BY PANOS PREVEDOUROS PHD – Humor has an advantage in exposing reality. 17 Miles in just 78 Minutes! All this inconvenience cost him $5 and another $22 to the taxpayer. Enjoy this short YouTube clip and look at the pop ups.

The U.S. Congress is refusing to fund California’s $100 Billion bullet train. Did you know that:

California’s rail at over $100 billion comes to $2,700 per resident, but Hawaii’s rail at over $7 billion comes to $7,600 per resident?

Please SHARE this slideshow.  The $7 Billion rail has had several disguises over the years (congestion relief, growth management, green transit, jobs for construction) but it is simply a taxpayer financed plan for the re-election of the status quo.[1] The same status quo that’s responsible for Hawaii’s insane $40 Billion liability for government pensions and health coverage, sewer mandate, renewable energy mandates, and other infrastructure backlog.

STOP RAIL makes a great Christmas gift to YOU, for years to come! Go to and donate. The lawsuit will stop the rail.

As soon as we stop it, we can move to the good news:  Real and affordable solutions for Honolulu abound. Here is a sample: Traffic Congestion, APEC, Hurricanes, Tourism, Energy. How Will Rail and HOT Lanes Do for Honolulu? Please share this with friends and family.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
