I got a giant step closer to the answer to why the central valley of California is laying fallow this year. The congress is protecting 4" minnow. You can view the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Twd59PrqCNg . It's pretty sickening. But at least it is curable. In the mean time they are pumping the water that would normally go into the irrigation system out into the ocean. Don't that just warm your heart? Western mass. man at http://massachusettspreppersnetwork.blogspot.com/ dug this video out of his files and sent it too me, so that we might know some more of the truth. Just what bloggers are good for! I hope they just go turn some valves and switches and channel the water back into the irrigation system. It will do good there. Western water wars are so ridiculous.I will be putting up a short blog today. I will try to do better tomorrow.
