Doesn't it feel better to build bridges instead of walls?

We were supposed to have both, and they were to be beautiful and big, and Mexico was going to pay for the wall.  But Infrastructure week has finally arrived, bringing to fruition a promise that pre-dated this administration by a great many years. It's a good thing, as is the fact that it was accomplished in bipartisan fashion. That is the way things are supposed to happen.

A rarity we likely will not see for a long time to come.

The corporations needed better infrastructure.  Gotta get them employees to work on time.

Sounds pretty radical left socialist to me.

Corporations make all their money themselves without any outside assistance.

That's what capitalism means.

Haven't we been "just about" to do infrastructure for what - 20 years? 30?

Maryland can't seem to be arsed to build a new Bay Bridge until the old one collapses, probably with me under it or on it :rolleyes:

Exactly.  Talked about for 20 years. Finally came to fruition though the process is uglier than any of us would like to have seen. Just like Afghanistan.

And, they do so without utilizing any of the infrastructure created and maintained through tax revenue.

Amazing, innit?

He deserves some credit all right. Credit for being such a fuckup that he lost the election to a semi-retired train-rider during a R election wave.

Performance art by NY's finest performance artist, with the fundraising scam artist pardoned in the process. And who got taken to the cleaners? The morons who sent their money for the wall. That's an expensive way for a piece of shit to feel superior to another human being. 

 

That makeup tho....

A small percentage of the country, that controls too-large a percentage of the (R)epresentatives, found that building walls makes them feel superior.

And they found something in the Bible that confirms it for them.

I give Trump credit for Slovenia having a higher standard of living than the United States of America.

The U.S. doesn't even make the top 10 on anybodies list of anything related to it.

I can remember when I was a kid the U.S. was top of the pops by virtually every measure.

The Republicans are determined to turn back the clock to those days, not bring America up to snuff.

Imagine if it took that long to start the Interstate highway system or original power grid.

Back then we had two parties. Today we have four. Hard left(a few), Mainstream left, Mainstream Right (a few), Hard right.

Much harder to govern with four parties than two…..

Our hard-left people would hardly be able to fill up a bus or one airplane. Remember most of what counts as "left" here is center-right in the real world.

True. It’s a handful, roughly equivalent to the number of mainstream Republicans remaining.
