Road construction, like any Federal program, has become terribly expensive. Lobbyists love these contracts, and politicians make sure they get a nice kickback from those who benefit from the money. Virginia is a right to work state, but of course we see requirements for only using union workers. Bribes are Us wins again.

Actually this is due to a printing delay. Once more ballots arrive at the Democratic Headquarters, they will be able to come up with the necessary votes to carry the election. There are plenty of dead and living voters who haven't had a chance to cast their 5th or 6th vote yet.
And of course, those independents who are elected always caucus with the Democrats - the most top down controlled party that ever existed in US politics. Hardly an independent minded choice.
Those who call themselves independent will vote for anyone wearing that label. Dems have learned that backing an independent (with democrat money) will split the conservative vote and allow liberals to win. It happened in Virginia last year and we lost the governor's race because of it by 2%. Independent took 5% while being stealthily backed financially by a democrat from Texas. This year the same independent is trying to split the vote for Senator from Virginia.
It is "the end justifies the means" theology...
I don't think the question of being favorable to BO represents a thinking response. It is more the "correct" answer to give to be politically correct. Lets hope the population votes their pocketbook, and not what they have been taught.
You may consider it stealing, but when the cop unlocks the door for you, and then looks the other way, it is a gift, not a theft. It was an arranged gift. The US government only wanted deniability.
Imagine if, instead of strapping on a bomb belt, some would be bomber simply goes to Africa, intensely exposes himself to Ebola to as to be sure to be infected. Then he files by a very indirect pat to America changing passports on the way. Then, sniffling he rides the NYC subways all day long wiping his runny nose on his hands and rubbing all the handrails and door jams he can. Repeat that in O'Hare airport, the Boston Subway, some football/basketball stadiums, and who needs an atomic bomb?

Having flu like symptoms would put an end to all this fundraising. Or at least, who wants to attend and possibly shake hands with the infected President? Everyone could wear bio-hazard suits and applaud politely. I think this is nature's October surprise.
