How mad are California residents at this water situation?
« on: June 16, 2015, 07:11:57 PM »
Many of us don't live in California, so we find this whole water thing just absolutely crazy -- especially those of us who live in red states.  The concept of getting your water rationed is just insane for a society in 2015.

My question to those who live in the area, how pissed off is everyone?  Are libs just fine with it?  Are libs getting pissed?  Is this putting pressure on politicians, and those politicians backed by the environmentalists?  We'd be going crazy out where I live in the south-east.

Yuhas, who hosts a conservative talk-radio show, abhors the culture of “drought-shaming” that has developed here since the drought began four years ago, especially the aerial shots of lavish lawns targeted for derision on the local TV news.

“I’m a conservative, so this is strange, but I defend Barbra Streisand’s right to have a green lawn,” said Yuhas, who splits his time between Rancho Santa Fe and Los Angeles. “When we bought, we didn’t plan on getting a place that looks like we’re living in an African savanna.”
