Do Politicians Take Idiot Pills?
Rational thought no longer exists. Both parties just
regurgitate tired slogans that have no meaning.
California is in a drought and the two parties react by either repeating stupid slogans or proposing things that only make matters worse.
As a John Muir Conservative Conservationist I recoil in horror at the total lack of any thinking by our political hacks and a desire on their part to destroy our natural heritage.
With all the hacks in the California legislature and Congress you would think there would be at least one politician with an original idea.
Republicans - House Speaker John Boehner & company paraded around the Central Valley searching for votes and campaign money from giant agri-business interests. Republicans repeated the tired slogan "man over fish" which required no new thought whatsoever, but plays well on TV.
The long range GOP "solution" for a lack of rain is to rape the Sacramento Delta, suck it dry, created an environmental disaster and ship the water to farmers who just happen to donate to the Republicans.
|Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir |
Both are turning over in their graves at
the stupidity of our modern politicians.
Democrats - Democrat Governor Jerry Brown and the Demo legislature are no better. They want to build giant multi-billion dollars tunnels under the Delta as payoffs to unions and friendly businessmen for their campaign money.
The water of the Delta would then be sucked dry, create an environmental disaster and shipped south to pay off even more campaign contributors.
Now we have Comrade Obama visiting California's agricultural heartland Friday to meet with community leaders, farmers and others and announce "initiatives" to help the drought-stricken Central Valley. Initiatives that do absolutely nothing to create new water.
Obama repeated his tired slogan of "Global Warming" and then proposed giving away tax money to those impacted by the drought:
- $100 million in livestock-disaster assistance for California ranchers.
- $60 million for food banks to help families hurt financially by the drought.
Giving away money - it will not water a single plant nor fill a single drinking glass, but it looks good to the non-thinking mouth-breathers watching the evening news.
Failure in America - It is an amazing thing to watch the failure of both parties in action.
The economy of California is on the line and we get hacks who do nothing to create a single drop of new water. No new dams, no new water storage facilities and no desalination plants to meet the needs of farms and cities.
The best both sides can come up with is proposals to fight over existing water supplies and destroy our natural heritage.

Recently House Speaker John Boehner, right, spoke at a Bakersfield farm about California's drought. Listening are, from left, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, and Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare.
Both Republicans and Democrats have their own plans to "solve" the California drought problem. Simply, both parties want to create an environmental disaster and rape the Sacramento Delta dry in order to ship the water south to pay off their big money political supporters.
