It's some kind of ism to eat pizza in front of pimple faced kids. In today's world that's just the way it is. Bunch of spineless _______________
"Not that I condone fascism, or any -ism for that matter. -Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.' Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people.

Oh, what's that you say?

You refused to make paying your bills a priority and now you are without water?

Please take a number and step through here:

back in my younger days anybody who lived on a farm had free water. I didn't know of a farm that hadn't drilled its own well and laid the pipe. when I first started working on the place after college dad sent me to water school to be licensed to chlorinate water since we had over 25 houses on the line. I think over 15 you had to license back then. then one day all that changed. we got tired of handling the land our cousins had and scaled down to just our land. the water system was given for free to the man who had several water systems in the area so he could handle it. none of the people on the line would pay their bill. it had always been free and now it was $5 a month. it wasn't that they couldn't pay it. it was they refused to pay for something that had been free for so long.

I get the premise behind water being as basic a need as there is, but in an industrialized society water has to be pumped in and processed, sewage treated, etc.  You could cover this cost on municipal taxes but then you'd have the idiots who just wantonly waste water and jack taxes up for everyone.  I'd rather just have to cover my own usage.

I think the difference here is these people aren't protesting because of a heartfelt belief that all people should get free water, its that they've welched on their bills and subsequently gone this route.  Move to Alaska, or even rural parts of Kentucky.  You can make it happen without the water company.
