America's Water Arrogance

United States aid to African nations averages about $3.00 per taxpayer. This means I spend less on helping the starving, naked, thirsty, sick and illiterate than most Americans spend for every TallGrandeVenti MochaTunaDecafSoyLatte.

There are 300,000,000 (that's three hundred million) Africans without access to drinking water.

Just to be certain we Americans make it clear we are at the top of the food chain, not only are we failing to assist impoverished nations gain access to drinking water, we are now marketing special water for our dogs!

K9 Water Co., Inc. is proud to offer you Toilet Water, Puddle Water, Hose Water and Gutter Water, the world's first vitamin fortified bottled water specifically formulated to provide your dog with essential vitamins that contribute to overall good health and provide the hydration your dog needs.

At two bucks a bottle, a dog-owner can spend two-thirds of his entire contribution to support water programs in Africa on a single bottle of beef-flavored Gutter Water for their canine cohabitant.

The world doesn't hate us because we are successful and powerful (they used to admire us for it), they hate us because we are cheap and vulgar and stupid!

See for yourself!
