They should write their final business plan on toilet paper as that is about all it will be worth.

Billions of dollars so that the upper middle class, the upper class and tourists can ride a spiffy train, supported by constant and unbelievable subsidies from the lower classes.

GIBSON............the upper classes do not ride the trains.
There IS no middle class. Working Americans and commuters will get to LA and San Diego and I hope MEXICO (for inexpensive items)

I guess nobody read the WSJ or the BBC and London Times to see that China is now in control and produces a mineral that is not found anywhere and is undoubtedly going to hold us hostage.....YOU LOOK IT UP!
