Gov. Moonbeam’s Water Crisis

PolitiChicks.comIn the lovely land of Gov. Moonbeam, residents are beginning to panic about the drought and the sudden executive order put in place. According to Gov. Brown, California is in a state of emergency due to our lack of rain and snow fall this past year.

A couple days back, Brown stated water agencies would be expected to carry out his executive order and fine individuals who take long showers and those who water their grass more than necessary.

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

What’s scary about these statements? The fact that the government can come in and regulate ANOTHER aspect of our lives. They know how much water we, as a household, use already. Now we’re left wondering just how the water agencies will regulate how long we shower. Will they install meters in people’s showers? Will they find a way to cut water off after you’ve showered for so many minutes? All of these possibilities are frightening when you think about how much privacy the individual loses.

In other words, thinking about taking a shower with Uncle Sam every morning before work is not my idea of a great time..

Why should more Californians be in uproar over the Governor’s comments? Because this executive order sets a precedence for the future of the once Golden State. If the Brown Administration decides to pursue monitoring things like how long we bathe, there’s no assurance that monitoring is only a temporary “solution.”

How many times throughout history has the government stepped in “temporarily” and never left? Social Security. The TSA. Both were created to fix a temporary problem yet both still exist today.

Government intervention is a slippery slope for more “necessary” intervention. Californians need to stand up and say no to this proposed idea.
