California bullet train joke

Oct. 9, 2012

By John Seiler

At the initial journey of the 200-mph California bullet train, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gov. Jerry Brown are sitting in a luxury car, sipping Napa Valley chardonnay. The train starts, lurches a foot, then stops.

An hour later, Steinberg gets up and says, “I’m a former union activist and closely allied with the public-employee unions running the train. I’ll get them to start the train again.” He leaves.

Half an hour he returns and says, “It’ll start moving soon. We’ll be zooming ahead at 200 mph while creating jobs!”

Two hours later, the train is still standing. Schwarzenegger stands up and says, “You are all girly-men. I vill order der workers to start der train!”

Half an hour later Arnold returns and says, “Der Zug vill move now! 322 kph!”

Two hours later the train still hasn’t moved. Jerry Brown stands up, pulls the shades down over the windows, and says, “My bullet train now is accelerating to 200 mph and saving the environment.”

    To US Citizen….
    Why would you think the illegals will love it? They won’t be getting jobs building it because it’s union and once it’s built, it goes to Fresno……who in their right mind including *illegals* wants to go to Fresno? There’s NOTHING in Fresno to cause people to get on this stupid train to NOWHERE.

    Who wants to go to SF?

    SF is filthy….old….beat up…no parking…crummy weather…bans diverse thought and speach and is intolerant of religious expression….it is expensive and a total bore!

    Oh they are not going to build it. They are going to use it for going from farm to farm.

    Yes, it is a train to no where and a giant waste of money. But the state thinks it will connect finally on each end. Maybe in the year 3000.

    It will make it much easier for Mr Haney to get from Pixley to Tipton. And for Lisa Douglas to take Arnold the Pig to Sam Drucker’s store.

    (Observant readers know both towns actually do exist, of course. They are about 5 miles apart, and roughly halfway between Fresno and Bakersfield on 99.)

    Sorry, that’s a lousy joke. But it’s a worse train.
