High Speed Rail. Unstoppable? I Think Not

The cost in dollars or life

Why has NO one said anything about the cost to implement  security for this new system of travel?

Clearly the federal Government has the whole air travel security thing down right? Really that’s not to hard to deal with, make customers go thru a  horrible screening process and then you are told you can’t bring that  bottle of water with you. Fine after all this eliminates some of the possibilities of that jumbo jet from being hijacked (o.k)

And most people on Earth don’t own a shoulder mounted Stingray missile that can drop a plane out of the sky, but watch any old Western movie and anyone could figure out how to derail a train, especially one doing 180 MPH !

What would it take? A log on the tracks, a car, pull a couple of spikes out? My point is clear. The Federal Government cant even watch the boarders much less miles of track.  Oh I ‘m sure it can be done but how much will this cost ?

Perhaps in the future this will all work out but by then I will be very old and gray and will not have the option to drive. But that’s o.k. I’ll  just call my great grandson to give me a ride in his cloud car.

Nothing like a ride in a Shanghai Shimmy on a Sunday afternoon.

Before Our Eyes

After 18 days of protest

it seems ( at this moment) that Egypt’ President Mubarak will step down.

Now what? who is and willing to take his place?

It’s all fun and games until someones eye get’s poked..Then It’s just fun you can’t see.

The Fire Truck

If it’s not broke don’t fix it!

A firefighter was working on the engine outside the Station, when he noticed
a little girl nearby in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides and
a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle.

The girl was wearing a firefighter’s helmet.

The wagon was being pulled by her dog and her cat.

The firefighter walked over to take a closer look.
‘That sure is a nice fire truck,’ the firefighter said with admiration.

‘Thanks,’ the girl replied. The firefighter looked a little closer.  The girl had
tied the wagon to her dog’s collar and to the cat’s testicles.

‘Little partner,’ the firefighter said, ‘I don’t want to tell you how to run your
rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat’s collar, I think you could go
faster.

The little girl replied thoughtfully, ‘You’re probably right, but
then I wouldn’t have a siren.’

What We Fear The Most

Just two points of view

Two magazines, Country Living (95.99% white readership)

and Ebony /Jet (99.99% black readership) did surveys on….

“WHAT DO PEOPLE FEAR MOST?”

The results were interesting, to say the least….

Country Living magazine’s top three answers were:

1. Nuclear war/terrorist attack in U.S

2. Child/spouse dying

3. Terminal illness

Ebony / Jet magazine’s top three answers were:

1. Ghosts

2. Dogs

3. Registered mail

Some what  interesting.          If you don’t believe me look it up for yourself!

Hugger

Splinters in her Crotch?


A woman from Los Angeles, CA who was a tree hugger, a Democrat, and an anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland near Colville, WA. There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree. As she neared the top she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her crotch.

In considerable pain, she hurried to Mt. Carmel ER to see a doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist, a democrat, and an anti-hunter and how she came to get all the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.

She sat and waited three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry woman demanded, “What took you so long?” He smiled and then told her, “Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I’m sorry, but due to Obama Care, they turned me down.”
