Technophobe? HAHAHAHAHA!!! Legitimate fear of being bankrupted by LIE-beral knuckleheads has nothing to do with technology!
Here is an old post I wrote in early 2017 and the points made are valid and are now proven!
I think we should call Toronto public transit the “Bitter Way” due to the quality of service it now delivers! TTC now seems incapable of getting through a single week without having a major failure someplace in the system- especially during cold weather.....thus creating the “bitter” experience for long suffering riders who DON' T have any alternative than to ride the DUD red rocket!
To be fair-John Tory inherited this TTC mess along with the Metro Toronto Housing miss-management team and these messes have been built on years of greed by civil service Hogs and the politicians they have chosen for their willingness to fuel the socialist silly hall gravy train INSTEAD of making sure that CRITICAL infrastructure was maintained and updated where necessary! However, Sorry Tory is proving he is entirely willing to sit on his duff and fiddle like Nero as Toronto Transit crumbles.
So it’s going to be a LONG 4 years for Jackass JOHN, the Sorry Tory…..though there will be LOTS of photo ops for him….but I don’t think he will enjoy them!!! He will have lots of chances to explain those brick walls that are now falling off Metro Toronto Housing Authority buildings while MTHA chiefs pocket obscene bonuses; plenty of time to explain in detail how at least 400 MILLION dollars (and STILL counting!) disappeared up the Spadina subway; he can run around like a little Dutch boy plugging his fingers into the crumbling pipes that supply our water and flush away our waste; he can cry endless crocodile tears as aged and impoverished residents are evicted from MTHA housing that will be condemned for rot and rats and drug deals gone bad ; and he can even tell thousands of commuters that they will not be able to use the Gardner Expressway any more, once enough concrete crumbles off it to scare city officials into closing it! Too bad Jackass John won’t ever get around to FIXING any of the problems as he is much more concerned with handing out rich gravy to the Working Family clowns who put him in power….for just THAT reason!
But the capper to his crapper career will be explaining (probably in his `memoirs`) why he was not able to build any transit…..no subway, no LRT and not even his short cut smart track crap….Metrolinx gravy train riders will study it to death….at the usual HUGE expense…..and DO NOTHING USEFUL!!!!! GET USED TO IT!!!! This is the face of BANKRUPTCY!!!! All talk of great dreams and no money to do ANYTHING......and its ALL the fault of some other level of government.....which just happens to be wrestling with its own array of troubles!
Jackass John, the Sorry Tory seems not to understand that he has the chance to make a CHOICE here. He can either hand out rich gravy and bonuses to Working Family slobs (as he is expected to) and make them happy for this year and they will then come back next year like drug addicts for another gravy `fix` and if he chooses this road he will then go down in the record books as the WORST Toronto mayor ever.....OR.... he can grow a spine and take a stand and cut the gravy and spend the money thus saved to repair things and then go into the history books as a strong and independent and responsible mayor that served the true MAJORITY of Toronto residents and if he follows this road and defies the Hogs, he may get SEVERAL MORE terms in office and will be remembered fondly and proudly after he is ready to retire.
Somebody needs to tell Jackass John that he better pick his fights quickly....oh, I know he has a 4 year term....but we all know that the 4th year is spent by city council in a dog fight to secure a chance at re-election and nothing meaningful will be done in that last year except make worthless promises. Jackass John only has 3 useful years and he has already wasted HALF of the first one!
It’s been a week since Jackass John the Sorry Tory exposed his failings as a mayor YET AGAIN! In the same week we were told that Metro Toronto Housing Authority handed out its usual obscene salaries along with a pile of outrageous `performance` bonuses-the `performance` apparently being based on nothing more than an ability to spout nonsense through a mouth stuffed full of RICH GRAVY while counting up an insane list of entitlements that we cannot hope to pay for. We also had Jackass John-the Sorry Tory whining to the media that MTHA tenants would be homeless in 7 years as their buildings will be CONDEMNED and shuttered due to the ruined and neglected condition of the buildings. Jackass believes this is the fault of the province and the federal government.....nothing to do with that HUGE, BLOATED, OVERFED GRAVY TRAIN running through Socialist Silly Hall! What a Maroon that Sorry Tory is!
Based on number of inhabitants, people of Toronto ALREADY get TEN TIMES MORE money from Queens Park than any other municipality!! And yet Jackass EVEN WANTS MORE!!!!
Jackass apparently does not read newspapers and is unaware that Ontari-owe is bankrupt thanks to the idiot spending of Lie-berals led by McWynnty-the shameless Ontari-owhore who has sold herself, her party and our future to Working Family Coalition!
Previous mayor Rob Ford at least had the guts to shame MTHA into selling off a few of the hundreds of single family dwellings they own-the majority of these dwellings sit empty and derelict and uninhabitable due to the range of repairs needed to bring them up to a livable standard...repairs that MTHA cannot afford to do.....and so the properties sit....rotting AND COSTING MONEY that MTHA DOES NOT HAVE! The shuttered properties must be guarded and secured against vandalism, lawns mowed, snow on sidewalks shovelled and the work must be done by costly Gravy Train Riders.
If the city would follow Fords lead in this- those uninhabitable but still valuable properties (as land downtown is hugely expensive) would be sold and the money be used to make a dent in the number of repairs needed at multi-family MTHA buildings that are still inhabitable (BARELY!) to PREVENT them from being condemned in the near future! And the properties that were sold would become income generators for the city-there would be jobs produced as the properties were renovated and then taxes paid on the refurbished buildings and somebody else (rather than costly Gravy Train Hogs) would shovel the snow and mow the grass and secure the buildings.....but all this is too easy for Jackass John....he wants the easy way, the INSANE way! Not content with leading a bankrupt city, Jackass John wants to bankrupt us ALL by getting other levels of government involved in Hogtown madness !!!
More irrelevant rubbish. Try to stay on topic.
