Wow, this has to be the most ignorant person written about in this paper since The Great Sunnyside Window Massacre of October 2008
Good piece, but not surprising to me. It is shockingly easy to trick the state, or buy fake greed cards, ID's, DHS cards etc. This person should be receiving mental help, not that it would prevent this but there are clear issues
"Lewis, it would transpire, had stolen the card."
YUCK EDIT THAT SHIT SON
i wish the world government would drop a chemical from the stratosphere that would sterilize a generation of the population. this would ease so much strife and pollution. eventually we could get back to makin' bacon but why not take a break for awhile?
Interesting article Erik. Thanks for posting! I'm excited for the genre to expand. It's been a life-long favorite, so it's encouraging that we may get -good- movies out of the genre in the next few years.
I also think that while WoW is losing users (1.5m user drop in 2012), those folk are seeking out other fantasy products to scratch that itch. I've ran into a lot of former WoW players in the last 2 years that are relentlessly pursuing gaming, writing and other properties in the Fantasy genre.
Narcissism is so awesome.
@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.

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
"Fluoride is a toxic molecule that wreaks extensive, often irreversible, havoc on the body. The thyroid is particularly affected by fluoride exposure because its store of iodine is depleted. Iodine deficiency depresses the thyroid's metabolic and immune functions, resulting in hypothyroidism and lowered immunity.
Unlike iodine, which the body cannot store long-term, fluoride is a problematic and persistent toxin. Its effects are systemic and only about half of what is ingested can be excreted; the rest is stored in bones and tissues, blocking access to other elements, like iodine.
Fluoride and iodine are both halogens. Fluoride, the negative ion of the element fluorine, easily displaces iodine in the body because it is much lighter and therefore more reactive.
Fluoride exposure can come from multiple obvious and not-so-obvious sources. In addition to dental hygiene products and drinking water, many breakfast cereals, juices from concentrate, soda and other processed foods contain alarming levels. Fluoride-containing pesticide use means that the environment is being flooded with fluoride by conventional agriculture (http://www.fluoridealert.org/f-pesticides.htm). Also, many antidepressants contain large amounts of fluoride and are widely prescribed, often for a lifetime of use.
Lack of iodine shuts down production of thyroxine, the thyroid prohormone that controls metabolism, and, in one way or another, impacts every aspect of health.
But the action of iodine in the thyroid is not limited to metabolism; it also has an important immune function. If the thyroid is deficient in iodine, a critical step in immunity will be reduced or eliminated." Marianne Leigh

More synonyms in that entry: healing, elixir, placebo, treatment
Fluoride is also an elixir, a placebo and a treatment by your logic.
I need to clarify what an ad hom attack is for you btw. It would have been an ad hominem if I would have said "well your opinions don't matter because you're a troll." Asking if you're participating in behavior that is like a troll is not an attack on your credibility. It's a question about your intent.
You'll find a word there that starts with d. Maybe thesaurus.com is in on the conspiracy as well!
Fluoride in the water is being used for EXACTLY the same purpose as that link.
It's a legitimate question given you won't respond to a single refutation against your evidence.
Anyway. Let's recap.
1. Europe isn't a progressive hive mind
2. That Chinese study wasn't in a controlled environment
3. Lobbyists aren't inherently evil and neither are PACs. (Unless you consider lobbying for the Umatilla and emergency room doctors evil.)
4. Your definition of drug is bizarre and unfounded.
Since you haven't refuted anything up there, I win!
@Home said: "tcraighenry: Are you for real? druginfo/meds is in the url. The first section id 'Why is this medication prescribed?' WTF?"
Yup, WTF, indeed. Why, when it talks about products labeled as medications with fluoride in them, do you then call fluoride a drug. You're making a leap that your link doesn't support.
"I was refuting the statement "fluoride is not a drug." Which is a common, and intentional error, on the pro side."
No, you didn't refute anything. Nowhere in that link is fluoride called a drug, which is what you're claiming it is. The pro side isn't making an error in pointing this out and you have yet to support your claim to the contrary. It seems the common and intentional error lies in your argument, not the argument on the pro side.
"It is being used as a drug - the NIH agrees."
No, it is being used in products labeled as medications. It is *this* specific definition that NIH agrees with. They do *not* call it a drug, as you do.
"I know the pro side hates it being called a drug, because then you can say it forced medication, and be entirely accurate. Still that pesky thing called the truth."
No, the pro side sees the ridiculous idea of calling a mineral a drug because it isn't a drug. You need it to be falsely labeled a drug for your argument about "forced medication" to have any weight, which it does not.
Is adding iodine to salt forced medication, too? Do you even know why iodine was added to salt?
So, yes, about the pesky thing called truth. You don't seem to be working with much of it on your side.
