Dangerous When Wet

Useless Nations at it again.

Recognizes the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full  enjoyment of life and all human rights.

Declares the City of Detroit to be in violation... Again.

64,769 delinquent residential customers owe the city’s water department a combined $48.9 million.  The city started sending out shut-off warnings May 11.  The City of Detroit began shutting off water access to residents behind on payments Tuesday, with thousands at risk of losing access.

Last year U.N. officials Catarina de Albuquerque and Leilani Farha declared “Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay due to lack of means constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other international human rights,”

To paraphrase an old saying:

Your rights end where my wallet begins.

So by all means, get out your checkbook Catrina.
