So Seattle Didn’t Get A Basketball Team…Big Deal

So Seattle didn’t get its basketball team, big deal!  To me having a pro team should be low on the priority list of things for Seattle.   It’s just not something that is needed.  Seattle needs funding for its financially sagging public bus transportation service called Metro.   Why not petition to get the 75 million dollars needed to keep Metro Transit running so there is no danger of reducing or cutting out bus services altogether!  And when I mean bus routes being cut or reduced I don’t mean just a few, the bus routes are numerous.  When I saw a rider alert at a local transit center the routes in danger of being cut were so many it looked like an extremely long math problem.  Row upon row of routes.   And Seattle is worried getting a stupid basketball team from Sacremento?  Give me a F**king break will you!   It must be nice to have millions upon millions of dollars all ready to spend on a stupid team.   Nice to see that the city has its priorities in place…..NOT!   Then your watching TV & you’ll see all these folks to include those in the news media whining about not obtaining this team for Seattle.   I for one am glad that the team didn’t come to Seattle.   For me Seattle has better things to worry about like the financial deficit which this town can’t seem to get out of , I mean 75 million dollars to fund the public transportation system.  How did it get so bad?   I’ll tell you its because the city can’t manage its money choosing to invest millions for an over the top art deco public library that wasn’t necessary, over extending itself by building a light rail which doesn’t even go all over the city but only runs from the airport to downtown!   All this city is good for is pure ego!  But hey it could be worse.   I could be living in Detroit.   Way to go Seattle 😦

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
