Carter-Era Rationing, Now for Water!

It’s always humorous to read stories of outrage during periods of rationing. The same people outraged by the water shortage in the Southeast don’t realize that shortages are a government made phenomenon. Instead of getting mad at football field owners and water park proprietors, perhaps they should protest city hall?

From the “timber shortage” in America at the turn of the twentieth century to the oil shortage during the 1970s, every single shortage was caused by government mismanagement or price controls. The situation in the Southeast is no different. Will people ever learn? Governments cause shortages, not capitalists.
