Dianne Feinstein’s Husband Awarded Massive Fortune in Rail Boondoggle

What a remarkable coincidence. A guy who was just handed $1 billion of other people’s money in the latest rail boondoggle happens to be married to someone we know:

To the surprise of absolutely no one familiar with the ways of Corruptifornia, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Diane Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those paying attention to the project call it the “half-fast” rail line because it will share trackage with conventional commuter rail trains in the sprawling Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, lowering its average speed to levels achieved by American railways a century ago.

The purpose of government spending in a socialistic corruptocracy like ours is to “spread the wealth around” — i.e., confiscate it from those who create it for redistribution to our rulers and those in their favor. For this reason, it is totally unnecessary for rail and green energy projects to make any economic sense whatsoever. All by itself this explains why capitalism works and socialism does not work.
