And there’s nothing I can do
Don’t try to spare my feelings
Just tell me that we’re through
And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself
Cause breaking up is so very hard to do…
Here’s the fun part, but only if you’re a conservative with a fiendish sense of humor.First, huge population increases. These new pilgrims would range from native Californians (I presume we’d have dual citizenship) flocking back to their homeland to waves of anti-Trumpers desiring to live with like-minded sophisticates. Yes, California would take these ideological refugees. It’s already full of “Sanctuary Cities” and, under Calexit, would be a virtual sanctuary state, a magnet for tens of millions of immigrants from foreign countries, including, presumably all those from President Trump’s infamous seven Muslim-majority “countries of concern” who could afford the air fare.The Golden State would soon turn Golden Brown, too, and that isn’t a reference to California President-in-waiting Jerry Brown. I’m talking water rights, specifically the Colorado River. Already, a Denver utility is planning a huge expansion of Gross Reservoir in Boulder County. Wyoming has similar plans afoot, too, in a Colorado River tributary and officials in Nevada and Arizona covet more Colorado River water, too.Under Calexit, the interstate compact that apportions Colorado River water would be the subject of treaty negotiations between two sovereign nations, one of which has the water, and the other which wants it. Keeping the lush Imperial Valley from turning into another Death Valley could cost trillions.All those new people – you’d be looking at a population of 100 million – would need drinking water, which would necessitate water desalination plants, fueled most likely by the nuclear power plants the state is now busily decommissioning.
