What a joke

I would be concerned with them having the information as much as having it stolen.Next it will be law to have a micro chip installed when your born just like my dogs.

What tax does everybody else in business in Maine pay that NWNA doesn't pay?They pay property taxes on the land that they have purchased.They are invested in protecting the sustainability of Aquifers on their properties,they are regulated by the State. I don't understand how people can believe the State of Maine Gov. isn't taxing any business or individual more than their fair share. Increasing taxes for whatever reason they can dream up in legislature is not going to solve Maines problems. The statement ,they don't pay for our water is ridiculous. You say your in business yourself, than you should know better than me that Maine isn't giving anybody a break unless the State is getting something out of it. I'm more concerned with trillions of dollars the current and former administations are sucking out us and our future generations than I am water NWNA is sucking out of the ground.

Tron cares

A few bucks for a bribe isn't enough for Tron.How much of a bribe does he need?Trons statements are completly false as usual.Tron is a liberal and so any business that is successful is stealing or cheating to be successful. I don't know how much NWNA pays in state, employee, fuel, property and all the other taxes, (neither does Tron) but I feel quite confident they are paying their fair share. If they were a struggling company and laying people off , making cuts in benefits and the purchase of raw materials. Than they would be in good standing with all the Trons out there. Poland Spring water is their # 1 brand. They are not going to run the state dry and move on. Besides the State of Maine monitoring the Aquifers, NWNA invests a great amont of capital in protecting the resourse as well.

Another Union pay off

Thanks once again to Maines 2 left wing Senators.The last 800 billion did so well why not another 26 billion.Republicans need to be the party of no.Otherwise this will never stop. Both parties are to blame.One has to step up and say no more.

It's not fair

Kim Jeffery makes to much money,his house is to big, he has a nice car or two, maybe even three. I don't care if he earned it. It's just not right.I know, maybe the Governor could appoint a pay Czar and he could decide his salary.That's my water NWNA is bottling for free and making billions of dollars on. They need to be taxed alot more than a penny per gallon because he's a rich a--hole and we all know all good the Maine Gov. will do with the extra money,they,ve got a great track record don't they?

Tron, you don't have to

Tron, you don't have to support Nestle by purchasing P.S. water. You can keep drinking out of the Toilet.

Tron, The reason an

Tron, The reason an overwhelming majority of P.S sold comes from elsewhere is the Population in Me. is so small compared to the states that it is sold in.Should NWNA stop selling out of state? That would be great for revenue for Me.

I believe NWNA is already

I believe NWNA is already paying more than their fair share of TAXES to the republic of Maine,not to mention what their 800 employees are paying.When is enough enough?Maine isn't just tough to do business in. It's a tough place to find a job.Even tougher to find a good paying job. Keep electing liberals (Collins & Snowe) and nothing will change.

Obamas visit, keep him

tron, we need Obama to explain to us everything that's in the bill.Over 2000 pages and all we here is 30 million more Americans will have health care and children can be covered up to 26 and the mean ins.companies can't deny anyone because of pre-exiting conditions.Well that's not quite 2000 pages. The rest of it must be how America emerges from Bankruptsy and how we are going to find new Dr's after they have gone broke because of non payments.17000 new gov. jobs for the IRS but how many more will we loose because of the burden of increased taxes on companies.(with the exception of union jobs,the union bosses cut a deal)I will admit just like congress and the Pres I don't have time to read the bill but I trust Nancy and Harry.Oh by the way,Harry will be looking for a new job maybe he can apply at IRS.
