California spending drought money to prepare for flooding

California is currently experiencing a drought, probably caused by global warming, since such things are not naturally occuring phenomena.  In response, California is spending nearly a billion dollars, mostly on things unrelated to drought.  Sixy hundred sixty million dollars is being spent to prepare for floods:

Asked how spending money on flood prevention would help the drought, the governor [Jerry Brown] warned of "extreme weather events" caused by climate change. "And with extreme weather events, you get drought. And then all of a sudden, when you’re all focused on drought, you can get massive storms that flood through these channels and overflow and cause havoc," he said.

 Aha!  Jerry Brown is two steps ahead!  He realizes that global warming is causing the drought, and he understands that flooding is next.  In that light, it all makes sense.  Since we're going to have floods, there's no need to spend money on dealing with the drought, right?

California is also spending millions of dollars to give food and housing assistance to those affected by drought.  Which has nothing to do with droughts.

"This is just a down payment on our efforts to address the drought," he [a Democratic State Senator] said. "This is just the first round."

Do you think in the second round of drought relief that money will actually be spent on drought relief?

On Tuesday, the State Water Board tightened its watering restrictions, telling urban agencies to limit the number of days residents can water their yards. 

What about increasing supply?  What about building more dams?  No discussion of that in the article.  Would that offend some kind of fish or snail, perhaps?

If the solution is going to be entirely conservation, why don't we conserve water by deporting all the illegal aliens from California?  There are estimated to be nearly 3,000,000 illegal aliens in California.  Think how much water could be conserved if they were deported.

In California, everything is upside-down.  Illegal aliens are virtuous, jails are being emptied, and citizens are oppressed with high taxes.  People smoke "medicinal" dope like they're at a Rand Paul nominating convention.  Is it any wonder that we have a state government that spends money on flood control in the name of drought relief?
