    "President George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin have already signed this SPP Agreement in Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005".

    Of course, Waco - how fitting. What locale says "Here's a big 'fuck you, U.S. Constitution, American sovereignty, and 200 years of self-rule' - from your loving federal government", quite like Waco? It was practically pre-ordained.

    Yey! And whats the first stop for illegals and terrorists? San Antonio.

    They are also going to change existing highways into toll roads to pay for this crap, including the road I have to use just to get out of my neighborhood.

    What annoys me the most about this is how this will be referred to as "privatization", even though it will use eminent domain to grab the land and taxpayer dollars to build it*. But hey, it's privately managed, so it's a private road! Truly privatized roads--built without eminent domain and with road companies free to decide traffic laws and billing schemes--would be great.



    *Or some of it, apparently; it's not clear from these articles how much of the cost is being fronted by private companies. I'm really wondering how many companies would put up the massive funds required when the project won't be completed for 50 years. And that's 50 years according to the government; we all know how government projects get built on time and on budget. :laugh:

    This highway is only for trucks, right? This could very well be the end for the conservative party in Canada.
