• No, I am challenging Ramona's claims, the chronology is set and documented. The KWA demand email for FCG public approval of the switch to KWA water was reported about a week ago and there is too much information coming out too quickly for me to retain and link to any of it, good luck finding it...

    • Careful - Rubiotics is contagious ;-)

    • Here is video of the 2013 city council meeting pointing out that the council never agreed to using Flint River water.

    • Bernie Sanders voted for the onerous 1994 Crime bill. He is the only Presidential candidate who voted for the bill. Cara McClure ignores that fact in her "letter"....

    • You are not really challenging Ramona in regards to claims but the chronology set forth in the Bridge article provided by flowerchild. Do you have a link that could help illuminate the conditions set forth by KWA that you are referring to?

      By the way, the word is Democratic not Democrat...

    • Your claims about the Emergency Manager law are bogus as are much of the other claims in your post. One important fact missing from this timeline is that the head of the KWA required in writing the democratically voted approval of the Flint city government before any contract would be signed no...

    • Just trying to KEEP IT INTERESTING. Assuming most of the folks here are over the Ritalin/ADD stage.

      Never was much for Twitter - used to devour 1000+ page books, so these are like smoke puffs.

    • Probably right. I think the reference to early politics was in one of the internal links. This is a travel day and I probably will not be back again today to respond but I am, as usual, interested in following the debates here at Dag.

    • Very gracious of you, Hal.  Thank you.  I should tell you, though, I used Boehlert's article to prove a point in a comment battle a few minutes ago and, boy, did I piss that person troll off!  That was fun!  And all thanks to you, since I hadn't seen it before.

    • Peracles, I agree with your analysis. And I have been consistent in my throwing Kasich's hat into the ring  from the inception of these discussions about the Republican side.

      Not being learned in these matters, I have been touting Kasich not because I like him but because, even with...

    • Stuck in a hospital room with a  MRSA I was reading Jobs' Biography.

      The specialist  noticed it and said his son worked at Apple. He got on the elevator one day and Jobs got on too. And immediately got into an argument with one of the other riders, when the door opened ,said "You're...

    • I was trying to fix a communication system at a remote location. .It had been struck by lightening.

      I hired a retired specialist in systems like that. .He started by painting the exterior of the equipment shed,,putting in better lights,and  other things that didn't seem to me to be on...

    • I think Ramona made good points about the media's undue focus on irrelevancies like whether Clinton "shouts".  Bernie shouts all the time.  Is sexism at work?  Quite possibly.  On the other hand, the corporate media would prefer to avoid focusing on the differences between the "pragmatist's" and...

    • I expect Rubio's dead-man walking at this point. It's hard to weird-out the populace with a programming glitch and get past the obvious - he's dismal under pressure and has no experience either. I predict (grain of salt: I thought NH would tighten on the Dem side) he'll nose-dive in South...

    • Answered above.

      BTW, Hillary is ahead by 2 delegates with only 4 left to commit, so despite the popular vote, Hillary's now ahead by 10 convention delegates.  (Iowa: Hillary 29, Bernie 21, 2 to commit;...
