Ginnie Springs have long been treasured among the string of pearls that line Florida’s picturesque Santa Fe River, a playground for water sports enthusiasts and an ecologically critical haven for the numerous species of turtles that nest on its banks.

Soon, however, it is feared there could be substantially less water flowing through, if a plan by the food and beverage giant Nestlé wins approval.

This is how theft of the commons destroys public resources.

Bottled water intrastate is no regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, which is a federal agency. Often bottled water is less pure--and less safe--that tap water.

Many communities suffer severe water shortages while commercial bottlers drain off their water for practically free. It is called corruption.

The water and sewer is a government responsibility. People should not have to buy bottled water in order to get "pure" water. Yet that is the trend because--well--the private market "always does everything better".

Nestle is a worldwide water terrorist organization that is fully supported by the corrupt politicians where they operate.

For example, Nestle opened a water bottling plant in Phoenix, in a desert, where they are paying regular water rates and making millions on their virtually free 'product.'

I would love to know who they paid off, and how much they paid, in order to get the OK for this plant.

This documentary highlights Nestle's atrocities:

There is no reason to buy bottle water, it takes millions of gallons of gas to haul truck looads of water coast to coast when most tap water is just as good as bottled. People need to stop over paying for something that is basically free!

The American idiots have been brainwashed into believing bottled water is better than regular tap water. It's not. It's just immensely profitable.

Well, in Flint, MI and Newark, NJ, it is.
