Could this be it?

By "it," I mean the ruling by our lords and mastersthe benevolent and glorious Federal Government that finally inspires the states to shout, "Get stuffed!"

Tombstone, AZ may just be facing its own burial, thanks to the actions of a bunch of unelected, unaccountable douchebags who actually think they matter.  If their demand that we return to the days of horse and wagon doesn't expose them as humanity-hating Luddites, I don't know what will.

“In some areas, Tombstone’s pipeline is under 12 feet of mud, rocks and other debris, while in other places, it is hanging in mid-air due to the ground being washed out from under it,” the institute reported.

However, instead of allowing repairs as has happened in the past, “federal bureaucrats are refusing to allow Tombstone to unearth its springs and restore its waterlines unless [city officials] jump through a lengthy permitting process that will require the city to use horses and hand tools to remove boulders the size of Volkswagens.”

Dranias told WND the organization expects to hear a decision on its request for a preliminary injunction by the end of next month.

Emphasis mine.  And now, an open message to our Governor.

Governor Brewer, there is only one civilized response to this.  It's very simple.  It consists of two words, and the first one rhymes with "duck."  Stand up against this tyranny, and we will back you.


  1. The rest of the story is that the pipeline was established before 1900 when technology was not sufficient to tap into the millions of gallons of water underneath Tombstone, only a hundred feet below ground -- so much water that the mines were finally closed because they couldn't keep the water pumped out. So instead of using what's under their feet, they want to rebuild 25 miles of pipe to take water from across the valley. It will cost a lot to rebuild the pipeline -- more than to drill the wells there in town. The pipeline feeds a lot of homes outside Tombstone that have tapped into it illegally, so most of the water gets used before it actually gets to Tombstone. Tombstone gets about 25% of their water from the line. The tappers get water free while the people near the spring where the pipeline originates must buy theirs from lower in the mountains due to Tombstone's pipe. The Tombstone town council wants to sit on their water without using it AND take water from the other side of the valley. The pipeline fell into disrepair and was then finished off by mudslides after a forest fire. It's called an Act of God coupled with demolition by neglect. Let the pipeline go. It makes NO sense. As we say in AZ: whiskey's for drinking and water's for fighting!

  2. Interesting...I'll check into that. Wish you'd left a link or two.
