    High speed rail connecting multi-million populations in the nation’s most populous state is their debate. To have it as an intra-state people connectivity subject in Georgia is nuts and a scam on the taxpayers.

    Interesting segment on 60 Minutes. I guess a leadership PAC is the way to go, huh? Very, very loose spending regs allow lobbyist cash to be spent on any-damn-thing a politician can imagine. And we keep electing this trash?
