State senator visits port

WILMINGTON -- One of the state senators who voted to give $7.5 million of your taxes dollars to our ports last year paid a visit today. Sen. Walter Dalton is running for lieutenant governor and visited the port of Wilmington to check out the four new cranes the state money helped purchase. He says our ports are essential for the state's economic well-being. Sen. Dalton said, "I'm very impressed. I'm very glad that we made that investment. This year we put another $7.5 million into the ports authority for additional revenues for them to do some good things out here to help us compete in the international economy." Sen. Dalton says he hopes more businesses will continue to come our way as the state continues to expand resources at the port.

Great news for those who work at the ports. Bad news for those of us who believe that this is just another step to process us into a "service oriented economy", what ever that is. Let's all get together and nod our heads with a dumb ass grin on our face when our "honorables" want to build this new, bigger and better port they've been harping about. No doubt we will be able to bring those Chi-com products into our country lickety split. Doesn't anyone seem to notice how all of our tax dollars seem to be going to big business and big government or is it my cynical observations? Isn't Senator Dalton proud of what he has done!!!
Put some money for new roads in you stupid politician.
