A RAILROAD FROM ORLANDO TO LAS VEGAS
Well, I guess we need some way to get those FEMA
prisoner rail cars across the county.

That wouldn't make sense.

Why pay them to build a railroad, then lock them up.


Why not lock them up, then use them as free labour to build the railroad?

Well the entire concept relys on the idea that slowly lulling a peoples into control is safer and more likely 'permanent' than simply going in and taking it all at once; violently.'

So it would appear to make perfect sense within this particular worldviews framework.

Considering this will be a government contract and one of his latest executive orders regarding unions and and large projects you must be a member of one of the many unions. The unemployed should be told to sign up and pay dues to get that job.

Anyone know where the tracks will be laid through? Will it be for Commercial loads or passenger?

Only reason why I ask is because if I wanted to get to Orlando via railroad, (starting from Dallas, TX) I would have to go up to Chicago, then to DC, then down to Orlando. The RR tracks which did connect Dallas to Florida were supposedly wiped out in Katrina. They only repaired enough track to allow commercial freight trains and not passenger trains. This is according to Amtrack. I would love a way to get to Florida or California (via Vegas) for cheaper and faster.
