Legislature Agrees to Study Whether Communists Are Behind Fluoride in the Water

Posted By on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 at 2:37 PM

So everyone knows water fluoridation is a communist plot to undermine public health. Or possibly our own government is putting fluoride in our water to make the people more docile and controllable. Either way, you can count on our legislature to step up to the plate on this one to strike a blow for liberty.

Bills to curtail fluoridation of the water supply were the topic of debate today in the House Business & Utilities subcommittee. The Democratic Party’s very own little kook—Memphis Rep. John DeBerry—presented his legislation to give people the right to vote on the issue. He said it’s the third time he’s introduced an anti-fluoride measure.

“It keeps coming back because folks who are concerned about this issue keep coming back wanting it to be brought up so they can be heard about something they consider to be an injustice as far as chemicals being forced upon them in their water,” he said.

“This is about fluoride being forced on them in their water. The buck’s got to stop somewhere. Nobody wants to take responsibility to say, yes, we’re the ones who said put the fluoride in people’s water. The feds say we didn’t do it. The state didn’t do it. The locals didn’t do it either. So evidently private concerns are making decisions to force chemicals upon people and make them ingest them. Whether it’s positive or negative or good or bad, that’s argumentative.”

Rep. Charlie Curtiss, D-Sparta, defended DeBerry’s basic premise.

“There’s nothing wrong with putting it in the people’s hands. The people are the ones who sent us here. The very same people that you’re talking about having a referendum are the ones who put us here where we’re at,” Curtiss said, failing to make anyone feel better about this idea.

The subcommittee decided to consign that bill, as well as couple of other anti-fluoride proposals from Rep. Susan Lynn, R-Mt. Juliet, to summer study. That’s a polite way to kill legislation but, clueless as ever, DeBerry seemed to think it wasn't a ruse at all. He said it was House Speaker Beth Harwell’s idea. We bet it was.
