On Toll Roads and Opportunism

RECEIVED Thu., Sept. 9, 2004

Dear smarter people,
   I recently took some action to understand the toll road issue and I agree that we are truly being misled. Surprise! This isn’t anything new considering we as Americans are greedy and we steal from one another all the time. This is why we are so hated in the international community. For instance, think about how much we steal from one another in our own country; why then wouldn’t we steal from our international neighbors too? Well now, aside from my "Americans the opportunist affirmation," if it sounds new and different, someone is trying to steal something.
   By the way, the letter from Rick Perry’s office proclaiming that the gas tax revenue is decreasing due to hybrids and more fuel efficient cars is so absurd I fell out of my chair and injured myself. Now I can’t drive my big SUV.
