    I live in the Derby city and it's been annouced that the city has to cut many of our bus routes. These services are essential to people who live in areas that are many miles from where they work, which is in the downtown area. One lady said when her bus service is discontinued she will have to walk 2 miles to her job. Another bus rider said with the loss of his bus service it will take an extra 40 minutes to get to work and another person who already rides two buses will have to ride three. It is truly terrible and especially since our CITY GOVERNMENT is building a USELESS sports arena. If people don't have jobs how are they going to be able to pay to watch basketball games? It was announced today that one of our biggest hospitals JEWISH is letting over 500 people go, and the insurance company HUMANA is letting 700 go. Something has to be done and done quick. I don't care who does something, just DO IT!! It just burns my butt that the Dems and Reps are so busy disagreeing they are causing more problems thanh solving them. We need a new batch of leaders, the old ones need to take a hike.

    I find it hard to care too much that the cities are going to have to schlep it. Urban elitists have been telling us how to live for years and fucking us up the collective ass; finally they are going to be affected by the CRAP policies they've leveled against those who live in rural communities.

    Suck it up, now you get to walk some miles in our shoes.

    What the hell are you talking about? What "urban elite decision" has affected you even a little bit? What have they leveled against your "rural" (I suspect that means suburban sprawl) community?

    I don't know about where you live, but in NJ the urban areas suck up the bulk of state funding for schools, transportation, parks, sports facilities and whatever else they desire.

    The destruction of fishing/logging/lumber industries.
    Land use laws which prevent development.

    And I live in a VERY rural area, thank you very much, elitist craphead.
