I am with you there. I've hauled water, bathed in a cattle trough, and hand watered crops.
I'm shaking my head right along with you.
But responding to Night's argument, that water from the ground being sold back to everyone, who is going to pay for the infrastructure, the purification, the workers, and so on? How Does Anyone Have Right To Make Other People Work To Serve Them?!?

Tell the Tampa City Utilities that "water is a human right", as they shut your water off. Go picket out there in protest at their payment center. Expect to show your papers if you do!
I disagree that it is unheard of. Back a few decades ago big businesses were selling this stuff everywhere. I remember I could buy a 76 ounce cup at the gas station for 19 cents. It was great. I don't remember the water outrage then. I'm not saying it's unfounded. Just interesting. The only difference is back then they added a bunch of sugar to it and called it soda.
And there is no link to Flint, apart from Nestle getting more fresh water and Flint still having water that's unsafe to drink..
