    Default DON't SUPPORT COMMUNISM - SAY NO TO TAP WATER!

    My new fave facebook group (which you won't find me on if you look because I haven't joined it):p

    Name:
    Don't support Communism - Say NO to tap water
    Category:Organisations - Political Organisations<br/>

    Description:Tap water is putting unfair pressure on the bottled water industry. How are entrepreneurs supposed to compete with practicly "free" (i.e. communist) tap water?

    It is a disgrace!

    We are also opposed to other kinds of communism:
    like downloading movies and music
    like freeriding on public transport
    like using tax-financed pavement
    like eating at home instead of on a resturant (of course if you have a cook employed then itīs OK)
    like having sex without any money being transfered

    There is no such thing as a free lunch.
    There is no such thing as freedom - it comes with a price tag. And if you canīt afford it? Tough shit, dude!

    But of course the greatest threat to the free world is tap water. In the words of swedish anti-communist blogger The Badlands Hyena Vomit Titbits:

    "The tapflushers [i.e. evil-doers] is living on somebody elses expense"

    We all know filesharing is killing the music industry. At the same time tap water is killing the water industry. Without the music industry there will be no music and without the water industry there will be no water.
    Human life itself is threatened by communism.
    Letīs put a end to that - with any means necessary!
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"

    This is cute in an endearingly ignorant sense, but do you actually know what the definition of communism is?

    It said "practicly free" not "free". But in any case it is a parody of those kinds of hysterical arguments and lies which are invoked against public services and the welfare state.

    Oh, phew. But I thought parodies were generally supposed to be funny on some level...

    I guess I was getting confused because all the things they listed as "free" I see as actually quite expensive.

    None of the things he listed are 'expensive' and tap water, while not free, is much cheaper than bottled water.

    You can, of course, drink water for free out of public water fountains. You could get some water at the public library, for example, instead of buying it in a store.

    Downloading of free movies and music means you have to have an internet connection... $$

    I don't know where you live but it costs me $15 for a round-trip metro ticket

    That tax-financed pavement you walk on was financed by your purchase of gasoline, and we all know how expensive that can make it.

    Eating at home? It may not be expensive now, but think back to when you were learning how to cook and all that food you wasted by burning it.

    Sex without money being transfered takes a huge time investment and money investment often in the form of tokens of affection and/or booze.
