A part of the Conservative agenda has been and remains to gut regulations, willfully ignoring the damage that can be done and the very real associated threats.
The corporations conservatives are pandering to can’t possibly be so ignorant as to be unaware of the damage and threats – no sane person could be.
So it becomes a matter of motivation – the obvious being greed. But if a method exists to their particular brand of madness it could explain the wholesale rush to vacuum up water rights.
The value of water is going to exceed the value of oil, gas, minerals, or any other commodity, and that’s where the greed metric enters the picture.
Control water and everything else falls under the same control.
The effort at Standing Rock to protect water is everybody’s fight regardless of station in life or geographic location.
No one, and that’s no one will be immune to the affects – all the flag waving and all the “patriotic” talk won’t make a single bit of difference.
That’s something to consider when thinking about your children or future generations.
It’s something to think about when going on about “family values”.
It’s something to think about that the ignorance of this current administration is alienating the entire global community in such a short time is unparalleled in U.S. history.
