On Interstate 78 in New Jersey, someone decided that the distance
markers had to be readable from both directions-- on both sides of the
road. Why couldn't one simply look at the markers on the opposite side
of the road if necessary? What earthly purpose does this serve? And why
do they need to be so huge, at that, every 1/10 or 2/10 of a mile?

Where is it written that thees things have to make sense to make sense?

In this day and age of ubiquitous GPS receivers in every hand or shirt
pocket, why do we need signs at all?

Well where I come from they're called mile markers. If they were posting only *one* distance marker in the neutral ground, that means they were being cheap. But what you describe is just non-sensical! Mile markers on the shoulder readable on both sides? Unless the feds went off and had gone crazy with the MUTCDS rules regs again, I'd say some NJ State Highway Department plans reviewer decided that it shall be done, because in case of an accident, the first responders need to know where the nearest mile marker is and in his mind they or the people who called in the accident might look BACKWARDS for the mile marker.

If Trumpf wins, then BOTH carriageways of I-78 will be needed for NYC'ers escaping to Ontario and points west.

I imagine the traffic around the Tower on 5th Avenue is a bit hectic these days. HIS hotel in Chicago needed over 70 cops and a barricaded Wabash bridge over the river last Saturday. Some precincts only have 4-5 cops on night shift by comparison in Chicago.

Well Trump won, possibly due to vote counting fraud in (IIRC) FL, NC, OH and PA. There are too many black box voting machines to trust ANY election results where we do not know the ballots are counted by hand, or at least exist on paper. That being said, if Hillary won the election it would still be fraudulent because the DNC stole primary victories and with them the nomination from Bernie Sanders, who would have CRUSHED Trump in the general election.

PS I doubt there will be an exodus. These idle threats of leaving or seceding arises every time the White House switches parties. They never come to fruition.

I don't trust any of the early voting polling sites. The paper ballot boxes can be stuffed with phony ballots overnight, and the electronic touch screen boxes can be corrupted and hacked. Paper ballots by mail are the only thing I trust.

Are you drunk or high, or both? You really think there was vote fraud in Trump's
favor? And you really think a "free stuff for everybody" socialist could win in
America?

Only in four swing states where the vote tallies were beyond the statistical margin of error in a deviation from the exit polls in favor of Trump. This has been reported on The David Pakman Show (https://davidpakman.com/) that being said, how do we know this did not happen in HILLARY'S favor in other states??? After all, she *did* steal the Democratic nomination from Sanders! So getting four states stolen from HER, and with it the chance to sit behind the desk in the Oval Office, is only PAYBACK! HAHAHA.
