Well, I live in philly.



And if they start charging to use roads (more than just the turnpike) I sure as hell hope they plan on filling in the damn elephant size potholes.

I looked you up on MCUSA today. I'm going to visit the training blog weekly. Btw, I didn't know you had a black/yellow 6. That was my favorite combo in '01

Default Re: Motorcycles in US Transportation Policy

I totally agree. WA state for the last 2 decades has rejected any increase in the gas tax which was based on cents not a percent of the price. Then sprawl happened. Traffic congestion got bad but folks still wouldn't pay for it. Then leadership from companies like Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, Nordstoms, Kenworth, and the organizations like the Port of Seattle said hey enough is enough we can't move our people and freight efficiently. All the large corporate stakeholders got behind the initiative and it was finally passed and new projects began. The Right wingers than challenged the constitutionality but fortunately road building, HOV construction, Light Rail, (innovative and diverse solutions)continued. Eventually, the State Supreme court threw out the challenge. Meanwhile Seattle is far behind the curve. But progress is being made. You can see it on 167, 18, etc.

Philly is pretty blue.



And unorganized.



Has a lot of corruption.



Wastes a lot of tax dollars.



And we do have the Turnpike!



Whhheeeeeee!!!!!



Government is Super Awesome Fun!

It's what all the rock stars rode back in '01.

Thanks...At the time I choose Yellow cause I wanted to me very visible . I think now I am leaning towards black... Yep my training took a hit this week I am at a Leadership conference in St. Louis this week.. Lots of food and we have do management simulations, case studies, and "networking". Believe or not I actually like to network with my peers....i.e. not everyone hates me just the GPTB hates "kpaul"...They have a nice rec center but I sleep in.. P.S. I had to order another piece to the Pinlock antifogs lens the MUSA description was unclear... Now wife is pissed cause I spent almost $70 on a fog shield (She left a voice mail). In Seattle, its worth it.. Think I will say I am networking tonight and not call her back tonight ..

Where was the photo taken? Is it anyplace near you? Kind of looks like a farm/ranch land in the back.

Thats why I can't go totally Democrat..i.e. in Republican States like Colorado and Texas if they think they need to build a new airport, roads or light rail they do it... i.e. they make a decision and go... Seattle doesn't have a Mayor Daily like democrat or is run by Republicans who see the transportation system as something that is need for commerce... So the democrats can never decide meanwhile companies and now a basketball team decide to leave.. I am also ProLife.. from my Catholic background on my moms side I think.. I am also for a strong defense and tough on crime... But I don't like people telling people how to live, or what to believe in or who can get married.. So I guess I am liberal there.
