Leftist dementia: Blaming Bush & GOP for Minneapolis Bridge Collapse
When I heard the news late Wednesday afternoon PT about the Minnesota Interstate 35W bridge collapse, after the initial shock and sadness for the victims, one of my first thoughts was that the Left would try to score points and blame the tragedy on President Bush and the Republicans.
We spend billions in IraqWhile we fall apart at home.We have been warnedby engineers that our nation's infrastructure is in dire need of repair and upgrade.Who needs terrorism when the inept GOP runs our nation into the ground. The "terrorists" can just sit back and watch as our nation falls apart.Mission Accomplished.No one has the balls to take this onEvery week there's a new national tragedy...tainted food, nutcases with automatic weapons, structural damage to cities, hospital patients dropped on the streets, dysfuctional transportation system, poorly cared for vets, trashed education system, national disasters from global warming. I am waiting for a national figure with the balls to call these warning signs what they are: Republican disdain for and neglect of government oversight,venality, insensitivity to human suffering, tax breaks for rich folks, blatant government incompetence, dirty politics, and bleeding our resources in an immoral f-----k war.God damn rightyou want services, you have to PAY FOR THEM.That includes roads, electric grid, public transportation, airports, air traffic control, police, firemen, schools, colleges, and last AND least, military.NO corporation is going to do those things. THERE'S NO PROFIT IN IT. And there SHOULDN'T be.You can't run a 21st century country with a 19th century infrastructure. Or tax structure. Or 19th century thinking.Scratch that - 16th century thinking.It is a terrorist attack by Republican budgetcuttersI'm watching this now on OlbermannI can't help thinking that the Bush tax cuts and corruption has contributed to this. Our country is falling apart, but Bush doesn't care as long as he cronies get to make money.
More Republican 'Family Values'?Move along, nothing to see here folks.Just another case of people paying with their lives, so the rich can keep "their hard earned money".Just move along.
"I'm feeling a little down about our bridge collapsing with many of my fellow humans on it, and I can't help but feel the desire to go straight for the money that should have been used on my cities' federally funded, interstate highway infrastructure by re-appropriating it directly from Blackwater and Haliburton."
This is what happens when militarists run thingsThe Military and all it's attendant fraud and waste soaks up the lion's share of the federal government's money.Next to nothing is left for the civilian infrastructure and it's maintenance.
