Get serious. Fifty years down the line, and still just flouride. And kids' teeth today are a hell of a lot better than mine are--I know a mid 2os girl who got ONE cavity and her parents were pissed at her. She'd have had that by 6 in my generation.

You do, of course, get tranquilizers in your water, yes, but that's because people flush their prescriptions down the toilet, so you can get a godawful mess because troglodytes like you don't want to pay for infrastructure. Read something about what people do to urban water quality.

A bad precedent was set.
In the mind of the body politic,
it legitimized medicating the public water supply.

I am certain that u DO know the difference
between the public water supply and sewer water.

Tho I remain a generally anti-tax kinda guy,
I am willing to pay taxes to keep the public water supply in good shape.

No there's no wondering who's to blame.

What I've always found funny is that it is the people who want socialized medicine who scream the loudest about fluoride in the water.....

I never changed my opinion about that.

It shows how little we can trust the judiciary
to defend us from usurpation.

Yes, David, I know the difference between drinking water and sewerage. That's why I talked about drugs in the drinking water. And no, the government's not putting them there. Fifty years, and the slope's still not slippery.

@roger,
When you hear them talking about it just ask how they feel about socialized medicine.

I've pointed out that fluoridating the water was one of the most successful public health initiatives ever undertaken by the government. Probably the most cost effective too.

@boomerang,
I'll do that, though except for this thread, I haven't heard a word about it in at least a decade.

@roger,
I wish I never had to hear about it again. It comes up every year because you have to sign your kid up to get fluoride tablets at school since they won't put it in the water. It's much better to get it in small doses throughout the day by drinking water than to take a tablet of it all at once. It really gave Mo a bellyache when he first started taking it. Rotten teeth and gum disease are problems on their own but they can lead to some very serious health issues.

I warned you not to even get me started on fluoride!

It remains my understanding
that nowhere in America (certainly not qua NYC)
is sewage discharged into the water supply.
Your link speaks of sewer water after treatment being released
back into "the environment" without being as SPECIFIC as we might have hoped.

5O years, but its still a nasty precedent, that our low-life employee
is entitled to slip us a Micky, whenever it damn pleases.

Good legislation is that which curtails & degrades jurisdiction.
Bad legislation expands jd.
America is supposed to be the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
