    I can't just be about the fish, partially because California does not have enough water for it to be just about the fish. There are all sorts of regulations over the amounts and quantities you can use.

    I'd still like to see how this is the Obama/Senate democrat's fault when the court issued the order.
    Who voted unanimously against the legislation to turn the water back on? This isn't ****ing m-theory here pal. It really is that simple.

    Well at this point what mention of the congressional hearings on this issue I have found, the guy in charge of the water supply in Ca. testified that the restriction only resulted in a 5% decrease in water to the valley.. will this magically fix the drought condition?

    I am fairly sure there were many other salient tidbits of info they had as well.

    I am also sure they did not vote to

    create.. food lines in this country...akin to what Stalin did to the Ukrainians and the Kulaks

    It doesn't matter. That the vegetation has to be maintained artificially is pretty indicative of its not being economically viable, whatever its capability for output.

    lol um since when did any farmlands rely on the rain to produce crops? It's called irrigation.

    What about the salmon fishermen who would also be suffering if for the basic destruction of a salmon run were to occur. An ecosystem isn't all about one tiny organism, but a basic food chain is evidence that the extinction of one organism can be catastrophic to another.

    Uh, you are joking right? Even irrigation relies on rain, since it draws from water supplies in regions where rain is heavy, often in the same geographic area (aka, fellow western states) who are also suffering from an arid climate. Moreover, irrigation is expensive and needs to be supplemented by mother nature, if it is to remain economically viable. Since the state will have to provide money for irrigation, probably from taxes and subsidies from the national government, there is more than legitimate cause for the Senate to deny any motion to maintain irrigation.

    But if the water has to be shipped in and rationed to begin with, its not economically viable. It's different in a climate zone with a vast amount of fresh water to be used in case of drought, but when much of California's water has to be used, thus putting shortages on other citizens, it becomes economically unsound. I believe this is his point. Irrigation does no good if there isn't a reliable water source.

    Ahhhh... I got it.

    Who's responsible is not important, because you have now deemed that the growing of fruits and vegetables in that valley, isn't "economically viable".

    Controversy solved!

    Thanks to your quick thinking, the democrats are now in the clear... So move along people... move along... there's nothing to see here.

    I might be missing something. Can you elaborate on your idea?
