Dunning’s on another planet

By
From page A6 | November 15, 2013 |

Well, well, well … looks like Dunning laid a goose egg in his prognostication of the Stanford/Oregon game. Here is what he said in the Oct. 31 edition of The Enterprise:

“This week’s picks are as follows:

“OREGON over STANFORD (Nov. 7) … yes, this game isn’t until next Thursday, but neither team plays this weekend in order to be fully prepared for this long-anticipated showdown. There have been only a handful of teams in college football history as deep and talented as these Ducks. Stanford is capable, but Oregon is on another planet.”

Another planet is right and that is where Dunning must have been when he make this boneheaded call.

And after you hear what I am going to tell you about what folks at the American Public Health Association annual meeting in Boston this past week had to say about Dunning and his chatter on fluoride and the good people supporting it, you’ll know that Dunning has been inhabiting another planet! Be it Venus or be it Mars, I wonder?

    I get the feeling that if Dunning's position on fluoridation were the same as the letter writer's, Mr. Troidl would not be quite so upset that Bob's prediction of the Oregon-Stanford football game was incorrect.

    Look, if Bob likes his Ducks, he can keep his Ducks, whatever score he needs for his peace of mind. Nobody will take that away from him. Period. Perhaps if Bob had invested his time and all of the trouble to earn an MBA, Ph,D and Master of B.S. to tag after his name to advertise on everything he wrote, he would have known of the mis-communication system designed and implemented to divert attention from anything of real substance. This upper education teaches one that diverting any issues which may arise is know as The Duck, is an acquired skill, using a call taught only in the best Universities. We have Senior Healthcare issues; "Look! A burned-out streetlight!" We have a serious problem with Obamacare; "Look! Over there! Let's have some fun and flush hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of flouride down the toilet and water our lawns with it, we can afford it!!" The real Issue here is, Bob will never know what's good for him and his family or not, until he agrees with "The Healthcare Professional Impose-It-On-All of Davis!!!"

    One might think twice about taking advice from a Healthcare Professional who constantly forces his pro-government intrusion views into our lives with his socialist opinions regarding what's good and not good for everyone else but himself. Who else besides Mr. Flouride might be mistaken as The Pillsbury Dough-Boy after a thirty-day donut binge? Certainly not a positive image for a "Healthcare Professional." Try to back away from the trough and get some excercise, you'll improve your own cardio health and you can buy as many bottles of flouride as you wish...

    Rich Rifkin and R. Johnson are onto something here.

    Be careful who you take Healthcare advice from, there are those in the local "Government Trained Healthcare Profession" in Davis who are much too self-serving and wish not to upset their own rice bowl. Barack Obamacare is not Healthcare, it's a giant ponzi-scheme. Obama is not as advertised, connect the dots. Anyone with eyes and ears not clouded by partisanship knows that Obama is a fraud with a hidden past, armed with an agenda to radically change America.
