And here its made my life much easier and I've had zero issues with it. I hate Pottering as much as anyone but if something he's done has made my life easier, the way systemd has, then kudo's to him.

Your post however contributes nothing.

Why not start upgrading the track to run at 150 mph in segments and speed up the trip?

Because Amtrak is a corporate welfare basket case that will never come close to justifying itself economically. We have aircraft now. Passenger rail is for short-distance commuting, and it's barely cost effective at that.

If done correctly, high speed rail could work on the west coast.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Worldwide, millennials are doing great. The World Bank Forecasts Global Poverty to Fall Below 10% for First Time.

The problem for Americans is that we can't exactly ask the Chinese to go back to having 45 million people starve to death in a new "Great Leap Forward", no matter how much taking their labor skills off the capitalist market might improve the labor demand for unskilled white Trump voting high-school dropouts. Globalism is a bitch if you were used to getting a free ride.

Just had to bitch about "white" people didn't you? Your inner douche bag is showing you racist pile of shit.

Funny thing about workers in other countries - they kinda don't want to bust their ass for meager wagers so that Americans can enjoy a standard of living higher than they deserve. The inevitable outcome is an equalization of income, where wages in established nations stagnates while wages in developing countries rises.

Who are you to tell Americans what standard of living they deserve? I work for a living, hard. I have a high standard of living compared to many. Fuck you if you think I don't deserve what I earned with my own blood sweat and tears.
