On a plane I once had to sit next to some fat guy who picked his nose, rolled up the booger and placed it on his tray. It was there for 3 hours, big and gross. I was sandwiched between him and the window and there were no empty seats to move to, as is typical these days.
YEAH I'M 6'2'', 270LBS. AND OLD. IT'S FUNNY, I remember when the food was edible, drinks were free, stewardess' were nice. They welcomed you. NOW..MMMM last time I said was the last time. They searched me. then put me in the ge made machine that lets everyone see my tiny weiner. sad. I don't care about the tiny reveal... I laugh. My wife did not. I read about a 70 year old woman cavity searched. I believe it.
NOW AIR TRAVEL ALL ARE TREATED LIKE CRIMINALS. NEVER AGAIN. GO AMTRAK.. till the bullet is built. Then I'll travel AND SPEND. BIG BUCKS. till then, my wallet is shut.
Build one where there is a lot of traffic on some Interstate highway in a place that is fairly flat and does not have a lot of infrastructure that would need to be disturbed. Then build the fastest one on the planet. We're America, we can do this.
The Bullet train is the biggest scam by your kind. It will never be able to support itself. They also had to add thirty minutes to the trip of that one high speed train to Vegas, they lied about it earlier. The jobs you talk about are not permanent the cost of building that turd you could finance a trip to Mars. The US isn't a tiny nation like those of Europe and Japan.
Part of the answer is to get the gov't out of the private sector.
Gov't has been nibbling away at the private sector and increasing social programs since FDR got social programs on a roll..
Shame, shame and shame MO . . . .
