I don't think that there is any real debate that we are all on the wrong track.

There is. Obama's last approval rating was 39%. And I even see some people here who
defend his and his administrations actions. So, even though you and I know we are
on the wrong track ... there are still some arguing that Obama's 'policies' are wonderful.

Of course people think the country is on the rong track!

With no actual information, ideas, or solutions.

Well, first of all "the wrong track" is a railroad term,
that when used as an analogy is so out-of-date,
that it can't help but feel wrong to people.

A brief history of modern transportation.

    1783 The Montgolfier brothers invent the first hot air balloons
    1787 Steamboat invented
    1769 First self-propelled road vehicle invented by Nicolas Joseph Cugnot
    1790 Modern bicycles invented
    1801 Richard Trevithick invented the first steam powered locomotive (designed for roads)
    1807 Isaac de Rivas makes a hydrogen gas powered vehicle - first with internal combustion power - however, very unsuccessful design
    1807 First steamboat with regular passenger service - inventor Robert Fulton's Clermont
    1814 George Stephenson invents the first practical steam powered railroad locomotive
    1862 Jean Lenoir makes a gasoline engine automobile
    1867 First motorcycle invented
    1868 George Westinghouse invents the compressed air locomotive brake - enabled trains to be stopped with fail-safe accuracy
    1871 First cable car invented
    1885 Karl Benz builds the world's first practical automobile to be powered by an internal combustion engine
    1899 Ferdinand von Zeppelin invents the first successful dirigible - the Zeppelin
    1903 The Wright Brothers invent and fly the first engined airplane
    1907 Very first helicopter - unsuccessful design
    1908 Henry Ford improves the assembly line for automobile manufacturing
    1908 Hydrofoil boats co-invented by Alexander Graham Bell & Casey Baldwin - boats that skimmed water
    1926 First liquid propelled rocket launched
    1940 Modern helicopters invented
    1947 First supersonic jet flight
    1956 Hovercraft invented
    1964 Bullet train transportation invented
    1969 First manned mission (Apollo) to the Moon
    1970 First jumbo jet
    1981 Space shuttle launched

Did you see that chit. Railroad isn't even on the freakin list
of modern transportation inventions. The oldest railroad in
America goes back to 1720 which predates the list above.

And the last item on the list. The Space Shuttle.
We don't even have that #ing chit anymore, but
you're gonna come in here and use a goddamn
railroad analogy to interpret people's feelings
about government, and it's so-called direction.

It has no direction,
and it is taking away our latest achievements.

Of course people think the country is on the rong track!
