A bridge has collapsed in Minneapolis.
At least 50 cars and their occupants plunged more than 60 feet into the Mississippi River when Minnesota’s I-35W highway bridge collapsed at just after 6 p.m. Wednesday.
DHS issued a statement that the collapse “does not appear to be an act of terrorism.” Isn’t it too early to say anything meaningful about what it “appears” to be? Couldn’t they maybe, I dunno, say nothing until they actually know something?
Whether terrorism or a failure on the part of big government, it’s clear to anyone with eyes that government doesn’t work. Private enterprise always does better than the Feds. It’s time to cut the Federal Government down to size.
The timing smells suspiciously like terrorism: the collapse occurred during the height of rush hour. A structural failure smells like incompetance of big government. It may be time to privatize infrastructure construction and maintenance.
In any case, we’ll find out the cause in the coming days. But the known facts at this time are that at least 50 cars are involved and so far 3 people are confirmed dead.
Our prayers are with the victims. They need our support.
