“Perhaps we should cut to the actuarial truth and determine how many lives it takes to equate to the cost of implementing preventative technology. The railroad industry has always resisted safety technology. Historically, railroad crossings is a perfect example of that.”

“cost estimates for "positive train control" , mandated in 2008, run from 8 to 20 billion. And the solution mandated my be iffy, function wise.

Most cities will not pay for the upgraded crossings. If the city wants to cross railroad property they get to pay.”

“Sure, makes sense to me. Why bother developing agricultural crops that actually feed people. Let's all get high and assume Doritos grow on trees.”

“Glad to see your unwavering support for drug dealers! I agree, keep marijuana illegal because if its legal the drug dealers won't profit off of it.
but hey, we need more good spirited drug dealers! So lets keep this plant illegal so they can continue to make a lot of tax free money off of a plant”

“If that upsets you, look at how the U.S. government corn subsidy program has very little to do with yellow corn kernels on your plate. What doesn't get turned into high fructose corn sugar (in your packaged foods) is used for cattle feed (a cheap gift to the beef industry) or ethanol fuel. There is no danger of marijuana supplanting the food crops that feed people on a level that the beef, processed food and gasoline industry have already done. (scroll down to the fourth graph: http://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/crops/corn/background.aspx#.Up3dJZTcomQ)”

“You are aware that DOCTORS say this is a wonderful medicine right? AND...they prescribe it to themselves as well.

Developing crops...No, Monsanto has that and there will be no development unless they do it.

Are you even aware of what is going on agriculturally? or are you just against weed no matter what due to lack of knowledge and fear?”

“It seems to me when I'm offered a job with a salary and benefits these are things promised to me in return for my labor. These things are not given to me out of the goodness of the employers heart. I work for them. What I pay and what the employer pays for my healthcare is my employment agreement. How dare the employer stipulate conditions of my healthcare just because they pay a portion of my premiums. You get my labor and skills and that's all. Stay out of my personal life.”
