[california] taking its first steps without completely understanding

H/T His Girl Friday:

CALIFORNIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN A LEADER,
LET’S BE THE LEADER IN TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK,
ONE STATE AT A TIME.
Imagine that the State was turning off the water in CA farmers' fields, that supply 25% of this nation's food (to "save" a little fish called the Smelt), and farmers were competing with international beverage corporations that sell bottled water, and their fields were turning into the CA dustbowl. It's happening.

Imagine that
due to our own version of Cap & Trade, AB32, passed in 2006, with new requirements every year, that our logging industry was being shut down, and we were forced to import lumber from WA and OR at 30% higher costs. It's happening.

Imagine that for both of these industries and many others (like cement companies) , AB32 is outlawing non-compliant diesel engines coming this Sept, and that they have to replace all their very expensive equipment with EXPENSIVE "COMPLIANT" EQUIPMENT (huge chippers, large combines, etc, that cost tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars), or stop working. It's happening.

Imagine the jobs that we have already lost being tripled, or more...what will that do to budget/taxpayers? Not to mention the workers who lose their jobs. And food prices increases. Think about the "domino effect."
It’s happening.

Imagine what would happen IF, farmers and loggers, and other industries' owners and workers, and whole cities that depend on these industries, got together with
CA Tea Party Patriots in our State's Capitol, on August 28th (the day that Tea Party Express leaves Sacramento to head to DC for "Taxpayer March on DC 9/12"). AND just IMAGINE what it would look like if there were 50,000 PROTESTORS, HUGE TRUCKS AND EQUIPMENT PARKED IN THE STREETS IN FRONT/AROUND THE CAPITOL BUILDING, completely SHUTTING DOWN SACRAMENTO, BEGINNING AT NOON....ALL DEMANDING THE REPEAL OF AB32 AND A "HARDSHIP CAUSE" FOR THE WATER TO BE TURNED ON.....

CAN YOU
IMAGINE?!?!?!?


Well, imagine no more
...IT'S HAPPENING!

What: SAC828 PROTEST -- STOP ECO-TYRANNY, REPEAL AB32
When: FRIDAY, AUGUST 28TH, NOON
Where: SACRAMENTO, CA, CAPITOL BUILDING

IT STARTS HERE…AMERICA IS WATCHING

Great stuff and very, very necessary BUT it is not going to result in anything sustainable ten years down the track as long as people don't also understand this.
