There are more important things than living!

Texas Lt. Governor on Ending State's COVID-19 Lockdown: "There Are ...

I didn’t say that.

The Governor of Texas, Dan Patrick said that.

Here is what he told Tucker Carlson on Fox TV earlier this week:

“Every life is valuable, but 500 people out of 29 million and we’re locked down, and we’re crushing the average worker. We’re crushing small business. We’re crushing the markets. We’re crushing this country…There are more important things than living. And that’s saving this country for my children, and my grandchildren and saving this country for all of us…And I don’t want to die, nobody wants to die, but man, we got to take some risks and get back in the game, and get this country back up and running.”

So what do you think? Would you jump in the volcano to save your country’s finances?

What is more important than living?

I’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments section…please.

    More important than “just living” is living wisely. Living prudently. Living responsibly. Trusting the medical community and doing your best to live with compassion and love. LIVING with people before commerce is crucial to peaceful, joyful living. Our children need us to leave them a legacy of courage and wisdom… not foolishness and unnecessary risks. #Hugs4Happiness

    This is a very thinly-veiled ageism. The elderly are considered non-productive in terms of the economy and, because the economy is everything to these people, the elderly have become superfluous.
