    Good for Insurance Journal for treating the issue of re-opening with intelligence. Usually, it is portrayed by simpletons as if a cartoon: “lock down, good. Re-open bad.” “lock down saves lives. People who want to re-open only care about money.”

    Meanwhile, the United Nations estimates that this government ordered recession will cause over 1,000,000. children to lose their lives, the World Bank predicts that 160 million will fall into abject poverty ($1.9 dollars a day), and mental health experts say that 1/3 of Americans now exhibit extreme anxiety or clinical depression.

    But I guess when people say that every life matters, they mean American lives only.

      Those articles say lockdowns save lives because of the overwhelming evidence that says they do. Keep trolling, the facts disagree with you CONSTANTLY. You’re dishonest.

        I didn’t say the lock down didn’t save lives. And then you call me a liar for the 127th time.

        You are despicable. I have no idea why Insurance Journal so corruptly allows you to post hate all the time.

        1,000,000. children will die. And you apparently agree that is okay.
