THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

California's drought getting even worse and we keep adding millions of new residents

National Weather Service released a U.S. Drought Monitor update, which shows
that drought conditions have worsened over the last week.

California is going down
  • Democrat or Republican, it does not matter.  Neither party really gives a damn about long term conservation as countless millions of new people (water users) come to the desert called California.
  • Droughts can last decades or even centuries.  Instead of building desalination plants to create new water the political hacks want to suck dry the Sacramento Delta or add a couple feet to the tops of damns and pray for new water in the form of rain that may not come.
  • Californians keep draining dry our natural water supplies creating an ever larger desert.

California's drought conditions have worsened over the past week with the percentage of the state suffering from the highest category increasing, the National Weather Service said Thursday.

"Exceptional" drought conditions have spread in Central California since a week ago, weather officials said. Areas in Northern California have also moved into this category since last week, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

Almost 33% of the state faces exceptional conditions. About 25% of the state faced those conditions last week reports the Los Angeles Times.

Every part of California remains in what is considered severe drought.
A year ago, no part of the state was in exceptional drought conditions, the weather service said.
The drought has prompted water conservation efforts as well as rationing in some parts of the state. L.A. saw record dry conditions this winter, and snowfall in the Sierras has also been significantly down.

A Man-Made Desert
Tulare Lake was the largest US freshwater lake west of the Mississippi until it was sucked dry into a man-made desert.
Tulare Lake was once the receptacle of the watershed on the lower San Joaquin Valley and became, like the Sacramento Delta, the site of systematic transformation by agricultural land speculation of a riparian ecosystem. It was home to the Yokuts Indian Nation and the destination of the southernmost runs of spawning Chinook Salmon.

The Sinking Central Valley
It has taken thousands and thousands of years for unground water to build up in California.  In only a few decades cities and agribusiness have drained those supplies so much that the Central Valley is sinking.
About 30 percent of California’s water supply comes from underground supplies, more during droughts. Eighty percent of state residents rely to some degree on groundwater. Some towns, cities and farming operations depend entirely on it.

The Future of California.
"You're a plague and we are the cure."
"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure."
