How can they convert a freeway into a tollway? I thought there was a law in California that says they can't convert a existing roadway into a tool way. The roadway was already paid for by our tax dollars. Now the rich get to pay to pass all the traffic. This is a sad day for California!

Now that we are getting our Tolls, I think we have arrived. Not a problem; it is time that we pay for our Freeways....oops, no longer can call it FREE. Folks the time has come, whether you like it or not-to pay as go. Look on the bright side, everyone who drives the HWY will have to pay....I don't think they will come up with vouchers? California need the money, so now lets get excited about paying as we go.

We've already PAID for our freeways through our tax dollars and the state gas tax we pay on every gallon of gas we buy, moron!

What a sweet deal for some political ally.$210 million to put up a few transponder readers and cameras to catch the cheaters. How can I get that contract?

Back to the topic, I find it quite amusing that our tax money goes to bail out greedy crooked corporations, and our taxes that are supposed to pave the road for bridges and roads are given to the companies who lobby the most to do the building of the infrastructure, and then after all that is said and done, we pay for it again with tolls. What a bunch of crap, this is the united states of corruption.
Yeah, with B.O. at the helm....
hold on to your hats! Open your mouth WIDE for your big, steamy helping of socialism. Yummy..

To add insult to injury, they are using your other tax money to pay for setting it up!

"The contract states the Transportation Department will provide $210 million to pay for the new toll collection equipment,"

Great! They steal our money, then use it to set up a scheme to steal our FREEways, and even more money from us.
This has federal blackmail written all over it.

The more I live in the U.S. and in California, go to work everyday as a legal worker who pays taxes, gets overcharged for health insurance & wait in line at hospitals with county-assisted medical or whatever it is with non-English speaking, Home Depot parking lot employees or painters hired by the Koreans, I truly understand why we had the Boston Tea Party from our forefathers. So what do we have to do to stop all these constantly raising taxes????
The other other subject is now we own realestate, banks, GM, Ford & Chrsyler and have to pay our house payments & buy a car. Why didn't the gob't just give all of us hard-working Americans (who filed taxes or collect Social Security or going to college to better ourselves or unwed US mothers)$400,000 each and as we spend it all the problems will be taken care of---the economy would be great and we'd have something to show for our money instead of us just paying the bill.

We need to grab some pitchforks and some torches and drive meet them in the parking lot! I bet they have free passes for the toll lane. Damn crooks!

Where is this money going?-it may not even go to Los Angeles. Remember the freeways were paid for in the 50's.

Stupid, stupid sheeple. When did we have a vote to put these in again? Call your representative at least to see what they say.

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America -mainland China style.
