California’s Water Crisis

Half Full or Half Empty?

I think that the California water crisis is sad, but I had this thought the other day: it is the Left’s own doing.  For now the mantra is that the water crisis is all the farmer’s fault because they are allowed to use as much water as they want.  (See here for a good analysis of this myth.)

The real problem is the left.  The environmentalists.  Using the same tactic of “protecting the environment” they don’t want to allow the building of new resevoirs to contain ground water runoff and use it for human and agricultural consumption.  This was widely reported with Gov. Brown made his historic declaration on water restrictions.  However, the blame has now shifted to the farmers. Continue reading “California’s Water Crisis”

the byline says it all…

Fascinating piece here from the Financial Times that presents a real challenge to Hillary Clinton’s aspiration to be the next President of the United States: her feeling of entitlement to the office.  She is going to have to work at it.

Finally!!

FOX News opinion article FINALLY makes the point about the hypocrisy regarding freedom of religion and freedom of expression. More of this needs to be done because I stand for liberty. While I disagree on many levels with the LGBT community–some of those due to theological positions–the fact remains that in America they are free to believe what they want and have the same rights of expression that I do did.

However as this experiment so greatly demonstrated is that the cakes were expressing his beliefs but were deemed offensive. Yet the same situation reversed is expression. More of this needs to be done. Theology has nothing to do with it. Expression is expression. If we cede the ground lost on this point what is the next avenue of victory for those who are anti-liberty? Church services in general? A cross necklace?
