NYC liberals enjoying overcrowded trains



Liberals in New York are puzzled as to why their trains are overcrowded.

For New Yorkers who rely on the 86th Street subway station on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the morning commute is a humbling experience. An endless stream of people funnel onto the platforms. Trains arrive with a wall of humanity already blocking the doorways.

As No. 6 trains pull into the upper level of the station, riders scan for an opening and, if they can, squeeze in for a suffocating ride downtown.

“You can wait four or five subways to get on, and you’re just smushed,” Cynthia Hallenbeck, the chief financial officer at a nonprofit, said before boarding a train on a recent morning.

Delays caused by overcrowding have quadrupled since 2012 to more than 20,000 each month, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The crowded trains can make for tense commutes, contributing to an uptick in assaults among disgruntled passengers, the transit police say. With crowds lining the platform edge, some riders and train operators worry that someone could fall onto the tracks.

And with summer approaching, the imposed intimacy will soon be even less welcome, as platform temperatures climb into the 80s and 90s.

If you read the article, the only explanation you will get for the overcrowding is increased ridership, and a lack of investment in "infrastructure." That gives a tiny clue to what is going on. The system is still using machinery from the early 1900's that prevents trains from coming into the station rapidly. Why hasn't the MTA spent money on updating it? The article won't say.

The real answer is sky high salaries; 25% of MTA employees make over $100,000 a year. With salaries like that and matching pensions and benefits, it's no wonder they have no money to maintain the subways. But the Times would never include the real facts. It's all due to increased ridership, which can't be adjusted for.

Enjoy your stinky, hot, crowded mass transit, liberals!

The following people are to blame for Donald Trump, a man with no history of conservatism, who spoke policy only in the broadest platitudes, and amply demonstrated a lack of temperment to be president, winning the GOP nomination:

Liberals say blacks too dumb to realize they have voter IDs


Liberals used to claim that voter ID laws discriminated against minorities because they didn't have ID's. Black people, you see, never go to doctor's offices, never buy beer, never get a library car, never go to a hotel or rent a car or do any of the many things we all need photo ID's for.
But now liberals have a new talking point: blacks have voter ID's, but are too dumb to realize that they have them, therefore voter ID laws are still racist.

Cruz would have been much smarter to offer Kasich the Vice Presidency


Ted Cruz's pick of Carly Fiorina has been a huge mistake. Not only does she have a personality of a stop sign, but she has no constituency. She is not going to help Cruz in California, she doesn't even live in California anymore. Polls have shown that picking Carly has not even been a blip in the polls. And as I've said, picking a VP before being nominated is a sign of desperation.
