Delta-Mendota Canal reverse pumping

California water districts forced to reverse canal flow

03 July 2015

Several water districts in the California Central Valley, as usual, stored water in the San Luis Reservoir, assuming they could swap that water for water coming from the Delta-Mendota Canal this summer. However, this year, because of the drought, there is no incoming canal water. The water districts are installing pumps to reverse water flow […]

Mountain House CA water shortage due to dimbulb local govt

01 July 2015

Mountain House CA, a planned community of 12,000, had ample warning in 1994 it should have a backup water supply and ignored it. Today, its sole source of water has been shut off by California due to the drought and Mountain House is forced to buy expensive water on the open market. This is a […]

ECB cares only about the bonds, it cares nothing about Greece

01 July 2015

In case you thought somehow ECB and other banksters cared about helping Greece, they don’t. Their primary, perhaps sole concern, is desperately trying to keep a lid on Greek bond prices. When those bond prices start skittering, all manner of hidden risk, cross-default payments, contagion, and formerly carefully hidden risk comes popping to the surface. […]

Greece will default today, Puerto Rico will soon

30 June 2015

Here’s a tip to banksters. Loaning money to and buying debt from countries you know are in financial trouble often means they won’t be able pay you back. Loaning them money so they can pay back earlier loans is a textbook definition of insanity. Yet this is what passes for financial wisdom in our crooked, […]

Greece debt

Eurozone rejects Greece request for bailout extension

27 June 2015

Let’s be clear. The only reason EU wants to lend money to Greece is so Greece can pay back earlier loans. EU big banks and central banks then would not have to mark-to-market the toxic slop on their books.

U.S. computer industry being killed by greedy executives

25 June 2015

Cringely deftly dissects the real problem with American business; the short-sighted greedy idea that goosing the stock price is what is best for the company.

Black Oak Arkansas. Albert Hall

The Confederate Flag, Ethan Allen, and regional differences

23 June 2015

Symbols change through time. The Confederate flag at one time was often a symbol of pride in being southern and a fine way to make Yankee heads explode. I saw Black Oak Arkansas perform in the 1970’s in Chicago and during the show lead singer Jim Dandy, grinning hugely, waved a ginormous Confederate flag. I […]
