Who knows, who cares - if they leave that means all the more water for me who'll stay behind!

I do wonder if we'll ever be able to use our own direct gray water for our own lawns and gardens, like when we do dishes or take showers.

Idiot boy Udall read a list - I guess that solves the problem.

Another dumb as crap solution to a real problem -
read a series of notes from a conference that he did not even participate in.

Another clownbot on patrol - UDALL and HEINRICH both are BS!

wants this, but the county caved to this old vindictive coot who threatened to sue them if he was delayed any longer. This was based on water we don't have and won't have with the drought and climate change.

It is called population growth. Like immigration. Want to go to a one child family and stop people from moving. Good thoughts.

no. i just want people to stop whining about the inevitable and natural results of their own actions.
people want to have a half-dozen kids, bulldoze the entire county for subdivisions, and allow the place to be overrun by illegals and texans. fine. but then no bitching when it comes time to face the consequences.
ugh

Guess we can always start passing laws and sterilizing and looking more like China. Worked there. Clean environment. Or we can call us poor sinners in the new political vernacular. The more things change the more the stay the same.

Love the anti-religious rants that sound like a true believer because they feel they have the new word. Government commandments and most just buy it as liberating from the old superstitious beliefs of the past. too funny.

All of us here in New Mexico are doing our job to help keep the water flowing to El Paso.

We've even had ceremonies and congregations praying. Can't figure out why the Chemtrails aren't producing rain....

And there is the Santa Fe Water Awareness Group and the upcoming Santa Fe Global Water Festival 2015. Water Wheel Ceremonies and Water Energetics to Climate Change, Fluoride and Fracking.

The smell of water from rain or sprinklers...not taken for granted. To much virga lately.

Makes you wonder about the Anasazi.

I'm back. Its no wonder pagan rituals are cropping up to try and save water problems of the American Southwest. One sure fire solution to reducing waste is to enforce wasting water and disconnecting outside water faucets. I'm sure I can change the way things are done in your town right quick.
