With liberals, one can always count on them to do stupid things and get others to pay for it. Case-in-point, Social Security. Hatched by liberals who naturally exempted themselves from it (until Ronaldus Magnum corrected that little "error"), they bled the American taxpayer and American businesses dry, pissed away the money on every social program they could think of, emptied out the trust fund, and stuffed Owl Gore's "lockbox" chock full of paper IOUs as worthless as used toilet paper.
Naturally, it was not just at the Federal level that they screwed the American people like a three dollar whore on payday, they've done it at the state level, the Blue State level that is. They've ran every Blue State (run by the Demerrhoids for decades) into the ground, with whopping debt, crumbling infrastructure, a fleeing population, and an environment as unfriendly to business and, HORROR OF HORRORS, "profits!", as Saddam was to the Kurds, but VERYYYYYYY friendly to ever increasing taxation, and continue to do the same stupid thing, over and over, in other words, the central tenet of liberalism.
EXCERPT: "California's precipitation this season has gone off the charts. Statewide snow water content is 198 percent of normal; in the all-important Northern Sierra snowpack is 174 percent of normal. This is not only a wet year — it is one of the wettest years on record. Yet [Tuesday], we have this announcement from the Department of the Interior: that despite a nearly unprecedented abundance of water, the Bureau of Reclamation will only guarantee delivery of 45 percent of the California Central Valley's contracted water supply south of the Delta. This is the same percentage they received last year with barely average rainfall.
This is of crucial importance to the entire nation, since the Central Valley of California is one of the largest producers of our nation's food supply. California produces half of the U.S.-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables on the nation's grocery shelves and the prices you pay are directly affected by the California harvest. The deliberate decision by this administration in 2009 and 2010 to divert hundreds of billions of gallons of water away from the Central Valley destroyed a quarter million acres of the most productive farmland in America, it threw tens of thousands of families into unemployment and it affected grocery prices across the country.
At the time, the administration blamed a mild drought, but never explained why a drought justified their decision to pour 200 billion gallons of water (that we did have) directly into the Pacific Ocean."
So let the Gunny put this into context. The Demerrhoids, using the Federal Imperial Government as the sledge hammer (much as the EPA, DOE, and BATF operate), STOPS food production in one of the breadbasket's of America, losing foodstuffs, losing tax revenue, losing jobs, losing farms that in many cases, have been in the same families for generations, all for the Delta Smelt, a non taxpaying fish and like liberals, are about as useless for anything other than bait. (Libs, visit Alaska this year to find out more about being bait). And these are the same morons who want to run our healthcare?
What this appears to be is the Kenyan Usurper, taking a page from Mugabe's Zimbabwe, starving his subjects into submission.
Wait, never mind. It was Nutsy Pelosi who said that more unemployment checks equals a growing economy. Rest assured, Blue States WILL BE BAILED OUT, after decades of Mugabe-like libcommie misrule.
