Everyone knows the government spends a ridiculous amount of money on fighting “terrorism” and it doesn’t really do much. Do you feel safer knowing the government is on the job? I sure don’t. I’m ticked that they introduce delays, close down access and generally make life more difficult, all while putting our country deeper in debt and accomplishing absolutely nothing.
At least I’m comforted by knowing it’s not just a national thing. This summer, a relatively busy stretch of highway was given a new layer of NovaChip, a fancy asphalt to help deal with rainfall.
First: Why does asphalt need a name like NovaChip? What’s wrong with better asphalt or something? It’s not like we’re talking a software product that gets released every year to hordes of people just clamoring for the new features. We’re talking asphalt, people.
Second: If this stuff is so good with handling the rain, why is it that the road that received the new coat was shut down during the morning commute due to wet and icy conditions? What a waste.
