McClintock on water related issues:

Tom McClintock and House Republicans Welcome Executive Action on Western Water

October 19, 2018 

Press Release

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) and Representatives Devin Nunes (CA-22), David G. Valadao (CA-21), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Ken Calvert (CA-42), Tom McClintock (CA-4), and Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) released the following statement today on President Trump’s executive memorandum on western water:
“The President’s announcement is an immense relief for the farmers and families of the San Joaquin Valley and communities across California. 

Due to the actions of environmental extremists and overzealous bureaucrats, California has been suffering from a years-long water crisis that has wreaked havoc in Central Valley farming communities that feed tens of millions of Americans. Productive land has gone fallow and farmworkers have lost their jobs.  Communities across California have also been devastated as senseless government regulations have mandated that billions of gallons of water be flushed out to the ocean and wasted. 

Now, with this executive action, there is a strict timetable for rewriting the biological opinions that lie at the root of the water crisis.  This executive action also prioritizes building critical projects to expand water storage in our state so that we can store more water during wet years for use in dry years.

We commend President Trump for taking decisive action today that will build on the success of the WIIN Act, cut through bureaucratic roadblocks, address Sacramento’s radical water grab, and increase the water supply to farms and communities across the state. California families can now rest assured that help is on the way.”

Humorous "generic Dem ad".


A decent update on our Alaskan Governor's Race: Elections division to absentee voters: No do-overs. Plus, new endorsements in Alaska governor’s race.

1) Votes already cast

Any Alaskans who sent in their voted absentee ballots before Walker suspended his re-election campaign on Friday do not get to vote again, the elections division said.

Walker and former Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott both dropped their bids for re-election last week, too late to have their names removed from this year's general election ballots.

As of Friday, the Alaska Division of Elections had sent out 23,773 absentee ballots, and Alaskans had voted and returned 3,076 of them.

2) AFL-CIO shifts endorsement.

The group, which is the largest labor organization in the state, had previously endorsed Walker. In a news conference Monday, Alaska AFL-CIO president Vince Beltrami said the choice between Begich and Dunleavy "was not a difficult decision."

3) Alaska's congressional delegation is supporting Dunleavy.

U.S. Rep. Don Young and Sen. Dan Sullivan, both Republicans, endorsed Dunleavy on Monday, the Dunleavy campaign said in an emailed statement. Young is up for re-election this year, facing challenger Alyse Galvin, an independent.

Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski will also be endorsing Dunleavy, said Michael Pawlowski. He's Murkowski's chief of staff but spoke about the endorsement Monday evening in his role as a spokesman for her campaign. Pawlowski said Murkowski was working with the Dunleavy campaign to put out her own statement of support.

I don't trust Lisa as far as I can throw her.

Tom R's clip of The Bath House Rat in Nevada---

does he intend to reveal how ignorant he is about "stuff" like tax cuts and how those actually work to increase tax revenue?

i know. it's counterintuitive. but had he attended one serious college class relating to the economics of the world, or a government/public admin class, or a damn agribusiness economics class--- he wouldn't be such a fumb duck.

he's a national embarassment. how did he ever carry on a conversation with another head of state or communicate with his council of economic advisors or SECTREAS?

good gugamogaz. and hillary is worse!

Kev, football players and dancers, people crippled with spinal problems and arthritis, come to gyrotonics for relief and improvement .Find a good, qualified instructor and you will develop an incredible range of motion for whatever condition you come in with. I take pilates one hour a week to build up strength and my core and gyrtotonics 2 hours a week and I have had no further problems from my spinal stenosis. I swear by it.

Key differences between Donald Trump and Adolph Hitler--Hitler served honorably in the military, Trump didn't; Hitler was faithful to his wife, Trump cheated on all his wives; Hitler wrote a book, Trump's were all ghostwritten.


Here's a guy who was in the Reagan and Bush administrations, and is described as a historian, but doesn't seem to know a lot of history, as the responses to his tweet point out.

Extraneous said something about red and green. Now I can't remember the context, but it triggered a memory. Quotrons used to come with pre-set colors on the stock screen - green, for a stock traded upward in price - red, for a stock trading down, black for the background color.

It's intuitive if you're used to traffic lights. Green means go, a good thing. Red means stop, a bad thing. More or less.

Funny thing though is that for some people that doesn't work.

Red-Green color blindness comes to mind first. They both look the same, but are both legible. So you can change the screen colors to make a difference that the user can see.

I found a second kind of problem though, some people looking at the red and green screen saw one set of colors as clear and the other as muddy. I had never come across this result before. I asked the man to wait a little while I trained someone else and I'd get back to him. I did so and then my mind drifted off to my prior photography training. I wondered if it was because the two colors are on opposite sides of the rainbow with vastly different (relatively) wavelengths.

I went back to the other user and changed red to yellow. Yellow and green being closer to each other on the rainbow.
"Hey, that's great, the yellow isn't muddy looking."

We, the Quotron trainers, did a little research and found this not so unusual. Some people can't focus properly on some color combinations because the eye is, in effect, bouncing it's focus back and forth on the differences in wavelength.

Stranger still, some users were unusually sensitive to the blinking different colors. It distracted them. The solution was to make the stock prices all white with a black background. The blinking plus or minus sign at the end of the quote was enough info for them to tell whether a stock was up or down.

Any further qquestions:

Narciso, I almost hate to say this, but you make more sense as Bernardo. Never knew you were a Jersey native.

I was also wondering why I hadn't seen Narciso posting lately.

I like your posts whatever nom de plume you want to use.

And, yes, the troll has been too active lately. Does he really think he can deflate our optimism with his silly screeds?

I wouldn't mind a reasoned post from him to show us if we're wrong, but he's unhinged, he's incapable of presenting a logical argument.

Like most people I can be swayed by a well constructed logical argument. He just buzzes around like an annoying gnat. The buzz or whine is annoying. The arguments are copy and paste. Unoriginal and devoid of logic.

I recognize him in one sentence and just killfile him. I dislike characterizing posters, but he's low IQ.

Bernardi Dr la paz

He's supposedly a fmr journalist of some sort, yet he just ladles this carp. No I mean saint kemal of the beltway. I think a plan as stupidly executed as this one appears to be does no good for anyone

I'm getting very tired of the Erdogan drip, drip, drip story line.

It's an odd coincidence that this happened right after Rev. Brunson was released.

I don't know what the Saudi's intentions were, or if Turkey interfered with them.

What I really question in this whole thing is the Washington Post coverage. And why they hired him in the first place, and why he had a green card.

Was Kashoggi killed by the Saudi's? I don't know and I don't care.

I have more trust in SA than Turkey.

Former Journalist? By that right I can call myself a Former Photojournalist. Fancy name for a photographer who works for a news outlet.

I haven't used my Nikons for about two decades. I would be "rusty" if I took it up again, but with practice I could get back to my old levels of performance.

Vision is something you don't lose, assuming no loss of eyesight. Thinking is something that does deteriorate over the years in many people.

Thank G-d that my thinking is still adaptive. 64 years of thinking and I retain a lot of my early learning, incorporated it into my current thinking, and my thinking still expands. I've solved past dilemmas and encountered new ones.

Our troll can't do that. His reasoning process is gone, no new information is processed. I feel sorry for him, but he is just a nuisance.

Were I a nuisance I would just cease and desist because I am sane and still recognize consequences. Ergo, the troll is not sane, and is useless in any further argument.

And, frankly, it boggles the mind that anyone would expend that much effort only to be lost to killfile.

Personally, I would be mortified if people made fun of me. I wouldn't keep posting. Ergo, he's mentally ill.
