    My point was missed a little.

    How much damage and potential loss of life is being created to mitigate the potential towards a smaller population??

    Let's say we do nothing and 5 million people die. Are we better off once they die and we move on with our lives?

    Or do we do what we keep doing and say, a million die, but 30 million are left in shambles, tired, broke and defeated?

    That's where the answer to the question is. Those numbers that we tolerate have already been established.
    I agree your answer is a valid one, but just curious if you would put the “tolerable” closer to flu deaths or auto accidents? There is a huge difference. Or maybe, what is the % increase in “tolerable” deaths you would allow? After all, we do things to minimize deaths in each of those categories... at least that’s what cops tell you when they pull you over for speeding, that they are “helping you be safe.”

    Hmmm...

    GA asked a question:
    Geez guy... are you really that up-tight???
    (end)

    If the answer is true... then GA offered something that works for GA...
    If the answer is not true... then there is not really anything to discuss... other than a simple answer that someone is not 'that uptight'...

    Not sure how anything was implied there...
    Just a simple question...
    Nothing meant by it...

    Geez... seems we have been here before???
    Imaginary implications???

    That’s also a valid concern. I keep telling my wife that quarantines cause a certain amount of suffering and death themselves. But it doesn’t change the fact that there is a point where a quarantine would be justified. For sure a quarantine would be worth its price if the alternative was 90% death rate.

    Just take the average of the top five. If that is too much, take the average of the top ten.

    Easy peasy to answer your question. We already accept more deaths than most can possibly imagine.

    I wonder...

    Who takes responsibility for the folks whose lives are RUINED... in the name of govt imposed 'safety'...

    Add to this the obvious partisan and agendas behind the so called govt safety...

    And we have a real problem!!!

    I generally agree. Not to sound “ageist,” but the fact that it primarily affects the elderly is also a consideration.

    As it is my choice whether I answer any specific question from you.

    (However I am not sure what difference what anyone else does, should have any bearing on what an individual does???)

    Last time I checked... it was called:

    FREEDOM!

    I do not know about you... however I kinda like that idea... I am free to or free not to...
    As are you...

    Enjoy your (new found???) freedom...

    My freedom isn’t “new found.” I just so happen to believe in old fashioned civility, unlike some others I know. Sorry if I expect too much grace from you.

    No apology is necessary...

    GA has NO expectations from others...

    To live under an expectation... is to be enslaved to the person who one expects something from...
    Does anyone really wanna be a slave (even if only mentally)???

    It all started with the government tricking families into thinking both parents had to work to survive. Now when one drops out all hell breaks loose. A pandemic wouldn't be as hard hitting back in the 50s. The dollar and how it was earned meant something.
