It seems to be the spirit of this dark season to autocratically demand results even though rationality and science themselves say the outcomes are more harmful to societal and long term economic best interests.

NBC News ran with this headline, “White House press secretary: ‘The science should not stand in the way of schools fully reopening.’” Wait, what? Excuse me?

If the science says you must not do something, you assert a right to do otherwise? And if this right conflicts with my enlightened best interests and my Universal Human Rights, what then? Then you realize how preposterously out-of-line, exposed, and actionable the position has become for those of us who actually live in the real world, Earth, where physics and biology don’t kowtow to hard right ideology.

What is this madness? This is a kind of madness, and it is a clear and present danger to us all. This government is completely non-credible until it has been re-established that a police that impacts millions or hundreds of millions of individuals must be founded on rationality and pursue enlightened best interests for the overwhelming majority.

Otherwise, this is literally one of those rare situations where we seem to have a depraved act of madness and everyone is frozen like a deer in the headlight, hesitant to accept that we must now collectively take necessary and sufficient action to remove this threat whether it is in State or Federal office. This is intolerable and something must now be done to neutralize the thread, contain the madness, and debrief the people who have become confused.

To keep things orderly and lawful, appoint a People’s Custodian of the State until elections can be restored to credibility from corrupting influences such as money shouting down speech or corporations fraudulent purporting to have not just citizens’ rights but more-equal-than. An election based upon lies and gaslighting lacks legitimacy.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
