Strange Bedfellows - MinuteMen Protesting the NAFTA Superhighway in Iowa (and mention the Trans Texas Corridor)

Just to show that the righties and lefties, Democrats and Republicans, agree on one thing-they do not LIKE the NAFTA Superhighway that is being built across the country, I enjoyed this article about a Minuteman protest in front of the Iowa DOT. Iowa is apparently trying to lull citizens into not looking at how this highway would take all that gorgeous farm land, no doubt just like with Texas through eminent domain. But...

Baer said no presentations were scheduled at the daylong conference regarding plans for a proposed free-trade corridor along Interstate Highways 29, 35 and 94.

But she acknowledged a notice about the Iowa meeting was posted on the Web site of the North American SuperCorridor Coalition, which is promoting the corridor. The Iowa DOT is a charter member of the coalition.

Protesters have been especially worried about Texas Gov. Rick Perry's endorsement of a proposed "Trans Texas Corridor," which would build a megahighway parallel to I-35 within his state. The toll road, twice the width of the existing highway, is aimed at easing congestion on I-35.

Opponents believe the megahighway will be extended through Iowa, taking thousands of acres of Iowa farmland. Iowa DOT officials said there are no plans for the highway in Iowa.

Yeah. Sure.
