    Gee, you're not very fun. You should know by now that conservative poutrages are effectively ended when anyone looks at and presents the facts. You're supposed to let them poutrage for at least a couple of pages before you ruin their tantrums, it's more fun that way.

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

    "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.

    Obama wants a slush fund that is ~0.028% of the Federal Budget. How uninteresting.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    It's called climate change and hasn't been seen like this for centuries.
    You should know that with the severe drought out West.
    Obama will not drag his feet as the House does with this severe drought, etc.

    So as always with partisan hacks, the drought out West is the Democrat's fault.
    No need to look at the water used by Corporate Farms with GOP subsidies.

    And people like Jerry Brown still has the welcome mat out at the border.
    No compliment for Gov. Brown saving your state from the idiot Arnold you voted for?

    Which is why the West is SOL, with people like you doing this .

    I even cut my own lawn and clean my own toilets. And the National Council of La Raza calls me a racist for doing so.

    I actually use less water than liberals. I ripped out all of the mandatory nanny state green low flush toilets and replaced them with those old politically incorrect toilets where you only have to flush them once after taking a crap.

    You're right. Obama will find some way to issue an EO to fix things, won't he?

    I voted for Tom McClintock for Governor.

    Arnold did get the Mexican vote and the Hollywood Left vote.

    If the federal government and Congress would have kept to the progressives "Dillingham Commission Report to Congress" which Congress adopted where America's population was suppose to be capped at 150 million, the corporate farms wouldn't have to be producing so many nuts, fruits and rabbit food.

    Especially since the West is beyond desperate and the House refuses to take its Viagra pills so it can get something up.
    You and I would have both expected the same from either Bush.
    Btw, since you keep on about XOs, let me know when Obama catches Reagan--since Reagan is still over twice the number of Obama .

    Not according to your post # 18, in which you bragged about all the ways you waste water.
    Why are you now backing off of your rightie chest-thumping ?
