And the dam broke

"In her ongoing audition to be Joe Biden’s veep pick, Michigan Governess Gretchen Whitmer all but convicted a private dam owner for the disastrous floods that struck the middle of the state last Wednesday.

However, it wasn’t the dam company that was trying to save a few clams—it was Whitmer’s radical attorney general, Dana Nessel.

Nessel was suing the dam company to raise the lake level three feet in order to save mussels—both endangered and common—and in their response, the dam company cited safety as a reason for not doing so."

Endangered mussels? Show me. Mussels are a horrendous problem here. They clog water intakes for municipal water supplies. I have been involved,personally,in surveying clooged intakes. Yeah,they filter feed.That they do well. We used to dive below Foote Dam on the AuSable River,bringing up hundreds of pounds of lead and hooks. Last time I was there,there were mussel shells so thick and deep,you couldn't see the sand bottom..These things cling to literally everything.
Mussels are especially problem-ish to hydro power plants.They rob velocity from falling water.
The only mussels I have seen..ever...are the invasive species known as Zebra Mussels,and they are in Wixom Lake.I have been lake diving since about 1990.

Shameful politics can cause a flood that wipes out all people have worked for.

Politics killed 80+people in the Paradise Kali fire. Politics is killing thousands with the CCP flu. Politics is killing thousands as they commit suicide with no hope. You would think it would be time for change but politics won't let it change.

Gretchen Whitmer was overly dramatic. I live in the town of 41,000 that she said would be under 9 ft of water. I was in the evacuation zone and the water stayed 1 mile away from my residence. Sure, a couple of dams broke and there was a major flood. But a minority of the town experienced flooding and a very tiny fraction of homes experienced 4 ft or so of water above floor level.

A play to maximize federal funds? Maybe. She blew overdid the virus lockdown in the same manner.

Thinking about this today while working on the tractor...
The most likely scenario is: Either she,or somebody she knew,and possibly owed a favor,likely lived or had a nice place along the shore of Wixom Lake,and did not like seeing their shoreline recede down 3 feet. They can't sue anybody because their shoreline looks like crap,so they cook up a "study" showing how devastating this water level drop is for some imaginary mussel.They sue based on this new "science",and who can argue with it? It's science,so it can't be wrong,only the dam owner can be. Boom...screw him,the water is back up so they can step onto their pontoon boat easy.
Now,she is under the microscope for being the one most responsible for this three feet extra.
How many cubic feet of water is there in 2,000 acres of lake X 3 feet?
43,560 square feet per acre,X 3...X 2000 acres....

If this is the case, where is their pontoon boat now?
And how 'bout that lakefront property?
OOPS!
Oh, and the mussels are dead now.

Owners will bring a law suit against the dam operators to pay for damages. Operators will go broke and the state will ask the feds to pay.

And the lawyers for the Feds will probably agree to pay with fake money...

Notice how many layers of lawyers are being kept in 'business' here...

The days of the Margaret Thatcher woman are over. Now we have the leftist indoctrinated "liberated" females who are angry they do not have a penis, hate men, and who must seize every opportunity to clearly demonstrate that they are in-charge without bothering to consider how stupid, petty, and incompetent it makes them look. They bully through because most men are brow-beaten since childhood that masculinity is bad while acting out female emotions is good. If that Whitmer or the other 'Karen' has men in their lives I bet they are subservient pussies.

Saw a video yesterday,posted on youtube by a Michigan lawyer,who basically came to the same conclusion as I,only he thought it was more based as a large number of shoreline owners bitching about lo water,as opposed to my idea of it being one or two. But yeah,Whitler and Nessel basically own this debacle. That simple three feet would have made a profound difference. There was no safety buffer. They compelled the dam owner into an unsafe and life threatening situation.

EDIT....found it...

Brow-beaten or not if their dicks can't drag them through that childhood bullshit by the time they're 18 they aren't really men anyway so no loss there.

"Michigan AG Sued Dam Owner Weeks Before Failure After Lower Lake Level Previously ‘Caused Death’ of Mussels"

"Just three weeks before a dam broke in Michigan, triggering mass flooding, Attorney General Dana Nessel sued the owner after it “illegally” lowered the lake level in 2018 and 2019.


Specifically, Nessel was more focused on the plight of freshwater mussels in Wixom Lake than what could happen if the water raised to dangerous levels."
