As Comrade Obama revealed in his State of the Union address, he has found a solution to the Sword of Damocles that hangs over us in the form of massive government debt: pour still more money into 19th century technology to placate environmental extremists. It takes more than windmills to bankrupt a great nation; only when the country is criss-crossed by empty trains can we be sure to achieve socialist penury — aka, a green economy:

“Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80% of Americans access to high-speed rail, which could allow you go places in half the time it takes to travel by car. For some trips, it will be faster than flying — without the pat-down. As we speak, routes in California and the Midwest are already underway.”

For most routes, it will be far slower than flying, which is why Amtrak has to be financed coercively with endless subsidies. At least terrorists will be pleased to hear about the absence of pat-downs.

Compliments of Cons.Underground.
