    Fluoride in water is one of those services we provide for the lower income people.
    The sad, face-palming hilarity of liberals from Portland, OR to Davis, CA standing cheek and jowl with Cold War John Birchers makes one chuckle.... until one realizes how disturbingly symptomatic the thinking is, and how congruent it is with other attacks on the very idea of a public good.

    Pensions? Nah, my portfolio is doing aces. Single-payer health care? No way! I've got great insurance! Vaccines? Why? My kid doesn't have pertussis! Fluoride? Why would I want to participate in something the CDC calls one of the top 10 public health triumphs of the twentieth century? Don't you take your kids to the dentist every six months and ensure they have nightly access to high-quality mouthwash?

    Gods. These people.
