Desert Beacon is a socially liberal, fiscally centrist blog. While politics is interesting, and periodically gets some play here, what readers will find here most often is policy wonkishness — especially on economic matters.
Comments are invited, BUT there are some ground rules for what will be published:
No ad hominem attacks. If name calling is the only “argument” against the content of a post, then that really isn’t an argument in the first instance. Ad hominem attacks or character assassination attempts on other commenters won’t be published either.
No insults. As in the case of ad hominem attacks, if the obvious intent of the comment is to insult the intelligence, character, integrity, or personality of the poster or commenter then the comment won’t be published. There are perfectly acceptable ways of respectfully disagreeing with a post or comment without being disagreeable and impolite.
No comments that link to commercial sites will be published.
Thank You for your interest, and it’s hoped that the content of Desert Beacon will be sufficiently informative and interesting to convince you to visit often.
