i did look and found it is the billionaire couple the Resnicks..there are many articles on this couple and here is one of them from the same site you used...An excellent profileAnd look at who owns those almond farms, that send 90% of their crops overseas.
And then came the current drought, which started in 2011, when suddenly the region’s groundwater was being pumped up at an estimated rate of nearly seven cubic kilometers per year. That’s the same amount of water that everyone in Texas uses at home annually
I discovered it when I visited my son in Sacramento last year. I saw the massive groves and found out that they are also buying huge grape vineyards to suck the water out from under them for their own use.
it all starts with us ... I've been turning down plastic straws for decadesactually Starbucks is banning plastic straws in all their stores state wide so they won't be in any state at Starbucks eventually.
I'm all for it they started here in Washington.. there will be less plastic in the landfills and on the sides of the roads like they
definetly are here. California made it so you have to pay for your plastic bags at the store too nothing wrong with
it maybe people will appreciate not littering them more and as far as the needles it is not legal.. People just dump them
where they want in SF they do it in Seattle too.. Not sure where that fact came from but they aren't legal.. anywhere that
I know of (except they can get clean needles at places) and illegal is spelled wrong in that meme
it's not a bad state at all ... but it's losing it's ever loving mindThank you T for your prayers ?
I am also sorry you lost your home ?
I agree California state tax is awful and housing is ridiculous it’s why I haven’t moved back
I know there are issues there, there’s issues here here too in WA the sound transit law passed
and it tripled the cost of vehicle registration in the Tacoma area, I’m just saying every state has
it’s problems even California.. but it’s not the only bad state ?
I said I wouldn’t post in these threads again but I’m here to respond lol
I’ve spent 45 years there and loved almost every moment of it lolit's not a bad state at all ... but it's losing it's ever loving mind
I spent 4 years there, loved every moment of it, but there's not a day that goes by that I'm not grateful I don't live there anymore
we ran into smoke from that fire, it's a smell I've smelled my whole life, my father fought those fires
Texas has been picked on since the day I stepped in this place, yee haw! lol
I see it as just a bit of fun at California's expense, they're giving us so much material lol

but that would require the forest overgrowth would need cutting and that would reduce the amount of fuel needed to keep cali burning and the disaster relief funding would dry upThis whole straw business is crazy! They used to make paper straws exclusively! They still do, and sell them on Amazon, Walmart and everywhere else on-line. I'll bet even California could find manufacturers to supply the entire Pacific coast with them, along with paper bags, wooden stirring sticks and wood toothpicks.
