Re: Politics

Here's a few democratic policies that hurt the poor. Tax on sweetened beverages in certain cities. Rich people can afford to drive elsewhere to get whatever they want, inner city residents can't. The lottery. Poor people waste millions of dollars on the lottery. Over the top environmental laws that...

Re: Politics

And what about FBI statistics are "right-wing tropes"? Being 13% of the population and committing 53% of all murders is meaningless? What's the point? The point is the black community are killing each other at alarming rates and no amount of policing will stop that. Just so you're aware, presenting...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

A way to make the bridge interesting without a superstructure could be some sort of landscaping. I'm picturing something like the High Line in NYC or the canned Garden Bridge project in London. The eastern side of the new bridge could be the traffic, while the western side could be the landscaping. ...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

The bridge design is disappointing to me because of how permanent it will be. People born when the original bridge was built are middle aged now, and this new bridge will presumably last far longer. Maybe I'm being selfish but I'd prefer looking at an interesting bridge for most of my life than a bo...

As for voter fraud and mail-in issues. I don’t think up until this election they’ve been a massive issue.
What's different about this election?

Re: Politics

Actually, I didn’t defend the republicans historical efforts to affect votes. I just said both parties do that and it’s now apparent you were mistakenly talking about voter suppression which is a completely different tactic than disenfranchisement. It’s really not a trivial difference either. As fo...

And now they're just expected to vote for Biden/Harris because if they don't, "They ain't black". Biden and Harris have atrocious records on imprisoning young black men.
It’s almost like we need candidates that are actually progressive or something

Nashville kept their old bridge for pedestrians and build a new stylish one. I don't think anyone seeks out the new one despite its pretty design.
Pedestrians are going to gravitate towards the pedestrian bridge, yes.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

My dream has always been to remove the north and west loops all together. Make 169 just turn into broadway and turn the north loop and lewis and clark viaduct back into a parkway or something. Long term I could see the west loop and lewis and clark getting downgraded to parkways of some sort if the...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

It doesn't take a lot to add some interest to a bridge. How much could the texture on the piers of the new 670 viaduct have added to the construction cost?

IMO there's a huge difference between driving over a single narrow colorful crosswalk and driving down an entire street with random painted zigzagging colors. The latter sounds like it could actually be a truly hazardous situation.
What’s your evidence?
