I fully support CalTrain & HSR. I've lived in Menlo Park for 25 years. The city has had, and failed to act, on track & road separation many times.
I am tired of the council wasting taxpayer money for the dozen or two property owners on the right of way. Work for a reasonable design and quit trying to Frak up the HSR. If you want an extra cost design, see if you can get the city's voters to pass a bond issue for the extra cost. When you can't, then get out of the way.

If you're actually opposed to "wasting taxpayer money", then you should be completely opposed to HSR.
And you are assuming that the only people against HSR are "the dozen or two property owners on the right of way". Anyone that has actually kept up on news, read their plans, understands Prop 1a or understands the California constitution should be opposed to HSR.
That said, I'd agree that there are people that are opposed to change just for the sake of change. Just like there are people that are in favor of change just for the sake of change (even if it doesn't address the actual problems that need addressing), such as yourself.
