Is the U.S. falling apart?

August 28, 2006

broken The American Society of Civil Engineers last year graded the nation “D” for its overall infrastructure conditions, estimating that it would take $1.6 trillion over five years to fix the problem.

The Seattle Times published an article citing the Alaskan pipeline failure, air traffic control problems in major cities like LA and power outages like the one that crippled the National Security Agency in Maryland. Read it – We’re falling apart at the seams.

Katrina was just a wake-up call. We can’t keep wasting billions of dollars on friends of those in power.

    We need to do something about the sewers too. Mobile Bay is too polluted on any given day to safely eat the fish from it, or to swim in it. Term limit. One term!
