Heinz smacks down Christy's list of dumb COVID questions

Supervisor Matt Heinz is starting to take the gloves off and put up a fight against efforts to downplay the severity of COVID-19. Even if it's just to force a political cost for aiding the virus, it's time for a fair fight and not more ignored science lessons.... Read more»

And Christy the car dealer wasn’t exactly what you’d call an honest broker.
I made the mistake of buying one car from him ....

I applaud Matt Heinz and his bold dialogue.  He has firsthand knowledge of what the doctors, nurses, and other providers see every day in the ICU.  He also knows what many Tucson families are grappling with (either healing or in mourning), and has every right to speak frankly. 

Unvaccinated folks are akin to parents who smoke around their kids or who wish they could still chain-smoke indoors: they significantly increase the chances of hospitalization and death for those around them. That is why we put mandates in place (i.e. the Clean Air Act) to allow all people access to healthy air.  If people who were infected with Covid exhaled carbon monoxide or rat poison instead, wouldn’t you feel differently?

Steve Christy has the same broken record arguments that were once spewed by fellow Republicans Kelly Ernby, who died at 46, or H. Scott Apley, who died at 45.  Yes, both died of COMPLICATIONS. Wake up Steve.  Educate yourself a little bit.

I really appreciate your viewpoints and writing style Mr. Morlock and I read pretty much every word that I get sent of yours from the Sentinel.  I’m a duck squeezing liberal in most every thing but in this article you made me realize the rope Christy is walking in representing -every- repub in the valley.
  You know what though?  If my job seemingly required me to give credence to and spread lies upon lies that demonstrably kill people and hugely damage our Institutions then I’d quit.
Keep up the great work!

Sorry, we missed your input...

Supervisor Matt Heinz is ready to rumble against 'junk science' he says his colleague Steve Christy is spreading. Christy says he's just the voice of his constituents.

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.
