ONDCP Blog Not Allowing Comments

Via Robert Guest:

My quest to comment on the Pushingback.com site is coming to an end.

Keri, my friendly contact at the ONDCP has informed me that the Pushingback.com does not allow for any reader input. Comments are not posted and no one can register to post on the site.

Drug warriors are such cowards. Only a government blog could actually stifle free speech. My tax dollars are being wasted on this nonsense. Why does our government fear debate? What do they have to lose from the free flow of ideas?

I’ve actually wasted my time trying to respond to the anti-common sense propaganda on that site as well.

And here I thought they were just rejecting my well reasoned observations about the uselessness of the Drug War, but it turns out…they already know in advance: people that take enough time to sit down and write out a blog comment have thought the issue through and don’t agree with their position.

So, just turn comments off all together. (Of course, to keep up the farce, they have a “Send Comments” link.)

There is a reason (but not a reason that makes any sense to a normal mind) they don't allow comments. That reason is the same one that prevents them from engaging in any public debate...

They can't stand public scrutiny! They scurry when real light is shone upon them (like cucarachas).

Hey! Its not easy lying this long about so much...

Of course the gummint's drug policy bureaucrats know their castle is made of sand. And if you go exploring, like to PDFA, you'll find they don't allow comments either. In fact, there are NO "anti-drug" org wwwebsites that allow comments.
