Iowa last night - Did somebody trigger the Thompson Harmonizer?

Judging by where the Thompson Harmonizer had its effects in the book, it must have been located near Waterloo, Iowa or perhaps as far south as Iowa City.

According to
https://www.facebook.com/AtlasShrugge...
the Taggart Transcontinental system had a rail from Chicago to Des Moines and then gradually WSW toward Colorado.

Where did the Taggart Bridge cross the Mississippi River?

    The linked source is my own article at Conservapedia. To repeat from the source: I picked Dunkertown, Iowa, which is near Waterloo, but smaller. Which would make sense, because the Project architects would pick a small town at the center of a circle that includes several large cities.

    The Taggart Bridge likely crossed the Mississippi near the real-life town or Rock Island, Illinois.

    Now to the matter at hand: I fully concur in the judgment I see here. How can these people hope to develop and run a command economy when they can't run a simple thing like a State-wide caucus?

    But I see something deeper. The Democratic Party is a patronage machine. Senator Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.) is an ideologue, and does not play the machine game. We see here the difference between the Orren Boyle and--well, not so much the Cuffy Meigs faction. It would be more as if Ramirez, head of the communist party in Chile and then head-of-state of the People's State of Chile, ran a faction in the looters' economy in the USA. So you might as well ask here: not whether someone triggered the Xylophone, but whether Francisco d'Anconia blew up a key industrial facility.

    Either way, we can all say "Brother, you asked for it!" with perfect justice.

    As a postscript: Hillary Clinton is Cuffy Meigs. She's the type who would steal and sell the assets of a command economy.

      Thank you, Temlakos, for the Conservapaedia site. It is a long time since we have seen you in the Gulch! I guessed that Rock Island was pretty close for the Taggart Bridge. I figured no one knew Dunkertown, Iowa, although it is appropriately named for the mess that happened in Iowa on Monday night.

      +1 for "Brother, you asked for it!"

    In case anybody missed it, it will surprise no one to learn that Soros is the #1 funding source behind Shadow:

    I suspect that the deep state is trying to eliminate anything that diminishes Biden's chances to be president. They definitely hate Sanders and want him gone, like they did in 2016. Warren will self destruct by herself. Butthead is there, but will never win either.

      The following is being said satirically, so don't downvote me.

      Effects of the Thompson Harmonizer:
      1) Everyone will all think the same non-thought.
      2) Freedom of speech, thought, expression, etc.: No to that. Why shouldn't be more like China or the Soviet Union? Should we not all take our honeymoons in Moscow?
