    How to fix traffic the American way 3 lane local 2 lane express if it gets worse add tolls. Add circles where cars turn a lot never on straightaways if needed add a grade separation keep traffic in 2 lanes but never more then 3 use buses maybe bike lanes never trains or trams or subway unless privatize as well make sure there's more than 1 way to get somewhere that helps with congestion even on small city streets that allow cars to go without slowing for circles or lights.

    Mexico is not largely a desert, it actually has one of the most fertile soils in the world, but not as much plain fertile land as the US. Mexico's lack of leadership during its development and colonial problems inherited by Spain doomed the country's history.

    What an idiot--would someone try to compare a Rolls-Royce to a crappy American passenger bus? Concorde was not a commercial success because the US Aviation industry, having failed to develop it's own SST, carried out a backstabbing, disruptive campaign of propaganda, bribery and threats against potential buyers and airports. When Concorde was planned (in 1956!) the transatlantic route was deemed the most important. Hindsight really is a perfect skill.

    Everyone always says "pAyINg mOrE wiLL mAke tHiNgs CoST mORe." But not enough people say the truth that greedy CEOs and shareholders could easily offer better pay if they cut their own payday. Also maybe if education wasn't insanely expensive across the board we'd have more educated, qualifed, and capable individuals to apply for jobs.

    Having loose finance regulation for a human right such as health care is just plain greed. Personally I don't have a problem paying higher taxes towards free health care, I couldn't imagine the mental well-being of a recovered patient slapped with a massive medical bill they could never afford. At least with most bills you can stop paying and stop receiving the service, but you can't jump out of an ambulance
