What if the kids get the shit and bring it home to the parents who then take it to grannies house or to their workplace?
Is this so the kids don't get sick or so it doesn't spread like crazy throughout the land?

Either way what we DO know is who gives a fuck about Covid until someone we care about is hooked up to a ventilator in a hospital.
Who gives a fuck about anything until it affects them directly?
So again why are we trying to stop the spread? who knows?
Why do we bother with seat belts? More people have died from Covid than die on average in 4 years in car crashes in the USA(adults)
Who is the Govt to tell us Sheeple to do ANYTHING??
IF you honestly think that Covid has come along as a Govt control system then your head has been in the sand, todays fucking moronic kids have been manipulated electronically since day one with the blue screens in their faces 23 hrs a day and with mommy being a day care center somewhere while the bio mom is chasing a few bucks around because her choice of a mate can't cut the fucking mustard and provide for his family.
The kids today are mostly fucked either way...lol Don"t kid yourself.
Anyway so why are they not letting the little shits get it and spread it?
Therein lies the question...............
Cheers
You make a lot of legit points here. But you can send kids to school, and instead provide recommendations for targeted lockdowns for those who are actually in the high risk population(s).

If you've got kids going to school, and grandma with emphysema lives with you, then keep your kids home from school and either home school or implement an on-line Internet curriculum. But what about the other 23 kids in his/her class who don't have the same risk environment.

I just think things should be targeted instead of state wide shutdowns. Such shutdowns do not properly take into account all the hidden health, mental health and economic costs of the lockdown.

Lastly, 200,000 deaths, and the median age of those deaths is something like 78. That means 100,000 deaths were people over 78 and most had co-morbidities. How many of those 100,000 would have likely died of other causes this year, given that the national average for life expectancy in 2019 was 78.87? It's reasonable to expect that of the 200,000 deaths of people that were heavily weighted in their 70s and 80s, they may have died anyways, Doesn't mean that their death isn't a tragedy, it is. But just trying to put it in perspective.

We take other risks as a society do we take even though we could prevent those risks. 38,800 traffic fatalities happened in the US last year. If we locked down speed limits to 25mph, traffic fatalities would be almost completely eliminated. Are we douchebags for driving about 25 even though we know we are putting the lives of others at risk?

I don't think the gov't did this on purpose. They don't have the creativity. But I think that some governors were more than happy to drive their state economies into the ground (temporarily) if they thought it would have a desired effect on the election. I absolutely believe that to be true.

I'm pretty sure that the teachers in my town are trying to catch something or at least get tested so they can close the school down and not have to go to work, lazy fks. I see them all at the grocery complaining around the stock boy who is making 1/4 of what they are making with no pension. He's at work, why can't you???

If they don't want to work, that's fine. Just replace them, and they don't get paid. They'll start singing a different tune pretty quick. They want to not work, and get paid. Screw that!

There are way over 200,000 excessive death.
That means over 200K more than we normally do.
So the 100,000 wouldnt have died of other cause as you speculate.
They would have been in the "normal" numbers of death, whats expected.

Understand that we have long track record of expected death.
This is way over the normal numbers.

Like I said before, look at the data outside this country and its not so difficult to understand.

Why do they allow adults teachers to dress like slobs? Teachers want to be treated like professionals, then dress like one. These teachers dress worse than the kids.

Now, the 1st thing I noticed is this is a damn small school. Only 10 kids in the class? Holy shit, middle schools here have 30-35 kids in each class and 1500 - 2000 kids in a school. It would take a damn mile long line to have them all social distanced to check them in and it would not get done in a reasonable time. Then they would have no room in the building to have 10 kids in a class in little silly cube.

My neighbors kid is 15 year old and in middle school here. Very large school. I asked him what he did as far as school since March. NOTHING. They absolutely had no work for school. Talk about a lost generation....

The whinny ass teachers refused to go back to work and they State Supreme Court said either go back of get fired. Kids wear masks and back to school as normal. Get over this crap, kids have lost a big chunk of education already. We will likely have a generation of idiots if we don't stop playing politics with our kids education.
I agree with 95% of this, I do however feel that we ALREADY have a generation of idiots.............a couple generations actually.:p

Can't disagree with you. I kid is 24 and was indoctrinated in about the 6th grade. He started coming home with all this save the earth BS and asking questions about why we worked so hard. He also started having issues about why he was not owed more than what he had. At that point we probably should have put him in a private school that teaches conservative values. Now he is a self proclaimed socialist. My wife grew up under a dictatorship and he refuses to listen to her. The world owes him.

I understand. My wife was a very strict Orthodox Roman Catholic in Buenos Aires. She was raised in a nun school. The nuns paid her mother a visit because they though she was possessed because she questioned what she was being taught.
