Let’s get down to brass tacks. Do we really need a bullet train? It’s about a 45-minute flight to Southern California from the Bay Area.
Do we want to tunnel our precious water to Southern California? Ask your local farmer for the answer to that question. Why is our government willing to pump billions of taxpayer dollars into, my opinion, these asinine projects? Use the money to construct desalination plants. Costly? Of course. Necessary? Absolutely! We are a coastal, agricultural state in the throes of a major drought. Sacramento, hello? Thirsty state calling!
