Outside, perhaps of the jobs situation, the California Levee system is the biggest failure of the state legislature to look ahead and plan, to address a MOST SERIOUS problem that could easily bring total disaster to northern California.

Laws passed about endangered species, rights for minority groups (whoever they are) and a million other things should have taken a back seat to resolving this huge, pending gut punch.

As either the Discovery Channel or the History channel pointed out (Can't remember which) should the "perfect storm" of heavy rains in the spring occur at the same time as a major earthquake, you're going to see towns totally disappear under water, and riots at Safeway for water. People will be desperate and ready to loot.(Now, remember how large your Vallejo Police Department is, and ponder that for a moment......(!).

You're going to see water being dispensed by the National Guard out of trucks in neighborhoods. Total rationing, for up to a couple of years. No car washing, yard watering, long showers. Poof!

It's really hard to estimate how dangerous this problem is, the magnitude of the danger at our door. Yet, largely because of being politically correct, and pandering to sundry "Special Interest" groups, this issue has been ignored.

You wait, this is just like not going to the dentist to address a mouth full of cavities. The problem is NOT going away.

Massive failure on our elected representatives part. Believe this article. Don't believe Sacramento.

Come on folks. You did not think the money that was issued for levees was actually going to be used for levees.

California got $78 billion in stimulus funding. All it did was pay for our bloated state government for the last two years. We are spending 10 billion on a section of high speed railway to nowhere. CA is broke and the rest of the USA will laugh at us when we ask for a bailout.

small correction, it's 18 million per mile from Madera to Bakersfield and the good news is that dianne fineswine's husband stands to make a killing on the deal, you just can't keep a good democrat down

Mariko Yamada, and Lois Wolk are trying hard to get the funds. While FixFaifield.Org may be critical, we try to look at the big perspective. Yamada and Wolk need more of our support.
