i’m paying more for my residential water because of this.
it riles me to get into the car and be told

How about better protection for California farmers?
When is the last time a smelt put a loaf of bread or a grape on your plate?
Those who work the fields and orchards feeel it too... but do Greens get that?
The enviroNuts could care less who they destroy.

This minnow is an invasive species and is not in danger of extinction. Salmon were spawning in the head waters of the Sacramento long before the present day delta was created or the minnow invaded from the San Francisco Bay.
Do the environmentalists see the dying farms as good for the planet?
The left is oblivious. Here we are in a major recession and their worried more about minnows than their fellow man.
