...there are days where I REALLY wish savagesusie was just a really persistent troll with no life, instead of genuine.
Sure it'd be fucking pathetic, but...
...actually, I don't know which would be more worthy of a gigantic facepalm.

So, it's going to be used for controlling the population... by allowing them to travel at high speed to other parts of the country?
I don't see anywhere where building high-speed rail systems means that cars and airplanes will be made illegal.

Funny, I was wondering if high-speed rail was a way for corporations to cut still more jobs, by eliminating thousands of truck drivers.
The original development of railroads certainly had bad economic effects along with the good.

I wonder how seriously messed up savagesusie must be to equate this:

Newsflash: the railroad predates Marxism by at least thirty years. Even after the Communist Manifesto, it remained the darling of capitalists up until the Interstate.
11/18/2011 1:08:31 PM
Jeez, slatheringsusie must go through a fortune in keyboards, what with the frequent mouth-foam-related short circuits.

Say what? I can get to Paris in two hours. It's fucking brilliant. That ebil socialist Thatcher gubmint had the line built to FORCE me to go and whoop it up in Paris or drink beer in Brussels every couple of years. And now the even ebiller Cameron communist collective is planning a line that will allow Manchester folk to get here in an hour! The swine! Next they'll be letting Scotsmen use it! It's the end of capitalism I tells ya!

Either that or this one is bat shit insane.
11/18/2011 1:44:56 PM
60 years ago (approximately), this braindead rube would be claiming that the public highway system is some sort of control system by the marxists and their big government overreach. These types of people lack the brainpower or self-awareness to function at a rational level.

I wonder what her reaction would be if she saw the Japanese high-speed rail network.
@anevilmeme: She is absolutely a genuine crazy person.
11/18/2011 1:55:35 PM
Also, Dwight D Eisenhower and the Interstate. Although I bet nutty Sue thinks ol' Ike was some kind of pinko.
11/18/2011 1:56:28 PM
Fuck it, double post.

So France and Japan are slave societies. Really the Freepers, by this point, are just getting desperate to make Americans look backward and idiotic.
11/18/2011 2:58:32 PM
yeah you batshit susie
if ayn rand is so cool and right
why are you posting on some dumb webshite?
11/18/2011 3:35:36 PM
Wow, there is so much paranoia in this post from susie I am surprised no one has committed her to the proper mental institution.
11/18/2011 4:01:55 PM
Yes, those evil socialists like Cornelius Vanderbilt and Leland Stanford!
11/18/2011 8:42:17 PM
Seriously, I wonder what it would be like to be that insane and paranoid? Can you imagine savagesusie reacting to Michelle Obama's anti-childhood obesity crusade? I'm guessing it would sound like this:
Simply more Marxist indoctrination from the Fuhrer-in-Chief's Bitter Half...once these Commies indoctrinate children into eating broccoli it will only be a matter of time before they think sodomy is acceptable...a tactic straight out of the Communist Manifesto...once they're older they'll make up our newly homosexualized military--think Hitler and his Brownshirts as described in The Pink Swastika, who even made Patton puke...without God, the void will always be filled with nihilism...

We got adgenda 21 going on with people going from point A to point B ASAP?
WTF in Prescott...
11/18/2011 10:36:55 PM
So land that's bought up is off limit to the masses?
Before it was bought up did the owners put up signs that said "Private property: walk around here all you like, I don't give a shit."
Because if they didn't that land was still off limits to the masses and the very concept of private property determines where the masses can live, what areas they're allowed to enter and when.

Let's take that there logic to it's conclusion, shall we?
I actually happen to live by several large dams that produce vast amounts of hydroelectricity, while at the same time providing beautiful scenic lakes for tourism and irrigation. But beneath that beautiful, serene exterior lies a dark truth: these dams are fucking Communist.
You see, these dams were built by the GOVERNMENT in order to further their dictatorial grasp on America. In 1938. And also to fix the Depression. But mostly to instil Communism into pre-WW2 America. Anyway, there must have been some sort of WITCHCRAFT at work, because these dams made a lot of permanent jobs, despite the scientific law that states that Keynesian Economics can never work in any capacity ever.
Clearly, this dam construction which was finished before the existence of jet aircraft must be STOPPED, and that train as well. Because if the Government is allowed to just up and make jobs out of thin air, what will happen next? What will we do? THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!

I'm only going to be concerned about this if ToonTown has to be demolished to make it happen...

@ J. James:
You get a free Internet, good sir.
11/19/2011 8:53:42 AM
Hey, Savage, try to go to Europe from America swiming before undermining the power of highspeed transportation.
11/19/2011 10:51:52 AM
Actually both are of German design...
EDIT: No not trolling. I am German myself and merely stated a fact. I can see that first train each day, only painted with red stripes and the logo of our primary railway company.
