On the list of insane public policy moves we have come to expect from the current administration, Cap and Tax, Obamacare and Union Card Check, a fourth has garnered relatively little attention, although the implications for all Americans may be among the most far-reaching. The recurring theme is centralized control.
On Monday, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California will host a rare Congressional Field Hearing. A Congressional delegation will venture out of the beltway and actually devote time to a problem in our country. Better yet, they will be listening to real citizens. Sort of.
At issue is what residents are calling a government-made drought in the Central and San Joaquin Valleys of California. Legal and environmental regulations in the Endangered Species Act has resulted in the diversion of 200 billion gallons of water from the agricultural heartland of California into the Ocean.

Less to get wee-weed up about.
Water is a privilege and healthcare/abortions are rights. Remember when we were kids and we played opposites day? I guess liberals are still playing that game.
Dums ushering in the bad ole days of water and range wars.
Get these maniacs out of power NOW.
Obama is showing his Neo-Nazi colors by controlling access to nature’s most valued resource.
Free healthcare is a “right” but water is not? Somebody has been hittin’ the happy smoke again.
“Water its not a right its a privilege”
WOW. Is he TRYING to incite a rebellion? I mean wow....
What did this clown say? He really needs to go.
Obama’s constitution must begin with “We the critters”.
Because the travel distance is such a strain on both the farmers and the concerned citizens in that area, Corona and other Pro-water coalition groups are calling on all Patriots and Tea Party Activists to come and show their support for a solution in two locations. A Town Hall meeting with Representatives Nunes, McClintock, McCarthy and Bishop (R-Utah) will be held on Monday:
Fresno City Council Chambers
2600 Fresno Street, 2nd floor
Fresno, CA 90012-2944
The Oversight Field Hearing will be held:
700 N. Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA
If you will be anywhere in Southern California on Monday, please make one of the meetings. If you cannot, please be sure your Congressman is on the discharge petition. The administration that wants to control your health care, your energy and your bank, now wants to control your water.
Perhaps we the peons...
That's all the democrats view Americans as.
Who knows? Perhaps California could vote GOP in 2012. Some of you may say that is crazy but it could be just as crazy as Massachusetts voting for a republican Senator to replace Teddy.
he’s def confused on this one- water IS a RIGHT in this country!
WRONG COUNTRY PAL!
Actually, Obama’s constitution begins with “We The Government”.
But the morons of this state will just continue to vote Democrat, and to re-elect the pimp Obama and his prostitutes like Barbara Boxer—no questions asked. Then they wonder why they wallow in the sh-tter.
Communists have often starved their opponents.
