    How does that idiot Brown think his state should spend 80 BILLION on a train through the Ca desert when they can’t even keep violent felons in prison or pave their roads?
    Sounds like some good old Chicago-style kickbacks to his construction cronies.
    Typical liberal Democrat!

    Brown is a hopeless incompetent fool…yet what does that say about the voters that stuck him in there? I’d say the same as it says about the voters that voted to stick that other hopeless, lying, incompetent fool, the Obamanation, in the White House.

    Ok, now that the conservative screamers had their frothing, anti-liberal posts, keep in mind that the bullet train was approved by a statewide voter initiative, and so by law had to be implemented. Turns out that the funding was shaky, among other things
    .
    And I suppose conservatives never vote against their best interests, or have been sold pigs in a poke?

    Zuhlamon is correct. Brown doesn’t have a choice.

    Seems he just conferred with the champion of the Executive Order.

    “Mix a snifter of Bill Mauldin, a dash of Jeff McNelly and a very large dollop of common sense, and you begin to get an idea of Lisa Benson”
    Hey, we are out of common sense, throw in the irrational hatred instead.

    If the CA voters approved it then the CA voters get to pay for it. They have no choice.

    Unfortunately, this bill was put on the ballot at the same time 5 years ago when Obama was first trying to become the first black/white Prez.
    That brought out the masses of uninformed voters that thought a fast choo-choo train would be “pretty cool man”.

    Sure got a pig in a poke with Obama, didn’t we? Whether we like it or not, we are stuck with him.

    masses of uninformed voters
    .
    Absolutely correct. Elections have consequences, so it behooves all of us to pay attention to politics, regardless of whether or not we like it.
    .
    Conservatives rue the election of Obama, but I’d have to say that the election of Bush had more dire consequences for the nation.
    .
    Again, pay attention to the fine print, don’t listen to only one point of view, and take personal responsibility for local, regional, state, and national elections.

    California proves that citizens write bad laws. I don’t know of another polity where citizen initiatives can not be modified AT ALL by the legislature. They can’t be modified or repealed except by another proposition, or maybe a court if the law is unconstitutional (like Prop 8).

    It was voter propositions that cut property taxes, among others, and another that requires a 2/3 supermajority for any bill increasing revenue. With the contentious nature of the Assembly (worse than even the US Congress), increasing revenues is impossible.

    Recently, another voter proposition mandated building the bullet train. Unfortunately, there were no associated waivers of the tax restrictions, so Brown MUST build a Bullet Train, and he has to do it from current, overstretched revenues. Don’t blame Gov. Brown—pity him for he has been put in an absolutely impossible position.

    I think it is time to put someone on the FBI & Homeland Security lists under Loco Gringo…

    After thinking long and hard about it I have to concur that bullet trains are not for America. The country is too big. You need hyperloop technology, that would tickle peoples brain. Expensive, yes, even more then bullet trains, but zipping up and down both seaboards at 600 MPH – priceless :-)

    They already have the highest state income tax, sales tax and just about any other kind of tax on living, so why shouldn’t it be difficult to raise them even more?
