Rockin' Down the Highway

In Tampa, Florida, once summer springs the morning rush hour traffic on I-275 South frees up significantly. The retirees from up North have returned to the great white North but the largest benefit is realized from the lack of school buses and kids commuting in their own cars. Using bloated central government math taughtteded in Magnet schools, I've come up with some calculations and observations.

The tax savings from getting rid of school buses could run into the trillions and trillions of dollars. Privatizing the public school system would reduce property taxes by 62%. The money saved from a reduction in homicide investigations per fewer school shootings could pay for the new football stadium that Manhattan needs.
The tax savings enabled from postponing road-widening projects could fund Social Security for 100 years.

So, if you're in Tampa this summer, enjoy the interstate traffic while you can before those yellow monstrosities reengage the highways in numbers that make lovebug swarms seem sparse.

Let freedom ring.
