    The government in Texas will just condemn it under our eminent domain laws

    Yeah, you guys in Texas have some unusual laws governing land use, in this case just replace corp's goons with state goons.

    You mean like the Trans Texas Corridor ? Because that took up all kinds of private property.

    I have two questions that someone might be able to answer.

    1) IF Obamacare takes effect will Medicaid be terminated and those people be forced to pay for their health insurance?
    2) When they say 50M people now go without health insurance does that include all the Medicaid recipients that also cannot afford it? If not, how many people should be added to the 50M to make it a real number of uninsured?

    That Corridor is finished. Our laws say that if a private corp. that is good for the economy wants your land that they can apply eminent domain laws to take it. Good old conservative trickle down theory

    You must live in that part of Texas that is a state of mind.

    What did you think I meant when I said the Trans Texas Corridor is finished. That means any illusions of Perryesque Grandeur has gone to the same place our rain has. It's finished ,kaput, no mas, cancelled.

    The govt guarantees nothing.

    It was conservative texans that shouted it down. Trickle down works just ask Obama.

    He implemented the largest trickle down project ever concieved.

    The stimulus. Problem is he took our money and let it trickle down to state unions and then back to the democrat re-election comittes through union dues.

    If a conservative did that you people would want him in jail.

    Obama does it and hes a hero


    Hypocrites

    Well then explain exactly whats wrong with my assertion that Obama's failed stimulus was actually a give away to public sector unions.

    Instead of insults prove your point.

    If you cant I understand. It's a exceptional individual that after all his failures still supports him.

    I guess a good analogy would be polishing the brass on the Titanic.....AFTER it had hit the iceberg

    First, I do agree with the Obama stimulus going to public sector unions but it does not bother me as much as the Bush stimulus going to Wall Street bankers.

    Secondly, I don't see either as a failure.
