Breaking: Gov’t Order Will Now Fine People For Excessively Long Showers

by Breitbart  |  published on April 5, 2015

watercrisis“This executive order is done under emergency power. It has the force of law. Very unusual. It’s requiring action and changes in behavior from the Oregon border all the way to the Mexican border. It affects lawns. It affects people’s — how long they stay in the shower. How businesses use water.”

[California Governor Jerry] Brown said to enforce his order, “Each water district that actually delivers waters — water to homes and businesses, they carry it out. We have a state water board that overseas the relationships with the districts. Hundreds of them. If they don’t comply, people can be fined $500 a day. Districts can go to court to get a cease and desist order. The enforcement mechanism is powerful. In a drought of this magnitude, you have to change that behavior and you have to change it substantially.”

Guest host host Martha Raddatz pointed out, “More water used for almond production than is used by all residents and businesses in San Francisco and Los Angeles combined.”

    It would not be a water problem lf you send the illegals home.

  • Lorretta

    STOP food and beverage corporations (like Nestles) from taking water from California bottling it and selling it for a profit. Do not buy bottled water.

    Brown is a idiot. Most of the drought problem was created back when Brown was governor the first time. Now he wants to be a hero and solve the problem he started. We cannot use the water from the Sacramento River delta, so it runs out to sea. The numerous small dams are drained when it rains. There will never be a solution to the water shortage now that we have an ever increasing bureaucracy to find a solution. If there is a solution, too many government employees would be out of a job!!

    What moron came up with this idea. ??? Bring 20 million illegals into the state but don’t you damn citizens and residents of California dare take long showers. You people need to put this idiot on a raft and push him off into the Pacific. What hypocrisy, what stupidity.

    • Maybe the sheeple should pass a law against stupid public officials.

  • Great paper with great news.

    Will Someone Please tell Gov. Moonbeam about putting in Many Desalinization Plants along the coastline as we DO have ALL the Ocean Water We NEED? If the environmental terrorists have their say AGAIN-he won’t do it, but it could be done as the plants are put onto Islands with
    palm trees-just as they have on the way to Santa Barbara, where an island is Actually an Oil Rig. PROBLEMS SOLVED. They could also use the coast below me, at Camp Pendelton where the Whole coast is used by the military. Time to USE these plants to clean our Ocean Water, and NOT FINE PEOPLE FOR BATHING- THIS GOV. IS A DOPE. TOO SIMPLE, TRY IT GOV-AND GET RID OF ECO TERRORISTS.

    Wake Up. Rainfall patterns are always changing. Vast deposits of petrified wood in desert areas prove that beyond any doubt, those areas had rainfall that supported the growth of trees. This is visible in semi-desert areas in the American west as well as in the Arabian peninsula. Much more recent evidence is available from ice-age days. God is busy keeping fools alive. He doesn’t have time to squeeze Jerry Brown’s pickle.

  • Stephen Gyetko

    Are you guys really retarded enough to believe this shit?! So, now, instead of taking our guns, they’re going to be peeking into our bathrooms, timing our showers!? What the fuck are you going to try and make the gullible idiots who read your shit swallow next? They’re going to watch us on the crapper and penalize us for flushing twice after a big dump?! You guys really take the fucking cake! Why don’t you all just join the fucking Klan and be done with it. Admit it: This whole shit swill of a site was born out of one thing: Fear of a black President! Idiots!

    • Dittio 1000 times. As long as the sheeple keep buying into this shit they will be shoveling it and all the stupid sheeple will get what they deserve while the big corporations and oil companies take it all.

    Stanley, I agree, the bottom line is that God is in charge. But we can’t ignore the fact that illegals (people) increase the population unnecessarily and put a greater demand on utilities such as water which is the subject here. For an example, can you imagine how many gallons of water 2 million or more illegals (people) use everyday? That could make a difference in a drought stricken area.

  • podunk1

    Send the illegals home & there’ll be more than enough. Maybe, just shut the water entirely off and the progressive parasites will go with them! Maybe Brown will dress up to look like Moses and lead them across the Rio Grande… or just start walking towards Hawaii if he feels the time is ripe.

  • Royce

    @ this time I have N O comment, it truly would not do any good except for you to read it. Have a blessed day.

  • Lynn

    I agree 100% with Lorene

  • Centurion

    So now we have to get permission from moonbeam brown to take a shower?? How did this idiot ever get elected? I didn’t vote for him.

  • Lorene B

    Too much strain on water usage? Deport all illegals, close the borders and stop all immigration, do this for a year, then there would be no need to measure the water. By the way, who would monitor the water usage by the one who signed the executive order???

    • don

      its simple they put a timer on the water meter–runs long time your in deep do do

      • Johnnyappleseed

        So then, who reads the meter?, who makes sure they show up in court with a water ticket?, what will the fine be? and many more questions, than adding a simple meter to ones line, when they already have a meter.
        Only in the land of oz (Californicate) can this be instituted, Detroit here we come, you need the company.
        Get one of your goofy judges to order more water from his bench….Dream on.

    • Stanley O’Bryant

      Lorene B., I couldn’t help but laugh at your comment. I Pray for people like you whom satan uses to spew his divisive comments. What has the so-called illegals have to do with the water shortage? God is clearly speaking through circumstances. Look at what’s happening in our country, not to mention the world. Too much snow in the north east, too much rain in the mid states, no rain in the west. God is not happy with how we are turning away from him and the way of life he established for us. The earth is the Lord’s, and He can do whatever he wants with His water. He’s showing us He’s still in control. Wake Up People!!!

      • punisher
