Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. Our boneheaded Cobb government without our knowledge or approval has decided it is a good idea to spend $10 million of our hard-earned money to “teach people how to use public transportation.” Yep, I know it’s hard to believe but there it is in black and white in the MDJ article “Cobb breaks ground on new $10M paratransit facility.” We also get to finance the operation of this joke to the tune of $52,000 a year, if you believe that’s all it will cost. There was no mention of the cost of furnishing the building with desks, chairs, electronics, landscaping, etc.
My dear friends, this story proves why it is crucial to vote NO on July 31 and stop in its tracks the Transportation Investment Act, aka TSPLOST. When the highest elected and appointed government officials of Cobb County can, with a straight face, brag about flushing down the toilet $10 million of our money to teach people how to ride the bus, when they have the nerve to proclaim this kind of junk as brilliant planning, then it is time for us to take drastic action.
This kind of crazy spending stops only when we stop it. Vote NO to the TIA and throw out of office every incumbent politician who supports this kind of insanity.
