The infrastructure is falling apart and all your politicians worry about is giving your tax dollars to Israel and Afreaka. Why is that do you suppose? Join the revolt. Second Vermont Republic.

I travel this road once a week or so - the drivers around there are animals - cutting in and out of funeral processions

I bet that pick-up truck a few month's back which ended up on the track's at that crossing or the lightening strikes in the area on Sunday had something to do with the " electronic glitch" with the gates.
