TXDOT MURDERS 100 YEAR OLD PECAN TREE

I'm not a tree hugger but these idiots who took down and mulched this 100 year old tree must be the stupidest people in the world. Let see it's the only tree on the damn road for a mile? Maybe somebody wanted it there dummies!? The roads name is Pecan Tree Road dummies! I had seen the tree and new just by looking at it that it must have been an old trail marker. I had no idea it was that old. I do know that highway 77 was part of the old Texas Military road from the 1840's . So who knows how that pecan tree go there. I agree with Mr Jeff Browning who said "It was a tree SWAT team, there were so many people working on it. In this day and age of air pollution, when someone cuts down a tree like that, it’s a crime against humanity." TXDOT claims it's contractor was not told to cut down the tree and that TXDOT marks trees to be cut down with orange "X" marks and this tree was not. The contractor claims that they were told to use their best judgment. They say they can plant another tree there. I guess they still miss the point!

In the real world, people get fired over issues like this. But at TxDOT, they can steal your land, toll freeways, tear down historic markers, and even make a $1 Billion dollar accounting error, and not a soul is EVER fired.

I'd have to say we probably have the best road systems in the world but it does seem that has led to an all powerful machine called txdot. This transcorridor thing is scary. I also wonder why txdot waits so long to put up traffic lights in dangerous spots but they are just so excited to get working on tollways. There is an intersection in front of my store at ,ironically, Pecan street and E Ennis avenue where there is a wreck every month and all day you hear people peeling out and the other people breaking trying not to hit the peeling out person who is trying to take a left on to E Ennis Avenue. You'd think Walmart and Steve Howerton would do something to protect their citizens/patrons

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
