They are still pushing the papers and spending money for the tiny chance it will be built.

Wishing.

It ain't gonna happen at present but that could change because they WILL NOT stop pushing 'til its good and dead.

Their persistence does show exactly WHO and WHY of our roads and government. It shows their complete lack of respect for the People they work for.

Kings and Tyrants. Old story for them but so is ours.

Ah! the good old days when despot's heads were lopped off and stuck on a stick.

They still have financing problems and it ain't getting better anytime soon.

But make no mistake. We had better WATCH them NOW more than ever. They are desperate and very willing to make REALLY BAD DEALS for the People.

The People of NC need to watch their assets now. Hospitals, roads, bridges, any public asset. They have eaten everything else with their FUNNY MONEY.

AS we speak, Goldman Sachs is fishing every hole we have in this state. Concentrating on hospitals. Yep, they want a piece of the people's suffering too.

The People of this country have to get rid of the parasites.

We either do it now or let them have the government for good.

This is just part of the process. They have to do certain things and this is one of them.

Considering our economy, the projected economy for the coming years, and the uncertainty of banking in Charlotte it's madness to build this road.

But we'll see what happens.
