Covid and the Economy


Recommended Posts

Haha, yes precisely;

"Politicians who are responsible for creating this disastrous #COVID19 #Lockdown folly are: cowardly corrupt incompetent narcissists The damage they've already done and continue to do - will be permanent. Worst part is half public think its a paid holiday. #StockholmSyndrome"

Still can't quite work out why we are deliberately destroying the economies of every first world nation because of this flu virus. Yesterday I went shopping at the local mega supermarket where the she

"Let's be brutally honest. There have been 226,000 UK cases of Corona in 65,000,000 people. That's a case rate of 0.4% (1 person in 250). And 33,000 have died (0.05%, 1 person in 2,000) And over 99% of us have our lives on indefinite hold. Comments?"

More brutal honesty;

"Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says almost 40% of households earning less than $40,000/year lost their jobs in the month of March."

Would they have got healthcare even if they needed it?  You need TONS of money to get drugs and stuff in the USA 😢

America has plenty of money and power to implement a UBI and healthcare for all.

mate, politicians are completely trashing the economy for years to come before your very eyes. When you're dumpster diving for food scraps healthcare will be the very last thing on your mind.

People seem to be talking themselves into a depression.  Forgetting that  far more people recover than die :(

the lockdown isn't just talk, the law is preventing you from doing anything but to just sit watch it all burn.

And yet there is quite a lot of activity still going on, especially for delivery drivers and other 'essential' jobs (i.e. the foundational working class that the country cannot go on without) 🧐

Nonsense, Californians are all over the beaches at the weekends.

If they think California is 'Communist' it just shows how far to the right America is.

Mind you, Americans are not especially noted for their subtlety of thought and sophistication :P

err,

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tries to clear up confusion about whether the stay-at-home order will be extended for three months. He says as long as COVID-19 exists, the stay-at-home order will remain, but with some flexibility for businesses to open.

Big anti-lockdown protests throughout Germany, 5000 in Stuttgart alone.

One rule for you and another for them, after the Ferguson fiasco was the Scottish health adviser caught attending a picnic and here the NZ health minister caught at the beach.

And in the US politicians and reporters at a press conference immediately abandon their face masks as soon as they think the cameras have stopped rolling.

It's like we're all being treated like children but the scary thing is that 50% of the population seem to want it.

Two communiques here purportedly from the police but I'm assured one is genuine and one is fake, the problem is I can't tell which is which.

New Lord Sumption interview today with the BBC absolutely gets it right. There is no excuse to continue the lockdown except for politicians to save face having done everything to put the fear of god into everyone in the first place. There is no danger of the NHS being overwhelmed. Businesses are being destroyed, peoples health and futures are being destroyed. Individuals should have the right to choose the amount of risk they take. Of all the pandemics documented over the last hundred years this one is the least severe of the lot.

It should be apparent to all that this lockdown has turned into total farce and the rules being made for social distancing to allow limited resumption of daily activities are just ridiculous.

Here a US tennis club official can barely keep a straight face as she reads out the new rules that will allow the club to re-open to the public.

That's all window-dressing.

Don't worry, the cops are as bent and racist as ever :D

    • Some people seem surprised that YouGov polls show half the country are happy living under the covid restrictions and don't want a return to the 'old normal'. Politicians  have 10 times the power and now work a simple top down Chinese Communist Party style politics, no debates, no need to deal with pesky voters. No wonder none of the political parties are pushing for a return the old normal. The NHS have a 10th of the caseload but still receiving £240 billion a year so full pay and plenty of time for making those fabulous tic-tok vids. Of course there's a waiting list, it's a pandemic sheesh. GP telephone assessments, that's if the pt can get past the receptionist which is unlikely, phone 111 or 999. Go back to the old normal? ha - not likely. Education, everyone on full pay but just 2 hours of zoom lecturing a day, no exams and no face to face with the little darlings. Back to the old normal - forget it. CEO's and big corp find the new normal so much simpler, no face to face, customers pick out shiny pictures on web pages and pay upfront. When the thing arrives and is nothing like what's expected too much hassle and expense to send back. Brilliant - go back to the old normal - no way. Well there's half the country right there.
    • So we have 'outbreaks of covid' where no one actually gets sick. We have vaccines 'proven to work' but no actual working out, the vaccine companies still haven't provided complete data sets (still in trials). How would you know anyway when the survival rate was already 99.7% before the vaccines - it becomes 99.8%? Now govt makes law that all workers in care homes must have the experimental jab, and visiting relatives won't? Doubt it. And which profession comes next? Nurses?   Meanwhile how's lockdown going for you? As I said on Friday, you should have gone to Ascot. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1406550082007224320/pu/vid/592x1280/mi3o2t3MsZxA5GvK.mp4?tag=12
