I come down hard on unka sam and, to a lessor extent, state and local governments.  That's because this is my country and I care about it.

One of the things that keeps unka sam from being far, far more stupid than he is... is our form of government.  While unka likes to think he's the big boss of all things, it's actually the states that carry most of the load.  That's what frees up unka sam to randomly invade countries every other week.

Want to see what kind of shit would be happening if unka were not busy sticking his giant green weenie into other nations backsides?

You need look no further than China.  China has what the left wing longs for, dreams of.... an all powerful central government.  A government that does what it wants, when it wants and for whatever reason it wants.  It's run by highly educated people who have the best of intentions and are completely loyal to the government.  It's a leftist utopia.

Fixing America’s Endless Infrastructure Mess

This is quit a good article.  Getting things done takes a lot longer these days;

.............In September 2015, Howard, founder and chair of the reform-advocacy group Common Good, published the paper “Two Years Not Ten Years: Redesigning Infrastructure Approvals.” In it, he argued that time is money, and that America is wasting enormous amounts of both with an infrastructure approval system that is an “accident of legal accretion over the past 50 years”:

  America could modernize its infrastructure, at half the cost, while dramatically enhancing environmental benefits, with a two-year approval process. Our analysis shows that a six-year delay in starting construction on public projects costs the nation over $3.7 trillion, including the costs of prolonged inefficiencies and unnecessary pollution. This is more than double the $1.7 trillion needed through the end of this decade to modernize America’s infrastructure.

The nation that built the Empire State Building in 410 days during the Depression and the Pentagon in 16 months during wartime recently took nine years just for the permitting of a San Diego desalination plant. Five years and 20,000 pages of environmental assessments and permitting and regulatory materials were consumed before beginning to raise the roadway on New Jersey’s Bayonne Bridge, a project with, as Howard says, “virtually no environmental impact (it uses existing foundations and right-of-way).” Fourteen years were devoted to the environmental review for dredging the Port of Savannah, which has been an ongoing process for almost 30 years. While faux environmentalists litigate against modernizing America’s electrical grid, transmission lines waste 6 percent of the electricity they transmit, which equals 16 percent of 2015 coal-power generation and is equal to the output of 200 average-sized coal-burning power plants. In 2011, shippers using the inland-waterway system of canals, dams, and locks endured delays amounting to 25 years. In 2012, the Treasury Department estimated that traffic congestion wasted 1.9 billion gallons of gasoline annually. Diverting freight to trucks because of insufficient railway capacity quadruples fuel consumption. And so on, and on..............>

 Housing costs more.  Despite the good intentions.....many taxpayers live in poorer housing than the government builds for low income.  HUD raised everyone's rent, impoverishing many who were in affordable rentals until government was able to pay more.  They've corrected some of the more disastrous policies, but the results are still nothing to brag about.  

Military housing was condemned and yet substantially better than what we could afford in town.

Isn't it interesting how house prices skyrocketed with the advent of fannie mae and freddy mack?

Correlation isn't causation, of course.  There are other factors;  zoning laws, larger houses, and in the western states, federal annexation of vast quantities of land.

Thanks for the video.  The composition of homeless seem to be roughly the same across nations:  mentally ill, addicts, veterans and low functioning individuals.

Cities with significant homeless really should reconsider psychiatric institutions... perhaps attached physically to hospitals or universities?  As we've seen in the past, allowing psychiatric institutions to become isolated from society leads to really fucked up shit.

one reason why house prices are skyrocketing is too many want to live in the same locale. one reason for urban sprawl is land and houses are cheaper on the outer rings of a metro area.
