Watch the VIDEO of Dingy Harry talking about this "momentous issue." Sounds like he is AVOIDING Obama's Jobs Bill. BTW, is it even a bill yet? Has it been put down in writing?

According to an ad on TV this AM, Chairman ObaMao has it posted online so everyone can read his Little Red Bill.

Ali-Bama and his Filthy Thieves need another $500 Billion or so to buy a new, improved, jobs lamp.

Most are Gaia cultists doing penance for global warming

What fools! Don't they realize they are exhaling more carbon dioxide then someone sitting at home watching reruns of Hogan's Hero's?

Ever heard of a “Road Diet”? The radicals who run my local community think putting in bike paths is a great way to get rid of cars.

The city has taken several four lane roads and turned the right lanes into bike lanes.

The commies call that a "Road Diet".

well, they can take that road diet and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. The nutjobs in Austin wanted to have one four lane street blocked for 12 or 15 blocks for bikes only. That would really have been good for the businesses. NOT!

Apparently Dirth Harry has lived too long in his Washington DC fancy hotel apartment.

He sure hasn’t been driving around his home state of Nevada.

State highways out here are gravel & streets on the map grid are dirt.

In a part of the nation- DC- where winter can be a really pain, riding bikes isn’t high on very many lists. Besides—how long would you have your bike in a city that has sich high crime rates???

Madison, Wisconsin, AKA MADISTAN, jumped at Federal Money to put in paved bike paths all over the city.

There is a sting attached, tho.

Such money from the Feds demands that maintenance must be current & that all paths MUST be kept open 24/7/365.

Since there is often a winter with fair amounts of snow in Madistan, such paths must be kept OPEN.

They are too narrow to plow with a truck, so they must use manual labor & snowblowers to keep them open all winter.

There is ALWAYS a Birkenstocker or 3 to call up & demand that such plowing be done immediately, all winter long.

The manual labor cost of such path clearing is far exceeding the cost of the path in the first place, which Madistan could have done with their own money & their own rules about winter clearing efforts.
