What is going on with some of the people in the Treasure Coast?  Have they lost their minds?

 

It is bad enough that a becoming more and more seemingly less rational by the day group wants to stop the single greatest American passenger train initiative since the Santa Fe Railway inaugurated it’s streamlined, high-level El Capitan passenger train in 1956, but now one non-genius is talking about removing the Florida East Coast Railway’s tracks, which have been there since 1892—93, entirely and that nonsensical pronouncement borders on the raving of a madman.

 

While I recognize that there is no sense in trying to reason with people who have no interest in truth or facts I will simply state that the actions of those noted range from unreasonable at best to psychotic at worst.  Frankly, the All-Aboard Florida naysayers should not only be ashamed of themselves but they better start taking courses in democracy, the free market economy and property rights in America.

 

The arguments against AAF are totally illogical and the rhetoric is filled with nothing but distorted lies and blind, thoughtless, irrationality.  To state that the actions of those opposing this great project are both ill-conceived and ill-timed would be nothing but a compliment, giving the said irrational vehemence and thoughtlessness of the opposition, but, simply put, that is all it is, and for that, more is the pity.

They have come to their senses. Specially about passenger service on the FEC. I can't see that becoming a reality. Man will walk on Mars before FEC runs anything but freight om their tracks.
