Disposable Seniors
 
Texas Lt. Gov. suggests the elderly should risk their lives to save the economy.

I hope this episode of the old program The Dinosaurs find its way to him. What's next - end of life bill ?

Enjoy - resolution gets slightly better a few minutes in.

Your too kind. Having a defined end of life age is much more effective than let the old goats fend for themselves. If all seniors get thrown into the tar pit at 72 years old it solves Medicare, Social Security, Global Warming (less people less pollution) and underfunded pensions.

I just seen on the boob tube hurling season starts on Easter Sunday.

Kind of a scary thought for us old folks, but true.

Glad to hear that the Texas Lt gov is happy to sacrifice himself for the economy, but I still think that the measure of a civilization is how they treat their vulnerable.

Actually it was Lt Gov Dan Patrick that made the comment.

First of all, as a senior myself, I'm not particularly enthusiastic about this approach. :pray:

On the other hand, I think I read where Italy is already doing this.

On the battlefield, we'd call this triage.

Charleston Heston knew.

I take the Lt. Governor's larger point - if we destroy the American economy in the name of trying to protect everyone from this virus over an unlimited time frame, it will be the epitome of a Pyrrhic victory. He's right about that, and clear-thinking individuals know he's right about that.

Now, people can poke fun or cast aspersions toward him for some false notion that he's saying "kill off the old people!", but we cannot have an economy collapse in this nation over this. If this isolation phase goes on for months, it's going to be disastrous for the country.

I'd love to hear the pollyannish commentary about what that would actually look like and be like post-virus, were this current scenario to go on for months. I'd love to hear how that sets up younger generations to thrive.

But go ahead, make the jokes. Just wondering, though...who do you think desperate young folks are going to come to when they don't have a job or a realistic chance at wealth building? I'm going to venture a guess that they will come to those they see who have things they don't. Mirror, anyone?
