This interstate will not be finished before I die. Optimistically speaking I will be 100 years old in 2072. They might be building the road beds then.

It took a long time for I540 between Ft Smith and Fayetteville. Also If Arkansas is constantly poking the administration in the eye with a sharp stick we will not get much traction on those issues. I guess we should elect all Repubs and pour gas on the fire. Because if anybody thinks the Repub party has any intention of sending funds our way they are wrong. That funding will go for the 7 trillion dollar tax cuts for their buddies. I guess we will just have to cut off our nose to spite our face. And eventually the middle class will be no more and we will all be poor except that 1 or 2%. So I say Put all those Repubs in, but don't whine when they take all of your money and rights. Just pull yourself up by your own bootstraps. They wont do it but everybody else has to even though the deck will be stacked against you. Because they will deal the cards. Go for it.
