VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- On a dusty, rock-strewn expanse at the edge of the Mojave Desert, a company linked to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wants to build a bullet train that would rocket tourists from the middle of nowhere to the gambling palaces of Las Vegas.

So what happens when ‘The BIg One’ hits California?
Mormon control of the Senate is a problem.
There's simply no need for all that glitz and waste.
Republicans for Reid??? No real Republican could support Dingy Harry. They must be “on the take” from Reid funnelling federal goodies their way.
Vegas is a relic and ruin waiting to happen.
Whatever happened to the mag-lev train that was to be built between LA and Vegas?
It has to be along an Agenda 21 proposed corridor.
What pikers!! California is now projecting around $100 billion for their bullet train to nowhere. (Any bets that the actual costs end up far exceeding the current “estimates”?)
Just when you thought they couldn’t do something more stupid, they come up with this. When they come up w/a train that can do 500 mph, then we can talk.
Pray for America
the other link that is rediculous is from fresno to merced. that is the first link that will be built and ridership will be very low. from san francisco to los angeles would make far more sense, or from los angeles to san diego. no matter estimates are that it will be 20 years before the first run. over 1,000,000,000 dollars goes into engineering and environmental studies
This was Harry Reid’s request under the stimulus bill. I remember doing a parody on the song, people get ready, there’s a Train a coming, the night that stimulus bill was passed.
The train was to run between Disneyland and Las Vegas. I believe that $800 million dollars was allocated for the train. i’ve been wondering what happened to the money. I should have known that it was being held back for the election,
Can you imagine sending vacationing families from Disneyland on to Las Vegas?
Since the Big 0 told everyone to stay out of Vegas, Reid needs something to boost his polls.
Staying out of Vegas is the only thing that I have done.
While the card dealing, bed making and casino unions keep supporting Reid, I will not be back.
People get ready there’s a train coming
You don’t need no baggage you just get on board
All you need is some faith to hear the diesels humming
And you don’t need a ticket you just thank Harry Reid.
I’ll let you people get ready for the train to Vegas
You don’t need a ticket you just get on board
A large chunk of or stimulus money was allocated for the preparations for Harry Reid’s train.
