I fully support whatever California wants to do as long as it implodes more quickly.

Nice. Central Valley farmers...

If you've driven I-5 lately, you'll notice that since Republicans took the House, the signs changed from "Stop the C0ngress Created Dustbowl" to "Stop the Dem0crat Created Dustbowl."


So yeah,... Central Valley farmers are dumber than Snooki after huffing paint.

ShivaHVishnu: So why don't you join me in my effort to have all the non-coastal counties secede and form their own state? You smart guys on the coast could have your own state, call it "Pacifica." and we could be California. Then you wouldn't be associated with us rubes out here and could say you're not from CA. It's a win-win. We could grow all the food you need, cut all your lumber, and maybe build a few refineries to provide you with gas for your Prius. I think it's a potential Utopia you're looking at.


1) Learn to use the quote feature properly. Formatting is friendly.
2) If we handed over inland control to you, it would be about a week before Yosemite would be "Brought to You By Mountain Dew and Taco Bell". We can't even let you guys have pseudoephedrine and bleach without you finding a way to hurt yourselves.

jtown: I'm in favor of just about anything that stops that boondoggle from getting off the ground. And fark all those jackass citizens who voted for spending billions and billions of dollars on a project that could never possibly be self-sufficient when the state economy was already proper farked. Sweet, merciful crap, people are stupid.


GIS Boondoggle... I never knew this was what that was called.

You know, California would be a wonderful place if only everything to the left of the San Andreas Fault simply fell into the ocean. And think of the SyFy Movie we would get out of it. What I like to call a Win Win Situation.

0MGWTFBBQ: FTFA:

Authority officials plan to start building the first 130 miles of track in the Central Valley by the end of the year. That $6-billion section, which will not be equipped to operate trains, is supposed to be finished by 2017 to avoid losing federal funds.

Umm, $6 billion and it is not equipped to operate trains? WTF are they building -- lego tracks?


I wonder if this is just train bed preparation, or being built without the signals in place yet. Either way, check out my previous post about the clusterfark. Also, $68 billion estimate is off, it is actually closer to $100 billion.

Farking hell not this again.

How about some competently operated normal-speed trains first? Oh no. We've got to have SUPPER DUPER AMAZING BULLET TRAINS! To more quickly spend all of the money, I presume.

On behalf of my fellow Californians, I'd like to thank the economy for giving non-Californians another joke besides "waiting for the Big One so California will fall into the ocean."

That said, despite my total support for rail, CA high speed rail is a clusterfark in the making. The project's only selling point is getting you out of Fresno quickly.
