    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?

    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.

    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.

    That sounds remarkably like air travel.

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

    A company can be rapidly bankrupted if there isn’t a change order clause in their contract. If you have a job 75% completed and the customer changes his mind about something, you can be in big trouble without that change order provision. What are you supposed to do if you have to tear up 20% of what you have completed? This is particularly important when dealing with the government. They do everything by committee and make changes constantly. It’s why so many government projects have cost overruns and why initial bids on government contracts are so high.

    Actually the first 10 BILLION DOLLAR stretch goes from Bakersfield to Fresno.

    Yep, nowhere.

    A recent report said it would COST taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year in losses due to low ridership.

    I think Ca has more serious problems.

    If Amtrak needs subsidies to operate in the densely populated Northeast Corridor, what possesses the state of California to believe that their HST will be self supporting?

    “We are here to stay”?

    When you say “we”, do you mean YOU are here illegally?
    If so, then no sir, you are the one that needs to go somewhere else. How about going to your own country until you complete the process like millions of other people with integrity and character have done for decades.

    If I want to move to France, should I just sneak in there and not follow their laws? Of course not.

    I have no problem with immigrants, hell we’re gonna need a ton of them once ObammyCare kicks in and Americans have to wait a year or more to see a doctor.

    Just do it the right way and we’re good.
