  • Now Biden wants to put all the truckers out of work too.

  • Contrast this with just about any trump speech, any of them, ever And the trumpers think Biden is slow.. it's completely delusional

  • Can somebody please obtain a real Medical Checkup Report on Biden? Paperwork that isn't forged or fake. There's a reason why Putin told him that he "wishes him good health" in response to Biden calling him a Killer. Even Russian Intelligence was hinting that he's got medical problems, but nobody seems to have caught on. My prediction: Biden suffers a stroke soon and Harris is sworn in as President, but isn't Elected when she runs for a Presidential Term.

  • The CCP has begun to supervise the management of passports for going abroad, so it is now very difficult for Chinese people to go abroad, that is, they are locked in disguise and prohibit people from going abroad. However, Chinese people who go abroad have to prepare a lot of documents before they are allowed to go abroad, so all countries in the world should pay attention. People who can easily travel from China to foreign countries are generally the CCP’s special agents.

  • "The eyes of history are on this appointment." - Buttigeig 1964 Japan's first bullet trains were put in service and the the first Beatles album was released. 1998 China started the construction of 36,000km of high speed railways and high speed trains. 2021 US still has NO high speed railway and NO high speed trains. When was America great?

  • Someone needs to stop him from doing his little jog/shuffle. Especially on stairs. He's gonna get himself severely injured. The election is over. It's served its purpose, the media was able to say "look how fit he is and the pep he's got". His handlers almost trained him too well and now he won't stop.

Find a way to keep the bathrooms on the Empire Builders clean during the journey 4. Change the timings of the Maple leaf so that it reaches NY in the evening as opposed 10:30 pm!

    • @Chaos ur dumb. I will educate you. It’s very simple, there are forces which you do not see active on the ground in those particular countries where these migrants or illegal immigrants as you call them come from. They are solving the problem in a different way so that these people stay in their country. They’re not repesting walls dlogans even though Biden is continuing the Trump wall, but nevertheless it’s just that dems are little more diplomatic and at the end of the year and you can verify this for yourself the statistics don’t lie the number of deportations is about the same as Trump or greater. So now why don’t you just relax Take a chill pill uncle Joe is in charge and I hope you and your family take that Amtrak train ride enjoy the view.

  • Great! More theft from the American people to serve at the knees of the elite 10%. The gov'ts subsidized loan is only the latest example. During its more than 40-year tenure, the rail service has received over $45 billion in taxpayer dollars. Yet Amtrak has run operating losses every year since its inception in 1971. For over a decade, 41 of its 44 routes have remained unprofitable. In 2014 alone, its loses totaled roughly $1.1 billion. www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2016-10-04/amtrak-is-taxpayer-funded-trains-for-the-1-percent

    • Republicans rewriting history and spewing BS. Biden is ending the Afganistan war. And there would have been no Iraq war without bush and his neocon administration. 0 chance. If republican's lead by Kavanaugh (now rewarded with a supreme court seat) hadn't stopped the Florida recount - which they would have lost, it wouldn't have happened.

Tell him no campaign funding if he doesnt vote for it. We can't afford it no. Nor can the Chinese. But nobody who wants to be a super power and competitive cannot afford not to build a comprehensive national high speed rail passenger service. So unrepresentative republican senators, toe the line or be voted into extinction eventually. When Ike build interstates it cost much more than it brought in. Same with rail but look at how much america benefited from the interstate system. Stop being a bunch of republican senators: lead us, follows us, or get out of the way please.
