The future of public transportation exists in seminal projects all around us. Every thing from sisal bodied electric cars to moving slide walks. They will happen as soon as there is political will to make it happen.

The biggest problem for politicians is not spending money. They can do THAT just fine. That is just a debating point. Its knowing where to spend the money to get the biggest political leverage.

To that end, you must create a grass roots movement to break the back of the present is driving developed nations into bankrupcy just to replace all those bridges! Not to mention the soul crushing horror of the highways deaths and damage.

Your states are as big as European countries. So its not size holding TGV back. (Another red herring debating point) Its the present vested interests. Who got the bail outs? General Motors or the Northern Pacific Railway? Which one moves more people every day, and which one kills a hundred people every day? (see what I mean?

The small university town in Fredicton New Brunswick decided that rather than increase the number of police on the streets to try to keep drunk kids from being, well, kids, they simply issued a heavily subsidised taxi pass (like a bus pass) to the students, and increased the parking fees. Worked like a charm. Reduced the accident rate to nearly zero, and cost much the same as three or four extra constables. A similar E-pass here in Ottawa has had similar results, but has proved to be controvercial. But...thats the kind of thinking we need. Not "well, build bigger roads, more parking areas and put more police on the roads". The problem was dead students and massive downtown congestion on Friday nights. The E-pass fixed that.

Of course, that is not an answer to how to bring TGV trains into the will happen when you can convice these people that they can make a buck on it.

This was in responce to Cerilean Bill's rant about why there was no high speed trains in the US.

Cloward Piven Strategy

The Cloward Piven Strategy is much better spouted here on ACORN's site, however it is worth examining purely to discover what the HELL is wrong with people! Here, spelled out in neat concepts is the whole Cloward Piven Strategy.

What the CPS is attempting to do is to collapse the political system of the day with the intention of replacing it with a more socialist one. Interestingly enough, it works. Sort of. For awhile.

I don't know what to say. What do you say about a the light shining on the hitherto unsuspected axe which is in the process of staving in your boat?

Ah well. I am sure I shall come up with something.

How about that one BILLION dollars spent on the last G-8 conference in Toronto. Think for a moment about how expensive it was to pay the salaries of policemen like Officer Bubbles in this video.

Right now, I am wondering how to keep the case of Junior Manon on the front burner.

Be that as it may, the purpose of the Cloward Piven Strategy was to use up as many of those resources as they can, to burn through as many tax dollars as possible.

I think it is high time to examine these issues, find out what is causing them, and then write some letters.

Some might get the idea that I am opposed to such an organized resistance to "the man". In actual fact, I think that resistance is required in a free and democratic society, and lets face it, the avowed purpose of the CPS is to collapse the wellfare state. As we have seen by microcosms like Attawapascat that the welfare state is a wolf in sheep's clothing, so its collapse will not be mourned by most.

I used to believe that Canada was the Sociaism that Worked. Then I find out that my Prime Minister is talking about reducing or limiting the Old Age Security benefits. Well, its not like the boomers are a phenomonon which was not expected! People have been warning about what will happen when the population "hump" will hit retirement age. Well, its here now duded! What planning have you made? Oh right....thirty five billions on fighter jets. Four billions on new prisons. Hmmmm.

I wonder if he read poly sci in Cloward's class back in the '60's.
