    If I go to Paris, London or Amsterdam I always take the high-speed train. Much easier, faster than by car or plane and less hassle.

    It doesn't matter what topic is being discussed. Nutters habitually fall on the side of stupid.

    I experienced the speed, efficiency and economy of a nationwide rail system while living in Japan years ago. Opposing a high speed rail program for the United States is nothing more than another way that the disloyal opposition digs in their heels.

    How often have you taken the train state side?


    from LA to san fran is costing of 60 Billion, in tax money. money that will have to be added to the debt or printed, devaluing the dollar even more and putting the screws to the working poor.

    Why would any moral human being support such an atrocity in ever state?

    Your train of logic is missing a few cars.

    When you were a kid, did someone tell you that there is no such thing as a stupid question?

    I'm going to go with never.

    why?

    b/c planes are faster and cars get you where you specifically need to be.

    In the 50's we chose roads and cars over trains b/c it was a smarter and better idea since we have so much open area and still do.

    The EU has little open region

    going back to trains is idiotic and wasteful, you only support it b/c obama told you too

    I prefer trains to planes. I love them, no driving, you get to know people, it's romantic and relaxing.

    Bullet trains are a great idea.

    Train rides are awesome.

    You get to see the country side, meet people from all over, and it's dining out for all your meals.


    romantic? you dirty girl you....


    a bullet train would kill that fun, since the view would just flash by

    not to mention the trillion plus to install them just between major cities

    You will be mocked for that ridiculous comment.
