I'm still wondering why the Feds think they can usurp the States powers and
force feed this stuff.......at our expense. The only benefit this high-speed
rail will have is in the northeast, kinda like Amtrak. Oh wait, isn't that the
taxpayer subsidized, money losing train system concentrated in the northeast?
So now we need another one? High speed rail is for passengers, not a whole lot
of freight will move by high speed rail, so I am really questioning the need.
Will those of us in the fly-over states get a new moniker; the
speed-through-on-the-high-speed-train states? The blur-between-the-coasts
states? Either way, I don't see the cost to benefit equation balancing on this
one. As for the Govs; keep doing what you are doing. I like it.
Re: Brother Chuck Schroeder | 6:17 p.m. Feb. 27, 2011 Utah is a
right to work state which means our citizens aren't forced to join a union or
pay union dues. Our state workers have the right to work, and are free to seek
employment else where if they don't like their salaries and benefits.
"'They are so obsessed with the short-term political game of keeping the
president from succeeding that they've taken their eyes off of the big goal ...
which is creating jobs and moving our states and country out of this recession,'
said Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, chairman of the Democratic Governors
Association." Obama has done such a poor job creating jobs and moving our
country out of the recession so far, he and his administration can't be trusted
with that task anymore. The very costly stimulus bill was supposed to keep
unemployment under 8%. It didn't come close. Ask the millions of people whose
home mortagages are under water if the like Obama's handling of the recession.
The fact is Obama, the community orgainzer, doesn't have a clue about how to fix
the economy. He's in way over his head.
Typical of the AP, poor Obama. He ignores the Constitution, he enforces only
laws he agrees with, he receives money through the money laundering in the
Democrat party from the unions. It is time that those who pay the salaries of
the public service employees get a break, they pay taxes to support the union
workers who have better benefits than they have individually. Not right!
"YOU-BETCHA" Florida is a great State. Ya'll got that right,
"REAL" Tea Party Republican governors, from Florida to Alaska, (but
what about Utah?), are undermining President Barack Obama's agenda at every turn
ahead of the Democrat's 2012 re-election campaign. Here's the big question now.
Let's get to work. Florida Gov. Rick Scott says collective bargaining shouldn't
be a constitutionally protected right in Florida. Collective bargaining is the
key issue in the protests in Wisconsin, and Scott told Bloomberg TV he'd like to
see Florida's Constitution changed so that it no longer guarantees workers the
right to collective bargaining. "It'd be great to be able to change it,''
Scott said. "Our state workers don't pay for anything into their pension
plan. And we can't afford that it's not fair to taxpayers. If you didn't have
collective bargaining, would it be better for the state?. Absolutely." So
in short, "Rick Scott remove Collective Bargaining." Will Utah do the
