Imagine you sign a contract to put down $9,000 on a $340,000 house situated on a beachfront in Laguna with a closing date of 12 months from now. Then imagine that a few months later, the seller tells you he has some changes to your contract. Your beachfront Laguna house will be located in Brawley, instead. And instead of $340,000, your house in Brawley will cost you $980,000. Just a technical change in the contract, the seller says. And, oh, by the way, your sale wont close in 12 months, itll take a bit longer, 26 months instead of 12 to be precise. How would you feel about such an after-the-fact modification to your contract? . . .

A camel is a mouse built to government specifications.
The hierarchy of Kalifornia state democrat politicians have already taken personal investments from those who will be contracting to build this train. Thanks to Dify, China will be building the rail cars. This train MUST be constructed no matter what the cost to the tax payers to save the crooks in Sacramento. The contractors should have known not to trust a politician, especially a Kalifornia politician.
Gov’ts always use the rosiest scenario to push crap like hi-speed rail.
“50 million riders!” “Will pay for itself in 2 months!” “Taxpayers won’t lose a dime!”

It’s how democrats get things built. Or passed.
Just ask the moron Bart Stupak.
