Ban Bottled Water!!!!!!Submitted by user_corrupt on Wed, 01/14/2009 - 08:22
Ok, now that I have your attention...
I just wanted to tell everyone about a recent experience that I had.
I recently met someone who invited me to a political event, and I decided to go, even though I don't usually attend those sorts of things.
A lady named Maud Barlow was speaking about why water needs to be a "human right" instead of a "commodity", and she also stressed the need to ban bottled water.
Maud Barlow is an international water expert, who is associated with the United Nations.
I sat and listened to the propaganda, while all the sheeple clapped for their hero, and it made me feel absolutely miserable.
Come question time, I decided that I really had to ask some questions that would hopefully make everyone realize what complete idiots that they were, and I also happened to be the first person to get to ask a question (I was sitting absolute front and center).
Question 1: "If a private company wants to sell me bottled water without fluoride, can you or anyone else on this panel please explain to me why I should instead use fluoridated water from the city, and feed my child poison?"
Moderator: "Uh....I think we're gonna change the format...yeah, we're gonna go around and ask a few questions, and then the panel will take notes and respond all at once..."
Me: "Don't you think that's out of form"?
Eventual answer from Maud: "Fluoride is a matter of debate that we recognize, blah blah blah..."
Question 2: "If water is going to be a "human right", as opposed to a "commodity", what branch of government will be responsible for controlling that? Will it be provincial? (I'm in Canada), Federal? And if this involves the United Nations, will it become a matter of international law? I have been reading about a United Nations law called Codex Alimentarious, and it places severe restrictions on vitamins and minerals globally...so why should we trust the United Nations with our water? Should we just have water be controlled locally, so that we as a community can have more of an influence?
Eventual answer from Maud: "Some countries that have adopted this have amended their constitution....not "international law"...a "covenant"....we are not imposing anything....we support local control....
Me: "What about Codex?"
Maud: "There are problems at UN, I admit...I can't control that...they are very close with big water companies...."
Me: "Is China doing a good job?
(shocked look on entire panel, and gasps from audience)
Maud: "This isn't a two way conversation."
Moderator: "Can we get some questions from someone who didn't ask any yet?
Question 3: "If you acknowledge that fluoride is an issue, then why do you constantly champion "pure wonderful drinking water" from your local government utility? Are you perhaps lobbyists for water bureaucrats? Is that your role?
Maud: Doesn't bother to answer that one.
All in all I had a great time disrupting the entire communist beauty pageant and making all of the bolsheviks hate me. I strongly recommend that you all try it some time.
