Anyone ever taken the Amtrak from KC to LA?


Wichita to ABQ three times. It's cool to see the scenery out west, the food is better than airplane food, crazy uncomfortable seats, loud, there are some weirdos who feel much more liberated on a train than on a airplane.

The biggest reason to not take the train is that the price point is often similar if not more expensive than airfare and obviously it doesn't get you there faster. Outside of busses it's the slowest mode of transportation, but sometimes the most expensive.

Also you are much more likely to die than air travel

Yes, but neither are very likely at all.

I looked at taking Amtrak to Vegas, but it was not very practical. I have taken the Amtrak from Seattle to Portland and it was lovely. I would do another long trip through the west if I had a chunk of time, but it isn’t cheap to go long haul.

I did Denver to San Diego to San Francisco to Portland and back to Denver as a summer trip with my grandparents when I was around 10. Sounds horrible now but it was pretty boss as a kid

Heaven forbid there isn't a thread in the pit that isn't 75% of dax replying to himself, being an angry hypocrite, while using words only he can understand.

Gonna give it a bit before deciding if recent train posts are more Biden-related or if they belong in the long-standing “Rising on trains” thread.

As good a place as any.  Almost as big of a poser as some of the people on this board.

Apparently the Washington Times and WFMZ TV 'fell' for it as well.

This is the kind of poser virtue signaling that gets easily propagandized #blueanon nation horned up.

It really is truly remarkable considering all of the projection from Dax about believing everything on Twitter, MSM, etc. Buttigieg literally shared the video Dax posted of him on his own Twitter account:

The only people moving the goalposts are the resident ProgFascists, waks.

Pete was busted rolling up in a couple of huge V8 suburban's and then 'biking' into the Cabinet meeting . . . it's called trying to get out front when you're caught being a huge poser.

Here's an interesting article about Biden's infrastructure plan.   The usual hair trigger ProgFascists will lose their mind, but for people with a much high level of intellect (like me) it's an interesting read.

https://www.dlacalle.com/en/why-joe-bidens-2-trillion-infrastructure-plan-may-fail/

The main problem of Biden’s plan is that is largely politically and public-sector driven. It includes almost 40% of subsidies to local corporations and the public sector, which can reduce productivity and efficiency, as already happened in the past.

In the revenue side, figures are wildly optimistic. A $695 billion increase in corporate tax revenues from the current level is science fiction and does not even consider any negative effects from raising corporate tax to a rate that would be the highest one in the OECD, considering effective and nominal rates for most companies.

He's a human disinformation machine, but sadly we've got a predominately fawning #blueanon laced media that covers the guy.
