    The fact that its 2021 and not 1921 and yet core parts of the passenger rail network are not electrified is pretty mind boggling anyway.

    Standard Oil was bastards.

    I mean sure, but its been a century since they broke up and the rail system is still basically running on 1912 era technology. Refined 1912 era technology, but still. And while passenger rail may be marginal in the US, freight really isn’t. Its like if 99% of the US still had dirt roads because no one in the government ever bothered to invest in pavement.

    It's because a different industry actively scuttled progress. So it's more like having dirt roads because 4x4 manufacturers convinced the government no one needs pavement.

    The main reason freight isn't electrified is because most places have a loading gauge of the sky. Vast swathes of the country don't need any tunnels or overpasses and so everything is run double stacked. (Literally ~70% of container freight on rails) I think there have even been attempts at running triple stacked containers. The clearance you'd need for that to connect the locomotive to the wires with a pantograph makes things more tricky, and the alternative means cutting efficiency and raising costs by a literal factor of 2.

    Sure, it would be a logistics and engineering problem to make a pantograph that would allow for double stacked freight, but right now we literally have 99% of trains in the US run on electric motors that carry around massive 100 ton electric generators with them wherever they go rather than just running some wires, so...

    In news that will probably not shock anyone, animated Axe Body Spray douchebag Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is under DoJ investigation for trafficking a 17 year old girl.

    Gross but not technically statutory rape, but still trafficking a minor across state lines. After that weird thing with his mystery adopted teenage 'son' last year, I was wondering when some new news would break.

    Assholes the whole lot of them. Either rapists or covering up for rapists across the whole GOP.

    Dude is a representative, DeSantis don't get to appoint shit. Granted, he might be able drag things out for the most favorable time to hold a special election to get a republican in and he might not have to do that, but that really depends on whether it's his call to make. All said if the constituents of the district are awful enough that any old name with an R next to it will get their vote, then no BS is needed for republicans to keep the seat.

    Anyways, was this also one of the fuckers that wanted to declare the winner despite the will of the people?

    The telling thing is he’s arguing about the legal predicament, not the moral ground, which he has obviously lost. Like he’s trying to squirm out of charges, but is admitting to having sex with a goddamn teenager when he was how old? And held how much more power and authority than them? And paid for their accomodations?

    I came here to post the exact same thing after seeing the video elsewhere, looooool. Tucker does that face all the time and it's infuriating and him listening to Gaetz ramble on about how innocent he is of trafficking and all the other weird shit he brought up is the only time that I thought it actually made sense.

    What’s funny is all conservatives are in a kind of collective bargaining of evil, where they all get together and have their own little evils they need to protect and so as a collective they assume everyone will protect everyone else and so you get lots of “hey we all do” and “am I right guys?” They’re all in it for themselves and for their own selfishness, and the dumber ones mistake that mutual cover for brotherhood

    This is one where I am pretty sure that even if it turns out none of the allegations about trafficking are true and DoJ drops the investigation, Gaetz is well and truly done. He isn't leaning into 'she said she was 18' or anything of that nature, he isn't really even trying to deny the charges so much as just saying he is being blackmailed.

    Which to be fair, maybe he is being blackmailed. Wouldn't care, couldn't happen to a nicer asshole. But if that blackmail material is, you know, him having sex with a minor (age of consent or not) and then violating sex trafficking laws by flying her around, it is completely tangential to his career being over.

    I'm betting by the end of this he is going to be PNG and not even able to get a slot on Newsmax or any of the shit networks. No loyalty among the right wing once you've outlived your usefulness.

    Honestly, I think it depends on if Trump punts him to the curb or not. I'd wager he will, and Gaetz will be the latest in a long line of "He won't turn on ME!" participants in Loser Apprentice.

    But I can also see the possibility that Trump doesn't, in a fit of pique, as running with this is exactly the kind of "own the libs" shit that got hundreds of thousands of people killed. That this is just another witch hunt against a Trump supporter.

    It should be noted, that this investigation was started under Barr, and that Trump and his advisors were briefed on it while he was still President. That'll be skipped over in statements/coverage, if they decide it's a witch hunt (cause it doesn't fit their narrative if it's not under Biden).

    Gaetz claims he's being extorted but like... the story broke. So where is the "give us money or else" part of his claim?

    Also seeing as he name-dropped someone and accused him of a crime, doesn't that open the door to civil action in a court?
