Well you folks over 75 should be very afraid of Biden and his minders.

Joe Biden has announced the creation of a “Public Health Advisory Committee,” consisting of Democratic experts to advise him about how to best grapple with the coronavirus during the campaign.

The bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel — a prime architect of Obamacare — is the most famous person on the committee. Why is that important? Emanuel made headlines a few years ago by writing in The Atlantic that he wants to die at age 75 — younger than Joe Biden is today — and he thinks we should want that too. From his piece:

"Here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic."

Emanuel better hope that Biden doesn’t read his Atlantic piece. I suspect if Good Old Joe ever did, he would yell that Emanuel was full of smelly stuff and demand that his public-health adviser step outside.

Fred, history has shown that Ezekiel has been wrong about a lot of things. Perhaps the man (or woman) behind the curtain is keeping Biden in an aseptic bubble to protect him.
