I can't afford to pay $121 dollars to ride that dangerous train to Pixley. I'll take the bus and leave the driving to Gus.

Caltrain to use steam engines on High Speed Caltrain service. San Francisco to San Jose in just 2 hr 12 Min. Hay how about that Caltrain? The last time I rode on Caltrain snails were passing us.

KOOL........Brown made the right choice.

Buying 200 brand new 737 airplanes and constantly flying everyone for FREE between LA and SF might have been FAR CHEAPER in the long run but all those elected Democrats would miss out on so many opportunities to make their families multi millionaires by skimming and screwing the stupidest citizen voting population ever to breath American AIR.

The dumb High Speed Train wasn't enough for Jerry Brown. Now he wants to build a under ground canal. Next he'll want to build a Space Port in Coalinga,Ca. Will somebody put this Obamanut in a care home. Please!
