Re: Please, explain to me,

No SS is not bankrupt. The US government has borrow over 2 trillion from SS.  You have been borrowing that instead of paying for more government than you can afford.

 

All the states are not tolling roads. You would have to look pretty hard to find a toll road in Iowa. Most toll roads are built with the intent that consumers will pay for them. Once the tolls are in place they are addicted to them to pay mainatinence or existing roads.

Re: Please, explain to me,

Here is a list of states that toll roads within their borders and how many.  If you would look at where they are, you would find that most are in and around large cities and are basically used as easing traffic tools.

 

35 -- FLORIDA
30 -- NEW JERSEY
27 -- NEW YORK
22 -- PENNSYLVANIA
15 -- CALIFORNIA
14 -- TEXAS
10 -- OKLAHOMA
9 -- VIRGINIA
7 -- MARYLAND
6 -- ILLINOIS
5 -- MICHIGAN
4 -- MASSACHUSETTS
3 -- DELAWARE
3 -- NEW HAMPSHIRE
2 -- COLORADO
2 -- INDIANA
2 -- LOUISANA
2 -- SOUTH CAROLINA
2 -- WEST VIRGINIA
1 -- ALABAMA
1 -- ARKANSAS
1 -- GEORGIA
1 -- KANSAS
1 -- MAINE
1 -- OHIO
1 -- RHODE ISLAND
1 -- UTAH
1 -- WASHINGTON

 The only state that I have been in that had whole sections of an interstate in a toll is OK.  Probably more but I don't know of them.

Re: Please, explain to me,

easing traffic my "donkey" they are honey holes for money. it costs $80 to cross the gw bridge into nyc with a semi truck.last time i was in ok it cost 28 to go from mo line to tulsa. the one around austin tx is something like 60 cents per mile. that's hard to pay when the freight only pays $1.35

Re: Please, explain to me,

That's strange. I just went through there and the sign said $16.50 for class 5. Top charge was $20 cash a little lower with Pike Pass.

Re: Please, explain to me,

And I am confident all that will change when the repubs get in and of course it happened overnight when Obama took over. Yeah sure comrade.  It might be something like that but you have flourished the truth with lies on previous occasions so I will let this one go through to the keeper too.

Of course we don't want you to be successful....socialism doesn't work.....name one time it has.


That's a bit rich comrade when you all enjoy it indirectly in so many ways. Take all the subsidies farmers get for instance. If you are genuine about stopping creeping socialism, all the repig voting farmers should stop getting it and hand it all back. But no. I can hear the groans of being exceptional and they deserve it. Hypocrites is the first word which comes to mind but tell me it isn't so.

Then some poor wretch in a slum gets a few bucks to survive and you call him a parasite on the country!!!! Have you no conscience.

Gouch, please explain how socialised crop insurance strengthens the country and is good for society. I never mentioned crop insurance strengthens the country. I am on about how all the farmers receive subsidies of some sort from the taxpayers yet bellow about the evils of socialism.  They are hypocrites.


 


Socialism always fails. It is evil. It enslaves one segment of the population to another. It is designed so those who opt out carry an even larger percentage of the load.


Well.  Thank you for your advice comrade.  I am just a little puzzled how you say it always fails when the two countries, i.e. China and Russia, that your country is afraid of, are both communist.  Rumour has it that many dollars are borrowed from China and indirectly from Russia.  So much for the failure you speak of.

Funny the two countries with the largest loss of human life from starvation and murder by government in the 20th century is your example of success stories.

Re: Please, explain to me,

"and on and on and on"......that's the problem, how much socialism is enough....how much is too much or do you think everything should be run by the goverment.  I say we're full up.   Is that the way you take your medication....if a little is good, a lot must be great.?  That would explain alot about you lefties.
