Good for you, but your remark was irresponsible just the same. Not everyone has that flexibility. Why you on the far left are so simple minded is intriguing.
Like the folks on the east coast wailing about "Where the hell is FEMA," rather than "Where the hell are NJEMA or NYEMA, or ConEMA!!" right?
Just for the record, the (red) state I live in only has two cities with bus lines. Public transportation here is viewed as welfare, and as 'something for the losers who can't afford their own car' rather than the economically, and ecologically sound choice that it actually is. The users, takers, and energy hogs, always get it wrong.
