Vice President Joe Biden actually said this week if we don't pass the jobs bill there would be more rapes and murders.
He actually said that.
We were also told if we didn't pass all the stimulus the president wanted there would be consequences.
Well we did pass stimulus and look where it got us.
This from the Monroe, Louisiana newspaper.
Monroe Regional Airport officials learned Tuesday passenger loading and unloading bridges at the new $36 million terminal are not being able to connect to airplanes.
The Airport director confirmed this Tuesday afternoon.
He said airport officials are working to determine what caused the problem, if the issue resulted from a design flaw during the construction process or if it was a result of an error on the city's part.
The mayor of Monroe says "I'm trying to find out what's going on. What I've been told is the loading bridges are not long enough to reach the airplanes. They are several feet short, which presents a problem for the planes connecting to the loading bridges. There's a certain distance the planes have to stop at the building, and the loading bridges cannot reach out there. I don't know if there was a test, but there should have been one. I am very concerned whether or not a test was done prior to the first plane coming in, and I'm going to get to the root of the problem. It's just not acceptable."
He said in the meantime, the airport will have to improvise with the loading and unloading of passengers.
At least a local company got the stimulus money.
To borrow a quote from the motion picture "The Right Stuff" is this a government project or what?
That's my point of view what's yours?
