    Sick evil BS

    @thatoneguy I’m a major fan of life extension, however the fear mongering of the COVID-19 pandemic has relied on mortality rates, and most of those stats are in high-risk groups, of which the elderly area big part, and those stats are being used as leverage against much younger and less vulnerable people to control their behavior, and IMO it’s very unfair.

    Yes those in high-risk situations need to take special care not to get infected ( with anything ), but their situation doesn’t warrant the massive social controls and business lockdowns of the rest of the population who is far less at risk. It’s just plain wrong.

    So please don’t blame the elderly. They’re pawns in a game of biopolitical football. Blame the fear mongers who cherry pick  the worst stories to sell news, or were borderline germaphobic to begin with and have bought into the enforcement of germaphobic behavior. Together they drive political demographics that have resulted in measures that have destroyed literally millions of lives and livelihoods, along with our overall quality of life.

    It has to stop. So be upset. Even be angry. But most of all, be smart about it. Lobby with businesses to push back against the sweeping lockdowns, fines, and social controls. There are coalitions of concerned business out there. Volunteer. Contact them and show your support. But please, the solution isn’t to endorse a cap on lifespans. That’s a whole Logan’s Run scenario.

    The elderly are the ones making the rules so they are the problem.

    Don’t trust anyone over 30? Personally, I don’t want anyone killing my mother. I want her to get any medical care she needs and hope to see her live well into her 90s, just like her mother, her mother’s sister, and her grandmother. I don’t want her denied care just because she’s 75 with asthma and high blood pressure. No one has any right to decide she needs to go before her time and it’s not her time yet.

    Make it time. Pain is bad. There is no pain in the next place.

    No! You’re nuts! It’s none of your damn business when someone dies, just as it is none of your damn business if someone gets an abortion. My mother isn’t in pain. What makes you think she is when she’s enjoying her life living it to its fullest? Just because she has asthma and high blood pressure does not mean she’s miserable. She’s not and is quite happy living life and having a boyfriend. She likes her boyfriend and he likes her. What is it of your damn business if she’s enjoying life to its fullest? You are absolutely hellbent on killing people. BTW, is there no other place. This life it, so get that out of your head with your gunho desire to kill people. Such sick mentality you have. Maybe you need to see a therapist or something because your insistence that you make the rule and kill elderly people is pure fascism and Nazism.

    VOTE AOC for POTUS in 2024!  She would be the youngest ever POTUS. Would that make you happy, oneguy? No?

    I for one am getting very sick of the ageism, racism, sexism, and every other hateful ism that has occurred on this board that I missed. People need to read the rules again about such things. IF it continues, I will again start shutting down threads/conversations, this one included. It’s one things to spew scientific ignorance, but it is another thing to preach eugenics and age limitation of life. This is a cease and desist or I will close this thread and any other like it that gets started after shutdown of this thread. This is not a threat, but a promise. If such things continue, it could possibly be the end of the forum entirely and we really do not want that. I don’t want it.

    You’re right, kid, the old farts are making the rules right now and that’s why you need to vote this election. You have two choices- three fascist old a$$holes (Dotard, He Who Is Not Worth His Name, and Moscow Mitch) who preach eugenics (see the recent rally up north where he preached about gene and whipping up the racists) OR you can vote for a more compassionate liberal old fart who has, if he croaks while in office, a young woman who is about may age (we’re both in our 50s), old enough to be a president by ancient ancestral rules, can take his place. We need to get about 95% of the Boomers out of office, leaving those like Biden, who are willing to turn the reins over to Xers and Millennials. You have to have the Xers for now, because not all Millennials are old enough to be president. Although, that may change in 2024, because AOC et al will be old enough to run for president (I think), but we have to get the majority of the boomers out of our government by voting. If we don’t vote the old farts out of office this time around, we doomed to fascism and we lose democracy. Maybe you don’t believe we will lose democracy in the U.S., but that is what the Religious Fascist Repugs are going for- destroying democracy in the U.S. and they do have close ties with Putin (believe it or not). We have to vote this election and if the dotard et al stack the Supreme Court, we just better hope democracy wins in the U.S. or we will be a Fascist nation full of racism, xenophobia, hatred to LGBTs, ageism, and sexism etc (unless you prefer all that hatred, even though it is not healthy for anyone).

    Speak truth like this.  We may not be able to keep up with the sheer # of LIES put out by the RepugLIARS.  But because we speak truth, we may yet prevail.

    @timb thank you, but it’s difficult to get people to listen to truth when they insist on believing the lies.
