Public Transit Benefits Small Business


"A new study finds that commuters with access to free public transportation don’t drive any less — but they do take more leisure and shopping trips than those who have to pay a fare, which could help provide local economies with the cash they need to provide more social services."

The economic concept of induced demand (i.e., "build it and they will come") is fully illustrated here. And although increased access to public transit did not reduce miles-driven, it did increase revenue to local small businesses!

Sedition

Following the January 6th attack on the Capitol, the seditionists have gone into deep hiding!  Blogger, Sark, Guy, Wolf, and the rest have sunk their heads down in the hopes that we will overlook their multi-year cooperation in this anti-American farce that is Trump-ism.  Even the the aptly-named "Nobody" who attempted a competing blog following our departure from racism/fascism/authoritarianism has deleted  her own content after the coup d'etat. (Note that "Nobody" is the reason why we are moderating comments for racist and fascist content...probably explains the blog deletion).  Hear it here and hear it loud - fascism and authoritarianism are not welcome here.

Biden Is Filling His Cabinet With Pro-War Sycophants

"If you were hoping for a change of heart from Joe Biden after a decades-long career as a hawk, we've got bad news: his incoming team helped shape some of the most militaristic policies of the Obama administration." Read here

Coup D'Etat and Treason

What we saw on Wednesday was the logical result of years of incoherent ramblings from an unhinged and incompetent President. Trump stoked and prodded his own army of imbeciles to storm the Capitol, resulting in multiple charges of terrorism.  One such imbecile described his own participation as religious, saying : "'Lord, is this the right thing to do? Is this what I need to do?' He says he felt God's hand on his back, pushing him forward." Sound familiar? Blogger and his deranged ilk have spouted similar "God told me so" ramblings for years.  Is it any wonder that Blogger, Sark, Guy, Wolf, etc. no longer contribute to this blog? They finally understand their role in this insanity. They finally understand the consequences of their stupidity.  Blogger et al. are culpable and they know it.
