Skip to comments.Feinstein: Enviros no help on California drought
Posted on 05/15/2014 4:06:24 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Sen. Dianne Feinstein will try to fast-track farm-friendly drought legislation through the Senate over the objections of environmentalists, who the senator complains have done nothing to help her adapt California's aging water system to deal with climate change and the addition of millions of thirsty residents.
Feinstein's bill alarms both environmentalists and Bay Area House Democrats, who fear she would tilt California water policy away from the state's devastated salmon runs.
Asked about opposition from environmental groups, Feinstein said, "Well, that's really too bad, isn't it? I would be very happy to know what they propose. ... I have not had a single constructive view from environmentalists of how to provide water when there is no snowpack."

Shrimp Boy was a big-time SF gangsta but got off and then joined gummint, doing all kinds of great “mentoring”.

YA KNOW..? IT IS SO MYSTERIOUS....
she (DiFi) will take care of her donors
Shove it Diane you POS. You helped to create these enviro wackjobs so shove it.
Live by liberalism, die by liberalism.
liberal communist of the old school. One who still believed people had a right to make a living and, um, grow food. Thin gruel, but it still sets her apart from the new left.
I ruv Babala..! What you talk 'bout, huh...?
someone brought her to her senses? or is it because it is now biting too close to home?
She doesn’t give a crap about farmers, it is the wineries and the almond growers that represent billions in exports for California now at risk.
Perhaps she received a briefing on the effects ‘food riots’ would have on her and other democrats reelection chances in the future?
The further left they force the pendulum the further right it will swing when it is finally released.
In “A Short History of Nearly Everything” the author, Bill Bryson, states that of all the things that have ever lived on Earth, most, 99.99% are extinct. You know, if the snail darters, desert tortoises and California salmon become extinct, something else will take their place. What it means is the environment they needed to survive has changed. That clears the path for something that is adapted to the new environment. If it comes down to all the farmers in California or the salmon, I vote farmers.
She went to DC to do good.
And she's done very well indeed.
It’s the one job where people spend 10s of millions to get a job that “pays” 10s of thousands.
Her husband used to head URS.
That and a seat on the Senate Committee on Appropriations.
Plus all you can steal.
Even CNBC admitted that members of Congress achieve “market crushing” investment returns due to insider info access.
Compared with Barbara Boxer, she’s a genius.
Diane, I have a suggestion. Let the farmers use the water from Hetch Hetchy for the crops or even better, tear it down. If it gets torn down I will stand back to watch what SF will do without any water. That could produce a reality check.

Nice to see that your meds are not working today!
You obviously haven’t been around here long enough to recognize sarcasm when you see it.
I hope it gets to PeLousey’s vineyards soon.
“You obviously havent been around here long enough to recognize sarcasm when you see it.”
Well, it does come in a number of sizes and shapes you will have to admit. But as you know, the enviroidiots here would seriously like to remove the Hetch Hechy Dam, and a number of the North Coast rivers dams (the fish and rodents uber alles crowd)!
But that is the irony of the whole situation. They want to “protect” the environment as long as it doesn’t apply to them. If they were serious about applying their ideas equally they would get their reality check pretty quick. Most tree huggers think that they are morally superior to the rest of us, therefore the rules do not apply to them. They should be able to see Yosemite, and other areas of this state, but not the rest of us.
My liberal brother has lectured me more than once about how I should act and be, only to prove himself to be a huge hypocrite.

Yeah, it’s the old “everyone wants to fly, but nobody wants to live next to the airport.”
P.J. O’Rourke said it best recently:
“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child - miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”
Does that fit anyone you know?
It has been a tough road, but he is finally starting to come over to the dark side.
As for me, I cannot wait until I can leave this moral sewer. Hubby and I are packing up and leaving for Alaska ASAP.
IOW, expect her to be arrested for gun-running, or for one of her actual corruptions.
