Pap and Seder: America's Water Problem

Ring of Fire hosts Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder discuss the tremendous dearth of water that is becoming apparent in the country, including the story of a massive NSA center in Utah that will require two million gallons of water a day to keep their massive, personal data-filled computers cool.

1. WTF?

It's okay with Texas to go dry because they brought that on themselves, but it's no okay with the rest of the country to go dry because of fracking? Biased much?

Texas is a cattle state and that will affect the price of beef nationally. Other states can't pick up the slack in the beef department as there's a certain amount of beef in commodity trades. A shortage of cattle in Texas forced the shutdown of a plant run by Cargill Inc., one of the three largest U.S. processors.

Cattle country is in need of quite a bit of moisture, not just in Texas but in Montana too. Cattle futures are dry, pun intended.

But it's Texas, so who GAF. SMH

Politics in Texas suck, but I'm convinced repugs have stolen various state gubernatorial elections starting with McMonkey. For 100 years, Texas was Blue until the mid-90's, that's when the trend started reversing, turning the state into a fucked up state politically.

That convinced me that Papantonio is not the unbiased reporter that he makes himself be, otherwise he'd do a little research before he speaks negatively about Texas.

I love Texas, but I loathe the repug politics.

2. I believe that Texas beef is exported because most Texans cannot afford to by it at

grocery stores. Many herds were sold due to droughthy pastures and a loss to the rancher or farmer. Commodity broker middle men, make all the money; they run the price up.
