Position Papers
Green fear of desert farms
Though Greens have learned anti-farm-subsidy rhetoric, they still haven't learned to speak well of other people's property rights. Perhaps the reason why is because journalists in the past century have learned to profit from writing stories of moral outrage over allegedly unjust poverty. I ask everybody to consider Kesterson stories in the context of a journalist-biologist coalition to advance socialism and expect fraud.
Kesterson: A Microcosm of Government Corruption
The enclosed position paper responds to a petition submitted to the California State Water Resources Control Board regarding regulation of discharge from farm field drains in the Grasslands area on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley in Merced County
