I agree, haven’t been to a “rave” , but listen to a lot of the music and know “artists”, D.J. and “producers”. Back in the old days they were just called “all nighters”. Don’t knock what you won’t or can’t understand.
I can still do windmills, and maybe almost come around on 2 or 3 flares. Then I would need a ride to the emergency room to put my shoulder back in place. :-)

“Palestine” is a description of the geographic area of the middle east found in early times and referenced by the Greeks and Romans about 1150 BC. The people know as Jews were from this area as well documented in scriptures and the Koran. Hence after the Nazi’s failed attempt at ethnic cleansing via the Holocost a portion of the land was awarded via the UN to displaced Jews around the world. The people who inhabit the lands outside of Isreal are refered to as Palistinians because that is where thay are squating now. They are the dregs of all Arab nations that were exiled. All they are now are terrorists. There is no bussiness they don’t own land they are beggars with their hands out to do the dirty work of other Arab nations they will never be repatriated to their original country. They are treated better by the Jews then any other Arab nation. This is the provebial “biting the hand that feeds you”.
Very we'll sad , if only the Muslims would treat each other like Israel treats them . Hey why when Israel kills seven terrorist on a boat heating to Gaza to Help the terror under falls human aid etc... But Syria and killed more Muslims last 3 years than Israel entire time . Pure hate that's there our there
Well said. Those of us who have studied the Middle East know this to be true. Only the useful idiots who are ignorant spout the left wing narrative. If you are an Arab and live in the state of Israel, you are truly treated better than any Arab nation would treat you. The so-called Palestinians are not an ethnic group. They are in fact descendants of roving Arab tribes in the Middle East who were ostracized by all other Arab nations. In recent years by the Jordanians who tired of their shenanigans and lack of civility.

I stand for the Pledge as well as National Anthem. Although, as a retired military member, I stand at attention indoors and render a salute outdoors no need to remove hat at this time just as if I never left active duty. It’s all about conditioning.

Just as bad as T-shirts diplaying Mao, Che, Stalin…
That you for your service *salute* (I'd actually do it but we don't have face time).....Bronze Star...congrats.
Nazi's are pure scum absolute scum.....liberal scum. The Nazis were a union's ultimate goal..to be in charge of everything, the UAW is getting up there, they maybe not as radical of a union but still just as ruthless.
You have that right, image was very important to them. The colors red, white and black were chosen to make the biggest splash, their uniforms were designed by the top designers of that time. Everything was staged. If they had a web page you can be assured it would be the best looking website.
I never saw much difference between the communists and the nazis but the nazis put out a better image at the time, a lot of people in our country were attracted to the nazis because they were superficial and attracted by the image. Better Homes and Garden loved Hitler, so did Time magazine and a lot of hollywood. His views on race and eugenics were well known at the time.

Sounds like voter suppression to me. Where’s all the outrage from the left?

Whether right or wrong is not for us to decide, but why should there be laws against teens consuming ETOH. I’ve been stationed and traveled Europe and this is not against the law as young as 15yrs. At 18 you can go die for your country a never have had s sip. Parenting starts at birth and enforcing moderation and not bingeing.

You are 100% correct. At the turn of the century it was mandated by that all households grow Marijanna. It has multiple uses, hemp rope for one as well as the obvious. Alcohol and tobbacco are far more damaging than any other drugs one would ingest. If it wasn’t for the big payoff from Tobbaco lobbyist it would still be legal.
FYI for all you non-medical types; this is a common procedure refered to as “dental rehab”. These parents should be refered to social services for their gross neglect. This occurs when the child sleeps with abottle and grows up not brushing …. you get the picture. The caps ptotect the roots and keeps the space open for the permenant teeth.
There are medical conditions that cause soft decay, so hold off the judgement before all medical info is given, please.
That explains why the dentist did it, it doesn't explain why the dentist didn't tell the mother he was doing it and why. It also doesn't explain why the mother was surprised to see her child's mouth after seing her. Is it the dentists failure to communicate or the parents lack of asking? I would like to know why the child was in the office with the dentist without the parent. None of my children were left alone until they were old enough to communicate properly and understand what the dr/dentist was saying or doing. My job is to be there to ask the questions and make sure everyone understands and protect my children. The dentist's job is to do the dental work after I am informed of what is needed and why. Am I too old fashioned and protective or just doing it the right way?
greenroughneck and jenny lind are correct.
I have three adopted children, and the one with the best brushing habits has the most cavities and other dental problems. There are other explanations besides parental neglect. I don't know whether neglect is the case here are not, but I'm sure you don't either.
Growing up I brushed my teeth almost obsessively, even took a tooth brush to school to brush after lunch. I flossed, I used the water pick every morning and night. My brother on the other hand brushed his teeth only when my mother noticed plaque build up and was busted, this meant he brushed once a week or so.
When we went to the dentist every six months, guess who had all the cavities? Yep, me. Every six months I had two to three cavities.
I was diagnosed with ADHD long before so I had never even tasted kool aid or soda until I was in my teens. I got cake and cookies for Christmas and my birthday. I ate lots of fresh fruits and vegetables though and still do.
Some kids just have bad teeth. If your kid needs glasses or braces does it mean you are a neglectful parent?
Seruously I have 5 kids--4 that aren't babies and one of my kids just has bad teeth. Even though we keep up with dental care she has still had 3 cavities, and she woke woke up with a broken tooth she had pulled. Now she is about to get a crown. She brushes her teeth 2x a day and flosses which is more than most adults.Luckily, the dentist sees my other kids so he knows it is just her. She does not drink any soda and she hardly drinks any juice, she did not take bottle to bed--some people just have bad mouths. My father in law who is a dental care nut says he is the same way. When we have dental work done the dentist explains everything and even gives us written explanations of everything--the real issue is she thought they were doing fillings and got this.
Did the Dentist do a poor job of communication or did the mother not pay attention? It is possible that the dentist fully explained the situation and the parent heard what she wanted?
We had a dentist in Colorado try to do this and charge us 5,000 dollars on one of my kids. We said no because they were baby teeth. His adult teeth came in fine and with no issues. It's a money maker. The same claims were made by people that his soft enamel was caused by not brushing or sleeping with a juice bottle. My kids were never given juice and their teeth were brushed. One had firm enamel and one did not. People love to judge without any of the facts. The mom should tell them to go efff themselves.
Jenny Lind is correct. Specific medical conditions may very well be the issue here...not neglect. Another prime example of jumping the gun and wanting to lower the boom on someone without having all the facts first.
Taught mine good dental hygene at an early age ... for their benefit and as an investment.
A little pre-procedure CONSULTATION goes a long way. just sayin.
BRONZESTAR...why do you disrespect the medal?
In Detroit or Philly the dental dude would have gotten proper ups for da bling.
Hey mom! Pay attention and stop texting when the dentist is talking to you about your kid!
My son had to have a full set done when he was around three. We have a long family history of week teeth. His were done in nylon caps as they would be falling out and replaced anyway. Mind you, we all have great habits with brushing and it does no good at all. Feel fortunate not to have our teeth. Reserve those kinds of comments for actual abuse please.
Agree. With one of my daughters we had similar but not nearly to this extent. When she was first getting her teeth in she insisted on breast feeding at night which caused decay. As parents we met with several dentists to discuss recommendations. In the end she received several silver caps on her baby teeth that are only slightly noticeable when she gives a big smile. No pulpectomy necessary.
1. Why didn't they see a dentist sooner? Could have prevented this level of decay.
2. Where was mom while the work was being done? Didn't they discuss it with the dentist before?
3. Their insurance may not have covered White Vaneer caps. Mine doesn't.
This is a case where fluoride and regular care would have made a world of difference. Not too late to start, though her permanent teeth are well on their way (her xrays should show level of development and whether ingested fluoride is still appropriate, they should be sealed as soon as they erupt and a topical fluoride program should be routine, through to adulthood, and beyond if necessary. Diet should be evaluated. Often it is not how much sugar is ingested, but how long a time period it stays in the mouth. Etc. etc. etc. Needs to be in the hands of a reputable pediatric dentist.
So, in short, the parent should be standing over her kid every night, making sure she's brushing her booger mouth?
Folks with medals for bravery generally don't flaunt them. If you did earn a Bronze Star, good job. But have a little class.
Calling social services is something that shouldn't be done without the provider having substantial knowledge of neglect and abuse. The consequences of calling the government in to "protect" children from parents who can't afford dental care for their kids can be catastrophic for not only the patient, but any siblings in the home as well. I would prefer a child be left with a parent who doesn't know how to brush their child's teeth than shoved into a home where rape, molestation, and abuse of all kinds are common place.
Also, you can't rush to judgment. While I don't believe this woman should take legal action, I do believe there are dentists out there that just don't care or can't communicate. Obviously he did the most cost effective thing to save the teeth. This mother definitely would be shocked at the appearance of her child being completely toothless. There are conditions that can cause this type of decay in children and adults alike. Extreme measures do need to be taken to prevent total loss. I have one of those conditions. I was shocked when I paid a dentist $40k for implants and was given faulty implants and someone else's dentures instead. I found a new provider after saving for 2 years. After another $40k, a lot of pain, and hiding for 2 years, I couldn't find an attorney to help get my money refunded, much less "damages". Mom should invest her time in making sure this gets fixed, not playing lawsuit lottery. She should be thankful her girl still h
You really want to bring in social services???? The dentist should have brought the parent back and explained the procedure to her and offered the choices of silver vs. white veneer; but really 'social services'????? Geesh!!!!!
My wife is a dental hygienist, she was AMAZED at the lack of care this girls parents have shown to her teeth. Clearly she cannot brush her own teeth and the parents can't be bothered to help. This is so sad. As a retired deputy I HATE involving any kind of Child services in peoples lives, but this a case where they obviously are not taking the time with her that should be given.
Child services has its place, but far too often they are liberal psycho-babble brown shirts.
This looks more like "plussing the sale". One of my sons had a root canal at about that age in a baby tooth and later had to have it pulled "because it wasn't falling out when it was supposed to".
That is a heck of a lot of caps for one visit!
FYI there are crooked dentists out there. A long time ago I was looking for a new dentist. Tried this one told me I had to have five fillings costing $500.00 Something was not right I thought and went to one a fellow worker told me about. Ended up I only needed one filling costing about $50.00. And that is the only filling I have ever needed since, been some 20 years.
That one evil dentist was going to fill my moth full of fillings that I did not need. He soon went out of business. There are evil minded greedy people out there!!!
The question that comes to my mind is was the doctor receiving medicaid? I ask that because I just have to ask why the cost of this procedure wasn't discussed with the mother? I have to think it wasn't cheap, and even with regular insurance, a hefty co pay would've had to have been agreed to. Then the question becomes, was the procedure necessary or was medicaid fraud involved?
Who's the baby daddy? Piers Morgan?
IT MUST HAVE BEEN A WELFARE DENTIST, AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION DENTIST
That work is a malpractice. White ceramic is what is used on exposed teeth but that dentist must have been un-qualified to use ceramics. Oh what a disaster for that poor blond blue eyed little girl. I hope they sue big time.
You speak of neglect being the cause, I would argue. My daughter and her spouse tried to do everything correct with their firstborn. They would only let her have water if she was even laying down lest she fall asleep and rot her teeth. From the very beginning her gums were cleansed when she slept with a damp washcloth per dentists advice. (I might add both sides of family were prone too tooth decay regardless of habits or dental care.) The very first tooth they began brushing, seeing it that it was only with the kind of brush a pediatric dentist recommended and in the motion recommended. The short story is she had too have all her baby teeth pulled out in the front at 2 1/2 just as several cousins did. 4 different dentists and OSU's dental clinic all told her it was an "hereditary issue" and there was no way they could get around it. Her other children she wasn't nearly so pushy about the care and they had just the normal amount of cavities for a child their age. The twins she breastfed had worse cavities than the older sister who she didn't. Again dentists cited an hereditary propensity with all them.
I had horrible teeth as a young child. We are judging something that may not be as it appears. I agree that something other than silver would have been kinder - this child will be teased mercilessly because of this.
I have seen this in children... usually welfare kids. Just saying...I've done door to door sales and worked in a ghetto bank branch. This looks like parental neglect or an overzealous dentist. Speaking of which, I used to get cavities filled every 6 months with one dentist when I was a kid after moving to a new town. We changed dentists and I haven't had a cavity since. Dentists can fill imaginary cavities...especially when the gov is paying...
I was very familiar with a toothbrush and paste as a child, I saw the dentist, did all the things one is supposed to do to keep my teeth in good shape. I lost them all anyhow. I asked my Dr. and dentist about this, they both told me that bad teeth can run in families. I know all my aunts, and cousins have dentures, most got them earlier than I did.
Whether that bad teeth "gene" thing is true or not, I don't know. Maybe someone can explain it far better than I can, I just know what went on in my family on the maternal side.
I had extremely severe GERD when I was a kid. Wiped out my teeth. Back then, GERD was about 10 years from being first studied.
