Hmm...several months ago the VP said money spent in Iraq was more important than "special interest pork" projects at home. Tucker Carlson told us that we had the "best infrastructure" of any "civilized nation." Yesterday I drove on the American Legion here on the Capital Beltway and saw engineers making all kinds of studies and measurements. Oh God forbid it falls into the Potomac. Quell embarassment. And forget mass transit, hydrogen cars, mag-lev, true urban planning. That's for commies and faggot grad students and sci fi authors.
Well, a reminder of reality fell into the Mississippi River tonight during rush hour. Perhaps instead of lining Betchel's pockets along with countless other contractors in Baghdad, Doha, Bahrain et al...can we get some help on Main Street. Or I-35? Huh Mr. President? Bet there are bridges even in screw mass transit Texas that need fixin'
P.S. One more hen's scratching at the coop. Millions of Fisher-Price/Mattel toys for babies, laden with LEAD recalled. Where are they made? Why, the communist ATM machine for thousands of American CEOs with stock options, private equity and hedge fund captains, dickheads hoping to break unions--China. More human rights violations than Hugo Chavez. More pollution than Eastern Europe. But hey, moneys to be made and that means the GOP, big business and even the neo-cons love the place. Maybe John Roberts was sucking on a Big Bird Fisher Price crib mobile over the weekend. Maybe it will wake HIS ass up. Unlikely, but keep sucking anyway, Mr. Chief "Justice." Hand some toys out in the White House if you get a chance...
Yeah, I'm pissed off.
