Does anything more need be said…???

image..In the aftermath of our Presidential election of 8 Nov. 2016, an ever increasing number of Americans are opening to ponder, are “WE” being lead even deeper down that proverbial rabbit hole, so skillfully constructed, essentially by GOP leadership with increasingly frequent “atta-boy” from ever compliant Democrats…

…The shape – color – size – depth and more importantly the audacity, this rabbit hole conveys, appears in part to be a function of what part of America in which one lives…

…Likely, except for the …1% … Americans regardless of where “WE”  live, today, feel on an energetic level that all is …  NOT … A-OK with and for all Americans…

…The legacy cultural history of the area in America in which we live … as well as the form,  quality and openness of education we receive combine to contribute to establishing and insulating the feelings “WE” express when circumstances do not unfold as “WE” conjure they should…

…Being given explicit and implicit permission to explore … them (others) … who are they, how do they live, where do they live, what do they believe, and why – – – allows everyone opportunity to be as connected as they individually choose…

…Implicit in this “permission” is the caveat that this “permission” is freely given, without duress, without veiled threat of repercussion if one chooses a position not championed by those currently in control…

… Whether “WE” choose to admit, is immaterial, but for the last 50 plus years America has only allowed the American history we teach to be little more than “lily-white-wash” pabulum replete with deliberate vitriolic descriptions and accounts, especially, of those color…

… Removed from current discourse are implications from … Watergate … Viet Nam … JFK assassination…. Kent State killings …  MLK assassination … the compliant “free” press buying & selling “W” Bush’s lead up to his war on Iraq … and the false-flag issues surrounding Sept 11, 2001 … How “the-body-politic” in America is now corporate funded and controlled…???

…The America “WE” live in today is messy … difficult … diverse … challenging … and not likely to return to those idyllic dreamy TV days of  Father-Knows-Best – – – Happy Days – – My 3 Sons – – Brady Bunch

…”WE” allowed and still allow TV sit-coms to blind-side us … without a counter force saying … Hold On A Minute … what about this and this and this..???

IF one dares challenge what are “approved” talking points … ala … Ed Snowden …  Julian Assange  (WikiLeaks)  … Chelsea Manning … those supporting ANONYMOUS (and other associative like-minded internet techie’s) quickly learn life as they know it … is over…   And for the most part “WE” (the overwhelming majority of Americans) meekly obey, say nothing and do nothing … lest they (our government & it’s duly sanctioned agents) come after us…too…

…Right here …  … and for a moment thoughtfully contemplate & reflect on the above paragraph…???

…In the America in which you live do you have freedom of speech … right to assembly … and everything else stated and/or implied in our Bill of Rights...???

…I suspect … thanks to “W” Bush and his Patriot Act you are now confined to “free-speech-zones” … curfews on public demonstrations …increased warrantless surveillance of your actions, phone, computer, cell phone without your knowledge or permission…

…Now try this on for size…???   …Our government without our permission obtains a plethora of information about us, as does corporate businesses and then they freely sell trade, barter our data … but … if “WE” collect data utilizing similar nefarious, means and methods about government and/or business and sell, trade or barter this “stuff” … for us it’s hello crow-bar motel… …  Why is their data untouchable, sacred, Holy Grail and ours is fair game for everyone..???

…Where is the bottom of this rabbit-hole and can “WE” afford that fall…???

…How, when, where, why did the psyche of America become so infected that “WE” choose authentically unwilling and/or unable to extend basic, elemental, sustaining life to every human being on planet Earth irrespective of ethnicity, color, religion, language, economic status…

It bears repeating for as John Kennedy so aptly noted … our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet … We all breathe the same air … We all cherish our children’s future … And we are all mortal

… Does anything more need be said…???

Arizona Water Officials Remind Community Gardeners About Groundwater Law

 

By  Mark BrodieThe Arizona Department of Water Resources recently issued a reminder of sorts to farmers and community gardeners in the Valley — that they could be in violation of the Groundwater Management Act of 1980.

That law is often credited with helping the state prepare for, and deal with, its current drought. Under the Act, new irrigated farms in certain parts of the state cannot be bigger than 2 acres. Tom Buschatzke, director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources, answers what prompted his agency to put this out.
 
To get a sense of what kind of impact this guidance might have on Valley farmers and gardeners, we spoke to Greg Peterson and headed out to his Urban Farm in north Central Phoenix.

Peterson’s front yard is lined with fruit trees; he says there are more than 80 of them on the property. Standing just a few steps from a bed where he’s growing kale, chard and other veggies, he explains what he makes of the note from the state Water Resources Department.

Negotiations Over Arizona Drought Plan Ongoing

 

By  Will StoneArizona farmers, cities and tribes continue to work on a deal to avert major cutbacks in water deliveries from Lake Mead in the coming years.

State water managers are quietly making their pitch to those stakeholders who rely on the Colorado River to voluntarily give up some water now to avoid potentially losing even more later.

There’s about a 50 percent chance Southwest states will face a shortage declaration in 2018. The proposed "drought contingency plan" would result in almost 200,000 acre feet being left in Mead when the water level is between 1090 feet and 1075 feet.

Director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources Tom Buschatzke said they are hoping to come up with even more than that.

“It’s imperative that we take actions to protect lake levels and we will take the time we need to do it right to build a consensus,” Buschatzke said.

Buschatzke can’t give details about the negotiations, but hopes to get legislative approval next year. Among those with a lot at stake are farmers in Pinal County.

“More needs to be done to reduce the probability of that initial shortage," said attorney Paul Orme, who represents four irrigation districts, which are low priority, meaning even an initial shortage would drain their entire share.

Orme said this proposed plan is ultimately an insurance policy to prevent the most severe cutbacks, which would affect cities.

“We are long out of the picture, by the time Lake Mead gets down to that level. So we don’t want to be the sacrificial lamb," Orme said.

That means his clients want all the users, even those with seniority, to chip in now. So far he’s encouraged by the talks.

Ultimately, Arizona will have to reach an agreement with its neighbors Nevada and California, as well.
