    Sure, let's just let them die completely alone without even a human presence. I guess it has come to such extremes that we must eliminate all human contact just to save ourselves. Robots don't care if you live or die, much like our "President". God be with them. God help us all!

    If we all were to listen to Trump, he's going to be all alone like Will Smith in, "I Am Legend", talking to mannequins at a video rental store and paying the cashier for the gas he just pumped, then asking and waiting for a receipt. He'll then argue with the "gas station attendant", demanding to speak to the manager. He'll become even more of a raging lunatic.

    In the fifties and sixties I don't remember ever having a babysitter. Kids more or less took care of each other. Times sure have changed. For the better? I don't know.
