    Which is how LBJ got to be Veep. Electoral balance is nice, but it was also important to have someone who knew how to twist a few arms once in office.

    No really... So? You can roll back spending without rolling back civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, technology, workplace safety regulation or any knowledge gained since.

    Not to side track on the autobahn yet the autobahn was long before Nazi Germany. However evil Hitler was ... german engineering of highways was cutting edge from beginning to end.

    AVUS and the World's First Autobahn
    But the Cologne-Bonn superhighway was not the world's or Europe's first superhighway. The credit for that goes not to Hitler but to Benito Mussolini. The 80-mile autostrada from Milan (Mailand) to Varese was the world's first limited-access motorway. Designed and developed by Piero Puricelli, the Italian autostrada opened to traffic in 1924. Unlike the later autobahn, the Milan-Varese expressway was a toll road and did not have divided lanes until years later.

    But the earliest precursor of the autobahn was German. Construction of the "intersection-free" AVUS (Automobil-Verkehrs- und Übungsstraße) began in Berlin in 1912. Not fully completed until 1921, the AVUS was essentially a closed race and test track. The industrialist Hugo Stinnes later purchased the roadway and expanded it to four lanes running a distance of almost 20 km (12 mi). Only much later did the AVUS connect with Berlin's public road network. Today it is part of the A115 autobahn

    Let's just make sure we don't start throwing money at infrastructure projects for the sake of throwing money at infrastructure projects. There was a strong pre-existing need for an interstate highway. There is no need for a high-speed rail or another bridge to nowhere.

    I was thinking more along the line or repairing our crumbling infrastructure and RE instead of finite resources.

    How about modernizing and fixing what we have? Is that off limits too?

    The way the stimulus is being used in my city to repair our crumbling infrastructure is that they're putting big tin green fish, with holes in them, along the freeways. They also have some tin birds and on some freeway islands they've constructed big tin elk and other strange animals. They're also painting the concrete a light brown color and installing no-jump metal panels on one side only of raised walkways. Murals are probably on the way.
