Whiskey Tango Foxtrot . . .
They already have the turnpike. They’d have to shut that down to get enough riders to exceed 10 riders. Let me guess, the idea came from Democratic lawmakers from the Tulsa area who will then get a “ride for free” pass, since they are lawmakers.
I’m sorry to say that there are many Chamber of Commerce types and others who would call themselves Republicans who think they can plan an economy and spend other people’s money for the “public good”. I don’t know how we ever let politicians get away with this economic development nonsense that employs a bunch of bureaucratic planners to pick winners and losers in business. It’s a gussied up version of the Soviet 5-year plans, and it always fails! Let the free market work!
As for the high speed rail, it seems everybody wants one these days. I have also heard of a proposal for one between OKC and Dallas. The promoters claim that it will bring benefits to all the little towns in between. Huh? If the dang thing stops at every little town, then in what way is it high speed?
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.
