Releasing prisoners and wasting taxpayers' money is a bad idea

Thank you, Gov. Brown and Mr. President, for releasing prisoners, both federal and state. And since you don't know where they are, you don't have to worry about it; once released, it's not your problem.

In doing so it frees up moneys for, say, high-speed rail at $90-some billion, conservatively speaking, which we can spend the rest of our lives paying for so people will get to Los Angles three hours sooner.

Or it frees up money to dig tunnels under the Delta in California — so who needs asparagus, potatoes or onions? How much water flow do you need to keep salt water from coming up the Delta? Turning the Delta into a wetland is probably not such a bad idea, as it certainly won't sustain planting vegetables in salt water.

How about putting people in charge who care what happens to the Delta, instead of the Department of Water Resources doing what you delegate?

    Trista,

    I'm impressed that someone knows about allodial title.

    Perhaps I can interest you that the US government which granted "allodial title" in the 1800's, was itself a corporation. So how can a corporation grant allodial title?

    I am aware of someone who served his sentence yet remained in prison and they wouldn't release him, without judicial authorization.

    Maybe in this case the prisoner would be released.

    Kim,
    Read the exchange between John Beckman and myself...

    He admitted that the SJCOG Habitat fee program does receive "other funding"

    We need a conservative as governor of this state- I don't care if he is a republican or Democrat..Even if they can not control the legislature, at least maybe they can disband all these government unelected bureaucracies like the Water Board and the Air Resources Board and appoint some people with some sanity. The Bay Delta Conservation Plan will admittedly remove 28,232 ag jobs in the area through land acquisition to make it habitat. The San Joaquin Council of Governments, INC already has 19 conservation easements and is will on its way. Development fees (public money) are used to buy these easements up. Then we, the taxpayers and private developers, pay millions to pay some International organization to manage it.
