In our article, Fluoride in Other Areas Compared to Crescent City, published on February 18, 2015, we mentioned the Mosaic Company, the company that produces hydrofluosilicic acid, the chemical used in water fluoridation.

In the news recently, after decades of environmental damage caused by hill-sized piles of acidic hazardous waste in Florida and Louisiana, one of the world’s largest fertilizer makers (Mosaic Company) has settled a massive federal lawsuit that amounts to nearly $2 billion in fixes, improvements and cleanup.

These massive piles have been involved in major pollution events for decades.

The legal agreement concerns the proper storage and disposal of more than 60 billion pounds of hazardous waste at eight facilities.

The Mosaic Company is also one of the funds that Crescent City, city employees can invest their retirement monies.

  1. Connie,

    I remember going over this stuff with you. What a mind trip this was. This is corruption, plain and simple. I saw the documents. I connected those dots as well. I remember wondering why the campaign for drinking tap water? Why not just drop the word ‘tap’ and focus on a campaign of drink water? They couldn’t deal with that, it HAD to be ‘tap water’ in the campaign. That was awfully suspicious.

    When Gini Aland went to speak up at the city council meeting, she had her microphone cut off by Mayor Kathryn Murray when Ms. Murray realized the topic of discussion was what her doctors had to say about Flouride and her health. Gini was asked to leave that day and was escorted by law enforcement out of the main area and into the hallways. Gini later went with Donna Westfall to meet with Ms. Murray later about the issue, but if memory serves me right, last minute, Murray found an excuse to miss the appointment.

    Somewhere, i still have that city council meeting video.

    When you and I poured over open documents, we finally figured it all out. Now what? What can be done to correct this problem?

  2. DID YOU EVER PLAY CONNECT THE DOTS WHEN YOU WERE A LITTLE KID? THE PICTURE WAS OFTEN THE ANSWER TO A QUESTION. WHAT SAYS I LOVE YOU BY WIGGLING THEIR TAIL AND LICKING YOU?
    I WOULD CONNECT THE DOTS ONLY TO FIND A PICTURE OF A PUPPY. I WAS ABLE TO DRAW A PUPPY, CONNECT DOTS IN NUMERICAL ORDER, ANSWER A RIDDLE, AND EXPERIENCE THE SATISFACTION OF
    ACCOMPLISHMENT.
    THE SAME SATISFACTION I HAD WHEN DONNA AND I CONNECTED THE COST OF FLUORIDE TO THE CITY AND COUNTY MADE SURE THE CITIZENS ARE REMINDED FREQUENTLY HOW WONDERFUL FLUORIDE IS FOR YOUR TEETH AND EACH MONTH AS THE CITIZENS PROPERTY TAXES PAID MOSAICS FOR MORE TOXIC WASTE TO DUMP IN THE DRINKING WATER THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT NEW THEIR RETIREMENT FUND WAS HEALTHY, EVEN THOUGH THEIR CONSTITUENTS WERE NOT.

    FEEL THE LOVE??????????????????????
    NO! I FEEL BETRAYAL, APATHY, AND A NEED FOR HONEST CARING LOCAL GOVERNMENT
    SO WHAT IS THE CONNECTION HERE. TAKE THE TIME TO FOLLOW THE DOTS, DRAW THE PICTURE, ANSWER THE RIDDLE, AND FEEL THE SATISFACTION OF HELPING FELLOW CITIZENS AVOID THE SUFFERING AND THE ATROCITIES TO THEIR HEALTH FROM DRINKING TOXIC WASTE. I AM ALSO THRILLED THAT THE LIES FROM THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT WERE EXPOSED. I HOPE THEY ARE EMPOWERED TO KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF THEIR VOTE.
