    the only one playing "games" and not being serious is the one who resorts to the most fallacies.

    Why did you capitalize "only" and "body"? Are these proper names of someone that you are referring to?
    Have you read our own Constitution?

    You may be resorting to a fallacy of composition.

    A perpetual deadlock in Congress has resulted in eight extensions of the national transportation bill, causing roads to crumble, bridges to fall, and transit to break down.

    That is bull****, the gasoline taxes have been put into the general fund for decades and spent on everything other than the roads which is what happens when money goes into the general fund. You however buy what you are told from the left and your answer is always throw more money at the problem without finding out where the allocated money went in the first place

    I think there are just too many uniformed people, that think they know what they are talking about. They are just manipulated by the left, lead around by the nose, and think they are informed. They are critical to the success of the left in this country. Without the "useful idiot" the left would not be able to do so much damage. It's a shame to see what is happening to this country, and to see foolish people abused and they don't even know what is happening.

    You need to cite sources that support your contention, otherwise you are as serious as any appeal to ignorance.

    Revenue for the Highway Trust Fund is derived almost entirely from federal gas taxes and distributed to all 50 states.

    LOL, the budget of the United States is my source and that is something you have never looked at. Yes, there are dollars distributed from the govt. to the states, how much distributed vs how much taken in from gasoline taxes? This is just another topic you know nothing about.

    Fortunately for me, I don't need to appeal to ignorance while claiming i am serious about the topic under discussion.

    Yes and what part of my statement disagrees with that? Do you have any idea how much of your gasoline is taxed at a federal, state, and local level all allocated to infrastructure repair? Why don't you find out how much was collected in Federal Excise taxes by state and how much came back to those states from the Federal Govt. You might just learn something and stop looking foolish
