Flint River has a high chloride content, which leaches lead from plumbing materials into drinking water.
It's from their out of date, illegal for everyone else plumbing. I guess exempting government from it's own regulations isn't such a great idea.
The water source is fine other than having an acidic ph level that caused erosion of the antiquated underground plumbing and thus the leaching of lead and rust in to the water, giving it a dirty and yellowish appearance . Incompetent preliminary studies by Flint engineering consultants who were in cahoots with the city should have been aware of this matter when initial studies were done back in 2011. Obviously, these so-called engineering experts persuaded the city council and the emergency manager to make the switch.
maybe there is a bunch of bullet ridden bodies in the river

Ted Cruz Is the answer. Integrity being the question. I stand with Ted.
I want both Trump and Cruz, together they have what America needs for 8 or hopefully 16 years.
But I thought cruz wasn't qualified.???
What about his loans?
What about Goldman sachs?
What about being owned by the banks?
What about how he's not liked?
What about how he's not an "evangelical"?
Boy, this thread looks alot different than the one I was reading this morning. Because in the AM I was a cruzbot, cultist, duped, and uninformed.
Now it's back to being buddies for cruz and trump? Wow. I guess a "poll" came out somewhere and it's time to collaborate again. GFY.
Usfreeman-Not you in particular, just my general sentiment.

With Dan it was always picking and choosing, the progressive slant parroting the democratic points.

I’ve been listening to Rush since the 80″s, can not remember him being wrong, but he has been I’m sure. He is dead on being right this time. Romney Is a progressive. I prefer Dr. Ben Carson who is the ultimate conservative, the more I think about Donald’s past, makes me think he is the ultimate progressive! Glenn was not a Romney fan, but “the-monk” has real insight…
uncle: I voted for Romney for POTUS and in retrospect it was as much of a vote against Obama as for Mitt. Of course Romney would have been better than "O" but he is still a RINO. Like Rush, I have been aware for decades over the old MSM monopoly on the news. When I was a kid, you could watch the "Big Three" and each network was running verbatim coverage. I've realized that since I was 8 years old.
Finally, by the Grace of God, Rush came along and broke the back of the old communist news networks! There, I said it. "Communist News Networks! And I mean it. Unfortunately, I also recall the very day that Walter Cronkite LOST the Vietnam War in one three minute tirade. Trust me on this, beyond the MSM Cronkite is no HERO! Far from it.
I think Cruz has a greater and more consistent conservative record than anyone else. AND the elites hate him...a real plus in my book. That he is treated to a tape over his mouth for the most part in the debates means the moderators know he could slice and dice them..so they promote a trump and whoever food fight adn plump the rino favorites bush rubio and fiorina or kasick. .
