I rarely agree with Hannity--a majority of the time he is a grandstander and way off IMHO--but today he broadcast 3 miles from the school where I teach (he was in Huron, I teach in Lemoore). I am not sure if many of you are familiar with the farming situation in Central California. But, farmers have not received water they paid for in advance due to the efforts of a group from Northern California who have convinced Sacramento to shut off the water headed to the valley farms. We have hundreds of acres sitting fallow or with crops withering and dying (no crops, no yeild, no jobs--40% unemployment in Huron alone) because Sacramento decided a minnow sized fish was more important then water for the largest ag producing area in the country. Many in the area are engaging senators and congressmen from other states to intervene on the behalf of the Central Valley. If you could, do some research and if you think it is a worthy cause
I posted this last night (on your side btw, PSWifey). Instead of addressing the REAL issue of 40% unemployment because generational farms are suffering from LONG TERM impact of limited to NO water~ a certain CM'r said, "You may want to stop looking for facts on the "opinion" section of newspapers :)" ~I'm going to have to say that PSWifey, some people don't get it. I agree with you. I support your cause. Just as I support the loggers cause in Oregon."some don't" understand jobs that leave and business that are destroyed. "Some" have an attitude of screw US farmers, etc. They don't care if we import from another nation. It's sad. There are too many urban elitists and Career politicians dictating the direction of this nation.

I want everyone to see this ugly fish too!
This is getting out of hand. I think it should be halted and a better solution drawn. I know it must be a scary thought ( to scientist, and crazy environmentalists) of a species going extinct, but maybe it is meant too. How can they be 100% sure stopping the water is going to save it?
