You just confused Tony V.

High speed trains work in Japan,  but the Japanese actually use mass transit which is how mass transit needs to be supported.
Gee, what a concept.

If you can ultimately undercut instate flights along the major routes, you have your passenger base and the beginnings of your ROI. Combine that with a piece of the parcel shipping business, and you take a bite out of road traffic before drawing a single passenger or driver.

Your best bet Tony is to turn OC blue. You have 3 months. Get on it bro.

Based on his stances on labor you can only hire Bret Kavanaugh under the table, making him sadly ineligible for a seat on the Supreme Court.

And I bet every one of those people felt personally aggrieved when Sarah Huckabee Sanders was politely asked to leave a restaurant.

To begin with, 80 percent of the children who have crossed over since 2014 are not with parents but are unaccompanied. Only 20 percent come with parents.

LOL. How do these dimwits think this statistic disproves the Trump Administration policy of separating children from parents legally requesting refugee status, and their failure to fully comply with court ordered reunification?

Why do you think they are saying it does?

The title of the piece of garbage you linked to, for a start; "Government data shows the entire "family separation" crisis was built of lies."

And then how it uses that very statistic and others to argue that "the illegals are self-separating from their kids" before shifting to argue that the kids who are left here after being separated will become future gang members.

Illuminating stuff kidcarter8.  Reposting it (twice) saying far more about your deplorable views than shedding any light on the family separation issue.

They lay out the numbers fairly clearly.  Leaves plenty of room for parents separated from their children and having legit angst about it.  Just doesnt describe as high a percentage of the cases as the left would have you believe

"The left" made no claims about percentages from 2014-2016. You can look at the numbers that Trump claimed merited his actions. And the percentages.

Or not.

People in Californa have never shown any particular inclination to get out of their cars. High-speed rail seems an expensive gamble.

Hello Itz ME!

China in South America.]https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/28/world/americas/china-latin-america.html]China in South America.

Obviously this is not a Trump administration based base. The Chinese have been working with certain expectations for years.

But it does illustrate the idea that the US not building trade zones up and down the hemisphere is perhaps the tipping point for the end of the American Influence Era.

Stupid.

I am not Evvie any more.

I am not Evvie any less.

The obsession with who is who remains entertaining and silly.

My "mod type powers" are what they were before the prior crash, which is to say that I can edit and delete individual posts, but I cannot warn or delete members, including spammers.

I can create new fora, to a limited extent, and close fora.

I miss Evvie and it's ambiguous sexuality, cute habit of calling everyone "Mister, " and the amusing references to an aunt.   And,  of course,  the Josh-like smorgasbord of informative links.   Nothing wrong with a repurposed sock.

I would suggest close the unused forums,  which will just attract spammers.   I mean,  do we really need a separate forum for pets or Latin American writers or theater?  Maybe keep three book forums,  say,,  fiction,  nonfiction and creative writing.
