falling apart.



ya know, i've posted about the flooding and water main issues in hoboken and the exploding steam pipe in midtown new york that created a 40-foot crater near grand central station. now an entire bridge in minneapolis collapsed during rush hour.

it's time to fix the decaying infrastructures of our cities. i'm just sayin'...

well, that would mean higher taxes, and we can't have that!

or we could stop flushing money down the toilet overseas, you know, uh... winning hearts and minds. [insert giant sucking noise here]

anyway, i would gladly pay taxes not to live in third world conditions, like having to boil my tap water and being afraid that the water that's up to my knees on my block every time it rains isn't raw sewage.

unfortunately, i think we need to see another massive structural failure in another major city (as if the new orleans levees and the minnesota bridge wasn't enough) before people really start panicking. i nominate that the building that houses the new york post or the washington times collapses on itself (with no one inside of course).

wow, that was totally ungrammatical but i'm too lazy to edit it.

yeah, but no taxes were raised to pay for our idiotic military adventure in iraq. that was all borrowed after taxes were cut ... for rich people, of course.
