How can this not remind us of the aging pipelines carrying oil sludge and crud which now exceed their engineered longevity or are being built in risky locations. The solution (like that of DC lawmakers) is to assure us that all is ok, while in reality the pipes may fail at any moment, dumping poison into our aquifers and even polluting the Great Lakes where they cross the Straits of Mackinac between the upper and lower Michigan peninsulas. The Republicans take a ‘don’t worry be happy’ posture, too lazy to demand replacing the pipes or the screwball in the White House who they are pinning their hopes on to facilitate their greedy, short-sighted agendas.
And when the pipe inevitably bursts and inundates a region with their dirty carbon, the knee jerk response will be to somehow connect that disaster to Hillary or Obama or to a freak of nature. They are playing games with our environment and our country. If we don’t unload as many as possible in the next election cycle we are going to be screwed. In the meantime, so far as Trump is concerned, it seems that their appetite for looking the other direction is somewhat limitless. It may take a nuclear event to move them from their current culture of political malpractice.
The GOP (Government of the Potholes) is proud of their potholes and will probably simply begin say that potholes are an admirable sign of freedom that we should all rejoice in.
