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.

As the pounding of war drums intensifies against ISIS and its advances in Iraq and Syria, at least one senator is voicing opposition to plans to arm Syrian rebels and says he´s willing to shut down the government over it. Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat who often finds himself at odds with the White House, said spending $500 million to provide weapons to groups in Syria that are fighting both ISIS and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will backfire.

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

The selection Tuesday of two private tech companies to catapult the nation´s flagging space program marks a major turning point for NASA, which traditionally has led the nation´s expeditions into space.

Iran cannot convince the world that its current ability to enrich uranium is acceptable, the top US negotiator said ahead of new nuclear talks with global powers. After months of intense negotiations the two sides have "identified potential answers to some key questions," Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said in a speech at an award-giving ceremony at Georgetown University. But she warned "we remain far apart on other core issues, including the size and scope of Iran´s uranium enrichment capacity." As Iran and world powers prepare for new talks starting on Thursday in New York, Sherman said she expected

Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday. A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported. The Arabic-language message cites Times Square — the scene of a failed car-bomb attack in 2010 by al Qaeda sympathizer Faisal Shahzad — and the Las Vegas Strip as prime targets, but also suggests striking sites

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff raised the possibility Tuesday that U.S. troops could become involved in ground attacks against the Islamic State, despite repeated pledges to the contrary from President Obama. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that U.S. military advisers are helping Iraqi government forces prepare for a major offensive to reclaim territory seized by the Islamic State in recent months. Although the advisers have been assigned primarily to assist with planning and coordination, Dempsey for the first time suggested that they eventually could go into the field on combat missions.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight
