    I heard a little bit about this on the radio this morning. The author of this article was being interviewed and he is convinced that this superhighway is a major step toward creating a "North American Union" out of Mexico, the U.S., and Canada.

    OK, so maybe there's nothing sneaky going on here, but the American press seems to have been fairly quiet about this project. This morning was the first I had ever heard of it.

    If they are truly planning to bring in massive amounts of goods from Mexico bypassing the U.S. ports, wouldn't the U.S. union leaders be going ballistic about this already?

    Union membership is down.

    What's actually going on with NAFTA is pretty complicated, but basically a few people are making a lot of money, and most are getting by (treading water) and many are falling behind.

    Free market is an illusion.
