Skip to comments.Joe Biden: 'They're gonna own our kids' without high-speed rail

Speaking about the need for high-speed rail, Vice President Joe Biden commented that, "If we don't get a grip, folks, they'll not only be teaching us, they're gonna own our kids."
If I'd known that all it required to own someone's kids was to discourage him from supporting high-speed rail, I would be beating Angelina Jolie right now in the people's-kids-owning-game.
Leaving aside the numerous objections to high-speed rail, this seems like an odd thing to say under any circumstances. I understand that this makes it characteristic of Joe Biden. I think the most impossible quiz in the world would be something called, "Joe Biden Quote Or Something An Old Guy In a Sweater Says To You To Make Conversation At The Gas Pump." It's sort of a mouthful, but I think most of his remarks pass the test.
"I had a successful dump!"
"You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent....I'm not joking." (Something Biden actually said to an Indian-American man that was caught by C-SPAN)
"Big [verbing] deal!"
And now this one. Fail to get a grip, and they'll own our kids.
Things look pretty bleak for our kids, based on the remarks our public officials have been making. They are, apparently, going to be outsmarted, outcompeted, out-Sputniked, outparented, owned, transformed into robot slaves, outsourced, and forced to appear on the NBC comedy "Outsourced," all by people from another country who are marching back and forth doing calculus in the snow, or something.

ABC News’ Jon Garcia reports: In support of President Obamas bid to win the future, Americas most famous Amtrak rider, Vice President Joe Biden, issued a stern warning about U.S. competitiveness in the high-speed rail game: If we dont get a grip, folks, theyll not only be teaching us, theyre gonna own our kids.
The they Biden is talking about are all the other countries in the world who are developing or expanding high-speed rail systems, including China, Japan, Spain and France.
And they said Dan Quayle was stupid....
As usual decode what the RATS say and you can completely understand them.
They (the RATS) want a grip on all of us and they (the RATS) desperately want to own our kids.
Sheeesh - that one was easy. Give me a harder one!
Complete idiots. We do not have the money to do this and borrowing it from China is a sure way for them to own us! DUH
Our VP is a regular moron.
Time for him to go away in a giggle jacket!!
In contrast, with a car you're a driver. You control your own destiny and can go wherever you desire whenever you want.
It's abundantly obvious that Conservatives as lovers of liberty and personal freedom oppose mass transit, which is just another manifestation of Marxism.
I am trying to find out what the Lib Obsession with these trains is all about. It is getting out of control. Who is paying them off?
They already own your kids, Joe. You sold them off to, “let’s see”. . . George Soros, China, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Union bosses, and maybe the mob. You and everyone around you have sold yourselves to the highest bidder.
I don’t have any kids so I’ll keep driving my truck unhindered by the whims of unionistas.
Stand Up Chuck!
Wait a minute. I thought that the Democrats wanted to KILL our children, not merely to own them. The latter is the goal of the Islamofascist terrorists; consider, for example, the enslavement of the non-Muslims and black Muslims in Islamic Republic of the Sudan. The Democrats now very clearly want to cosign to slavery whatever proportion of our posterity we refuse to kill.
Vice President Biden, if you can put the beer down for a moment, please explain the business case for high-speed rail and how taxpayers will not subsidize the industry forever, like it is subsidized in every other country.
“If we don’t get a grip, folks, they’ll not only be teaching us, they’re gonna own our kids.” What?
Or WHOM ???
The plan to put us on them someday, to the camps.
They? WHO exactly is this fearsome, “they”...?
High-speed rail is in Japan, and now in China.
So the scary “they” are asians? Does this include gas-pumpers? Are they, too, “they”...? Does he hate asians?
MultiCulti has run amoke, sure but didn’t one of OUR most senior guys have to resign for the word, Macacca?
I find it interesting that only conservatives need fear falling victim to charges of insensitivity.
If he’s worried about children, he had better become pro-life.
Every filthy Muslim with a monkey wrench would destroy these easy targets along thousands of miles of unprotected track. It’ll never work in a multicultural hell hole society, but it’ll sure suck the money out of our blood.... which is the whole point.
My theory is that they govern by means of sitting in the dorm room and drinking bong water. (Well that and paying off friends and punishing enemies). But when there’s no apparent logical explanation - remember - bong water.
3. Electric cars.
5. Burying carbon underground.
6. Painting roofs of houses white.
The list goes on and on and on.
I am serious. The only angle that could get this much pressure on them is minorities or Unions. Is there a Union angle?
I had not thought of Bong Water. I was thinking maybe a bad batch of Acid. Or spiked Starbucks Coffee.
Joe Biden must be using the out-of-date meds again.
He certainly is good for a laugh, tho.
Someday, someone will write a book that is nothing but Joe Biden quotes & make a mint. Bathroom joke reading at it’s best.
High speed rail prevents slavery. Um...okay.
and you can fill your car with SAUDI petrodollars?
Vice President Joe Biden commented that, "If we don't get a grip, folks, they'll not only be teaching us, they're gonna own our kids."
What? This is what....
If you look up STOO-PID™ in the dictionary you'll see Biden's picture.
(I'd be surprised if he could put his socks on in the morning without help.)
The looks on those faces are priceless. Definitely the fat guy who BiteMe is molesting, but also the guy sitting behind the fat guy to the right of the picture!
The countries that did “get a grip,” i.e., the ones spending money on high-speed rail.
Historians, philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, archaeologists, political scientists, and thinkers of all kinds have long debated what makes Civilizations great. They’ve covered attributes from language to technology to religion, politics, and economy. Geography has long been a favorite, for instance proximity to rivers and coasts. Leave it to Biden to unlock the ultimate key to power: high-speed rail. That’s it: mass transit systems (which nobody use).
Biden, anyone with a room temp IQ owns you.
Did you know that if you go to McMaster.com (McMaster-Carr) you can buy a train derailer for $550 bucks still to this day?
I ran across it while I was ordering some stuff and about fell out of my chair when I clicked on it yesterday. I would think you would need an FBI background check to buy one of those things, but I guess not.
The kid was sooooooo poor growing up he never had one of THESE:
So now he wants to play Engineer.
The jobs would all be unionized, as they are in current rail business, but the issue I think runs deeper. Liberals are control freaks. They don't like seeing individuals driving wherever they want, whenever they want, scattered and bunched along thousands of miles of roadway. It is messy. It is not neat. It is inefficient, this freedom business. It is out of control. Unacceptible.
They want a giant ant farm.
What a great country and land of oppurtunity. A place where a complete moron can become VPOTUS.
Saudis? Labor unions? Mass transit? They're all evil, just different shades of looters.
Sarah Palin has the proven solution:
Can you imagine a train hitting that at 200mph?
Yes, that’s why I was completely shocked you could buy one. Of course owning tool and die business like I do I realize that just about anyone could make one with a Bridgeport, but still, why make it so easy for them?
Take money out of roads and roads deteriorate. As roads deteriorate, upkeep on cars becomes ever more expensive. As automobile costs rise people will be forced to move to cities where rail is available transportation.
Rail limits how much you can carry and where you can carry it to. My ideal vacation means spending hours driving down washboard two tracks with a thousand lbs of camping gear. Rail will prevent me from despoiling the wilderness with my presence.
DRILL, BABY DRILL -
also BUILD THE HIGH SPEED RAILS _
AND 1 New NUCLEAR POWER PLANT in EVERY STATE!
Also double food production
He's my motto = PRODUCE, BABY PRODUCE
You know WG is reading and saving everyone of these articles. Then he takes them into a closet like a kid with porn and.........
The shame of it is we expect this idiot to put both feet in his mouth.
Can someone explain, in simple English, why the left continues to insist on pumping money down this rathole?
Biden is a fool.
I don’t think it’d take more than 20-30 bucks to go down to the local hardware store and build something that would perform the same function. Particularly for a train that was moving fast. The whole idea is pure hatred of America. And just think how they can employ lots of new people in brown shirts to “control” those thousands of miles of vulnerable track.
Yet again, I must apologize to all of America for Delaware’s failure to deport him to the Château d’If.
Any school that he attended must be busy scrubbing his name from the alum list.
