There is money in the infrastructure bills to harden national infrastructure against global climate change, but I'm sure the GQP in Mississippi wouldn't apply for the money because they wouldn't want Mississippians to get addicted to passable highways. Besides, global climate change is a hoax just like COVID.

"it was a state hiway, not part of the national infrastructure."

Hundreds of billions of infrastructure money goes to states. Highway 26 is a state highway (i.e. third tier after Interstate and US Highways), so the "money in the infrastructure bill" referred to in post #2 will absolutely be used to repair roads like these, since is absolutely IS considered part of the national infrastructure.

A week like this just proves that Al Gore was the better choice.

Saddam didn't try to kill his daddy.
and he warned us about climate change.

Imagine had we spent more money addressing the ecosystem? Instead, we got two very expensive wars, and a borrow to spend spree leading to an economic collapse. Don't get me started on the Katrina response.

Fact is Biden... has been actively participating in cleaning up Bushturd2s mess for 9 years now...first as VP and now as POTUS

like shooting pigs in a barrel

Highway 26 is a main artery between Mississippi and Louisiana, the George County Sheriff's Office told CNN.


Sure sounds like needed infrastructure to me.
