Farmers are protesting because the rail line is going to cut through some water canals and pipes. During construction on the track, over head wires, (etc.), workers would have to shut down a few of these canals and water lines that feed water to the farms. Also, they would have to tear down a Very large rural area on the outskirts of Tulare, Ca. Amtrak California, (the current rail system) may also protest, because, well, they have been running for a while. But they may partnership with the California Goverment.

Yes, and No. Yes because people have already voted. No because they need to have something constructed (a piece of track etc.)by September this year to get approved. A rumor has it that the have already done that.

It was a post-civil-war gang that went around attacking and intimidating blacks.  They wore white sheets and pretended they were ghosts.

Not just blacks.  It included Jews and other minorities as well.

Well, obviously they took it to the terrible extreme. But anti-Semitism is definitely not an invention of the Nazis (who, it might be added, targeted other groups in addition to Jews) - it's been around a long time.

I mean the Nazis took anti-Semitism to the terrible extreme. I wasn't, of course, commenting on the Klan...they took hatred to a terrible extreme also, but they took racism against African-Americans to the extreme, not Jews. :)

If you have an interest in anti-Semitism, search for "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion", it's a "classic"

Well, if I were KKK, not saying that I am, I would use a dense wood, one that burns a long time, and then tightly wrap it in a flame retardant (but not flame proof) material, and soak it in kerosene.
