Arlington's Yuppie Transportation System

Is Arlington's transportation system designed by and for Yups? What can we look forward to in 2018?

How about 100,000 to 200,000 additional parking spaces constructed in Arlington County over the next 20 years? Do the math - 200,000 divided by 26.5 square miles = 7,500 per square mile.

Think this is an exaggeration? The Yuppiecrat County Board and their Yupublican transportation, planning, and housing shills are on-track to approve the construction of 10,000 new parking spaces this year.

Arlington's transportation "system" is terrible. It's a system only a Yuppie Republican can love. Based on the Eisenhower-era political ideology that the owner of the biggest, fastest, most expensive auto, pickup, SUV, etc., is the coolest Republican on the block.

Look at the Pentagon City (Costco) redevelopment mess the County Board just approved. The smart developers had the idiotic Yuppie Republicrats rubber stamp the plans. Everyone elected and appointed in Arlington is a player in a developer charade. Only the Greenies don't go along

Everything I know about development I learned from Arlington County's Republicrats.

Put the blame where it belongs - Chris Zimmerman - a total hypocrite when it comes to transportation. He wants everyone to use public transportation but approves the construction of 5,000 - 10,000 additional parking spaces in Arlington every year. He voted to gentrify 100,000 people out of Arlington over the past 12 years. So these people now live in the outer suburbs and drive in-out of Arlington, including thousands of county-school employees. On top of that he uses tax revenue from motor vehicles to fund sports, recreation, and entertainment infrastructure. So that's why the streets aren't being repaved. He also appoints Republican community social controllers to the planning, housing, and transportation commissions to threaten and defame anyone who opposes Zimmerman's grand design - a gridlocked mess by 2018.

The REAL Urban Village Idiots are educated and otherwise intelligent Republicans like Jim Pebley and Nancy Hunt who have become total flunkies and dumb growth development shills for Zimmerman and his out-of-state developer buds in exchange for being appointed and re-appointed to the Planning Commission. They are obviously going to be outta here within 10 years, like their Dumb Growth Planning Commission mentor, Republicrat Carrie Johnson.
