High Speed Trains

There's a line in an historical novel I read (but can't remember its title) in which the hero is responding to a former slave blaming his own short-comings on slavery. The hero says something like: "You're still blaming slavery? Come on, man. It's 1876!"

I was struck by the President's plan in the State of the Union address to spend taxpayer money or borrow on invest in high speed trains. All I can think of is: "Trains? Trains, really? Come on, man. It's 2011."

We swamped by sky high federal spending, drowning in government debt, and President Obama is proposing more government spending on trains and windmills as the way out? How did this fool get elected to anything?
