High-speed rail gaining
momentum in Texas

Star-Telegram [Fort Worth TX], by Gordon Dickson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/28/2014 9:26:12 AM

DALLAS— The number of Texas cities that could be served by high-speed rail is growing quickly and now includes Bryan-College Station, an area best known as the home of Texas A&M University that was bypassed by the interstate highway system. High-speed-rail advocates stepped up their efforts Wednesday to bring bullet trains to Texas as early as 2021. A commission set up to oversee a proposed connection between Dallas and Fort Worth unanimously agreed to seek federal funding to also study a Fort Worth-Austin connection. One after another, public officials at the Commission for High-Speed Rail in Dallas/Fort Worth meeting at

"gaining momentum"? Only in the fevered dreams of those who don´t believe in living within the budget. It´s not going to happen, at least in my lifetime.

What earth shattering news. A study group votes to get more federal government funding to do more studies.

"But the vote could also widen the group’s mission beyond just a high-speed line in North Texas."

Why go for a little bit of free government cash when you can go for a whole bunch more.

“I think a big part of the role of this commission is finding that funding.."

Yup he´s got that right. It´s their main raison d´être I would think.

This would require building from scratch. There is one train running through Houston and it runs only 3 days a week. There is small building there but no park and ride service. The conventional rail is extremely busy hauling oil, steel, pipes, chemicals, plastics, etc. If you take a train between downtowns, it is not uncommon for the first and last 45 minutes of the trip navigating between the station and the outskirts of the city. Some years ago, Houston built a 7 mile commuter train system at a cost of 5 million a mile. During its first year of operations, there was an accident a week involving the commuter train and street traffic. Like I said, there is nothing on which to build on.

Really! These people are so eager to spend tax payers money.

Gov. Brown (California) is an example of poor logic. He wants to build a 68 Billion dollar rail system between LA and Las Vegas.
Passengers will not pay for what it really costs to ride so who do you think will pick up the balance. These people love to spend other peoples money.

Brown wants to spend 68 billion on rail but
turns around and says 16 billion is too much money to desalination of ocean water to provide the same to the people of his state.
Go figure.

The only place train systems seem to work are in/between urban areas (NYC, DC, etc)where one can walk to many different places once you have exited the train. Europe has many cities like this, with metro-style subways as well. Wide-open spread-out places are not the places for a train; you will need a vehicle to get around.

#4, agreed. I´d prefer those gambling venues, or perhaps a gubmint-approved house of ill repute.

Rails are another form of centralization. Not only are there fewer choices of destination, but riders must adjust their schedules to rail schedules. Flying can be cheaper and faster.

I ride my bike 7 miles to get groceries. I can beat a bus rider under certain circumstances. I can alter my route, make more stops, or turn around and go back home at any time. Imagine what I could do in my pickup...

Public transit is for suckers.

#8 nails it... what do you do when you get there?

#9 rips it open... its about centralization and control

And my experience with public transit in the US is as follows:

Flight to SFO was cancelled so they offered to let me take the flight to Oakland. Its 7 miles away, as the crow flies. My car was at SFO. How hard could it be to get there?

LONG story short, I took several BART rides, and several bus rides and 3+ hours later was at my car. I think the next direct SFO flight beat me there.

It must be the lure of federal money. Maybe there are some transit rail lines that have been a success, but the failures are legion. Amtrak and SEPTA come to mind immediately; they have been financial failures from day one and yet they are still around because of being subsidized.
Cincinnati is in the middle of putting a streetcar line in that has been a boondoggle from the start. Council voted to keep going because after much argument and studying and fighting with Duke Energy, the reason given was because they didn´t want to waste the ton of money already spent when they will lose even more after it´s done. The ridership estimates and the cost are a joke, but no one listens.
I heard Detroit of all places is seriously considering light rail to "save the city". Now this from Texas. Is there anything more absurd?

The issue of "high-speed rail" does not benefit very many Texans. To charge taxes upon the remainder of the state is unfair.

Let them pay for it. All of the toll roads being built pay for themselves. Pay as you go.

This is liberal, big government think.

Governor Brown of California has virtually annexed his state to Mexico. If Texas falls, its over for the nation.

The Machine Shed restaurant, where the waitresses wear bib overalls and suggest a cinnamon roll the size of a loaf of bread as a breakfast appetizer, sells a root beer called Dang!, bandages made to look like bacon strips, and signs that proclaim, “I love you more than bacon.” For Joni Ernst, however, the apposite sign reads, “No one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side.” She, nourished by a cinnamon roll, is preparing for a bus tour taking her Senate candidacy to all of Iowa’s 99 counties, and she seems to love campaigning even more than

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” says the ancient proverb. But don’t tell that to President Obama, who is furiously bombing Bashar al-Assad’s enemies in Syria while insisting that Mr. Assad’s regime is also the enemy. Best also not to remind Mr. Obama about leading from behind, or of his arguments against being drawn into the Syrian civil war or getting embroiled in any Middle Eastern conflicts. This was the week the president went before the United Nations General Assembly and proclaimed, in effect, that the United States was back out front again — not only against the

There has been a lot of buzz around the blogosphere regarding the recent announcement that Attorney General Eric Holder will resign his position “as soon as a replacement can be found.” Rush Limbaugh opined that Holder may have resigned now to grease the skids for the President to nominate him to the high court. Now would be a good time, while the President has a majority in the Senate, or at least it looks good if you don’t look too closely. Arguing against such a move would be that Obama would have to convince one of the sitting justices to

Bill Maher could not believe the completely ridiculous “latte-gate” controversy swirling this week about President Obama‘s coffee cup salute. He mocked the hype and said, “If this offends you that much, you should marry your teddy bear.” General Anthony Zinni actually told Maher he was bothered by Obama’s salute, because it struck him as disrespectful. He said it was more like a “frat house” gesture than something the President of the United States would do. Maher and Zinni ended up battling over the origins of the salute, and of the president giving the salute. Maher said it’s a fairly recent

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such

Months after statewide voter turnout hit a historic low of 25% in this year´s primary election, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed eight bills aimed at getting more Californians to participate in the political process. He also signed dozens of other bills Friday — a hodgepodge that included new rights for gay and transgender Californians, a requirement that state prisons expand the availability of condoms to inmates and measures that promote the "farm to fork" movement to increase consumer access to fresh food.

Oklahoma got a dose of peace yesterday, when Alton Nolen, apparently a Muslim convert, beheaded a co-worker at the food company where he worked. He attacked a second woman and would have killed her too, except that the company’s COO has a gun and knows how to use it. This could actually be a case of workplace violence, as the attack occurred immediately after Alton had been fired. (For what, has not been reported.) Nolen had a colorful criminal record, which makes one wonder how he got a job at all when millions are unemployed. Paul has written about the

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter.
