As a coles worker, I’m loving the lack of stock! Makes my job easy as we have nothing to fill. Getting paid to play with cardboard

This right here. You want to live with the virus? This is living with the virus.

The greatest lie of all time.

Labor and liberal states both seem equally effect by this?

During the toilet paper wars of 2020 there was a local little shop that had stacks of toilet paper. The window was filled as they lorded their toilet paper royalty to those of the lands. It made me realise that people freak out and go to the big stores. Flash forward now, and a local IGA was crazy stocked while the local woolies looked barren. The IGA isn’t even a small one

Let it rip, amirite? Way better than restrictions!

We just need to "push through" even harder.

Indeed. This is a very "Woman who voted for Leopards Eating Faces Party" sort of moment:

Nobody can actually propose meaningful restrictions that would slow Omicron down short of adopting what China is doing or at least a Melbourne 2020 lockdown. You either stop it initially at the border or at the first few cases, or you do not. Look at Europe, look at the Americas, look at places like Israel: the trend is consistent with gigantic Omicron spikes regardless of the restrictions.

We have restrictions and they are doing f' all. Netherlands is in lockdown, also doing f' all. Got to ride this one out

Why do you love lockdowns?

ID: hsg13yk

It sure is! I’m able to go to gym, the movies, restaurants, regional NSW, camping, bushwalking, etc. And the supply crises is overblown. Went to the shops earlier and found everything I needed for the next week. The shelves weren’t any less empty than they were whenever lockdowns were announced

Most of the disruption is due to the isolation protocols not due to the sickness itself. When will people realise this?

Vikki Savaa put it brilliantly "Morrison has a habit of allowing problems to become crises
before mishandling them".

Morrison's "Let It Rip" ideology has done more damage to the economy than lockdown ever did.

You can call yourself a church and still organise a music festival legally.

We need an Australian chapter of the Church of Satan for situations like this.

Lucky you! NSW seems to have been hit the hardest. Vic is nowhere near as bad, but will be soon enough at this rate. What state are you in?

18 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 01:13:56ID: hsfds5l

Who’d have guessed. Businesses put a lot of pressure on government to reopen. Look now. Let it rip. Stupid to lock us down any longer. I’ve had it and couldn’t care less if I get it again. It was a total non event

It's a short wave and people will be better off for it, they will have had Covid and will no longer be scared of it when another variant comes around in the future.

Having had Covid does not confer any immunity to future strains.

covid wont be covid if people are scared of it

Covid isn’t, the government is. Someday you guys might figure it out, at least I hope you do

Covid isn’t

Okay, what is it that you think all these truck drivers, distro, & supermarket workers are sick with?

Oh look, it's a 6 day old anti-vaxxer account. How many times have you been banned from this sub, mate?


And why are you commenting in an Australian sub? Have you been banned from all the American / International Covid subs?

25 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 00:57:49ID: hsfbssf

How does that work? Did the produce get the rona and have to be thrown put?

Did all the workers die?

It doesn't make sense, they had me slinging whoppers all good for corona but can't stack shelves.

What did we run out petrol for the trucks?Did we lose all the mechanics to maintain the vehicles?

It doesnt make sense. They can ship a whole nation worth of vaccines at -40c but dont have can beans?

Nah, nah. I aint no fool.
