Re: A More Measured Analysis Of The Flint Water Crisis

I've certainly drinken well water, but it's never been discolored. The only staining on the sink has been minor "hard water" stains.

Re: A More Measured Analysis Of The Flint Water Crisis

How many times have you drank water in another community or from a well, that looked, smelled, and tasted funny, and stained the fixtures?
In my case? Precisely ZERO times.

Just because you and I learned about her awful decision two or three weeks ago doesn't mean her boss didn't know of it much, much sooner.

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

Looks like the Fed's took care of their issue quickly enough...
They did?!!!!! What planet are you living on? Hedman f*cked up last summer. She was allowed to remain on the job longer than that inept piece of shit, Dan Wyant.

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

It was a 50 minute speech. For him to provide all those details would require two extra hours. He never apologized for his administration's attempt to discredit the Doctor who blew the whistle on lead poisoning. No, but he thanked the individuals who did blow the whistle. He never once said how he f...

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

I am about to say something that will surprise some of you: I thought Snyder said all the right things in his speech tonight regarding Flint. I am 100% convinced that he is ashamed and saddened by what transpired. You could hear it in his voice. I am confident that he will do everything in his power...

This is a highly interesting read, regardless of one's view on Governor Snyder's handling of the Flint disaster: http://www.nationaljournal.com/s/352793/snyder-calls-flint-his-katrina-catastrophic-failure-leadership?mref=mostread_home_1 To the best of my knowledge, this is the first & only detailed ...

Re: Governor Snyder is such a clueless imbecile...

Matt - the MDEQ made the decision not to require anti-corrosives, misled the EPA about it, and lied to the public as to the safety of the water supply. The Flint City Council is not responsible for delivery/administration of government services. That is handled by the executive branch of government....

Re: Governor Snyder is such a clueless imbecile...

And all those hot water heaters prolly got the leaded h2o in them
Indeed.

Melissa Mays during her appearance on Fox 2 last week indicated that she is already on new hot water heater #3 since the changeover occurred.

Re: Governor Snyder is such a clueless imbecile...

The volunteer efforts are encouraging, and Kroger and its employees are to be commended for their donations. Since October, more than 12,000 filters (out of 41,000 households) have been distributed. Good statistic; thank you for sharing that info. The filters need to be changed monthly, do they not?...

Re: Snyder admin. willfully poisons Flint's water customers

I will say the State Department of Health & Human Services has largely gotten a free pass so far, and their actions need to be placed under the microscope.

Governor Snyder is such a clueless imbecile...

So, let's see.... 99,000 people have piss poor, undrinkable water. Many thousands have no source of transportation. Yet, Governor Snide expects these people to walk in the freezing cold & snow to the nearest fire station to pick up water?!!! You've got to be fucking kidding me. Free water should be ...
