me separating the vote for clarity for the voters is a good idea, but I don't understand why separating the issues causes a postponement of the vote.
Tim "The Liar" Leavitt, in his little playground-throwing fit, stood behind this non-existent "lack of information" scam as his excuse for muscling his whiny veto of the whole thing.
Mr. Vartanian points out what should have been obvious to me:
That if there was enough "information" available to vote on this as a JOINT proposal, then there damned sure was enough information available to vote on it separately.
It's hard to escape the conclusion, then, that the "lack of information" scam is a lie; and that the slime like Leavitt, Stuart and Boldt are stalling to make sure they can jam it down a sub-district's throat... much like the last C-Trans scam vote in 2005, where tens of thousands forced to pay for this rip off were excluded from having any say.
Well done, George.
