    Hey, thanks for telling me what I think, I do appreciate it.

    You can pretty much set your watch by the fact that when some conservative starts in with this line of attack, it's because they can't find anything in the proposed legislation they can legitimately debate.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Re: Obama pushes broadband plan

    Dude, the GOPs in DC have lied about Obama lying for six straight years.
    The GOP of obstruction now insists on DEMs working with them and not obstructing as McConnell did for six years.

    Same playbook as last decade when McConnell whined for straight-up-and-down votes.
    Only to forget that little detail this decade setting all-time records for filibusters each of the last SIX years.

    I hope that discussion of the last SIX years has refreshed your memory of what actually happened the last SIX years .

    The GOP House of Hell No has shown how insufficient funding and the inability to pass their
    own damn Transportation bill has led to the shape our roads and bridges are in.

    Btw, when's the last time you traveled on said roads and bridges to be such an expert on them?

    And when does the Transportation trust fund go belly up and default ?

    Again, not so worried about this because the government has shown with our bridges and roads that they can't run and maintain infrastructure.



    You clearly don't know Kobie if you think he's a drooling fan of Obama. Don't you realize that even liberals have started to abandon him?

    Wait are you trying to argue that the infrastructure isn't in desperate need of repair?

    Is that what I said--NO--projection much?

    What are YOUR experiences on our roads and bridges throughout the Nation--are you afraid to answer the question?

    What is your knowledge on the Transportation Trust fund?
    And the Transportation Bill that the Hell NO caucus couldn't pass last year--oops--House leadership wouldn't put up their own bill for a vote.

    Nothing's changed so far this year, except both chambers are run by the dysfunctionals.
    The GOPea-brains can't even agree with each other, let alone DEMs .

    Since broad band is a monopoly in most markets what you are really saying is that Govt. should not prevent or stop monopolies. Again that is a primary job of Govt. No wonder you hate the Govt. you have no idea what its jobs are, and highways are certainly one of them superhighways included.

    I wasn't asking a loaded question Nimby, I was just wanting clarification. Second, my experiences are the same as yours I would assume. And third, the Transportation Trust fun is underfunded right now by TRILLIONS of dollars. That's what is estimated to fully repair our infrastructure. The reason this occurred was the same reason why there are so many unfunded liabilities throughout the government, and that is we keep trying to take from one sector of the government to pay for another. Look at lottery dollars that were earmaked for education as another example.

    I'll be honest, I don't know anything about Transportation Bill, so I'm not going to comment on it. All I will say is that anything that was proposed last year was doomed to failure as it was an election year. There's probably more to it that you are leaving out, but as I said, I don't pay that close attention to Congress to care. I do know that the answer isn't simply to throw more money at the problem, as that has been tried and failed.

    I know. It's hard to believe you are not talking to ten year olds when they post drivel like that. I think their brains are regressing from the strain.

    No, it will not, Cites, States and the Federal government will never go out of business for making bad choice because they can just tax and print money to hide/cover wasteful spreading, brides and cronyism.
