Thread: The Water Police have arrived!

    Perhaps the number of flushes in D.C. should be looked into. Lot of crap comes from there.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    If we can keep this thread on topic, the point I was trying to make by posting this thread is that Big Brother is now telling Californians that they're not allowed to use the water they pay for however they want.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    The massive growth usually ceases when the purchasing market dries up. Until lately, that market is usually more supply and demand than government encouraged. Have you noticed that Zero Population Growth has become pretty-much all but mute? We now have massive amounts of purchasers.

    It's slowed now but the local governments are still approving new housing. Of course the state has a requirement on all the cities that they have to have a certain amount of growth whether they want it or not. But that's Kalifornia and Dem politics for you.

    The reasoning behind that is most likely political. Think about it: if population growth slows or stops, then California stands to lose seats in Congress, and thus, electoral votes, and thus, influence. Why do you think the state is so immigrant friendly?

    I think you give the Dem's credit for too much brain power. They can't think that complexly.

    The time will come when the only possessions that will matter are what I like to refer to as the 3 F's, FOOD(include water), FUEL, And FIREARMS(Include ammo). Money, gold, jewels, and other things presently perceived as valuable will be worthless.

    Oh yes they can, especially when it comes to the possibility of losing seats in Congress and Electoral College influence.

    Without the subsidized water supplied to western states the population of California would be less than 1/3 of what it is and food for the eastern states would cost twice as much is you could get it. As for who owns it, a large portion comes from other states and in most of the west when you by property you better check on the warter rights. If you want free market water anywhere the US you better get ready to pay a high price for it. We saw what happened to electricity when it was moved to a free market deal for the generation and transmission of it.

    The use of dams for water to supply power has already caused more environmental damage and deaths than nuclear powerplants ever will. We are now starting to realize that and if we don't start conservation of our water global warming, the Arabs and gun control are going to be the least of our problems.

    If you are talking about Kalifornia, it wasn't because of a free market but rather because of political stupidity that interfered with the free market. As usual the problem was the government interference.

    Baloney! The lakes created are a boon to mankind (and animals). The control of flooding again is a boon. But you are correct that nuclear is the safest and best at present as a solution for energy. Southern Kalifornia desperately needs for more dams to be put up for saving what water as it get.
