    Highways are just a segment of the transportation infrastructure which is just a segment of the overall infrastructure. Or to put it another way, if infrastructure were just highways, they'd just call it highways.

    Roads, highways, freeways, airports; those aren't corporate.

    As I said, the majority (i.e. most but not all) of our critical infrastructure is privately owned and operated.

    So you're saying that highways, freeways, bridges, airports, roads - all of that is privately owned and operated.

    Did you read anything about this before you interjected your absurd opinion into it?
    So people who work hard don't deserve their wealth, people that are nothing more then leeches on society deserve it because... it makes you feel good?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    By dumping Unions and outsourcing jobs you automatically get more bang for the buck because the Company knows that production and effectiveness id a must or Company two gets a shot at the job.

    Miracles can happen if you have a plan and stick to your convictions, making the case to the People forcefully.

    Will this work? You bet it will.

    What is more important? The whole population of a few hundred or thousand Union jobs and the thugs behind them?

    Sure they do. And we used to tax them WAY more than Dayton's proposed hike. They don't even compare. It's hardly unfair, as mentioned earlier, to ask people who use more and benefit more to pay a bit more.

    Yeah, everyone who isn't a millionaire is a leech. Forget the fact that millionaires can only exist because of these "leeches."

    Do you know anything at all about Sandy Springs? It is so far from average as to be hilarious. Just to give you an example, UPS and Rubbermaid among other Fortune 500 corporations are headquartered there. To suggest that other places should be more like Sandy Springs is hilarious.

    That is very interesting indeed. I'm concerned though about the fact that there's no pension for even safety officials. Th poverty level there is quite low, but I can't find mention of what it was before their instituted the outsourcing. I wonder how things work for the poor there are. Also, the video fails to mention their school system is also still government-controled.

    By the way, this is interesting: Sandy Springs city, Georgia - Income in the Past 12 Months (In 2007 Inflation-Adjusted Dollars)

    Over 20 % of Sandy Springs households bring in over 200k per year. So suggesting that more places should be like Sandy Springs is pretty silly.
