Just when you think the federal government cannot dream up another way to waste your money, and that of your children and grandchildren, they do. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is here. A government without money steps forward to invest in something most people care little about. Yes, behind door number three is HIGH SPEED RAIL.
The federal government will borrow more money to have high speed rail cars made in . . . wait for it . . . some country OTHER than the United States. We don't make them here. Why not? Well for one thing we don't use them. Amtrack loses a fortune every year. Why? People don't take the train very often. High speed or not there are few places in this country where rail travel makes much sense.
For all of you hope and changers out there, let's hope somebody with the intelligence of at least a common laborer will change our federal government. What is so hard about this concept? We are broke. We cannot start new and wasteful programs. We must cut spending. Cut spending, not waste money we don't have on a project we don't want.
