It’s funny how things turn out, innit. We’ve got a situation here where governments are giving big business a free hand to take over the world, while telling small businesses and individuals that they’re not allowed to work at all. Seems we can agree that that’s a Bad Thing.
I’m not saying uber themselves, but we have the manpower.
I remember predicting this total bullshit:
I recall seeing something about a crazy woman who posted on twitter that she’d had her dog put down because it ‘tested positive’ for COVID. I suspect that may have been untrue, but similar things have definitely happened. IIRC such events were being (reliably) reported even way back in 2020.
Coming soon to a theocracy near you:
Forgot about this. Keeps it all rolling on and on.
No wonder there has been a rush to get tested. Plus, if you are ‘sick’ you get sick pay.
In Wales, they are giving out 750 now.
A post was merged into an existing topic: Repost of the Day (for real this time!)
Spoke to my sister last week. Did three tests in a week because she had been in contact with cases.
How many would you do if they weren’t free and you wouldn’t get paid to stay at home? None.
“I am not about pissing off the French people,” the president said in an interview with readers of Le Parisien daily on Tuesday. “But as for the non-vaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And we will continue to do this, to the end. This is the strategy.”
Tell you what, some of our so called leaders are coming across as complete psychopaths.
That they are. I just made a comment about this in the Taiwan thread. There seems to be a continued and concerted attempt to demonize “the unvaccinated”, despite the lack of any semblance of a medical reason for doing so (and the fact that it’s unethical and illegal).
I suspect a lot of politicians have simply gone nuts - as have 20, 30% of the general population. Proper Looney Tunes. I’m surprised to discover that few (no?) countries have any provisions for forcing a psychological assessment of their politicians and removing them from office if they turn out to be suffering from mental problems.
Trudeau of Canuckland said nearly the same thing in Quebec last week.
His presented his hate of the unvaccinated when he questioned whether Canada should “tolerate these people”. He basically said that “a small group of the population” was essentially “taking up space.”
Any link to a video or article? It’s been interesting watching Trudeau slide into the abyss over the last few months. His speeches have gone from woke word salad to hate-filled rants.
Very hard to find these things as YouTube and others make it difficult.
Some on the forum won’t read the link, because it’s not CNN, MSNBC, Reuters, etc.
C’est la vie.
“They don’t believe in science/progress and are very often misogynistic and racist. It’s a very small group of people, but that doesn’t shy away from the fact that they take up some space.
“This leads us, as a leader and as a country, to make a choice: Do we tolerate these people?
His comments prompted People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier to call Trudeau a “fascist psychopath.”
Everyone here on this forum MUST KNOW THIS: All people who don’t like vaccine mandates or don’t want the vaccine are racist and misogynists.
When a party described as “right wing populist” on Wikipedia calls you a fascist, you’re probably a fascist
Exactly. He even mentioned he can’t throw them in prison so……
Sounds to me like he would if he could.
Isn’t that more of a sociopath move?
Those terms are more-or-less interchangeable, but the generally-accepted distinction is that psychopaths are born, while sociopaths are made (which implies that the former have some physiological basis for their condition while the latter have … less of one). Bearing in mind that the political process allows psychopaths to bubble to the top, Trudeau could plausibly be either. FWIW I don’t think he is. I think he’s just gone nuts, because he’s a weak-willed little twerp who is enjoying the frisson of power that comes from pushing people around.
I was referring to Macron, just for the record.
Speaking of the other one though, fyi there’s a clip floating around of him saying words to the effect of we know it’s wrong, but we’re going to take away your rights anyway. That one is totally out of context – he’s actually condemning the suggestion that Muslims should be forbidden to wear the hijab because of a notorious constitutional loophole.
But the one where he says pro-choicers are “often” racist etc., that one’s totally in context.
It seems the vaccine-passport supporters are having a few technical problems with the New World Order, viz., people’s names are not standardized across countries.
The solution would seem to be entirely obvious: simply make it so that every individual on earth must adopt an alphanumeric sequence as their legal name, perhaps using a restricted subset of the Roman alphabet. Given a set of (say) 18 symbols, a string of 9 such symbols could represent 10+ billion people with ECC bits to spare, and is easily tattooed onto a citizen’s forehead at birth. Arrange into three easily-remembered groups of symbols, and we’ll all be ready to play our part in the Matrix. F1N-7EY-FM9 will be happy to accept a royalty of 1 credit for each name issued in this format.
Thank God for the covid humbug thread that’s all I say.
And I mean it !
There’s all sorts of stuff like this floating around. Despite the fact that it’s self-evidently wrong (the people turning out at protests are mostly office workers, teachers, and other completely ordinary people) it’s enormously popular to denigrate the “anti-vaxers” as knuckle-dragging crazies. I do wonder what fraction of the population takes this completely seriously, and how many look at Trudeau and Macron making fools of themselves and think “FFS, what is wrong with these people?”
