    Some of the most overcrowded schools in the country due to all the illegal aliens, yet Bozo Brown(D) wants to build an 80 BILLION DOLLAR train to nowhere.

    When Mafio Cuomo was gov of Ny he wanted to shove a Mag-lev train between Albany & NYC. What we need are trains that run on time so people can make connections.

    Read in the LA Times yesterday that the evaluation committee changed the criteria so a company that has a history of fraudulent billing, payoffs and low-balling (then demanding increases for change orders) would win the first construction bid.

    This is simply a way for Govn. to buy, with tax payer funds, more never ending union jobs providing nothing to society. It’s like those stupid walls next to freeways. They’re ugly, no one really wants them, yet every 8-10 years they need to be replaced by union workers. It’s money laundering by the Democrats, the more union jobs they buy the more campaign funds the union bosses kick back.
    It’s all about the money.

    All mass transit does is move people around more cheaply and efficiently than in individual cars. Why would any rational person want that?

    The HST’s in China are a cheap knockoff of the TGV in France and the Shincansen in Japan. Not too long ago one of them got hit by lightning which fried its electronics and it stalled. The next one slammed into it at very high speed because the signals along the tracks were green as if there was no train on the track ahead. Many people died and many others were injured. The crash happened on a long bridge which made rescue difficult.

    Typical conservative !
    Insults, slurs, negativeness, , nothing of any value..
    How about we have the transportation experts determine what we need…, not stupid politicians…even governors….

    @Adrian Snare

    Hey good idea…sort of like when President O formed a commission to evaluate and come up with a plan to reduce the deficit and debt. So called experts. And what happened?

    It was ignored.

    Probably because nobody wants to go to a specific place any time they choose without having to walk down dark dangerous streets.

    Paranoid people wetting themselves with fear should not be the barometer by which mass transit is designed.

    But it has to move them to where they want to go,WHEN they want to. How many people travel between LA-SF daily ?

    Of course not, The greater good wins out and what’s a few dead bodies in the light of that? Mass transit encompasses a great deal more that inter-urban rail.

    @Chillbilly: Hmm, drive 45 minutes to Union Station (Los Angeles) pay parking, ride train for 6 hours (2.5 hr travel + 7 stops), rent car at SFO, drive to destination or drive 6 hours from home to destination. Tough choice.

    @hphundt

    That sounds remarkably like air travel.

    What if you could take you car with you on the train?
