Fargo's Magic Water

Fargo’s Magic Water

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Fargo Diversion Authority distorted the 2009 flood event at Fargo, ND with a “non-official” EOE (Expert Opinion Elicitation) to overstate impacts, increase the Cost Benefit Ratio and downgrade previous historic flood events and flood protection in pursuit of a $2 billion plus boondoggle.

Fargo’s leaders have created a conflict of interest making Moorhead’s continued participation an unethical abuse of power that serves no legitimate Minnesota interest. The expanded plan does nothing for Minnesota and actually disadvantages Moorhead by subsidizing Fargo development into the flood plain south of the Metro.

The fact is the location of the diversion alignment with the dam, ditch and levee does not increase the protection of the currently developed area of Fargo vs. more conservative and less expansive flood control plans. The location only gives the city more area to grow without FEMA flood plain regulations.

When

When “Leaders” Begin Believing Their Own Lies

When Fargo/Cass “leaders” begin believing their own lies and try to establish a means to obtain or justify certain actions to project false accusations, information, etc., for the sole purpose of maintaining a self-created illusion – how can the average person feel their best interests are truly at heart?

At no time, has the Diversion Authority been willing to discuss with either group, alternatives that would achieve flood control for Fargo and reduce impacts for those upstream. Whether directed by the Army Corps, or by their own attorneys, their practice of stonewalling those who are being hurt is at best unproductive, and at worst, unethical.

Cronyism or Just Plain Cuckoo?

Cronyism or Just Plain Cuckoo?

When people, such as Darrell Vanyo, become drunk with their power – they begin to believe they are un-accountable to the people, yet profess they are serving the people by providing preferential treatment to one set of people over another. The mere fact that these imbeciles attempt to justify the rightness of their cause is based in the numbers they represent is a fundamental character flaw.

Who needs a pipeline to move oil field benefits from the west? Fargo diversion backers have concocted a scheme to turn the state’s oil and agriculture bounty into a giant ATM machine.

There's a NEW COWARD in Town

There’s a NEW COWARD in Town

This is nothing new. This is what we have come to expect from the cowards that are trying to control what you are “allowed” to know about the FM Diversion…, When it comes flooding, natural flood plain development and a pro-diversion message, the alleged private citizen, Fargo leaders and the Diversion Authority are realizing that the horses have long since left barn and they are naive enough think that locking the door “now” will do them any good.

Dark Art of Conjuring, Aquaphobia and Other Useless Lies

Dark Art of Conjuring, Aquaphobia and Other Useless Lies

One cannot persist with these lies about farmland tiling increasing water and then turn around and claim that if these farmers held onto “their water” that retention wouldn’t work. If it is frozen, then the farmer is not to blame for natural run-off…, yet if the ground is not frozen the drains, ditches, coulees cannot carry the water any faster than gravity will allow.

Fargo Diversion Authority leaders claim opposition to their wealth transfer scheme is being orchestrated by a couple of counties that are “insignificantly inconvenienced”. The Diversion Authority’s attacks on the JPA and upstream residents are a sideshow. The JPA is defending the rights of its constituents, and is a model for what government should do.
