This proves that which I have said about that city for a very long time.
The water department states that there are about 60,000 delinquent accounts in the city of Detroit – with the average arrearage about $560.
City of Detroit Water And Sewerage Department Deputy Director, Darryl Latimer, said every account corporate or private is treated the same, adding that the water department does what they can to work with those who come forward and address their hardship situation.
“The majority of our customers (who) are in delinquency status, they just built a culture of ,’You’re not making me pay— I am not going to pay’,” said Latimer.
While this report did not come right out and say it; this is the classic cultural marxist mentality of the left — that somehow or another water service from the city of Detroit is an entitlement and that the people of the City of Detroit have a right to the water. The marxists also portray the city of Detroit as evil, greedy capitalists for demanding that the service of delivering clean and filtered water to the citizens of Detroit be paid for by the people who receive it.
Sorry, but the water that comes from the City of Detroit is not a right; it is a service which you pay for; any middle class person and below knows this; at least those who are sane and pay their bills.
I have to wonder; what would the union workers who are employed by the Detroit water and sewage department, think of these people who want their water for free? I bet they would not have anything good to say about it. My question to the union members is this: Why are you not speaking out about this and bringing up how absurd it is? I mean, if everyone gets free water; who pays the salary of those who work at the Water and Sewage plant? Who pays for the maintenance on the filtration system? Who pays for the maintenance on the water pipes in the city? The list of questions goes on and on…
This is why I happen to believe that these cultural marxists do not live in the same reality that the majority of the rest of America. They live in this false sense of utopia and it is sadly out of reach with the realities of this modern-day. These people do not need to be calling the U.N., they need to be calling the men in the white coats. Because quite frankly, they are crazy!
