U.S. and Mexico could be connected
by multi-billion-dollar high speed train
within FOUR YEARS taking passengers
from San Antonio to Monterrey

Daily Mail [UK], by Tom Gardner

A multi-billion-dollar high-speed train network linking America with Mexico moved a step closer as officials from both sides of the border thrashed out details. The proposed 300 mile route would link San Antonio, Texas, to Monterrey, Mexico - slashing the current journey time from five hours by car to under two hours. Advocates say the project, which would be the first high-speed train line in North America and is set to be completed by 2018, will provide huge economic boost to regions in both nations. [Snip] A high-speed rail between San Antonio and Monterrey through Laredo would revolutionize trade and

Comments:
Says it´s a "multi-billion" project and indicates Mexico´s share will be around $1.5 billion. I´m thinking this project will benefit Mexico more than the US but the US will be paying most of the bill.

Seems the train will cut three hours off a five-hour car journey. So American and Mexican business people are driving and not flying this route?

Stinks.

This raises a few questions. 1) will the food be as crummy - or non-existent - as it is on airlines? 2) How is this going to revolutionize trade? We´re going to use a high speed train to deliver parts to Mexico and finished goods back to the U.S? 3) Where´s AlGore and the Sierra Club. We can´t build a pipeline because some antelope won´t be able to get across town but a high speed train is ok? Wait until one of these suckers hits a deer!

Now, now everyone, let´s think this through. We might need a high speed train so we can go south for medical care and affordable prescriptions. Of course we might take those billions, refund them to our citizens and buy our own health care, etc. but that´s cuts our overlords out and then how will they buy their kobe beef.

Unless 90% of it already exists I doubt that schedul. And the cost projections are always fantasies.

America has reached the point where the planners of huge government projects will take over four years to decide upon the shape of the urinals in the toilets.

At the end of the article the DM does a little survey of high-speed rail in the US. It is always something that is going to happen soon, just need more money.

The corridor between San Antonio and Monterrey is very heavily traveled (and no, it´s certainly not all illegal aliens coming north). Monterrey is a major business center with ties to U.S. companies, and many wealthy Mexicans do their luxury shopping in San Antonio.

However, the stretch of Mexican highway down to Monterrey has been one of the world´s most dangerous in recent years, thanks to kidnappings and shootings, and most wealthy Mexicans are going to fly in and out of San Antonio, anyway. I don´t see a high-speed line being remotely cost-effective, there, just as with most places in the USA.

The delays at the border would make this useless, anyway.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable.

After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
