Real News. Real Funny.
kittyhas1000legs: CDOT (Colorado DOT) seems to be pretty good at upkeep. Then again, if something catastrophic happens on I-70 it'll hurt the state's economy pretty well.I-70 is quite the feat of engineering, especially through Glenwood Canyon:[img.fark.net image 439x292][img.fark.net image 850x478]Just watch out for rocks and boulders from above.

I've never seen that before. Nice.Thanks for sharing.
Percise1: Whole lotta red states look retarded and their sheit's all farked up.Kommiefornia doesn't seem to be doing too bad even after spending 55 billion on illegal immigrants. Funny how that worked out, Republitards!/how am I doing?
Tom_Slick: Finally an issue both parties are at fault for, no politician wants to rebuild infrastructure they want grandiose ribbon cuttings. Most of the public is too stupid to know that bridge needs to be rebuilt they just see inconvenience of the construction zone and say "it was fine when I drove over it last month."This has been ignored for far too long.
Notabunny: I like round numbers, so I don't think we should do anything until we reach 100,000
W_Scarlet: If elected President, it would be my plan to push policy to tax large corporations [As defined by an annual profit margin of over 1 million USD, and articles of incorporation on file.] that rely on truck-based shipping for their profit margins [Fed Ex, UPS, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, Macys, Swift, Con-Way, so on and so forth.] with that money specifically marked to maintain interstate highways, and bridges specifically in the interstate highway network, and establish funding to build at least two major arteries of high speed rail, Los Angeles to New York, and Houston to Chicago.I would also push policy to tax media networks, such as cable broadcast, internet service providers, telecommunications companies and again, large corporations that rely on internet communication for media streaming to begin the huge task of upgrading our internet infrastructure.Oh and health care? How about taxing the profits of pharmaceutical corporations, and any hospital with 500k or more in profit annually, with those funds going specifically to universal preventative and catastrophic emergency care? I mean, yeah, it sucks for people who get cancer, but at least you can go get a check up, or get someone to stop the bleeding, right?... Yeah. Vote for me. It'll never happen, but boy, wouldn't it just make the news a little more interesting to hear an actual plan for a change? [Granted, a pretty insane plan that would piss a lot of people off, divide congress totally, and goes against the almighty theory of trickle down economics...]
Dafatone: Necessary infrastructure repair, or as it was derided and done away with in Congress, pork.
