    Meanwhile garage sales are illegal in Victoria, due to covid. Of the typical garage sale, I’ve seen more people standing around a dead snake.

    Human Rights Watch have been blotting their already blotted copybook lately.

    Human Rights Watch accuses Israel of ‘crimes against humanity’ (27 Apr)

    [Ambassador] Erdan on HRW report: A collection of lies and fabrications (28 Apr)

    Israel dismisses ‘propaganda’ HWR report by BDS supporter (27 Apr)

    “Human Rights Watch is known to have a long-standing anti-Israeli agenda, actively seeking for years to promote boycotts against Israel,” the ministry stated.

    “Their decision not to share this report for review or comment with any Israeli authority, is clear indication that it is a propaganda pamphlet, which lacks all credibility.

    Yep the lefty HRW are a bunch of antisemites and have been for decades. Get lost apocalypse kiddies, we know your game.

    There’s been a whole lot of comment today at Fairfax on an opinion piece by an entitled university person of Indian/Sri Lankan descent, where she promotes the line that the racist Scott Morrison government is picking on the brown people, namely Indians by shutting the door – temporarily. Of course Scotty from Marketing and the LNP are evil incarnate. But equally they must be stupid because they haven’t built tens of thousands of quarantine places, hundreds of kilometres from anywhere. There is almost a uniform lack of understanding of the roles of the States and the concept of modern quarantine which is to catch the few among many who actually have the disease. No, spartan ex holiday camps for anybody who feels like coming – sounds like the Mexican border – of course, with full backup hospitals and medical teams etc. And to note that plane loads of people who had boarded flights a few hours before, free of Covid, were all arriving suffering from it, is inconsequential. The federal government made, to me, the obvious decision. Shut them out – but wait, I received (the special, quailified) permission to see my father die, 2 months ago, before Covid became rampant in India and you are dnying my right as a citizen, regardless of my lack of health, to fly back immediately to my (other) country. It’s inhuman and racist!!!

    I think Michael quarantine is a Federal issue and it would timely to build proper facilities for now in appropriate places, for now and into the future, and not higgledy-piggledy hotels in cities.

    If I read the same article you mention, I thought it was quite honest and I did not see abuse of Scott Morrison there, but a general viewing of the problem in terms of her experience as an Australian citizen with an ill mother back in India and the intricacies of visiting and getting home again. I thought it quite respectful for an article in SMH, actually.

    We may be talking about different articles, so please excuse if that is so.

    Oddly, #SocialismIn5Words is trending on Twitter at the moment.
    Tune in for such brilliant responses as “education is a human right” and the real humdinger “If you’re afraid of socialism you’re afraid of yourself” (to which I would say, yes, quite possibly, and that still doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be afraid of socialism).

    I could never understand Robespierre’s writings and I suspect that many that lived in his time couldn’t either. All very well to be noble but if you can’t talk the talk and walk the walk with the common folk then off with your head it may be. Perhaps a very great misunderstanding.

    Are you trying to implying that he was a definite nerd , un maître de incompréhensible irrégulière verbs françois or even perhaps a genuine Asperbergers & thus definitely a protected person by all current standards …………………just like Martin Bryant

    It is designed to be misunderstood. Basically a nerd and a conman that justifies the base desires of a “democratic” populace while concealing the true implications of what he proposed. I am a philosopher king, and I know better… give me power and I will protect you. He sounded smart until the average punter realised that the Terror and General Maximum left them with the tab. At which point the axe was duly applied to the wise guy’s neck. Were it if we held politicians to such a standard before they turn the entire country into a shithole.

    Robespierre’s last words were shrieks of agony; a failed assassination attempt resulted in a shattered jaw from a misfired gun …. When he died the people applauded for 15 minutes straight.

    The sooner we increase global vaccine supply, the sooner all countries can stop competing against each other for a vaccine supply and can co-operate and even share.

    ooga booga competition is bad. Those evil big pharma companies should develop vaccines for free! I’ve never liked “intellectual” property (as much as I dislike “social” justice) at the same time this is just a sloppily disguised call for socialism and appropriation.

    Socialism does not deserve fear; only contempt.

    There was no choice.

    None of political parties were anti lockdown.

    I voted for the no mandatory vaccination mob

    “No-one is safe until everyone is safe.”

    And yet, here is not even the first, but at least the third scientific study I’m aware of, from September of last year already, showing that the ‘S protein’ the mRNA and viral vector WuFlu ‘vaccines’ trick your body into producing, is itself pathogenic and …drum roll please … can cause blood clots.

    But yeah, pull your sleeve up, don two, er maybe even three – can’t be safe enough, after all! – masks, and ‘be safe’ playing this Russian roulette.

    Because, as others have contended here at the Cat, if y’all behave, then maybe one day your government masters may let you travel again.
    Maybe.

    Although being paralysed and/or blind may interfere with your luxury cruise.

    As Bad Samaritan pointed out on another thread, not all Australians are morons.
    But undoubtedly the vast majority are just that; or worse.

    At the turn of the last century you didn’t need a passport to emigrate to the United States- now we’ve gone back to a global hukou system where we tax cattle have to beg our governments for permission to move. The sovereign is trying to remind the tax livestock their place. Perhaps at some point they in turn have to be reminded that the tree of liberty needs watering, as Robespierre finally found out (and justice was done).

    That Robespierre-Biden paradox again. Advocate democratic reforms, but cause as many deaths as possible, and believe it is right to do so.

    Not without an awful lot of shooting.

    Government is in extreme overreach having delegated all responsibility to a bunch of autistic scientists and doctors.

    The only people supposed to wear masks are people who have been to Perth recently. Sadly, there are fair few idiots who do.

    Cradles and Safety Nets
    Free lunch ‘safety’
    safety is not a free lunch but something you have to pay for, in one way or another.
    Where do people not recognize trade-offs? Where they are making decisions for other people. That’s where they make unrealistic demands, including demands for “safety.”
    Facts don’t matter to those for whom principles don’t matter, however loudly those principles may be proclaimed. Many so-called “thinking people” do remarkably little thinking.
    Safety issues are tailor-made for busybodies and for those who wish to expand the power of government. That is because, no matter how safe anything is, it can always be made safer — at least in isolation.
    Politically, however, nothing is more of a grand gesture than saying that “not one human life” is to be sacrificed for the sake of money. But squandering billions on safety measures that accomplish little or nothing is squandering lives that would be saved if that wealth were left alone.

    Beyond some point, “safety” crusades become dangerous.

  29. Kneel says:

    “Safety issues are tailor-made for busybodies and for those who wish to expand the power of government.”

    Indeed – evidence, if you need it, from OH&S requirement to put up sign saying “CAUTION: Opening door”. Funny, I thought a door that didn’t open was called a “wall”.
    So old fashioned, I s’pose.
    (yes, I know why and what that is supposed to mean, but really?)

  30. Leo G says:

    It is not too late for Australia to change course and finally listen to leading experts and elected representatives, by announcing support for the TRIPS waiver.

    Is it to late to ask Australian medical authorities why they choose to vaccinate older Australians with the OAZ vaccine- which is the least effective and which the Canadian government have deemed not suitable for those over 65?
    Recent efficacy comparisons indicate the primary risk (ie of failing to protect) of the AstraZeneca vax is about 8 times that of the Pfizer vax.
    Why reserve the most effective vaccination for those least at risk from adverse consequences of infection?
    Is the intent to use continuing susceptibility of older Australians as a stalking horse for the real objective?

    I always laugh when I see field bins with “Wide Load” on them. Apparently not self evident enough.

    Been enough aluminium used in those BS signs to build a couple of 737’s.

    I don’t think they know, they’re idiots, logic and commonsense have ceased to exist.

    Totally correct.
    Bread and circuses will keep the hoi-polloi in their place, eh what?!

    And as for Maximilien, he was brought down because other members of the Committee of Public Safety and the Committee of General Security (Marxist names preceding Marx himself) were afraid they would be the next passengers on those tumbrils.

    Leftist rats deserting a sinking ship, looking out for No.1. It had nothing to do with the public will.
    I looked closely at this, the rate of executions remained unchanged for more than a year following the Thermidore… settling old scores and all that.

    I think there is a much more pertinent question to ask:

    Why push these ‘vaccines’ in the first place, when we know there are numerous other available treatments, using drugs with well-tested safety profiles (ivermectin, asthma inhalants, to name just a couple)?

  35. Leo G says:

    Why push these ‘vaccines’ in the first place …

    The vaccine “push” appears to include withholding the most important information needed to make an informed decision about whether to vaccinate and with which product.
    When supplies are limited, it should make sense to make the best use of the resource, by using it to most effectively reduce the overall risk.
    Why use fear campaigns to encourage young people to vaccinate, particularly when in those age groups the death and serious injury rate from the vaccination is likely to exceed the respective rates for the worst case COVID epidemic scenarios?

  36. rich says:

    Funnelling tax cattle into smaller areas make them easier to manage and control. Freedom is dangerous to the ruling elites in case they find a treatment more effective than the vaccine that doesn’t involve “papers please.” It was never about the disease- it was always about power.
