when you have idiots riding the train and idiots driving the train and idiots in all the offices you have yourself an idiot train.If these people had a responsible white person to run this system, cut all the fat out of the system, have a PLAN to make the system sell advertising and hike fares to a point where the train was making a PROFIT, it would be great.As long as you have the rif-raf you currently have in place, its going to lose money every day it runs.I say shut it down if it cant pay its OWN WAY.If people do not want mass transit enough to MAKE IT PAY FOR ITSSELF, then let them buy a car and drive to work.Atlanta does not HAVE to have a bus service and a train.Have you ever watched the idiots jumping the turnstyles to ride free?WHy are these poeple not SHOT in cold blood? they are nothing but thugs anyway

Because ditching a train fare is not an offense punishable by death.

.....you assume that because I do not think people should be shot because they ditch a train fare means I am on welfare? Well I am not nor have I ever received any assistance program. I have never not had a job. I just don't think ditching a train fare is as big a deal as murder or child molestation.

Atlanta has proven it can't run a profitable train system, and now Mayor Mohammad Reed wants the state to have a train running between Atlanta and Savannah paid for by not only Atlanta but all the tax payers in the state. He should allow history to be his friend, the Nancy Hanks did this and closed because it was not economically feasible due to lack of passenger interest. Does the term "economically feasible" mean anything to socialist democrats?

"Burrney Madof" was a Jew. Jews, especially Zionist supremacists like Bernie don't consider themselves to be White. You stupid imbecile. You probably think the Fed and Wall St. is controlled by a bunch of rich "white guys" too. Ever heard of Goldman Sachs, douchebag? Well your boy Obongo's biggest campaign contributor was the Jewish BANKSTERS from Goldman Sachs. Damn son, you sure are ignorant.
