MTA LOCKS OUT many with tap robotized machines and Inadequate Tools for LA PUBLIC rail use (tags)
Tap machines set by MTA in rail stations have confusing & frustrating too little info and options. Sr. rates not shown or flick off, Tap card only good for 1 day, has fixed $$$ amts to add fares, LACK OF any real ASSISTANCE or clarity in how to use them plastic cards - so have we turned into robotized plastic obedients who overpay, cant communicate with metal machines, and are Tapped OUT of metro-rail use ? NOT in big LA, but it is ! Someone fix it quick or we'll be locked out of our humanity and intelligent responsiveness and responsibilities too. Tap cards are not a helpful solution required to transport in LA - MTA listen up ! .... but have they ever ?

The 5:32 AM Train to Washington, D.C. (tags)

When I got to D.C., “Big Brother’s’” cameras watched me get on and off the Metrorail. When I tried to videotape a demonstration at the DOE, a security guard threatened to confiscate my camcorder and to put me “in handcuffs!”

Yet there is an even better alternative for people wanting to make long distance commutes.

It was Gulf War I, and I was marching up the old Post Rd. in Connecticut for Peace. I carried a sign reporting on the number of our soldiers that had been killed thus far, when a sleek, silver BMW pulled up alongside me. The profusely sweating, purple faced man, his bejeweled ringed, sausage fingers, tightly gripping the hand tooled leather steering wheel, spit in my face screaming, "You no-good, unemployed, Communist faggot!"
