A bridge too far has a tragic entry into the history books . . . And I’m sure it’s going to sound familiar as it did with Katrina . . . We hadn’t listened then, and we probably didn’t now either.
I wonder if Iraq had never happened would we have fixed what needed fixing . . . I bet no.
There are so many things that we have grown dependant on and have failed to rebuild . . . And were more concerned with HDTV than healthcare in our nation.
Dollars only go so far and were adding too many public projects to meager coffers, thinking I don’t know what . . . As if the money is an endless stream. But it’s finite, there is a point adding just one more will break any system.
The power grid for one needs updating, the rail system, highways and byways. And we don’t have any bullet trains, schools need maintenance. And still we build more. We build huge libraries and have to ask for money for books in a referendum.
And still people go hunger in our great democracy. Our people are turned away from medical services without any insurance, college is only for the affluent, and retirement becomes a soup kitchen or a food pantry on a fixed income.
And we say, we don’t want to give handouts . . . But is the money being spent wisely? And everyday we hear of the corruption in Washington, the last Republican Ted Stevens . . . Didn’t he get money for a bridge to no where? And before that the Democratic Leader in the senate, he was involved in a somewhat fishy land deal. Whatever happened to that?
And then we have the administration and their cronies and the missing billions in Iraq . . . When are we going to tell them enough?
