    Hiring a million mimes trying to get out of invisible boxes would be just as economically beneficial.

    I think California should tear down the Hetch Hetchy Dam so that our furfriends and featherfellows can have more habitat. San Franciscans don't need the pure drinking water from Hetch Hetchy in the Sierras when they can have all of that potable water from their sewage system. Come on San Francisco, do the right thing.

    LOL. Ok the first leg is going to be Fresno to Bakersfield. Its as close to the middle of nowhere as California gets. Second the overruns are going to be well over 4.6 billion. Like triple. Third, I love how this is supposed to be a green project but they are getting a waiver for the environmental impact. Fourth, WHO THE **** PLANTS A TRAINLINE ALONG A FAULTLINE!

    Its just so stupid it needs a new word to define it.

    The only way trains (fast, slow and light passenger) would be economically viable is if cars were taxed out of existence (including for the richie riches) and all the roads were turned into tracks.

    That is exactly how Obamacare works, if you don't ride the damn train you will be taxed. Forcing you to ride it. They don't have to take your car away, just tax you if you don't ride the train. That is what California is going to do in their wisdom to build this 85 billion monstrosity. Big daddy government and all the state government now know all you have to do to force people to do what you want is TAX them.

    And that new word to get you to ride that train is "TAX" you will be taxed if you don't ride it. This is the "force you to do" policy. Tax you if you don't do it. You're now going to see a lot of "Force Taxes" applied to every damn thing they want us to do. And we can thank Obamacare and the SCOTUS.

    They have their place, California just hasn't figured out what that place is yet. Where rail really shines is moving industrial freight, and it's actually a very decent way to get from one major city to another for a lower cost than driving there. The problem stems from California treating rail as competition to cars, which it can never win.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
