Palin decries water restrictions at Calif. college - Yahoo! News
This is why that simpleton should never be President. California's water restrictions were imposed after years of drought in the 2000s. The fact that water restrictions were placed on farmers was in part because taking up all the water would affect the state's struggling fishing industry(more specifically the industries that fish the already endangered salmon, steelhead and green sturgeon). In any case it would be a lose-lose situation for the federal government. Let farmers use as much water as they want and kill off a piece of California fishing industry. Or let the fishing industry die off and have thousands of fisherman out of work. The federal government chose to let both industries share the resource. In any case, Palin needed to talk about big bad evil government.Sarah Palin returned to Central California's agricultural region Sunday and lambasted the federal government for limiting the amount of water the state's farmers can get for their crops.
The former Alaska governor told more than 1,400 people at West Hills College in Lemoore that endangered species regulations protecting the Delta smelt and limiting pumping are "destroying" the lives of those in the Central Valley.
"A faceless government is taking away their lifeline, water, all because of a 3-inch fish," Palin said. "Where I come from, a 3-inch fish, we call that bait. There is no need to destroy people's lives over bait."
Palin also spoke about high gas prices, dependence on foreign oil, the need for domestic drilling and limiting currency inflation.
