“Every one of us could be devastated by it”

That time the Federal government’s experts told grannys and five year-olds to always use condoms. Orlwiz.

Now the same “experts” are telling politicians that lone paddle-boarders will cause ventilator queues.

    They also stopped gun purchases because the US had record March gun sales and G-d forbid that you go fishing or playing golf on your own.

    Yes a lot of the restrictions are downright silly.

    I see the local homeless guy sitting near the station ( I know someone local is keeping an eye on him) what’s he supposed to do?

    Spend 24/7 in his tent?

    Phillip Adams’ finest hour.

    It must be wonderful to be paid big bucks to lie to the public.

    The problem seems to be that ‘crowds’ are comprised of ‘individuals’. It’s easiest to prevent a crowd forming if you prevent individuals from arriving at a location. /sarc

    But that’s the whole point of having the Ministry of Truth…!

    You must be seeing things that are not there.
    I distinctly remember that Bob Hawke eliminated poverty in 1990.

    Perhaps we can use the same criteria that allow the African non-gangs to be in the same place at the same time?

    Wubug 1 – HIV 0:

    Global CONDOM shortage is looming after world’s largest producer is forced to shut down factories due to coronavirus (28 Mar)

    HIV/AIDS never stopped condom manufacturing! Maybe the lockdowns will actually cause the feared baby boom.

    Seen on Instapundit:

    Day 9 of the quarantine –

    My wife called out from the other room and asked if I ever get a stabbing pain in my chest like someone has a voodoo doll of me and is stabbing it.
    I replied: No
    She responded, how about now ?

    My wife volunteers with victim of crimes, care packages, an ear to talk organizing memorials and stuff. She’s rarely off the phone now because of the extra anxiety. The ramifications are going to felt for years.

    NO, NO, NO – he said child poverty.

  12. Bosnich

    A group of us Erks in the RAF were once told to ..”spread out in groups of one”.
    Perhaps the officer who said that has now moved into a position in World Government.

  13. Lazlo

    Bosnich, once in WW1 RFC fighter pilots were told to ‘hold their positions’. A pilot radioed back that there are ‘no skyhooks up here’.

    It was a great piece of advertising though. Spouse was a national creative director at the time, wished he had come up with it.

  15. Up The Workers!

    This stupidity was obvious weeks ago when Dodgy Dan’s Blackshirts/”Get Pell Squad” geniuses were rounding up dangerous lone offenders who were innocently sitting alone on a beach with a social distance of around 1 person to every 5 hectares, and demanding that they go stand in supermarket queues and be coughed and sneezed upon with a legal density of 1 person to every 1.5 metres.

    “Finking” – it’s not one of Labor’s(sic) strong points.

    Labor(sic) – it’s like Mensa for Morons.

    Maybe these Labor Party “Sherlocks” should go and arrest Cardinal Pell again – just for fun?

  16. Catfeesh?

    Hmm. Pretty sure RFC pilots weren’t able to radio the ground.

    MATTHEW MEYERSON: FIVE COVID-19 THESES
    POSTED ON APRIL 3, 2020 BY SCOTT JOHNSON IN CORONAVIRUS
    1. COVID-19 is very highly transmissible.
    2. COVID-19 causes severe illness in medical professionals and otherwise healthy young people.
    3. It is hard to compare deaths from COVID-19 to deaths from influenza.
    4. I do not believe that we are overreacting to COVID-19.
    5. Until we have treatments and vaccines, preventing transmission is the only way to go.

    “Ground Reports – Healthcare Focus – What’s Going On In Your City, Town, Neighborhood?…”

    “There’s something really odd, a profound disconnect of sorts, between what the media is sharing and the reality of what the general public is reporting from their own experience.”

    Another disease – almost entirely among homosexuals- entirely mis-cast for political reasons.

    If you were Joe Bob in the suburbs your only real risk was getting some pooftas blood because they couldn’t stop them donating because discrimination.

  20. Bosnich

    Ref. the bowling ball ads….. the Red Cross continued to take blood from anyone, for 2 years, at the time of the HIV crisis as they did not wish to upset those in the Gay community. My son was involved in a motor cycle accident at this time which required him to receive 11 units of blood. At the time we, his parents, had no idea of Red Cross policy. Thankfully tests showed my son to be clear. A number of young people with haemophilia were not so lucky . Needless to say I have never donated to anything to do with the Red Cross since.

    I preferred Doug Mulrays Aids Bowling advert, but sadly can no longer find it anywhere.

    [Chuckle] A good story but definitely apocryphal. There was no voice radio communication during WW1. Only morse code.

    Grim reaper ads, Y2K, climate change, Covid…..do I see a trend of exaggeration here? Surely worth a psychology PhD? Some uni could re-purpose the gender studies department.

  24. Squirrel

    Billy Connolly nailed the over the top aspect of the AIDS awareness campaign when he warned that anyone who’d had a wank since the end of the First World War was at risk…….
