    It is at least as stupid as it would be to call Obamacare, Bushcare.
    Hey, come to think of it, since Bush senior and Bob Dole came up with the idea of the individual mandate maybe I'll start calling the ACA Bushcare. Bush senior needs some kind of a legacy other than "Read my lips, no new taxes". Why not give him the credit for his idea?
    I tell you what ...I'll start calling them "Obama phones" if you start calling the ACA "Bush care" ... Hows that? Individual Mandate, Now Vilified By GOP, Was Supported By George H.W. Bush

    Snowpack here in the Colorado mountains is above average for this time of the year. I hope this will help the situation.
    NRCS/WRDS Snowpack Data
    We just got about 20 inches at my house with more forecast for the week to come.

    That could be a compliment in 20 years.
    I'm working on a way to bring water to you guys out west from the Mideast/East/Southeast.
    To make a short story, I've got water pipelines and Erie-style Canals all over the damn place.

    I've got a thread with Your Top Ten Issues and Leans.
    So far, infrastructure is becoming my latest passion, especially due to the 40-year drought.

    As we were sooooo bored during the game, we even discussed sealed truck-trailers on freight trains.
    we've got plenty of snow and looming spring floods .

    Ban housing developments in what used to be deserts from "watering" lawns and changing the ecosystem.
    Teach them to build a lawn that "absorbs" water from the air, saving ground-water .

    In my honest opinion the desert golf courses need to go first. No one should be asked to conserve water in their home just so some rich asshole in funny pants can play a Scottish pasture game in the middle of the American desert.

    Conservation, such as not having lawns and golf courses, might help some. Desalinization would produce more water, but is expensive. What we need is a water delivery system to bring water from the rain soaked north west down to the desert areas where crops can be grown.

    Crossing the Columbia River on a trip north once, I found that it was dumping a million cubic feet per second into the ocean. Bring even a little of that water to California and southern Nevada, and we'd have plenty.

    cool--I can tell you this--the Western range of Rocky Mtn Natl Pk, called the Never-Summer mtns,
    still has its water diverted to Denver and the Front Range.

    I'm counting on you to talk intelligent drought stuff with me, please.
    What do you know of any talk over the decades about desalination plants ?
