More teabagger insanity:
The Pinellas County Commission will meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday with the drinking water fluoridation issue — and its polarized sides — primed for debate again.
While the board is supposed to decide only when to shut off the fluoride from going into water, Commissioner Ken Welch said Monday that he has another plan.
“I’m going to ask the prevailing side to reconsider their vote,” said Welch, a supporter of fluoride.
The board voted 4-3 last week to stop the 7-year-old practice, despite warnings from dentists that fluoride in drinking water is safe and effective fighting cavities.
The majority — Commissioners Nancy Bostock, Neil Brickfield, John Morroni and Norm Roche — sided with fears of big government and fluoride-related maladies.***
“Water fluoridation is not much different than sending a fluoride Gestapo around every day to force everyone to take fluoride pills, it is unethical and doctors who advocate this are in violation of peoples rights and ethics,” David Jackson wrote.
As commenter El Cid points out, these teahadists really are just crazy old-school Birchers.
