CALIFORNIA FLUSH is the new fun game
where you gamble your lawn on the water you save,
fined five hundred large for not playing their way.
CALIFORNIA FLUSH-.

Middle of a drought dragging on for years
when the Gov'nor said, "Better find their fear:
hit them where it hurts in their wallets so dear."
CALIFORNIA FLUSH-.

        Ain’t you heard, we’ve got troubles in those River Cities,
        where the rivers don't flow and the lakes don't show?
        There's no rain or snow any more-?
        Ain't you heard, we've got troubles and it ain't so pretty?
        Still we pay drought no heed. We insist there's no need.
        Is it ign'rance or greed? We'll waste some more-.

Water twice a month; let your lawn turn brown.
Better dare not waste even half an ounce.
CALIFORNIA FLUSH 'fore you send it down.
CALIFORNIA FLUSH-.

Lady Gaga rants that we all should save.
Bet her lawns aren't brown in her mansion estates.
Not many golfing greens will be with'ring away.
Not many swimming pools will be emptied today.
Too many campaign donors will be getting their way  with the
CALIFORNIA FLUSH-.

        Ain't you heard, we've got troubles in River Cities.

[ 7-22-16 ]
Now, I've just been told that we've done real good:
twenty- eight percent: better than they thought we would.
So, they've taken off all restrictions on lawns:
water any day, any time or amount.
But, you'll have to pay a brand new surcharge
'cause you didn't use enough in your yard.
Now, my lawn's all dead & my plants are, too.
Ev'ry time I turn, seems I've just been screwed  by the
CALIFORNIA FLUSH-.

[spoken]   "Jerry Brown is the new green"

7-19-16:
Even 'though Californians cut water use by 28%
& amid many new ads declaring drought is still severe & telling everyone to save water,
CA water agencies removed lawn water restrictions & promptly charged home owners a surcharge
for NOT using enough water.   WTF ?!?!

7-15-14:
CA State Water Board Emergency Regulation to reduce outdoor water use:
"mandates minimum actions to conserve water supplies", but provides few details except:
no washing driveways & sidewalks;  no landscape runoff;  no hose car-washing w/o shut-off nozzle;
no potable water (except recirculated) in waterfalls & fountains;  all subject to up to $500/day fines.

http://celebritycribs.info/home-of-lady-gaga-in-l-a-is-normal/ - & Lady Gaga tells us we should save water?

Recommended:  reduce water usage by 20%;  let lawn go brown (water only 2x/month);  set mower blade to 3".
As usual, those exempted from compliance seem to include corportations & the wealthy.
http://ca.gov/drought/ - Compare arial maps of CA lakes & mountains to year or 3 prior.

The general attitude seems to be:  "Why should I cut my water usage if they don't?"
"Many water agencies are reluctant to put in place fines & other penalties
because it costs them millions of dollars in lost water sales,
which could lead them to raise rates to make up the difference."

TOP GOES THE DIESEL
WE'VE BEEN FRACKED
COME CLEAN WITH ME
TREE BUTCHERS OF LA
MR. WHEELER IN YOUR SUV
BP WANTS THEIR LIFE BACK
WHAT'S GOOD FOR MONSANTO
GASOLINE PRICES WERE PLUNGING
THE WORLD IS NOT YOUR ASHTRAY
GOING TO HELL (IN A HAND BASKET)
