On February 6, 2000, The Dispatch misreported what I said about water fluoridation.
I am not "still fighting fluoride." I retired from the political controversy years ago, although I have co-authored scholarly articles on the subject, including an article last year in the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law at Florida State University, which, for those interested, can be obtained on the internet. Nor did I say that the American public will eventually come to see the dangers of fluoride. The "American public" is a news media fiction, which does not really exist, and "thinks" what the news media say it "thinks."
What I did say is that the systematic lies of the government of the United States on water fluoridation are no different from the systematic lies of the government of the United States about the murder of JFK, the Vietnam War, and Iran-Contra affair, the Gulf War, TWA flight 800, the Mena connection, Ruby Ridge, Waco, the murder of Vince Foster, the murder of Ron Brown, and the Kosovo War, not to mention Clinton's grand jury testimony.
The other thing I said, which The Dispatch conveniently omitted, is that the union of lawyers, scientists, and engineers at the United States Environmental Protection Agency unanimously passed a resolution on July 2, 1997, stating that water fluoridation causes cancer, genetic damage, bone pathology, and neurological injury in man, although the bureaucrats at USEPA are continuing to peddle lies about water fluoridation as federal bureaucrats have done routinely for the last five decades.
The mark of American history in the second half of the 20th century has been government lies, reinforced by the news media owned by the same interests as control our government.

A natural gift
I once believed, as a youngster, that giving was something our parents forced us to do. Not because of having the courage to do those special tasks alone, without being told about them. Nonetheless, it felt good whenever helping someone and afterwards, feeling like it was certainly worth the effort. Then, showing appreciation toward whoever suggested us, to accomplish such a wonderful event.
I can remember as a young child, being rewarded by my grandmother, also her best friend, for doing the simplest jobs for them. Grandma and Florence provided home-baked goodies such as chocolate chip cookies, fresh from the oven, my favorite candy, or an ice cream float. I believed I had become a "Queen for the Day." They treated everyone kind enough to help them, with the greatest gift of all, their love. They made you feel like the greatest person in this world, also created a feeling of wanting to continue helping many, many others.
I certainly miss Grandma and also Florence, since they have passed on several years ago now. However, their years of showing love and affection they had planted in so many people's lives, are a solid belief and it's very alive, where helping others as adults and teenagers in our family, has suddenly increased because it comes naturally as if grandma and Florence are in our hearts forever. Each day brings joy over being kind to someone, to do those special things that make our lives more happier, and joyful.
