Congress Moves To Seize Control of All US Waters
This is one (of many) part that worries me:
The proposed definition states: "The term 'waters of the United States' means all waters subject to ebb and flow of the tides, the territorial seas, and all interstate and intrastate waters and their tributaries, including lakes, rivers, streams (including intermittent streams), mudflats, sandflats, wetlands, sloughs, prairie potholes, wet meadows, playa lakes [a flat dried up area, esp. a desert basin...] natural ponds and all impoundment of the foregoing, to the fullest extent that these waters are subject to the legislative power of Congress under the Constitution."
The "impoundment"???? I don't think so Scooter!!!!!!!!!!! What they hell are we doing? We have a well, does that mean they know control our water? Tell us to convert to county system and pay for what we previously owned?
Has anyone heard of this before? Of course not! Congress just draws up this crap and tries to pass it before anyone sees it. Luckily SOMEONE is checking the voting schedules of Congress or we'd never know what was going on. WHY? Because what is supposed to be the people's Watch Dog, the media, no longer does their job.
This could have a profound impact on farmers, orchards, cattle ranches, just think of any place or business that uses water. I bet this is a back door way for them to push through parts of their Cap & Tax bill, because they know it will not pass in it's original form. No means No!!!!!!!! They don't get that.
Once again it is up to us. Call, write, email your Representatives and Senators that this is wrong.
