I guess they shouldn't have let Floor Humpin' Guy do it in the streets.

Too bad we have no one available to undertake simple infrastructure improvement jobs.

We should raise the rate some because we are more efficient and with this is a per unit tax that means we are generating less revenue

I do not believe you because I think someone is stealing the money.....


At least Ray didn't go on about an odometer tax.

SoupGuru: Too bad we have no one available to undertake simple infrastructure improvement jobs.


infrastructure improvements require taxes.  and the Owners (the richest 2% of Americans) have decided that they don't like paying taxes.   so no go.

besides, the Owners don't need bridges, police, roads, courts, military, mail, ect.    they have evolved beyond those things.

Why is NewsMax talking about this? They can't blame it on FartBumble. He's been asking for more infrastructure spending for years.

Also fta:
'"You might be right," Cavuto told LaHood. "There's definitely some infrastructure problems going on here because we're not fixing this stuff, but methinks that someone is absconding with a lot of that money."

"Well, I think that's a little ridiculous to say that," LaHood countered.'

It's like the whole interview was all...
Cavuto: "Derp"
LaHood: "That's stupid"
Cavuto: "Touché"

if weed ever becomes legal in all 50 states, the U.S. truly will become one big pothole.

I seem to recall hearing something a few years ago about "shovel-ready projects."

I wonder what ever happened to that?

Shovel ready projects turned out to be a myth because too much red tape.

In the 1880's, the potholes in Seattle were so bad that the city actually started to name them and put them on maps, so that visitors to the city would know to navigate around them. At the corner of Third and Jackson Street there was a pothole known as the Great Jackson Street Chuckhole - it was fourteen feet long, eleven feet wide, and eight and a half feet deep. We happen to know precisely how deep it was because one day a ten-year old boy named Joseph Bufoncio drowned in the Great Jackson Street Chuckhole, and his body was recovered from a depth of eight and a half feet. So I don't want to hear about how bad the potholes are in your town unless there are third graders literally drowning in your major intersections.
