The worst politician money can buy.

I seem to recall a certain phrase from a couple of years ago... something about a “Culture of Corruption”.

The real unemployment rate is 16.4%. Like with snow ruining the global warming hoax, you can’t hide that fact.

Assuming the middle of the estimate = nominally $4 Billion to build this thing... equals about $22 million PER MILE.

I can look at my window and see the end results of an I-10 expansion that's taken the better part of 8 years, plus years more for engineering and other things.

That was about $150 million per mile, through a major city, including tearing up every inch of existing freeway, demolishing existing overpasses and railroad track right-of-ways. The freeway is about 10-12 lanes wide in some places, not including the feeder roads that are each 3 lanes wide.

They can't build this thing through the most godforsaken desert in California for less than $22 million per mile. That's crazy.

Another example of why the 17th Amendment MUST be repealed and Article 1, Section 3 of the US Constitution MUST be reinstated.

State Legislatures are supposed to choose the Senators from their State. This way, the Senators owe EVERYTHING to their State and cannot easily be bought by lobbyists, crooks, or the criminally insane.

WE MUST . . . GET THE 17TH AMENDMENT . . . REPEALED.

If the Founding Fathers’ way was good enough from 1787 until 1913, it’s good enough now.

Sig is a crooked son of a bitch, along with Billy Vasiliades. They are sellouts to the Las Vegas Convention Authority.
