Ratcliffe... let me buy you a clue...

R.G. Ratcliffe had an interesting piece in the Chron assaulting the conspiracy theories that purport to reveal the existence of plans to create a North American Union. He spends an inordinate amount of time talking about the conspiracies and gathering quotes from 39%'s Spokeskitty, Robert Black. What he should have been doing was researching the ports now under construction on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Or the roads leading from them and connecting them to the border with Texas near Laredo and the future southern terminus of 39%'s TTC-35.

He might have also spent some time looking into the intermodal facilities planned for Dallas and Kansas City. He might have learned that while the NAU may be a long way off, the infrastructure is already being built for it. That's the real story that R.G. missed while searching for conspiracy theory comedy.

Now, I'm all for infrastructure and commerce. I'm not for no custom checks from the Mexican Pacific Coast all the way up to KC.

Seriously, R.G., let me buy you a drink at LaLa's sometime and fill you in on what you're missing. We can get the folks at Eye on Williamson to join us. They certainly get it.
