And still no movement on my proposal to have speakers play Lou Rawls when someone spins the Loo rolls.
I don't think that Randy is a very dignified name.
Powell's and Laika are two of my favorites! GO LAIKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO HARD LAIKA!
Werker? I pirate sound you!
I shut the city once... Seriously, i said no! I use to hear from him every now and again. What sucks is I was on his side. Lets save money. I can't never say what I'm talking about out loud.. BUT if DH replacement ever reads this. I got you buddy. (emoticon heart)
This is a horribly written article - almost painful to read. How did this make the cover? Was the editor on vacation?
Damn, if that's all it takes, I'm in. Even the Air Force was tougher than you guys.
You gotta be able to do at least one push up, Frank...sorry.
Hey Randy, how does one go about getting duty on that shiny new toy of a fireboat anyway?
I did not endorse Mary Nolan in her campaign for the council...either formally or informally.
Shutting down the City of Portland? I think I accidentally did that once too, they should tell more people where the breaker switch is.
I get real tired of waking up with a sore ass and a nickel in my hand. How much will Amanda see that I get paid from now on?
@Spindles - not condoning sign-stealing, but your side is into arson - check the KATU link you posted.
Oh look, an OHSU doctor was just caught red-handed stealing signs outside the headquarters of Clean Water Portland. The good doctor also works for the Oregon Health Authority, the state agency that was deliberately delaying the results of the new Oregon Smile Survey.
Adding Fluorosilicic Acid to our public water supply does nothing to address the many deep, systemic issues that have created uneven medical access and nutritional access/education/habits among poor communities. As long as the cheapest and most accessible food is processed, sugary, and nutrient deficient, and as long as our healthcare system is controlled by for-profit interests, health problems like dental caries in poor (mostly minority) communities will continue to manifest, no matter how many additional chemicals we put in the water or air.
I'm reminded of when I used to teach in high schools and saw kids show up daily with nothing but Twizzlers or other candy in their backpacks for breakfast. This is a problem fluoridation CAN'T solve.
What fluoridation DOES do, however, is increase the daily chemical load on our bodies and our ecosystem, proposing a new substance to consume and inject into our biosphere over the long term. Portland's water already has three "sanitizing" agents in it. Is making it even more of a chemical soup really the wise thing to do in this day and age? With a planet and populace already ailing from the widespread and indiscriminate use of chemical agents, we might finally begin to question the wisdom of the "better living through chemistry" panacea, and we can instead begin to consider more sustainable, deeply curative approaches to fundamentally social issues of this type.
Water and air are basic to life, free and necessary to all. Is this not reason enough to protect their purity, and to find more acute solutions to acute problems such as the one fluoridation proposes to "solve?"
There is a worldwide movement to stop forced Fluoridation of public water systems. It is successful in many communities.
My hope is that Fluoridation of public water systems will soon be a thing of the past!
Our water WILL NOT BE POISONED with toxic industrial waste, which is exactly what Fluorosilicic Acid is. Our water will not be contaminated. Get out of our water system with your drugs and industrial waste. Make your money elsewhere.
There are very likely grounds for a lawsuit if this measure passes, according to the Oregon State Bar.

Read what happened in Wichita! Victory against the MACHINE.
Find out the answers to the three questions asked by Howard Patterson, M.E.M. in the video below.
The Real Questions about Fluoridation.
#1. Does it work?
#2. Is it safe?
#3. Is it safe for the environment?

The actual science on fluoridation: its effect on salmon and the environment, efficacy for dental health, and safety for human consumption. Please watch before you vote!
Jesus get a room you two! Also after having a bad day I want to thank the person who was upset at the Mercury for "publishing under the guise of journalism". Holy fuck I needed that laugh. Also whoever pointed up that this publication's strength was witless hipster self promotion was also correct and should win something along with the 500th commenter! Oh, and I am voting no in part due to the ethics of how this is being done, and concerns in terms of overall public health. But I encourage the trolling, my this is exciting. Oh, and Mercury, you blow and...eh whatever been said already and I am still stunned there are people shocked at this,lol
