Septa is not just about public transit

September, from the Latin Septum, meaning Seven.

Latin seems so non-inclusive.   Each special interest  group in the Democratic Party should be encouraged to rename days, months and planets.

    South East Transporation Authority of Pennsylvania… flush that down to your septum tank. 😉

    BTW- Ever wonder why the market tends to tank in septum?

    This was on WCSP 90.1 Washington, DC today (C-SPAN Radio) and is very interesting. It is four very smart articulate college students debating Libertarianism and Conservatism (the two main factions of the Republican Party). While all the media is focused on the factions in the Democratic Party due to the primaries, this is a refreshing change. Both sides are very thoughtful and though-provoking and the SRG people that listen to talk radio should enjoy it:

    Some of my time recently is been learning about intermodal transportation. I have to admit I overestimated is possibilities for pulling trucks off the road. CSX built a huge facility in North Baltimore Ohio. They seem to have this notion that a shipper would drive their trailer a hundred miles out of their way to drop it at a transmodal terminal in the middle of a corn field to avoid delivering this shipment directly to their custoner 200 miles away.

    Now the facility basically just chops up sections of trains arriving from other railroads and splices pieces together based on the destination. Following the Krispy Kreme business model, if sales are down, raise prices.

    Norfolk Southern just laid off 130 people in Roanoke.

    In Elwood, Illinois BNSF has screwed things up so badly, dray drivers returning empty containers average 57 minutes waiting on the street just to get in the gate

    90% of freight is still going by truck.

    If I change the name of the blog to America loves Chick-fil-A macaroni and cheese, do you think it would increase traffic?

      Correct orientation

      Speaking of which, the author of the famous HB2 transgender bathroom bill is running in a special election tomorrow. Countess gets to vote, but I am now in the Alma Adams 12th district where all I can do is vote for her best hat. WBTV drove up to Greensboro because it is clear she is still living outside of the district she represents. Then again, George HW Bush said he was living in a hotel room in Houston TX.

        Dan Bishop won. Two Mecklenburg County precincts held out until 11:00 pm but stealing 4,000 votes was beyond reach so McCreavy conceded

        So get your gender identity cards in order…

          The city of Charlotte was holding is primary as well, which I did not know until I saw the election results. The primary election for everything else is in October.

          The good news for people who still live in Charlotte is that the craziest of the crazy city council members was voted out. She had a safe district but for some reason ran at large.

          Among her more interesting things is she said that police are terrorists and that 911 what is actually a controlled demolition, The Alex Jones version of Truth. She thinks she lost because of robocalls made to people in the white part of Charlotte.

            New Jersey does something similar – school budgets and boards are not elected in November when everyone votes, but sometime in the spring when only people with children will vote and vote for people that want to increase the spending.

            They also use the snow day alert system to remind parents to vote, and exclude non-parents from the reminders.

        "Correct orientation"?

        What is the difference between "orientation" and "gender" in 2019? Isn't that a one to many relationships? 😉

        Remember people used to ask "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?" I ask if in the world of political correctness, how is is possible that there exists no correct orientation? 😉

      Hell no. This is Keto Nation… in fact, that would be a great name for traffic.

    I realize that there are things going on outside the radio cave, and I may be the last one to find out.

    I had to go to FedEx today to drop off a letter for my lawyer, and they have a big sign announcing that the big bad federal government is forcing them to ask for a government-issued photo ID to send a package, even if you are paying cash.

    I wonder if I said I was in an illegal alien if they can waive that rule.

      Mr. Rosenwald of course is full of crap. He asserts that it is talk radio that got Donald Trump elected.

      Just off the top of my head, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Hugh Hewitt were firmly anti Trump and Cindy McCain was given an election year forum to blast Trump non stop on radio.

      • briand75 says:

        Dems hate Trump so much – they overlook the fact that it was the American people who elected Trump. Which points out one interesting aspect – both parties have ignored the American people for a very long time.
