flynn80: Alonjar: What people don't seem to realize is that you have to pay for this anyhow, money doesnt just magically appear from nowhere. Whether you pay it now on your water bill, or the water company raises your rates next cycle to make up for the loss, it WILL come out of your own pocket... Because it has to come from somewhere, and the only place a water company gets its money, is from you.

So.. How about people stop being a nation of retarded sheep requiring that the powers that be pull the wool over your eyes and play numbers games to hide these truths from you, and you just accept that the situation sucks and move forward?

You have no other option.

Without an Auditing of the Federal Reserve the money IS coming from nowhere and being sold as a debt with interest placing the populous in perpetual debt slavery because there is never enough physical money in the system to pay the debt.  The other option is a public utility free from interest but then the Powers that be can't take a mafia like cut of all the action, which why every individual or nation that tries to do that gets executed, assassinated, or invaded, even though it should be the other way around.  Any Nation that is running a central banking scam should be destroyed and they sell out leaders tarred and feathered.


Oh, dear. You drank the polluted water, didn't you?

Your neighbor is lying to you.  A 10'x10' pool 6' meters deep is about 4500 gallons.  Is your neighbors pool that small?

Yah. It's one of those 3.5 ft Wal Mart pools with the inflatable rim and we partially filled it with rainwater we had diverted off of his roof in the spring.

Who the hell has A six meter deep pool In their yard? .


shiat at 6 meters I would be worried about what is lurking in my pool where I couldn't see...

That's only 3.2808399 fathoms. Sounds about right


Sure if you consider the original pool as a rectangle or square. What if it's an inverted pyramid with just the center point 6 meters?

I can sort of understand why a lot of these places are so anti-government, given that they keep voting in self-serving a-holes who are clearly anti-populace...

This is West Virgina. Look at the make up of their state government. I5 has been a Democrat majority flr close to 100 years. They are not anti government.


And if they are like Kentucky Democrats they aren't Democrats either.

No. The loss is caused by Freedom Industries. They must pay. Why would the people pay for damages caused by Freedom Industries?


IIRC, Freedom Industries filed for bankruptcy, so they won't have to pay anything.

Y'know, I bet some of the writers of the previous century would have a field day with this sort of thing.  Shame that nobody really reads books anymore.  Maybe if Upton Sinclair wrote for a reality TV show...

cretinbob: SwiftFox: Lee Jackson Beauregard: the_cnidarian: Water is not a constitutionally protected right.

#include <amendment-ix.h>

The Ninth Amendment doesn't grant or confer any rights. It simply notes that some other unspecified rights besides those noted in the constitution might exist.

Amendment 14

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


How does that not apply to gay dudes or lesbian ladies?

Bungles: You have to let the natural crazies free market take care of it. Mass mail-out the home address and schedules of the company directors and their families to everyone in the state.

The system of releasing dangerously unhinged people into the community since the 80s will take care of the problem.




The dismantling of the mental health facilities started in the late 50's early 60's. It was done because of one hospital being horribly run gaining a whole lot of press. Conservatives jumped on it to cut budgets, liberals embraced it saying that the halfway houses were more humane.

The closing of the final facilities in the 80s were part of a much linger trend of stupidity in America.

8 or 12' diameter (4' deep) circular pools are fairly common because they're cheap.  Those are both under 3600 gallons.


That's not a pool.  That's a horse trough.
