Gentry Liberals Are Going to Force Your Town to Buy Billion-Dollar Toy Trains and There's Nothing You Can Do About It

Good piece at the Federalist on gentry liberals' insane insistence on paying hundreds of millions of dollars to install horrifically-outdated streetcars in their towns and cities.

Why do this? Well, I can only think because they've seen streetcars in movies, and think they look Classy. And they might look classy indeed. But then, anyone with any actual experience with streetcars would point out:

1. They're very slow

2. They slow down all vehicular traffic as well

3. They're very dangerous and are responsible for tremendous vehicular and bodily damage every year

4. And they cost a lot of money to provide you with nothing but downsides

But they do look classy, huh? Just like a movie!

I can't help but think gentry liberals do not like buses because The Poors ride buses, and so they're determined to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a dangerous, slow, expensive and very outdated transportation system that they don't associate with The Poors.

I'd like to point out to them that the Poors they're trying to avoid will in fact ride the streetcars too, if available, just as they ride the buses now.

Still, as the article points out, streetcars are really more of a Shelbyville idea.
