That's nearly one a day for a year! lol

I'm not surprised most are over here. We have the Seattle corridor and our people in Congress know where they need to keep the most people happy.

Actually, bike paths are the act of a visionary. After the near total collapse of our economy due to this ridiculous bill, many more of us will need to rely on leg power to get around. A stroke of genius!

Nope. They're for the Chinese to use when they come over to

I just heard on Fox News (of all places) that the recent police recruits for both my city and state who were set to graduate and be immediately laid off due to lack of funds are now, in fact, being put to work on the streets. How?
Millions in Obama stimulus dollars have come through and saved the day.

Sweet.
