President Trump, at a White House event Tuesday with first lady Melania Trump, said his administration would “very much put pressure” on governors to reopen their states’ schools in the fall amid the coronavirus outbreak. “We don't want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons, they think it's gonna be good for them politically, so they keep the schools closed, no way,” Trump said after noting that the administration of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently announced plans to reopen schools in that state. “So, we are very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools.”

No! Do not open schools. I think it is far more important to destroy the future of our youth to save a few elderly from passing. The future is our elderly and we most destroy our youth's future to protect our elderly. Kids have missed graduations, proms, countless gathering events (sports college mixers and so much more). How many weddings are not really celebrated. What have the elderly sacrificed? I know I will be seen as cruel and inhumane but at some point, the world belongs to the young and we should recognize that and embrace it. I am in the 'at risk' age group. Its my responsiblity to see to my health. It kills me that my children, my nieces and nephew and countless other young people have not had the joys and learning experiences I had whenI was their age. Let those whose future is at rish and have such a low risk of death from this disease live a full life.

The leftist and liberal Democrats will put one of their top constituency groups, the teachers unions, in charge of the resistance to re-opening the public schools by demanding all sorts of additional federal funding for teachers before the schools will be allowed to open, while actually trying to keep the schools closed until after the election.

Keeping the single population group (those under age 18) that has a zero percent chance of dying from coronavirus out of school is not based in the slightest on science. We did not do that with polio, measles, small pox or any other epidemic that truly threatened children. It is based entirely on ego, power and theatrical politics intended to convince the adult population that only liberal politicians will save families from certain calamity. Big Brother cares!

Opening schools will not put the elderly at risk. There is no evidence anywhere that kids can carry and transmit the virus. The kids and the majority of teachers are in super low risk groups anyway. Everyyone else can take very simple precautions. Just today I heard from a maintenance man at a Catholic School in the Chicago Archdiocese. He said that "the rules" are ridiculous. Teachers aren't even allowed to decorate their classrooms. Bulletin boards must be bare. Kids will us a desk and chair. Nothing can be brought from home, they are to stay at their desks and eat at their desks, masked all day except for the time that they are eating. He says that it will never work in practice. Knowing my six small grandchildren, I agree totally. I saw a video of Rand Paul this afternoon, it could have been from today, talking about the need for these kids to get back to a normal life and the complete lack of problems in every country in the world where kids have returned to school. Fauci was there too, very "concerned" about this "new wave." I am so sick of that guy. He doesn't want his time as the big shot to end. I haven't trusted him from the beginning. Has he ever actually treated patients...or does everything he "knows" come from models and statistics. Everything he has said he's reversed and everything else he's been flat out wrong. Why is anyone still listening to him?

Schools should open and no masks. Our children deserve better and need an education. I don’t believe half the stuff those supposedly in the know say about the virus and how to protect yourself - Just the left telling lies and trying their best to destroy America. Bitterness and hate will get you nowhere. Everyone is is going to die - right now I would like to live normally.

You gotta love Joe Biden.The guy has been part of the problem in Washington for 47 years. But now? Now, he is really going to get after it! Finally, the old geezer promises to fix everything that ails you — everything he has neglected for nearly five decades. And he is going to do it all in just four years. After he is gone, Mr. Biden’s Wikipedia page will say: “1973-2021: Accomplished nothing in Washington; hung out with segregationists. 2021-2025: Fixed everything; saved world.” Economic doldrums of the Obama non-recovery economy got you down?

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken
