Please be aware that all the name-calling is in fact a framing technique that is being used to vilify those who are against water fluoridation. This is being done because the pro side does not have any real data to stand on so it's the old game of shoot the messenger. These terms have been used and abused for a long time.
The Framer's Lexicon:
"Tin Foil Hat"
"Cherry Picked Data"
Also use of the Internet is being used against people (see "copy pasta"), however, that one is pretty frail since we are all on the Internet these days including the scientific papers. If someone doesn't have the data or misrepresents the facts, then it would make sense that they would fear the Internet where information is readily available. I don't see the pro fluoride lobby using Morse code or pony express, so that one is obviously full of holes.
(I had to look up tin foil hat. It is a pop culture icon originating from science fiction stories and movies dating back to 1927. The military likes to use that one a lot, go figure.)
How about a smooth move that's better than Ex Lax? Let's flush the rest of these Wiener people and their big industrial chemical polluter money out of our lives for good. Vote no.
You have the first one backwards. Fluoridation is the pet project of the pro-fluoride lobby which was zealously adopted by "Railroad" Randy Leonard and the rest of our bribe-accepting, tax-and-spend City Commissioners. The 5 to 7 million dollar initial cost would likely present some very lucrative contracts to Randy's cronies, never mind our skyrocketing water bills. Here's an easy prediction: Randy Leonard's totalitarian vision of the entire city caving to his every whim will not come to pass.
This is a comment about this weeks paper in general. I hope you folks can fix your errors soon so you don't have to keep operating in "Safe Mode". The tiny typewriter fonts and under-pixellated graphics are hard on the eyes.
