Yep. And me with my 110 gallons of emergency drinking water...at least it's something. Will be interesting to see how things play out. Without the runoff from the Sierras, it's not looking good.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Nestle is laughing all the way to the bank...

My older sis is a wife of a marine x pilot as I blame him and her with the problems we have today. It's all about a pay check. She never heard about the NWO and what the CIA really stands for. CORPORATE INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. She has her second cancer after being free for a couple years. I told her she wouldn't be in condition for me to visit. First of June as her hair is falling out again with her chemo.

She wanted to change of chemo but her doctor said no.

I understand where you're coming from, Doc. There are many different levels of knowledge and people involved in the nefarious operations taking place. Compartmentalization keeps alot of folks in the dark. They may be receiving good pay for their work and yet not be aware of their small part in the big picture. On the other hand, there are those who know exactly what they're doing and don't give a shit.

Sorry about your sis. My father, a WWII vet and all around awesome human being, passed a couple of years ago from cancer at the age of 88. The chemo was making him so sick he chose to stop and go out naturally. That's a tough thing.

April 2, 2015 By Kevin McCarthy 5 Comments

The current drought in California is devastating. The order from the governor should not only alarm Californians, but the entire nation should take notice that the most productive agriculture state in the country has entered uncharted territory. We have experienced extreme drought conditions in years past but thanks to the most sophisticated water system in the country that captured and stored water during the wet years for use during the dry years, our communities and farmers survived.‎ Unfortunately, state officials have turned their back on this proven infrastructure system.

The order is the culmination of failed federal and state policies that have exacerbated the current drought into a man-made water crisis. Sacramento and Washington have chosen to put the well-being of fish above the well-being of people by refusing to capture millions of acre-feet of water during wet years for use during dry years.

These policies imposed on us now, and during wet seasons of the past, are leaving our families, businesses, communities, and state high and dry. These rules and regulations must be changed.

My House colleagues and I have acted aggressively to enact legislation that would have helped protect us from the current situation. In 2011, and again in early 2014, the House passed comprehensive water legislation to increase the amount of water we could capture and store. Unfortunately, the Obama and Brown Administrations and Senators Boxer and Feinstein opposed these proposals. As the drought continued to worsen, the House passed emergency drought legislation in December of 2014 to allow us to capture storm and rainwater from early season storms. That too was blocked by the Senate.

I’m from the Central Valley and we know that we cannot conserve or ration our way out of this drought. It is time for action, and House Republicans are developing another legislative proposal to help put California water policy back on the path to commonsense. Given the announcement, this time I hope Governor Brown, Senator Boxer, and Senator Feinstein will join my colleagues and me in this effort.

California delta's water mysteriously missing amid drought.

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — As California struggles with a devastating drought, huge amounts of water are mysteriously vanishing from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta — and the prime suspects are farmers whose families have tilled fertile soil there for generations.

A state investigation was launched following complaints from two large agencies that supply water to arid farmland in the Central Valley and to millions of residents as far south as San Diego.

I have mixed feeling about this. On one hand, yes these farmers, many of whom are immigrants who make very little money, have a right to local water to irrigate their crops. On the other hand, these agricultural farms have been existing in areas that have been razed and built and irrigated for the purpose of profit, more than for the concept of sustainable living for those in the area. The entire central valley is currently nothing but but dried up farmland, when it could be used for so many other purposes that would benefit the locals.

One thing is certain: There will be a water crisis here in the Golden State, and it will come with a price.

Saw this today, pretty cool... cheers

Last month, California newspaper The Desert Sun published an investigation revealing that Nestlé Water’s permit to transport water across the San Bernardino National Forest for bottling has been expired since 1988. On Friday, the California Forest Service announced it would make it “a priority” to reassess the permit, and that it might impose as-of-yet unspecified “interim conditions” on the bottling operation in light of the severe drought, The Desert Sun reports.

The fact that Nestlé has continued its massive water-bottling operation while the state struggles with crippling water shortages has become a sticking point for activists. A petition demanding Nestlé immediately stop bottling and profiting off California water has drawn 27,000 online signatures and counting, and last month activists reportedly blocked the entrances to Nestlé’s bottling plant in Sacramento.

Another investigation published last year by The Desert Sun found that after 2009, Nestlé Waters stopped submitting annual reports to local water districts about how much groundwater the company extracted for bottling. Since then, the local San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency has listed “a rounded estimate” in its own reports of 750 acre-feet, or 244 million gallons of water, extracted by Nestlé per year, according to the Sun. Reuters reports the company drew 50 million gallons from the Sacramento area alone last year.

Today I learned......

Post by Aces on Fri 22 May 2015, 5:35 pm

Keep 'em separated....

Dexter Holland, the lead singer of the punk-rock band
The Offspring, has a lot of different interests. One of them is biology.

Before he became famous as the lead singer for the punk-rock band The Offspring in the mid-1990s, Dexter Holland was just another graduate student toiling away in a laboratory at the University of Southern California. One day, he pulled two five-liter Erlenmeyer flasks full of steaming hot LB broth out of the autoclave and put them in the safety hood to cool down. But the cooling process was taking forever. “They were right next to each other,” remembers Holland. “I thought, ‘These things are never going to cool off. I’ve got to keep ’em separated.’”

The phrase struck Holland. “I thought that was a funny line,” he recalls of what would become the signature hook for the band’s breakthrough hit, “Come Out and Play.” “It was literally a biology inspiration.”

I love that quote...it resonates with truth. The problem with the Science vs. Religion scenario it that people on both sides are immersed in their respective dogmas. When one is willing to extricate oneself from the business of belief, and view existence from a macroscopic rather than microscopic stance, that is when minds open, dialog begins, and the ability to reason is awakened.

Big picture...that's what it's all about.

Holy crap, there is no place left for serious discussion of alternative views and theories without having to wade through threads and threads full of shit and or fluff.

I was hoping for the best for a forum that was once my home, but it is hopeless...like a vegan walking into a Burger King asking for food, I am left with an empty bag, and a wax-lined cup of water with a plastic lid and straw for which I must pay the full price of a "drink" aka "soda with so much bad in it you will get hooked on it and always want more".

Reporting.......... giggle

Unfortunately all CT fora have gone "facebook" , nothing more than social sights . When you do find a place where discussion is at a premium , it has a small membership base and closes after a few months.

A certain forum that will remain nameless , used to have the most intelligent membership IMHO , is now sadly the most dumbed down . I actually find the stupid there quite painful and amusing.

So yeah , think I'll just hang out and post some tunes , and no longer engage the retards giggle

Mozart had a "startling fondness" for poop jokes, which is preserved in his surviving letters. giggle


Wiki

He enjoyed billiards and dancing, and kept pets: a canary, a starling, a dog, and a horse for recreational riding. He had a startling fondness for scatological humor, which is preserved in his surviving letters, notably those written to his cousin Maria Anna Thekla Mozart around 1777–1778, and in his correspondence with his sister and parents. Mozart also wrote scatological music, a series of canons that he sang with his friends.

Coast to coast was REALLY  good last night. Susan Lindauer had over two 1/2 hours talking the last 1/2 hour of three hours were smart phone callers. I fell asleep about the last half hour dam it was good! Bush didn't need to go to war! She didn't say who pushed it! I believe it was the CIA, CORPORATION INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. Over Detroit!

Date: Saturday - May 23, 2015
Host: Richard Syrett
Guests: Susan Lindauer

Richard Syrett was joined by former Congressional staffer Susan Lindauer, who served as a US intelligence asset and back door channel on anti-terrorism from 1993 to 2003. She discussed what happened when she tried to disclose the true facts of a 9/11 warning and Iraqi pre-war intelligence to Congress and the nightmare of her arrest via the Patriot Act. According to Lindauer, awareness of an impending attack on the United States was widespread amongst the intelligence community in the months leading up to 9/11. As such, she was tasked with telling her contacts in the Iraqi government that the United States wanted any information they had about a potential attack or else "we will firebomb them back into the Stone Age." When they tried to cooperate, she said, the US government balked at the offer because, ultimately, it hoped to use Iraqi noncompliance as justification for a future conflict.

Lindauer also revealed how the Iraqi government attempted to work with the United States prior to the war in 2003. She claimed that Iraq was desperate to end the sanctions imposed on the nation and, therefore, they not only offered to allow extensive weapons inspections but also preferential treatment to American health care and automotive companies once trade with the country had resumed. Additionally, Lindauer said, a senior Iraqi official suggested that Hussein would retire from power and free elections would be held to choose the nation's next leader. Despite all of these concessions, she contended, the United States pushed ahead with a war because it wanted companies associated with senior administration officials to profits from the conflict and it would also allow George W. Bush to satisfy his own personal vendetta against Iraq and Saddam Hussein.

When Lindauer attempted to reveal all of this information to Congress, she was arrested under the auspices of the Patriot Act using secret charges and evidence. Refusing to plead guilty and demanding a trial, she was subsequently ordered to surrender to prison for a psychiatric evaluation. Suspiciously, this occurred at the same time that Colin Powell was giving media interviews where he blamed intelligence failures for misinformation which led to the Iraqi War. "I was being ordered to go to prison," she marveled, "so that I could not contradict the nonsense story he was inventing." Ultimately, after five years of battling the federal government, the charges against Lindauer were dismissed mere months before the start of the Obama administration. "If they could do this me, given how capable I am of fighting and beating them back," she warned, "then imagine what they could do to you."

Ten days before Freddie died, Jim Beach, the band's manager, met with him to discuss what could be done with his legacy. Freddie quipped, "You can do whatever you like with my image, my music, remix it, re-release it, whatever "just never make me boring".
