    Default Infrastructure....

    What is wrong with Conservatives? All this "infrastructure" talk by the libtards, ragging on the GOP for blocking "jobs"....."Let's rebuild bridges, railroads, highways and put people to work"....Over and over, yet none of the Conservatives ever ask them WHERE we're going to get the STEEL and CONCRETE since the current EPA has shut down over half of the cement plants in the Country...The steel mills are, for the most part, already a thing of the past, so all this infrastructure talk would depend on Chinese materials.....Great, sending more American jobs, AND money overseas....All part of Soros' idea of spreading the wealth, and obama is neck deep in it....

    Ray, See my post regarding the SF-Bay Bridge. See where the SF-Bay bridge steel comes from. Look where the labor comes from that is building the bridge. To Liberals it isn't about BUILDING anything, it isn't about completing jobs to accomplish long term goals, bridges, tunnels, HS trains, pipelines, roads and overpasses...it's about posturing for "jobs" and who gets these jobs, it is also "monuments" to liberal politics. It is all about "look what we've done for you" "....see, your tax dollars really do work." If you look at what the total CA. budget is you will see that only about 1% is allocated to infastructure, 50% [by law] is allocated to edcuation and the remaining goes to social programs and administration. 20-25 years ago the CA. budget allocated 10-12% of the budget to infastructure. Liberal policies at it's finest.

    Anyway..she was giving a lecture on c-span and said a whopping 3% of that 1 trillion worth of stimulus money went to infrastructure. She also gave a rather complete explanation of zero and his plan....way scary shit....If 'We the People' don't manage to pull the plug on him in november he has every intention of wrecking the greatest country on the planet. I'm on the zero mailing list...last one i got was from Biden....almost begging for dollars. Zero has the beginnings of desperation going on....thought he had enough bank to buy his way in...He came up short on the massive amount of support he had the first time. Sheriff Joe probably has pink monogrammed panties ready for him. He played his only move in the holder/congress game and the leaky whitehouse deal was a fools move....National Security...isn't that like treason? I'm still trying to figure out why irun hasn't retaliated over worms crapping in their computers..
    I do know one thing, History is being made on a daily basis...The confrontation of the century. Good vs. Evil......
    When good prevails i know e will have enough sense to not allow china to be in the game. Even if we need to build steel mills and it costs twice as much keeping the money in country will have more benefit than any stimulus could. China has our prosperity, we been giving it to them with every junk product they sell us.
    Romney is a money making machine and he has no need for a printer to make it happen....he does need votes...the more the better.

    The Kenyan's stimulus money failed to produce as expected and much of what he proposed those funds for was infrastructure. The problem is that they somehow got funneled to his campaign contributors and those guys didn't know how to use a shovel so, by the clown's own admission, there were no shovel ready jobs to be found but he learned this after out-spending every single American president that preceded him.

    All the stimulus package did was to line the pockets of those that help get him elected. Union's and individuals pocketed billions, while it did nothing to help the economy. While I didn't believe in the stimulus (all it did in the 40's was to extend the depression) it would have helped a little if it went to targeted spending on construction. Instead it went to boondoggles like Pelosi's friend who got $300K for studying the marsh mouse in SF and another friend that received a grant to study shrimp on a treadmill, and don't forget the grant to study alcohol on gay men in gay bars in of all places Brazil! Total waste of billions and billions of dollars.

    Yup, that makes it lose-lose for Rs. The tiny amt that is supposed to go for building stuff is really used pay for Dem campaigns.
