Obama's State of teh Union

I nearly choked when Obama decided to exploit that ol black lady voter who kept trying to swallow her tongue

Wtf lol? Does Mike Brady write his speeches? I always feel like im in the Brady household getting some sort of moral lesson when watching these.

it just sounds like he's telling people what they want to hear (create more jobs, bring the troops home, better schools, etc) and it all sounds good but lets see what happens.

^She's 102 years old. Congratulations to her.

I thought the speech was ok. A get our hopes up speech.

Is it me or does the Republican party seem to be a little lost?

Is it just me or is American politics a make believe side show?

Sideshow Bob 02-12-2013 11:34 PM

I saw the GOP made the cuban Sky Blue Tie Kid rebuttal after

But we gather here knowing that there are millions of Americans whose hard work and dedication have not yet been rewarded. Our economy is adding jobs Ė but too many people still canít find full-time employment. Corporate profits have rocketed to all-time highs Ė but for more than a decade, wages and incomes have barely budged.

Tonight, I propose a ďFix-It-FirstĒ program to put people to work as soon as possible on our most urgent repairs, like the nearly 70,000 structurally deficient bridges across the country. And to make sure taxpayers donít shoulder the whole burden, Iím also proposing a Partnership to Rebuild America that attracts private capital to upgrade what our businesses need most: modern ports to move our goods; modern pipelines to withstand a storm; modern schools worthy of our children. Letís prove that there is no better place to do business than the United States of America. And letís start right away.
that's a lot of bridges.

Bridge Collapses- More Common Than You Think

The deadly Mississippi River bridge collapse on August 1, 2007 was a tragedy that is not unheard of in the United States. It is the fourth major bridge collapse since 1989. Recent collapses include:
The "earthquake proof" Cypress Freeway Collapse of October 17, 1989 in which 67 people were injured, declared missing, or killed when a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck the area.
The Queen Isabella Causeway Disaster -September 15, 2001. Eight people lost their lives due to a multiple barge crash which collapsed the bridge support columns.
The Arkansas River Collapse -May 27, 2002. Fourteen people died as another barge hit a support beam in the state of Oklahoma.
There have been more than 500 failures of bridge structures in the United States since1989 according to a study conducted by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The age of the failed bridges ranged from the construction phase of less than a year to 157 years. The average age of bridges was 52.5 years.
Floods and collisions were the top cause of bridge failures.
Overload and impact forces from vehicles attributed 20% of the total bridge failure.Other causes are design, detailing, construction, material, and maintenance. Human-induced events occurred but were not a major factor.

That was posted in 2007. This country really needs to get it's shit together.

When i grew up i constantly day dreamed about having a life risking career of fixing bridges w/ structural damage

beautifulcock 02-13-2013 12:31 AM

Well good, cuz the gubment is hiring immediately.

beautifulcock 02-13-2013 12:36 AM

You really can't hire an unemployed car salesman to fix a bridge can you? I bet they outsource the job to Mexico. Those fuckers love risky jobs for little pay. Call it "Bridge to a green card".

It's not as bad as it may sound. It's actually pretty awesome if you got a pair.
