10 Signs That the Ferguson Protests Could Signal the Start of a Communist Revolution In America

By Michael Snyder

The far left is rising in America, and radical communists are being drawn to Ferguson protests all over the nation like moths to a flame. So could Ferguson be the spark that sets off a communist revolution in America? Certainly I am not saying that everyone involved in the Ferguson protests is a communist. That is not true at all. In fact, communists and other far left groups only make up a minority of the protesters. But they have repeatedly been at the forefront of the violence, and they are taking advantage of the anger and frustration caused by the death of Michael Brown to promote their far left radical ideologies. Sadly, they are finding a receptive audience – especially among young people in our poor and disadvantaged communities. Even though Republicans did very well in the last election, survey after survey has shown that our young adults continue to move to the left. For example, one survey taken a few years ago found that 49 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 29-year-old age range have a positive reaction to the word “socialism”. The same forces that fueled Occupy Wall Street are now finding fertile ground in these new protests. So what does all of this mean for the future of our nation? The following are 10 signs that Ferguson could be the start of a communist revolution in America…

#1 Communist protest banners have been prominently displayed at protests in Ferguson, in New York City and elsewhere around the nation.

#2 Flyers declaring that Darren Wilson is wanted “for racist murder” are being distributed by communist groups in Ferguson. In fact, the website address for the “Revolutionary Communist Progressive Labor Party” is right on the flyers.

#3 There were reports that violent communist activists from Chicago were brought into Ferguson by bus last August with the intention of stirring up as much trouble as possible…

KRUGMAN AND ROGOFF: America's Financial Terrorists Go on Tour

By David Stockman

Here are a couple of reasons why Keynesian economists are truly a menace in today’s bubble ridden and debt-impaled world. It seems that both Harvard’s Kenneth Rogoff and Princeton’s Paul Krugman are on the global advice circuit, peddling what amounts to sheer snake oil to desperate politicians and policy-makers who have already buried themselves—-so far to no avail—-in unprecedented waves of fiscal and monetary “stimulus”.

But never mind. The professors have a three part solution, and its more, more……and moar! To make room for more monetary stimulus after six-years at the zero bound, therefore, Professor Rogoff has a truly juvenile solution. Namely, to abolish cash. That’s right, this Harvard windbag proposes to confiscate your kids’ piggy bank and any green stuff that may be left in your wallet.

Meanwhile, Krugman has made a quick circuit through Tokyo, where he apparently was instrumental in convincing Japan’s prime minister to cancel the next installment of the consumption tax increase—a move that was utterly necessary in order to stem the nation’s massive flow of red ink. But why not spend a few more years adding to Japan’s staggering debt burden, which is already at 230% of GDP and rising inexorably in a nation that is fast becoming the world’s foremost retirement colony? After all, Professor Rogoff has now perfected a scheme which will allow central banks to monetize all the debt that even the most profligate government can possibly issue.

PRESIDENT JARRETT: "Senior Adviser" Reportedly Calling All the Shots, Including Those In Ferguson

For those wondering how Barack Obama -- a man seemingly engaged full-time campaigning, fundraising, and rabble-rousing -- could also have the bandwidth to weaken America both at home and abroad, the answer is really quite simple.

The leader of the free world is actually a woman named Valerie Jarrett, a longtime crony of Barack and Michelle Obama, who appears to call all of the shots in the Oval Office.

In the White House, Jarrett has been linked to a wide variety of scandals and other policy debacles.

There are credible reports that Jarrett blocked the attack on Osama Bin Laden's compound on three separate occasions.

Similar reports indicate that she gave the "stand down" order to would-be rescuers in Benghazi on 9/11/2012.

In 2012, she was reported to have led Obama's "secret negotiations" with Iran's Mullahs. Subsequent accounts depicted Jarrett as working with Iran's nuclear experts to ensure the Islamic Republic could continue on its march to build nuclear weapons.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal's Kim Strassel summarized the ramifications of Jarrett's litany of policy failures in stark terms: everyone but her is expendable.

Among those thrown under Jarrett's bus: Christina Romer, Jim Jones, Bill Daley, Leon Panetta, Kathleen Sebelius, Rahm Emanuel, Austan Goolsbee, Larry Summers, Peter Orszag, Vivek Kundra, Eric Shinseki, Keith Alexander, James Clapper and, most recently, Chuck Hagel. Hagel's ostensible replacement, Michèle Flournoy, turned down the opportunity because she didn't "want to be a doormat".

As Strassel asks:

Who would want to work for a boss whose experiments in big government all but guarantee their reputation will be ruined in the aftermath of a bureaucratic collapse? ... And who wants to work for a boss who doesn’t have your back? ... Is it possible to haveany other experience working for Mr. Obama—a boss who doesn’t listen, views everything politically, always thinks he’s right, and whose policies are a recipe for a lost reputation?

Which brings us at last to the Democrats' latest haven for race-baiting, Ferguson.

Jarrett was in contact with Missouri's Governor Nixon in the run-up to the announcement of the Grand Jury's decision.

While Nixon denied the administration pressured him to resist activating the National Guard to put down the violent protests, the White House has admitted that Jarrett was in close contact with the governor during the first 24 hours of violent protests.

Nixon came under heavy criticism for failing to deploy the National Guard to quash the protests, which resulted in massive property damage. It now would seem that Jarrett had a hand in that decision as well.

And who is our crypto-president?

In 2008, The Boston Globe exposed Jarrett's background as the failed chief executive of The Habitat Company, which managed government-subsidized housing complexes in Chicago from 2001 until 2006. Her leadership, if you can call it that, resulted in violations so egregious that many units were deemed "uninhabitable" and eventually the federal government was forced to seize the properties.

That year, Judicial Watch named Jarrett to its "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians" list for her ties to the failed housing complexes and "other shady real estate scandals".

Jarrett's family background is equally troubling. Her father-in-law was a card-carrying Communist who worked with Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.

Jarrett's grandfather Robert Taylor is reported to have served in a leadership role for the Soviet Union's American front group during World War II, when Stalin was still allied with the Third Reich. Taylor's "American Peace Mobilization" was a Soviet initiative designed to keep America out of the war so that Hitler and Stalin could divvy up Europe and Asia virtually unopposed.

So, in short, the first female President is a hard-core Leftist with an abysmal track record for decision-making, a horrifically failed tenure as a chief executive, a stunning inability to learn, and a steely refusal to take responsibilities for her many failures.

But she's the president and you're not.

Which explains why Jarrett -- against all historic precedent -- was given a Secret Service detail for protection.

QOTD: "“Doormat” has been the job description for pretty much every Obama employee. The president bragged in 2008 that he would assemble in his cabinet a “Team of Rivals.” What he failed to explain to any of the poor saps is that they’d be window dressing for a Team of Select Brilliant Political Types Who Already Had All the Answers: namely, himself and the Valerie Jarretts and David Axelrods of the White House.

...The experienced Bill Daley came in 2011 as the chief of staff tasked with repairing Mr. Obama’s relations with the business community. He left a year later, having been stripped of many duties and trashed by the White House to the press. The sage Leon Panetta stepped up as defense secretary in 2011; he too left after 20 months of getting his head patted. The folks who look smartest now are those who fled early, while the fleeing was still relatively good—Rahm Emanuel, Austan Goolsbee, Larry Summers, Peter Orszag, Vivek Kundra.

Who would want to work for a boss who micromanages everything but takes no responsibility when things don’t work out? This president’s playbook for controversy: Deny knowledge, blame subordinates." --Kimberley A. Strassel

No Longer a Nation of Laws

By Richard Larsen

“Congress will not act, so I will,” warned President Obama over the past few weeks as he projected the possibility of acting unilaterally on the issue of illegal immigration. And act, he did.

In an announcement Thursday evening, the President granted amnesty to millions of those who have entered the country illegally. Those granted amnesty, are those who have been in the country for at least five years, have children who are citizens or legal residents, who pass a criminal background check, and are willing to pay taxes and register with the government. The impact could include as many as 6 million people.

The elements of his plan have merit, but to be legal, the proposal must be enacted legislatively, which he could have done easily when his party controlled both chambers of congress during his first term. What he proposes to do is to rewrite U.S. immigration law without the Constitutional or statutory authority to do so.

His actions stand in stark contrast to what he has been saying over the past six years. On March 28, 2011 in a Univision appearance, he declared, “For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates, would not conform to my appropriate role as president.”

On July 25, 2011, he stated, “I know some people want me to bypass congress and change the laws on my own. But that’s not the way our system works.”

On November 25, 2013, he declared, “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in congress, then I would do so. But we’re also a nation of laws.”

FERGUSON'S NATALIE DUBOSE: A Victim of "Social Justice"

By Investor's Business Daily

Starting Over: A black woman who sold cake at flea markets to save enough money to open her own shop saw it vandalized and looted by those who claim white cops are the major problem facing black America.

Natalie Dubose's Ferguson, Mo., business, Cakes & More, barely survived the arson, rioting and looting that followed a grand jury's not indicting officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown. Her tears then turned to sweat as she struggled to fill Thanksgiving cake orders just as she labored to build her business from the ground up.

President Obama once famously told people such as Dubose that she "didn't build that," and that she was the mere beneficiary of a benevolent government and its social engineering.

Well, she did build that, and no one from the government helped her bake her cakes or rebuild her business after rioters smashed one of two large windows and damaged her baking equipment.

"If I can't open my doors in the morning, I can't feed my kids in the evening," Dubois told CNN over the weekend and before the Monday verdict and the subsequent rioting.

"Just don't burn my shop down, don't destroy it," she pleaded before looters decided to "protest" the grand jury's decision not to indict Wilson, who confronted Brown after a strong-armed robbery of Ferguson Market & Liquors.

AMERICA: A Banana Republic Without the Bananas

By Don Boys

Should U.S. taxpayers be expected to finance millions of the 12 million uneducated, unskilled, and often un-American illegal immigrants? I can defend the position that we should not finance legal immigrants? With Obama’s legalization of at least five million illegal aliens, he will turn America into a banana republic–without bananas. While many of the aliens covered are decent, hardworking people, many are not. I think this tragic immigration policy will create political, financial, and cultural anarchy.

Since people from Mexico and South America have lower skills, they are more likely to request public assistance, gorge the public school system, overwhelm the health care industry, and spike the crime reports. Bigotry? Not at all. Just the facts. We know that 15% of California K-12 students are children of illegal aliens. Furthermore, they cost California citizens over 11 billion dollars per year for health, education, and incarceration! No wonder, the state is bankrupt! Did you know that 26% of U. S. Federal prisoners are illegal aliens? They are not in prison for being gatecrashers but for committing crimes in the U.S.!

We should be concerned about illegal and legal immigration since there are 35 million immigrants in the U.S. Harvard economist George Borjas affirmed that “the United States has been granting entry visas to persons who have relatives in the United States, with no regard to their skills or economic potential.” He said that, “Immigrants today are less skilled than their predecessors, more likely to require public assistance, and far more likely to have children who remain in poor, segregated communities.” Obama was correct when he said that immigrants have been a “net plus for our economy and our society,” but is a total fabrication if one looks at the last fifty years or illegal immigration. This new policy will cost us plenty in many ways.

Borjas says, immigration is positively bad news for America’s poor. The wages of America’s high school dropouts have fallen 10% since the 1980s relative to the wages of more educated workers. Borjas declares that about a third of that decline is because of immigration. Almost 30 percent of the immigrants now living in this country are of Mexican origin. Borjas can be trusted with his stats since he is “America’s leading immigration economist” according to BusinessWeek and The Wall Street Journal.

Variety Magazine Hawks Bloodthirsty Communist Revolution

By Lee Cary

It is common knowledge that most of Hollywood is populated with progressive, liberal Democrats, but, apparently, Variety magazine online is partial to the Revolutionary Communist Party USA. signs were carried at several of the Ferguson demonstrations across the nation.

Perhaps some of those carrying the signs assume is a cosmetic company, or just didn’t bother to wonder what is.

Here’s part of the Revolutionary Community Party USA mission statement:

The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA has taken on the responsibility to lead revolution in the U.S., the belly of the imperialist beast, as its principal share of the world revolution and the ultimate aim of communism.  This Party is built on and takes as its foundation the new synthesis of communism that has been brought forward through the body of work and method and approach of Bob Avakian.  Its members are united in their profound desire for a radically different and better world, and their understanding of the need for revolution to get to that world. They have dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to revolution, and on the basis of that they channel their individual abilities and passions to the cause and needs of this revolution.”

All that mumbo jumbo has the ring of “fundamental transformation” – which is another linguistic siren song that attracts useful idiots just as Communist doctrine during the 1950’s attracted Americans with the same intellectual DNA as sign-carriers, along with their close cousins, the fellow travelers.

In the Cold War, these folks were supporters of Communism, but not official "card-carrying members" of a Communist party.

The useful idiots abound among us.

QOTD: "The bitter irony of the Michael Brown case is that if he had actually put his hands up and said don't shoot, he would almost certainly be alive today. His family would have been spared an unspeakable loss, and Ferguson, Missouri wouldn't have experienced multiple bouts of rioting, including the torching of at least a dozen businesses the night it was announced that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn't be charged with a crime.

Instead, the credible evidence (i.e., the testimony that doesn't contradict itself or the physical evidence) suggests that Michael Brown had no interest in surrendering. After committing an act of petty robbery at a local business, he attacked Officer Wilson when he stopped him on the street. Brown punched Wilson when the officer was still in his patrol car and attempted to take his gun from him.

...There is good reason for a police officer to be in mortal fear in the situation Officer Wilson faced, though. In upstate New York last March, a police officer responded to a disturbance call at an office, when suddenly a disturbed man pummeled the officer as he was attempting to exit his vehicle and then grabbed his gun and shot him dead. The case didn't become a national metaphor for anything.

Ferguson, on the other hand, has never lacked for media coverage, although the narrative of a police execution always seemed dubious and now has been exposed as essentially a fraud. "Hands up, don't shoot" is a good slogan. If only it was what Michael Brown had done last August." --Rich Lowry

LADIES: Need a date for Thanksgiving?

Via Craigslist Nashville

It's Thanksgiving. Want to skip that long, insulting conversation about how youre still single? About how your parents really want more grand children? Well, look no further!

I am a 28 year old felon with no high school degree, and a dirty old van one year younger than me painted like Eddie Van Halen's guitar. I can play anywhere between the ages of 20 and 29 depending on if i shave. I'm a line cook and work late nights at a bar. If you'd like to have me as your stictly platonic date for Thanksgiving, but have me pretend to be in a very long or serious relationship with you, to torment your family, I'm game.

I can do these things, at your request:
openly hit on other female guests while you act like you dont notice.

start instigative discussions about politics and/or religion.

propose to you in front of everyone.

pretend to be really drunk as the evening goes on (sorry, i dont drink, but i used to. alot. too much in fact. i know the drill).

Start an actual, physical fight with a family member, either inside or on the front lawn for all the neighbors to see.

I require no pay but the free meal i will receive as a guest!

Hat tip: BadBlue News.


Perhaps the infamous economedian Paul Krugman can explain the amazing dichotomy between the Obama and Reagan recoveries. Or perhaps not; propagandists make lousy historians.

Nearly one in five U.S. households will celebrate Thanksgiving on food stamps this year... Back in fiscal 2000, there were 106,061,000 households in the United States and, according to a USDA report published in November 2012, there was a monthly average of 7,335,000 households—or 6.9 percent—getting food stamps that year.

As of this August, according to the most recent data released by USDA, there were 22,729,389 households on food stamps. That equaled 19.75 percent of 115,048,000 households in the country at that time...

Gee, it seems so surprising that a radical leftist community organizer would make things worse rather than better.

FERGUSON: The Morning After Lesson

By Lee Cary

When the progressive welfare state goes broke, some large African-American neighborhoods in Big Blue Cities will be left to burn by the police.

On the morning after the Grand Jury No True Bill decision was announcement, it was clear that the policing authorities followed a planned, minimum-response strategy. They offered little resistance to looting and property destruction, perhaps in order to avoid bloodshed and media scrutiny.

The outcome: On the morning after, there were few, if any, reports of serious injuries. No media videos went viral showing police physically subduing looters. No ambulances were filmed loading bleeding rioters or police. Just the burned and broken evidence of an orgy of looting and property destruction.

The African-American communities in the Big Blue Cities should note the absence of law enforcement in Ferguson the night after the Grand Jury decision.

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Ranking Member C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger (D-MD) issued a much-anticipated “Investigative Report on the Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Facilities in Benghazi, Libya, September 11-12, 2012” late on Friday November 21, 2014 that has administration supporters crowing—and eyewitness, on-the-ground operators pushing back forcefully. A close comparison of the report and other previously released information about the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi shows that the operators have good reason to cry “foul.” While clever wording just might give Messrs. Rogers and Ruppersberger plausible deniability on a witness stand, the overall intent of the report is clear: exonerate the Intelligence Community (IC), and, by extension, the Obama administration, of responsibility for intelligence failures prior, during, and after the terrorist attack that took the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

In simple terms, this report is a whitewash of the CIA, which, along with the State Department, was responsible for arming and assisting the very jihadist militia groups that rose to power in the first place during the 2011 rebellion against Muammar Qaddafi, and who later murdered our people in Benghazi. The biggest intelligence failure of all that is never mentioned is the failure to understand the essential hostility of the jihadist ideology of the groups with which our government was dealing.

One of the most riveting revelations from members of the CIA security team who were at the Annex the night of 11-12 September, 2012 concerns the repeated refusal of CIA Chief of Base ‘Bob’ to allow them to go to the rescue of the besieged Americans at the Special Mission Compound (SMC). While the Rogers report is adamant that “…the Committee found no evidence that there was either a stand down order or a denial of available air support,” that statement is directly contradicted by accounts of events from Mark “Oz” Geist, Kris “Tanto” Paranto, and John “Tig” Tiegen. These three members of the Annex security team are co-authors of “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi,” and have spoken out publicly in multiple media appearances. The Rogers Committee interviewed all three of them, as well as additional members of the Annex staff, so there’s no question about its familiarity with the actual sequence of events that fateful night.

MARK LEVIN: As Ferguson Burns...

By Mark Levin

Ferguson burns and violence has been unleashed thanks to the reckless liberal media, the lawless administration (especially Eric Holder) exploiting the shooting to smear police departments across the nation, phony civil rights demagogues, race-baiting politicians, and radical hate groups.

The lies about why and how Officer Darrin Wilson shot Michael Brown started on day one and never ended. The indisputable facts are that Brown was shot because he assaulted a police officer, attempted to take the officer's pistol resulting in two close range gun shots in the police cruiser, and then turned around and charged the officer as he was being pursued. The entire event was precipitated by Brown earlier stealing cigars from a local store and assaulting the owner.

What we are witnessing now is the left's war on the civil society. It's time to speak out in defense of law enforcement and others trying to protect the community and uphold the rule law.

HEROES OF BENGHAZI AGREE: House Intel Report a "Pile of Crap"

By Investor's Business Daily

Scandal: The Benghazi annex security team that fought on the building's rooftop to save its lives and those of others begs to differ with the House Intelligence Committee claim that there was no stand-down order.

To say that Kris Paronto, Mark Geist and John Tiegen, three CIA contractors who on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, battled with terrorists from the roof of the CIA's Benghazi annex building, do not agree with conclusions of the House Intelligence Committee report released Friday is putting it mildly. In a tweet, Paronto called the report "a pile of crap."

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham was equally eloquent during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," agreeing the report was "full of crap."

"I know Benghazi pretty well," he said Sunday. "I don't think that the report is accurate."

Neither do we, for it flies in the face of testimony from the three CIA operators and Gregory Hicks, U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya, who were on the ground in Libya on that fateful night.

The report by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said the committee "found no evidence that there was either a stand-down order or a denial of available air support." Yet Paronto and his teammates who were there tell a quite different story.

OUR BELOVED IRS: Prisoners file $1 billion in bogus tax returns

By M.D. Kittle

Inmates and their accomplices filed $1 billion in fraudulent tax returns in 2012, a six-fold increase from 2007, according to a report released Tuesday by the Internal Revenue Service’s auditor.

The audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration discovered the IRS has yet to comply with previous recommendations to shore up fraudulent activities so costly to taxpayers.

“Refund fraud associated with prisoner Social Security Numbers remains a significant problem for tax administration,” the report states. “The number of fraudulent tax returns filed using a prisoner’s Social Security Number that were identified by the IRS increased from more than 37,000 tax returns in Calendar Year 2007 to more than 137,000 tax returns in Calendar Year 2012.”

The dollar amount involved jumped from $166 million to $1 billion in fraudulent returns to inmates.

TIGTA found the IRS hasn’t yet shared fraudulent prisoner tax return information with federal or state prison officials. The auditor found the required annual prisoner fraud reports to Congress haven’t been delivered in a timely fashion and that reports do not address all aspects of prisoner fraud.

REVCOM.US: The Message is in the Signs

Lee writes:

The message is in the signs, which are basically advertising.

Study the photos of demonstrations in Ferguson, and about Ferguson across the U.S. and it becomes clear who is driving the new civil rights movement.

REVCOM.US is just one of a multitude of alleged players. But then, the question really is: Who’s paying for the signage, and how are the signs being distributed.

The MSM is not asking that question.

Of course not, Lee. The media actively foments violence. It's "newsworthy", after all.

QOTD: "Nearly a hundred years of the supposed “legacy of slavery” found most black children being raised in two-parent families in 1960. But thirty years after the liberal welfare state found the great majority of black children being raised by a single parent.

The murder rate among blacks in 1960 was one-half of what it became 20 years later, after a legacy of liberals’ law-enforcement policies. Public-housing projects in the first half of the 20th century were clean, safe places, where people slept outside on hot summer nights, when they were too poor to afford air conditioning. That was before admissions standards for public-housing projects were lowered or abandoned, in the euphoria of liberal non-judgmental notions. And it was before the toxic message of victimhood was spread by liberals." --Thomas Sowell

Yesterday's 60 Minutes Report on America's Infrastructure Was a Complete and Utter Scam

By Jim Quinn

I rarely if ever watch 60 Minutes, as they have been kissing Obama’s ass since before he was elected in 2008. They are part of the left wing media and are now a joke when it comes to investigative journalism. Last night it came on after the football game I was watching and the opening story was about the infrastructure crisis in this country. I thought I’d give it a chance. After five minutes of propaganda, mistruths, false story lines and interviewing an ultimate insider hack lobbyist for corporate America, I turned on a more realistic truth telling show – The Simpsons.

Every time a politician or media pundit opens their mouth about infrastructure you know they are lying. Democrats and Republicans are equally guilty of misleading the public about this issue. They know the sheep aren’t paying attention and will believe their bullshit. The mantra is always the same. We’ve neglected our roads and bridges and now they are dangerous. The Federal government must do something about this crisis. They need more money. Somehow we managed to not spend any money on our highways for the last 30 years. The politicians and the media insist we need a trillion dollar infrastructure plan to save our highways and bridges. Amazingly, these politicians and media outlets are supported by contributions and advertising revenue from the corporations who would benefit from a massive infrastructure bill.

The reason our roads suck isn’t because there isn’t ENOUGH money. It’s because politicians chose other things to spend OUR money on. Here is the deal. The states spend in excess of $200 billion per year on their highways. The Feds spend another $50 billion of your money on roads. Most of these funds are extracted from your pocket through gasoline taxes and tolls at the State and Federal level. How come $250 billion per year isn’t enough? The Keynesian morons like Krugman and Larry Summers are sure a multi-trillion dollar infrastructure plan paid for with your money will stimulate the economy and save America. If I recall, the $800 billion Obama porkulus infrastructure program was about shovel ready jobs. How did that work out? The fact is the federal government is only responsible for 140 thousand miles of road or 3.4%, largely roads in national parks, military bases and Indian reservations.

Roads are a State and local issue. Local governments are responsible for maintaining and improving 3.17 million miles of road or 77.5% of the total. State highway agencies are responsible for 780 thousand miles of road, or 19.1%.
