I hope there are more seniors out there like him.

The GOP, home of the pretend pro-lifers.

Grandma and grandpa need to be exterminated so people don't lose money.

MAGA.

He worships at the church of Wall Street. If he wants to die on that hill I have no problem with it.

How is that unselfish?


Many grandparents are raising grandkids. Who will take care of those kids?


Many people dying are young and healthy. Should they sacrifice themselves, too?


What about people who are mostly healthy but have a preexisting condition? I have lung damage from chemo, but am otherwise healthy, a major net contributor to society (volunteering, taxes), and have 35+ years of my career. Should I sacrifice myself too?


What about the doctors and nurses who will die caring for the influx of patients?


What about the people with appendicitis, cancer, gall bladder attacks, and any other manner of run of the mill illnesses that are no big deal but won't be able to get a bed at the hospital or a surgeon to take care of them because of all the coronavirus patients dying?



There's a special place in hell for people who think this is OK.

We all knew everything was about the almighty dollar.

Now we know that even our lives don't come ahead of it.

I imagine if the 2009 pandemic were to happen now we'd be told that it's ok to sacrifice our children for the economy because we could always have more later.

You can be damn certain he has no intention of being one of the ones that die. That’s for the little people.

That old guy doesn’t speak for others. I say it’s rather selfish.
