To all my smart friends who saw it coming and fled this state….congratulations!
You must be breathing a sigh of relief about now, knowing you made an incredibly wise move as CA raised taxes, increased regulations, caused the debt to rise and put our economy at high risk. And dare I say it? In the process of all this carnage our Constitution has been virtually tossed into the Pacific?
Check this out my friends, and I hope you are sitting down when you do:
Gov. Brown has just signed the most draconian water bill in history. It will have the authorities invading our homes to check our water consumption and we will be facing heavy fines if we fail to obey the new water regulations.
You will soon be limited to 55 gallons of water per day for indoor use, that’s barely 5 gallons above the minimum recommended use for health and safety. Imagine, having to choose between doing a load of laundry or taking a shower?
Brown said yesterday, “In preparation for the next drought and our changing environment, we must use our precious resources wisely,” Brown said in a statement. “We have efficiency goals for energy and cars – and now we have them for water.” But, Northern California has an abundant supply of water, what’s the problem? Well, it’s all about satisfying the growing thirst of an arid and overpopulated Southern California and there’s not a darn thing we can do about it. SoCal can take all the water they want – they have the power.
Brown signed SB 606 by Sen. Robert Hertzberg and AB 1668 by Assemblywoman Laura Friedman that require cities, water districts and large agricultural water districts to set strict annual water budgets, potentially facing fines of $1,000 per day if they don’t meet them, and $10,000 a day when there is a drought emergency.
We are under attack by completely unrestrained liberal lawmakers in Sacramento. We are defenseless to do anything about it. Our vote has been minimized. It no longer has any clout neither does our conservative representation. There is no checks and balances in the capitol. We are at the mercy of whatever they throw at us. Adios sweet California, it’s over.
