Public opinion wanes on California bullet train plan, poll shows

Jun 3, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Inside Bay Area

California voters are losing faith in a proposed $68-billion bullet train project, saying the state has higher priorities, they would seldom use the service and they would halt public borrowing for construction if they could, a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll found.

I think there is a lesson here to be learned...a wise lady statement about shopping: "Buy what you need and not what you want."

Request to the Federal Government for needed additional funds for the Bullet Train, meaning California's share to be covered and deferred on the grounds that the State would suffer from the existing financial crisis in order to take advantage of the stimulus.

America is moving backwards. Japan launched their high speed rail in 1964, 48 years ago since than the US has zero HS trains. The US does not have high speed rail, high speed broadband internet nor universal health care system.

I plan to take my first high speed rail ride in Korea next year. Even Thailand is planning a HS rail system which will be completed years before the US even thinks about having one.

Korea, China, Europe every country is jumping on the train. In the US big business wants you to buy a car or fly, forever.

Maybe by the end of the century the US will have one, just maybe.
