    If your family lives out west, you already know how desperate the situation is.

    A water pipeline from south of the confluence of the Ohio/Mississippi all the way to Lake Mead with excess flood water is my idea,
    The pipeline could be giiving water along the way when needed.
    And, it would intersect with KXL.
    Just think, if a water pipeline spills, local water won't get contaminated .
    Are you sure about that?

    But strong on facts--which is all that really matters right now.
    I was the kind of teacher who would take his ideas to administartors behind closed doors.
    That way, noone knew where they came from and they got adopted.
    It comes with the territory of being a "lightning rod" .

    I give you EIGHT lines of thought and science reasoning.
    You give me FIVE words from the scatt dictionary.
    I'm done here with you .

    Don't think too much of yourself do you?

    Seemed like a simple question...What's the matter? In your world of 'science' you aren't allowed to be questioned? Seems rather unscientific if you ask me.....

    Do you have anything to add to the Lake Mead problem besides snarky one-liners at my well-thought-out proposals ?

    Maybe if I call it "water inequality" it would get the attention of some, since it is mostly western states in drought.
    But wait, you haven't heard any talk so far about looming Eastern floods
    due to frozen rivers, lack of thaw, and record snow-pack east of the Mississippi .
    Language is everything. I once was trying to get some of available grant money for a pre-school for low income families. I submitted request after request and was turned down. And then in a conference with my staff, a light bulb went on. We didn't change a thing in the grant request other than changing 'low income families' to 'pre-delinquent children'. (These were all 3, 4, and 5 yr olds.) We got our grant almost immediately.

    So you're not using the right approach here friend. If you want the leftists to get on board, point out that you're transferring water to the H2O oppressed people of the world and the GOP opposes that. They'll be scrambling all over themselves to support that pipeline.

    What am I good for? How about getting the products, and food you use to you on time for you to use them? Is that enough?

    You mean other than the very type of attacks you are lobbing at me? Nah, I could never match up to the picture of your self you have in your own minds eye....

    The Voice, by the Moody Blues.
    The voices of the Great GOP Presidents that I idolize--Lincoln, TR, IKE--are ringing in my ear.
    They were men with Great Vision and Great Ideas.
    Nothing short of them will do, going forward.
