I mean, really nothing you're posting here is changing my view that young people aren't sacrificing their economic well being for the sake of the health of boomers and the elderly.

The government is doing everything possible to make sure that the boomers' overpriced real estate assets remain overpriced, and everything possible to make sure that the boomers' overpriced stock assets remain overpriced, and nothing to compensate young people for the years of lost earnings they're going to suffer from this catastrophe. So tell me how the **** this is fair.

If nobody is going to even try to convince me that the government's response isn't geared toward protecting the assets and savings of boomers, at least try and convince me that the government cares or even recognizes the financial opportunity lost to the young people because of this disaster. Come on. My faith in humanity depends on it.

Fuckers.

She hasn't lost a semester, she is doing finals now online. Her older brother is doing co-op with an engineering firm in kim city before starting his last year of school in September. They are concerned of course but there isn't much they can do about it.

I hope that when you shuffle off this mortal coil (hopefully not any time soon), you're leaving her something more than just a pickle dish or some needlepoint crap that your mom made.

I love you, wilber, but I'm not sure that you old fuckers fully appreciate what's being given up for you right now.

the waldo suggests your understanding of humanity is woefully flawed/lacking!

for all your whining about impacting on your 'bar time', it's the olders that built the economy/country that allows you to be able to speak so callously toward them. Those assets/savings you're so clearly jealous towards, those were realized through decades, lifetimes even, of dedicated hard work building the society you clearly take for granted... that you speak of as nothing more than an entitlement you simply deserve.

before you sign up for a local death-panel, the waldo suggests diverting some of your pent-up 'bar energy' towards visiting/volunteering in care-homes... you know, once they're allowed to open again; perhaps you might gain some semblance of empathy toward the current plight of most care home residents who, typically, aren't the richyRiches you're so targeting.

Typical that dickheads would interpret my complaint as being that I can't go to the bar, as opposed to the fact that enormous numbers of young people are out of work.   I'm sure that an Asperger's syndrome shut-in like yourself wouldn't understand this, but enormous numbers of young people have been put out of work by this.

I'll continue working for my employer that builds and services equipment needed by emergency services and first responders.

Lindsey, the one who is doing dog-walking and grocery shopping for seniors, to earn **** PIN MONEY while she is out of work, is the one who is in contact with these seniors, and the one whose financial well-being is being most destroyed by this shitstorm, and while she's annoyingly optimistic and positive about all of this, I can't stand watching this dogshit go on.

oh the humanity! You own it now - you own the selfish, self-serving, callous and uncaring comments you've made. "Open the bars, let the olders eat cake"!

by the by, do you want an attagirl award for what you claim your company does?

I ask again: how long are people willing to wait for a vaccine? 2022? 2023? 2024?

 -k
I'd be willing to wait as long as it takes if I can be assured that my quarantine/protection as a person of high-risk will be fully funded including my mortgage and health care. Legislation and a constitutional guarantee that protects me from the inevitable resentment people with jobs will have towards people who don't would be a nice touch too.

This wasn't my fault and I want compensation not a handout.

I suspect there are plenty of politicians who don't give two shits about you kimmy.  If you only had a camera and a microphone in a room full of boomer politicians so you could actually catch them saying that you'd have something a lot better than faith to depend on.

Your future wellbeing has never depended more on forcing honest governance. Your current situation should tell you why.  Sneakiness got us into this mess but it'll never get us out.

It isn't anybody's fault... nobody on this side of the ocean, at least.

Compensation? That would be great if we could decide who's doing the compensating. It better be China... it better not be young Canadians. But for now your compensation is that society at large is making great sacrifices to protect you and other people at high risk.

I completely agree kimmy.  Thereís no reason that society canít open back up, while at the same time practice mitigation and some kinds of distancing.  You donít destroy the lives of millions of people to protect the lives of thousands.  High risk people should continue to quarantine, but the rest of us should be allowed to get back to work.  This over the top hysteria has to stop.

According to the CDC, for the week ending April 11, 22% of Covid 19 related deaths were people under 65. Granted, most of them were between 55 and 64 but 10% were still under 54.
And how many had underlying health issues?  Obesity, diabetes, COPD, etc?

Why does it matter if they had underlying health conditions?  Donít people with asthma deserve the same protection as anyone else?

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

This is nothing but hoping for the best, but everyone who has 2 brain cells to rub together that this will cause huge amount of deaths and chaos in the medical system.  Anyone who advocates this is a complete Covidiot.

Luckily, we have actual experts who know what they are doing advising the government about such things.

It matters a lot.  Because that makes up almost the entirety of those that succumb to the virus.  Yes, as I said, anyone thatís high risk should remain in quarantine if they choose.
