There is a reason public transportation never became popular in America. Thugs. America has a bumper crop and it is wise to isolate and avoid them or you will be sacrificed at the alter of socialism.
Don’t live in the city ghetto. Don’t travel with the ghetto on the bus or train. Make city politicans accept and accomodate private, safe transportation. If they don’t, refuse to work in their city.
That’s the unspoken truth. I’ve seen the look of terror as people get on a bus or train and see the only seat(s) available are next to thugs. Especially young females. No wonder people won’t use public transportation.
I had one thug show me a gun on a bus 30 years ago. That was my last time on Greyhound.
“There is a reason public transportation never became popular in America.”
Absolutely; I rode buses for years in college, and it was great motivation to study hard and get a decent job. You don’t even need to look at hi-tech gadgets or PCs to see the divide in this country; some people are just completely incapable of passing a driving test, maitaining insurance/registration on a vehicle, etc., and their personal flaws that put such things beyond their reach are probably the same reason they fail at other things.
