Cool! Y'all can drive over that bridge. I think I'll remain a couch potatoe.

I have a few things with the Made in China label. They all have some design flaw. I could go into detail, but this thread is about bridges. I just hope we have some American engineers checking things out.

Of course, you know that the beautiful (yes, I've been there) Hong Kong Airport is such an engineering disaster that the foundation is eroding and it will, one day, roll off into the South China Sea...not one thing can be done about it.

Pretty much everything we get from China makes me think of the kids' refrain: "Me Chinese. Me play joke. Me put pee pee in your Coke."

One must wonder when the US can build 'the Intercontinental Railroad' ( as Obama claimed) we would be the leader in building bridges too.

Ahh such satire/irony since the western half of the transcontinental railroad was built largely with Chinese labor.

You have, no doubt, been following the discussion on China's currency manipulation?

It's a bipartisan bill so I doubt CaféAuLait's following it or has much interest in it.

Because I had the gall to comment on the fact that we are using taxpayer dollars to build infrastructure built by China?

That is a lot of the problem in politics and or discussions about such today, ASSumptions. But whatever floats your boat, I guess.

The sad fact is that if we tried to build the intercontinental railroad now, IT WOULD NEVER FUCKING HAPPEN.


Someone would sue due to thier land being taken for eminent domain
Someone would sue because the railroad would go through the habitat of the utah snail darter
You would need a 20 year environmental impact study performed before you could lay a single rail.
The design would be late due to 50 different agencies having a say on what got built

I could go on with this.....
