The Audacity of Hope left his own people again last week and went to Europe to show the world how arrogance can blind one from the realities of truth. While President Obama begged for the IOC to bring the Olympics to Chicago in a selfish plea to pump up his own ego, the people of Central California continued to suffer under the warlike policies of eco-tyranny. They banded together to help each other survive as the full effects of the water restrictions strangle the people into poverty.
Food shortages in the middle of the richest farmland in the world. It is very ironic. The ancestors of these multi-generational farms paid for the dams and irrigation systems that turned the desert into a bountiful land of green. Now all of their work and wealth is being flushed out to sea by politicians who have little or no concern for the human effect of their actions. Save the fish, bring back the salmon. Who are these arrogant environmentalists kidding? It is certainly not the families helping to give out rations to the people who grow the food for the world.
Something has gone seriously wrong. How could the President allow this to happen? How can he let it continue? He has the power to stop this oppression. He can order the water to be provided to the farmers. He can show that he values humans more than salmon and smelt.
Jeremy Freitas of Freitas Farms took me on a tour of some of the areas affected.
As the government shuts down the farms that added economic growth it creates unemployment, hunger, and poverty. This is a huge drag on GDP both in the state and nationally. California’s budget deficit is a direct result of these nonsense environmental policies that are crippling the economy and eliminating green jobs by the thousands.
The socialist economic and environmental policies of this administration and the progressive left wing extremists are a complete and dismal failure. Instead of free market productive agricultural businesses, the government has given us a dust bowl of monumental proportions. Some areas of Central California look like they have been wiped out by a nuclear bomb. However, that is not the case. It is just plain old stupidity by politicians obsessed with power that has caused this destruction. Politicians who think they can play god with absolute authority. They prevent their own citizens from accessing water sources that have been used for generations.
Fortunately, the good people of California know how to work to keep their community together in this struggle to survive. As their homes and livelihoods are destroyed from lack of water, they volunteer to give what they have to the least fortunate in the community. There is a great bond among the people. It is a bond that touches the heart.
Numerous unpaid volunteers are needed to accomplish the food distribution in and orderly manner. This is a massive organizational effort that takes dedication and hard work for hours under the strong sun of Central California.
This is not a natural disaster. This is one caused by a government gone astray. A government that caters to the egos of political narcissists and not to the needs of its people.
Come to the Central Valley Mr. President. Come and see the people who you have ignored. The economic damage is greater than Hurricane Katrina.
This was created by oppressive and arrogant leaders who want to lower the value of human life below fish. Shame on you President Obama. The fish are not more important than these people, and neither are you.
It is mind boggling to know that the President of the United States has been to Europe meeting with foreign leaders who are interested in taking away our jobs and eliminating us as a competitor on world markets, while overseeing policies that are shutting down our farms, bankrupting family farmers, creating 40% unemployment, and eliminating green jobs that are the backbone of California’s economy.
Why does this continue? There is no excuse for this nonsense by our political leaders. They cannot really think that they are kidding anyone with their false claims of protecting the environment. This is a well coordinated effort on the part of high paid attorneys, environmental organizations, phony science, and politicians to shut down our economy and deprive us of our freedoms. We will stand together first to save our citizens, then we will remove the corruption from the halls of Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, CA.
The President’s Party in Congress is at the leading edge of this war by the government and environmental extremists against the people of this country. Speaker Pelosi, Senator Feinstein, and Senator Boxer are trying to restore fish to areas of dry land at the expense of the people. The last time fish swam in these areas was before most of these people were even born.
Species have come and gone millions of times over the course of history. Is Congress going to try to resurrect the dinosaur? We all want to protect our environment, but that is not done by turning farmland into desert or breaking water contracts with the farmers.
The policies of the Pelosi Congress are dangerous to the people, the state, the country, and the world. They threaten our food and water supplies. They threaten our national security, our freedoms, and our way of life.
All Americans must stand up against these Draconian policies of the Democrats in Congress. California’s people need your help. We can remove them from office in 2010, but that will be too late to save many of our farmers and our jobs. The president can stop this today, but he has been negligent and arrogant in his ignorance of this oppression. It will be interesting to see how long it takes him to come to the Central Valley and apologize to the people of California.
Please America, we need your help; we want you to call the members of Congress who have diverted our water away from the people. Tell them that human beings are more important to the environment than non-existent fish in a non-existent river. Tell them that human beings are more important than an overabundant fish that clogs the irrigation pumps. Tell them that cutting off the water supplies to the people and the farms is wrong. We need the whole country to help stop this maddness.
But beware. They are now emptying the reservoirs of water in the middle of a 3 year drought. The people of California are in great danger as the water resources are being depleted by foolish bureaucrats who are obsessed with power.
Later this week: More on the farms and the San Joaquin Delta.
