Outstanding -- ties the Arab Spring rebellions to the Mexican Revolution and Occupy Wall Street, showing how dictatorship and revolution rocks patriarchal families as much as oppressive governments. The cast developed this play through improvisations, and it's surprisingly funny given the theme. Great singing, too.
@Spindles, you do a good job of making your claims sound reasonable, but anyone who looks up your citations will find that you are distorting every single point. Jut the first two: Politifact ruled your claim that flouridation uses "toxic waste products of industry" as false.
Then you cite ""Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA's Standard (2006)". Bullshit. This study says directly that it is NOT talking about flouridation levels -- 0.7 to 1.2 ppm - but about the handful of communities where naturally occurring flouride is 4-5 times higher than this, 4 ppm or more. You are lying through your teeth.
One more thing -- for people who bring up Europe not flouridating water as much any more. That's because most European companies now flouridate their salt, or their milk. You could look it up you know.
What a great place for conspiracy collecting! Payoffs to the Mercury, of all papers -- industrial giants who want to sneak poison in your water cause ... just evil I guess, even Nazis themselves (in a classic 1950s bit from the John Birch society).
Before you watch all these YouTube clips against flourides, ask yourself a simple question -- if flouride was so dangerous, why would dentists and city officials want to put in THEIR OWN water, that they drink? If it's so dangerous, how come it's been used in every other major city in America for DECADES, but the antis can't show a single person harmed by it? I mean, that's hundreds of millions of people over decades....
Aestro -- Virginia Jones (the 'punky one' who is great though more gothy really) moved to L.A., which is why she doesn't work at Helium these days.
Whoever wrote this apparently doesn't know that a woman books the openers and open mic at Helium.
Russ Meyer: so your knowledge and research tells you that 90% of American doctors and dentists want to add industrial waste poison to the water that they themselves drink, because something something corporations. OK, that makes good sense.
But here's the thing. Portland's one of the few American cities that hasn't been flouridated for a long time. If hundreds of millions of people have been drinking poison for decades, where are they hiding all the bodies?
Thx in advance,
Just to confuse matters further, the reason much of Europe has stopped flouridating water is that they add flouride to their salt (France, Germany, Switzerland) or milk (UK, Russia, Macedonia).
Glad you could play an Internet comment troll to crap all over a well written column. How original. Maybe you could get a gig as a YouTube commenter? Except you'd then have to come out and say which side of the issue you actually support, and you seem incapable of doing that for all your snotty, superior cavilling.
