Newsom pleaded for water cutbacks amid drought. Californians stopped listening.

The California public knows that Newsom policies killed education for millions of children, killed off  small business and forced friends and family to move out of State.  His lockdown has caused massive depression and mental illness in the State—then wants tax dollars to fix the problem he caused.  He is giving massive welfare to illegal aliens—now wants your tax dollars to kill babies from other States.  So, why is it a surprise that the public will not listen to him when he demands we cut water usage?  Everybody knows we have a drought.  Everybody also knows that he opposed the expansion of the Shasta Dam by 100, fully paid by the Feds.  He has refused to spend the $2.7 billion we voted for new water storage facilities.  No water—blame Newsom and the Democrats.  Why should we be punished for his effort to kill off the California economy?

“Newsom last summer asked residents to voluntarily cut water use by 15% compared to 2020. He encouraged people to water their yards less often, run dishwashers less and install more efficient appliances. The state’s conservation rate gradually increased, aided by some intense fall and early winter storms that reduced water demand.

But the first three months of 2022 have been some of the driest ever recorded. Water use increased slightly in January and February before exploding in March when compared to 2020 figures.”

THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY SUN, 5/12/22  

California’s drought is worsening yet new figures show that in March, water usage jumped nearly 19% compared with 2020, during one of the driest months on record.

The startling figures come despite pleas from the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, and other authorities who have urged residents to curb their water usages.

They also come the same day that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti ordered residents and businesses to restrict outdoor watering to just two days a week in an effort to conserve.

    During the previous drought I lost a beautiful shade tree due to water cut backs. I’m not planning on losing any more tree. When Gavin builds and expands the dams that we need, and if another drought hit, then and only then would I consider cutting back, and guess what, we won’t have to because we will actually have enough after.
    In short, Gavin can pound sand at his closed beaches.

    Honestly, I think this lack of interest by common citizens in complying is a result of the state’s MASSIVE overreach in the Covid lockdowns.
    Normally obedient productive citizens have gotten the message, this state’s politicians hate and despise you.

    I guess thousands of new rental units to house illegals at taxpayer expense don’t use water.

    When this idiot shut down the dam expansion at Shasta lake because whatever reason and removing dams way up north..it tells me you do not care about solving the problem. How long has this state known about this issue with water and hasn’t done shit to address it? I say let So Cal start running out of water and maybe the morons in charge will maybe do something other then kiss the illegals and criminals asses.
