BEST WISHES indeed! As a member of that vulnerable sector of our universe I would be offended if I cared about your opinion. There are people out there who will be offended, though. It is possible that you have used your medical quota already because of your condition and possible drain on on sociatal resources. By the way, I have insurance other than medicade. That particular comment places you as a pimple on the face of humanity.
Thank you for your response to my post as I was obviously not aware that it might cause some people offence. Just to make it clear, I too would be considered to be amongst the most vulnerable people with regard to this new virus. This is why I feel that it is somewhat surreal that the UK government adopted the concept of 'herd-immunity' as a method of managing this problem. I do not believe that there is another country in the world that has suggested 'herd-immunity' as an appropriate response, so there will be many people out there who would agree with my very cynical view on the politics surrounding this topic in the UK. My take on this matter has little or nothing to do with medicade or insurance, as the UK has a National Health System (NHS), which caters for the sick, free of charge at the point of delivery. The point I was making was that deliberately allowing/encouraging the majority of people to become infected, makes those people who are more likely to die, much more vulnerable than they might otherwise had been, if a different strategy had been adopted in the first place.
Mind you! I do like the concept of me being a 'pimple on the face of humanity', as it it complements my concept of being 'a nobody'. (see my rhyme 'I am a Nobody' on my profile) So, I will definitely use this as a self-description in future. Thank you for this idea.
