    That doesn't even make any sense. The Space Program has made countless contributions to society as a whole, and continues to do so. A train is a one trick pony.
    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.

    That depends on what you mean by profit.

    Should it make an operating profit: YES

    Let's consider the logical alternative, widening CA-99 and I-5

    Should it make an operating profit: NO
    Should it make up all the costs of construction: definitely NO

    Why rail is held to such a double standard, I'll never know. But feel free to complain about it while driving on California's 39% user fee paid roads.

It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Surely, you jest.

    Just in case you're serious, here is some more brainwashing:
    So far, NASA has 1,500 spinoff success stories and counting. Even the term "spinoff" was invented to explain the benefits of NASA's contributions to the world at large. NASA publishes an annual publication titled Spinoff that highlights that year's technology that was transferred to and further developed or utilized by the private sector. The free dissemination of information and technologies attained by NASA creates not only practical applications to society but new jobs and industries.
