    once again.  It got out of control due to the security guards rooting infected travelers and also sharing a smoke lighter.

    That might have been what originally happened but it still doesn't rebut my comment. 

    No using every tool available is like a triathlete forgetting to take their cycling shoes.  Yeah you'll get there (maybe) but it'll be a hell of a lot easier if you had them.

    The following businesses will not close: supermarkets, grocery stores, bottle shops, pharmacies, petrol stations, banks, newsagencies, post offices

    Gotta love it.  You can get alcohol and lotto tickets but you can't buy a tin of paint so you can do something slightly more productive than binge watching all the shows you binge watched the first time round.

    Isn't it best to slam the door on this before it escapes in new areas, or is this a sly way of saying we'll now be going for a controlled suppression, where we'll just try to get all the East coast into a constant flow through the health system until we reach herd immunity?

    Expecting a Government to do something sensible before they actually have to do it.  Interesting concept.  I like it.  Let me know if it ever happens.

  4. Simple question.  When is it legal to blockade roads?

    If you happen to be a white protester and you glue yourself to the road, thats deemed illegal.

    If you an indigenous or Traditional owner, and you  park your car across the road, it appears to be legal.

    The Story

    No report of protesters getting dragged off the road, being fined and/or locked up.  

    Not sure I quite understand "equality" in this situation.

    Update COVID-19 - Brisbane’s story bridge has opened for the first time in over 100 years preventing the grubby coronavirus riddled South side from entering the prestigious North side.

    No worries.  We all use the Gateway anyway. 

  6. Scary indeed.  But not the first time a virus has taken out a very fit athlete.  Thinking back, one thinks of V-Tach that hit Greg Welsh many years ago that he attributed to training while he had a virus.

    But stories like this have been around for a little while now.  Multiple organs failure, Blood clots on multiple organs, scarred lungs, and now myocarditis have all been reported in the mainstream press.  Considering that the full list of long term impacts of the virus are still virtually unknown, We may find over time that the number of deaths directly attributable to the virus will be surpassed by the number of deaths caused by ongoing complications from the virus.

    Here's hoping that all you die-hard trainers are sensible about what you do now.

    Too be fair to the Broncos, often they don't leave it to the last 20.

    No.  Bedt game of the year by thrm. Boyd at the back seems to have made a difference. Now if Milford could get injured they might win a game.

    Judging by the demographics of the brain dead dimwits doing the wrong thing I reckon target advertising during the bachelor and footy telecasts and you will likely cover 99% 

    Hey the AFL is the best thing on TV at the moment.  

    Far better than watching the Broncos fall apart in the last 20 minutes .... again.  One can only cry into ones rum so many times before the alcohol content becomes too diluted to be worth drinking.

    "He condemned those who targeted statues as "angry mobs" trying to deface "our most sacred memorials".

    "Keystone, South Dakota (CNN)President Donald Trump on Friday made an impassioned appeal to his base while in the shadow of Mount Rushmore instead of striking a unifying tone, railing against what he called a "merciless campaign" by his political foes to erase history by removing monuments some say are symbols of racial oppression." - CNN  Link

    ... unless scomo comes out and says eliminating it is now our goal and we will all be doing 6 weeks.   

    Its obvious to everybody that elimination is no longer an option and suppression is an unrealistic and unattainable goal. 

    Whether they have a Plan Z is unknown but is equally obvious that just doing what we've done before isn't going to get us to either scenario.

    Social media and commercial tv are full of ads and info. 

    Even if its friends sharing stuff on Facebook. 


    I get all my Covid-19 information from that bastion of knowledge known as Transitions.

    There some really knowledgeable people there who know all kinds of stuff.

    Meanwhile.  When’s alcohol being banned? 

    It won't.  The Government makes too much from excise and taxes.  And besides history has shown that banning something doesn't work.  People will always find a way around the ban.  

    Smoking won't either for exactly the same reason.

  13. Subjective Analysis

    The local shopping centre was significantly quieter than same time last week, more people were wearing masks and the toilet paper aisle was conspiciously empty of stock.


    Normality and Covid cannot co-exist

    The ones that aren’t home when checked on. 

    you get one chance. Stay home. If not. Hotel it is.  

    Still reckon Christmas Island might be a viable place for a couple or 4  weeks.  Likely to be a bigger deterrent than a simple hotel.

    Oh watch out - if you say anything more about the two puffy lipped idiots the brother of one of them might have you for racial vilification 🤣 


    We have a new leader

    Now more unpopular than Melbourne Security guards and Sydney Border Force officials.

  16. If I was a betting man I'd quickly be putting money on Tammy Duckworth, Kamala Harris or Susan Rice to be the first woman president of the USA.

    Why them?

    Because one of them will be Joe Bidens running mate for the next Presidential election. (Rumour has it Kamala Harris will be given the nod) Given Bidens age, theres a chance he might croak while in office leaving his VP to be the succeeding President...and first woman President.

    Haha.  Its only a mask.

    Forget the masks.  Just wish the various government would grow a pair and get serious about the small minority that flout the rules and ruin it for the rest of us.

    Lie on the border declaration, spread covid for 8 days all over town and then refuse to co-operate when you get caught.  $4000 fine + a 2 week holiday in a motel. (hopefully without internet and social media)

    Obviously not a serious enough deterrent.  Maximum penalties for having false information on a Stat Dec are significantly higher.  

    How about a registering a criminal conviction, and $10000+ fine  and 12+ months in Jail for deliberately lying on the border declaration and then increase from there if the person actually has covid.

    Queensland’s chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said she was “very, very disappointed” in the actions of the two women and would be moving them to quarantine in hotels.

    Hopefully with an armed police guard on the door because theres absolutely no guarantee they're going to stay in isolation in a hotel for 2 weeks.
