    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.
    Yeah, kind of reminds you of the argument against increased drilling for energy independence doesn't it?

    You're trying to joke around with someone who has no sense of humor.
    Good luck with that.
    You'll probably be labeled a progressive because you think dairy cows can be happy and therefore, you don't want them slaughtered.....yet you believe in slaughtering babies.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I don't care...... Anyone who believes they know if a cow is happy or not is delusional.

    I think a cow would be happy anywhere there is food to eat, and a bit of liberty.

    If Cows are so damn happy in California than why is Wisconsin the Cheese capitol of the US?

    It appears radioman was right.

    but, a joke isn't funny if it has to be explained. Maybe those commercials didn't play out of state.

    Oh, sure, building 20,000 square miles of greenhouses is like drilling for energy independence. Both of them are pipe dreams.

    Drilling is not a pipe dream. Unless, your world is just upside down.
