Man up and do it deliberately …

… like Daniel Andrews’ VAD doctors. This hysterical (in both senses) ad is being run in Oregon and California.

    There are few high-traffic businesses more densely populated than grocery stores. In fact, within the U.S. economy retail supermarkets have the highest foot traffic of any business sector in the entire economy; that’s just an empirical fact…. and the coronavirus impact increased that foot traffic by an average of 40 percent.
    ♦First, with approximately 90 percent of the total U.S. population penetrating through grocery outlets; and with 100% of that massive number of consumers going through checkout lanes; if the COVID-19 viral strain was as significant as claimed by the worst-case data, then supermarket cashiers would have been the highest exposed profession of U.S. workers in the entire nation. There wouldn’t even be a close second place.
    Considering that metric; and considering the overall population penetration & density within the business operation; there has not been an employee-based business disruption due to the coronavirus. Put another way: the coronavirus has not stopped the function of the highest human interface occupation in the entire U.S. economy.
    ♦Secondly, think about the businesses that are closed; perhaps think about your job that may have been shut down…. now frame your risk based on the supermarket example as highest human interface and highest population penetration in any business field.
    If the #1 at risk industry has operated, essentially without disruption and with almost zero substantive mitigation, while carrying the largest population exposure rate, then all other less-exposed business operations would have significantly less operational risk.
    Why would anyone be concerned about opening their business?

    What a hysterical joke.
    The ad says stay home but one of the people you could kill is “your child”.
    Stupid too.

    No doubt paid for with the previously collected taxes of those that no longer have a job – well done ‘State Nannies’, well done.

    What else to say? They seem to be frolicking like idiots.

    Now the stats show the truth is the opposite to what the lying “experts” with their SISO machines screamed from the covered rooftops, we have to scare you some other way: feelings because they are just so like…

    I see now that “possible and even “probable” diagnoses of the Wuhan Virus Flu are being counted as certainties. Lying, stupid and proud of it.

  9. CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES – GOVERNMENT EDITION

    Here are the official Coronavirus Guidelines:
    1. Basically, you can’t leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.
    2. Masks are useless. But they will protect you. They can save you, no they can’t, they’re useless, but wear one anyway. Now they’re mandatory. But maybe. Or not.
    3. Stores are closed, except for the ones that are open.
    4. You should not go to the hospital unless you have to go there. Stay out of the ER at all costs unless you’re having a medical emergency then it’s okay.
    5. This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster. Stay calm and carry on.
    6. Gloves won’t help, but they can still help. Especially if you wear the same pair for hours and everywhere you go, then you can not spread germs, nope. #science
    7. Everyone needs to stay home, but it’s important to go out because sun. Sunlight will kill the virus but not if the virus kills you first by walking in the sunlight where you may be exposed to the virus.
    8. There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes.
    9. The virus has no effect on children except those it has affected or will affect.
    10. Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested yet, and a tiger.. and one really deadly but also possibly fictional but very sick bat.
    11. You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms.
    12. In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but also never go out to the grocery store so eat shelf stable processed crap and stay inside your four walls but also stay healthy.
    13. It’s better to get some fresh air, but you may be arrested if you’re getting fresh air the wrong way and most importantly, don’t go to a park, the fresh air there is deadly.
    14. Under no circumstances should you go to retirement homes, but if you have to take care of the elderly and bring them food and medication then fine. Just wear gloves. The same ones. All day.
    15. If you are sick, you can’t go out, but you can go to the pharmacy to get your medications. Just don’t make eye contact cause you may spread your sickness that way.
    16. You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn’t wear masks or gloves. But you have to leave your groceries outside for 3 hours to be decontaminated by the fresh air that also may have virus particles floating around in it.
    17. Taxi drivers are immune to the virus apparently since you can still take a taxi ride with a random taxi driver. Just don’t take the taxi to your mom’s house because you know. Stay away from your mom.
    18. You can walk around with a friend if you stay six feet apart but don’t visit with your family if they don’t live under the same roof as you. Even if you’ve all been locked inside for two months already. You may still have the virus and just not know it yet. You’ll find out. Wait another week. Wasn’t that week? Might be the next one. Keep waiting.
    19. You are safe if you maintain the appropriate social distance, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance. Social distancing means you shouldn’t leave your house and don’t be social, except you may go to the liquor store but don’t socialize there while you’re being socially distant.
    20. The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn’t say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily.
    21. The virus stays in the air – well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel further, maybe.
    22. We count the number of deaths but we don’t know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were “almost dead” to find out if that’s what they will die of…
    23. The virus will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity. But stay inside until the virus disappears.
    24. At all times obey zee Gruppenuhrer.

    Joke translated from Chinese: “It’s the year of the rat. So we all hide in our caves and only go out to look for food. We drag our food & save it for the future. We run away as soon as we see a human… 2021 will be the year of the Ox. Are we all going to eat grass?

    Look up “Sweden covid 19 statistics” on the internet.

    It’s crystal clear that their new cases each day have been dead flat on average for at least a fortnight.

    Their number of Chicom virus deaths is about what they might get from a severe but not extraordinary flu strain in the northern hemisphere winter. Maybe slightly higher, but not much. Certainly not anywhere near even one order of magnitude higher.

    How can anyone doubt that ScoMo, the Hunchback, Gladys, Pony Girl et. al. have totally overreacted?
    (As for McGowan, with WA’s virtual clean bill of health, words fail me.)

    CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES – GOVERNMENT EDITION

    Please note if you are a government employee or are a member of the CFMEU you can continue to work without affecting your pay or entitlements even if you are doing nothing but sitting at home playing games and watching porn. When we finally get back to work you will be able to take your holidays and receive your holiday loading and stay at home again.
    Remember if you dob in a neighbor for holding an 8 yr old’s birthday party regardless if the kids are all classmates and with each other at school, you will still be advancing the cause. Don’t hesitate to call the dob in hotline and get the parents fined enough so that they can’t afford food and die of hunger as this will be counted on the Corona virus death statistics. The more deaths we can accrue due to Corona the longer you can stay home.

    And it’s not just Sweden either.

    Belarus doesn’t appear to have people dying on the streets. Nor Brazil. Nor South Korea.

    Then there are the countries where a lockdown isn’t even conceptually possible (no matter how hard they tried) like India or Bangladesh.

    The problem for politicians is that absent the ridiculous fear, people will start to look soberly at what governments have done. I don’t think they want that to happen.

    Expect mass censorship and new maps being drawn with Brazil, Belarus and Sweden being replaced by water.

    California and Oregon are both overrun by barking mad leftists.

    I hope you are all starting to wrap your head around what us anti-vaxers have known for decades.

    The entire medical paradigm is one piece of impossible nonsense after another.

    Has anyone else noticed more perspex screens being installed at most retail stores. I first saw them go up at Woolies then Aldi, then at my local bakery. I now saw one go up at my local tattslotto agency.

    Go long perspex!

    Ah, but they have instituted distancing and hygiene rules – for customers.

    As we walk around the AlColesWool stores we see “social distancing” at work among staff too.

    So it’s the simple measures coupled with the apparently low rates of infection which have kept them open.

    We could have maintained those simple measures without the rest of the lockdown.

    One local business has a sign on the screen – “Please feed the staff alcohol and chocolate ONLY!”
