The Smart People in Government

You know, every time I hear Obama go on about how our infastructure is in desperate need of attention I have to scratch my head. Aren’t the roads being CONSTANTLY worked on?

Take a look at this map. You can play with the little symbols on the left to highlight different project; new project, total road closures, “major” projects for 2011. Michigan is COVERED with road projects. Metro Detroit is obliterated by the little symbols.

Obama’s “Job’s Bill” provides “Immediate investments in infrastructure and a bipartisan National Infrastructure Bank, modernizing our roads, rail, airports and waterways while putting hundreds of thousands of workers back on the job.”

I can only imagine what our roads will be like with MORE construction.

“Everyone here knows that we have badly decaying roads and bridges all over this country. Our highways are clogged with traffic.

Our roads are clogged with traffic because of the fucking CONSTRUCTION.

The President said it would issue loans “based on two criteria: how badly a construction project is needed and how much good it would do for the economy.”

I’ll tell you how much good it would do for the economy; zero. No one makes their economic decisions based on the quality of the road, unless there is construction on that road and then they will do whatever it takes TO AVOID the businesses on that road.
