"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

I’m 99% Confident MNDOT Has Better Things To Do

I see MNDOT is once again fiddling while Rome burns.



A couple weeks ago, while I was sitting in the parking lot MNDOT calls Hwy 35W northbound, I was passing under the bridge I normally drive on top of to get onto 35W. I had to run to Rosedale to pick up some new contacts so I was going under the County Rd. E2 bridge I normally drive on, not under.

Wood bridges over highways? Nah, can’t be….. I went back and checked it the next day. Sure enough, wood.

Note: I normally go on top of the E2 bridge to get onto 35W. I guessing hundreds if not thousands cross this bridge daily.

Well, in spite of their blind devotion to the boondoggle choo choos, the transportation department of Minnesota is now telling Vets to put their flags away….

Well, I’d have to say this bridge is structurally inefficient. Have a look. I grabbed some video and was going to get some good pictures, but if this is what MNDOT is doing with its time, I guess they could use a little help keeping us safe.

That “X” and all things between the 2 round pillars is wood. Yes wood. Like MNDOT ran to Home Depot grab some supplies to fix a concrete bridge.

I think MNDOT has more pressing things to worry about than flags. Here’s the video clip I snippet that pic out of. I took this video a few days after when I first noticed the wood.

I’ll try to get some better pictures tomorrow.
