Flooding America with Malice Aforethought

Heard on local radio.

All the flooding that we have seen over the past few months? Turns out environmentalist have been pushing an agenda to stop flood control.

The stable flow of water allowed for the construction of the concrete and earthen levees that protect more than 10 million people who reside and work within the river's reach.  It allowed millions of acres of floodplain to become useful for farming and development.
But after about thirty years of operation, as the environmentalist movement gained strength throughout the seventies and eighties, the Corps received a great deal of pressure to include some specific environmental concerns into their MWCM (Master Water Control Manual, the "bible" for the operation of the dam system). 
Things turned absurd from there.  An idea to restore the nation's rivers to a natural (pre-dam) state swept through the environmental movement and their allies.  
(A) wildlife biologist with the Corps of Engineers in Yankton, SD, told the Seattle Times that this event will leave the river in a "much more natural state than it has seen in decades," describing the epic flooding as a "prolonged headache for small towns and farmers along its path, but a boon for endangered species." 

Read the Whole Thing.


  1. that's funny .... they all missed the big picture

    How do you get global warming effects without real global warming?

    You change the baseline.... more flooding will equal "caused by global warming" ... how the baseline got changed will be completely ignored

  2. A headache. Thousand of acres of valuable food supply destroyed, tens of millions of dollars of damages, whole families have to rebuild from scratch, and it's a "Headache?"

    The worst thing about EcoNazis is the fact that THEY never seem to suffer the consequences of their actions. Only the rest of us who feed them through our Tax Dollars seem to get hurt.

  3. Les- That would make a good post... where is your blog you said you where going to start?
