If Putin is bad, how could GWB meet him and declare, " "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy...I was able to get a sense of his soul."
If Assad's Syria is bad, why did the United States rendition suspects there to be tortured?
It seems the U.S. picks and chooses who is good and who is bad depending on the situation.
In 2002 there was a vote on the debt ceiling 37 Democrat Senator Voted yes and 31 Republicans voted yes. In the house 212 Republicans voted yes. In '03 in the Senate, Yes votes: 50 R's & 3 D's. In '04 50 R's and 2 D's Senators voted Yes. In the house 208 R's voted yes. In '06 52 R's voted yes in the Senate. in '07 the yeses were 26 D's and 27 R's.
What was different from '02 to '07 that made Republicans think raising the debt limit was good policy?
Republican leaders think Medicare as well as Social Security, Medicaid, et is a government teet. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/08/27/200513/in-idaho-boehner-vows-to-succeed.html#.UhzPbT-9Lg0
The only thing that is missing is writing that liberals are driven by their belief in Ayn Rand. How did he miss that?
A quick look at http://www.gowallawalla.us/downloads/Pleasant.pdf shows this project was awarded Culbert Construction for $1.7 million. Which means, yes it was contracted out.
You're right. Who needs engineers? Let's have drivers and trailer park residents design bridges! "Hey, Jethro, I think a couple of 2x4's and some plywood will do the jobs. Ain't no need for reinforced concrete & structural steel."
I'm sure the traffic study done by those against was very well thought out and thorough. Oh that's right, they didn't have one did they? Emotions and "feeling from the gut" makes much more sense than historical data, engineering principals and best practices.
It's great to see that Walla Walla holds the engineering expertise and judgement of a trailer park to be better than the engineering expertise and judgement of engineers.
