UTAH WON'T LET CITIZENS COLLECT WATER WITHOUT 'STANDARDIZED CONTAINER' AND REGISTRATION

INFORMATION LIBERATION - To legally collect rainwater [in Utah] you must register with the state and buy a "standardized container." The government for decades has "owned the water rights" and deemed collection of rainwater a criminal offense. "The bill requires would-be harvesters to register online with the state and supply information about how much is to be collected and the collection point." reports Deseret News.

How about breathing without a state permission slip? or going to the bathroom without a hall pass? It's ok only if you have ten wives and a Donnie and Marie poster...
