    CBS: Utah representative wants to shut off water to NSA facility



    More information: Utah legislator to propose halting water to NSA data center | The Salt Lake Tribune

    I'm completely on board with this effort, which is also being pursued in Maryland and Tennessee.

    More nonsense from the 50 Chiefs and One Indian.
    Next the NSA will blockade all roads in and out of Utah.
    And then destroy every reservoir in Utah.
    But wait, Western states are begging Obama for help since Congress is too impotent to act .

    Not much the prez can do.
    He can't make it rain.
    If it did rain, our greedy farmers would still say they don't have enough water.
    Calif. agribiz won't be happy until the water from every creek, stream and river is diverted to the San Joaquin Valley.
    In the meantime, our "fiercely independent, fiscally conservative" farmers will lineup for federal relief dollars.
    I don't hear them whining about cutting off disaster relief nowadays.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    The president can give your state 100 million as he did today, since Congress won't/can't act on anything.
    People keep forgetting the reason for this decade's executive orders, the House is done for the year--and brags about it .

    Hmmph.....well, maybe our underworked reps can donate some of their salary to disaster relief.

    You mean Christie's Democratic MOB supporters.
    Not to mention their insurance perks.
    time for citizens at the bottom to replace these assholes with amendments.

    No forgiveness necessary.
    We're just talking here.
    So sorry about your loss.
    It hadn't really occurred to me until now, there is a teacher-student bond not found in any other endeavor.
    Almost like a parent-child relationship.
    Again, my condolences.

    Re: CBS: Utah representative wants to shut off water to NSA facility

    All this bull**** talk on NSA as related to cutting off water doesn't even take into account how precious water is out west.
    Unless a person lives out west as you do, and as I have when Dad was stationed at Travis,
    or my 41 years coming west for several weeks at a time, they have no idea WTF they're talking about with cutting off water.

    We have to do something with this new junk on the streets, just like the stuff that killed the actor.
    He was a good kid, with a a baby boy, lost his job due to a mess-up in a schedule, got depressed, relapsed,
    and went so young, like too many others AFTER high school.

    Since we have a local chapter for Heroin abuse with kids, we need to branch out our AA's to the young to at least talk drugs.
    There was a time when AA would throw you out if you tried to talk about drugs but they would give you
    free generic cigarettes and plenty of coffee.

    Anyway, I'm torn since we began our second round of wrestling tonite, called sectionals, and it finishes tomorrow and it's awesome.
    Wrestling attracts a tougher group of kids as it is and I was really working our kids tonite, as well as one new one,
    and getting after them to get more friends and cousins involved.
    You and I both know the positive lifelong benefits from being in a sport as demanding as wrestling, with your band of brothers.

    The wake and funeral are at the same times as the wrestling tomorrow and my wife and I will be going to the wake .

    I don't have any answers, Linc.
    I know we can only guide our little ones in the right direction.
    We do the best we can.
    Hug your loved ones and keep them close.
