It was arguably needed at its beginning, but its purpose has been completely turned on its head.

“Water conservation”?!? What do they think water otherwise turns into? Are they not aware of the water cycle?

I can see that some parts of the country, i.e. California, have issues with water shortages. I live in Iowa; water is plentiful, clean, and cheap here, and there’s absolutely no reason or need to “conserve” it.

We passed the EPA building when marched in DC on Saturday. I pointed to it and told my son that it was a monstrosity of wasted tax-payer money.

(I probably should have said that about every government agency building in DC!)

Wait until the Ogallala Aquifer is tapped out and Nebraska attacks Iowa for its water. That aside, the opposite of conserve is waste; why would you want to waste anything, let alone water? You recognize water as the just about the only resource vital to all life on this planet, don't you? And you understand the resource is finite? We ruin water all the time - and we just can't make more.

Sure we can. It's called "evaporation" followed by "condensation". AKA "rain."

What happens when I "waste" it? It evaporates, forms into clouds, and falls as rain. "Using" water does not destroy it.

No need to worry, campers. When Iran nukes us with ICBMs Obama says they don't have... and there is not any missile defense to stop them, lawn care will be the least of our problems.

Finding more beer... will be the bitch!!!

Water—a renewable resource!

All public water resources have been destroyed due to water vapor being a greenhouse gas and due to the release of dangerous dihydrogen monoxide molecules.

EPA has ruled that capture of rainfall for the purpose of drinking, washing, or watering will be illegal. All water must be turned in to the government. Swimming is now illegal.

All urine must be turned in as well.

Water will be put on the list of pollutants. All water is now government property and will be stored in giant caverns to be dug with stimulus money.

The Great Lakes will be drained into the caverns as well and public housing will be built in the basins.

All farming and ownership of animals is henceforth illegal.

Muslims, for religious purposes, are exempt from all rulings. The same applies to the President, his family and friends, and all members of Congress past and present. Union members, all African-Americans, and gay/lesbians are also exempt. This does not apply to the military.

Those with multiple exemptions may sell these exemptions.

Citizens are asked to turn in anyone who appears to have water or who is doing anything fishy.

Hey... who is that robot dude in your post, with the Dallas Cowboys star on his service door? I see him around all the time but I don’t know who he is. He seems like a really cool guy to me.

Re: ...who is that robot dude in your post...

It is my prime ego... when I star in “Futurama”

Go to my FR homepage http://www.freerepublic.com/~bender2/ and way down is a full explanation.

BTW it is just after the nude shot of Kiran Chetry... from "Playboy" magazine.

It wasn’t brief, it was programming. I think the content of the link may have changed.

I don't know. I don't think I am diabolical enough. I'm sure I left some loopholes in my proposal where the wealthy could get illegal water.

Except that the average front lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four every day.

That reduces CO2.

That’s not making water, it converting it from one state to the another. All of the water on Earth, every drop, is all there is.

"And you understand the resource is finite? We ruin water all the time - and we just can't make more.

So the EPA abolished the Water Cycle?

Are you also worried about all the oxygen being "ruined"?

Your kidding, right?

And you know what happens when you drink sea water - it's bad.

There's this pesky thing called a water budget. What it boils down to (no pun intended), is that only a certain percentage of the planet's water is going to be available at any given time; when we trash that, we're screwed. Sure, we could pollute every drop of water on Earth, and sooner or later, it would be cleansed by natural processes - but we probably don't want to wait the several hundred of thousand years it's going to take.

It’s not pretty hard - it’s damned near impossible. It’s easy to render it useless, however.

Where I live, we have water treatment plants that put it right back into use. We even drink it.
