As widely reported on local Boston television news a few days ago, one of the main arteries into the City of Boston (the state Capitol of Massachusetts) began to visibly crumble, develop a gaping hole, and was then closed to traffic during Friday morning rush-hour. Meanwhile, the governor of Massachusetts was traveling at taxpayer expense to the countries of Israel and the United Kingdom in supposed pursuit of job creation for the State of Massachusetts.
I mean, what is going on here? Are our elected officials in denial or are they merely stupid? The infrastructure is crumbling throughout the nation – even at their front door – and the politicians still claim to be unaware of how to create jobs?
REBUILD OUR NATION’S CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE!!! Believe me, such an effort would create alot of jobs!! (Have the contracts already been let to this end?)
It typically appears that our elected officials are either too self-serving, or they are not really concerned for the nation’s welfare, or they are completely inept!
As such: It seems the time is at hand to REPEAL THE ELEVENTH (11th) AMENDMENT TO THE U.S. FEDERAL CONSTITUTION and make our governments liable for their neglect and incompetence – either that, or maybe I will have to run for office myself (but with no political machine to back me, well….anyway).
As I have repeatedly blogged: REBUILD OUR NATION’S CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE!!!

P.S. By the way, it always appeared to me the U.K. ‘fat-cats’ didn’t care much to employ their own workers in their nation. I don’t really understand why anyone would think those ‘fat-cats’ would really care one-way-or-the-other about employing American workers in the U.S. (Sorry, I had to add this last thought, too!)
