We can argue, debate, rhetorically resist all we want, but at the end of the day “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”. Let’s act!
Instead of protesting the MTA by showing up at these open forums where, you the protester, are at risk to be arrested, why not protest with our collective will? Why not protest with our wallets? The hard truth is that these cuts are coming in one form or another. It is too late to expect that community unrest is going to change the numbers. The MTA has a multi-billion dollar budget gap and cuts will be made. We can begin to smarten up and help each other instead of pleading with an independent, non-publicly elected board of directors, who have no imperative to keep our best interest at the forefront of their decision making and we can undercut their power by not asking but by doing. By boycotting their services! Cab sharing can be enhanced and made very affordable and efficient if we choose to take a stand as a community. See Cabcorner.com. We can fight back with actions more effectively than pleading a case that has no fair arbitrator to objectively side with one group or the other. Less talk more action!
