Trains are a stone cold loser and produce nothing but Debt. That's the last thing we need.

Old Jerry is delusional. California is simply a big union and Jerry wants to reward the countless Unions that would be involved in this project. Fortunately the taxpayers in California are awaking to his schemes and will not support his pets.
Where is the money coming from Jerry ?

I am willing to help fund this new train idea on a few conditions.
1} The train must run non-stop to the Mexico border.
2} It must be fully loaded with illegals.
3} Once all the illegals are deported then all the liberals must be deported.

Yep, that might even help balance the California budget since all the deadbeats would be on the trains out of town.

CA DEMOCRATS, YES, DEMOCRATS are

*restructuring the state's welfare program,

*streamlining health insurance for low-income children

*reducing child care coverage & college aid

to fix $15 billion budget deficit.

Ofcourse eliminating the MONTHLY $18,000 rent that taxpayers shoulder for Nancy Pelosi' CA congressional office could also help with their burden.

PLUS RAISING STATE INCOME TAX and SALES TAX with voter approval.

Well now, that sounds like a working plan if I ever heard one.

It is vital that the PelosiCrats are able to force more and more and more Trillions extinction level DEBT on the backs of our children and grand children if they are to cripple California and America once and for all.

Support the Train to No Where. Stop prosperity and hope for the middle class and embrace the hopelessness of unemployment and tax slavery as all your families deserve.

Michelle Headed to London!

by Keith Koffler on June 22, 2012, 4:05 pm

Now this is what I call a grand excursion.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be on her way to London next month, leading the U.S. delegation to the Olympic Games, which start July 27 and end August 12.

I assume she will take her daughters. It’s not clear how long they will be staying, but it’s more than likely they will make a vacation out of it.

Michelle and the girls each year take an exorbitant vacation without Barack to some far-flung locale, mostly at taxpayer expense .

In 2009 they went on a luxury trip to the “Spanish Riviera,” staying in what must qualify as a SIX STAR hotel in gorgeous Marbella.

In 2010 they went to southern Africa, this time throwing in some “official” events so that the safari and other exciting activities they engaged in didn’t look quite so tourist-like. Michelle brought her nephews and her mother along to help represent the United States of America.

It’s not clear why the United States needs to send a delegation to the Olympic games, but nevertheless, Michelle has decided she will bear the burden. The trip is also ostensibly an opportunity for her to promote her “Let’s Move” kids’ fat reduction program, though it’s hard to imagine this will take up a lot of her time.

“The First Lady is working to turn the inspiration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games into action by getting more kids healthy and active,” the White House said in a statement.

Personally, I’d like to have the taxpayers send me to the Bahamas so I can draw attention to the erosion of the coral reef.

. Good idea but, the liberals here would use this to import more illegals thereby continuing to lower the denominator which is what the liberetards and Obama need to stay in power.

Dear, our First Lady is very much respected and will be a much respected representative for our country in the Olympics.

I am sure you spammathongs will tell us it will be costing "us the taxpayers" 20 million dollars a second for her to represent us in this important event.

Don't disappoint us ....

Dearie, there is nothing wrong with our First Lady or any other respected spokeswoman promoting good health and exercise.
