SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 27 (Reuters) – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday declared a state emergency due to drought and said he would consider mandatory water rationing in the face of nearly $3 billion in economic losses from below-normal rainfall this year.

Interesting the RINO’s response … gooferment force.
Not that a democrat’s response would have been different.
Interesting how water if treated as a commodity could be different.
Interesting how gooferment in the “water” business manages to be unable to supply consumer demand. (Doesn’t happen at McDonalds!)
How about metering usage and having new more expensive water. Privatize “water”. Eliminate the gooferment in any role concerning water; no law, regulations, or interest.
Put people in control. And, we’d have water galore. Maybe someone might even invent a way to store water to even out the droughts. Or, even make it!?!
