North Idaho’s Abundant Water Resource

As the Western United States experiences serious drought, the need for water becomes more and more obvious. In California, some cities are indeed running out of the ability to flush toilets, let alone cook and drink water from their own sources.

That’s the formula for water rights regulation. It goes to the source. Isn’t it better to live near or on the source, if one can?

Water is Gold

An abundant supply of healthy, clean water is like gold in that it becomes a currency of sorts. It has the power to direct human beings in almost any direction of power-mongering, always justified.
