How many times each day do we go to the water tap, run cold water, fill a glass, and then quench our thirst? I drink about 4 litres of water every day, about 16 cups. Do I even think about whether the water is fit to drink? But what happens when ...

At best Governor Rick Snyder is going to throw the unelected emergency manager he appointed under the train to save his own skin. That poor sock puppet of course can't afford the lawyers Governor Snyder, backed by the GOP, can and will get the blame heaped on top of him. He'll disappear, perhaps even behind bars, and then the situation is still as it was: lead from the corroded pipes continuing to poison the population of Flint, with the exception of the happy few who can afford to buy bottled water to drink and cook with. And the mayor will have to find 2 billion to put in a new water system, which of cause he can't. Fat chance Governor Snyder is coming up with that amount of money, which is far more than he saved on hid budget to begin with.

Sickening, it's absolutely sickening what has allowed to happen here, and the people of Flint are the ones who are the ones who are going to be the most sick of all.

GOP thinking. Polluted river water, though filled with toxic chemical cocktails, doesn't count as poison to them, because climate change hoax. Lead counts as poison to everyone, but the lead wasn't in the water from the river. It entered the water from the water system piped, due to the aforesaid "non-poisonous" toxic chemical cocktail dissolving it. How could the poor city manager have known about this in advance? He wasn't a chemist. Yeah, right. Not that, I suppose, it would have mattered. I would have been in his political interest to keep black citizens at least mentally afflicted, if not dead. This is another example of why, although I love my bumper sticker that says "People with guns kill more than people without guns," I have some doubt about its literal truth. Don't tell the NRA I said so.

Funny, I assumed Snyder to be a Republican!

In any case the move to Flint Rivr Water was unconscionable!

Well, okay, if the piping system needs to be replace, let's see the GOPigs put out the money for the "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs! that they have been so quick, in the past, to claim they are in favor of creating!

That's austerity for you! I'm so glad to see this matter getting the attention it deserves at last. I already posted and signed the Michael Moore petition. The more we can get this out, the better. This is a great collection of videos. Thanks Lynn.

Already signed the article via Judy's article. Have been watching Rachel Maddow on TV and she has done lots of coverage on this, to her credit.

People's heads need to roll, these people need clean water NOW, where is FEMA, something of a massive movement to get them water. These children will need long term funding for education as all the children will now have life long impairments. As with the First Responders, they should get lifelong medical care in fact let's go Universal Health Care I'm tired of begging for people to obtain medical coverage anywhere.

AUSTERITY KILLS people......If you didn't believe it before.......believe it.

Best vote for the only Candidate going up against those who are screwing us over and that is Bernie. All of the rest of them are Corporate shills.

Think of these children next time you go vote.

Rick Snyder is making Michigan's previous governor look good. The river in Flint has been poisoned for years and everyone in Michigan knew that. Someone should be prosecuted for endangering public health. I had all ready signed Michael Moore's petition. The State of Michigan is all ready in financial trouble, this debacle will probably bankrupt the state government, causing its citizens even more misery.

As a Michigan resident most of my life, this is the worst governor, legislature and other "officials" that has ever invaded my state. These are all Tbaggers who rode in on the Tbag wave a few years ago. This was a profitable state until the Republicans get a hold of it. Governor Granholm was a great governor, unfortunately because of the long time lousy R governor, they had put term limits on before Granholm got here and there is now a 2 term limit. We would have kept her if we could. The water in that river has been toxic for 100 years and they all knew it was. The Tbag legislature and governor changed so many laws in this state to suit themselves, including to give the governor the authority to Appoint his cronies to kick out the elected officials of of our cities and towns and take them over. They pillaged the towns for all valuables and even took the property tax money from the towns and spent it on things for themselves. I could go on and on, there is so much gone bad for this state under these crooks. I hope they all go to jail.

this is why I bother to read the dull statistical report my city issues every year on water quality - because we need to watch and complain.

"Democrats Cover Up Role of Obama Administration in Flint Water Crisis"
"Both candidates sought to lay blame solely on the Republican governor, Rick Snyder, while concealing the role of state and local Democrats, including the state treasurer, the mayor, the emergency manager and the city council. They also said nothing about federal officials from Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who knowingly concealed the fact that the city was not treating its water supply with anti-corrosive agents and that lead levels in the water had made it toxic."
