Water problem solved!

Splash! NASA moon strikes found significant water. By comparison, a pipeline to a desalination plant in Savannah doesn’t sound nearly so bad…

I assume the corps of engineers will be called in to decide how to use the water, and maybe build a few levies to prevent flooding.

Just drink your own urine. At least that’s what Oregon hippies tell everyone to do.

Kyle, be sure to let Sonny know his water problem is now solved.

- This has to be the weirdest political satire forum
in the AJC website’s recent history. Cool picture,
though.

This is exactly the kind of horrific waste you get when you give the government the power to tax income and don’t hold your elected leaders to the limits imposed upon them by the very document they take an oath to uphold.

And frankly, a pipeline to reservoirs in the smokies makes a hell of a lot more sense that one to an overpriced desalinization plant in Savannah. Rain fall in the Smokies. It falls salt-free.

Nice idea Kyle, one I’ve advocated for on several occasions. Once there was even a study to pipe desalinized water to Atlanta from the coast – price tag $250K – that seems to have gone nowhere. Considering no other states are ever willing to share their water resources with this state and Georgia according to the Feds actually has no sovereign rights to its own water, this problem will continue unresolved. Now that the rains have returned it really doesn’t matter much, the age old water saga will be followed as many times before until the next drought takes place, then everyone retreats back to pandemonium over what to do and why nothing was done before to prevent this so-called water scarcity brought on by a so-called once in a lifetime drought event that in reality occurs regularly from happening – Deja Vu :roll:

The NASA satellite, which followed the LCROSS rocket and analyzed the plume of ejecta, looks suspiciously like a divining rod. I did not know that dowsing was rocket science.

NASA’s next project: To recruit Native American astronauts for a rain-dance on Mars.

Sonny Perdue announced on Sunday that he will be flying to the moon to investigate the opportunity this provides Georgia. “I’ll be canceling 2 trips to China, a trip to London, a trip to Brazil, a trip to Barbados, a jaunt to Australia, 4 visits to South Korea, but it should pay off,” said Perdue as he donned his space cadet helmet.

While there Perdue plans to claim a huge chunk for Georgia. During his visit Perdue plans on delivering his very own Pray for Rain session in order to deliver the moon from its long drought. “We’re working now with Cal Tech and MIT trying to come up with a system that can deliver fresh moon water to Georgia. We’ll then channel any profits to Georgia Power Moon Hydro Company.” We need to start paying them now, they are going to build the dams we’ll need for all the moon rain water the prayers will produce.”

When asked what he intends to do with the addition of the 1,000,000 round trip SkyMiles he’ll earn on his moon trip the Governor blushed and said, “Shucks I will hardly notice.” The moon trip will bring his frequent flier miles up to a whopping 213,000,000.

The average Georgia Power bill rise $12 starting next month. (Businesses excluded.)
