This is what people voted for.
I didn’t.
These clowns are killing me, have cost me my carrer, caused me to loose my house, and the idiot press and media just gleefully supports everything they do.
Just can’t fix stupid I guess.

It has been going on for a long time. Consider that places like LA and Las Vegas only exist because at one time government was able to manipulate water rights in arid climates. You’d be amazed to find, even here in the east, what your deed does and doesn’t give you rights to. Often mineral rights and petroleum rights are ceded to the government and if you find anything you’re better off keeping it to yourself. It’s why petroleum companies can suck the natural gas and oil out from under your house and refill with water causing earthquakes and sinkholes. Government sold their rights to your property to the highest bidder.

In Hawaii that’s how most people get their water … is actually belongs to California, Oregon, and Washington … I think we should sue!

My first house in Illinois was new construction built in an old neighborhood where all of the houses had cisterns for collecting rainwater for watering the grass or washing the car. Only a couple of them had filtration/purification system for potable use.

I agree, this is wrong just as it is NOT against the law to tune your radio or TV to any station broadcast over the air, it is public, NOT private for any individual or entity!

Most of the rainwater collection laws were passed 50 – 100 years ago. What laws have been passed in recent years have generally been enacted to ease restrictions rather then strengthen them. AlaskaGuys headline link states “collecting rainwater now illegal in many states” when in fact the laws have been on the books for decades. There is some B.S. being thrown around but it ain’t ‘liberal’.

Next thing will be taxing electricity you get from solar cells or the wind.
Collecting rainwater is a real smart idea. I have often said that there should be two water systems in every house. One that goes through the city’s filtration and fluoridation system that you use for drinking and washing in sinks and another system that you use for toilets and washing cars and watering lawns. Why spend all the money purifying the water just to water the lawn or wash the car.What a waste. They should encourage saving rain water in cisterns for the second water source and relieve the burden on the city water system…..but they can’t tax it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What will they think of next?, probably taxes on the rain that falls.
Stupid government officials, no common sense at all.

@muleskinner SAID: ”...AlaskaGuys headline link states “collecting rainwater now illegal in many states” when in fact the laws have been on the books for decades. There is some B.S. being thrown around but it ain’t ‘liberal’….”

Boy ain’t THAT the truth!

Russ SAID: ”...Government sold their rights to your property to the highest bidder….”

And for all those Liberal accusers out there, get your facts straight… So how’s all that smaller gunnerment ‘free enterprise’ workin’ out for ya’ll? I know that my local Texas Water COOP sold the COOP out from under us and sold it to a privately run California company. Our water bill has NOW increased nearly 300% in as many years.

We have definitely been Republi-CONNED where I live!

Mike, here is another good idiotic story!

Our water company kept telling us to conserve water, so we did, and now the water company is asking for a price increase because the volume of water decreased! GO FIGURE!

Hans,
My question to these “private” water companies would be…

Why should we conserve on water usage for YOUR private profits?
  • All these companies will do is to charge US so THEY can expand services to more people with a finite amount of water! Stop expanding already!

Water is the New Oil.
Major Multi-National corporations are buying up water rights and forming backroom water contracts with small-town municipalities who sign off the needs of their own populace in exchange for the right to plunder aquifers and public reservoirs. In most cases, there is a clause in these contracts that hold a municipality liable for damages if these water sources do not keep up with the enormous draw of water by these corporations. This happens not only in North America, but in, for example, Africa, where nobody even hears about it.
I don’t perceive this as a partisan issue, however.

You are right Mike!

The water company in our area has the nickname of the Golden Spigot as they spend money like it’s water and keep asking for more. They have come under close scrutiny lately and are having to be a little more cautious about asking for rate increases or boondoggles at expensive resorts around the world.
