Wanna See Something Messed Up?

Yeah, so, I'm going to bring up environmentalism topics sometimes, because I don't want to die. Here's one:

I had to.

We're also gonna have some more socialism. Um, the commodification of water is MESSED UP. Seriously, this is where your free market capitalism leads. Big corporations going into communities, sucking all the water out of their lakes and streams and rivers, and then selling it back to them. And it's all legal. Nobody can stop them from doing this.

Also, in a lot of places, including Seattle, tap water is cleaner and safer than most bottled water, since it's better regulated. Haha.

So, if you can, avoid buying bottled water. These companies are ripping you off and making drought-ridden communities worse.

And yet the water subsidies to our farms have been cut off, creating vast stretches of nasty dirt fields and reducing our agricultural output (and economic strength). But selling our municipal water while telling people not to even water the vegetable gardens in their yards is totally okay. (Seriously, the water company advised me of this because my usage was 50 gallons up from last summer.)
