DOWNTOWN JAMAICA TRANSPORTATION STUDY PUBLIC MEETING A BIG FUCKING CRAP OF NOTHING

GOING…………….

I attended the 1st Downtown Jamaica Transportation Study back in 2015, I think it was, when there was so much talk about “revitalizing Jamaica” and another waste of money study at that time was asking for input from folks in Jamaica about what were problems, issues, etc. (WELL REALLY IT IS THE WHOLE FUCKING COMMUNITY, just throw a fucking rock and you will hit one of them).  Issues were brought up about too much traffic congestion, too many buses, too many livery cabs, too many illegal dollar vans, too many big trucks in the downtown area, trucks driving illegally on residential streets, the poisonous Royal Waste near residential homes, poor streets, bad sidewalks.

Fast forward to this past Monday Downtown Jamaica Transportation Study 2017 Redux and what issues were brought up:  too much traffic congestion, too many buses, too many livery cabs, too many illegal dollar vans, too many big trucks in the downtown area, trucks driving illegally on residential streets, the poisonous Royal Waste near residential homes, poor streets, bad sidewalks. THE SAME OLD SHIT and not a damn new thing was learned except that DOT sucks and have not done a damn thing since the last meeting in 2015, the powers that be do not give a flying fuck about Jamaica AND that very few people who live here actually care about what goes on in this community.

The  evening started out with some DOT female reading the information packet of this bullshit study that we had in our hands being projected on the wall. It would be perfect if you could not sleep at night, because that shit was FUCKING BORING. Then the DOT master of ceremonies, some mousy little guy,  commented at the beginning that it was good to see such a nice turnout, I wanted to say FUCKING WHERE. I have seen more people standing out in front of a Jamaica homeless shelter doing jack shit than at this meeting. The sparse crowd of maybe 40, consisted of about 7 DOT folks, a few 103rd precinct officers in and out, about 7-8 press folks, one councilman (I. Daneek Miller who came a little later into the program but actually brought up many good points), the president & chair of Community Board 12, and probably the only people who actually give a shit about this community, a handful of residents, several who were extremely vocal and laid it on the line about what a waste of time this was, what a piss ass poor study this was and the all too common, “We have been complaining for years about the issues in Jamaica and nothing ever gets done, we have heard all this before.” I must say I was surprised and happy to hear such long standing folks in the community like Community Board 12’s Yvonne Reddick, Adrienne Adams & Michelle Hall-Magnum and two other woman whose name I did not catch let loose. I guess after years and decades of SHIT being done, people do have a breaking point. Too bad there are not more of this in this community that is way too apathetic and just don’t give a shit.

For all the damn talk about “revitalizing Jamaica” and that other bullshit thing, the Jamaica Now Action Plan, there were no elected officials (besides Miller), no Melinda Katz, no Greater Jamaica Development (at least I don’t think), no so-called “movers or shakers”. I did think I saw fresh out of jail former assembly member William Scarborough without the bad toupee sitting for a bit, but then I made a comment about elected officials and then gave my take on the bullshit in Jamaica mostly about the truck situation and the idiots who allowed that fucking Tony Soprano outfit Royal Waste to be placed here and then when I looked, that asshole was nowhere to be seen.

When I first posted this meeting on my blog (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/monday-march-20-6pm-downtown-harvest-room-downtown-jamaica-transportation-study-public-meeting-yet-again-but-does-anything-change-or-just-more-smoke-blown-up-your-ass/), I made the comment about just more smoke blown up your ass and I was 100% right,  it was just more smoke being blown up your ass, but this time the smoke was as fucking stale as some of the items in a Jamaica deli.

WHAT A FUCKING WASTE OF TIME ABOUT A WHOLE LOT OF FUCKING NOTHING.

I am really having my doubts if Jamaica will ever turn around. If this meeting and this showing was any indication, Jamaica will turn around when down the road they have a memorial service for Melinda Katz when she crooks at 90 years old and they name a Queens Park after her and praise her with all the bullshit accolades that were dump on asshole Helen Marshall.

It will be interesting to hear the take from reporters from the various media outlets who were there Monday night. Christ if it was not for the few ladies who really let loose, I would have been more excited if I stayed home lying on the couch watching TV while scratching my balls. At least something would have been accomplished.

FUCKING GONE……………
