    What good is infrastructure going to do if people can’t get gas, food, and necessities. Can’t afford to travel if you can’t buy gas or afford your precious green vehicles. This government is a joke and the rest of the world knows it. God help us all.

      @Shonda Davis What I’m seeing is that scene in Coyote Ugly where they’re watching Jersey on stage and that guy gets all loud and obnoxious, and Rachel calm as can be, back fisted him right in the face.

    “I filled out my survey, I want five bucks” lols

    • MrShanester117 says:

    DO NOT TRUST WALSH! I’m from Massachusetts and I don’t believe this man has EVER told the complete truth. There’s ALWAYS something that he’s hiding.

    • MrShanester117 says:

      Kennedy is exactly the same

    • 2 U says:

      Isn’t that the basic requirement to occupy a senate seat? But truthfully I’m more concerned with the citizens that put them there. I think it would be an excellent investment in human infrastructure to raise Americans Literacy levels to compete with civilized Nations

    • Landon Reihs says:

      You think we’ve ever trusted these people lmao, we’re their little game and they’ve controlled what we do and most times the outcome

    • Rye Rob says:

      @2 U that investment in human infrastructure wont be for Americans…it’ll be used on the millions of immigrants rushing across our borders during 10% Biden’s time as the tyrannical leader of the nation

    • InvestorGuy66 says:

      @MrShanester117 Something tells me that you’d say the same thing if God Himself held Kennedy’s seat.

    The Secretary’s look at the end was priceless, my friend.

  8. omsk11051 says:

    if a “Labor” secretary wears THIS BIG RING, he has nothing to do with labor per se, he is a bureaucrat that lines his OWN pockets with all the federal $$/ TAX PAYERS $$ by means of lying and allotting fat projects to his cronies who give him kick-backs

    • Jim Mcintyre says:

      Same with either party

    • Paolo Curradini says:

      Do you know what “Labor” even means? Based on what you wrote I highly doubt it, but then an even more fascinating question emerges: what could you possibly think labor might mean, that would justify the belief that it’s secretary can’t wear whatever he wants?

      I just looked at all my broken nails!

    Imagine how well every American could be living if these people had any respect for how they spend OUR money? Love the I looked it up on the internet.

      We can help others but we can not because there’s no equality for the poor to pay the bill that is demanding, talent going to the dust, people that want to get off of wellfare and can’t having the means to do so, what a waste.
