But the remakes work!

"Xe" and other military contractors are taking over "security operations" in Iraq so Obama can claim to be withdrawing the troops. Not only are contractors replacing these soldiers (who are going to Afghanistan and perhaps Pakistan instead of home), but they are using about 40% more mercenaries than the soldiers being replaced. Blackwater's name is mud, but Xe sounds spiffy, new, and vaguely Chinese.

I suspect that many of these figures vary so widely that its impossible to show on a chart like this.

Since my wife and I haul our water to our rural cabin (with composting toilet), I can tell you that our direct use of water is FAR lower than one would expect from this chart. We work at home, and spend most of our time here, and its still FAR lower. Like our dishes take less than a gallon a day and showers only take about 3 gallons each, this is sometimes rainwater or melted snow too.

Likewise, we prefer free range or free grazing meat or better yet wild game when we can get some. Grass fed pastured cattle would take a lot less water than the corn fed ones.
