I predicted that the tone had been set for these wannabees when they flew air force one over the statue of liberty, it is hard to change one's stripes. This whole circus is a product of hair dressers acting as intermediaries for those seeking to extract theirs from the taxpayers in order to attain justice..
When will the senate start hearings on the video producer?
The big problem overall is politicians placing their reelection above all else and this administration have been the poster persons for this fiasco..
The oil spill caper is a feel good venture because "we have to do something". This closely follows the essence of this majority dominated group. Left leaning party line initiatatives such as Obamacare have inintended consequences. Legislation that stands the test of time is not done by party line.
We seem to be in a panic for a new facility but I would assume that we were more impacted during the last bubble, how did we make it then?.As we found out during the Affordable Housing debacle, the marketplace is the determining factor and local micromanaging visionaries are about as accurate as a broken clock..
The facts are all irrelevant to our do good legislature driven on by an army of left wing revolutionaries mostly far from Colorado. They must feel very proud indeed.
Over the course of history we have had leaders using the ploy that they have the inside track with God in order to control people. Eighty two virgins is a good example.
Today we have the same situation with the elites, growing weary from the spotted owl standbys have seized upon the holy grail of global warming er whatever the latest catchword is. We are told that just like God we are not to question as the science is settled. As a political tool this is absolutely briliant and with the media and academia in tow and sharing in the booty it has bulletproof credentials.It can be used for everything from soup to nuts in order to satisfy an ideology with little regard for unintended consequences possibly by design.
It is impotant that we know the truth but this circus certainly detracts from the mission.
On highway projects you will see the FASTER logo to show the benefit but other pet projects go unidentified..
Dems are out of their league on all this stuff but as long as they win the "mean well, caring and free stuff" vote they have a good shot at power, however unfortunate that might be.
Faster raised vehicle registration fees to finance road maintenance. It was a Dem idea and they had their agenda in mind regardless of the way the bill was sold. So FASTER is a smokescreen to get votes for everything but roads even if some money is used for this purpose in order to keep the faith. Some contractors have shown their support when they receive some of the funds but I look at the big picture. The highway trust fund has already had over 40% siphoned off to support public transportation that carries less than 3% of our traffic. Does $17,000,000,000 ring a bell? With decisions devoid of common sense it becomes obvious that there are those who consider tanking our economy as a means to an end. The decisions at our state legislature are all about the empathy factor, painting the opposition as bad guys and the big motive is votes..
The left has run amok with their ideas with little concern for unintended consequences. This could prove to be disastrous. Right now we are flirting with insanity and the rise in gun sales may not be a coincidence. When has it been smooth when one has to stop and pay the piper?
FASTER money went to finance our new hybrid busses in one instance. Over 40% of the HUTF has already been siphoned for these feel good deals. Does this mean that the parameters have been already set and we now can grab the rest for paths leading to and from hacky sack areas. This means that in our county we can plow up our roads and plant marijuana..Let the Dems have the majority and they make up for a century of waiting on.an overdue wish list.
