    Palin decries water restrictions at Calif. college

    Palin decries water restrictions at Calif. college - Yahoo! News

    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.
    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.

    If I remember correctly wasn't this a foreign fish? Why not just kill the thing and move on?

    The above posted thread covers the topic thoroughly. Killing off the fish would essentially kill off the first step in a pretty important food chain.

    So it wasn't foreign?

    I'm still not seeing why you would punish farmers for a food chain of fish and the fishing industry. It would seem to me that the fishing industry has problem of their own that farmers shouldn't care about.

    By that logic couldn't one just as easily state the inverse? How would stating "It seems to me that the farming industry has problems of their own (in this case water shortage) that fishermen shouldn't care about." be any different?

    Yeah she is still the same bimbo she use to be. And no where near Marilyn Monroe status.

    I've always wondered if we actually have any evidence that Marilyn Monroe was an idiot.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
