Why do any of us pay a water bill if such a "human right"? I guess we should all just stopRead More paying our water bill.
Kerry Zielinski July 24, 2014 at 09:47 pm
The water is not what costs the major money. It is the entire system to clean and send it to us.Read More The system is costly to maintain. It is old and people aren't help pay to keep it viable. Sure water is great for ALL of us to have, but the issue is why should some people pay that can barely afford it and others cheat. It makes cheating ok. It is never ok.
Kerry Zielinski July 24, 2014 at 10:00 pm
The Detroit Water Department is trying to get people to pay for the system - not just the water. ItRead More needs to collect money to pay for the costs to maintain and run it. The water is the cost element they use to charge people. The more you use, the more it costs you. The entire water system with the pipes, valves, water purification and the testing all is a city service. It costs money to run the system. We are paying for the system. The Detroit water system is old and needs constant care. People need to pay their bills so the system is taken care of so it IS available to all of us. Allowing some people to cheat the system and not pay for the service is cheating those that DO pay and then have to pay MORE than their fair share to keep the system working. Folks Detroit went bankrupt for a reason. Poor finances. Not collecting taxes, for tickets, for water, for most everything they are supposed to get money for. Sorry it costs money - but it does. Cheating the good residents of Detroit is wrong. Pay for your services.

Jamie, I don't believe the Koch brothers have any responsibility for the fact that UNIONS haveRead More always been granted Preferred status, and Privileges, by our Career Pols, who want the UNION $$$ and have done everything possible to get that MONEY, with no 'limitation' whatsoever! When these Corrupt Career Pols in congress (Both parties, btw) make so-called "Campaign Finance" laws, it is NEVER to help "We the People" get better representation, but only to protect themselves!------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------That is because the Priority of these Corrupt Career Pols (most of the congressmen & women!) is their own Re-elections, NOT what is best for all Americans!!!----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These Corrupt Career Pols are RULING OVER us, instead of working FOR US, as they are supposed to, sadly, for us ordinary "Country Class," and our Nation's Future, as opposed to congress, and the current occupant of the WH. These "Ruling Class Elites" consider us, who PAY their salaries and benefits, to be little more than collateral damage, or commoners who are not smart enough to make our own decisions--instead thinking we need Government to tell us what we can and cannot do!
Dale Behler July 24, 2014 at 10:07 pm
MAC....I agree. Being a member of the elite ruling class means lots of power, money and benefits.Read More So retaining that lucrative lifestyle becomes the primary motivation for their efforts. The people who elected them and the good of the country are of secondary importance. As they and the current POTUS have shown us, keeping the personal power, money and luxury PERKS of a politician is their main motivation. That evaluation of politicians may sound pessimistic, but I feel it is reality.

REF July 24, 2014 at 09:33 pm
$600 to water a lawn. Obviously much more important than a child getting a glass of clean water.Read More The child's parents are, of course, all terrible people, unlike wonderful green-lawn-guy. It IS racist to assume that "those people" just don't want to pay their water bill 'cause that's how "they" are. Unless you personally know every single one of them, you have NO right to make such a judgement.

REF, I purposely didn't respond to John, who bases his posts on his ethnocentric way of thought.Read More There are people who see a problem and try to be part of the solution, and then there are those who are blinded by their own egos, who will never understand what really is important in life, and will always be part of the problem. You summed it up perfectly when you said "$600 to water a lawn. Obviously much more important than a child getting a glass of clean water.......". Just think of the progress that could be made if someone who can afford to pay that much to water their lawn, could just take a small percentage of that amount to buy a few bottles of water for people in need, but the Johns of the world aren't about solutions, empathy or compassion because they are too busy insulting and trying to make themselves feel bigger and better then the next person. Man's inhumanity to man!
