This is great for FL to have it happen. It coast less to lay to sets of track compared to one lane of hi way. CA did it a few years ago and helped move people. Like in Europe you have a hub and the trains move then from a central hub. Orlando airport can still grow while the other have reached there limits. Jets use most of there fuel on take off and landing so leave the short runs to trains.

Bullshit. It's all about using taxpayers money for private enterprise. The guy that did the study is on the board of Rick Scotts Enterprise Florida. He's a Scott mouthpiece. No one is going to take this train. Amtrac already has one and it's never full and costs less. All Aboars Florida is all about being all aboard the taxpayers.

You can thank Barack Hussein Obama for that, recipient of the well-deserved "Lie of the Year".

I see, a 2 year project in Florida providing fewer jobs is a wonderful idea, but the Keystone Pipeline providing 10 times as many jobs is not a good idea. This is an example of Liberal think. No wonder they have no jobs to brag about.

The Keystone pipeline brings nasty azz Canadian sludge to the Gulf Coast for overseas shipment, what's your point?

The Florida Sunrail venture is catching on and just may outperform expectations. Interesting that the Debary station is ranking #2 in ticket sales. Many would have bet against that.

You sound uninformed, stupid actually. What is the 74...your IQ?

Wow... you've made all those posts in only 19 months. That's well over one thousand per month. Thirty plus @ day right?

What do you do when you're not wasting your life away on topix?

Do you post under other names too?

A typical Obama response ... He has been so influential in uniting the nation, as are you. No wonder he earned "Lie of the Year", the nation remains a disaster into his SIXTH year in office, and he still has foul-mouthed ("GFY") worshippers like you.

Obama was handed the Peace Prize, too ... You're such a peaceful person ... the only thing you've been punching is your free Obama meal ticket provided by taxpayers who didn't elect your Liar of the Year ... now go punch something meaningful, you fool.

You stupid ignorant moron. Once again you prove you don't know jack shit about the threads you post on. All Aboard Florida is a Rick Scott approved waste of taxpayers money. The guy from WEG that did the study is on the board of Enterprise Florida, Rick Scott's favorite way of doling out taxpayers money to private industry. They are all Repubs, you mindless idiot.

This isn't the Obama thread, moron. He has nothing to do with any of this.

That's true...he hasn't done a thing to improve the job losses, including that shovel-ready mouth of yours.

Your shovel-ready MSNBC mouth is drooling again. Why don't you go get some more Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton love for yourself, before you go sucking on Rev. Wright's roosting chickens, as usual.
