Mooning Amtrak

Well, this is one way I've never thought of to express my dissatisfaction with the wasteful use of government funds on Amtrak:

Mooning of Amtrak in Orange County, Calif. The 28th Annual Mooning took place this past weekend.

In some cases Amtrak is subsidized so heavily, that it would be cheaper for taxpayers to buy airline tickets for every single passenger, so I say moon away!

Amtrak is by far the most highly subsidized form of intercity transportation. The average taxpayer subsidy per Amtrak rider is $100, or 40 percent of the total per-passenger cost. On some of the long-distance routes, such as New York to Los Angeles, the taxpayer subsidy per passenger exceeds $1,000. It would be cheaper for taxpayers to close down expensive lines and purchase discount round-trip airfare for all the Amtrak riders.
