  1. You guys are hilarious. Any time anything is posted that doesn't fit your narrative you find a way to dismiss it, first Dave says it's fake news and now you are saying it's so real that it's common place. All while missing the key point-crime has increased so much the police are actively telling people basically its going to happen and here is what you should do.
  2. Whats misleading about the report I posted? Its saying exactly what is in the letter sent out by the police? Crime has skyrocketed and they are saying to just hand over your belongings. Sensible advice sure, but how is it misleading? They have had a 46% increase in car jackigns for goodness sakes and a 36% increase in crime in what I reckon would have already been a crime riddled city. What a disaster...
  3. Are you saying the report isn't true? I don't know what sites are legit or not? But the amount of outright lies that have come from the likes of WAPO and NY Times etc I don't know whats legit anyways.. https://thetop10news.com/2020/08/02/do-as-they-say-minneapolis-police-warn-people-to-obey-criminals-for-their-own-safety-as-violent-crime-surges-amid-blm-protests-2/ https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/police-chief-responds-after-robbery-spike-in-south-southwest-minneapolis https://www.rt.com/usa/496922-minneapolis-police-obey-criminals/ https://cloverchronicle.com/2020/08/02/minneapolis-police-tell-residents-to-obey-criminals-and-be-prepared-to-be-robbed/
  4. The crooks obviously didn't get the memo about "a civilian led department of community safety & violence prevention replacing the Seattle Police Department with: "culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections, "housing, food security, and other basic needs," and "trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis." What a sad time for normal people just wanting to go about their life and provide for their family... "Minneapolis police tell residents to obey criminals and ‘be prepared’ to be robbed The Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) told residents they should “be prepared” to hand over their phones, wallets, and purses to robbers. The MPD has reported a 46 percent increase in carjackings and a 36 percent increase in robberies compared to this same time last year, according to WCCO. Police in the city’s Third Precinct alone have received more than 100 reports of robberies and 20 reports of carjackings in just the last month. Officials are now telling residents to be ready and willing to comply with the demands of criminals in an email sent to Third Precinct residents. “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News. The email said citizens should listen to criminals and “do as they say.” The message warned that “some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun.”

    Why do something to prevent a problem when you can wait for it to spiral out of control to then act...
  6. No, these days it makes you culturally and sexualy insensitive. We need to be consciously aware of other peoples differences and treat them differently accordingly.... Apparently...
  7. Funny isn't it, how now its very front of mind if someone is a certain race, ethnicity, sexual orientation...its like we have gone the complete opposite of seeing everyone the same..

    Must have been a lot in Victoria from people exercising more than 5kms from their home as we are no longer allowed to do that, or for more than 1 hour...

    Another 650+ cases and I bet this dipshit premier will keep construction going.. "More than 650 cases of COVID-19 will be announced today in Victoria, along with a record number of deaths, according to media reports."

    Want to have a wadger? I would be extremely surprised (and impressed...) if Dan did the right thing, even if it meant upsetting his union mates... Though I bet he doesn't. "According to The Herald Sun, only supermarkets, pharmacies and service stations will be allowed to keep trading in Melbourne, with a possible exception carved out for hardware stores, which could stay open for tradies only."

    With these new stage 4 lockdowns about be announced in Vic what are the odds Dans union mates in the construction industry will be exempt
  13. Biden can hardly string a coherent sentence together, I wonder if the media will be as critical of him... Imagine if this incoherent mess about loving kids jumping on his lap was said by Trump!!

    Dave sometimes I just wonder if it's the internet and that I'm not expressing myself clearly enough, and sometimes i wonder if people are just trolls (not saying u are a troll) I don't know anything about Florida or Texas, and seeing I don't live there I don't think I'd be allowed to have an opinion anyway 🤣 It's pretty straight forward to me. This is all about getting the public to do the right thing. To do this they have to be informed and coerced. To be informed the government should be doing absolutely everything possible to get the messages across. Think about how we have been able to change behaviour with smoking and drink driving. You can't just say 'but people know drink driving/smoking is bad', it needs to be rammed into their head non stop. Look at it this way for just a little example. During an election period it's absolute blanket advertising. Every second add on TV, radio and the paper is about who to vote for. There are billboards, there are signs being driven around behind cars and scooters, your letter box gets stuffed with political crap. It's impossible to escape. If anyone tries to tell me the same effort as this has been put into informing the public on Covid related matters then you are a liar.

    Geezus sometimes conversations on this site.. I'd be better off knocking my head against a wall I swear.. Yes, normally the $400M they spend goes through those channels telling us how good they are. And yet I sat down and watched 2 hours of FTA TV today and didn't see a single add on Covid 19. Hence my original point that they need to do more/spend more on advising the public.. Hardly blitz advertising when you are being outdone by Snoop dog..

    You are actually spot on correct.

    Yes and for 'media' to push information they need to be paid advertisements from the government. Unless you rely on second hand someone said on Facebook for all your info? I've been watching free to air for 2 hours and haven't seen a single add covid related. I have seen Snoop Dogs menulog add about 50 times though... Like I said though if you stand by your statement I assume you expect the government can now eliminate their $400M a year advertising spend and just use your channels of info flow?

    That's assuming everyone is sitting around watching these daily briefings... I'm amazed you would think an issue so important wouldn't require an advertising blitz... We have advertising blitzes for everything else.

    By media we are talking about the news correct? If so yes it's not their job, their job it's to present the news of the day. But by all means I'd be very happy use your and Dave's suggestion and rely on the news to present government information and cut their advertising spend by $400 million a year! Also yes for something this important their should be leaflet drops. It's good enough for when an election is happening so it should be good enough for critical information.

    How about the same method they spend $400M on a year on telling us how good they are-TV and radio advertising. I know it's a crazy idea but heck it might just work 🤣
  22. I dont know anything about George W being a homophobe? But I thought what she did was great-showed that you can have difference in opinion or politics and still be friends. But it seems more and more now it's a case of either your with us or against us.. Sad.
  23. Lol nah, hugs and understanding is all you need

    Do you understand irony in what you are posting? For starters it's been raised by the media in the last few days-exactly. It's not the media's responsibility to get these messages out to the public, it's the governments. And the last few day is again well after the horse has bolted. Secondly I bet most of these people work for small companies that wouldn't even have a bloody HR department let alone the resources to be constantly checking with the DHS website. Regardless these are extraordinary times and the Government should be taking extraordinary steps to make sure struggling and stressed people are informed as best they can, not passing them the buck.. But hey what would I know, what the government is doing has been working a charm huh..
