Railroad

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/japan/9702521/310mph-floating-trains-unveiled-in-Japan.html

California has a high speed rail authority that has been working on high speed railways for California for years now and so far we don't have any high speed rail in the state.  They plan on building a system that will go 220 miles per hour.  That's only 100 miles per hour less than the new Japanese mag lev system.

The Chinese have constructed a major high speed railway system in their nation.  As the Chinese have destroyed industry in the United States, Europe and other nations, they have invested the cash from their cheap exports in improving their infrastructure.  They determined they needed a rail system and got it built.

The United States used to lead the world in technology and transportation.  Now the Japanese have a better rail prototype and the Chinese have built a high speed system.  In the meantime the Californian government continues to spend millions, planning to spend billions, on a second class, not world class, rail system.  California is badly managed, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
