    Put these two together and it's just plain stupid.
    There's so much wrong with this, it's hard to figure out where to begin. So basically kids starve and the poor don't get medical attention so that Brown can show off his shiny new choochoo. Brilliant.
    The other thing that came to my mind was "Where TF is Obama and his green funding?"
    I mean think about it. IF he's going to hand out money for alternative stuff, why not put it somewhere we know will actually produce both jobs and product? I'd much rather see money ear-tagged for green stuff, go to this than the Solyndra's of the world.
    I mean, I've lived in Europe and have friends who were stationed in Japan. In countries with a strong and FAST rail system (as opposed to ours), everyone uses it. Rich, poor, whatever. Other than maybe BART in the Bay Area and the MET in NoVa / DC, Americans haven't really experienced that.
    So as an Independent, I don't have a problem with the rail system as a concept. But I DO have a huge problem with the idiocy displayed by these Democrats, who are willing to bankrupt themseves in order to score a few "Look at me! I'm Green!" political points. Idiots.

    You really think a Massively Expensive High speed Rail project Paid for with Public Funds in a state with a 33 Billion dollar Budget Deficit is an efficient way to Create Jobs?

    lol

    The difference between Europe and Japan and the US is size. The line itself is quite short and based on population density can be quite profitable. In the US, the distances are comparatively immense and sparsely populated.

    TM fully believes that it make sense to create a job of digging a hole and another to fill the hole in because it does create jobs, both for diggers and fillers.

    I would prioritize feeding the poor, NOT taking away their health care and even fixing bridges etc... (which would create obs AND save lifes) over a high speed rail system

    You wouldn't?

    I'm not going say "You really hate the poor, don't you?".
    To project such an extreme on you simply because you wrote something which I find a weak counter and evasive of the point made, would be ludicrous.
