Witches are fluroidating our water! This rambling rant about fluoride takes a turn for the seriously weird about 45 minutes in, when Dr. Stanley Monteith explains how AIDS was brought over from another dimension. In fact, as this text essay of his further explains, it was done by those Satan-worshippers in Planned Parenthood and their allies the Theosophists who have naked parties observed by UFO’s at the Georgia Guidestones, onto which are inscribed their plans to destroy most of humanity. Welcome to the wild world of Radio Liberty.

Sadly enough, I had to watch this video for my job, koeselitz.

And, yes, fenriq, I know that there's plenty of crazy out there, but ... witches? Seriously, witches and planned parenthood are behind water fluoridation? Because, you know, no one has more influence on the U.S. government than them.

It just struck me as particularly *crazy* crazy. Witches. And Fluoride.

So, if all of these things are true, why is the US public health service promoting water fluoridation?

Well, of course there's one explanation. And that is that the atomic energy needed to enrich uranium -- after all, we had to win the Second World War -- and they had to lie to the American people that the industrials, industries, in America faced tremendous losses, and so we had to change the perception of fluoride: we had to make this industrial poison be a panacea; we had to change the perception of the problem.
What?

Flunkie, I have a part-time day job which is, roughly speaking, reporting on theories and developments in alternative medicine. It means a lot of non-mainstream stuff gets sent my way.

A few days ago a reader made a comment about chemtrails and sylphs, and I've been idly wondering how long it will take before I am required to write a serious and scholarly-sounding essay about them.

posted by Flunkie at 10:23 PM on January 5, 2007


Flunkie, I think that may refer to the use of fluorine in the uranium enrichment process. Uranium is generally mined, refined, fluorinated, transported as UF6, and then converted to UO2 during fuel rod assembly. So, for every mole of uranium, they capture and liberate six moles of fluorine. I suppose it's possible that some of the fluorine ends up in tap water, but I don't know nor think it cause for concern.

So, um, what do these people drink?

Is bottled water non-fluoridated?

Or maybe they buy houses with their own wells?

Or are there defluoridation methods that your typical average everyday Joe can perform?
posted by Flunkie at 10:26 PM on January 5, 2007


Distillation, maybe. Though, if you have a still, you'd be better off distilling something tastier.

Seriously, fluoride is bad for you. And the kind of fluoride that is put into most municipalities water supplies is not regulated for purity - it's whatever sludge Alcoa puts into a truck with a logo of a shiny happy molar on the side.

Personally, I only drink pure rain water or grain alcohol.

Actually, many people in the anti-fluoridation movement tend not to like distilled water, because they think distillation changes the structure of water in harmful ways. Although apparently it's OK if you distill the water to get rid of the fluoride, then put it in a clear glass container, add a few minerals, and leave it out in the sunshine for a day.

Reverse osmosis filtration or activated alumina defluoridation filtration seems to be what is recommended, using stuff way more powerful than a regular water filter ... the kind of thing that costs multiple hundreds of dollars to install, although I've heard you can also make your own out of a kit for cheaper.

I don't know if you still need to add minerals and let it sunbathe after filtration, though.

Looks like I'm going to have to deny some of you folks my essence.

Seriously the history of fluoride in America is some crazy shit, it's always been the classic wingnut hobbyhorse, but there are some very real and bizzare aspects of the story that are entirely real. It's like the Kennedy assassination in that there are enough strange things going on to cause nutters to really have something to obsess about. Keep watching the skies!111!!!

I don't understand why they stopped at fluoride. Why not put cortizone in the drinking water to prevent itching? And how about Tylenol, so people don't get so darn many headaches? And why should kids line up to get flu shots, lets put vaccines in the water supply too! In fact, let's just pour all the medicines we know about in the water supply and that way we cure everybody of everything!

And while we're at it, let's put money in the water supply to fight poverty! And ground-up books, to fight ignorance!

Well sure it sounds crazy if you just say it like that - Witches poisoning us with fluoride and conspiring with the Satanic people at planned parenthood and the UFOs to destroy humanity. But if you follow the money it all comes together. This ludicrous juxtaposition is done on purpose. Anyone stumbling upon the truth will immediately reject it as crazy. Just as folks have here. This lets them carry out their plans in plain sight.

Once again my impulses to re-read The Illuminatus Trilogy synchro-taneously creeps dangerously close to the beardos of my favorite community blog.

Radio Liberty is obviously another mask of the Illuminati, just like every other weirdo that feels the need to broadcast his oddness on such a scale.

WAKE UP, PEOPLE.

p.s. i too drink distilled water only. I will neither confirm nor deny that I am a witch.

There are plenty of industrial applications for fluorine, just ask DuPont or Dow. Is there some evidence somewhere that uranium production creates such a glut that there's nothing for it but to dump it in municipal drinking supplies? Seems like if "they" needed to dump it, they'd rather dump it in some out-of-the-way place, say, the North Slope, or Micronesia. Less explaining that way.

Preventing dental caries has a beneficial effect on quality-of-life and lifespan. Sure, fluorine is nasty stuff, but that's diatomic fluorine, or hydrofluoric acid. Most flourine compounds are exceedingly stable, and not terribly bioactive. What's special about tooth enamel is all that exposed calcium, which fluorine adores. Enamel is so hard in part because it has calcium fluoride in it.

Obviously, there is room for debate about the desirability of fluoridated water, and there are other ways to fight tooth decay. What's utterly loony is the idea that witches are somehow responsible. I can't think of anyone less likely than witches to approve of adding industrial by-products to public drinking water.

Hmmm...maybe the Flouride does something to the water so that when concerned citizens throw suspected witches into it, they sink, or float, or whatever it is proves you aren't a witch.

That said, I know for sure that Granny Weatherwax has never attended a naked party.

bugbread, you live in Japan, right? So I can actually almost believe that you really do have a milk tap and that the cereal really does come premixed.

I grew up drinking rainwater, but my parents were obviously witches because they gave us flouride tablets to 'strengthen our teeth'. So far their witchcraft has kept my teeth cavity-free, so it must be an effective form of witchcraft.

A Thousand Baited Hooks : "So I can actually almost believe that you really do have a milk tap and that the cereal really does come premixed."

Heehee. No, I wish. There are only about 8 or 9 cereals in all Japan: a few granola/meuslix cereals, Special K, Corn Flakes, and three or four sweetened cereals. That's it. No Cheerios, no Rice Krispies, nothin', let alone multiple flavours of Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or the like. You could fit a box of every type of cereal that is sold in this country on one shelf in your kitchen cabinet, with plenty of room left over.

(Actually, that's one of the first things I did when I went back to the US for Christmas vacation: buy cereal)

I also grew up drinking natural water, and my mother did give me floride drops. I've never had a cavity, nor have I broken a bone. And I sink like a rock if we stop dogpaddling when I'm swimming. I also chew ice cubes and break bricks with my elbows.

It is, however, a little annoying that I can never get a good night's sleep, what with the glowing.

Gah, people, people, fluoride is what you get when you remove an electron from a fluorine atom.

Flourine is probably what you get when you remove an electron from a particle of flour, but I couldn't find it in my IUPAC nomenclature guide.

I do envy you fluorotics: I have several polymer fillings and one gold/ceramic onlay. A friend who got the whole gel/drops/etc. treatments has never had a cavity in his life. Jerk.

oats, if it makes you feel better - I got the whole 9 yards of fluoride treatments and a mouth full of fillings. Though the latter may have been caused by eating witches.
