    1. some farmers will get water, and others will not, simply based on when their land was first irrigated.

      This is not fair because farmers weren't told before hand, and so some farmers are lucky while others are not. The situation in which the farmers are in is very perilous, and people with the most water will be able to make the most profit. That will mean that there will be a shortage of fruits and vegetables in the states and it is bad.

    2. Taking that water and dividing it up some other way, he says, would be like taking everyone's paycheck, putting it into a pool, and saying: "We're going to divide that up evenly. Even though you went to school as a doctor for eight or 10 years, and you're making a lot more money than the guy who's driving a school bus, let's take all the money and divide it up evenly."

      People with greater education will not be different compared to others when it comes to salary. If one farmer has lots of water because he is responsible and resourceful, while some other farmer has little water because he is lazy, ultimately both will have the same amount of water. It is unfair for resourceful farmers, and thus shows that you do not have to work hard to gather water because everyone will eventually have the same amount of water.
