Re: “Durham-Orange County Light Rail Heads to the Federal Government

THIS is not the infrastructure needed. This is a new project that has no necessisty whatsoever. Only some Commissioners and a developer will gain (making $$). This has a great environmental impact, is way too costly for taxpayers that won't use it, and will become the black hole in which money will be poured. A complete waste to have a damn rail system going from Durham to Orange County. Bus routes will be cut for the few that will ride it. This is the worst case of taxpayer waste I have witnessed in a long, long time, and that says a lot.

The Veil of Secrecy Has Been Lifted....
After many decades of secrecy and operation in the shadows, we, the illuminated ones, must begin to form the young membership. More than ever the world needs an elite group of individuals j work to create the fate of the masses. They need us, but we must once again band together. What you see in the media today was not the original plan of our organization. It is not required that you are already super wealthy, or you are already an elite member of government or business....you must simply seek the light, and seek a world of knowledge that you realize exists, but is not sought after by the masses. You then become enlightened. You have made it to the ranks of the worlds most elite group. You have made it here because you chose to seek. Chose to seek the massive knowledge and power that is provided to those that wish to become enlightened. The path of enlightenment is not difficult, but it will not come to those who do not wish to find it. Never before have we sought out, in any outlet be it traditional print or digital media, a new membership, available to the public. But we now realize that the public is who seeks knowledge, and wishes to use it in a way that helps the masses become enlightened, and live in a way that enlightened ones do ! Now is the new era of the Illuminati! It is simple. You simply must commit. Commit to the plan of enlightenment, agree to further the cause of mans god given right to not live in the dark, to be free, and to live how he was made to live, enlightened. We require that individuals that want to join our branch of The Illuminati pay a small fee to be added to the membership records, and receive an official Illuminati membership certificate. Our goal is to operate as honestly and efficiently as possible. As you imagine, we like to operate in the shadows as much as possible.

Re: “Despite Previous Agreement, Low-Income Forest Hill Apartments Residents Again to Vacate by April 30 or Face Eviction

man, that is so cold and heartless. it is very hard to find an affordable apartment much less find the money to move, deposits, time off of work, etc. there just never seems to be a break for the people that need it the most. it tells me all i need to know about daniel eller's character and shows me how the chamber of commerce defines professional of the year. mr eller is not a positive refection on them. it is always money over people. ethics are so old fashioned and it makes the honest person feel like a sucker to even think a person will act according to them.

Re: “Beer and Wine Wholesalers Gave $53K to ABC Committee Members Last Year, Beat Back a Proposal to Raise Breweries’ Self-Distribution Cap

And THIS is why we have the government we do. Money, plain and simple, buys votes. If you give enough of it, you can get WHATEEEEVER you want. That's why there should be term limits AND time gap requirements between serving in an elected seat and becoming a lobbyist.

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Now Costs More Than $3 Billion, and Durham Will Have to Pay More of It

"Even at 3.3 Billiion it's still worth it. The USA desperately needs to transition to public transportation."

A new cutaway bus cost $67,000 on average in 2007. In 2017, the number is probably closer to $100,000. (See FTA's report, "An Evaluation of the Market for
Small-to-Medium-Sized Cutaway Buses.")

Therefore, for $100 million, Durham could buy *1000* cutaway buses. Why is it worthwhile to spend more than $1 billion on light rail and commuter rail if $100 million could buy 1000 buses? Especially if those buses could be fully autonomous (computer-driven) in 10-20 years?

Doesn't it make more sense to spend $100 million for 1000 fully autonomous cutaway buses than to spend more than $1 billion (more than 10 times as much) for a light rail line that is much more limited in capability?

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Now Costs More Than $3 Billion, and Durham Will Have to Pay More of It

Even at 3.3 Billiion it's still worth it. The USA desperately needs to transition to public transportation. Public transportation and its peripheral industries will create jobs that will get reduce unemployment and generate more money and tax revenue into the economy. It will also reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Even if it is used by low income people and students, there are many more of them than rich people.

Re: “Love Wins Community Center Staff Quits, Alleging Financial Mismanagement by Executive Director

If the allegations are true, particularly the ones about the embezzlement of withholding taxes, an independent audit by the IRS and SBI is necessary. This sounds like serious financial mismanagement.

Re: “Durham Commissioners Approve Light Rail Plans, Cost-Share Agreement

I attended the meeting, and wanted to speak out against the light rail plans, but since I did not know how/where to sign up as a member of the public, I wasn't recognized. My only consolation is my near-certainty that the Durham Orange Light Rail Project will never be built.

There's a revolution in transportation that is coming in the next 5-20 years, which is autonomous (computer-driven) vehicle technology. Transportation will be provided as a service, rather than people owning their vehicles. Autonomous technology will provide door-to-door transport with travel times that are less than or equal to automobiles today, and at much lower cost than automobiles, and with freedom from the hassles of driving. Parking will also no longer be necessary, and congestion will be greatly reduced.

Light rail, with its higher cost and rigid fixed routes and times, simply can't compete with a fleet of autonomous vehicles. Durham's projected cost of over $1 billion would fund *2000* autonomous full-size buses (at $500,000 each). However, an even better use of the $1 billion would be to simply pay the transportation expenses of lower-income people who use the autonomous vehicle fleets operated by...Uber? Google? Hertz? Ford? (we'll know in the next 5-20 years).

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Now Costs More Than $3 Billion, and Durham Will Have to Pay More of It

Hopefully, light rail will die before very much is spent on it. As noted by gmbmnc, computer-driven vehicles will completely eliminate any need for light rail. Computer-driven vehicles will deliver door-to-door service (without any need for parking). And that door-to-door service will be much more rapid and inexpensive than light rail can hope for.

Re: “The N.C. Wholesalers Association Says Barrel Cap Bill Won't Help Breweries, Attacks Them Anyway

This guy from the wholesalers group blames flat state excise tax revenues on 38 breweries ? Give me a break. There are lots of excise tax in addition to beer wholesalers. Their excuses have been stupid. But then thats how the legislature thinks. HB500 needs to pass committee.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: North Korea Is Becoming Trump’s Cuban Missile Crisis

It is just like the Cuban missile crisis IF.....

1.) Cuba was thousands of miles away

2.) Cuba was not backed by a major global nation with a functioning nuclear arsenal

3.) Cuba had repeatedly tried and failed to launch their ineffectual rockets

4.) There was actually any risk to the U.S. or American citizens

5.) The whole thing wasn't a "wag the dog" moment meant to deflect attention away from Trump's domestic flailing and failing.

Re: “Op-Ed: Revitalization Without Gentrification: The Scrap Exchange in Durham’s Lakewood Neighborhood

Revitalization = Gentrification and a mentality that says the area needs to be made great again. I don't get how publications like Indy Week say they are against people like Trump yet support policies that displace vulnerable groups.
