We need a passenger rail system in the United States of America.

The tech giants should be investing in a rail system in the United States. Electric cars are fine and useful. But it seems like there’s a lot of bang for your buck in a comprehensive rail system. I don’t understand why this isn’t happening already.

In fact I think something like this is necessary if we were ever to have or even pretend to have a unified country.

And if we aren’t trying to become unified then why don’t we break apart into separate, independent nations?

Pick one, for fuck’s sake so we can get on with it!!!

Announcement Regarding Terminology

It remains inappropriate to refer to a computer on a desk as anything other than a PC, which is “personal computer”. Β That does not refer to a particular brand or microchip architecture. Β If you mean to refer to a specific operating system, such as Windows, Mac OS, etc., then say that instead so people who think will understand what you are trying to say.
