re: clark kent
keep in mind that it was entirely a smokescreen by our media to cover more serious issues. 17 separate terror events. Somalia. Broken promises on Bosnia as well as what turned out to be a false reason to go in. etc. etc. Most of us just shook our heads and left it at that. The media itself was the one that took the bit in their teeth and used it to ignore other matters of greater importance..They did a lot of that. One I lost a job to was the constantly blabbering about infrastructure as if it was a thing of importance, but at the same time the 103rd Congress cutting it by at least 80% plus the personnel. The Corps of Engineers laid off 8,000 engineers alone. They pulled most grants to states and funding for the highway system. It’s all but forgotten now that primary highways had 70% federal funding and interstates 95% in 1993. The money was funneled into buying votes via social programs. .After 20 years, it’s not surprising that almost everything is falling apart. Roads, bridges (6000 in immediate danger of collapse. ASCE), ports, canals, dams, locks, levies, power lines, phone lines (the local ones are project mercury and gemini era), inland waterways, gas pipelines, oil pipelines, water systems, sewer systems and so on.
