http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-09-17/china-u-s-reach-agreement-on-high-speed-rail-before-xi-visit It doesn't appear that America can do very much these days, domestically? Is this just jobs Americans are unwilling to do?

Do we have a company in this business that
can outbid China or India? I don't think so.
Those are train countries and we are not.
They have masses of people that need mass
transport, we never have.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

We have plenty of competent engineers and builders, steel manufacturers, etc.

This is the same thing the Chinese are doing in Africa, building and intercontinental railway probably using surplus US money. Another form of dumping the excess profits from our outsourcing.

American company's trying to compete with Chinese company's is ridiculus. Our bidders wouldn't be competing head to head with their builders who are all state sponsored. Think uber versus yellow cab on a global scale.

We are already trading debt for equity. We are selling toll roads, probably ports, the chinese are drilling for nat. gas in Wyoming. It sounds like its a good deal for the taxpayers or the country, but it is a way of selling the country to foreign interests. It is all part of the big plan. Sell the water company's the roads, the utility's, whatever can be denationalized will be.

Just like the Nafta road from Mexico to Canada. We are being gutted, like fish. This low skilled under utilized generation largely without skills and large college loans, are not going to want to pay into the SS system, militarized police, it's all part of the toilet bowl effect of global domination.

As long as everyone is aware that they are turning the country, that their forefathers sacrificed their lives for over to the global bankers, there is no need for borders or foreign wars. What are we defending?

If this is like their railroad in Africa or the pipeline across the stan country's, the management and a lot of the labor will be Chinese. Taxpayers will be giving more of the country away, hand over fist.

We are finally having to pay for all the handouts and eat now/pay later programs since the mid-1960s. The toll roads and parking meters are what happens to a colony, not a real nation. Meanwhile allow more and more illegal immigration in the hope of cultivating voters for more of the above. Call those who disagree "mean" and "racist!"

Reckoning is coming and not far off.
