    **** Killafornia....

    They too stupid to build gigantic distillery plants? oh right they build 750million dollar schools in the middle of the ghetto.

    These retarded politicians from California cant even figure out how to extract salt out of water....

    I suppose that's what you get when you elect politicians who run on "Obamabucks"

    These elected officials might have some authoritarian ideas but at least I can turn salt water into fresh water by my damn self.

    I suppose that skill may make me an enemy of the Unites States...

    Or, we could not give in to blackmail like that and develop other parts of the nation to grow these things, and tell CA that they should wise up.

    Who cares what state of mind they have? It's a COW! Hell, as long as it grills up nice, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg....

    Ah, yes, let's grow oranges in greenhouses in Minnesota. There's an idea.

    Are you saying it can't be done? And why do you choose the extreme to highlight your argument? Are you saying that oranges for example can't be grown in Fl, La, Ga, Ms, or any of the south? Or how about any of the crops, are you saying that only Ca. can produce them? I don't think that is so.

    Obviously, it could be done. It could not be done economically.
    And, sure, oranges are grown in other parts of the USA as well. However, if you take out a major producer, the supply goes down, and the price goes up.
    If you really try to grow the produce that comes from California's central valley in greenhouses, you will need about 20,000 square miles of greenhouses. Could it be done? Probably so. Would it be economical? Sure, about as economical as the train to nowhere that Sacramento is determined to build, but on a much larger scale.
