Cutting off their noses to spite their faces

For months, San Francisco, a hotbed of anti-Donald Trump sentiment, has found itself in the awkward position of being aligned with his administration over California water policy.

On Tuesday, the city’s leaders said the alliance was unbearable.

In an 11-0 vote, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors agreed in a resolution to support the State Water Resources Control Board’s proposal to leave more water in the San Joaquin River and its tributaries to benefit struggling fish populations. The supervisors’ vote is subject to veto by Mayor London Breed, although the board could override the veto.

The vote splits the city from the Trump administration and instead moves its support to a state plan that its utilities commission warns could lead to severe drinking water shortages for its nearly 884,000 residents.

    Lets really cause heads to ‘plode in San Francisco…

    The vast majority of their water comes from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir…a canyon in the Sierras that John Muir thought was more beautiful than Yosemite….until San Francisco dammed it for their water…

    Free Hetch Hetchy! Tear down that dam, restore the ecosystem…..

    The eco-terrorists hate you and they want you to die. They somehow figure they will be OK. Hmmmm.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
