Water Politics: Pelosi’s home city exempted from water restrictions imposed on rural farmers

The Endangered Species Act has wreaked havoc for decades on rural communities, but a newly filed lawsuit could force San Francisco urbanites like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to share their pain. A federal complaint filed this week contends that the Hetch Hetchy Project, which supplies water to San Francisco and the Bay Area, has unfairly enjoyed an exemption from the “severe cutbacks” required in rural California in order to save endangered fish species.

    The water situation and battle over water use in California has been going on since the state saw quick development during the 20th century post World War I, and truly come to a head with the Central Valley drought and utter nonsense with and over the Delta Smelt when the community activist came to office…a issue in fact that the Wall Street Journal pointed out back in 2009 the far-left lunacy of purposely diverting tens of billions of gallons of mountain fresh water from the fertile farmlands of what was America’s biggest fruit, nut and vegetable growing area in our country to the ocean.

    Even with the article pointing out the liberal politics of the San Fran Bay area and the mentally challenged congress person from that area, it is just another sign from a state that has allowed democratic party politics to destroy the financial stability and integrity of California,and causing hardship and havoc to the people in the Central Valley region and around the country with less agriculture production.

    Stop the madness people…democrat and liberal politics is a zero sum game as we see from the article. Think about that when you go to your local food market and see the price of soft fruits, various nuts and vegetables at this time of the year.

    Democrats….liberals…government control of and over peoples lives. Makes you wonder why Moon Beam is still hot all over for the train to nowhere. How about the more appropriate use of taxpayer money on improving the fresh water situation in your state?
