Only a few miles away from Flint, Michigan where the government is poisoning the communities water to save a few bucks it sells water for only $200! Residents are furious, and rightly so. Dec. 3rd deadline to speak out.

Deb Muchmore, the head spokesperson for Nestlé Michigan, is married to Governor Snyder’s former chief of staff. Perhaps we should stop wondering why Nestlé keeps getting so much from the state government for so little.

Oh by the way this is a PETITION to this story ---------

PLEASE SIGN PETITION I FORGOT TO ADD THAT........

If they gave them the water from Flint it would help Flint restore the pipes and solve their problems sooner than later. If Nesle is given such a large gift they should be responsible for cleaning the water before using it. That's a pretty cheap drink they are receiving at taxpayer expense.
I am sick of regressive's running and ruining this country that I love.

Boycott Nestle products, especially during the holiday season. Besides, maybe Nestle products contain lead too.

Nestle is a despicable company and the Michigan governor only has his own best interest at heart. Boycott Nestle and let them know why!

Correct Julie hasn't changed over time and because people support the deplorable company they get to stay in business. Too many people are unaware of what is going on and don't expect lamestream media to let any people know.

How the Corporate one's who KNOW what they are doing sleep at night, but I suppose they sleep well not a bit of guilt over who they hurt to live in their fine homes and have a full bank account.

Thanks Beryl for the additional links - I'll send another quick "how to" on the hyperlinks.

Well Hartson I "get" in a roundabout way what you are trying to convey, however all that would do would hurt people outside of the Flint area. I will not buy bottled water, but then my water compared to many is good. There are people who now must depend on buying water because of drought, their wells poisoned with fracking, so more people dependent upon water from elsewhere. A tragedy all around.

And on that vein, perhaps David the chemicals and toxins in our foods has too many people with too few brain cells to think with clarity anymore.

I would suspect if one traced who gave approval to this sweetheart of a deal you'd find they most likely have stock in the company or they got a good kickback to do so.

We have the crookedest Republican governor and legislature in the country; and I didn't vote for any of them. They gerrymaqndered the state so much it is nearly impossible to have a Democrat get voted in.

Somehow this gerrymandering needs to go. We need a lot of Election Reforms but that is an uphill battle.

FYI, we, the people of Michigan get no choice in what this crooked band of crooks do. We didn't even know about Nestle until recently, as we have been signing petitions against them. Didn't know the Gov. was related to them. They are a bunch of crooks that we are stuck with, we were always a Dem state until the Tbaggers came along and took it over, and got this snake for a governor. They are recounting vote here now, as we don't believe Trump got the vote. He gets booed every time he comes here.

Yes, I saw the petition and signed it too, signed several of these, but this band of crooks don't care what we do or don't want, they just run roughshod over us and we are even the most gerrymandered state in the country. I've asked for investigations, etc., but nothing gets done for the people who live here, as you can tell with the situation with Flint. The Feds sent several billion dollars to help, and the governor pockets the money and hasn't given a cent of it to Flint. The entire bunch belong in jail, but even the judges here are Rs and ignore it all.

If the Fed's sent money to the State they should be assure that it is being properly used. Nobody seems to want to hold anyone accountable for anything anymore. Yet let a poor person steal a pair of shoes because theirs is full of holes and worn and they end up doing time in prison.
