Yes, I see that....

If this is about asian carp, then I have a solution to that which is fairly simple. Man knows how to kill a species off in no time at all, just put a bounty on it. If the government were to pay 50 cents per carp people would flock to the Mississippi river and clean the carp out once and for all. I could even see people living quite handsomely for some time on just this alone.

I completely understand your delusion dilemma. The wrong title has been up for over five hours.

My bad...; I may have the Title police distracted and involved in reading the Constitution.

As for the bounty idea, it has a fatal flaw. Not only would it be more effective and cost less, once the program is successful it can be cancelled. That's a big no no in DC.

Sorry about that. I was amending it when you posted.

one of my issues posting at work, is having to step away before my thoughts are completely typed in. Or my spelling is corrected.

Sorry to have set your hat a bit sideways.

If Trump voters suffer his cuts, and they will, oh well.

They were warned, but you know, buttery males.

At the risk of repeating myself,,,; I will repeat myself.

Post #2 in this thread:
From the perspective of a lefty, I can understand how such news would be taken. But most who voted for Trump did so because they understand his message that the Federal Government is not the source of our nation's wealth or power. It has simply absorbed them from the people.

As Ronney Reagan so famously advised," I'm from the government and here to help." is not good news for a taxpayer. He went on to say "the Government IS the problem." And in most every case, he was right.

Trump supporters didn't vote for more freebies. I would suggest, most, who expect freebies from the gubmit, voted for the other guy
.


Meanwhile this thread, despite the misleading title, is about Asian Carp. Try and keep up.
What, if any, are you thoughts on that?

Trump's first economic promise to the American people as their next president, surprisingly enough, focused on infrastructure revitalization.

"We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals," Trump said. "We're going to rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none. And we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it."

Hmm so they didn't vote for this?

Also Trump cut 500 million from the DOTs road building program

Are you suggesting Trump has cancelled these projects?

A Foolish guess dude. You are so used to the "normal spend doogle mentality of DC that,,,; you really don't get the plan

Cut the deficit
Get out of the way of business growth
Fund projects outside of government funding (because we be broke dude!)
Set goals and do what it takes to meet them instead if finding excuses and blame for failure.


I would suggest the naysayers stop impeding the progress and watch what happens.



Except you. Go right ahead and bitch

Everyone should have a hobby

Silly Wabbit The President only makes a budget proposal to Congress. And his budget proposal does want to cut 500 million from road building.

Oh BTW:

The American Society of Civil Engineers estimates the U.S. needs to invest $3.6 trillion into its national infrastructure by 2020 just to get the country up to where it theoretically should be given its size and scope.

And few doubt that infrastructural investments would be an economic boon to the U.S. A 2014 Economic Policy Institute policy paper suggests an $18 billion annual investment in infrastructure projects would "yield a $29 billion increase in [gross domestic product] and 216,000 net new jobs by the end of the first year."

Listen Elmer Fudd,,, This rabbit looks at the whole picture.

$500 million is pocket change. Last year's Dept of Transportation budget was $94.7 Billion. Assuming this is out of that number, this is less than one percent of that. Or is it $500 million of Obama's forecasted budget for 2017 to which you refer? Ya'll pulled this same crap when the GOP cut back the increases to the education budget under Bush.



From WIKI;
The President’s Budget provides a total of $94.7 billion in discretionary and mandatory funding in 2016 for the Department of Transportation to support infrastructure projects critical for long-term growth; improve America's roads, bridges, transit systems, railways, and aviation systems; enhance safety; spur job creation; and improve the way federal dollars are spent.
After all you did quote the Civil engineer's estimates which are based on Obama's slush fund budget projection to 2020. He had over $416 billion projected for those shovel ready projects.


President Trump was elected on his campaign promise to stop the burgoing waste and spending of Washington DC. Those who voted for him not only get that, it is what they wanted. So again I ask Elmer Fudd, who ccouldn't hit the broad side of a barn whilst standing inside much wess ah big white wabbit,Why should they be disappointed.

He is keeping a campaign promise.
And
Building infrastructure with smart money management.

I know that is a strange concept out of DC, and stranger still to a Progressive, but see if you can rub the two thoughts together and get the picture.

Moss added that a strong economy stems from a view that infrastructure is a “bipartisan investment.”

“Maritime, aviation, rail networks and highways all contribute to U.S. productivity, and it’s surprising to see cuts to the infrastructure budget instead of adding to it. Transit is essential to the country’s well-being -- nowhere is that more apparent than in D.C., where the mass transit has suffered for decades,” he said.

He is not keeping his infrastructure promise as of now. So go ahead follow him. Tune in on your microwave for the latest updates.
