Money pit of mismanagement and clear theft by Democrats. No wonder they own everything in ca, when voters let them steal hundreds of billions unchecked.

Clearly taxes are too low, they can’t take trillions yet.

Homelessness
Water shortages

But throw all your money and children to build a choochoo. Too bad it’s just between sf and la, and not one way out of CA.

This reminds me of an old Soviet joke:

During an all-hands meeting in a Soviet collective farm (a.k.a. kolhoz) the Head of the kolhoz announces: "Comrades! As you all know 2 years ago we planted 200 acres of potatoes, but it was all eaten by the Colorado beetle. Last year we planted 400 acres of potatoes and it was again eaten by the Colorado beetle. So, this year I propose we plant 800 acres of potatos. Let's hope the fucking beetle fucking choke on it!"

Pensions
Unions
Government vacations
Corruption
Bureaucracy
Sleeping workers
Workmens comps

A helicopter service would have been cheaper and faster.

It’s political payback and nothing else. If it ever gets built, it won’t have been needed.

That money should have gone for a light rail system in Los Angeles, something that’s truly necessary.

Jerry Brown is a corrupt asshole and anyone that voted for him has rocks for brains.
