    This is the same Amtrack that has lost $834 Million on concessions.

    Given that every other business I've ever read about rely on it's food and drink for high-margin profit, Amtrak is not on the right track.

    Great. Take a government funded .org thats losing money hand over fist, and target your ad dollars at the all-important 3% of the population.

    Let me make sure I understand. It's ok for the government to fund an ad campaign that targets the alternative lifestyle minority but a private individual is labeled as homophobic and accused of discrimination because he states his personal beliefs on gay marriage? Seems like discrimination to me but I'm a white, heterosexual male so who would listen to what I say.

    " We can get you to point B, lickety split"
