Oroville Lake, California

The dam/spillway holding back Oroville Lake out in California is about to fail. Towns beneath the lake are being evacuated. Keeping track on twitter and it's pretty crazy.

I just read yesterday the dam wasn't in danger of failing.

It seems like the dam itself is in good shape but the spillway will probably fail which will still result in a lot of flooding. California and water seem to have a very poor relationship

Send evacuees to SF. That's a sanctuary city.

Yay!Drought's over!

Apparently this is one of the tallest dams in America at 771ft. Water spilling over it. Live updates on the news. Not looking good.

Good idea. And while we're at it, maybe Texas can leave, so the taxpayers aren't saddled with the multi-billion dollar wall.

We voted the wall in, so there's that.

I'll trade illegals and the billions they cost us annually over being saddled with a wall.

The financial considerations have a potential big picture side to the "equation" that some want to ignore, just as a double-dip public employee like a school administrator or teacher that retires and comes back has a side that usually doesn't make it's way into the argument.

Like the illegal, the returning retiree may work a little cheaper. Immediate bottom-line reward for going to both choices. In the big picture, though, that retiree is keeping a younger person out of that job. That younger person would be making contributions to the shared retirement plan - building assets that have a long time to grow. Not only is the double-dipper negating those contributions, they are drawing down the retirement plan at the same time.

Similarly, if illegals are kept out/thrown out and businesses are severely penalized for employing them, and then welfare is curtailed at the same time, we can end up with a few different improvements. A far healthier Social Security fund, more tax revenue, and if past welfare recipients end up pushing lawn mowers or doing menial manufacturing jobs, less of a drain via public assistance. We get an "add" at the same time we lose a "take".

Or, think of it as similar to a sports team that defeats a divisional opponent. One win creates a two game swing in the standings.
