President Barack Obama unveiled his High Speed Railroad plan today promising to utilize billions of dollars from his stimulus package to fund a new generation passenger service for the 21st century and beyond. President Obama talks of this venture taking time, years to complete, but will strengthen the infrastructure and create thousands of jobs to right the economy.
Below is a quote from Obama taken today from the New York Times:
“What we need, then, is a smart transportation system equal to the needs of the 21st century,” he said, “a system that reduces travel times and increases mobility, a system that reduces congestion and boosts productivity, a system that reduces destructive emissions and creates jobs. There’s no reason why we can’t do this.”

The Grassy Knoll Institute outlined this plan five years ago. That’s right kids, five years ago. My plan to right the economy begins with the railroad. You can see the entire news article here.
Our Nations Railroad.
Mr. President, the least you could do is give a shout out to the Grassy Knoll Institute, perhaps an invite to a White House dinner, (I could tell you what is really happening on ABC’s Lost) or even season tickets to the Minnesota Vikings. I’ll let you decide. Either way, I want to thank you for reading my humble blog and am delighted that in some small way, I have contributed to the growth of our nation’s economy.
God Bless America!
