Reply to rant about future of USA – I feel lucky to be of age where I will not live to see the country destroyed by a fascist, anti-democratic, anti-intellectual, amoral, authoritarian Republican Party in pursuit of a neo-feudal society of peasant serfs and corporate lords.
Reply to rant about future of USA – Final destruction of the country? The beauty of America is that it can change. We’ve amended our beloved Constitution 27 times so far with progressive ideas. Without change, we’d still be a country of unregulated capitalist slavers.
Two school districts oppose Ducey nixing quarantine rules – They should! Has the governor noticed the rise of the delta variant and its new path of destruction, should we not get this virus under control. We need real leadership, not pandering to ignorance and misinformation for political purposes.
