BREAKING: Scott Morrison has directed ABS to stop publishing information that reveals the number of international travellers coming into and out of Australia. QLD Health reveals that half of all arrivals into Aust are not citizens or permanent residents & unvaccinated. #auspol
We know international travellers and the stupid quarantine in inner city hotels keep causing COVID19 spikes. The scumbags have let all sorts into Australia, while Australians seeking to return home are deferred time and again. That on top of destroying the NBN which would by now be boosting jobs and allowing work from home at a large scale. Bunch of third rate (to be kind) no hopers with no morals, no ethics and fuck all brains!

It's embarrassing to admit that Scott Morrison is our PM, and Barnaby Joyce is Deputy PM.

Hard to think of two worse people to be running our country.

@HBS Guy Monk, what percentage of Australians are vaccinated? With 70% vaccinated, Oregon officially opened up today. Everything is open, social distancing is not required, and masks are not required.

To clarify, 52% of Oregonians are fully vaccinated. Others have had one dose, and they are counting them to reach the 70% number.

I haven’t got the accurate stats to hand—the govt has stuffed up the rollout of vaccinations. Will see if I can get some stats.

No, that isn’t very good. The sooner your population gets vaccinated, the sooner things can get back to normal.
It's appalling.

But then again, not surprising at all considering our current federal government and Prime Minister.

Oh, and our Deputy Prime Minister was fined the other day for not wearing a mask. No joke.

See the obstacles we're facing here?

What is the hold up? Is it supply of vaccine? Lack of personnel to administer it? Lack of venues to do it at? What?

In Oregon, the National Guard was used in cooperation with various health systems. I got both of my doses at a large expo center in Salem, the state capitol. The first dose was administered by a National Guard medic, the second by a civilian nurse. In Portland, a major convention center was used. And now, people can get vaccinated at pharmacies. We are at a point where the only people who are not vaccinated (aside from younger children) are people who don't want to be vaccinated.

Granted, it takes coordination and planning and record keeping, but it doesn't seem to be so terribly hard, given the availability of human resources and, of course, the vaccines.

It's supply of brains in our federal government.

The Australian Government’s response to Covid-19 has been characterised by both success and innovation, especially in the initial response to the pandemic, and by embarrassing and highly damaging failures, notably the false promise of the CovidSafe app, abuse of the JobKeeper program by company directors, quarantine mismanagement, avoidable deaths in aged care facilities and failure to ensure the timely procurement and distribution of vaccines.

Last year Australia was the envy of many other nations with our success in flattening the Covid-19 curve. However, the sad fact is that Australia has now fallen from being a world leader to being hopelessly at the back of the pack in terms of vaccinations.

There have been 20,684,917 Covid-19 test done in Australians to date(99.9% negative for Covid-19). And, since 19.28%(5M) of the population is 0-14 years old, I'd say pretty much the entire adult population has been tested. These are the objective facts.


There are only 317 Covid 19 cases still active in all of Australia.This means that out of the 30,610 total cases of Covid-19(0.1% of the population), minus the 910 deaths, 29,383 Australians have already recovered. Also, no one has died indirectly from Covid-19 in Australia, since Oct 5, 2020.

In Queensland there have been 1,700 total Covid-19 cases to date, with 1,630 recoveries and 7 deaths. Do these objective fact indicate a fucking deadly plague, or that we are all going to die? Yet 4 people test positive for a weaker strain of Covid-19, in the last 24 hrs, and the entire state immediately goes into lockdown, and we are forced to wear useless masks and keep apart from each other. Shops have closed down again, and patronage numbers are restricted again. This isn't even rational. Stop listening to actors and well-paid egotists. This disease is NOT a death sentence like aids or some cancers.

Just look at the facts and think for yourself!! Your civil liberties are being taken away from you, at the whim of your own leaders. And, you do nothing about it, except complain about the distribution of vaccines, that the majority of people don't even need. Your government is building quarantine centers, requiring locator apps, and hiring overseas enforcement thugs to do its dirty work, and you don't even bat an eyelid??? I'm with Squire, you DO deserve the government you get.


If I was paranoid, or a conspiracy theorists, I'd say that the government was calling for a lockdown every 3 months, so that it could keep accessing its state of emergency funding($150M). Which only has a 3 months shelf life. But I'm not. But the minute paid thugs come to my home and question me why I was somewhere I shouldn't have been, I'm outta here!! In the meantime, I'm voting these brainless self-centered morons, and all of their gutless wannabes out of office.

Always reading what you want to read, seeing what you want to see, and trolling me personally. But, you NEVER attack the FACTS I present do you?, Or, even my interpretation of those FACTS? I guess when you really have nothing to say, then squawking like a chicken still gives you attention.

I read what you posted. I just choose to filter out the bullshit and focus on your stupidity. Take for example the rest of what you posted after what I quoted above ... it's just more of your usual blah blah blah with zero substance.

"I read what you posted. I just choose to filter out the bullshit and focus on your stupidity.".

That's the same thing dumb-dumb, as reading only what you want to read(a tautology). I know typing with your tongue always out can be a distraction, but, what specific blah blah do you find stupid, or without substance? Could you be a bit more specific with your insults? Or, is hiding behind major vagueness your only forté? The problem is not what I say. The problem is apathetic, political one-dimensional toadies like you, that don't want to hear it. So my well researched comments are NOT intended for the closed-minded!

So, come on genius, let's hear more of your 3rd grade responses. Like, "All of it"!! Or, "Me right, because me say me right"!! This reminds me of the story of the person in the crowd in ancient Egypt, who was stoned to death, for showing people how they were being conned. Or, the little girl who told the crowd, that the king was actually naked. You are the crowd!

If you need to attack me, instead of explaining WHY the economy is booming, in a climate where thousands of business have closed down, unemployment has skyrocketed, and our travel and hospitality industries has been almost destroyed, then maybe it's time for the third string to help provide more substance to your claim! Clearly, you can't.

This government is so unbelievably corrupt i have given up all hope of any sensible feedback from the Australian community.

If these guys can get away with what they've been getting away with, we're screwed. And we deserve to be.

Don't give up. That's exactly what the government wants its citizens to do. One e-mail, one letter, one phone call, or one facebook comment can make all the difference in the world. These bastards are only concerned with their power and their legacy. We are all just a necessary nuisance to them. That sometimes require the occasional token gesture to appease.

The government can do and spin anything it wants, as long as there is no pushback from the people. Simply text to these mental midgets, to look for a new line of work before the next election, and this shit ends. The only real power the people have, and the politicians fear, is their collective votes. Anything can be done when people stand together, and start thinking for themselves. Turn off that mind-numbing tele, and do your own research, and look for the truth. Listen for what they are NOT telling you, not what they are. The facts just don't justify the reaction. The facts just don't justify the fear and the hype.

These egotistic idiots, and their narcissistic media cronies, are all just actors playing a role. Our elected representative are there, only to maintain, and protect our most basic needs. Life, Liberty, and our Pursuit of Happiness! They are NOT autonomous, serving their own self-interests! They are all PUBLIC SERVANTS!! Don't let them forget that.
