Calif. Voters Can End Water Crisis

The New Indian Express reports what it calls the “cruel side of blind faith.” And no, the paper wasn’t reporting what happens to those who thought they could keep their doctor under Obamacare. The story in question concerns fallout from an effort to increase precipitation.

In Palamau, Jharkhand — located in the Northeast corner of India — a group of occultists that go by the name of Orka attacked and decapitated a villager so as to use his head in a rite to bring rain and a good harvest to an area parched by a heat wave that reached a temperature of 116 degrees Fahrenheit.

In California, drought-stricken Democrats that normally discount religion are looking at their least-popular neighbors and wondering if it worked.

Stuck in the third year of a severe drought brought on by feckless Democrat planning and harassed by Gov. Jerry Brown’s mandatory water restrictions and fines, many voters are wondering if it’s time to stop caring more about fish than people and vote Republican for a change.

The Washington Times is following Republican Tom Del Beccaro’s campaign for the open U.S. Senate seat. Del Beccaro has a routine where he asks voters if they want high-speed rail or more water. “Everybody says water,” explains the candidate. “I also ask people to raise their hand if they think we have a train crisis.”

With the exception of a few Lionel hobbyists, the answer is always no.

California Democrats haven’t built a dam since 1979 and residents are currently paying the price for blind faith. “The state has not done anything significant to increase water supply in three decades. At the same time, the state has grown substantially," Del Beccaro said.

"I don't specialize in math, but if there's not enough water today for the people who are here, and they expect 17 million more in the next 20 years, a rational person would say we have to do something about this,” he said.

Democrats allocate 48 percent of the state’s total water for environmental uses that include washing the Delta smelt. Unfortunately, according to The Wall Street Journal the smelt isn’t cooperating. Since 2008, 1.4 trillion gallons of water have been flushed into San Francisco Bay to encourage the tiny fish, yet a spring census in 2014 found only 36 specimens.

So other than taking really long baths, what are those fish doing?

Republicans in California are promising more water projects and fewer choo-choos if they are elected to office, which really gives California voters a choice: They can end the Republican decades-long drought by voting GOP or they can consider importing an Orka or two and try alternative meteorology.
