DON'T FORGET TO "LIKE" BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY ON FACEBOOK!
Name: Rick Snyder
Occupation: the most-hated governor in America
Last Seen: Ann Arbor, MI
Bee-otched For: being quite possibly the most-corrupt politician in America right now
For the past year, Flint, MI, pop. 100,000 has had to struggle with a water system that is not suitable for human consumption.
It all started when Gov. Rick Snyder hired beancounters to take over control of the state's poorest cities - aka those towns with a high African American population - to simply push aside elected politicians so they could run the towns like Flint in hopes of solving their financial issues.
Well, it didn't work out for Flint, did it?
The jackass hired to run Flint decided to switch the town's water system from Lake Huron to the Flint River, which automakers like GM have been using for 100 years as a dumping ground. They claimed that they dumped a chemical in there that made the water safe to drink, but instead, it stripped the pipes, causing lead to enter the city's water system. Now, peoples' lives are at risk all in the name of saving the state a few million bucks. Instead, it's causing children to get sick, brain damaged and worse, death.
Now, celebrities are asking for Snyder to get severely punished for his idiotic deed, including Flint's most-famous resident, Michael Moore.
On his website last week, Moore called for the embattled Michigan governor to go to jail for his actions. "A reckless driver who kills a child, still goes to jail," said Moore in his letter to Snyder. "I'm asking everyone who agrees with me to sign on to this petition and call for your arrest, Governor Snyder. You are not allowed to run amok in my hometown like you have done. The children whom you have poisoned have to endure a life of pain and lower IQ's from your actions. You have destroyed a generation of children -- and for that, you must pay."
The site even has a petition - which I personally signed - for Snyder's immediate resignation as Michigan governor and for the FBI to do an investigation into his arrest.
But Moore's not alone. Legendary pop singer, actress and soundtrack provider to doggie doors for horses Cher took it one step further last week when she proclaimed that Snyder not only go to jail, but also be put to death by a firing squad. She proclaimed on Twitter that Snyder was a murderer and also called out other politicians who are greedy and corrupt.
Snyder proclaimed a state of emergency for Flint and Genesee County last Tuesday, the same day the U.S. Attorney's office started an investigation into the matter.
All we can say is, somebody might be seeing steel real soon.
True, I have a Brita water filter that allows me to drink enough water to make me piss every three minutes, but let's face it: people like Snyder have made something that SHOULD be a human right - drinking clean water - into a luxury for many in a town like Flint that's seen better days. Hell, I have a feeling that Snyder might be in the pockets of companies like Nestle, who believe that only those with money should be allowed to drink water.
I totally agree that Snyder is purely at fault for what he's done with not only Flint, but this state. He's just as bad - no, WORSE - than John Engler. The only good thing is that Snyder will be out two terms' max. Engler fucked over this state for 12 long, miserable years. Granholm spent most of her eight years in office wiping Engler's ass and the same for Bush's.
This state was wrecked by a nerd. It's time for somebody even smarter to clean his shit up.
