Not all, but I don't think it's fair to condemn all people past a certain age, should page of a certain age just get inside their coffin ?
Yes statistically not all people live that long and some people that age are more vulnerable to disease - but not every person at that age walks with a cane and is in nursing homes. Alex Trebek lived to be 80, and worked till the end, despite his NASTY cancer. Julia child nearly made it to 92, survived breast cancer, was a heavy smoker, had diabetes. Bob Barker, 96 years old.......etc. There are many elderly folks going to the gym / sports center I go to, they are regularly there, working out, swimming, playing sports and keeping in shape, in their 80 to mid 90s. People today are living much older than they used to, unfortunately many people past a certain age are also struck by crippling conditions, but not all.
At 78 Biden is super old , his kidney are bad , liver bad , brain dying , and much more
There are people that age that are working construction, living in their own home, tending to their yard, farm, and still wiping their arse. Julie Child had kidney problems and died a few days short of her 92nd birthday. Liver bad ? Brain dying ? Where did you get that info Tasman1 ? Just because he forgot Trump's name during the campaign does not mean his brain is dying, he could have been sarcastic or had a memory blank, not uncommon, a 78 year old can still lead the country, he's not alone in it, he has people working for him, advisors, etc, he's probably more capable than a lot of younger candidates, and the Republican Senate is a good thing and will make sure that Hurricane Biden does not make too much destruction along its path
Right now fair or not, eventually Americans will need a leader and accept it, starting January 21st, Biden will be their President, the same way in 2016 the country was divided and Trump won - as long as Kamala does not run things, it should be OK, Americans will have to live in the communist era for a while, and hopefully by 2024 Trump can resume or someone else Republican who can restore democracy and national security - but America WILL need a leader through this tough times to come and this g pandemic that everybody wants to get over with so we could all move on to better things.
Look , I am 67 and I am old person with one leg in grave so how old is Biden at 78 ?
I'm the first person who does not look forward to being anywhere close to your age Tasman1, but I still acknowledge that some people live well past that age, and not all are carrying dentures and using walkers, I have known many, and they have been more active and full of energy than the generation of fornicators and couch potatoes
Sorry to hear that at 67 you have 1 foot in your grave already, that's sad, you might as well have your funeral ahead of time and just get buried alive than - testimony like that makes me not look forward to that age even more
There are people in their 100's and late 90's that survived COVID19.
Not to mention that people at that age must not work but be with family , grand children e.t.c.
Right, good point I guess, people spend most of their life working & studying, but having a work / life balance is possible I guess, some people are proud of what they do, working keeps your brain active and busy, and at that age you can still work and be with your family and friends.
And worst ... what if Biden finish in old nursing home ? what we will see is this ,,,,,,,,U.S.A. President rule world not from White House but from nursing home
lol ! Well maybe this whole election was a big SCAM to convert America into a communist country and Sharia Law, maybe Biden's choice of Kamala Harris was strategic, he knew that his replacement would gain the "sympathy" vote from the clueless and naive American, and that's the danger that awaits, should she take over or win in a future election. I really don't see Kamala leading America into prosperity, her personal values and ideologies go against every concepts of "Making America Better Again", and in her case it would be more like "Make America more Radical and Unsafe again" - she welcomes anybody illegal or not, even those from countries which represent a high risk of terrorism. Look what is happening France, and other countries in Europe, they were too loose on immigration laws, the amount of crime from terrorism, beheadings, shootings, car ramming and other have skyrocketed in the last several years - there was a reason Trump wanted to build a wall and limit immigration from countries posing a "high risk", I think it is reasonable for Americans to want to be safe in their own countries without the constant threat of being blasted by a group of radicals invoking the name of God and treating the rest of the world as infidels because they do not believe in their MESSED UP cause based on a RIGGED religion they invented, which condones CRIME, TORTURE and MURDER in the name of what is supposed to be a LOVING GOD. The situation in America could get far worse if Kamala is leading, why because she will get the sympathy votes. Biden got the votes because Trump pissed off a group of people and ran his mouth and some think that Trump was not a good leader in this pandemic. If not for this pandemic, I don't see ANY reason why Trump would lose, he would have won effortlessly - Trump certainly does not win the popular vote, he needed the electoral votes, unfortunately he apparently offended women, minorities, the press, Muslims, etc, according to many, YET the very same people who felt offended by Trump also benefited from Trump's work in the last 4 years, but they decided to betray Trump after all he has done for them, economy, jobs, money, markets doing well, etc, oh well, now they will have to live with their votes, I guess they prefer a communist country rather than one that is free and SAFE, they prefer a President with bed side manners even though he/she can't deliver F all in comparison other than ridiculous policies that will run the deficit, debt and KILL millions of jobs.
This election's result was certainly not based on common sense.
wow , do you think Putin or Kim Jong-un will accept to visit U.S. President in nursing home to talk world politic ?
Not all elderly people end up in nursing homes - I don't like the term nursing homes, I call them slaughter houses, because that is what they are in most cases, unless you have $10k or more USD to pay PER MONTH for decent care. Same in Canada, the situation is really bad, elderly abuse is not isolated, it is an epidemic, it is a real problem. Why do you condemn Biden to a nursing home already ?
He will have all the care needed at the White House, he can still walk, travel, wipe his own arse, and the day he will be unable to fulfill his duties, the Vice President will take over, God help everyone if that is the case, her agenda is far more damaging to the country's prosperity and SAFETY, yes even more so than Obama
Whatever the case may be what's done is done, the tainted votes decided this election - let's hope for a strong Republican Senate - whatever happens in America in those 4 years will have repercussion around the world, not just America, so that's why we are ALL in it, with a Republican Senate the situation will not be as bad - even Biden himself knows it will be challenging to push his agendas, he was expecting a Democrat Blue wave sweep - the only thing I do hope is that Biden gets a bipartisan deal on a good stimulus package - this will be important IMO, as far as raising corporate taxes and such bad timing. Then you have the mid-terms in 2022, there is a risk that Democrats regain the Senate, if that is the case, this will allow Biden to push through his agendas for the remaining second half of his term, that would be the worst case scenario - and if stock markets are high right now is because they are betting on a Republican Senate, which is usually the best deal for the economy. If that changes to a blue sweep in 2022, things will turn around quick. Biden's agendas will cost millions of lives and cause the deficit and debt to rise big time. The risk of America being involved in a war during his term are much higher as well - and relations with North Korea will not be as good as with Trump, tensions will rise, Biden does not have any intention to change his stance towards N Korea, yet he has vested interest in China, the very country that is responsible for this world genocide of COVID19. But yeah even Trump had big money interests in China, nothing wrong with China other than the CCP, it all comes down to the government and the coverups and lies and pressure / influence they had on the WHO to delay recognition of a world emergency and pandemic status, these bad decisions cost the world a pandemic that could very well last 2-3 years !!! and unfortunately thanks to the Immunity act, it allows them to continue to get away with more pandemics, more virus outbreaks, etc. look at the situation there now, they are doing very well, whilst the world is collapsing - FUNNY, we have news about vaccines, but zero news about a China vaccine.......and they are back to their old ways in regards to wild animals, wet markets, etc.
One ting though, if mRNA methods of vaccines prove to be effective, this would be very good news, it would be a major breakthrough - it means they would be able to quickly make a vaccine for any future viruses, hopefully mRNA proves to be successful and prevent any future pandemic. The idea behind mRNA is innovative, even though unproven as of yet, it uses your body as its own lab to build its medicine - so they don't have to reproduce it in lab, the mRNA uses your own cells to produce what needs to be produced, just like a computer program running. In theory this could be very good news to create vaccines for conditions that were once impossible, question is, will the big drug companies BLOCK progress, who knows, but technically mRNA should be able to be effective against any future viruses, unless China decides to engineer new viruses that counter these measures, I would not be surprised though. Let's wait first to see how effective mRNA really is, and the fact that China has nearly wiped the pandemic in their country without even a vaccine is sketchy, something stinks about that, it does not only come down to restrictions they have......
I would have thought that China would be the FIRST to release an effective vaccine to the world, they have the resources and facilities, what a SHAME, that would have been the least they could do, and offer it FREE too.
Luckily the world had TRUMP, and thanks to Trump's administration and its funding, it allowed for a fast tracked vaccine initiative, Americans will get their vaccine in 2021, they will not have to wait 3 years, 5 years, like they would have, had another President lad the country, how many people are going to be grateful to Trump when they get their vaccines in 2021 and save their lives ? I wonder........even people who stabbed him in the back by voting Biden, they too will get the vaccine, hopefully they send Trump a thank you letter !!!
