Way past due.   Finally someone is giving some serious thought to practical, affordable transport.

Republican buddies big oil and auto are really gonna hate this....

9 minutes - going up the country...

18:30 min - linear motor.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Philmont depends on the SW Chief which goes from Chicago to LA to get thousands of scouts and others to and from the ranch every year as well as other businesses around NE NM.  Looks like Amtrak is trying to shirk track maintenance costs and start running buses between Dodge City, Ks. and Albuquerque.  It's got our part of the state up in arms.

There are winners and losers in every funding event.   If they fix that, what goes lacking??   We know this goes lacking since they are putting money elsewhere.  Couple of direct cause/effect moments here - 1, Congress making them do something.  2, Congress not funding it.

But hey, at least the richest got yet another big tax cut - and that is the important thing, after all.!!
