Michael Moore on the Flint water situation

See his post here for the details. This is what you get when business replaces democracy. The bullet points follow:

1. While the Children in Flint Were Given Poisoned Water to Drink, General Motors Was Given a Special Hookup to the Clean Water.
2. For Just $100 a Day, This Crisis Could’ve Been Prevented.
3. There’s More Than the Lead in Flint’s Water.
4. People’s Homes in Flint Are Now Worth Nothing Because They Cant Be Sold.
5. While They Were Being Poisoned, They Were Also Being Bombed.

6. The Wife of the Governor’s Chief of Staff Is a Spokeswoman for Nestle, Michigan’s Largest Owner of Private Water Reserves.
7. In Michigan, from Flint water, to Crime and Murder, to GM Ignition Switches, It’s a Culture of Death.
8. Don’t Call It “Detroit Water” — It’s the Largest Source of Fresh Drinking Water in the World.
9. ALL the Children Have Been Exposed, As Have All the Adults, Including Me.
10. This Was Done, Like So Many Things These Days, So the Rich Could Get a Big Tax Break.
