    Is water really a human right? I mean, if you don't pay your cell phone bill, they shut it off. If you don't pay your car payment, they repo it. Is water that much different?

    Man, Mark Ruffalo has turned into an ultra-liberal cunt. It's a shame because I think he's a good actor.

    He's alright, I guess. A bit overrated. His best movie was the one where he fucked Julianne Moore's strawberry muff behind her gay lover's back.

    "White people" responsibility. Apparently you don't understand the current state of the world.

    The primary issue is that residents were getting their water shut off, but businesses who owe hundreds of thousands of dollars were not, because the contractor doing the shut offs didn't have the ability to do it

    "Vargo Golf, which owns Palmer Park Golf Course and Chandler Park Golf Course, tops the list, with a delinquent account balance of $437,714. Another Vargo Golf account for a separate property has a delinquent balance of $100,528. The list, available at freep.com, includes an account for the State of Michigan, which owes $70,246."

    OK, I'll probably get shit for this...

    Obviously, clean, running water isn't a "right." If you think it is, then you must also think that food, clothing and shelter is a right. Those things require money and labor to produce and nobody has the right to other people's money or labor unless there's a voluntary exchange.

    That being said, I find it kind of weird that our government is spending billions to feed, clothe and house illegal immigrants that are coming here against the law every day while there are American citizens who are unable to afford for water...which has gone up significantly in Detroit over the past several years.

    Does anybody have the "right" to have running tap water? No. But if we're going to be spending billions taking care of people, I'd like to see actual legal citizens get taken care of first. Besides, it costs tax payers anyway. In some of the homes without running water, the government is coming in and removing the children from families. Those children are then given food, clothing and shelter while in state custody.
