The discussion of circular logic began in our house last week when the trusty husband sent me an IM saying that Algr* (Al Gore) had won the Nobel Peace Prize for that stupid ass movie. I have so little to say about that because I’m afraid if I start my head might explode. Just. ugh. can’t. GAH! *blam* and there it goes.
On the heels of of that blinding glimpse of stupidity I was watching the news last night. This is not something I do on a frequent basis. Not because I don’t want to be an informed citizen, but rather because most news agencies select the stupidest people to interview and I am in complete denial that the collective IQ of my surrounding community is all of 2. That and I don’t want to be informed of anymore overseas deaths. (wholly unrelated to communal stupidity. One that would be classified as governmental stupidity.)
So we’re watching the news and there is a segment about Prop. 1. Now if you live in the Seattle Metro or surrounding areas or if you’ve visited here you’ll know that our traffic sucks. I mean su-hucks. On a good day a commute from Bellevue to Tacoma (approximately 40 miles) could take up to 2 hours. There is no mass transit in this area. A dinky little system is being built, but it isn’t enough. We have a great bus system, but it still almost 2 hours to get to the eastside.
Prop. 1, which I am grossly undereducated about, will fund transit improvements. One of those being the Mercer mess. A section of downtown Seattle that is simply a nightmare.
I am all for funding 4 things. Schools, Rescue Services and road improvements. I don’t care the cost. Now there is staunch opposition to Prop. 1. Why? God only knows. Probably because it will cost taxpayers money. God forbid we have to pay for services.
However, our local television station elects to feature Joe Dumbass as the voice of No on Prop. 1.
Joe Dumbass states that if we improve/build more roads people will use them. And if people use them it will cause more traffic and then cause global warming.
He watched Algr’s movie… didn’t he?
*it is in your best interest to not defend Algr.? I will let Neal’s comment slide, however any further praise, love, defense or adoration of a most disliked man in our house will be met with swift banning of this site.? I am all for healthy discussion, but this is much like my Jehovah’s Witness neighbor continually trying to convert me.? Not going to happen.
