Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Commuter rail and inter-city passenger rail are two different things.
None of the cities you mention generate enough income from fares to cover the capital and operating costs of the systems, assuming that the costs are even understood.
SEPTA (Philadelphia), for example, receives huge subsidies from the state.
Or the State could double the width of the Schuykill Expressway. When looking at the cost of mass transit, you need to consider the cost not to have it.

He gets out, starts following her
He starts chasing her
She knees him, she pepper sprays him,

She is the aggressor, and he is justified in
shooting her in "self defense"
You're not actually comparing this scenario to Zimmerman walking to meet the police in his neighborhood after numerous robberies by young black men and seeing a young black man acting suspiciously, are you?

Liberal dyslexia. You must have it too. You depicted a completely different scenario and tried to fit it with your brainwashed brain.

Media Warning Signs For The Grand Old White Republican Tea Party

The Nielsen ratings for July are coming out soon and there is a developing trend in television viewing that portends problems for Republicans. Variety is reporting that…

“Univision is on pace to end the July sweeps in the numero uno spot, a milestone for the U.S. Hispanic network. Market leader expects to dominate July sweeps primetime among both Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34 demos, in broadcast or cable.”

To be clear, this is not a ratings win among Hispanic networks or a particular genre of programming. It is the top spot for all television programming in the most important audience demographics. They beat ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX.

...Republicans, and their preferred media, are bleeding supporters in key groups that they have already conceded are essential for future victories. Hispanics, youth, African-Americans, and women, are all growing constituencies. But they are being left behind by an increasingly extremist and narrow Republican Party that is only responsive to older, white, Tea Partiers.

Why not just base fares on the cost of service?

The highest recorded temperatures were in 1913.
And let's not forget the Ice Age.
The magnetic poles are separating. It's also a natural phenomenon like cyclic climate patterns - both being the most plausible causes for the recent and unusual storms, severe winters, tornados and present heat wave.
We are talking highest average temperatures for a year.

Not the temperature at a single point in time at a particular location.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) in a 2010 letter requested that then-Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Douglas Shulman deeply investigate 501(c) non-profit political organizations.
The letter called on Shulman to “survey major 501(c)(4),(c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations involved in political campaign activity to examine whether they are operated for the organization’s intended tax exempt purpose and to ensure that political campaign activity is not the organization’s primary activity” and to “to determine whether they are acting as conduits for major donors advancing their own private interests regarding legislation or political campaigns, or are providing major donors with excess benefits.”
In his own letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens noted,“Considering the invasive questions the IRS was asking the targeted organizations, it appears that Sen. Baucus got exactly what he asked for, which was a witch-hunt.”
Baucus’ letter also instructed Shulman that “Possible violation of tax laws should be identified as you conduct this study. Please report back to the Finance Committee as soon as possible with your findings and recommended actions regarding this matter.”
Baucus specifically referenced a Sept. 16, 2010 Time article,“The New GOP Money Stampede” reporting that “Democrats fear [what] could be a $300 million Republican spending blitz this year.” The story detailed allegations that local tea party groups were actually “shadow Republican groups formed by longtime party officials.” The article referenced the tea party, but also American Crossroads, American Action Network, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as forming a wider campaign front for the 2010 Republican election campaign effort, financed “in the form of secret undisclosed contributions.”
Baucus also referenced “a group transforming itself into a non-profit under 501(c)(4) of the tax code,” ensuring, as the Time article put it, that the group would “not have to publicly disclose any information about its donors.” That “group” Baucus referenced was actually Crossroads GPS.
“The Time article Baucus so prominently referenced was all about the financing of Republican election efforts and right of center political and advocacy organizations,” Mehrens noted in his letter, adding,“It did not scrutinize any left-wing groups. Nor did Baucus include in his letter to Shulman any footnotes to articles that detailed Democrat campaign activities or left of center groups. The implicit task was to investigate the political right from start to finish. And that’s exactly what the IRS did.”
Yesterday, Baucus issueda statement suggesting “Targeting groups based on their political views is not only inappropriate but it is intolerable, promising a “full investigation into this matter by the Senate Finance Committee.”

Senator Max Baucus said he believes the IRS scandal is just beginning and that "a lot more" damaging information will be revealed, likely at congressional hearings, stating "I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly. It's broader than the current focus."

Baucus said he suspects more will be revealed in the next several days or over the next couple of weeks.

Where were you in the past 12 years?
And, here's a link so you can learn how the government actually works, to include things like, oh, say, how the government pays for itself:
http://usconstitution.com/
Here's a link to see the actual debt and deficit numbers:
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/
You will find the total debt increased from 5 to 8.5 trillion dollars between the time the Arabs declared war on the United States to the day the Republicans turned over all the purse strings of government to the Democrats.
You will also find the Republicans gave to the Democrats a 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion annual deficit.
Please tell us what the Democrats have done to that deficit and debt since.
And, tell us about the plan you have to stop borrowing money to pay for the government.
Budget deficit. You know when you run a couple of wars off budget.

If she came back to him, broke his nose, kncking him down and was then pounding his head against the sidewalk, then she would deserve to be shot.

much bigger since Baucus found out that progressive groups were also targeted.

You people are hopeless.
Unless you admit to an Ice Age, there's no point in talking about being hopeless. It's you obviously.

The 25 warmest years on record were from 1921 to 2006 with temperatures averaging between a few degrees of each other.

The years 1998 and 1934 were almost tied.

Six were in the 1930s.

Two were in the 1950s.

One was in the 1940s.

Twelve were more than a decade ago.
