We might be able to adjust to an anti-intellectual administration but what about one that is antagonistic to science? And to the recognized findings of such? Or do you still believe that the earth is flat? Sure looks flat out here on the desert — it could be flat and round. (But not flat and spherical.) What is your true belief?
Now, what about my rights? I am a citizen (old, but nonetheless registered to vote) and I always vote, even in the little local elections. Am I not entitled to hear and read actual news that has been vetted by someone for facts rather than Kellyanne’s alternative news and facts? Maybe we need a new amendment to the Constitution with qualifications for presidency. I know there is one about age. I assume that what the founders were after here was to make sure that this person was an adult in every sense of the word. However, as we have all learned, age is not a good determinant of being a grown-up. For some people it takes much more than that — it might even take a DNA transplant — but I don’t think that is legal yet.
Enough of this. I am sure you get my drift. And I still have the question I started with. Any ideas? Best regards to everyone.
