What's your plan to take it over?
Hire these guys?
They don't really care. Most would call for a return of slavery.
C'mon DK, I'm trying to find a little more good news here.
It is pretty rare, so yep, I gotta stretch things a little........:)
Here, try this then, althuogh I gotta wonder about the porta potties next to it.
Pandering to the politicians is going to get you what you have right now.
Their water is not going to get turned off, they arent putting their necks out for things that dont affect em. They are politicians, creatures of opportunity and the desire to be famous/important.
Politics; show business for the ugly.
Why keep pandering to them instead of just take it over? Clearly the ones who are being pandered to dont care or dont have the stones to do anything, or it would have changed, right? Has a single politician gone to jail over this, for protesting and being too crazy? I doubt it.
Public servants who are not willing to sacrifice their jobs to make a point are worthless.
more oil spills
This brand of propaganda of theirs is blowing up in their faces - the insane steaming piles of crap.
As a punctuation mark.
Cool - works for me. So - Bump-edge? Gotta get back down to doing business.
Definitely must be a "public utility".
Gotta keep the pressure on the right wing, extremist, conservative libertarians who worship privatization.
And we must support all progressive efforts to prevent that grab.
It's the only way.
Changed some minds there? Hah - not likely - more like - if anything - just made them consider a new candidate that was not gonna let the cat out of the bag in front of the public ( earning rightful public derision ) - in the on-going attempt to continue to flush the public at large down the toilet.
Basically we have a handful of politicians that are fucking it up for everyone, as usual.
So why do we keep electing them? Why do we keep humoring them?
Ain't propaganda wonderful?
As previously stated, concrete plans are not going to be found, as running a water company is not something that can be learned in a day by one person.
But together, as communities, there is no reason it cannot be. It is already technically owned by the public- yes, that is a lie by the politicians, but it gives some acceptance of this concept- so its really not a matter of figuring it out.
We are not at a shortage of people able to figure things out in this country. We are at a shortage of action. Go to the gates, get in, and occupy it. The people working there dont want to shut it off on people, the people in the field dont want it either.
Chances are, the entire operation is basically composed of hard working people, who dont want to turn the water off on their neighbors. But they will, because otherwise they are disobeying whoever is currently in charge, and therefore will lose their job.
But not if the people occupy the facility. This isn't hard, but it is radical. The question is, are we at the point where we are willing to do this? Its the only option at this point if you dont want it privatized.
Hey, it's not a flame war thread, it get's bumped!
Perhaps the extended drought in the land of teabagge(R)y has changed some minds there too.
Repubs are expected to block all efforts to tax the rich.
They WILL get theirs.
Gosh, you never did talk about your plan to take over the system.
In fact you had no comment when I told of the plan for privatization when the tyranny in Michigan first took hold.
You didn't say much about that either.
So, c'mon as a late comer, what's your plan?
False - they have got some idiot trying to run for the Governor's Office here in Mn - who's only campaign commercial so far has been about stopping the obamacare bailouts - BAIL-OUTS fer gods sake - the insane bastards.
Referendums/direct voting on issues can help
You have no idea, just how insane.
I found this while searching for info on Egypt.
Libe(R)topians are everywhere, these days.
Fucking up people and the planet for profit.
When the state is using military weapons against the people on a regular basis, and the people are told their only other option is to privatize in the hands of the very same people, there is only one solution:
Step up and start leading. If they don't that water will be wholly owned privately by the end of the year.
Lord knows we all need some positive news.
let's not forget.
my fukin god! Where do you get this stuff? The whole world is insane . . . or at least as nuts as the fukers running around here citing people like pukecannon . . .
That's the most unlikely scenario.
That's reality setting in.

Talkin to YOU!
