While all Californians are under mandatory water restrictions, CBS2 News cameras went undercover and found some federal facilities may be wasting water for hours at a time.

And government workers weren’t happy when Investigative Reporter David Goldstein tried to get answers.

“Can you shut that off? Or I’m going to have to confiscate your cameras,” Lina Satele of the VA Public Affairs Office told Goldstein and a CBS2 cameraman.
“No, you won’t,” Goldstein replied.

Satele claimed that since the investigative team was on federal property she could take the cameras.

Read the whole thing — you’d think it was satire if you didn’t already know better.

It’s true that California has a water problem, but droughts come and go. The Veterans Administration has an entitlement problem, which can be cured only by zeroing out its budget, firing its employees, and exorcizing all of its buildings before nuking the sites from orbit.

Our vets deserve vouchers for whatever health plans they choose — not to be ignored and/or bossed around by petty tyrants like Lina Satele.
