Water Markets [sic] -- no, we do NOT have them in California, but we also have A Word from the Farmers on that topic.

BEST: Stupid Water Bills -- EBMUD fails. Big time. (Nothing changed?)

Soda Taxes are a good idea.

Religion is belief; science is knowledge.
Make public policy accordingly.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now.
