The Paradox Of Roads And Bridges

america-in-distressWe are told that the building of roads and bridges will “stimulate” the economy. Isn’t that something…? In America’s new five and six county “regions,” only one or two cities in these regions are slated to receive “development” or growth dollars according to the Grand Visions of the regional councils of appointed leaders. These new multi-county regions, and in all 50 states, tell us that development will not include money to build or maintain roads except for those in the one or two target regional hubs or cities.

Now, these designated multi-regional, multi-county hubs also mandate pedestrian walkways and bicycle paths to very purposefully discourage automobile travel. In fact, all multi-regional cities who receive stimulus dollars mandate the building of pedestrian and bicycle paths. Let us add to this equation, the failing auto industry, governmental leans on the failing auto industry, and the fact that jobless Americans cannot afford to drive nor insure automobiles. Let us also include the road removals in America’s rural and wilderness areas, which, of course also makes impossible travel and mobility. And we know where the eco-community stands on our use of filthy automobiles.

The story continues …..
