Running a business with a net operating loss because you're plowing money into expansion (home Depot) or r&d (Tesla) isn't in the same league as stealing and lying about investing it. It's not even the same game. Nor played on the same planet. Nor universe.
It's an absolutely absurd comparison.
For some reasons Americans just hate high-speed rail. I don't get it. It would be a boon for the economy. First of all, you would have all those jobs just building the system, and then all the jobs created by a brand new industry.
. No, let's build a dumb train nobody will use. It should finish just around the time self driving, electric cars are the norm.
I know politicians want it because it would be a vehicle for graft. But I don't know why anyone else would.
Perhaps, but what is absurd is a company that sold 80,000 vehicles last year and lost $773M is worth more than the company who who sold 10,000,000 vehicles and made $12B in profit.
OK I'll admit, I'm biased. I sell Chevy's for a living. Tesla gets a free pass on everything. They're the only company that measures their results by how many people have put down a $1000 deposit to buy a car that won't be made for a year or two. Deposits are meaningless. I'm sure over half of those will cancel. The Chevy Volt is a completely revolutionary car unlike anything that has been built in over 100 years of selling cars. It's a practical car that the average person can afford. It has gotten absolutely no respect. It's been continuously villainized by right wing haters. Meanwhile Telsa sells $100k cars to rich greenies and they're the greatest thing since sliced bread.

It used to, until Katrina. Now the route's eastern terminus is New Orleans. I took the Sunset Limited from Jacksonville to Biloxi once. It was indeed a relaxing way to go, but it took about 11 hours vs. a 7 hr drive. The schedule was perfect for me. It left in the evening and got to Biloxi about daybreak.Quote: rxwine
I live mid-Florida, but would happily take a train car to Biloxi - and sleep or lounge as I desire rather than drive or fly.
If it existed.
It depends on the person. I love train travel, but Mrs. Joeman gives it a "Meh." You should give it a try and see if it lives up to your imagination!Quote:
Of course, I envision a nice lounge car to sit in having lunch, for a hour or two. Probably just my imagination that it might be preferable.
