This is the answer to speedy comfortable travel. It was worked well in China, Japan, and Europe. It beats by far traveling by plane, each time u board a plane u get zapped with a ton of radiation.

California does not have the money to do this......
Business are leaving california at a higher rate than any other state...

Where is the money going to come from???

California is broke..........

Cities like Stockton can't even make their bond payments...
The role state is close to the same....

Business are leaving the sate faster than any other state.....

Even Apple is moving its headquarters to Tx to save the high California state taxes....
