"I can explain it to you but, I can't understand it for you"
I took his comment as just a joke.
DRZ-400 - are you being serious?
I've been to the Hoover Dam, it aint got nuthin to do with California. It sits on the stateline of Nevada/Arizona.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Do you know who has the largest amount of water shares for the hoover dam? I can tell you it is not Arizona or Nevada.
I'm just kidding though, california cannot take more water than it owns, and arizona cannot take californias power.

LA can get it's power elsewhere.
And pay more money for it.
Remember, Los Angeles is a city that decided to safe a few buck by forcing the homeowner to repair the sidewalks. It's just going to love paying double for megawatt-hours.
And Arizona shouldn't just threaten, it should follow through. The sooner the corrupt governments of California are shut down, the sooner they'll be replaced with Americans.
