The American economy is always strong because the system is designed to shift people out of the economy when they become too ill, old, or infirm to work, leaving them to live off of meager handouts or on the streets.
It is useless to discuss changing the system because altering the economy would put too many people at risk of living off meager handouts or on the streets … and who in their right mind would want that?
This is a beach on the North Shore that, unlike every other beach I have seen, is entirely covered in large round rocks of similar colour and size. It is absolutely amazing … though perhaps not as comfortable to rest on as beaches where the grains of sand are somewhat smaller.
This horse assures you that stripes are really quite fashionable, that everyone is wearing them now, and would really appreciate it if you could give him a ride to the city and away from the vicinity of the prison.
It is erroneous to say “science doesn’t support re-opening this early”. Science simply suggests that opening this early will cause a large number of otherwise unnecessary* deaths and a likely shortened and more painful lifespan for some of the survivors.
Politically, this needs to be balanced against other critical factors, like the availability of haircuts** and stock market indices. So it’s really a heads vs tails sort of thing.
* Don’t get me started on the concept of “necessary deaths”.
