    This toon could be Obama(non)Care.
    Constantly delayed, way over cost and another Democrat power grab.

    Great book.
    The Future is not what it used to be.
    Where’s my Wheel In Space, as shown in Elysium?
    (Actually, it was in 2001: A Space Odyssey first.)

    Having visited many places where rail really works and moves hundreds of thousands, even millions, daily, I believe that in it and its value. All transport has hazards, especially in areas prone to earthquake or flooding.
    Resisting proven ideas because of initial costs or potential hazards only makes learning from the mistakes of others more valuable. My grandfather said intelligent people learn from their own mistakes, but wise people learn from the mistakes of others.
    Sadly, it seems that greedy people just repeat the mistakes and protect themselves from being sued for doing so.
    Respectfully,

    The daily “good read”, from C.
    Or…itelligence runs in the family..
    Now, for me , I think I have have figured things out…
    Conservatives live in fear….thus little or no innovation results…..
    We need more liberals…for our nation to advance..into the 20th century….YESIMO, we are that backward….

    You just can’t blame the conservatives for this. Think about what is going to power the train. Cali won’t let you build new power plants necessary for it. No nuclear, coal, or wind power. Solar won’t be able too. Then getting all the permits and right a ways to place it. And some how it will endanger some species that isn’t going to survive any how. It will never happen because of there own bureaucracy.

    -———-
    The EPA, liberals taxed,fee’d,and fined the innovation right out of the country to China.Then borrowed money to keep making their payroll and excempted all their Big liberal contributors from Obamacare.49% pay taxes,51% don’t.

    Adrian…..really…“Conservatives live in fear”. I’m conservative. It’s a lifestyle. It includes things like recycling, solar energy, walking instead of driving, a budget and living within it, right down to measuring a serving size of green beans to not waste food. It includes fishing license and hunting license to support conservation. And volunteering goods and services to the local community outreach programs. Fear? Of what?

    You seem to be unable to recognize what is good in people and only see the little things that tick you off.

    Check out this list of “conservatives” and tell me which one is not innovative….LOL

    RT, I’ve got a metaphoric dollar here that says they were mostly all in Europe or possably coastal China. Both are areas with similar land mass to say New England in the US where we have similar high volume rail transport of people.
    Now talk about areas much bigger, and the cost for creating that new inferstructure goes though the roof.
    See Megan McCadle on the high speed rail in China.
    It’s not that it can’t be built, it’s that outside of high density areas like Europe or the NE US it is not cost effective.
    and ignoring the quake issue how about there are multiple daily flights that would cost less then rail tickets every day between most of the cities in CA.

    What is it about liberals(read stateists) that they keep wanting to impose 19th century tech onto a 21st century world. dense urban cores, large factory work, and street cars, when everyone else wants just the opposite. note suburbs still are more popular and have more growth then urban centers even among hipsters (when they have kids)

    Why have a high speed train if it is going to stop every 75 or 100 miles. You will have slow down time before the stop and then have to get up to speed after starting. Tis makes sense ONLY if the train will be non-stop between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
