  •  we have been getting screwed for generations (4+ / 0-)

    conserving water so you guys could waste it, limiting our development to what we could reasonably sustain while socal just built more and more and more to play real estate games, stealing water from everywhere else it could.

    it was a terrible idea to put the population so far away from water in the first place. the only way that process will stop is if the state is split before the water is pumped out.

    it's not a matter of elite, it's a matter of power. socal has alienated the state through how it treats everything north of the grapevine as a colony.

    •  Not that I'm a seer (0+ / 0-)

      or anything. But I imagine if you split the state and kept all the water to yourself, we'd just have to invade you and really treat you like a colony. You are not going to deprive 25,000,000 people of life. Josef Stalin might have done that, but I don't see Jerry going there.

      Oh yeah, the San Joaquin Valley isn't in Northern Calif.

      Wish I could keep going with this but I have to go fill my swimming pool and spa.  

      •  Pretty sure SoCal doesn't have a military (0+ / 0-)

        I'm no seer but I'm pretty sure the US military would have no trouble handling it.

        •  I mean what could SoCal do? (0+ / 0-)

          Send the expendables? The Kardashians and Bruce Jenner? Good luck with that, also I'm pretty sure that sending the Kardashians would qualify as a war crime but at least the predator drone footage from the USAF would be entertaining.

          After the US military makes short work of the E! Channel brigade you guys can call it the "War of Northern aggression". Good luck with reconstruction.

          •  What military do you mean (0+ / 0-)

            So the military is going to stand by and watch millions of people dying or scattered to the four corners of the country to cause major disruption everywhere because a bunch of elitist Northern California snobs don't give a shit whether they live or die. Not to mention the destruction of major cities and ports that are critical to this nation. You people are living in fantsyland. It's  NOT YOUR WATER. It belongs to the nation. I imagine the Marines will be leading the charge to show you the error of your ways. Maybe you can change the name of your little empire into North Korea East. You are showing your true colors about how much you really care about people as opposed to your own selfish desires. Look in a mirror. Maybe you aren't as progressive as you think you are.  Unbelievable. I didn't expect to hear this kind of crap on this site. I'm done talking with you people.

      •  the san joaquin is not southern california (0+ / 0-)

        in any meaningful sense. it is the central valley, and the profligate water-wasting half at that. monterey is also not southern california, for that matter, and nor is big sur. southern california starts after the grapevine, according to pretty much every discussion of the state ever.
