  1. oh Jesus fucking christ this guy is acting like this area has never flooded!!!! it happens every year!!! this is like living in Florida and then being surprised that you got hit by a freken hurricane!!! and he wants to blame it on climate change!!!!!! GO TO CALIFORNIA YOU DEMOCRATIC IDIOT!!!!

  2. PUT YOUR TRUST IN NO MAN!!! THIS COUNTY IS NOT FOR BLACKS WHICH IT NEVER WAS!! WE WERE BROUGHT HERE BY FORCE ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT! THIS WAS NEVER OUR LAND. BE STRONG 💪🏽 TO ALL MY BLACK PEOPLE THAT FOUGHT AND STILL ARE FIGHTING THIS STRUGGLE.WE WILL PREVAIL. They will be our foot stools in time..WATCH AND SEE HOW GOD WORKS🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  3. DEMAND the Army Corps of Engineers to investigate and assist this crisis in Mississippi.

    The USA sent 68 BILLION to the Ukraine and we have our own citizens SUFFERING through these types of events? THERE’S NO EXCUSE!

  4. Just fix the dang problem!! And quit running your mouth about it!
    Your citizens..your taxpayers..the reason you politicians have a job deserve better..you should be highly ashamed.

  5. So much for Biden's "infrastructure bill" 😂 $15 billion to solve the water crisis in Flint and in Mississippi. Yet our government just sent another batch of money to Ukraine? Ukraine has so far received $54 billion dollars from the United States Government. How much money has Mississippi and Flint Michigan received?? ZERO DOLLARS $

  6. Voters need to vote out the governor and replace him with a Democrat governor that will stay a step ahead of the dangers facing Mississippi citizens,vote blue.

  7. Utilities need to be under the control of the government. Privatization of these systems helps the GOP raise dark money. Has helped them price people out. Has helped them accomplish a lot of their underhanded goals. Electrical, Gas & water are too vital for it to be controlled by right leaning entities. If people are going to “wake up”. Then really wake up and realize everything we do . Every aspect of our life funds the GOP in some way.

  8. My city added water district fees that all utility customers paid and they issued Muni Bonds to fund upgrades to water intact and replace supply lines. Why doesn't Jackson MS do this?

  9. US needs to look at the water catching nets, designed in the middle east. They work in the morning catching humidity and fog with condensation. They've managed agriculture with them. There is demand in America but no industry to satisfy. Make some money.

  10. Just to be clear what's happening here is severe neglect of infrastructure.

    Mississippi Republicans voted AGAINST the infrastructure bill. Even though multiple towns and cities in their state have SEVERE issues with their infrastructure including, as we see here, their water systems.

    This is dire. And you can thank Republicans for that. Obama tried to pass a massive infrastructure bill ten years ago and Republicans in Congress whittled that down to barely anything.

    Trump takes over of course nothing happens with infrastructure even though Trump repeatedly promised because parts of the country are about to collapse.

    Then Biden comes in, and Democrats gain control of the House and Senate. Within a year the pass the biggest infrastructure bill this country has ever seen and almost every Republican in the house and Senate voted against it.

    I'm not a fan of Democrats. In fact I think political parties should be outlawed because they hold way too much power.

    But until that happens quit voting for the Republican party until they change their policies to ACTUALLY help Americans and this country. There is literally NO EXCUSE for Republicans to have blocked infrastructure bills for so long, especially when they had no problem passing tax reforms that gave the richest people in our country trillions in tax breaks.

    My grandma used to always say, " The Republican party is for the rich and the Democrat party is for everyone else.". As an independent my entire adult life I completely agree.

  11. So how am I supposed to see all of these incredibly terrible things 100 percent of the time affecting the black and brown communities so much more severely and not think America isn't literally trying to exterminate the black and brown community. WTF!!!!!!!

  12. I can't thank myself enough 🙏 Despite the economic recession,I'm so happy☺️. I have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $10,000 investment on short term.

  13. “Climate change ain’t real.”
    “We don’ want Government in our lives.”
    “Private enterprise always deliver”.
    “It’s all the fault of those radical left Dems.”
    “it’s the judgment of God.”
    “It would all be solved by a good man with a gun.”
    These and similar messages brought to you by the Republican Party, the Party of Freedom and letting you blame everyone else for everything wrong with you- ‘specially for those coloured folks, Jews, uppity women, homosexuals Godless liberals, them there Muslims, Nancy Pelosi, Liz Cheney, the deep state, and any other stuff that presses your buttons if you have enough water to get you through to November.
