How is Wisconsin going to be open for business when the city streets are going to be closed?
Dear Scott Walker, I OPPOSE senate bill 22 and so much more. This evening, I'd like to discuss the reduction in funding for city streets, while there is an increase in funding for county roads and interstates. I have heard that your reasoning for the changes is because of the harsh winters and the amount of snow. You do know that snow falls on city streets, also, right? You do know that the ground freezes and shifts under city streets, also, right? You do know that city streets get potholes, also, right? Since we are motorcycle riders, we both know how dangerous potholes can be. Help me understand the thinking behind reducing the funding in the cities. Was this part of your "Wisconsin is open for business" plan? Business people do drive on county roads and interstates, but did you ever stop to think how they get to those county roads and interstates? I am fairly certain that a majority, if not all, business people take at least one city street daily. Then when you take into consideration how many non-business people use city streets on a daily basis, I think the numbers might astound you. Now I know that you don't feel the non-business citizens are as important. Wait, let me back up and rephrase because that is quite presumptuous of me, especially since we have never formally communicated with each other. I do not count your automatically generated form replies as communication. Your actions against non-business people makes it seem as if you do not value them as much as business people. Do you think that sounds PC enough? PC stands for "politically correct"; I know that seems like an oxymoron based on the behavior of some governmental officials lately. An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms. It is not an unintelligent person who uses a particular brand of laundry detergent. Get it Oxy(clean) and moron :) That diversion was fun, now back to the issue. How is Wisconsin going to be open for business when the city streets are going to be closed? Wisconsin's city streets will literally be broke. I OPPOSE senate bill 22 and so much more.
