In California, where much of EMS is through the fire department, a fire engine shows up along with the ambulance, a complete waste of time and money.
I can't see a private company doing that which gets to the nut of the problem with government services. What is referred to as "waste, fraud, and abuse" is often just a disregard for what services cost by the people providing the services. Private companies have little tolerance for that sort of thing.

What I don't get why anyone, even a pro-choicer would support someone who encourages abortions. No one likes abortions, even pro-choicers, but lily thinks "abortion = good". And then there's the whole "uncle tom" rant she went on. You do realize "uncle tom" is a bigoted comment, right? Then there's the "I'd slap my daughter if she worked at Hooters"; why do you encourage domestic violence?
I could go on and on with the sht that skank posts.
I take it you disapprove of the job Homer's doing editing Lily's posts.

I recommend you fire him.

Exactly. In the water supply case, a private company would likely charge higher rates than the city, even though they might be more efficient. Government typically has no real idea what their services cost, and rarely include pension costs in the cost of service.

Qualified to practice in that particular state.

You were complaining about low quality.

You're only definition for 'quality' was based on price.

Seems you've run into your complaint by advocating for it.

Just can't make up your mind.

Evidenced by his father getting his record for assault on an officer expunged along with his domestic violence charges that would've prevented legally owning a gun. So you think Johnson & Johnson would've funded his defense of he were considered Hispanic? You have to see things from black people eyes. The majority of white people see this type of injustice & say & do absolutely nothing. Meanwhile, it's happening to black folks on a daily basis. So, for the most part, it's you're either with me or against me! Y'all take it as racist because, you self identify the the true target of black folks frustrations. It just so happens that, the system is run by elite level white folks & the fact that most of y'all remain silent is like involuntarily siding with the elites. When I say elites, I mean from the top of the top, down to the court system where all white folks are privy to white privilege & blacks get crucified! If you're honest with yourself, you know I'm right!
zimmerman is no more white than barack obama.stop playing the victim, if a person act like a thug that person will be looked at as a thug,if a person has a record that starts in 3rd grade that person will be treated as a thug. instead of worrying and complaining about how the criminal courts treats blacks why don't you look at the real problem and teach young blacks how to behave and not commit crime.the prison system would not ave an 83%_black population if blacks did not break the law and stayed out of court in the first place.

But Galt was complaining about poor medical care based on pricing.

So by his definition, low bidders in the medical field are poor / incompetent providers.

Detroit has a population of over 700,000. That is about three-quarters of its size a decade ago...not one-third. I still say this is about breaking the unions more than it is about loss of Tax revenue.
"usa since 2013"
Population of Detroit less than 40% of population in 1960. Nearly 80,000 abandoned buildings, 9.2 billion in unfunded pension liabilities, 18 billion in accumulated debt. A true story of inept democrat leadership. That leaderships mantra, protect the unions fuckthe taxpayers.

Why not? A good idea.
Cisterns can be problematic. In urban areas, water run-off will be heavily polluted so collection only from roof-tops would be feasible. Rain washes the atmosphere during its nucleation and on it's way down. How clean is today's urban rainwater?

But where do you then place the Solar Panels? Can rooftop run-off be compatible with Solar Installations?

In suburbs and even in rural areas water run-off can be polluted with chemical over-sprays. Again, rooftop collection only.

But, again, where do you then place the Solar Panels? Under the Wind Farms shading the ground-cover causing desert fields and dust storms?

A cistern for every 100 acre farm is reasonable but a cistern on every rooftop in America shortchanges the aquifers. This cheating of the groundwater sources also happens with Municipal Storm Sewer containment designs. Aquifer depletion is a big problem across the country and especially in the Southwest....

There are no free lunches.

The host of "Fox News Sunday" Chris Wallace rebutted the suggestion made by some conservatives that President Barack Obama was stoking racial tensions by wading so deeply into the the issue of the George Zimmerman verdict on Friday.

"I thought he was trying to help both sides of the divide understand, and I thought he was especially moving when he talked about the new generation, talked about his daughters and the idea that the new generation, the upcoming generation, is better than people of our ages were in the sense they're more color blind, they don't see whites see black or blacks see whites as much of a threat," the veteran journalist said on Fox News.

"I thought he was trying to deal with it in a forthright fashion," he added. "Whether it was his race speech during the 2008 campaign or other speeches, this is when the President can be most effective. The speech he gave after the senseless shooting of Gabby Giffords in Tucson about violence in our society--Boy, I sure don't see how you can read this as in any way stoking racial tensions."
