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.

#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.

We´ve been talking about this inevitability for weeks now, so the only ´newsy´ item in this Buzzfeed story is the alleged timeline, which the White House is disputing. President Obama has every intention of expanding his DREAM Act-style power grab to millions of adults who entered the country illegally -- he just knows that doing so before voters go to the polls would further endanger a bunch of Democrats up for re-election.

Former President George W. Bush reflected on Iraq in an interview on Thursday and said that President Obama does not call him regularly, but it "doesn´t hurt my feelings." Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq as president and Obama is dealing with instability there after the removal of U.S. troops in 2011. "The Iraqi people obviously are going to have to make the decision as to whether or not they want to live in peace," Bush said on Fox News. "They´re not ready to do it on their own, that´s the lesson we´ve learned recently." But he pointed to "strong

Schoolchildren in Texas may be at risk from Ebola today after five children who attend four different Dallas schools came in close contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil. Officials said on Wednesday that the students were in school this week after possibly being in contact with the patient over the weekend when he had become contagious with the deadly virus. The Ebola patient was named today as Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national in his mid-forties, who had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family. Scroll down

Voters overwhelmingly reject extending legal protections to the new illegal immigrant children who surged across the U.S.-Mexico border this year, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday. Less than a third of voters say they want illegal immigrant children to be housed in their home states, and 53 percent said the children shouldn’t be allowed to attend taxpayer-supported public schools. The Supreme Court has ruled that all children, regardless of legal status, are entitled to primary and secondary education in public schools, leaving some districts to face a surge of children with poor or nonexistent English language skills and

Netanyahu, in a briefing in New York with reporters who accompanied him on his trip to the US, said that as Israel’s prime minister he did not understand the criticism of Jews legally buying and moving into property in Jerusalem. “Arabs in Jerusalem freely buy apartments, and nobody says that is forbidden.

The White House on Wednesday strongly criticized reports of Israeli settlement construction in East Jerusalem, on the same day that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama. Israeli officials have reportedly given final approval to the creation of more than 2,500 homes in East Jerusalem. "This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies [and] poison the atmosphere, not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a briefing.

The 39-year-old actress starred on the long-running ABC satire Desperate Housewives and in more lackluster theatrical fare such as Harsh Times and Over Her Dead Body.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007.
