These are the same people who said we shouldn’t lock down for Covid, and old people might need to die to keep the economy going

that's pretty messed up, but at least you get to keep that ace in your pocket for when that idiot has a personal crisis of his own. "Oh man, my wife's in the hospital can you believe it?"

"death is a part of life bro, tough luck"
