How fucken cut would this be sista be now, with 7 more days of lockdown?! 🤭

De udder day, Dickie-Dave divulged the directions to dis diva’s digital dummy-spit:

Https://www.instagram.com/p/CRVbLyxnLQ1

lady was absolutely white hot with teh angry rage. (Took her about 5 mins to get over the initial mask of civility, so feel free to skip the first 5 if you’re just here for the lulz).

this was all before Dickie-Dan announced 7 more days of lockdowns, so the sista must be absolutely apoplectic by now.

I hope she posts a follow up video. Because she did make some interesting points, was entertaining and was surprisingly well spoken for a Mexican.

It also seems that her point of view aligns with some of the locals here. So what do you think?

Is the lady largely right? Or is she overly emotional and happy to play the victim now, while looking down her nose at other EZFKA units from her high tower in the good times?

she is playing the victim, and serves no lofty universal ideal; she is simply another crab at the bottom the ezfka crab bucket, bemoaning her position. had she clawed and scraped past the other crabs to the top of the bucket, she would be wearing a mask in the video, demeaning and degrading the crabs at the bottom of the bucket for being responsible for the situation they were in.

Anybody who refers to herself as a “creative” deserves everything she gets. That sort of language is intolerable.

I recently found myself copping heat on the interwebs from a thousand femmo’s and sjw types. Apparently sex workers are providing a service like getting your haircut or a plumber fixing something? When I pointed out that my hairdresser doesn’t suck my dick and therefore it’s not the same I was on the receiving end of a thousand screaming banshees, calling me ‘whorephobic’ and toxic masculine lol What a time to be alive!

Seems nowadays someone labels themself as something and therefore they are. No longer do you have to study/work hard to refine the craft. Just go on instagram and call yourself “creative” “professional” etc and therefore you are. We are seeing it now in our professional workplace, young 22 year olds turn up, point and say I want what they’ve got, mind you there’s 25 years study and experience behind the veteran. Don’t you dare tell them no or they’ll squeal bullying so hard, until they get given whatever they want to placate them…

They might both equally have a mouthful of meat while earning their paycheque. But the power relationship is different.

Not really, the $80 job will be a relationship with joe average, the $10,000 will be with bill gates, scummo or john barilaro.
The situation may not be quite as bad but the power dynamic is similar.

thats actually 5000x as xtreme, 10,000 bux to gates is tiny compared 2 $100 for joe av

bjw678

True, but that applies across society.
It is not particular to that industry.
It is merely the employee/employer dynamic for any “skill”

bjw678

There are people working for uber eats, who are desperate,
and people that have a career as a renowned chef.

I’m not really sure what point it makes though. except communism, or welfare.

‘The amazing high class sex worker that you (and a bunch of others) are just begging to fuck and can pick and choose her clients and charge $10,000.’

Nah Peachy is definitely female. No bloke would make a statement like that lol.

Here is how it works. So a top of the range yatchy in her early 20’s goes for 20k/month, and the contracts are generally 1 or 2 years. People upgrade after a year or two. You’d hire from a modelling agency in one of the fancier med ports generally.

But the market is at equilibrium, so its not like the pick/choose thing happens that much. If you are getting paid, its always a job.

The super high end one you hear about are either (a) beards for high profile people, (b) deeply involved in the money laundering or criminal gangs (daughter, wife, gf of high end crim), or (c) procurers of human trafficking assets.

If your job is to go out and convince other young girls in some village that they could be a fancy model in the big city, when you know they will basically just be trafficked into sex slavery… well, wouldn’t you want to be paid?

Sucking dick just isn’t respected.

Men enjoy it but don’t respect the people doing it I mean how could someone? It’s a hard dick for crying out loud. Starts to smell on a hot day, pee and sperm comes out of it.

It’s why gays get so defensive, are so militant and in your face in defending and promoting their culture at every opportunity because at the end of the day the entire pride culture is built on protecting the right of gays to suck and take cock without ridicule or discrimination.

Most cultures were built on the food, on freedom, etc. Gay culture exists because some guy wants to suck and take dick.

It’s a weak foundation if they don’t constantly promote and protect their right to suck dick at every opportunity the whole house of cards will fall.

Whorephobic? Seriously? You’re not making that up? 😳

Your point about self entitled young cunce is also well taken. We recently interviewed for a junior project manager and were doing well with one dude until he said he wanted $150K base salary plus perks. This guy was 27 with about 5 years experience. And there was a cyber security guy a couple of years ago with 18 months experience after uni who wanted $140K. We told them both to run along.

bjw678

I had a guy interviewing me bitch because he couldn’t get anyone with any experience to interview for him and then was surprised when I wouldn’t work for him for 90k a year.
I think the 2 may have been related…

LSWCHP

Bitch? Do you normally address people as “bitch”? That’s not going to win friends or influence people, you know.

bjw678

bitch: verb (colloq) complain

Do you really get the impression I’m interested in doing those though?

DictatorDavid

I shit you not. Had never heard it before and funny because I may be a lot of things but “whorephobic” isn’t one. In fact I often tell my single mates who are trying to date nowadays they are better off paying. Cheaper in the long run, less drama, less chance of getting stitched up etc.

I just think there’s something bigger going on by normalising sex work. In this case it was actually Only Fans being talked about and deemed as sex work. The women were very quick to shoot me down and protect the guys paying for said ‘service’. I pointed out that these guys paying were beta’s that never stand a chance. It looks like this new economy wants young men to be sexless and pay for the privilege to look at/talk to these women.

Then there was the whole using the term WHOREphobic which seems degrading in itself and was lost on me? Must be ok for them to use it lol

https://7news.com.au/sunrise/on-the-show/ama-president-says-sydney-could-be-locked-down-indefinitely-as-outbreak-continues-c-3451356

Dr Omar Khorshid has warned that Sydney could be shut down ‘indefinitely’ if covid cases don’t start to dip.
The top doctor told sunrise  that the lockdown of Australia’s most populous city “certainly hasn’t worked yet” and that residents could be forced to live with restrictions until they are fully-vaccinated.

Coming

this blokes brain is a completely logic free zone

“fully vaccinated”

what does that even mean you fucking flog

bjw678

At least he’s starting to talk about the long term truth, which is more than any of the governments will.
All the government saÿs is “we need t lock down for another week” every week for 20 weeks.
They’ll just keep saying this year after year and never acknowledge that they intend to continue forever, and have no other plan.

Coming

The plan is to vaccinate everyone

for what reasons I don’t know , never really been explained or even thought about

but once that’s achieved im sure the goalposts will be moved again because this has never at any point made any sense

bjw678

“plan” is generous.
They simply can’t think of anything else to do.
Because there really isn’t, other than let it rip, or lockdown.
And let it rip is REALLY unpopular.

The90kwbeast

You seriously don’t understand why the vaccination program is in place?

We all need to watch carefully how the UK and Netherlands goes the next few months. If they shut down again, the world as we know it is basically fucked.

Coming

no you obtuse cunt

I don’t understand why ending lockdown is predicated on 100% of people being vaccinated since it makes absolutely zero sense

bjw678

It isn’t. He just doesn’t articulate very clearly. It is based on no cases, and will never happen if the vax isn;t 100% effective.

The90kwbeast

Well that statement makes more sense than your first. I agree anything over probably 80 or something% is just wishful thinking.

And I agree if there isn’t a shift in risk acceptance in Q4 this year 2022 will just be another year of lockdowns. Scomo tried to start that narrative already and the latest outbreak has forced him to pause it, because his vaccine program is shit.

I found the Netherlands article already, they still have some social distancing, no clubs etc but it’s fairly tame.

Again the measure will be if they give up and lockdown again, we’re (Australia) will be fucked into another year or more of lockdowns.

110 cases and 43 in the community again… This lockdown isn’t even working.

bjw678

110 cases and 43 in the community again… This lockdown isn’t even working.

This is unintentionally insightful.
This level of restriction is the baseline requirement to keep it at bay, along with harsher restrictions when it gets out of hand. The vax doesn’t seem to be changing that.
Time won’t change that either.
The government is realising this as well, hence the harsher lockdowns as time goes on, priming us to accept restrictions on an ongoing basis to “keep us safe”

Ramjet

I agree with you about risk acceptance and lockdowns. However, post election risk will be thrust upon us with borders opened but not really opened. Doesn’t matter who wins the lodge, each has their favoured group of migrants which will be stealthily put through half hearted quarantine.

Gladys said 80%

Interesting because no developed country in the world has been at that point regardless of vaccines

Can we get an answer ?

what is the % based on?
what rationale ?

even lvo doesn’t understand it , though the handicaps in the comments are all cheering

https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2021/07/delta-strain-may-require-90-vaccination-rates/

“require” 90% in order to achieve what ?

The90kwbeast

You’re asking the wrong person really.

I would have personally thought 40-50% should cover everyone over 60, or with other medical conditions putting them at risk. I.e. the most likely to wind up in hospital. Plus enough of everyone else to again minimize hospitalisations.

Various government bodies and medical groups are coming up with their own % based on different modelling, different risk thresholds and so on, so I guess there’s no ‘right’ answer. I would have thought more than 90% is never going to happen, so it’s now about some arbitrary number below that which gives the most benefit managing covid whilst not continually placing the world into never ending lockdowns getting there.

Re: no developed country’s hospital system being overwhelmed, every country that could afford to locked down at least once to manage the virus the past 18 months.

IT’s about enough vax to make it go away completely.
NSW was talking about living with covid
until a few cases showed up then lockdown,lockdown,lockdown.
It won’t matter what %vax is if cases go up it will be lockdown.

Coming

So what you’re saying is vaccinate the vulnerable – the percentage is an incidental number to that ?

that would be a far more reasonable and meaningful criterion

the thing is that vulnerable people have already had ample opportunity to get the vaccine – there was no rollout failure

they either didn’t want it, or were waiting for Pfizer – which isn’t anybody else’s problem

Media should come with a warning that it is not always factually correct and analysis pieces are often opinions of the writers and may need to be independently verified. Plus another warning in bold that media is potentially dangerous to your mental health.

They keep saying they don’t want hospitals, doctors, nurses overwhelmed but don’t hospitals, doctors, nurses exist to deal with public health emergencies.

That’s what they signed up for and are paid for.

Pity that the streisand effect is kicking in, so even this is beginning to backfire.

DictatorDavid

Since covid I’d say they aren’t being taken away slowly anymore. People seem to be living this mantra “If I just do what the government says then things will get back to normal soon!” The thing is it’s been 18 months and things aren’t going back to normal. People just keep giving up! 5 lockdowns in Vic, this one was meant to be 5 days and now it’s extended an unknown period. What’s the bet there’s a 6th lockdown before years end?

I was debating with a friend recently who is pro-vaccine, pro-mask. Basically they were saying they could see masks being mandated for good because of all the benefits they have brought on and how workplaces could force us to wear masks permanently. I was just sitting there thinking, “Fuck me 18 months ago people thought I was crazy talking about this virus that was on the loose in China and how we would have lockdowns.” Now I’m arguing against all these draconian measures and people have forgotten what things were like before covid was even a thing. We’re not getting our freedoms back…

ThePensum

Agreed. some of us had this hunch that this thing – the policy response, the lockdowns, the closed borders – would go for a lot longer than the “temporary” measures, that were supposed to be for a few weeks, months at most. well ‘quelle surprise’ as they say on nakedcapitalism, here we are 18 months.
first it was the hammer and dance to take the heat off hospitals.
then it was to wait out for when the vaccines arrived. and even now that is not good enough (for the UK, where they are 60-70% vaccinated, all these commentators saying “we need to go back into lockdown”).
what next.
Now I read Singapore is backing down on their promise a few weeks back to look at “deaths and severe illness” rather than case numbers… why?

The90kwbeast

The moment we have mostly vaccinated populations still being asked to go into lockdown is the moment I think shit may start to get real. It’s an increasingly tough ask of any government and the benefits of any lockdown would have to be negative.

Gouda

Currently looking after a patient in hospital who fits your classic left leaning, social justice type (and to be fair actually “walks the walk” and has done a lot for disadvantaged people due to their profession and advocacy work). They are definitely be pro vaccination and pro mask – but even they are sick of all these lockdowns, so you know that the tolerance level is starting to max out.

Singapore does the population ponzi like us, they just have a different target market. Covid free is a marketing item they are keen to exploit to get wealthy migrants.

Liam thinks it’s irrational that people don’t want to get the jab since the risk is so low

but Liam is under 50 and is getting the jab despite the fact that his risk from infection (should he even contract the virus) is just as low

he claims the numbers are 0.00009% vs 0.004%
I disagree but let’s progress on this basis

he is getting this injection , and we are locking down the country, for 0.00391% absolute risk reduction

In other words, we are enduring this clown show to reduce the number of deaths by 3.91 per 100,000

in other words wasting trillions of dollars and months of every single persons life on earth to prevent 3.91 deaths per 100,000

and that is based on the assumption that the vaccine is 100% effective in preventing death (which it isn’t) , and that everyone will inevitable contract the virus (which they won’t) , and that all the mortality numbers are correct (which they aren’t)

What exactly is the intention of these straw man questions ?

In any case, me being vaccinated DOES NOT substantially affect their risk of dying from the virus

this is another way in which the response to covid is not “temporary”.

someone will have to pay for this. the debt overhang will be around for years. it will have to be paid off somehow, one day; either reduced fiscal benefits, higher taxes, or, likely, higher inflation to inflate away the debt. lets not even get started on the cost to our young already through disruption to education (no… zoom classes don’t work).

as I say… someone will have to pay for this. even if you believe in free money printing and MMT, someone pays. and here’s a hint who pays: not the ones in power or the ones with the assets, the gerry harveys.

Chinese Astroturfer

UK with 96 COVID deaths yesterday it’s really ramping up. Lockdowns and restrictions will be coming back at least when the weather gets cooler because they won’t have the stomach for hundreds of COVID deaths everyday in winter. They’ll probably get similar numbers to last year around the new year without restrictions. The UK population is disgustingly fat and unhealthy though their old people are so fat and bloated. Big fish and chip guts on them.

Someone below said we’re fucked and life is over, but it’s just the hand we’ve been dealt, lifespans shortened, now we get on with it. It’s bad for old people but they aren’t supposed to live until 80 or 90. It’s only become common in recent years. Lockdowns are an example of sunk cost fallacy at this point.

I think it will eventually burn out to a degree like H1N1 once everyone susceptible to the virus has been offed, but this might take quite a few years to achieve.

I don’t think any young healthy person has much to worry about, but might want to start planning to do most of their living before they turn 50 or 60, cold climates will become undesirable, outdoor dining, outdoor pubs, outdoor events will do well. Pop up hospitality venues will succeed, no-one is going to open a new pub or restaurant in coming years unless they have rocks in their head. You wouldn’t open a small business in this environment obviously a lot of businesses will just give this year when reality hits home.

I think in cold climates summers will be this mania every year where everyone is let outside, everyone counts down to the annual freedom day, then restrictions come back again in September or October.

Absolutely. People have had 18 months now to change their diets, introduce exercise into their life.

Gouda

Agree. Unfortunately there’s no money in preventative health. We’d be a lot healthier a population if there were campaigns about not smoking/drinking/eating excessively, but bureaucrats controlling the health spend have a hard time measuring those kind of outcomes.

Australia used to have great public health campaigns when I was a kid (eg. “Life Be In It”) but over time there’s been a lack of public spaces, more fears about predators and a heap of extra barriers. My father used to run a community sporting group on Friday nights. The participants fees would pay for the equipment and gymnasium hire, but to do so nowadays you’d have to get public liability insurance, working with children checks which would put a lot of people off before it could even get started.

stagmal

smoking for the most part seems to have been reduced almost to the point where it can barely be reduced anymore, and smokers pay for themselves probably multiple times over anyway. it’s the obese that have been free-riding the system and refuse to change.

Coming

Smokers pay for themselves even without accounting for the tax on cigarettes

they die younger , so the savings on pensions and other costs exceed any additional health costs

(basically they die of cancer shortly after retiring, which is ideal behaviour for EZFKA units)

same could be true for fat cunts who knows

letting Covid rip would definitely be a huge demographic boon to the nation, decreasing our dependency ratios

Less money for preventative health and public parks and more money for elite sports.
If you take the kids to a public park, it is crowded. No money for more parks, but we have $250 million to refurbish Marvel stadium.

Dubbo is a town of 50,000 in the middle of nowhere I’d hope they’re not full

Haven’t been personally however if it’s like Orange and Bathurst heaps of well put together green spaces

If NSW wasn’t completely fixated on Sydney and surrounds due to EZKFA overlord rent extraction purposes, we’d have a better decentralisation policy. QLD has done reasonably well over time inadvertently on this.

By rights, Dubbo or Orange should be more like a Tooowoomba but they ain’t.

kind of mind blowing for me.

what else is out there

LSWCHP

That’s because the whole influenza deaths and vaccine thing is a scam to make money for big pharma.

Hardly anybody catches actual influenza, and of those who do hardly anybody dies.

They waffle about 2000 influenza deaths per year in EZFKA, but it’s bullshit. How many people do you know who have had influenza, let alone died from it? Zero and zero to both in my case.

Statistically, as per your numbers one would have to trawl 20000 people (actually about 15000) to have average chance to “know” somebody one person that died of influenza. Of course, in real life that can be anything between never knowing one in the whole sorry life or knowing sheetloads of them…
Like any other case, anecdotal evidence is proof of only own experience, not facts.

BTW, influenza deaths in Aus is on average 67.5 per million or about 1650/pa (assumption of 24 mil plebs).

Err, I’ve had influenza from that 2017 strain that went around. Was bed ridden for 5 days, worst thing I’ve been through.

Not everything is a conspiracy theory bloke

And guess what, from reports covid wouldn’t be much different, yet we have to shut down for that?

LSWCHP

I’m not saying it’s non-existent. I am saying that the fatality rates for influenza are vastly overstated.

waiting for the parody article about Brisbane getting the Olympics… because ffs no one else wants that shitshow anymore 😀

stagmal

that was my immediate thought too, if brisbane got the olympics then the competition must have been non-existent. the days of the olympics being this ultra huge world stopping event are clearly no more, it’s sad really

stagmal

yes maam

and no one wants it

The90kwbeast

Disagree on everything you just said

Would be a great result if SEQ gets the Olympics, the might finally reno QE2 stadium, which is undoubtedly the worst stadium in the country.

bjw678

Come to NSW then, we reno perfectly good stadiums just so mates can make some money.

No one is interested in the olympcs the same as no one is interested in sport in general, and music and other traditional entertainment forms, There is just a lot more options now.

bjw678

But who cares about perth and wa?

bjw678

I didn’t mean it peachy…

The90kwbeast

I’m in Sydney lived in Brisbane for 5 years tho

bjw678

So presumably you see the white elephants STILL in sydney 20 years later.
Some of it is useful, but you don’t need the olympics to build stuff.

I thought they were going to reuse the stadiums used for the Commonwealth games. The issue with the IOC is that they will demand better stadiums.

The90kwbeast

Sounds like the Gabba gets a massive Reno which is probably due anyway, QE2 will be left to rot

I believe financially it has always been a negative for cities hosting the Olympics.

The90kwbeast

The Lord mayor is basically on record today saying it will pull infrastructure investment forward a decade.

I reckon this is a council and state push to get more funding from the Federal government to catch SEQ infrastructure up to Sydney and Melbourne levels which would otherwise never happen.

Any cost benefit analysis can be made to be positive I guess pending your time horizon and positive externalities included.

I’m all for investing in much needed infrastructure.

But does Brisbane really want to become the next Sydney or Melbourne?

I’ve been to Brisbane a few times and thought it a nice city, if only it had half the population.

Once the extra infrastructure is there it will be used to continue piling on with the population ponzi to pay back the incurred debts:

“The economic impact of hosting the Olympics tends to be less positive than anticipated. Because most cities have ended up falling massively in debt after hosting the games, cities without the necessary infrastructure may be better off not submitting bids.”

This is true. I think it is no secret the Lord Mayor of Brisbane and successive QLD governments want to launch Brisbane as a really viable alternative to Sydney or Melbourne, starting with the New world city branding 12 years ago.

That means copying what Sydney and Melbourne have done via population ponzi and never ending apartment and infrastructure building. Boom times ahead!

Brissie to the moon! 🚀 🌙

Brisbane beat out Qatar and a long shot joint bid between North and South Korea.
Also IOC knows the jig is up… they awarded the games 12 years out to sew it up. in the past I think it was 6 or 8 years out.

Ramjet

Is the whole process still corrupted? FIFA took it to the next level of corruption but I recall the IOC president keeping the inducements bribes for himself.

This ‘thing’ is allowed to compete against women in weightlifting at Tokyo Olympics:

How was this ever approved?

Why are we even having this discussion?

That creature is a blot on humanity. The idiots who facilitate its nonsense aren’t much better.

It’s just amazing reading the embee comments

https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2021/07/uk-the-litmus-test-for-ending-lockdowns/

the site owners have selected by design or by accident the most fearful and pathetic cunts I have ever seen

like I have never met anyone in real life even close to this level, but here are dozens of them accumulated in one website
all of whom are furiously wanking each other off about scomo, Gladys and the forthcoming Covid apocalypse

there’s just a handful of relatively normal people still clinging on there

all a bit simple minded so can’t really debate with the lunatics that have gathered there , but know from their folksy common sense that what the other guys are saying isn’t quite right (like boom engineering)

and of course LVO who seems to be relatively sensible about Covid – seems to me that DLS has been barred from writing on the topic . For his own good probably, because he was a frothing lunatic

Was? DLS is a lunatic.

stagmal

ya 100% sure i have delta covid now lmao

Sacha

It has been scientifically proven that the Delta variant is so contagious that even just reading about it will get you infected.

Sacha

Good discussion on Covid here.

I don’t follow it much so all the data and different opinions greatly appreciated.
