CRISIS LEVELS OF DEBT HERE IN NEVADA COUNTY: A few Nev Co residents will be commandeering floor time at the Sept 8th BOS meeting to discuss Unfunded Liabilities and what the BOS is prepared to do to slow the crisis.


September 8, 2009 meeting at 9:00AM at the Rood Center

Only government could create food lines in one of the most productive agriculture regions in the world (central valley of CA). I cannot for the life of me figure out why people look to government to fix problems (like cuddling up to a fire to cool yourself down).

KVIE had a piece Tuesday night Sept 1 at 8pm, continuing the series California Water entitled "Water Crisis". #122 in the series. The show was underwritten by Assoc. of Calif. Water Agencies.

The segment showed the problems associated with the water allotments forced on valley farmers, including the drastic cuts in agricultural production and huge rise in unemployment.

Very little air time given to the cause, although near the end of the airing some Cal. Water Resource members mentioned San Luis Reservoir was near empty because the pumps feeding the reservoir were turned off. They asked for combined efforts between environmentalists, agriculture and government to solve the problem.

Rerun of series #122 is not in KVIE's near term schedule.

E. Wyatt: Are the citizens wanting to raise the unfunded liabilities issue on the 9/8 BOS meeting agenda, or do they plan to use the 15 minute public comment allotment? The county on-line BOS agenda is way behind. DC

I firmly believe in the notion that "most people do what is in their own, best, self-interest"...

I suspect that the money changers have entered the mainstream again...be it for cost savings, or profit...

Where is the admonition of Jesus that said "feed the poor", "do unto others as you would do unto yourself", and "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:38-44)"

I pray for you.

Without profit you have the USSR; even the Politburos of China and Vietnam now believe that.

All prayers accepted and appreciated.

One of the toughest faucets of Christian faith is knowing/accepting that you/we are sinners. Knowing this is an important piece of the Christian walk. There is much truth/honesty in the following statement - "most people do what is in their own, best, self-interest."

Many believe (as do I) that free market capitalism provides the best stage/opportunity for us to overcome our sin and complete good works (James- Faith without works is dead). Try to have faith or works in a socialized (read enslaved) existence.

I like the last sentence of the article of that article - 75% off the general fund goes to labor - doesn't leave much for anything constructive does it. What could they be doing - dreaming about what they could do if they got 30% - they can't have much money left to actually go do something???
