Tom Selleck quenches his thirst...illegally

 

“TV star Tom Selleck has been accused of stealing water amid California’s drought from a neighboring water district. [npr.org]

 

While in the drought most people schlepped,

Sweat in the daylight,  when  they slept.

The law conserving water kept,

All bound by conscience. All, except

Tom Selleck, wealthy aquaklept.*

 

*from the Greek “kleptein” = to steal +  the Latin “aqua” = water

  • But that's a pretty good looking pair of pears, there.
    BTW, Ultra is having Melon Mania.

    No amnesty for a libertarian in California? Who would of thunk it?

    "No amnesty for a libertarian in California? Who would of thunk it?"

    That seems to get down to some conservative I knew a way back contending that there was a distinction between libertarians and anarchists.

  • In reply to jack:

    I think libertarians would support our military and property rights, anarchists not so much.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    The discussion them was more along the lines of "if you are a libertarian, why do we need a police force?" to which this was his response. AW's comment about an hour ago seems to go to that point. It is one thing for a libertarian to say that it isn't the government's business whether one grows marijuana or plums outside the marketing quota on one's land, but another to steal the water, as opposed to what I suppose that the libertarian view would be that "sure, I can pay four times as much if that would balance supply and demand."

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Every thief is a libertarian in a sense. But this has nothing to do with libertarianism; It has nothing to do with "collectivism" or a "global experiment". It's larceny, pure and simple.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    I completely agree, I gave the quote to highlight he was a libertarian.

    Of course I was also playing on the irony of the left's penchant for giving amnesty to potential voters who often reside in California.
