Progressives Rally in Detroit – Demand Free Water, “Where Do You Expect Us to S***??”
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 7-19-2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/21/2014 3:41:13 AM PDT by servo1969

A prominent sign at the Detroit water protest...
"Where do you expect us to sh**?"
where shit

Detroit liberals marched to demand free water on Friday.
The leftists don’t believe they should have to pay for it.
It’s not their responsibility.

Hollywood liberal Mark Ruffalo joined the protesters to demand free water as did many attendees from Netroots Nation.

If the city was to provide “free” water the citizens would still pay for it through higher taxes - and there would be a lot more water waste.

Why the protesters offer to pay for it. After all, the facilities to deliver water and keep it safe aren't free. Someone has to pay for all of this. Why don't they offer?

I know why. Liberals want others to pay for their generosity.

What does free water have to do with ferals who crap in the city park, behind the liquor store, and in the gutter?

It doesn’t help that nutroots was in town adding stupidity over the weekend.

Some idiot on twitter posted a picture of them watering the grass at Comerica park and complaining about them watering Ford field while people go without.

I pointed out his error that it wasn’t Ford field but Comerica park and they pay their bills. Then he complained about diverting water away from the poor to the rich in the middle of a drought. I pointed out that Michigan is experiencing above average rainfall for the second year in a row.

I would be okay paying for the water if we could put something in the water that kept liberals (any race) from breeding.

Detroit had the highest median income in the world before liberals took over. Progressive sounds good but it is anything but progressive.

LOL They actually believe we get “free” water elsewhere.

My water is free as long as I continue to pay my electric bill, keep my pump and plumbing in good working order.

Higher taxes from whom?

There is NO tax base there. Little or no employment. The city is dying.

And the liberals still dont see it, still demand the VERY SAME path of death-continuation.

Such is the future of an immoral people.

It is also hard to believe that Detroit is located in the Middle of the largest system of Fresh water lakes in the world.It sounds like Milton Friedman’s remark about the government running the Sahara.

I hear the roar.

“Give ME more!!!”

Pray for Christian revival in this country.

I heard a good analogy. We are in the flower vase stage of things. Our country was planted in freedom and individuality and on a belief in God/Jesus as the grantor of our rights. Those are our roots as a people.

We have blossomed beautifully. And now, those blossoms have been cut, placed in a pretty vase, OH, how pretty they are. Yet they are wilting, they have no roots, no hope at all without them.

ONLY by somehow restoring the roots, will those blossoms not fade further and die.

Pray for this nation.

“Where did all of these retards come from?”

For starters, from the 60’s and then unfettered immigration...legal as well as illegal.

The scarey part is that Socialism is spreading like a virus.

Not sure about that

There was a time in my life, where, I had no job,
and survived by the nickel for a soda can law.
One day, I could not pay my water bill. It was the law, no running water in the house, it is,
therefore, condemned property.

These fools, that are protesting, and the other
fools that they think they represent, must really
be throwbacks to neandert’als.

There has been no such thing as free water,
since the installation of indoor plumbing.

You can't contain it. You have to actively fight it and the only reason any of this is going on is because the Michigan GOP is fighting it. I just wish other states would quit kicking the can down the road about their cities.

Few of the netroots clowns are even from Detroit and know nothing about the issue. The only reason they're going through this round of shutoffs is because they're trying to eliminate some of the debt to attract more private investors which is a good thing. In most cases, private can legally compete with municipal services.

Detroit is just the beginning.

The libs had 50 years to trash Detroit and they did a splendid job. I’m surprised it took this long.

Now it appears they have run out of OPM (other people’s money) and the big hurt is slapping them down.

It’s always been just a matter of time. The time is now and the vultures have come home to roost.

I don’t think it’s too early to write/call your congresscritters demanding they vote no on any FedGov bail-out of the Motor City.

In other words, the protesters demand the slavery without pay of all Waterworks and sewerage employees and legalized theft of all materials needed to distribute the water/collect the sewerage to serve their desires and bodily functions.

That certainly fits for Detroit, but not all of Michigan. Michigan is not Detroit. Republicans control both state houses right now, and we have a Republican Governor. If we could lop off Detroit and Flint, Michigan would go red in every election.
