Good post! I don't think it says what you want it to say though. Who controls Congress, and has for a length of time? Do they not know what they fund? Apparently not.

Towards the end of your link. https://www.mail.com/news/politics/...-california-water-pr.html#.7518-stage-hero1-1

"The public is paying for what a private party is supposed to pay for," Obegi said. "That is taking the public's money, and that's not OK." A former lobbyist for Westlands, David Bernhardt, has been a top official in the Interior Department under the George W. Bush administration and again under Trump. Critics long have said Westlands has benefited from its ties to the federal agency, which the water district and Interior deny.
"I wish I were surprised to learn that the Westlands Water District colluded with the Interior Department to hide millions of dollars in unauthorized payments from Congress, but this is typical of the longstanding and incestuous relationship between the largest irrigation district in the country and its federal patrons," said U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman, a California Democrat.

So....A few rich investment firm-owned "Farms" get to take ALL of the states water to make their money(And probably drive out of business any small farmers left)......And the taxpayers get to pay for it all.........At least we can send a bunch of water to Saudi Arabia so the ruling class there can eat their Kobe beef.....Meanwhile, the Delta dies, the N. CA lakes will run dry, etc.....

I think we need to pass a law that requires all CV farms to grow only yearly crops- NOT NUT TREES- and then, during drought years, they can't grow rice or alfalfa.....I would like to also see where small farmers get their water for FREE.....But there has to be NO relationship with any other farms for this...benefit......

Farms in CA use 80% of the CONTROLLED water in the state- LA does NOT use a lot of water.....If all of the Municipal users in CA cut back 10% that would cut total State >controlled< water usage by 2%.....If the farms cut back 10%, that would cut total usage by 8%.....Simple fact...

And the SJ valley farmers claim that "We were here first- ALL of the water belongs to us!!!"....Yet, Trinity lake water NEVER flowed into the CV/Sacto/San Joaquin until 1961 when the Clear Creek Tunnels were finished- The water flowed down teh Trinity river to the Klamath and out to the Ocean...

I can't hear you.
I have to say; This is exactly why the Hyper-cons all want Putin to run this country....They have been listening to FAUX news- which is run by Putin's pal Rupert Murdoch...and Ruppy has been laying the groundwork for Putin to take over the US....They NEVER question what Ruppy tells them, and never will listen to any OTHER source of news.....The Hyper-cons make it very obvious that they are enthralled with the "Real HE-man Vlad"....And so the real threat from Russia comes- not from the lefty-loonies- but from the "Patriotic" Righties....They are, as we speak, selling America to Russia.......

Traitors, who would be in jail if Ike was still around (Or Reagan, or Nixon or any real conservative!)

I'm not even sure if they need to be conservative. What's being done is wrong. I have a feeling that some of the white house group and supporters may get their hands slapped. The scary part is they don't appear smart enough to cover their trail, and yet they are running the country.

PS. It's kind of funny when someone makes them self look like a fool by replying nonsense. One should never reply to something when they don't know what they are replying to, it's just dumb, dumb, dumb. Oh well. (This refers to NICE PAIR of course.)

I am curious :confused:...... which one of NP's replies in this thread are you referencing when you say, "One should never reply to something when they don't know what they are replying to, it's just dumb, dumb, dumb (This refers to NICE PAIR of course.) "? :dunno:

Snic....I did not post anything political- simply facts and in no way did I disagree with Nice pair's posting.....Yet, because he has me on ignore, he arrogantly posts- basically saying "Nah-nah! I can't see your stupid liberal post".......This kind of equates to me banging on your door and you telling your wife "Ignore him.....He's an idiot!".....While your garage burns to the ground.....

Although most of BOTH parties' people ONLY listen to their party and ignore ANYTHING the other side says....We are in dire need of clear and concise info so we can make good decisions......Everyone should not only listen better, but also QUESTION their own sources.....Things are not going well for our country.....

Just my opinion, Jerry brown is an idiot and this grab for water will go down as a very bad thing for 99% of CA, bad for the USA, and only good for a few FOREIGN investment firms who will reap billions by stealing all water from CA....

It applies to all of his posts, or anyone else's. I CAN READ HIS POSTS.
The fact that he also has CVXJET on ignore makes it even more ridiculous.

NICE PAIR is not looking for the truth or even facts, he only wants to see or hear what he wants to see or hear.
As I said earlier, DUMB, DUMB, DUMB.

If someone wants to ignore someone that's an option, but to feel a need to advertise it and repost it, is really grandstanding and just showing stupidity.
Who's supposed to care? I don't, and doubt that anyone else does either.

Um...are you seriously implying that your posts contain truth and facts??

"Oboy" Jimmie, someone finally quoted you so I get to see what you think.
I'm kinda OK with you thinking I'm just dumb, dumb, dumb.
Now, how does someone as intelligent as you think the water programs in CA are in any way helpful to anything other than $$$ in some crooked politicians & his cronies pockets?

"Your turn"

Little off topic, but I always got a kick out of this situation...

Note where the idiot says "no fossil fuel is used to heat the building"...

Any guesses how the steam is generated?

I don't know the details on the water deal. Most of my comments were actually about replying to posts being made when you/they have no idea what the posts were about. I still feel that way about the replies.

As far as the water program, a large part of it is a California deal and I don't know the details. What I've seen makes me wonder about the Federal aspect approving the money. You're critical of anything the Governor does because he's Democratic as is a large part of the California politicians. But, the Federal Congress is definitely Republican and they approved a lot too. It just goes to show that when special interest groups put enough money together they can buy Politicians, and it doesn't make any difference which side.

Being from Texas which is definitely Republican run, we see the oil and gas industry doing it all the time. Of course, maybe the water deal in California is a way of creating jobs. It's what the oil and gas industry does, or so they say. That's what many industries use to get their pork barrel projects through. Usually the number of jobs created that are promised are 20-50 times more than actually created. They just count the jobs multiple times. It's how the ultra wealthy stay that way? There will be big money for a few people.

To be honest, I'm a little prejudice. We get a lot of produce from California that's really good.
I could be like some who would reply DRILL, BABY DRILL, if I had posted something like this, but I won't because I do understand you concern.
Since you probably won't see this, that's to bad.

Possibly hot air from politician's could heat these buildings?

Anything that shows how backwards thinking our city gov.coms are is more than on topic. :))THumbsUp

possibly those peeps are dumb, dumb, dumber than me.

Technically, your idiot is correct. The water is used to heat the buildings.
:eek:mg: There we have it! Liberal logic and thinking at its best. Doesn't' matter that fossil fuels were used to generate the steam......

No fossil fuels entered any of the buildings, therefore, no fossil fuels were utilized to heat them :)hammers



For the record: This is undeniably the BEST example to date of, "Dumb, Dumb, & Dumb :)hand
