Cameron Could someone please point Congresscritters to the direction of the nearest hobby shop in D.C.? They could buy trains that run efficiently with their own money and the rest of us could be left alone. Koala Second laugh! Thanks guys. Tallyman Liberal Progressive guilt over using automobiles is assuaged by building trains. Romney will be wonderful telling how bad Obamacare is and how good Romneycare is. Do we have a government of laws or of men? The specific code law violated by the Wisconsin judges is b) No judge or candidate for judicial office or judge-elect may do any of the following: 1.

RightSide Now Obama Wants To Build A $5 Billion Bullet Train From Las Vegas To Nowhere Ol’ Harry’s payback for doing nothing in the Senate Two points: 1) There has been talk of a train to Las Vegas for at least 35 years. It was a notion I first heard while living in Riverside, CA. It was too expensive and undesirable then and I expect the same holds true now. 2) as previously suggested, the liberals are driving up gas prices deliberately to make boondoggles like this this one seem feasible. Triple (at least) the estimated price tag and decrease by half (at least) revenue and the numbers may approach reality.If construction ever starts it’ll be a political decision pure and tainted. Igor Never mind the inconvenient fact that ALL high-speed rail systems built all over the world are heavily subsidized, vastly over budget, and have low ridership, Never mind that it’s always Gubmint that decides it would be a good idea to build one despite non-biased studies that say they are unworkable economically and the public is not exactly clamoring for them. Never mind that the system that decides to build them is corrupt and uses the project as payoffs for political reasons. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead! Never mind. OldnyFirefighter Man oh man, you hit that nail right on the head. I couldn’t have said it better. Excellent observation & post.
