Highway to Hell

Some items of interest have been floating around the net in recent days, probably connected and a good indication of where the fascists want to bring this nation. If their plans come to fruition we can kiss our freedom to travel as we know it adieu.

There are plans for a massive superhighway to be built along the I35 and I29 corriders in the US and it would link up with highways in Canada and Mexico.

From the Scotsman:

"A MASSIVE road four football fields wide and running from Mexico to Canada through the heartland of the United States is being proposed amid controversy over security and the damage to the environment.
The "nation's most modern roadway", proposed between Laredo in Texas and Duluth, Minnesota, along Interstate 35, would allow the US to bypass the west coast ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to import goods from China and the Far East into the heart of middle America via Mexico, saving both cost and time."

This gargantuan project would have an unbelievably negative impact on just about everything except large corporate profits. Thousands of square miles would be taken up and paved over including prime farm soil. Who knows how many people would be uprooted by eminent domain.
Running alonside this monstrosity would be railroad lines and oil pipelines. There wouldn't be any local access roads and the pollution would be staggering. A lot of work has already gone into this boondoggle and construction will actually start on the Texas end next year.

What I'm interested in is the intent behind this project. One thing that stands out is that this will be a privately run operation. Just one more aspect of the scumbags selling our nation piece by piece to the highest bidders. Do there have to be any more examples to convince people that this government couldn't give a shit about the public welfare? Of course these will be toll roads,
as Alex Jones puts it:

"Imagine for a moment what must have been going through the minds of the six-legged elites when they thought up this diabolical scheme. The question is “How do you destroy the national sovereignty of the United States, merge it with the rest of the western hemisphere, build the infrastructure system needed to link up the entire landmass, confiscate private property on a wholesale level, spy on everyone’s comings and goings, and trick American suckers into paying for their own demise all in one fell swoop ? The answer: TOLL EVERYTHING!"

Since the fascists never miss an opportunity to do things with overlapping purposes, this superhighway in the middle of the country's landmass would obviate the port cities on the coast. Most trade goods would be offloaded by cheap Mexican labor down south and trucked up to the Smart Port at Kansas City. A major benefit to the large corporations for sure as they deal the teamsters and longshoreman's unions a death blow. The economies of those coastal blue states who hold no love for the Bushistas will wither on the vine as the midsection of the country prospers.

This project is also a wet dream of the New World Order types as it will formally eliminate the borders that have been in essence ignored by corporations and the traitorous criminals in Washington. Living conditions will even out with american wages dropping to those of latin america. Long term plans call for this monster road to stretch all the way down through south america. Very conveniently stopping by Venezuela to suck up it's oil once the US decides to Iraqify that nation.

Now for a prediction on my part. Later today, July 2, there's going to be a general election in Mexico. The two major sides couldn't be farther apart along with observers saying the voting will be close. Former mayor of Mexico City Andrés Manuel López Obrador is a leftist along the lines of Chavez of Venezuela. Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojosa wants to continue a Fox - like course.

Obrador is slightly ahead in the polls but will lose this election. Why? All indications are that the voter rosters will be scrubbed of Obrador supporters, a la the Florida and Ohio debacles here in 2000 and 2004. A left leaning president of Mexico simply will not be allowed to happen by the fascists. As Greg Palast opines, "Wholesale theft is expected on Sunday in forms both subtle and brutal."

Gotta lay the groundwork for that highway

The only good thing I can say about that is at least it doesn't pass through my state.
