It is certainly better to use tar sands oil than job killing, child rapist, child killer, ISIS terrorist funding Oil from the Middle East.

Proper rail investments prevent derailing, and are of multi-use benefit now and in the future when there is no oil or tar sands, or gas is 20 bucks a gallon. I suppose the XL could be retro fitted with vacuum tubes. The GOP could put future candidates in tubes to get them out of Canada without the hassle of customs and immigration. The Jetsons used them, and a billionaire is building one now, for the elite.

japans-maglev-train-notches-up-new-world-speed-record-in-test-run Japan, China, South Korea, Europe, South America, or all developed countries have invested in rail. However, the US plutocracy does not, because they have private jets and helicopters, and they own congress.

btw, the space project that just sent Pluto data got to the moon in 11 minutes when it launched*. Apollo 11 and 13 took 3 days to get to the moon.

*I don't know who built it, maybe the US did. It was launched under W. Republicans are allowed to invest in science and infrastructure, or borrow for it, like its military adventures are charged.
