    Watch CNN with every idiot reporter satnding in water to emphasize it's there. Then listen to every Tom, Dick and Jane be interviewed to whine about over flowing rivers because they chose to live on the edge of the water or built in a spillway and whine when they actually have to use it. It just emphasizes how stupid and self centered Americans who have a choice of where to live are. It also emphasizes how stupid our government is to cover them with flood insurance then allow them to rebuild in the same place. This is preventable with some common sense.

    This is the perfect picture of Trump. Always has his mouth open and saying something stupid.

    Newt cheated on his first wife while she was in bed battling cancer. He cheated on his second wife with his third. Also look up a video "Age of Transitions" on Google or Youtube. This is a term that Newt made himself for putting chips into humans. Calling us transhuman. He says countries that don't get the chip will be left behind. Sounds crazy look it up.

    Cokie Roberts said the samething about the 1993 flood, right after a toothless man had spoke. The poor and farmers work that land. In an a twist of fate she spoke at my sons' graduating class last weekend. I never heard her say it about the million dollar homes sliding into the ocean in California thou.
    The only solution I can see is the west needs water and at certain times of the year we have an abundance of water, pipelines of water from the Mighty Mississippi could be funneled to the western states and stored for drought and fire fighting reasons. Not to mention the jobs for the infrastucture of a pipeline. There could be stations built which would be to clean someof the water for human consumtion and some to pipe to use for fire fighting.
