Wow! Who in the hell do those enviro -whackos think they are? If a bunch of rich Butte County farmers want to sell their water rights to a bunch of rich farmers in Westlands Water District who in turn are selling their water to L.A while screaming the government won't give them more water to grow price (government) supported crops itís their business.

Screw those farm hands and the local business they support!
