Seattle's homeless crisis episode 6 Share ally the Transit Riders union


TRANSIT RIDERS UNION: SUBSIDIZING SLOW INEFFECTIVE TRANSPORTATION AND LAZY ANGRY BUS DRIVERS THAT DON'T GIVE A &#*^@!!
In episode six and beyond, we'll take a look at SHARE WHEEL's allies. In this episode we'll discuss one of their biggest backers, the Transit Riders union.

According to liberals, TRU is about low income riders joining together with bus drivers to demand cheap effective transporation that works. Transportation for poor working citizens that is cheap, routes that will take them anywhere at anytime and to demand safer transportation.

It is anything but.

TRU is in truth more of a union for Metro bus drivers to demand higher salaries, lower accountability for bad behavior and ineptitude, less hours, more perks and higher taxes on the working man.

TRU allies with groups like SHARE WHEEL and Seattle Socialists to get its demands met and agitate. For example: 

  • extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district, Bellevue and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders. 
  • Give riders lower fares to get to Northgate, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Extend the rail to Angle lake, Federal way then Tacoma extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders. 
  • Bring back the free ride zone extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Create more bus routes to nowhere extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Bring back Metro routes to Downtown University to comply with rail extension, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.     
  • Hire more cops to punish fare jumpers and homeless people who camp out on the late owl, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  

  You get the idea.


the latest bid by TRU to screw up Seattle is to set up an employment tax on business. What this does is tax businesses for creating a certain amount of jobs I think its up to 50 and then each of these jobs they have to pay a tax. In other words businesses are punished for hiring workers and creating jobs.

You gotta ask yourself, why would anyone want to support that? I mean why do you want to punish businesses for making jobs? What makes you think they wont lay off workers to increase profits? Don't we want them to do the opposite? Don't we want to reward businesses for creating jobs? Don't we want to reward productivity? Why would we want to tax a business for making jobs?

Maurice Newhope you may remember who was in Seattle last year working for us was at the TRU meeting and when it was over he confronted one of TRU's members who supported this initiative and asked how punishing businesses would make things better, the man claimed that Bush''s tax cuts failed so therefore soaking the rich would be the best solution. When Asked how it would effect small businesses he responded that everyone had to pay their share and sacrifice and that people who couldn't find work in Seattle were stupid. He then said that to oppose raising taxes was fascist.

Complete utter Bolshevism and deception from top to bottom! First of all, Bush's tax cuts worked very well! At least they worked well in red states that did not have leftists and raised taxes up the wazoo to pay for all the budget busting handouts for bums and lazy government workers so called. They cooled down the economy and brought an end to the recession that started in Clinton's last year and for the remainder of Bush's term until Democrats took over congress, the median unemployment nationwide was below the double digits. the only places where jobs were scarce was California, Massachusetts (Thanks a lot Mitt!) New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, The upper midwest, and pretty much all of New England and the Mid Atlantic with the exception of New Hampshire.

As for raising taxes, well history proves that has never worked. California for example loses jobs and skilled workers who pay taxes so there goes your tax base as well, Massachusetts when they established Romney care and taxed businesses for healthcare caused a massive slump in jobs and lead to Massachusetts being the only state that had negative net migration. (EVEN THE BUMS ON WELFARE WANTED OUT!)The state's healthcare industry also capsized from the loads of cases they couldn't handle leading to rationing. The only winners were big Pharma, Big government, Big medical and Greyhound.

TRU is made up of the worst communist liberals of all kinds. The hardcore bums who use the bus as a motel, the drivers who make New York drivers look prudish and look like Victorian butlers, communists, social activists, those who want to live off the few able to work or find work.

If there was ever reason to ban public service unions its TRU. Some of Share's other union allies such as the SEIU who benefit from working together with bums to avoid work while they line their pockets with our money.

TRU is connected with King county services who are currently letting the homeless use their administration building as their campsite to avoid having to do any work at all. TRU backs the squatters and have even threatened to shut down transit in the downtown area if they lay a hand on them.

No problem with that, Seattle would love to use SHARE and the plight of the needy to line their pockets  and raise taxes once again. Anyways they are too busy clearing out the jungle of homeless vagrants and campers to do anything right now. More on that next time.

They're not drivers they're just sympathizers. Riders but they are on the side of the drivers. And they also support communist laws that make it hard for everyone so the drivers and riders get a kickback!
