Though an underwater bullet-train-tunnel to Hawaii would be a wonderful infrastructure project.




Actually that idea seems to be coming from far right fringe media.

I read an article that claims that California has already OK'ed (voted for) the project by way of "Proposition 49".

This is kind of interesting since California's Proposition 49 was: "The After School Education and Safety Program Act of 2002."

Maybe it's paid for with Proposition 420

Maybe we could breed giant birds to fly us around... sort of like the Flintstones.




I second this proposal. As long as the birds don't try to eat any humans.

I read yesterday that the Senate will be ready to vote on this. Mitch McConnell says he wants to vote on it.

Trump is Putin's puppet... Mitch is McConnell's puppet... the rabbit hole is opened for us all to dive down....

Then how will I travel the world? I hate boats. The MEU ruined that for me so I refuse to go on a cruise.



You hate boats....? And you joined the USMC...?

Pat, did you really think that through...?

Of course I thought it through. I didn't enlist with the purpose to go on a boat. I didn't hate boats originally, but after my deployment I grew to despise them. MEUs aren't necessarily fun. It's fun when we get off the ship for liberty. Try spending a week in the Indian Ocean. It was painful.

Sorry mate, but I kinda figured the word "Marine" was a bit of a giveaway where sea going vessels are concerned. But hey... what do I know..?

The longest amount of time I've spent at sea is on a cruise liner. I rather enjoyed it, but then, I imagine that's a different environment to being cooped up with however many other grunts in a vessel that probably wasn't built with the comfort of the people in it uppermost in the designers minds.

I should imagine the Indian Ocean can get a bit lumpy. I see fishing vessels being tossed around in the South Western Approaches when I'm having my fitness runs and if that's what it's like in coastal waters I can only imagine what it must be like out on the high seas...!!

As for Liberty, well, I used to see how British sailors (and Royal Marines) behaved ashore when I was at University in Portsmouth. Not a pretty sight. Not nice people. I avoided them.

One of the huge US Aircraft Carriers (USS Nimitz I think) came to Pompey during my time there. Too big to enter the harbour it anchored out in the Solent and the Libertymen came ashore by boat. We expected the City to be flooded with US military personnel, but most just headed straight for the train station and went to London. We hardly saw them at all.

In these modern times not all U.S. Marines get deployed for long periods on ships. Usually they get deployed via air craft as it is faster.

When they are deployed by ship, it is usually direct and somewhat limited in duration... but conditions are tight to say the least.

The vast majority of their duties are on land.

They aren't like the marines of old...say a 100 years ago or more.

It'd be a slow-go to get a ship full of Marines to the Arizona border to put up razor wire, fix cars and stock warehouses.

But really...

There are Marine corps bases in Phoenix, Tucson & Yuma... and also in numerous places in California.

They are already there.

While there are some issues with the New Green Deal, even if passed it would be a nonbinding resolution.


You should consider getting a copy of the New Green Deal (it is easy to find on the internet), and then read it.

Reading and assessing it with an open but critical mind would probably serve you well.

Then, if you have and complaints, make them logically and clearly... as opposed to regurgitating far right wing media nonsense.

Or since we have our Constitution which includes our 1st Amendment, you should decide do whatever you want, even if it is not based on facts.
