Here is some more compelling statistics about water usage per golfer:
The Big Thirst: NothingFact: A single, 18-hole round of golf at a typical Las Vegas golf course requires 2,507 gallons of water.
That's not "virtual water," it's the actual amount of water that has to be sprinklered onto the golf course to get it ready, each night, for each golfer.
What that means is that, every time a golfer steps to a tee in Las Vegas, that one hole required 139 gallons of water to prepare, just for that one golfer that day.
That means that a foursome in Las Vegas, playing 18 holes, will use as much water as typical family in the U.S. uses in a month. Pause and consider what the driest city in America, Las Vegas, has to tell us about golf and water, sustainability and the reality of changing water habits
When push comes to shove and the water really starts to run out in the southwest common people will not be allowed to water their lawns, wash their cars or flush number one ... But somehow, I'm sure, golf courses will still be allowed to turn barren desert into the lush rolling verdant hills of Scotland at everyone else's expense.
All for a "game".
What good did that Obama phone do you ?

The Truth About The Obama Phone | ThinkProgressSince 2009, there has been an urban myth that Obama created a program to provide free phones to low-income Americans at taxpayer expense. There is, in fact, a government program that will provide low-income people with a free or low cost cell phone. It was started in 2008 under George W. Bush.
The idea of providing low-income individuals with subsidized phone service was originated in the Reagan administration following the break-up of AT&T in 1984. (It was expanded and formalized by the Telecommunications Act of 1996.) The program is paid for by telecommunications companies through an independent non-profit, not through tax revenue.
http://www.examiner.com/article/gop-...008-under-bushAs it happens the "Obama phone" actually was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2008. The program is called "SafeLink Wireless." An article from August 2008 confirms this.

They are more correctly called Bush phones.
But OOPS... there's those pesky little things called facts that always seem to get in the way of your sophomoric partisan hackery.
