More squandered tax-payers money


Train to nowhere? High-speed Vegas line stirs controversy:

Fer-get about-it! Vegas is on its last leg and will never make a comeback to where it was in the 50’s – 60’s and 70’s even with a high-speed train that is on the books to shuttle passengers from California’s desert to “Sin City”.

Privately held DesertXpress is on the verge of landing a $4.9 billion loan from the Obama administration to build a high-speed rail system that will transport passenger at 150 mph into Vegas from out in the California desert. This way the gambler could get there quicker and lose their money faster.

It is a real shame that most of our country has sunk to the point that they are dependent on gambling to support their cities, states and federal governments.

The billion dollar bullet construction project that the O-Bomba administration wants to back will naturally be funded with tax payers’ money.

Since the inception of the brain storm project its projected construction cost have soared to as much as $6.5 billion, not including interest on the loan. It hasn’t even got off the ground yet. Probably will triple before its all over.

One important element not to forget; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is linked to the company that is going to own the bullet train. Another politician with his hands in the cookie jar.

O-Bomba wants to go down in the record books as the first prez to have constructed a bullet train here in the USA.

To me, this is just another ill-conceived project to squander tax payer’s money. I wonder just how the $ 4.9 billion dollar loan will be structured. Naturally coming from the government there probably will be no guideline or stipulations.

Let’s face it; Vegas is going down the tubes. With all of the states in America that are legalizing gambling, they are chipping away at the gamblers that would normally take the trip. Why go across the country to lose your money when you can do it closer to home.

Vegas like everything else in history has served its purpose and must now bow out. There has been billions of dollars spent out there trying to revitalize their economy but it is like throwing their money into the desert winds.

Maybe we can compare the bullet train to “Sin City” to “the bridge to nowhere” in Alaska that almost cost the tax payer $ 398,000,000.00. Its purpose was to eliminate the ferry-boat ride that transports passengers from Ketchikan, Alaska to Gravina Island.

All of this money was going to be spent to connect the 50 residents of the island with the main land. That comes to about $ 7,960,000.00 for each resident so they don’t have to get ferried.

The controversial bridge construction is still being kicked around. That does not surprise me.
