If a straight guy was sexting his girlfriend, would you blame his being straight as the reason?

And this was the crash that the Gubermint initiated the PTC requirement for all engines. The problem was that the technology didn’t exist. I worked until 2011 for Safetran Systems in California until they moved out of state (now owned by Siemons) they were hard at work on the system but ultimately couldnt get there act together. Bottom line Ptc has only been released to the railroads for a couple of years and retrofit install for each engine is about a week. There is just no way the tens of thousands of engines that require PTC are all fitted at this point. The clown on Greta tonight is a typical lefty, “infrastructure....money money money” is the problem. Ask Odunga and the missing 800 billion. And yet the Gov. subsidized Amtrack will have their PTC install@ed before the Gov. deadline.
