Just Kids with Sniffles the POTUS Says? Adult Lives Matter!
In a recent interview where the increasing cases of Corona Virus infections were mentioned, the POTUS, Donald Trump, remarked that most were just cases of kids with sniffles who would easily survive. Strange that the POTUS would dismiss sniffling, and the inevitable coughing and sneezing that usually accompanies it so frivolously despite supposedly knowing how deadly this virus can be to adults and especially to much older adults which constitute a signifcant percentage ofthe USA population.
Such a statement conveys the callous impression that it's OK for older people to die from being exposed to these kids as long as these contaminated kids survive. As usual, the question is: What does he mean? Obviously kids will touch their mouths and noses. They will then touch books and desks and anything within arm's reach such as doorknobs and TV remote controls. So is the POTUS telling us that it's OK merely because they themselves survive? If indeed it's OK for them to spread the virus because it won't kill them, then why isn't it OK for Adults who are immune carriers to spread it? They don't die either. They survive as well!
Care to answer that question Mister President? Also, Mr. President, would you allow one of those Corona-Virus-infected sniffling, kids to cough or sneeze in your Oval Office prior to you giving a national State of the Union Adress? If indeed you are unwilling to expose your own precious self that way. Please have the consideration of not attempting to expose others. Our lives matter as well regardless of our adult or advanced age.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
