Do you remember the controversy a few years ago when certain individuals tried to claim that it was their brilliance that made their companies great? “You didn’t build that” was the catch phrase. Because most of us know that to be successful, we need viable infrastructure (which means government investment) and dedicated employees- under the guidance of competent (hopefully- even inspired) management.
Just because our government seemingly has no clue that infrastructure is critical, does not mean that business doesn’t. And, they are getting fed up with the inaction. Because, despite the hoopla from the last election, business knows that they don’t do it alone. Their profits rely upon telephones that work, roads that let trucks move, electric power transmission lines that can’t be hacked by terrorists- or just plain crazies.
I admit it. I used to be a Coke junkie. Oh, that’s not true. I was a Diet Coke junkie. 24 bottles minimum- until they came out with 2 liter bottles , and then it was 3, 4, or 5 of them each and every day of the year. (Th is routine was supplemented by 6 cans of Diet Cherry Chocolate pop- for my dinner dessert.)
