Are you not aware that the Fed Gov shut off 100% of the water to many central California farms, deferring to EPA and in favor of a 2” long fish. This caused their land to go completely barren and they lost an entire years produce. Some have gone bankrupt.
If Farmers will let their farms go barren without water, and lose a year’s income due to EPA enforcement, then I don’t see them fighting over a ditch.
In a sane world, we would be charging the doors of EPA with ropes in hand, but that is not the world we live in. Instead, EPA destroys farms with impunity.
Nor do I. Furthermore, if the Dept. of Ed. has swat teams, how far behind can the EPA be, if they are behind at all.
If citizens resort to civilized methods like the courts, the agencies have virtually unlimited resources to fight back. Sure, citizens occasionally win and the EPA retaliates by releasing a new flurry of regulations. I hear a lot of people talk big about resisting, but when push comes to shove, they see they are outgunned and back down.
I agree with your conclusion; this is not a sane world.
The 2” fish is not the real issue. It’s only what the fed says.
The farmers’ bankruptcies tell the feds that their policies are working. They want to get rid of all private farms so they can easily control the food supply through governement run farms with peasant labor.
