to share on the Canda bridge topic...

the MI REPUBLICAN governor staged an all out assault on the one private (though highly regulated) bridge in Detroit to Canada...

"Why in the world should a private individual own "monopoly" profits", they asked.

Well my economically illiterate governor, you don't apparently know: 1) monopoly's are only created by the state, 2) there is a tunnel in Detroit that people can use IF the "monopolist" was abusing his privellage, 3) there are other bridges outside of Detroit for the same in #2, 4) there's no chance in hell he can charge whatever he wants like a monopolist with the government looking over his shoulder.

So, the MI so-called REPUBLICAN governor's biggest accomplishment? Demonizing the "monopoly" that government allowed a private investor, and demanding that government crush that investor by building another bridge (which will not taxpayer funded according to him, and probably won't "compete" with the "private" bridge... ha!).
