The president said the California wildfires were caused by California’s poor forestry practices and permitting medical marijuana to be grown on federal forest land. California said it was Washington’s failure to provide proper forest service funding.  In the mean time, Montana was living with smoky sunsets and sunrises because of the California wild fires.   Iowa and Rhode Island claimed they had no dog in this fight . . .

Drought/Flood Conundrum

David, thinking outside the box, tried to figure out how to ship Texas’ excess flood water to California.  Gov. Brown was receptive, but his constituency wanted to know if it was vegan; had it crossed borders legally; would it need Government help once it arrived, and did it qualify for ObamaCare?  The nuts & bolts part–how to physically get it there–seemed to be lost somehow.  The Libs worried a water pipeline might be used to move Texas oil to California.  And who would they name it after–George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Cher, Lady Gaga? Gov. Brown was open, but the Californians were firm–NO BUSH . . .!
