I really love the Internet, it has made it possible to see more made up garbage in a few hours, than one could formerly see in a lifetime. It has made responsible journalism Jell-O and less than responsible journalism, taken seriously. Fact checking and organ grinders with monkeys are now long gone and obsolete. Within 24 hours of Maya Angelou's passing, I read the following" twice:

"Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option." ~ Maya Angelou

Sorry, but that was Mark Twain, but that is but an example our current Internet world. Hey, but everyone does it! That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. In pre-Internet days such ineptitude's were relegated to the backwaters of the Crazyville River, but with Internet paddle in hand, they push-off into mid-channel in their tin foil canoes.

Now, I'm not a scientist, nor have I done any serious clinical study of fluoride. My data is purely anecdotal, from fifty years experience with fluoride in the water supply. The detractors insist fluoride is poison and dangerous, or that there is some sort of dark cabal at work trying to poison the human race, so they can take over the world.

My father was raised without fluoride in his drinking water. He had above average intelligence, fathered three children, had trouble with his teeth and died at age eighty. I was raised with fluoridated water and toothpaste; I have above average intelligence, had no problem fathering two children and have good dental health, considering my economic status. But fluoride is marked a poison on the package they insist. Yes, so is iodine. Iodine is also toxic, but they put small amounts of it in table salt. Drinking small amounts of water is good for you, spending an hour at the bottom of the pool is not.

Men never went to the Moon! It was all staged in Hollywood! Except, there were contracts and contractors, paid hundreds of millions of dollars to build space craft with the intent of flying to the moon. I've seen the space craft and sat in them; I've seen the flight simulators, the space suits and read the mission plans. Bar none, this would be the most amazingly complicated fraud ever perpetrated on humanity. It would involve tens of thousands of people. Not just to fake the flight, but to invent a fake lunar rover to fake driving around on the surface of the fake moon. Plus, NASA had to find a way to fake putting a laser reflector on the surface of the real moon.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
