I just drove north from seattle around 7PM, the I-5 North is super clear. no backups, use HWY 9 as a detour instead of the forced detour, its soooooooo much fun to drive, seriously super fun and windey and unmolested pavement. no potholes.

Obama wanted to invest in infrastructure upgrades at the start of his first term but the way the American political system works, he has to get Congress's approval, and the Senate filibustered the idea (basically unless 60% of the Senate votes in favour it can be blocked indefinitely).

The more you know.

^ So it was Bush's legacy leaving hardliners in office. Dem Republicans wanting murr guuns and ermmo fer de werr in eyerack, yet blaming Obama for everything that went wrong. And defending the Second Amendment while violating three others.

Really? I thought the influx of hardliners came in 2010 with the rise of the Tea Party (basically extreme economic conservative + 13th century social views)
