Wow, POTUS coming to my neighborhood on Thursday

... when I say "my neighborhood", I really mean it -- he's supposed to be touring the troubled Carrollton water plant on Thursday. It's a prime opportunity for the local residents to put pressure on the terrible Sewerage and Water Board here:

... the problem is, although I'm all in favor of his infrastructure plan, throwing more money at this particular problem isn't likely to solve it-- the S&WB will just take the money and it'll disappear somewhere.

Wear your red hat when you join the crowd. Less chance of a stray round hitting you.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Actually this neighborhood is very blue, it's a predominantly minority neighborhood that went very solidly Biden in the last election and just elected Troy Carter to replace Cedric Richmond, who is now a senior advisor to Joe.

If it had been Orange Dump, I would have thrown him into the sewerage.

Since it's Joe, it's like shining sunlight onto the cockroaches that are the S&WB. He can only improve things, even just by his presence.

It is LA, as far as government corruption goes, they do excel at that.
What did Huey P Long say, something like, “I stole the money, but I did it for you.”?

Huey P., Bill Jefferson, Ray Nagin, Edwin Edwards, and let's not forget David Duke ... we have 'em all. [www.nola.com]

I've got some bad news for you about how a good deal of these funds typically get spent, and who gets the jobs...

Oh, I'm well aware. The administrators of the S&WB here get upwards of $200-500K+/year, with no oversight to speak of.

Ummm: 1) I don't own a pickup; 2) I don't have any blue Biden flags. I do drive a blue Prius, does that count? grinning smiley

Depending on when he's there, I might happen to be in the crowd somewhere though.
