RFTA has new meaning

Surveillance cameras are incompatible with a free society. RFTA, the local bus system, is rolling out buses with surveillance cameras installed to monitor riders. Ergo, RFTA doesn’t care about your rights, freedoms or privacy.

I seriously doubt that the RFTA board members ever read Article IV prior to voting in favor of surveillance cameras. That’s the way tyrants operate.

I propose that every time you see the letters “RFTA,” think of it as “Roaring Fork Tyranny Association.” Rise up and fight the cameras, or sit back in your comfortable bus seat and sink into a pathetic subservience.
