Starting fairly inexpensively but building up into a full city over time.
A lot of people were voting against ObamaCare this time around. But considering it took 60 votes in the Senate to get it passed, you would need 60 votes in the Senate to end it, plus getting past an Obama veto.

I have the Palm Pre and I usually play the games while in the bathroom. The major games I play are solitaire, checkers and chess. The checkers and chess kinda suck because the computer is far too easy to beat (sacrificing bishop to take out pawns, missing opportunities to check mate me, etc.) I tend to kill off my queen in my first few moves to make it more challenging.
Other than that there are some multi-player/build your guy up type of games that I occassionally keep up with.

The accounting guys are foaming at the mouth for this to happen.

How is it saving fuel if for every 8 cars your new train system has to have 1 more car burning fuel?
You're adding 12.5% in fuel to save a few mpg.
