    And you're surprised? Texas gets what it's merited, seeing as California's agricultural output is twice that of Texas's.

    Not surprised to see you shift the goal posts, though. First you say that red states won't get anything, now you've moved on to who gets the lion's share. I expect you'll be doing much of that throughout the thread.

    Oh come on it's not going to blue states. It's going to competitive senate seats!

    "President Obama will pitch a new $1 billion climate change resilience fund during a visit Friday to California.
    The fund, which would need to be approved by Congress, is intended to help communities dealing with negative weather that's the result of climate change.



    Obama is touting the fund during a trip to California, which has been devastated by a drought that is threatening the Central Valley's agriculture production and has led Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to call on Californians to conserve water.During a call with reporters on Thursday evening, the assistant to the president on science and technology, John Holdren, said, without any doubt, the severe drought plaguing California and a number of other states across the country is tied to climate change.

    I think one would have to be very gullible, at this point, to expect that if Obama gets what he is requesting, that the money will be used in any other way than to reward those who Obama perceives as supporting him and his policies, and largely withheld from those that Obama does not see as supporting him and his policies.

    If it is climate change causing the drought, I wonder if $1 billion will be enough. Sounds more like the proverbial drop on the hot dry stone.

    You know that's kind of nutty, right? It also doesn't square with past behavior, like offering to Federally fund high speed rails (turned down by their Republican governors) or offering 258 billion in medicaid expansion under the PPACA (turned down by their Republican governors). So before you eviscerate him for a thing he doesn't do, how about you wait for him to actually do it? Otherwise this is all just the realm of looneybin theory.

    How can a billion dollars change the activity on the Sun ?

    California has gone through numerous droughts over the centuries. The only difference this time around, there's too many people living in California because the federal government changed its immigration policies in 1965 and then decided not to enforce our immigration laws.

    And people like Jerry Brown still has the welcome mat out at the border.

    Well, I'm going to take a one hour long shower as soon as I finish washing my vehicles on my driveway.

    When it gets hot in the summer, it doesn't prove the global warming hoax, either.

    But, the hottest July in a century would be concrete evidence. Right?
