I think Minnesota has more miles of roads to maintain than almost any other
state. If and when we return some asphalt roads to gravel roads, it just
means that vehicles will have to go slower which will not to be such a bad
thing. As far a cycling is concerned, I NEVER see cyclists doing any riding
on rural roads. Cycling is best restricted to urban areas anyway.

As for raising taxes to pay for ever more and better roads, forget about it.
The states and counties are all going broke just like the federal
government. Everyone is already paying more than enough taxes. The solution
to all our problems is to stop the spending and to learn to get along on
less. What we spend on education is especially a boondoggle. Yea, tighten
the belt and welcome deprivation. It is good for the soul!

Hey anonymous sniper, you forgot to mention all the taxes paid by
illegal immigrants, which compensates for the services, since they do
not receive many of the benefits that citizens do.

Furthermore, if you dislike illegal immigration, blame the BUSINESS
COMMUNITY, since if undocumented workers were not *illegally* offered
jobs by BUSINESS OWNERS, they would not come to the US. Duh.

Nonsense. The upper classes and corporations are only paying a fraction
of what they did under the REPUBLICAN Eisenhower Administration (when
the middle classes were much better off).

The solution
to all our problems is to stop the spending and to learn to get along on
less. What we spend on education is especially a boondoggle. Yea, tighten
the belt and welcome deprivation. It is good for the soul!


The biggest boondoggle is what is spent on subsidizing Wall Street incomes.

I assume Iowa crooks are similar to Illinois:

and Wisconsin:

http://www.franklinnow.com/blogs/com.../98603114.html

A guy who wants use of the county roads is out of luck, pal.
Finagling pays better than paving.

We once had the occasional honest man:

"n 1926 Tom Pendergast, Mikes other son, supported Truman
for a four-year term as presiding judge of the county with
full authority over county roads, buildings, and taxes.
Although the Pendergast machine was strong, with his
characteristic bluntness, Truman told Pendergast he would
fire any man who failed to do an honest job. Finding the
road system a shambles, the courthouse in ruins, and tax
money in the pockets of Pendergast supporters, Truman began
wholesale firings. He appointed an independent road
commission, hired reputable workers, secured out-of-state
bank loans at low interest rates, and ended graft in
building contracts. He toured the country to find the
best-designed courthouse. He found it in Shreveport,
Louisiana, hired its architect, and floated a successful
bond issue to pay for a similar building in Kansas City. In
1929 Mike Pendergast died, and his two sons replaced him.
Trumans influence was enhanced, and he was reelected to a
second four-year term as presiding county judge."

from:

http://www.knowsouthernhistory.net/B.../Harry_Truman/

Honesty being an ever more rare attribute, I don't have much
hope. Great monies are levied but nothing works.

The secret "they" do not want you to know is that lower and middle class
wages are set by the market [1], and go up and down at about the same
rate as tax increases and cuts. Therefore, lower and middle class
worker end up with about the same after-tax income with tax cuts, but
reductions in government services. However, the upper class wage
earners greatly increase their incomes with tax cuts.

The second secret "they" do not want you to know is that the hypothesis
of upper class tax cuts stimulating the economy has been proven false in
practice. The extra upper class income is not used for capital
investments, since the shifting of the overall share of income to the
rich depresses demand for goods and services. Instead, the rich mostly
use the extra income in de-facto gambling on Wall Street, and similar
unproductive activities.

[1] Upper class wages are typically set by the "You scratch my back and
I'll scratch yours" system.
