China Opens Longest High-Speed Rail Line
The Godless Communist red devils have these:
We have psychotic Neocons.
Hey America, welcome to the Third World!

Innovation or copy?
You really can't say anything nice about anyone non-American. Do you really hate the rest of the world so much?
Btw, I laughed so hard that this is the only thing you were capable of saying after rareboy wiped the floor with your ignorance.
That we are capable only of being what we are, remains our unforgivable sin.

Maybe they were copying those other "socialist" countries in Europe.
This is what the US has. 25-30 year old trains... that go at a crawl. With some of the worst safety records in the West.
California finally realized it and will start building one like in China. Maybe we're copying China lol. But that's YEARS from completion. The rest of the country hasn't even bothered.

I'm so tired of the media, especially during an election cycle, just tires me out trying to keep up with who said what and keeping up with the context or hidden context of what was said. The only news I watch regularly anymore is the local morning and evening on WTTG Fox 5, I love just about all the on air people.
I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.
The most depressed states in the country are those with the fewest infrastructure initiatives in the early 20th century.
China's investment now will mean unchallenged superiority over the US by the time I am an old man.
Positive results of high-speed transit:
1. fewer cars on the road - easier on the environment.
2. not necessary to fly (NYC - DC, Boston - NYC, etc.) less airport congestion, fewer opportunities to get
groped by TSA.
3. Koch Brothers will have to suck off somebody else other than the automotive industry.

^population density is reason why rail travel in europe is good and only really viable along the east coast of the US.
Also, the only really dense region of Europe is called the Blue Banana, which completely excludes France, and yet rail is extensive there.
When gas hits 5, 6, 7 ... 10 dollars a gallon, we will see the public clamoring for rail here in the US, mark my words. By then it will probably be too late to catch up to China, and partisan gridlock will make coordinated infrastructure improvements impossible nationally.
It'll be viable on the west coast too.
Then someone showed the photo of the trains as an example, and I asked the question; innovation or copy. So far as we know, the high speed train is based upon technology from other countries, Japan, and perhaps Europe.
If we build it, the labor bosses will squeeze it dry and ask for endless subsidies. Amtrak all over again. No thanks.
Where is the US with this rail though? Why is the train system in the US so old and antiquated? Perhaps it's because of the republicans who refuse to spend any money.
All of which are arguably mixed economies and social democratic countries. Keep on failing.Then someone showed the photo of the trains as an example, and I asked the question; innovation or copy.

I don't the think Lexus would be considered a cheap imitation.
It is my belief that Japan will survive, even without your approval.
It's not surprising Hillary beats all the theoretical republican opponents. Look what they have to offer.... Jindahl, Christie, another Bush, Rubio.... the dregs of the political spectrum.
Not sure why Hills, not Michele, wasn't presenting at the Oscars
