I hate to tell these businesses, the people that use LRT are not the type of people that support private businesses. They ar more along the line of those that suck off the Gubbamint and steal from Private businesses. The people that support the private businesses along the LRT route, will be discouraged from visiting these businesses along the route due to having to deal with the buses and trains, and lack of parking nearby. In a year, there will be no commerce on University Ave and it will be our new and improved Ghetto.

By tying all these areas together around a public transit corridor, the synergy should help many things increase. Just look at Chicago and their crime statistics, we have to catch up.

However, In a display of brilliance, George Bush "created" a Killing Zone in Iraq that the Muslim Terrorists could not resist. They "Collectivized in the Zone" and made the control of these Collectivists much easier and efficient.
Think of the Central Corridor in these terms and Americans will have a place that is an efficient control zone for the Feral Children of the Barry Soetoro Tribalsist's.
When these Children of the Barry Backers use their Obamaphones to set up a Mob Assault on a Free market Enterprise, whose owners work 60-70 hour weeks to pay for the Obamaphones, it will be easier for the Police State to round up the tribal Children if they are all on a Train after their assault on those that feed them.
Look at that cup as 1/2 full.
When the Collectivists are removed from Office in one of the Election Cycles,(2014?), decent people will be able to remove the Feral and Genetically Defective from society as the Collectivists break the Laws.

IMHO there is one (1) reason why the Central Corridor was constructed.

To provide a nice train ride with minimal stops for Phyillis Kahn to get to the Legislature. She and the DFL could care less about shops along Uni, they are all owned by evil republicans anyway.

These damn decision makers should have brought the tracks down Grand Avenue. There are more and better businesses along that stretch than University. Oops, that would mean bringing down the value of "that" neighborhood with all the low life scums and thugs, which are associated with public transport. I'm guessing a few lives or have family/ friends who lives in the area so they did not want to ruin their peaceful home. Gotta keep the status quo.

The messiah's Handlers have him Repetitively Repeat "Middle Class" on a daily basis.

What is the "Middle Class"?

Nothing!

If the Evil Rich earn $1.00 and the Victim Demokrat Womyn earn $.99.....the "Middle Class earns $.995.

Thus, bringing all down, makes the "Low Information Voter" FEEL it is fair.

Therefore, how best to bring everyone down?

By the use of "Public Policy" destroy the successful by transferring the Wealth of the Productive to the the Dependent Sheeple. Building Shiny Baubles like a New Choo Choo Train for the Sheeple to ride on assuages the angst that the Sheeple FEEL.

Destroy the businesses along the path that the Choo Choo follows so that the Sheeple on the Train that goes to the Government Center, do not yearn for what the cannot have.

This is "Fair"

Like pieces off a puzzle, when the whole LRT picture is complete, it will be a masterpiece that the Cons can never compete with.

English, really? Please show a published reference to "LMAOROTFU". If you cannot, just quit posting for a while like you normally do when shown to be really wrong.

Topix, come for the exchange of ideas, stay for the spelling corrections from the low integrity poster with marginal spelling skills

These rail solutions cause one thing, the area along side the rail turns in to a railyard. So all along the new Univercity Railyard will be a vast wasteland, like someone else posted.

Raillines are killing zones. Rail cars don't have the ability to stop if someone gets on a track. Instead the train runs over killing/destroying anything on the track.

Unlike a bus or car there IS a chance they can be stopped in time to avoid the collision. Trains don't stop resulting in death.

Also trains are operated from a long distance and can smear riders.

Oh, I get it, only the other posters on here are responsible for all their other posts each and every time out. YOUR posts are only available to the last one, and that one disappears as soon as you post another. Got it, low integrity poster.
