    Good. Bullet trains are a black hole for tax dollars, especially in the hands of idiot Diwmingers in Kalifornia.

    It’s one of them. High speed trains work extremely well in Europe. No reason why our rail system should be so antiquated.

    Europe has much more concentrated populations. California already has multiple highways, trains and air travel covering that route. The train to nowhere would NEVER operate without further heavy subsidies.

    Why is it to nowhere? You’re begging for attention for that. I’ll bite. Wouldn’t they connect several of the largest cities in the country?

    We have a promotion here where you can get solar panels on your roof for free, then cut up some or all of your power bill. Solar has a future in this country.

    Free to me. And it’s much cleaner than most of the alternatives.

    Free to you and you don't give a damn WHO had to pay for it as long as it's FREE to YOU. Same mentality of those seen shopping with food stamps!

    You’re right, but it’s cheaper in the long run for everybody, as it’s more sustainable and cheaper to maintain. It is also cleaner for the environment.

    When you do you taxes do you take any deductions? If so, you’re on “welfare” too.
