Wednesday, August 12, 2020

All lives matter. Not just the young. This ageist crap is getting old. Young people are not any more special than anyone else.

I hope that was satirical because, as an old person, I can honestly say it is far more tragic for some young person to die than it would be for me to meet my maker. I've lived my life, I've raised my kids, I've had a good time with my grandchildren. Don't get me wrong though, I don't want to die but when young healthcare workers caring for COVID patients I can't help it, I do cry.

"Ageist crap?" Don't be ridiculous.

I think the point of the article is simple and straightforward: Covid is a serious threat to everyone, not just the old and infirm.

Many people, especially Trumpist anti-maskers, want to ignore this fact and make Covid a test of how "tough" they are versus the wimps who give in to tyrannical governors.

In other words, we're at the hoax argument that Trump started months ago.

So happy my kid lives in a liberal area where they are only having online classes... schools in normal conditions are petri dishes and the young are definitely not immune from covid19

If COVID poses them a serious threat, why wouldn't they isolate like everyone else?
