    Acceptable Casualties - The Elderly Or The Economy

    This discussion was raised by Texas Lt Governor Dan Patrick this week. Acceptable casualties are a fact of life, whether acknowledged or not. It usually isn't spoken to with the exception of war strategies.

    Should the priority be on saving all lives especially the elderly, or our grandchildren's economic future in this country? What say, you old Codgers?

    Well now, I'm retired but I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon so he can stick that approach where sunshine don't reach.

    I’d step out of the way for a better life for my children.

    I’m old. My contribution to society is pretty much over and I don’t have anything on my bucket list. So I’m all for saving the country, but hopefully not to turn it over to the socialist nutjobs.

    As far as I'm concerned the elderly should be protected at all costs. They are the ones who actually shed blood for this country. The economy issues will heal itself when America starts making everything here again.

    Save the country and the economy. I am 60 and not worried a bit. Living where I do, I have a better chance getting hit by an illegal rushing to pick up his free government check in a dump truck then dying of the China bug. I don't know that this thing will kill more then 30,000 or so out of 7.8 billion world wide, but it sure has hell killed the world wide economy.

    Who lives who is allowed to die decisions are made far more often than you think . Using resource to keep a person alive another 6 months is wasted on false hope and often more is spent in the last few months of a person life than from birth to that point.
    May piss some off but this virus still has not kill that many. The percentage of death is low.

    lets role play this (I am not advocating for either side) (How do you see them rolling out)

    1. everybody goes back to work, illness spreads rapidly, deaths escalate, health care is rationed, riots start, looting.. economy screwed due to unrest


    2. government passes massive worker bail out, illness spreads slowly, deaths trickle in, as the spread slows, economy grinds to a halt, businesses fail unemployment goes to north of 20%, charity giving is down because people struggle to take care of themselves, at the end of x time period illness deaths are less then option 1, economy is tanked, there is a lost generation of workers that will never have a job making any real money.. airlines struggle, buying a NEW car is hard for the lower income levels

    This needs to be said again, . . . and add that Tx governor to the list.

    Economies come and economies go, . . . just like the monthly installment of Superman we used to get for a dime.

    Sometimes we liked it and it made us happy, . . . other times we tossed it, . . . looking fwd to the next one.

    The economy will come back to the liking of some, . . . dislike of others, . . . and "meh" to the rest.

    Get this bug on the way out, . . . demonstrably, . . . THEN, go play golf and talk about your stocks.

    May God bless,
    Dwight
    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.
