Future debt is in the increase to say the toll charges. Debt is not paid off any more than when one rents. In business there is a break even point with properties. Then they become losses and are allow to fall into disrepair. Called bleeding the property. Just as those that rent our infrastructures will do when they reach the point of parody. Lease up and infrastructure repairs falls to the taxpayer. Roadway will then be assessed to its potential earnings of what the raised service cost was. Note; Profit of the private industry is added into the assessment, thus once again raising taxes for the infrastructure they have already paid for ,Plus the profits that were derived will be maintained . Taxpayer paid once, twice, thrice for the same infrastructure and the profits that were obtained by the private enterprise is theirs to keep and reinvest.
Another example; Mineral rights are leased out to private enterprises. Now the majority of times lease is not put up for auction, which has proven to be most effective for returns to taxpayers. Common practice its behind closed doors with one bid. Bid turns out to be say $100,000,000 for a $500 Billion transaction. Less infrastructure to recoup minerals and profits go to the leaser of say $20 Billion! Land returned to govt. in distress and taxpayers pay for the clean up and restoration both in monetary and health. If you are interested in a more in depth knowledge of these lease/rent scenarios I can refer you to Book recently written by Nobel Economic writer and author.

You are way to long winded my friend. What brings you here in my city with all of this???Besides this thread is way out dated, go get a life.

No Bernard we do not agree, not on anything. Take your so called intellect and shove it where the sun dosen't shine. I merely pointed out that you claimed ownership, something you denied my right to do, and now you want to rationalize or whatever you want to call it. AND I DON'T CARE! Stinking Commie Puke.

I have known Perry for what he really is for years, and it was his crackpot wife Annita that lied and said that God told her to tell him to run for president. Unfortunatly he still doesn't have a clue.

Well, my name comes from a song by Yael Naim and yours comes from a song by Jimmy Dean. They are both great songs, but I guess you didn't know mine because it is from THIS century. LOL

there are issues in Texas that Rick Perry is familiar with and can resolve: Such as fighting corruption within the courts and innocent people wrongly sent to death row on no evidence and even having DNA clearing them. These problems take many terms to correct and are complicated. Perry has the knowledge and experience as governor about issues Texas needs to acknowledge and prioritize.
Great Job, Perry.

I fully agree he is the man to do the job.

And yet, here you are my dear friend. Your city? Think there are those that disagree with your claim. Try to go further out than that coral you keep running around in circles.

My, My Tex is all fluster. When did I claim ownership? Link, link. Your so funny at times. I denied your ownership? Link, link. I was merely stating your choice of words were incorrect. Now am I supposed to emulate the ranting of one who is all a flustered. Loses the ability to converse without being dysfunctional . Think Not. Maybe some day you will mature. Who knows..?

Bernard you must suffer from selective memory, or did you forget about the solar panels, and electric car you bought and paid for with cash? Do you own them or are you merely leasing them from the government? And I am not flustered, merely tire of your commie bullshit.
