    “Scientists are on the case and will figure it out because that’s what they do. It just takes some time.”

    Just like they have done with covid-19?

    And as with covid-19, will they have it done in spite of opposition from the anti-science factions in our population?

    “Forgiveness from God is not our decision.”

    Then why did you suggest that they should be praying as if it is?

    In fact, as I more carefully consider what you wrote — “I hope they are praying for forgiveness instead of hoping to escape the consequences of their actions and inactions!” — I ask: Isn’t “praying for forgiveness” exactly “hoping to escape the consequences”?

    “All you’d have to do is make it an act of treason to accept a single private dollar while serving in any position in the American government.”

    I doubt that Teto85 has the power to actually do that. Do you? I know that I don’t.

    Then again, what about all the non-cash “favors” — from meals to “vacations” to promises of delivering votes — that are now common “currency” among today’s lobbyists?

    “It’s not a one-size-fits-all situation.”

    And more specifically, it’s not a “one-number-defines-all” situation.

    “They are not as badly influenced.”

    Bullfeathers! Almost(?) without exception, each longer-serving legislator just develops a close coterie of “favorite” lobbyists.

    “If you want term limits then eliminate lobbyists as well.”

    I’m all for that. I remember when most of what is now called “lobbying” was known as “bribery”… and was — at least theoretically — punishable by prison terms.

    “Who are you calling a bunch of weirdos?”

    Obviously not me. I’m not “a bunch”.

    “And then have laws written by lobbyists and special interest groups like happens in those states with term limits?”

    Are you claiming that legislation written by long-serving un"limited" legislators is free of influence from “lobbyists and special interest groups”? Be careful; I think Disney has trademarked “Fantasy Land”.

    “Power-crazed politicians need some mental qualification for keeping their jobs.”

    Being ‘power-crazed’ should disqualify them from even getting the job in the first place, regardless of their age.

    But it won’t, since it’s the power-crazed who make the rules.

    “I concur, …. Power-crazed politicians need some mental qualification for keeping their jobs.”

    And you “concur” that the number of years that one has been alive is a “mental qualification”?

    I know, from personal observation of hundreds of “older” individuals, that that is not true.

    It may be that in certain families mental competence has a tendency to decline with advanced age, but in many others it does not. Any determination of “mental qualification” should be independent of chronological age.

    I would even go so far as to suggest that anyone who claims otherwise should themselves be “mentally disqualified”, regardless of their own chronological age.

    “Bad weather has a way of figuring out when a vacation is planned, and shows up to spoil things…”

    Doesn’t happen to me. Maybe the weather just doesn’t consider me important enough?
