As you are sitting alongside the road waiting for the tow truck, remember to thank the tea party patriots and their goal to return the country to the good old days......

Methinks Bob's real name is "Harry Reid" and good ole dingy Harry is posting here since no one pays attention to him anywhere else. Harry's main drum beat these days is "The Republicans did it" and "The Tea Party is at fault". Sound familiar?????? What a bunch of buffoons they are.....

Sorry Edna, the AFP is a teabagger supported organization funded by your heroic Koch Bros....

When your roads go to hell, who did you plan on blaming?

The same people you blame there Bobby....everyone but those who are actually to blame....the government that pisses away your tax dollars on every whim but the actual thing they are supposed to spend the tax dollars on. And that includes the FEDS and the STATES and King George's GR

Before you start whining about the gov't pissing away your hard earned tax dollars, think about what the fact that the cost for almost everything has gone up since the last increase in the gas tax.

Explain to us how the cost to fill up your tank is the same as it was ten years ago, and how those plow trucks should be the same. Maybe you can explain how these potholes are fake and the roads are actually as smooth as silk.

No matter how badly you want things to return to 1890, it's not going to happen!

If you paid attention like most adults, you would see that the monies we have been paying for taxes were supposed to go to the roads. However, since you and others like you don't really care, you don't pay attention. The only thing you like to do is whine about Republicans and the Tea Party. Perhaps you could explain why you don't care how the Democrats piss away your tax dollars but you whine constantly about what the Republicans want to do with the tax dollars? Never mind, Bob, anyone who reads anything you post knows exactly where your head is...in the sand!

Lowly educated village idiots refuse to admit the facts.....

Roads need constant maintenance, and the costs to do that keep going up.

People who suffer from ostrich syndrome refuse to admit facts....the politicians are NOT spending the monies as they are supposed to, but rather spending the monies for their pet projects. Roads do need maintenance and the maintenance should be done all the time, not just when the potholes appear and when it can become a political football.

Well.........

I guess they shouldn't get one more penny to waste until you've been elected to that office!

How many times have you tried to get elected so you can stop that waste?

Told you this already Stupid but here goes again -- maybe it'll get through your pea bagger brain. Ask your bagger legislator or your uncle Nerd. Until you do that why don't you try shutting your big mouth Hot Sauce boy?

Hey Stupid you asked where your gas tax went and I told you what you need to do to find out. Contact your bagger legislator and uncle turd. You ought to do that because you don't seem to get it that the GOPhers have controlled both branches in Lansing for 15 of the last 23 years. What part of that don't you understand Hot Sauce boy? And are you the only one who pays taxes Stupid? You're a broken record - every other comment you make here has something to do with you whining and complaining about YOUR tax dollars being wasted or misappropriated or misspent to support everyone else or anyone who calls you out for your endless stupidity are dregs of humanity.

I described you and your twisted reality very well didn't I hot sauce boy?

Where do you think it went?

Do you know what it costs to repair or rebuild one mile of two lane road? Do you think that cost has gone up in the last decade or so?

More importantly, do you think the roads in this state are okay in there present condition?

The lowly educated are easily swayed into thinking that you can do the same amount of work for the same or less money. They ignore the fact that their electric bills have gone up in their three McMansions, that groceries don't cost the same as they did when Ronnie Raygun was in the White House, or that the price of fuel has tripled in just a few short years.

So you me what Edna refuses to..... How do you maintain the same amount of roads when your tax revenue doesn't cover nearly as much as it did the last time fuel taxes were raised?

Your ignorance shines once again. All I hear from your post is that you don't care how much you're taxed and where that money is going. Is that true? Yes or no. I know, you have know logic. You are just a poledancer with a couple costumes. You put them on only to take off while dancing in front of a bunch of horny men at your favorite men's club.

Since you forgot about Jennifer Grandholm and your alter ego, pippy, conveniently forgets anytime a Democrat runs anything the taxes AND prices go up, perhaps you would like to tell us where the monies went from the gas taxes which were raised and were supposed to go for the roads went??? Oh never mind, that would mean you and your alter ego would have to admit that someone other than a Republican screwed the taxpayers and everyone here knows you two won't admit that at any time.
