Water War! McCain and Kyl dirty dealing with attorney to steal water rights from Navajo and Hopi People via SB 2109

Oh yeah the water wars are heating up and Senators John “I think I own 7 homes” McCain and Jon Kyl are on the point predators on the prowl to destroy the water rights of the Navajo and Hopi people in Arizona and New Mexico.  Apparently the two senators of questionable honor have been making very quiet verbal agreements with an attorney for the Navajo Tribe without any consultation of the Dine and Hopi people most concerned and most in need of water for their survival.  If they’ve got nothing to hide and if this is such a sweet deal for the Navajo and Hopi then why have the deal makers been keeping SB 2109 sooo out of the view of those most interested?  When the two senators representing the greedy needs of water hungry urban communities and industries arrived in Tuba City over three hundred Dine and Hopi people were there to share their NON acceptance of Senate Bill 2109 to take away their rights to water.  Grinning like greedy fat cats McCain and Kyl left Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly to face the wrath of his own people after their closed doors little chat.  110 Navajo communities will be negatively impacted by Senate Bill 2109 yet their own elected president is offering town hall meetings in only 7 communities to discuss SB 2109.

Where do you get your water from? Do you turn a knob and have all you need for drinking, cooking, and cleaning? Or do you have to put out containers to catch rainwater for consumption? What would you do if someone cut off your drinking water supply? What’s more important–water for drinking or for washing cars?  Would you water your lawn and deprive others of clean water to drink by doing so? Btw, drinking water out of those plastic bottles is bad for your health—and it’s someone else’s tap water anyway.  Yep, you enrich some plastic bottle company with every one you purchase thinking it contains ‘special’ magic water.

Oh and apparently the Peabody Coal Mining Company has a vested interest in this agreement. Yes, more dirty energy industry development on the move despite climate change realities…..

    Please raise your voices before yet another treaty is broken in favor of corporations, and many people face the potential of being waterless.
