|California's Carbon-Tax?17-05-2019 04:27|
I always thought a Carbon-Tax was a fantasy in America, what a scary disappointment. Then again, California should be ejected from the union, basically act like a separate country anyway, just sucking up our tax dollars, screwing up national elections, keep trying to force their socialist values on real Americans. Over a decade, and they haven't finished laying the first 119 miles of track on their ObamaTrain. Story didn't mention if they even started, or how much progress, other than it was unlikely to complete by 2022, which was set for the entire 529 miles. They only have a fraction of the funding needed, just for this one part, figure to get the rest of the $77 billion from cap and trade tax. Which I thought ironic, tax the polluters, to pay fro a train, that pollutes...
Green logic really confuses me, punish the people that provide jobs, products, strengthen the economy, to build a toy, which few will have jobs, the income, or need to ride a bullet train anyway. What is the 'Carbon Footprint' of a bullet train anyway?

California has already effectively left the Union. They no longer honor the Constitution of the United States or even their own State constitution. I consider them a territory of the United States now.
Canadians, Inuit, Mexicans, Brazilians, Columbians. and U.S. citizens are all Americans. They are all real Americans.
Hey. If they actually COMPLETED the thing, they couldn't continue to suck up money to plan it.
You should read up on what happened when they built the first railroads across the United States. The whole 'golden spike' bit has some pretty sordid history behind it! It was a government project too, complete with all the waste it could muster. Since East and West crews were being paid per mile of track laid, when they met, they just went past each other, building parallel track. It was only after they got caught at it that they chose an arbitrary site to drive the 'golden spike'.
Meanwhile, a privately built line was making its way across the U.S. It was completed using only private funds (no government). It was completed in record time, and make a greater profit than any other railroad. The government had to force price controls upon it so it's own inefficient railroads could compete.
