Yes, our infrastructure is falling apart. Bridges, electric towers, water lines, sewer lines, storm drains, all of it. Even the roads and highways are falling into disrepair. Most of it was maintained by state employees until a few decades back when the govs started letting their employees go and privatizing the upkeep. Even the grass on highways is cut by contractors now. I wonder how much money was made by the politicians during that time and since.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Hell, they just flush it right back into the ocean man.
