More Corona madness....the drama continues

Post by greggy » Thu Jun 25, 2020 8:39 am

Hi All....

So let us keep major politics out of this.

Last few days down under, in one state, the media has been banging on, cause the govt gives the talking points, about how there is a major corona out break, there is like 20 new cases for last few days......sheesh....

Now the nongs down here, seem to have forgotton, idea was to slow so hospitals could cope....

We did pretty well, had 102 deaths, till a few days ago when unfort. an 80 yr old succumbed.

We have some states refusing to open borders, we now have lockdowns starting again in that state it seems...

The media feeds this frenzy now, we seem to be a nation of multi culture but brain dead.

The biggest lol is, they have sold out of poo paper again, for gawds sakes, this shows how stupid we really are down here...when I say we, I do not mean everybody.

The drama only continues as long as the masses buy into it. It will go away here on 11/4/2020 .

I think it would be good if mods required greggy to use a translator. It's like he's wearing a mask.

Media, and governments also, have to much invested in this disease being the next black death. They're not go to let it go quietly, or risk looking like fools.

in Australian slang, nong is used as a pretty mild and/or endearing insult. a bit of a twit, or idiot. nothing too mean or horrid is meant by calling someone a nong.

Its straight up political where I have been. If it's a red county no mask required. If it's a blue county its required but they wear the mask around their kneck, or with their nose hanging out, or forget to put it on but tell you.. you need one.

What I think is or has happened here, is the virus has given them the podium and spotlight, and this has given some relevance and elevated them like never before.

It def did not start political or personal, but it seems to have morphed, they are now addicted to that attention etc.

I am sure it is the same there, as here, in that if govts ask people to do things, most will not follow the request, so they have to make it law.

I have had many people tell me what they are doing, and when i asked why, they would explain that the politicians on the box said this, or, that was ok now.

I always ask, do you need the govt to tell you what to do? I.E you do not need them to tell you to practice basic hygeine or distancing, anyways, the reality is, yes, the govt does have to tell most people.

All i can say is my state has pretty much eradicated the virus, we are back to business as usual, our shows are going ahead unrestricted, football is back with crowds. Yep, very comfortable to keep those borders shut tight! Once the world reaches herd immunity which i think is getting pretty close now, then it will flip on it's head and it will be our turn to be screwed.

Yeah..that is the problem, you cannot get rid of it.....

Our 2 major airlines bleeding money and shedding jobs, with the case load here, we should be actively getting as much movement and teavel as possible....,

We cannot run and hide from this.......well, not for much longer......the plot has been lost ?

But there is a tonne of trials finishing and they are finding some effective treatments for when people start going down hill so in one way buying a bit more time is not such a bad thing. Certainly people have had enough of the shut downs, just see the beaches in the u.k. And now the U.S. owns one of our major airlines. Better than the Chinese though.
