The Legislature’s idiocy knows no bounds.
Biggest boondoggle in the State, currently – I know folks who are “working” there (High-Speed Rail Authority). They freely admit that they’re just milking it for as long as it lasts and know it’s moronic, which pisses me off no end.
Each man’s death taxes diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind a boondoggle.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls taxman cometh, It tolls He comes for thee.
I guess the union rank & file realized that they weren’t getting their share off the top, under the table, but instead, after the taxman grabs his part off the top. What a radical concept, this reality stuff.

Damned math sure screws things up. I’m thinking the train builders are holding their breath, while hoping the taxpayers never figure out that physics overrule the imagination.
I’d rather give the $$$ to Jess. Who knows? While he’s out frinkling with his new toys in his new shop out behind his new house, he’s waaaay more likely to actually build a working transporter than CA is to build a working HSR…

I’ll gladly take the money. By the way, transporter feasibility studies require a good single malt scotch.
