We are out of water.
Last month's esquire had an article about how we ar not yet in this country doing violence over it.

Like when Future shock came out in American print and the disposable lighters in France had found their ways to American shelves already.

Sooner than you can publish a warning, shiat happens.

I'd warn you all about Trump, but. . .

maybe- and i'm just spitballing here- but maybe a place described as 'a stretch of sagebrush mesas and sandstone cliffs' is not the best place to attempt water intensive agriculture?

The woman on the other end was frantic, screaming as she watched from the window as a neighbor, age 86, beat her husband, 82, with a shovel. The fight was over water, the most valuable resource in much of the West.

Why is this surprising?  This sort of thing has been going on in the US since before it was the US.  Ever heard "Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting" popularly attributed to Mark Twain?

The water bill in Orange County, CA is typically $165. And that was in a town that actually had wells and only "sometimes" used LAW+P pipeline.
//There is a reason it is called Los Angeles Department of Water.... and Power.

/people are growing peanuts by Lubbock, and cotton, just what the hell ass?

You think it's bad now, wait till the aliens get here. It takes ALOT of water to wash a mothership.

Fark Colorado and their water Nazism.  If the rain falls on your land it should be your water to do with as you please.

I was on a ship once that had five 600 foot redwoods. All virgin timber, roots and all, hanging from the rear view mirror. It wasn't even that big of a ship compared to the ones carrying slaves.
Still couldn't mask the stench of the ythipleasdchazzi crew.
I got away though.
Can't seem to get this tracking color off.

Are you implying that watering parks with ditch water is akin to Holocaust camps, since the Pure Water claims the promised land of our digestive systems?

Cool, I was not aware that the State of Colorado had a Fark account. That saves me some time and effort:
