PK Note: To understand the horror of what’s happening in post-apartheid South Africa, check out A Country at War with Itself: South Africa’s Crisis of Crime. Published in 2009, it’s a straight-forward account of the [black] violence engulfing the nation, and the extraordinary, painstaking precautionary measures whites go to protect themselves and their property. It’s happening in the USA already…

 

The ultimate question: What is it with majority black cites and unpaid and “outrageous” water bills and why isn’t this a problem in majority white cities?

Detroit, Flint, Camden, Birmingham and Baltimore all have water bills equaling 6-8% of median household income for black families while the average white families is .25-.50 of median household income…

The next frontier in the never-ending mandate of white taxpayers uplifting blacks in the USA is free water. [NAACP Legal Defense Fund report calls out Baltimore’s water crisis:Study examines Baltimore and Cleveland water, WMAR2.com, May 22, 2019]:

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund is working on water equality and sites Baltimore and its “water crisis” in a recent report.

In this 16-page reportthe NAACP Legal Defense Fund outlines the water crisis in American cities. In it they studied Baltimore. The report states, “We determined that Baltimore’s water affordability crisis has, and will continue to have, a disproportionate and detrimental impact on the city’s Black neighborhoods.”

“We cannot talk about the water affordability crisis without centering the conversation on its disproportionate racial impact,” said Coty Montag, Senior Counsel at LDF and author of Water/Color, “Low-income families of color are being forced out of their homes because of rapidly rising water prices. Although there have been important strides in recognizing that access to water is a human right, few studies have explored the effect unaffordable water prices have on Black communities in particular. Americans must think of this crisis not only as an environmental justice issue, but as a racial justice one too.”

Overall the report outlines how in recent decades water prices have only increased. Research from the NAACP LDF found failing infrastructure is the biggest contributing factor, which we’ve witnessed in Baltimore.

Specifically the report highlights how water bills for many city residents are unaffordable, and prices are only going to increase.

Citing a study from Economist Roger Colton for Food & Water Watch, projected water bills for Baltimore customers will cost an average of $860.06 in 2019 and $938.45 in 2020.

Baltimore City is working on fixing the water bill problem with the Water Accountability and Equity Act, which still has yet to be approved.

Potable water is not a human right. You can s till traverse across Europe and see the aqueducts the Romans built more than two millennia ago, as they stand as a proud reminder of what a people can accomplish on this earth for future generations of their progeny.

Less than 40 years after a city like Baltimore, Cleveland, Birmingham and Camden went from majority white to majority black, the level of civilization found in cities has receded to the African mean. And we quickly learn the infrastructure whites long ago built cannot be maintained.

Because paying your water bill is apparently just something white people do

  1. I’ve already been through this stuff with the bill from the emergency room. “We can pay for ourselves, but I can’t be payin’ for those 4 illegal aliens in there with us.” Well, the guy seemed taken aback on the phone, but when you don’t care about your credit rating, taken’ aback doesn’t bother me one bit. They only got my share of the money.

    Perhaps I’ll run a line around the meter if this were to happen. (The tricky part is busting into the pressurized side, but there are ways.) They say you can’t fight city hall, but, si, se puede! Don’t be a sucker for this, people.

    Give a white man a pile of bricks and he will create a city. Give a black man a city and he will create a pile of bricks.

  4. If the NAACP wishes to pay the ignorant black’s water bill with the money they’re pocketing then, feel free.

    If they want the people of the state to pay for the water usage of someone else, then f*ck them. There is no legal precedent that says if you can’t pay your bills the American public will do it for you.

    How about this? If you can’t pay your water bill, don’t use so much water. Or move.

    If you don’t pay your water, electric, gas, sewer, garbage bill…expect your service to stop. Just like cable, phone or anything else you wish to have but refuse to pay for.

    Stop being useless, expensive pets of the elite. Stand up and finally throw off your shackles instead of gold plating them. You’re still slaves to the very people telling you you’re still slaves to someone else. Stop living off of others and take some pride in your existence.

    Jesus, God what’s wrong with them!?!

  5. Those annual water bills are less than mine. I have no pool, spa, or evaporative cooler. I have a small patch of grass for the dog, nothing extravagant.

    How much longer before we admit that blacks can’t do anything for themselves? Can’t prioritize the water bill? Or power?

    These wonderful pets are good for sporting entertainment and little else.

  10. Black dominated cities are always in a state of constant crisis. Yet the only thing that changed was the population from white to black. Funny how none of the numerous widespread crises existing in black run cities existed when the cities were solid white. The problem is that whitey isn’t taking care of the idiot negroes and supplying them with everything they want and need as well as maintaining everything for them so they can infest the cities in comfort. All at someone else’s expense and labor of course. As an added bonus, whitey gets to get blamed for negro incompetence and their allowing everything to deteriorate around themselves. Naturally, the fall back excuse of negroes is~ gasp!~ it be raycism!

    To avoid water bills, perhaps blacks should all move to African villages located by rivers or lakes as their primary water supply. Oh wait, that won’t work, they keep crapping in the water over there. Back to my drawing board. Maybe rain barrels? No, not enough rain in all areas of the country. Look

    I give up, this will have to fall on white people to supply their water via treatment plants, pipelines, wells and other white solutions. It must destroy self esteem to know one’s entire race is totally dependent on a race you hate.

    At least the corrupt, government, school system is geared toward giving black people self esteem, by making young, white children feel guilty about slavery. How’s that working? Producing enough black morons with arrogance out of all proportion, and self-delusion? Nothing is as much fun as morons who think they should be rocket scientists, or Wakanda architects.

  14. There definitely is a pattern …

    The Mongols, even before Temujin invented them and gave them the Law, executed those caught polluting running water. I´m sure most desert people had similar provisions.

    Modern “water rights” documentaries are almost comically stereotypical.

    Chapter 1, South America:
    Village Elder “Ah, my grandfather´s grandfather always shit in river and no one ever get sick before Wasicun come”.
    Diagnosis: Libtard interviewer read too much Chief Seattle, moderate indolence and culture shock elder.
    Chapter 2, South Africa:
    Menacing yoof with gubmint sanction loitering around reservoir, “looking for work”.
    Have to be kept from defecating in with razor wire. Libtard reporter explains how eeebil company is for bottling water before it can be defecated in.
    Diagnosis: The difference in mood is palpable; it´s almost as if there was a “destroy everything you cannot rape or steal lest it be of use to others” gene specific to Bantus.
    (if there is, it has proven highly adaptive :D)

    – Frankly, I do not believe they will learn from Flint (or anywhere else), and cannot think of anything workable; but they SHOULD be billed for what they ruin (not only water).
    This is called “reparations” ;b

  15. luludog says:

    Most black folk feel its a waste of time to sit down and deal with their bills every month. That’s a white man thang. So when the City turns the water off, they just go next doa to a neighbors house to shower or grab a bucket a water out of the nearest fire hydrant and life goes on. Its all part of the decay of the inner cities and they don’t care. They revel in it and know that in the end, WT will take care of them just like they’ve been doing since the days of the plantations.

  16. “We cannot talk about the water affordability crisis without centering the conversation on its disproportionate racial impact”

    While we’re at it, have you noticed that the prices of Cadillacs, Mercedes, Cristal, Lobster, Gold Chains, and Mary Jane are all disproportionate too.

    Remember, we’re talking about people who honestly think everything should be free–for them, anyway.

  17. Those whites remaining in Baltimore and Cleveland best get ready for some humongous water bills so their black neighbors can shower and wash their cars. I’m looking forward to these cities being 100% black, or at least 90% black, to fully expose the economic and judicial truth of cities that are ‘run by blacks for blacks’. If whites stay in these towns and tolerate this abuse, they will get exactly what they deserve. Of course, from a larger perspective, eventually these cities will demand water as a basic human right (entitlement) and demand the government pay for ALL water…and Democrats will gladly play along to keep the black vote. Then we’ll ALL pay for water for those in Baltimore, Cleveland and elsewhere via federal water funding. You can see it all coming…

  18. OT in Chicongo: Dude Inc. generated some disappointing numbers over the Memorial Day Weekend however the weather was lousy. Of course, for those living in the Free Zone these numbers are still mind-boggling. I expect things to go back to TNB once the temperatures rise above 80 degrees and the public schools let out June 16th.

    Real Chicago crime numbers for Memorial Day 2019:

    Hmmm. How’s this for a crime fighting idea. Install a sprinkler system at the rooftop level throughout the black areas in Chicongo. Set it to go on during the most typically violent times of day, with an override of course for those hot days.

    Keep them wet. Keep them home. Less crime, less murders. Problem solved.

    Dark side is that they will be seeking ‘inside entertainment’, rape and incest (or, as it’s called in the black world ‘dating’) and there will be a huge explosion in the number of new shooters/sows nine months later.

    I guess no system is perfect with the black.

    If the cities were sane, they would immediately condemn the properties when that was done, evict the water thieves and seize their housing allowances so they’d have to actually work and pay rent if they wanted a roof with or without water.  That would stop such shenanigans post haste.

    It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some 50 miles of concrete highway.

    We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat.

    By the way, in the latest news in the 2nd largest Ebola outbreak…

    (Reuters) – A mob in eastern Congo killed an Ebola health worker and looted a clinic, the Health Ministry said on Tuesday, underscoring a breakdown in public trust that is hampering efforts to contain the deadly virus.

    Attacks on treatment centers by armed groups and mistrust among residents who view the disease as a conspiracy have become major impediments to containing Democratic Republic of Congo’s worst-ever Ebola outbreak.

    The hemorrhagic fever has so far killed 1,281 people, according to the latest ministry figures, and shows no signs of slowing its spread, with dozens of new cases a week.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The ministry said that on Saturday residents of the village of Vusahiro, in the Mabalako district, “rose up and attacked the local Ebola response team, made up of village residents who were trained to carry out certain response activities”.

    A hygienist from the infection prevention and control team died of his injuries when he was transferred to hospital, it said.

    Responders, healthcare workers, and community members are increasingly subjected to threats from armed groups in hotspots such as Katwa and Butembo, the World Health Organization says, complicating efforts to contain Ebola.

    U.N. officials say that stopping targeted attacks on health workers requires untangling deep-rooted political problems in eastern Congo. Dialogue has led to a recent reduction in large-scale attacks on health workers, WHO emergencies chief Mike Ryan told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday.

    Still, an uphill battle remains. Between January and early May, there were 42 attacks on health facilities, with 85 workers either injured or killed, according to WHO figures from May 3.

    Health workers have been attacked six times in the last eight days, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the closing session of the annual World Health Assembly in Geneva on Tuesday.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    “These attacks demonstrate that the ongoing Ebola outbreak is more than a health crisis,” he said. “Ending it takes a coordinated and strengthened effort across the U.N. system…with strong leadership from the government.”

    The best way to “fight city hall” is to move out in the country where you have your own well–and vote “no” whenever the town tries to extend the water line. These days “civilization” is not your friend.

    This is exactly right. The schools try to equalize the races by pushing White guilt (especially on the males) and boosting up Black self-esteem as much as they can.

    So you have all these Blacks believing they would be living Wakanda if not for Whites and White males are taught that they ruined the world. Dopey liberal teachers still believe that everything is environmental and that Blacks just need the right boost (and Whites need to be taken down a notch). However studies have shown for decades that Blacks have higher self-esteem than Whites.

  35. What are they doing with all of this water? Clearly, they aren’t washing things with it.

    I snickered at the part about the bill being high for a single woman.

    As if we’re supposed to believe that no baby daddys were taking a shower there.

    There is definitely a problem with some of these public utilities charging outrageous fees to turn services back on. I am against that but a lot of these utilities are put in a situation where they:

    1. Have to hire diversity regardless of talent pool
    2. Have to accept a high level of unpaid bills
    3. Have to maintain a budget since new taxes go to higher priorities, often paying debt.

    So they start increasing fees here and there to stay alive. Corporations can simply leave but these utilities have to maintain a basic level of service and also stick to a budget.

    The underlying problem is race denial. Both liberals and conservatives *want to believe* that race doesn’t exist and these areas just need the right policies. But isn’t it quite odd that neither side has a working Black city that isn’t subsidized by the Feds? Some of these cities were probably salvageable to a basic level (not Wakanda but Botswana) but I’m convinced that welfare dysgenics have destroyed their potential. Moron liberals bred the worst gangsters with the most irresponsible women. A lot of the Democrats in these areas have been trying to move in Hispanics which tells us they have already switched to the Brazil 2 strategy. They want to cut Blacks with Hispanics and drop their crime problems via dilution.

    Agreed.
    I went to the hospital with a possible broken arm, (after being attacked by a car load of Blacks for the crime of riding through “their” neighborhood.) I sat there for 7 hours, finally got an xray and turned out to be a bad sprain. They gave me a tetanus shot, band aid, Ace bandage and a sling. I told them I didn’t want the sling because it was uncomfortable and I won’t wear it anyway. They said “just take it”. A week later I get the bill. $4 for the bandaid, $18 Ace bandage, $38 sling, etc., nearly 10 times what Walgreens charges. Overall $768 (this was 1993). I called and told them straight up I am not paying any of this, I refused the sling so take that off, and I’ll pay a reasonable about, couple hundred bucks, or you get nothing. They refused, I never paid, went on my credit, gone in 7 years. Do not pay these people. Hide your assets.

    Another time I went to get an ultrasound of my gallbladder, non emergency. The lady at the hospital front desk scheduling the appointment asked for my insurance. Told her cash pay. She says “oh, lemme see if i can get the cash price, there we go, $185. Otherwise the insurance price is $650.”

    Perhaps it’s strange, but I rent.

    I pay the rent, gas and electric and my landlord covers all the other crap. Reminds me when I was younger that I lived in another city for business, paying 500/month to rent a room in a house.

    Coming home from work one day I heard a black woman complaining that a place on the block was renting for 1200/month. She loudly exclaimed that “they must want white people living there”. If a place went for market rent in a poor white area would the whites exclaim that they were trying to rent to blacks?

No, those checks up to $6,431 are reserved for mom & boyfriend pampering. They’ll shift the cost to the single, childless citizens with no monthly welfare streams and no welfare from the progressive tax code to boost up their pay. They might also shift some of the cost to white, dual-earner parents, the ones with two above-firing jobs per household, with the water department ramping up their bills to cover the cost of Black working families. The federal government could take it out of the non-refundable child tax credit cash of the dual-earner parents, but they need that cash for kitchen redos and a fifth lengthy, yearly vacation for busy-working parents.

    As for Highdesert420, it’s difficult to hide your assets from a determined foe. I assume they can try to take my house, my car, my life’s savings, etc., and there’s really no way to “hide” any of that.

    When times get very good and people become fat and complacent, the political system predictably becomes nothing but ORGANIZED CRIME.

    “It must destroy self esteem to know one’s entire race is totally dependent on a race you hate.”

    All they feel is entitled to gibsmedats because “whitey owes them” and outrage and resentment when they don’t get it. In their simple minds, they’re simply being done wrong and being mistreated.

    I remember reading an article about an Alabama town where the negroes (who paid few taxes) were complaining that all the improvements made by the city were in white areas~ you know, in areas where people actually paid the taxes that made said improvements possible in the first place. The negroes simply expected to receive the exact same things in their areas as those who actually paid for improvements. It’s like walking into a restaurant with two dollars in your pocket and feeling entitled to a thirty dollar steak dinner and feeling sullen, resentful and mistreated when you don’t get it. In terms of the aforementioned city improvements, the negro responds by pulling out the race and victim cards along with the demands for equal treatment. “Why dey gettin’ dat and I ain’t? Dis be discrimination!” A friend of mine used to refer to such people as “having a two dollar wallet and a ten dollar mind”- always expecting and demanding something far in excess of any contribution they made or anything they paid for and feeling entitled to it. That’s the negro mentality in a nut shell.

    As for water, I remember another story where negroes were complaining about water bills and screeching that water should be free because “it fall from da sky!” Absolutely no concept that the infrastructure had to be built and paid for to provide the water and the water had to be pumped to their homes and that cost money. No, it just magically appears and comes out of the water faucet. Their attitude is that since they don’t have to pay for the air they breathe, why should they have to pay for the water they drink? Air free, water should be free too!

    This is what happens when you have a simple-minded primitive species of human living in the modern world. They simply can’t understand or comprehend the world around themselves or how things work and become a total pain in the ass.

    Unfortunately, I am IN the “health care” (sickness) business.

    I know exactly what you are saying.

    When people pay me cash, the price is lower…Without giving my job away, let me give an example.

    A “customer” comes in and the charge would be $68, cash, self pay, no insurance.

    If you have “insurance” then you have a “co pay” of $20……I bill the BS insurance company $159 and they pay me $128…………..I have made $148 for what I will happily accept for $68 if you pay cash.

    So, what does this all mean…………..IF the government would pass a bill, allowing us in the TOTALLY corrupt sleazy health care business to charge self pay “customers” what ever we all agree, then prices would drop DRAMATICALLY…..but we are not allowed…………….So, next time you get sick of the bills, Blame your “insurance” company who is bribing the aholes that run your State Insurance Agency.

    How do I know they are bribing them? I’ve been in this sleaze for over 4 decades….I have been approached by them and I have been offered money, trips, gifts, etc. to “be a team player”……

    The video clips also show police officers repeatedly intervening to pluck individual youths out of larger groups as they were being attacked. At one point, a youth being targeted by the crowd around him runs directly into the arms of an officer, seemingly for protection.

    The footage was part of a 5 ½-minute compilation of video that Baltimore Police officials put together in response to a request by The Baltimore Sun for Inner Harbor footage from Saturday evening, when hundreds of youths were hanging out downtown and police made six arrests.

    There appears to be a genuine problem with Baltimore’s Water Department’s billing, but of course the NAACP is milking it. If you go two clicks in, you find this:

    It’s the number one complaint that comes into Baltimore City Hall. My water bill is too high, and I don’t think it’s right.

    The Water Accountability and Equity Act won’t fix all of the previous mistakes that the city has made. These enormous and incorrect bills are causing some people to lose their homes. The city has been billing Friendship Baptist church for around 700 gallons of water a day for years.

    Problem is Pastor Alvin Gwynn Sr. said there’s usually only one person in the church during the week.

    “I was forced to install my own water meter here lately,” Gwynn Sr. said. “Now I’m looking at my water meter. I’m averaging 200 gallons a day is what I’m actually using, which means they’ve been over billing me 2/3 of the usage for the last four years.”

    The problem sounds like the usual one of bureaucratic incompetence and indifference. We had a very similar problem with water bills in the majority white city where I live. Granted, like I said, the NAACP is milking it and looking for a permanent subsidy as opposed to actually correcting the problem of inaccurate bills.

    I just read CENTURION’s comment below, but, though, I’m not in the business, I’ve got doctor friends. Want a little more advice, DC? If you do care about your credit and get some kind of ridiculous bill (based on your paying for others who get the freebies), then just pay $1, $5, or $10 monthly*. You may as well pay $5 I guess, if you’re gonna pay 50 cents for the stamp, 24 cents for the check, and a few cents for the envelope. I should get to the point – he says that they can not take action on your credit or collections or what-have-you, so long as you keep paying that monthly … like forever!

    As far as hiding your stuff, yes there are ways. I would look into it, and I don’t want to tell you details on all of it. It’s good to have some COMPLETELY trustworthy friends, let me put it that way, and the same applies if you were to have an impending divorce (something you kinda see coming).

    .

    * If you really want to be a dick about it to them on purpose (I couldn’t blame ya’), then yeah, make it a check for 2 cents each time. Just pay regularly.

  56. @Achmed E. Newman

    This works unless and until a credit agency gets ahold of your personal information, such as your phone numbers, residence, and where you work. They will HOUND you until you are driven nearly crazy. I’ve had this happen twice in 15 years – once for a tuition bill for college I kept paying until it was paid off, even while asking them nicely on the phone not to call me at work (which request they refused to honor). The other was a disputed bill where the original company insisted on charging me for double interest. I paid off the original bill but refused to pay for the illegal interest. They kept after me for 5 years after the statute of limitations on reports submitted to credit companies like Experion, ran. I could have sued them but didn’t want to be bothered.

    Indeed. There should be an official record of legitimate shots fired in every large city (even if no one is hit) so we can get an irrefutable picture of what demographic is actually doing all the shooting and to show that America is actually currently engaged in a low-level urban guerrilla insurgency (US Civil War Lite 2.0). Instead, the government and media denies and covers up the actual chaos in the black areas of America and pushes for more gun laws and more handouts from Whitey (and ammo taxes, police overtime, etc).
    The number of shots fired was at 59 over the past weekend. I retrieved this number from the times Chicago police officers called in shots that they personally heard or witnessed while on patrol (or were detected by Shot Spotter cameras). You know as well as I that the CPD only calls in shots fired if they hear four or more of them. I could not find the data of Chicago citizens calling 911 to report shots fired. My guess is that the actual number would double or triple! So over 72 hours during the Memorial Day weekend there were probably about 175 shooting incidents. That’s a lot of lead flying around during a weekend when it was only 60 degrees and raining everyday. I’m looking, laughing and in 5 years retiring.

    Complain all we want but what is being done to stop this foolish slide into darkness. Our Politicians are all afraid to stand up to anyone on the left when it comes to race. I love the name of the bill The water Accountability and EQUITY Act. Basically, this relieves Blacks of all accountability and removes all vestiges of equality. Somebody tell the NAACP clean drinkable water ain’t free. Besides those annual bills are less than mine. They run $55 month.

  61. The first thing I tend to do with these types of articles is question the math. If $860 per year is 6-8% of the median black household income in these cities, that would mean their income is around $10-14K per year. Does that $10-14K only include income that is actually earned, or does it also include gibsmedats like Section 8 housing assistance and other cash infusions? If it’s just earned income, I could see that being a realistic figure, considering how many of them actually earn nothing.

    But on the other hand, only 0.25-0.5% of your median white houshold income? That puts that figure at a wide range of $172-344K per year. These figures seem suspect to me. I have a feeling these numbers have been juggled to make the blacks look even more victimized.

    That $860/yr also seems a bit high to me. When I lived in PG County, our water bill averaged around $100-150 per quarter. So, $400-600 per year. However, water rates surely vary by jurisdiction. Plus, I also have this thing called “Future Time Orientation.” I know if I don’t conserve water, I will have a big bill. If you don’t have “Future Time Orientation,” you don’t think that far ahead, and just expect the bill to magically go away.

    I guess I’m fortunate. I couldn’t care less about my credit report, as I
    1. Don’t need to borrow money…ever.
    2. Am not looking for a job.

    As far as I know, there are no other ways having a bad credit report could hurt me. It’s a paradox that those who have the highest credit score also have the least need for credit. My credit score is actually degraded by NOT having routine debt payments.

    Once upon a time I had student loans, a mortgage and car loans (I never-but-one-month revolved a charge card account…I’m what the credit card industry calls “a transactor.”) Now I have none of that, but the trade-off is that I have assets that a determined asset-stripper could target in a lawsuit.

    As for hiding assets, the only invisible asset is cash, and (1) it’s still somewhat visible since only a moron attempts to avoid CTR’s sent to FinCEN and (2) it’s a dead-capital crime invitation. There’s a firm that offers to “store” currency cash notes (US dollars, Swiss Francs, etc.) in a non-bank institution in Switzerland as the ultimate bomb-proof deflation hedge, but (1) it’s a cool million dollar minimum and (2) they charge you something like $6k/yr for the service. That’s in addition to foregoing ~$24,000/yr in yield if you just put it in T-bills, not to mention that until our credit bubble ceases its 38 year inflation, you’re also getting killed by inflation.

    Yes, I’ve thought through the question of asset protection in a world full of lawyers. No, I’ve not found an approach that makes sense to me. And no, the Internet is not a forum for comparing notes on this subject (grin.) We live in a panopticon where the NSA (and Five Eyes…and our Internet Service Provider) knows more about us that we know about ourselves. Thus we navigate largely blind in uncharted waters.

    White people just do a better job creating rationalizations for when they want to con others out of their hard-earned money. For the poster-child, look at medical services and medical insurance. What a con-artist’s cartel…

    It is human nature to want to live at the expense of others. This is the source of concentrated benefit, diffuse costs we see in essentially every single action of the political system. Spend $1,000,000 lobbying Congress to obtain a $75,000,000 benefit, but the cost/taxpayer (~$0.50) isn’t worth the price of a stamp to complain about it.

    Times literally 50,000

    The West (and the USA) peaked a hundred years ago, and only inertia and a vast store of previously produced capital have sustained us this far. The fact that these OP kinds of stories are prominent is a sign that we’re ending the period of polite delusion and approach a recognition that the Cupboard is Already Bare.

    The credit bubble (and filling of the Bond Ocean) is exactly this, too. It is a collective case of when the bank account hits zero, sustaining high lifestyles by running the credit cards to their limit. We don’t know that limit’s dollar figure (it’s a function of mass psychology, the West is already bankrupt by every measure, but recognition lags) but sooner or later the Age of Belief In Unlimited Resources will end (abruptly) and the violence of various factions knifing each other over the last scraps should be epic.

    It is the most obvious, most egregious case of racketeering ever.

    No industry in the USA holds a candle to the power of the Insurance Lobby. We have the best government money can buy, but while it IS your money buying it, the last hands holding the loot belong to someone else, and that someone buys Congressmen and regulators like the whores they are in order to rob you and me blind, deaf and dumb.

    Not to worry, however. This system is a monopoly and it obeys the Iron Laws of Monopoly, too. With medical misadventure now at least the third leading cause of death (and probably the leading cause of years-of-life-lost), the Medical/Medical-Insurance Cartel has entered the Black Hole phase of monopoly, where it vacuums up an infinite amount of resources and nothing of benefit emerges. This, too will change.

    As an aside, nothing the Black Caucus can propose is as big a robbery as the Medical/Medical-Insurance Cartel’s annual asset-strip. The “cost” of the race industry is a fart in a windstorm by comparison, even if you add up all the dead-weight losses of disparate incarceration, disparate crime and Affirmative Action.

    Some background on Baltimore’s water.

    The metro area’s water system was set up 100-plus years ago by the then economic powerhouse, Baltimore City. Watersheds, reservoirs, etc. are in nearby counties, mainly Baltimore County (entirely separate from the City). The City’s water dept. agreed to supply parts of neighboring jurisdictions; the City and the counties agreed that county customers would only be charged fees that can be ascribed to the water system (OpEx and CapEx plus a modest ‘profit’ margin).

    In other words, the City’s government cannot use its status as a monopoly utility provider to soak (heh) its non-City customers with bills that are partly earmarked for the City’s general fund.

    State legislation over the past two decades has added charges to all of the system’s customers, notably to pay for repairs of the City’s crumbling sewer system. County bills have perhaps doubled over ten years. However, the City’s Mayor and Council are free to set the water rates that City customers must pay. City rates were much higher back then, and they have skyrocketed over this time period.

    Baltimore City is ~60% black. Blacks make up around 5% to 20% of the population of surrounding counties. It’s possible that the City’s conscious use of water bills as a hidden source of general funds accounts for much of the racial disparity that the NAACP report decries. The Baltimore case study is limited to page 7 of the 16-page executive summary (PDF). When the burden on black families is discussed, City census tracts are mentioned. The report doesn’t say if these water customers’ white counterparts are County residents, whose bills are indeed much lower in absolute terms, for the reasons given above.

  80. @Boy the way Glenn Miller played

    They don’t pay the bill for a few years, and the NAACP blocks shut offs the whole time. That’s how it works in Detroit and the other black cities in Michigan, assume the same thing happens everywhere.

    In Michigan the chocolate City of Detroit owned all the water systems in the south eastern part of the state. Whites paid, Arabs and blacks didn’t. Detroit went bankrupt, the judge forced the white suburbs to ‘buy’ the water system from Detroit. They pissed the money away, and now are panicking because the blacks won’t pay, and the white money isn’t coming in any more.

  81. @Biff

    ” 6-8% of median household income for black families while the average white families is .25-.50 of median household income…”

    So, Blacks pay $1 in 12 or so- that’s 8% of income

    Whites pay $1 in 3 of income that’s .33 of income
