Kathleen Sebelius: Two decades in politics

Kathleen Sebelius is the nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services in Obama's Cabinet. She has served as Kansas' governor since 2002 and before that was insurance commissioner and a state representative.

— Eminent domain and water rights are going to get two years of study courtesy of a bill signed into law Monday by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius that started over a Douglas County water dispute.

Supporters of HB 2860 said it was needed to prevent the state from allowing Public Wholesale Water Supply District No. 25 from using eminent domain to appropriate water.

They said that was needed to protect Kansas River Valley farmers from losing availability to water to grow a wide variety of specialty crops.

The bill would put the water district's proposal on hold for two years and require a special committee to study issues concerning the use of eminent domain in trying to attain water rights.

I keep telling y'all this.Our next great civil war will not be over Mexicans or gold.It will be over water.Mark this day on your calander,the day when I said it.But continue to go about the shameless and unchecked usage of our earth's resources.And you may want to consider preparing to defend your water source if you are fortunate enough to own a well.I said this a couple of years ago.Defend it in the courts at first.But eventually in the field.As civil and rational behavior collapses,the very rich will be the last to maintain their private water resources but they too will come under fire.Not from the gubment or the media,but from each other.The dollar will be worth a penny and they will scramble to find alliance but will find none.And by this time the inner city gangs will have become organized and the brutal warriors of that culture will stand at the city's borders,armed and in charge.Mark this day on your calander,my prophecy diverted with this bill.Verily I say unto you,but only for a short while.Come hither as I minister unto you.
