STORM SYSTEM MOVING ACROSS WATERLOGGED PALMETTO STATE …

While political battles rage regarding root causestotal repair costs and methods of payment, it’s important to remember the Palmetto State’s road and bridge crisis is ongoing.

As of this writing, a total of 231 roads and 105 bridges in South Carolina remain closed in the aftermath of “Floodmaggedon” – this month’s historic rainfall/ flooding event.

That’s down from a total of 368 roads and 159 bridges late Monday – arguably the peak of the crisis.

Oh, and there’s a big line of thunderstorms currently moving across the state that’s going to dump additional rainfall on soaked cities and swollen rivers …

Not good …

Flash flood watches and warnings are in effect all over the state, which was already significantly saturated prior to “Floodmaggedon” dumping several trillion gallons of rain on it this week.

For the official update on road and bridge closings, check out the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT)’s website – although as one of our readers recently pointed out this agency hasn’t exactly been on the leading edge during this historic storm.

Nonetheless, here is their latest information …

There’s only one solution for all this,

Fiscal Conservatism!

Not ONE penny from the federal government for disaster relief.

Instead a tax cut for the wealthy.

You know to”create” jobs!

Maybe!!! Let’s cut state income taxes for the wealthy, and they’ll want to fix the dams with the savings, because they like to fix dams and make people safe. OK – let’s try it. I get a tax cut, and I’ll let you know what dam I’ll fix and when – sometime in 2035.

There is a way to prove to your children that you are a true Democrat. Make them a bowl of ice cream, then eat 90% of it in front of them. That shows them how liberalism works. LOL

I don’t think there is a national problem with refrigerator repair and the government plays no roll, but healthcare is a different story.

I know how to fix it federally subsidized refrigerator insurance.

They are private dams. They should be repaired by private money to pass inspection or breached in a way that they are not a danger to others or damage neighbors property.

easterndumbfuckistan October 10, 2015 at 3:06 pm

Some of the dams are private some used to be private but were taken over by DOT when they built roads across them (Lake Elizabeth Dam, Beaver Creek Dam, Overcreek Dam and Carys Lakes Dam to name a few). Either way at this point the majority of them (especially on Gills Creek) have to be put back because they provide flood control under normal conditions. If the dams aren’t there to slow the water down East Columbia and Forest acres will look like last Sunday every time we have a heavy rain. If the non-entities that own them can’t put them back then The State, County or FEMA is going to have to unless most of the area surrounding Gills Creek in Columbia is abandoned.

Instead of linking to that crappy map that looks like crayon scrawlings, try this: http://info.scdot.org/sites/GIS/SitePages/StormKML.aspx

You need to have Google Earth installed on your computer, and when you double-click the KML file, it starts Google Earth with an overlay that has been updated daily. You can pan and zoom to the finest detail. If GT had google Earth, he could see his single-wide.

Why is it that you liberals jerk-off over a disaster.

Is it because you think it makes the fucking catastrophe Obama is, not look as bad?

Or: is it because if people are in misery, and it’s not because of the total Fuck-Up of the Democrat Party, it takes the pressure off you?
