The fucking CTA

OK, so they just raised my taxes because they could not continue operations otherwise. (So they say) Fine. Maybe it's worth it to me to keep the straphangers off the roads. And I'm sure I just don't understand how giving senior citizens free rides they didn't ask for benefits society.

But what the fuck? You can't raise my fucking taxes to pay for improvements that are more "pleasing to the eye" to the riders. First, this is coming from the agency that gave up the "cream and green limousine" color scheme for the garish white blue and red. Second, I don't appreciate subsidizing public transportation just to have them instantly waste the money on PLASMA TVs (and the millions of dollars of infrastructure required to pay for it)! Christ!

Especially when the bus line that goes closest to my house (where there are no sidewalks leading to it or a bus shelter to wait at for the hourly or every other hourly service), when that bus is never more than 15% full.

Rod Blagojevich is the worst governor of anything, ever.
