  1. Lt Gov Patrick: “ there are more important things than living”

    They KNOW a lot of people will die but have decided that’s the price of business. As long as the 1% can be shielded from the unwashed masses, they’re A-OK with whatever happens.

  2. Very early on I sent written instructions to one of my d/in-law’s who I trust to respect my wishes with my instructions should I develop severe complications from Covid.

    As a long term ex smoker I do not want to battle back to health. Two weeks plus flat on your back on a respirator means months of physio to get bones and muscle mass back. With lungs like Swiss cheese. I have had a good run and if I do not fight it off initially then sayonara my friends.

  3. Theres is a lot of people that want this to happen. They want to just get going ignoring the virus, and think it will be just the flu if they get it. All for the economy

  4. Rich people don’t care. That’s the “great” thing about having so many people in poverty, no matter how many peasants die, there will always be more willing to trade their safety for money that they need to live and make you richer all the while.

  5. Yes, but what *kind* of people will die from coronavirus? Wealthy influential people, or poor non-influential people? Might a for-profit hospital be generally successful in their life- and health-saving efforts for those able to afford prompt treatment, hence rendering the mortality rate amongst such people trivially low compared to the *hoi polloi?*

    I worry that the people in charge might think the death rate acceptable, provided most of those deaths are suffered by the sorts of people they don’t care about. Remember AIDS, nothing’s changed at the top since then

  6. “Here in America, we don’t give a fuck if you can’t protect yourself! I wanna live my life and not give a shit about anyone else! Cause that’s part of the American Dream: The right to be a total asshole without consequence!”

    – some anti-mask weirdo, probably

  7. Yeah no fucking shit. Jeeze, these revelations that top organizations and governments keep coming up with should be common sense. Hey guys did you know if we infect 70% of the population with a deadly virus, it will actually kill more people than if only say 5% of people contracted it. I have to keep reminding myself that modern medicine as we know it is still in it’s infancy, and that the people who run the world are idiots with a fancy title. If there is an actual God that created human life, they 100% dipped out asap, once they realized how truely stupid we are. We have too learn from our mistakes, or we are destined to keep repeating them through out history. . .history after 2020 is TBD.

  8. To the people in power this is a fantastic thing, the more poor people that can’t isolate and end up dead, the longer they can put off the massive amounts of political and economic reforms that we are demanding for.

  9. And none of these idiots will give one absolute flying fuck. I just don’t get it. How can they look at how Japan handled the virus (just wore masks with no economic shutdown or anything) and still argue against masks? It’s common fucking courtesy for your fellow man. That’s all. If you don’t want to have that, what kind of person are you, really?
