Why was that Kennedy cat drooling so hard.  Must have been having a hard time choking down those lies he was laying out.

Anything to do with turds, fresh or stale, warm or cold, hard or runny - funnier than Amy Schumer.  Chuck Schumer is funnier than Amy Schumer.

Dewy used 87% of 1002 people for a basis of one of his rabbit holes, so which is it?

It's called having it both ways.

We should be actively shifting money from the gibmedat programs and aggressively cutting waste.   That should free up more than enough

And yes SS, Health care, and entitlement reform should be taken on as well.

I thought it was horrible the Dems giving Dreamers seats to the SOTU.  Those seats should have gone to real American citizens.  Again very reflective of just how out of touch Dems are with real American citizens.

More from CBS:

How did the public react to #SOTU ?

91% - Favored what they heard on infrastructure

81% - @POTUS was uniting the country

75% - Approved of the speech

75% - Favored what they heard on national security

72% - Favored what they heard on immigration

Wow.

Meanwhile, Dems acted like they were at a funeral.

Likely their own.

Their scowling and posturing are perfect. They have just given companies producing campaign commercials for Republicans a gift. Fade into the SOTU speech. Voice over says "Proud to be an American"? "Not if you are a Democrat." Insert the candidate's name being run against, and a slow motion cameo of their best scowling moment sitting on their hands, as Trump says patriotic things, and Republicans stand and shout USA USA. Thanks Socialist Dems, you just showed how much you value Party and politics over the well being of our country, and it's citizens.

Guiterrez is going to find out walking out on the USA USA chant only goes to show how much he hates America.  His deep and long La Raza links are coming out everywhere. 

La Raza being the KKK for Mexicans.  Dems think it is fine for La Raza to spew hate, but it is not.

Trump gets least positive reaction in at least 20 years.  His approval rating is not that high so this should come as no surprise.

Yeah, I'd much rather a "real American citizen" like this guy get a ticket over a Dreamer that considers America his/her home, is contributing to society and possibly even serving in our military.

I'm sure they were happy to be there to hear that POTUS intends to legalize them - give them full citizenship, he said.  Them, plus many more.

As some of you might know, Interstate 70 as you leave St. Louis and head toward Kansas City is in need of some major work.  For over a year, there has been a drive to make Interstate 70 a toll road for that span of road.  I have even heard that the State of Missouri might trade off care of the interstate around St. Louis and KC by the private toll and then the state would take care of the middle section.  Again, this stuff has been in the talks for right at a year now that I know of.  So, this isn't a new thing.  

I think that every SOTU speech is full of promises and so, to attack Trump because he follows suit of every President is to ignore the past.  IMO, often a portion of the SOTU speech is a wish list.  We'll see how much he actually gets done.  I am hopeful and do think this speech to be a good one.  


There are only a handful of truly privatized roadways in the US.  There are a few.  I think the one Indiana went bankrupt.   Texas and CA have experimented with it, and there is one in Chicago.

In Europe, it's common.  Finance companies take 100 year leases on them.  In America, we can't get our heads around that, and balk.  Almost all of the ones in the US that are privatized are own by Europeans, which opens up a whole other set of issues.

Here in GA, the state issued a call for bidders a few years back on one the first privatized roads in the South.  Shockingly, the bidders/financiers wanted to make decisions as to tolls and alignment, given that their motive was to make a profit.  In the end, the state recalled the RFP, because they did not want to relinquish control over those decisions.  The state toll authority picked it up, and is building it now as a state-owned tollway.

In the US, the model has mostly been to take over an existing roadway, toll it, and operate it for profit.  That is a much different model than building a new highway.  It is politically unpopular to sell a roadway built with taxpayer money.

Anyways, there are a few, but is not, as of yet, a very viable financing option.  It gets talked about all the time, but it is very hard to implement.

Hey Dewey, last time I checked 48 + 22 is 70. The same percentage that everyone else is reporting. CNN just decided to break the “positive” into 2 categories so they could publish a lower number.
Notice how your misleading headline tries to slant the fact that his approval was higher than you want.
My god man you are insufferable with your attempts at deceit.
Dewey lie counter off the scale

I-44 out of OKC is a toll but I think it is state run.
That one has always baffled me. It is listed as an Interstate. How does part of it become a toll road especially when it’s pretty much the only route to Tulsa.

In the Houston area we have beltway 8 toll road that circles the city about 10 miles outside the interstate 610 loop. Former mayor Lanier and his group of investors were able to somehow pre purchase all the viable intersection property before plans were finalized. Go another 15 miles and the 99 toll road makes a huge partial loop from hwy US 59 on the extreme southwest side of Houston crosses I-10, US 290, I-45, and ends up on US 59/69 on the extreme Northeast part of the Houston area. Austin now has a Toll road bypassing it, but it seems they built it too far out of Town, and for the moment, truck traffic still clogs I-35. They built a bunch of small toll roads that bypass a lot of the traffic areas closer, and in town.

The Trans Texas corridor US959/69) was originally a project bid on by a company out of Spain. It was dubbed the NAFTA highway and was supposed to come out of Mexico, through South Texas, and use the US 59/69 route to the interior US all the way to Canada. Everybody in Texas got pissed because the deal to the Spain based company was giving all the condemned property, and the high end lease property on major intersections to the Spain company. People actually showed up to meetings and a bill killing it in the state legislature was passed. It was renamed, and somehow US 69 started morphing onto road signs. Dead but not yet dead.

Next phase, a high speed rail originating in Houston, following a right of way west, and a hub in Katy. Thenceforth straight North through farm lands and rural homes near me where the condemnation is easy, and ending up in Dallas. Other routes connecting San Antonio and Austin to Dallas are planned. I'm sure the "informed" investors have already started the process of contracts for purchasing the soon to be condemned property. In the meantime, there is a major amount of opposition to the rail, and the politicians that stand to lose their jobs are fighting it tooth and nail. Of course those that will approve the deal are insulated by distance from our region, and they already have a sweet retirement plan in the works.

Damn Woody, why didn’t you tell us about this earlier? I would love to have that contract. I’m just looking for a reason to get out of California anyway, and making $$ billions in Texas is a great reason! [rofl]

Viewership by year:

2018 - 45.6M  Trump
2017 - 47.7M  Trump
2016 - 31.3M  Obama
2015 - 31.7M  Obama
2014 - 33.3M  Obama
2013 - 33.5M  Obama
2012 - 37.7M  Obama
2011 - 42.8M  Obama
2010 - 48.0M  Obama
2009 - 52.4M  Obama
2008 - 37.5M  Bush

Clearly, there is high interest at the beginning of a presidency and it wanes.  Technically, Terp is right that most of America didn't watch.  But to infer that it wasn't relevant makes no sense.
