whom side they own

Sometimes I wonder whom side they own, you know government and politrixters. It seems that it is not on the side of logic, the public hard work, and the community. The priority has to be elsewhere. After the collapsing of that bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota it dawned on me that the general infrastructure of this country, with the exception of a few cities like Atlanta, do not regularly work on highways, add runways, or replace water lines in the city.

Most cities I travel too in the states, including my home town of Memphis have poor highway systems and such makes me think that the rest of the infrastructure, needs serious examination too. From Raliegh, to Orlando, to DC even, the highways systms, if any indication of other systems, are on the surface delpidated and antiquated.

In Minnsota for example, two reports published since talked about "the bridge's deck truss system” having “many poor fatigue details on the main truss and the floor truss system" but that is beside th point. The point is that we as Americans, especialy the political class are more focused on the present and quick fixes and are no far thinking anymore as , let us say Africans, East Indians and the Chinesee. We fail to think long term and lean towards “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” instead of “let’s make some new main.”



Then there was before this, the c, which was lauded as an “engineering marvel”. Which opened 13 January 2006 at a staggering cost of $14.6 billion. Noted problems of this edifice included thousands of leaks in the ceiling and wall fissures and A fatal accident on July 11, 2006 where part of the ceiling collapsed connecting I-90 to the Ted Williams Tunnel.

The problem outside of the aforemention could be that these things are controlled by quasi-governmental agiences of “Authorities” or “Systems’”that are not accountable t the general public. Like the the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority.

Even still, we will see a lot more problems, it was only a mater of time given that 2005 was the 50th anniversary of the creation of the U.S. Interstate Highway System. So that means it’s old as fuck, and just imagine the dams and yes, the bridges. But hat can one expect, when the folk yell vote for and place in office prefer to build shit in Iraq that are blown up after we finish, not even talk about such as a campaign issue, or worse with folks from Katrina still with nothing two years latter. Glad I know America is a republic and not a democracy and landowners make decision. Boy am I thankful for my 11-acres. Maybe something good can come of this, maybe; vast improvements to infrastructure, Prince starting a scholarshop fund for the children of victims - showing these new artist what civil responsibility is (not making it rain in a strip club).
