Greater Raleigh Resistance
For 12 months members of the loosely-knit alliance for the promotion of liberty known as Greater Raleigh Resistance have taken the assertion of personal sovereignty, property rights, and basic freedom to our Raleigh City Council. While some successes have been measured, like Raleigh’s discontinuing membership in ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability), other blatant violations of basic human freedom and natural rights have continued to pour forth from Raleigh’s policy faucet like so much toxic waste laden water.
This month’s Freedom Lovin’ Fluoride Fightin’ Tuesday, August 6th, brought Mr. Rocco Piserchia, Ms. Katie Haberman, and myself, Marcus Hill, to the fore. All members of a body who have twice unanimously voted to continue purchasing and adding Potash Corporation’s toxic waste to the municipal water supply were present, except for Councilor Bonner Gaylord (running unopposed for his District this election cycle). The Council was in high spirits, it seemed, anticipating the easy step forward towards securing both a $100million and a $70million bond to use in accordance with UN Agenda21 dictates.
With only 3 minutes to address the Council, the focus of our presentations were necessarily tightened. Rocco Piserchia was up first and, with laser precision, cut apart the specious arguments for the consolidation of the power over resources (including land use, water, energy, human, etc.) known as the United Nations Agenda21, the Agenda for the 21st Century, to which Raleigh celebrates adherence. Before thanking her “royal majesty,” Mayor McFarlane, for the audience, Mr. Piserchia demanded honesty about policy objectives and the hypocrisy of sustainability in a city that adds neurotoxins to the water supply while contracting for mercury-laden light bulbs. His petition for honesty in a public forum was dismissed by the current administration.
Causal relations are typically important in determining the introduction of a chemical compound into the human body. Katie Haberman stood second and asked the Council to make use of their electronic devices to verify the information she presented. After expertly outlining the differences between the toxic waste fluorides (commonly sodium fluoride) added to the water supply and the beneficial mineral calcium fluoride, Ms. Haberman cautioned the Council that a wave of litigation could rise up as more and more studies verify adverse health effects. With a callous lack of consciousness, the Raleigh City Council turned its back on the growing tide of concern over water fluoridation.
For the 12th time, I, Marcus Hill, stood before the Raleigh City Council to demand an end to grievous violations of the basic freedoms and natural rights of all of Raleigh’s citizens. I stood to demand an end to the introduction of hexafluorosilicic acid; what could easily be classified as a chemical weapon (just research the myriad adverse health effects). I rose to continue trumpeting, in defiance of the UN Agenda21, the sanctity of personal property rights and of the right of the individual to defend themselves. The limitations of time narrowed my focus to a single question for the person elected to be my representative on the Council. I asked Councilor from District C, Eugene Weeks, “Why do you choose to add what could easily be classified as a chemical weapon to the water supply?”
Mr. Weeks mumbled a desire not to answer and was quickly saved from answering by Mayor McFarlane who reminded me of my time constraints.
Councilor John Odom, always a staunch defendant of fluoridating the City of Raleigh’s water with the hazardous toxic waste of the world’s largest phosphate mining company, seized the opportunity to build a straw man argument commonly used in defense of adding the chemical weapon to the water. Why add a chemical weapon to the water supply? Odom asserts, “One of my reasons is…”
Is there anything reasonable about his argument?
Councilor Mary Ann Baldwin showed her ignorance of the topic by attempting to rebut the fact that Europe does not fluoridate but has no more, but in many cases less, cavities than the United States with an unresearched “that’s not true.” We can quickly show her it is true by quoting any of the studies presented here: http://www.fluoridealert.org/studies/caries01/ . Councilor Baldwin quickly laughed off the comparison of fluoridated to non-fluoridated communities as “besides the point.”
The point is the chemical weapon Councilor Baldwin and the entire Council voted twice to continue adding to the water does not do what they claim it does, but does cause numerous problems against which their ignorance or laughter does not protect them, or you!
