While our leaders, including the GOD EMPEROR Himself, busy themselves with prostration to Israel, warmongering against Syria and Russia, and slashing the health benefits of poor Whites in Appalachia, our infrastructure continues to fall apart.
Through a combination of employed diversities, selfish ideas of “fiscal conservatism,” and just plain neglect, we now rank as a nation that is nothing more than a laughing stock for the rest of the world – including the typically-rigid East Asians.
At least they don’t currently suffer from massive train crashes on a now-monthly basis.

At least 2 people are dead and at least another 70 injured after an Amtrak passenger train collided with a freight train in South Carolina early Sunday morning, officials said.
The two deaths occurred in the Amtrak train, not the freight train, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher confirmed.
Injuries ranged from minor cuts to broken bones, a spokesman for the South Carolina Emergency Management Division told CNN.
People going to visit their relatives via an overpriced and antiquated train end up with slashed faces and broken bones – somewhere a very Happy Merchant is rubbing his clawed hands in glee.
Amtrak initially said in a statement, “Amtrak Train 91, operating between New York and Miami, came in contact with a CSX freight train at around 2:35 am in Cayce, South Carolina.”
The statement continued, “The lead engine derailed, as well as some passenger cars. There were 8 crew members and approximately 139 passengers, with injuries reported. Local authorities are on the scene responding. More information will be provided as available.”
My guess (note that I’m just going on past incidents here) is that somebody was either under the influence of drink/drugs, or under the influence of inferior genetics.
I suppose we could be dealing with tracks that were falling apart as well – a combination of the two factors is probably the safest bet here.
And don’t think that anything is actually going to get done following this third disaster in fifty days – the GOP is too focused on prison reform and entitlement cuts to dare to spend the shekels needed to bring this country back from the brink of Third-World status.
