Here is a great diary about who creates what from whom. I would like to expand on this diary, one which draws on the well of Deuteronomy.

I live a great part of my year on an island in a harbor. Fresh water is exceedingly precious, and we are "blessed" to have a great deal of it. Artesian wells, drilled deeply, and whether or not you care to believe in this or not, all of them dowsed by the same man with a divining rod.

Here we are on our little island, and increasingly, we have people with lots of means. They want lawns. They want large homes. They want water, because they want to water their lawns, on an island, in a salt-water harbor in Maine. They don't care if the wells go dry. They want their non-native grass and plants to look good. They don't care.

We very nearly had conservation land. We don't. "We need water for our lawns".

Many of these rich folks, they'll vote for Obama, and at the same time, destroy wetlands and freshwater on an island off the coast of Maine.

Who needs this kind of avarice? This kind of selfishness?

Mitt. He depends on it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
