I have a solution

In the middle of the southern California desert there is a lake. I have seen it. If you take a little time, you can find it on the Google maps. It is a short distance from Indio. It used to be a big tourist place. People used to go there and swim and ski.

Not so much anymore. You see it has two problems. First it is getting smaller. Second, as suggested by its name, it is full of salt water. As the water evaporates, the the Salton Sea becomes more salty. Currently, the water is about 30% saltier than the ocean, which makes it quite toxic.

Currently, they tell me the ocean level is rising. I wrote a post on this, I guess about a year ago. I’m not going back through that, but very little of it has to do with global warming. Mostly, the Salton Sea is below sea level. Water could be filtered and then permitted from the ocean into the lake. In order to increase the level of the lake back to the desired level, it would take millions, perhaps billions of gallons of water.

There. You see, it would be a win, win, win for all. The recreation area would be restored. The water would be less salty and the ocean would would go down a little. Who knows? Maybe we could actually increase the level a little above the original level. Moreover, maybe there are other places we could find to store all that access ocean water. Maybe we could allow a little into the dead sea.

If we really got rambunctious, we might even dig a few holes specifically for the water. Can you imagine a lake in the middle of Saudi Arabia. It would permit swimming and boating in an otherwise arid area. And, of course, it would drastically increase the value of the land. They could build hotels, apartments and even homes along the shore.

Who knows, if we build enough of these lakes around, we might help the temperature go down. The vaporization from the lakes would help cool things down. It might even cause a little rain around the lakes. This in turn would decrease the so-called global warming.

Then, of course, we can’t do any of these things. The dems would not like it. They would lose one of they big clubs with which to destroy the republicans.

So, no matter how good the idea, forget it. It won’t happen. Not if the global warmest crowd has anything to say about it.

A Little Thought

I wished I could say I thought of it but I didn’t.  It was on CBS’s Seal Team.  Loosely quoted, it is corruption and indifference are powerful allies.  Although I certainly agree, I would add two words.  Corruption and indifference are powerful and dangerous allies.

Let’s all remember to vote.  If we don’t, we will most certainly face corruption and likely lose the precious right to vote.  Even the smallest vote is important, even for the proverbial dog catcher.  In some ways, the small contest is even more important.  The smaller the number of voters, the more that your vote counts.

However, even in the big elections, you vote counts.  Think of it.  according to Clinton, President Trump lost based on popular vote.  A few more votes for Trump and they would not have that argument.  Moreover, every vote sends a signal, a mandate.  Had president Trump won by ten million, we just might have our wall now and maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to pay 1000 dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.  Because he lacked the large margin, he lacked the political capital.  He even had to face republicans, of all things.

To be sure, there were three major reasons that President Trump won the election: taxes, the wall (as well as immigration), Iran and the globalists.  Under the heading of globalists, we can include, the Paris accord the TPP.  May I remind one and all, any time we enter a treaty, that treaty exceeds our constitution.  For that reason alone, all treaties should be entered with great care.  In these treaties, the US would be giving up a much of our sovereignty and we would gain nothing.  It would have been a big step toward one world government.  That might be good, but for one thing.  That government would likely be run by very corrupt people, as the UN is today.

Remember, a vote for a dem is a vote for globalism, more regulation and less freedom.  It is not just important to beat them at the ballot box, but we must send them a message that we don’t like a government that takes our money, gives it to the like of Iran and then tells us what to think.
