Cher To Send Water To Flint Residents


Courtesy of Addicting Info:

What’s happening in Flint, Michigan is beyond heartbreaking. Residents cannot drink their water due to lead contamination, but to add insult to injury, the water was originally declared safe. Then, as children began getting sick and the water was exposed as being toxic, government officials, including a slow to react Gov. Rick Snyder (R) finally thought they should do something about the toxic levels. To be blunt, what’s happening there is criminal, and someone needs to be held responsible. President Obama has even declared a state of emergency.

Stepping up big time to help the residents of Flint is none other than the legendary artist Cher. She has been very outspoken in her feelings about what’s been happening. Now, she’s not only voicing her opinion, but putting action to her words, she’s bringing fresh water to the people there who so desperately need it.

Partnering with natural spring water company Icelandic Glacial, Cher is donating 181,440 bottles of water to Flint.

Good on Cher and shame on Snyder. He needs to be behind bars. What he has done is criminal.

      I don’t understand the problem. The birth certificate clearly says: “Name of Mother Before Marriage.” The mother’s name before marriage to the father – Rafael Cruz – was Eleanor Darragh Wilson.

      • 40Watt says:

        Correction – she wrote “Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson” – but it makes no difference. She was answering a question about what name she was known by before her 2nd marriage.

        I actually was a bit confused about it. The original article was not very clear at all. It seemed to indicate that Wilson had been named as the father on the BC which as you are pointing out, does not seem to be the case.

        There is also no denying that Ted is the son of that old goat from Cuba.

        So sorry to have posted something that wasn’t 100% clear. Apologies.

      Couple of comments from reddit:

      “Obama birtherism is based on non-acceptance of indisputable facts. In the Cruz case, the facts are not in dispute. Everyone knows he was born in Canada, the question revolves around the legal meaning of ‘natural born citizen.’
      Cruz was born in Canada and then lived there for 4 years before coming to the states. Not too sure how that’s natural born. Maybe if they were on vacation or something but they were Canadian citizens who lived,worked, and voted there.”

      “The thing is, “natural-born citizen” was never defined in the Constitution, although it was given as a requirement. That means that the debate doesn’t revolve around whether he was born in the states, but whether inheriting his mother’s citizenship counts as “natural-born.”
      If the answer is “yes,” that would be interesting, because it could apply to people who have never lived in the United States.”

    Cher is a class act. Saw her in person several years ago, GREAT concert. I have always been a big fan, straight talking woman. This is what caring people do, who can afford to do it, HELP rather than wait for others to step up to the plate.Maybe Pyme should ask for donations to her Pac, to send water to the people of Detroit? She will keep most of the $$$ and send a couple of bottles of water. Michael Moore is there, he is a person who shines a light where others want to keep people in the dark. He will get something done.

    Well, F.U.C.K.
    Glenn Frey has passed.
    If you came of age in the 70’s and 80’s,The Eagles were our fabric.
    Times,places and people having FUN whilst we blasted their music,indelibly printed in our minds.

    Cruisin’ down the center of a two way street
    Wond’rin’ who is really in the driver’s seat
    Mindin’ my bus’ness along comes big brother
    Says, “Son, you better get on one side or the other.”

    I’m out on the border, I’m walkin’ the line
    Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order
    I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine.

    After a hard day, I’m safe at home
    Foolin’ with my baby on the telephone
    Out of nowhere somebody cuts in and
    Says, “Hmm, you in some trouble boy, we know where you’re been.”

    I’m out on the border
    I thought this was a private line
    Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order
    I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine

    Never mind your name, just give us your number, mm
    Never mind your face, just show us your card, mm
    And we wanna know whose wing are you under
    You better step to the right or we can make it hard

    I’m stuck on the border
    All I wanted was some peace of mind
    Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order
    I’m try’n’ to change this water to wine

    On the border
    On the border
    On the border
    On the border
    On the border
    Leave me be , I’m just walkin’ this line
    On the border
    On the border
    All I wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind
    I’m out on the border
    On the border
    Can’t you see I’m tryin to change this water to wine
    Don’t you tell me ’bout your law and order
    Sick and tired of all your law and order
    Sick and tired of it
