Comments: Dipping Toes in the Fever Swamps of the Left
In summary, Flint's environmental regulators were asleep at the wheel, but nobody wanted to call them out, because bad things happen to people who criticize the government. The horribly mismanaged water system was the result of government planning born of economic ignorance. So far, relief has come in the form of private corporations donating millions of bottles of water.

Has there ever been a more compelling case for privatization of publicly-run government services?

No TS'er will stop you from venting... far from it.

> Republicans: mean. We got it.

Oh, no, you haven't yet, as a storm is coming in terms of sexist pigs who'd never vote for a woman... and besides we (speaking broadly) have poopy-pants pulled up over our doodey/heads. To share my point of order, I save my powder for when your brother actually writes something... ignore any memes than can't be clearly disproven with a sentence or two, or better yet; a simple graph.

MY vent would be against CO's Health Co-Op who was my 'health' insurance provider until they were decertified by the DOI. I expected this as some 21-23 others have gone the same way, but I didn't expect the butt-kissing screed I got from the Board President, Chuck Holum, titled "Putting People before Profits."

It featured the predictable dig at unnamed Big Companies, as well as Cory Garder (without saying how he didn't help) and kudos to Dems Bennet, Perlmutter, DeGette (w/o saying how they helped), and OF COURSE, zero explanation of why they couldn't make a profit, nor why they even should. Sheesh, what a butt-kissing exercise at the experience of the taxpayers!

I've already got my powder dry for Bernie's "Healthcare is a Right" with

I teach my kids that every right comes with a responsibility. If healthcare becomes a right, what responsibilities will be placed on us by the IPAB (aka, the death panel)?
