    God will decide when I leave this world, (I'll reserve the right to have at least a say in certain things but God and I are still working that part out!).

    Get government out of the way, they've mucked up way too many things and will continue. Major Muck-Ups they are.

    While the government is busy getting their "candy" together to toss it out like a bunch of drunks on a Mardi Gras Float to watch the minions scrap for some dirty candy, they can write me a damn check for ...pick a number...50% of what I paid in for the last 43 years or so?

    When I get MY money back, I'll be happy. Until then I don't believe much of what they say. And I'll continue to watch what they do...because what they do is usually NOT what they say.

    I stand with this.

    My parents are not collateral damage and neither is my wife who has diabetes. No matter what the government mandates, my job is to protect them.

    A to the Men on this one Hawg!

    Listen politicians and listen well. Reduce the barriers to manufacturing in these United States and that will solve lots of problems.

    To the pharkin bunch of evil tax payer funded politicians; Your blood is already on the hands of over 50 Million Dead Babies, killed by a knife funded by you evil sumbitches. NO MORE.

    ok, given the choice between a 75 year old with lung issues, weakened system, and a heart problem and a 19 year old with no underlying issues - Who gets the ventilator....

    Triage is not based who fought during which war.. it is based on who will survive
    --------------------

    our best bet is to protect the elderly from getting it when the system is over loaded.... Then we do not have to worry about who is pushed to the side for service

    Right on the money! Keep the elderly and the susceptible on lock-down. Take care of them. We need to take care of our own.

    Did any of you guys get the Lifeboat" scenario thrown at you in school? You know, there's too many people. Who gets to stay on the boat and who gets pushed overboard? I feel like this is sort of it. It's like a war over in Italy. I hope it doesn't come to that here.

    This is what we are doing with grandma (mother in law) She is 88 beat breast cancer a short time ago. She is home on the farm hers is 3 miles from ours. We check on her by phone drop off what she needs. She is happy to be in her home . Her and her dog along with the barn cats that come to the door each day for food are all very happy right now.

    That sounds good and I agree with it but I don’t think it’s possible without a vaccine.

    It has spread so much at this point that I see no way of stopping it. Practically every major business is considered essential now so people will come in contact with each other no matter how much you lock things down.

    What can we do?

    If there was a direct action that ensured a Grandparents sacrifice would save a grandchild, (ie wrestling the Bear while the grandchildren run to safety) then It's my opinion that most Grandparents would willingly perform such an action. But there is no such action to be taken against a virus. When the Grandparents survive
    a battle COVID19 and they have antibodies that can be infused via blood transfusions to the grandchildren & other Family Members, well that might be a Horse of a different color. JMHO.
