RUSH: California’s high-speed train project is in shambles.
A lot of farmers were hurt by this boondoggle. They owned prime property in California’s “breadbasket,” which feeds millions of us. The state grabbed their land (using Eminent Domain) and promised to pay market value.
But farmers didn’t get one cent — and worse, they had to pay for the enormous damage the contractors did to their property.
The Los Angeles Times says California authorities returned to these farmers hundreds of times to get more land than they originally took. That’s because they issued construction contracts before the design was finished, so they had no idea how much land they were gonna need. They made it up as they went along!
Not only were farmers stiffed, it turns out that the “high-speed train” Obama and Jerry Brown promised won’t even be high-speed (chuckles) if it’s ever even finished. It’s already billions in the red. It will never attract enough riders to be profitable.
So you have all this misery for the global warming hoax! That’s why they did this. Obama and Gov. Brown and all the liberal Democrats responsible for this high-speed swindle are nowhere in sight to answer for it!
