Re: “'Mission Fit'

Opening service jobs, including the casinos, without a universal public healthcare system in place or hazard-pay is unconscionable.

Re: “'Mission Fit'

It's hard to imagine the pressure of officials who don't have to work in service jobs decreeing it's ok to reopen them while also preparing cots, side by side at Redwood Acres for the potential fallout.

Government has a long history of protecting the interests of "business" over human health including using the working poor as Guinea Pigs.

For God's sake, how difficult is it to utter the words, "single-payer healthcare" during a time that working family's desperately need it?

Re: “Policing the Police

Thank you for the reminder that our rural community has more than our share of wrongful police shootings. Don't be afraid to list all their names with some background. Why would a city police officer chase a truant 16 year old by himself, claiming the kid "pulled a knife" before shooting him dead? (Burgess).

The unprovoked killing of McClain in his own front yard was the first case to be heard at the new federal courthouse at the McKinnleyville airport. Damages are often based on the victim and survivor's economic class, ie, "lost earnings potential".

Cities are only now beginning to reevaluate 50% of their budget going to municipal police untrained in handling mental health issues, addiction, homelessness and kids, causing fatal consequences and recurring lawsuits, plus the high cost of military equipment and updating officer training in its use.

For what?

City policing remains predominantly traffic citations, vagrancy, domestic abuse and petty theft. Many city police in industrialized nations are not armed and must call for "backup" in those rare occasions. The 16 year-old above might still be alive had the officer called for backup.

Give police football helmets and padding to wear, take away the umpires and someone's going to get tackled.

Re: “Triggers and Clusters

Without universal healthcare or hazard-pay, the reopening is premature.

Desperate families are being forced back to work in poverty-wage jobs lacking health insurance under threat of losing meager unemployment benefits to face careless, unmasked customers...a risk that will never be known by the "authorities" making these unethical decisions.

It's unprofessional, unscientific and immoral.

They might as well be sending Canaries into a mine to see what happens next.

Remember their names.

Re: “Smaller Crowd at Shelter-in-Place Protest After Last Week's Sign Went Viral

Opening businesses, schools, etc is premature until everyone has equal access to a universal public healthcare system.

Just ask the Swedes.

Re: “Wear the Damn Mask

Unfortunately, there's an "internet expert" offering conflicting information with authoritative confidence for every conceivable belief.

Actual professionals in virology and epidemiology (and your family doctor) are distinguished by their avoidance of speaking in "absolutes" like we see above.

Their consensus in clear:

"Not enough is known about this novel virus".
"Not enough testing is being performed".

We also know that Taiwan, Vietnam, South Korea, and Singapore initiated national campaigns to wear masks, focusing on impoverished epicenters while banning exports of medical supplies and equipment all LAST JANUARY! As a result, most of their schools and businesses remained open and they have few cases and deaths.

The anti-science, climate change denying, flag-waving, belly-dragging mouth-breathers want it both ways: no masks and no closure and their representatives have heard their cries, preparing to crowd them into Eureka's fair-grounds by the hundreds, side-by-side on tiny cots like Mother Theresa's AIDS "death-clinics", freely exchanging each individual's viral strain to enhance rapid mutation.

Re: “A Toe in the Water

Local and national officials should be taking every media-opportunity to acknowledge the utter failure of privatized healthcare to adequately respond to ANY disaster!!

Right-wing Orange County, near Riverside, has the highest death rate in the state for its premature opening.

Herd immunity is great for Sweden and its state-of-the-art health care system that's provided universally for all residents.
