    At least that's what's being said there on The Tweeter.

    100,000+ people in Detroit have had their water shut off for non-payment. No word on how many of those people have had their cable TV cut off for the same reason.

    Also, they say that "children in Detroit are going to bed thirsty tonight." I'll take my scotch neat, thank you.

    Mark Ruffalo led a demonstration of some sort and gave a fiery water rights speech. The UN weighed in, saying this is a human rights violation. (Referring to the the water shutoffs - and not Ruffalo's speech, as some seemed to believe at first.)

    Somehow there is a necessary connection between turning the water back on and taxing Wall Street more. I'm sure there is, and these two dudes in tights could probably explain it in more detail:

    I think the two fine gentleman there each need to be handed a shovel and perhaps a pick and there after be placed in the well digging brigade. I'd bet they haven't worked an honest days labor in their pitiful little lives. Of course, they are most likely on the payroll of George Soros or some other buffoon.

    They are called "Hunks for a Cause," "Robin Hunks." Funny, they don't look all that hunky.

    I bet that a lot of the water shut offs occurred in illegally occupied, abandoned houses and apartment buildings that were ruled unfit for habitation. Lets look at both sides of this story before jumping to conclusions. I am no fan of the Koch Brothers and all their disgusting influence over our political process but lets look into this story more closely and really find out why these water shut offs occurred and whether or not the affected properties were suitable for human occupancy. These EXTREMIST LIBERAL HENS need to understand that Detroit is in probably its worst urban crises and that it is bankrupt thanks to the monopoly rule of the corrupt, incompetent democratic party whom they blindly support all the time.

    I think we'll also find that there were not indeed 100,000+ water shut offs - rather that those people merely received warning notices that they were behind on payments.

    Well if the landlords and their tenants were given fair warning and never made any effort to pay up their past due water bills, than the water shut offs are fully justified. The people who work for the city of Detroit's water utility obviously don't work for free. But some of the EXTREMIST LIBERAL HENS on here will find something petty to gripe about regardless of the situation.
