Baltimore Mayor at White House today

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is expected to join a group of governors, mayors and Cabinet secretaries at the White House this morning for an event with President Barack Obama highlighting infrastructure investments.

The gathering in the State Dining Room is part of a fresh attempt by the administration to focus attention on Obama's plan to invest $50 billion in highway, rail and runway improvements.

Those on hand will include Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and Delaware Governor Jack Markell, Transportation secretary Ray LaHood and mayors from Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A., Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Columbus and Charleston, S.C.

Among the topics expected to be addressed is a new administration report which says that 80 percent of the transportation infrastructure jobs would be created in the construction, manufacturing and retail trade sectors, and that the work would go to sectors of the economy currently being battered by high joblessness.

Mayor, you are doing a good job. Better than Obama. Ask him to end the futile war in Central Asia and bring a division of battle-hardened troops with Apache and F16 support for duty on the streets of Baltimore. Destroy that "infrastructure". Then put in parks, roads and houses for normal productive people who pay taxes and don't drain taxes. And there are plenty of normal people in every community in Baltimore. Its the abnormal that need some military "excision".

I have been underestimating this Mayor she knows exactly what to do, get out of town away from all of the murders in this city.

You go, SRB!!!
