The River Still Flows Caustic

Feb 15, 2016

The experts now say that children were poisoned in Flint because caustic river water leached lead out of pipes.

Yes, but why is the Flint River caustic?

Could it be GM, which occupied nearly a two-mile length of its banks before pulling up stake and deserting Flint? It dumped so much heavy metal tailings into the river that its banks still destroy new water running by?

Of course, GM’s the culprit, but which governor, which party Democrat or Republican, is ready to challenge GM? After all, as GM used to say, “What’s good for GM is good for the nation.”

No–what was good for GM has poisoned Flint’s children.
