This is the most nightmarish project in the history of the state and also our country. It's like watching the Titanic sink in slow motion over and over again. People's lives are being DESTROYED in the Central Valley by this group of idiotsboth at the CHSRA and politicianswho are too stupid or greedy or both to pull the plug on this boondoggle of colossal proportions. If it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck, it's a duck. Stop the finger crossing and start the finger pointing. This project needs to be killed. NOW.
I know some people really don't care if government borrows as long as the money is spent on things they like. I love trains. I have ridden in high speed rail in China and its amazing. Even regular speed rail (still relatively fast - up to 88 mph) is pretty cool (Norway, Germany, Poland - although Poland had one train that was really slow). But this California High Speed Rail is nothing more than a boondoggle. My prediction is some people will become rich, even very rich, off of this and we will never (I repeat NEVER) see this thing completed.
