  1. I just looked up my water rates and this is at most $2 worth of water. More likely 40 cents at the high use rate. And this is what the psychopaths in power get all upset about? Thank God I don’t live in that cesspool.

    “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. ” ~(paraphrased: Page 406 of Ayn Rand’s, Atlas Shrugged )
