The rate that stops the nation… for real this time!

The proper way to atone for prior missteps is not to whine and make regretful noises, but to make sure to get it correct the next time!

So here we are on another Tuesday, gearing up to watch the rate that stops the nation. …or at least the economic zone.

Let’s have at it

25bips…jes coz

Freddy

Yes 25bps. CBs are making their next big mistake with smaller rate rises. Markets are partying again and we will end up with an even higher terminal rate.

DictatorDavid

Anything other than 50bps will be a fucking mockery

Gouda

Should really be 75-100bps, but we know that’s never going to happen.

Gouda

25bps just announced, so mockery it is.

Do you think that every time RBA hikes 25bps and Fed hikes 75 that there is anyone feeling of anxiety or guilt in the RBA. Like the day after you sleep with something you really shouldn’t have?

Reus's Large MEMBER

Being that they have long experience with rooting the populace without lube, I am very sure that there is zero regret from them

DictatorDavid

Considering the Fed is using language about having to keep hiking hard to avoid an even “more severe recession”. It makes you wonder how fucked we might be here. Australia seems to be stuck with this economic exceptionalism and are still talking about a soft landing. Will we be so lucky this time?

Reus's Large MEMBER

Short answer is no, but they will print like mofo’s in order to try to save it.

bjw678

 is using language about having to keep hiking hard to avoid an even “more severe recession”. 

Whatever they are saying they are hiking hard to cause a recession. That is how inflation will be driven down.

Reus's Large MEMBER

If you were to destroy the financial system and the economy would you have done anything different to what they did so far?

bjw678

Sure,
crank interest rates to 20%+ 30 years ago and leave them there.

Stewie

We must destroy the village to save the village

The RBA can’t respond or follow the Fed higher – the only release valve left in the system is the AUD…. if the Fed keeps hiking, and hiking for a while, do not be surprised to see the AUD fall to the mid 40c.

bjw678

It’s a rock and a hard place though.
Higher rates and a low AUD will both fuck the place, just in different ways.

On the other hand, a crashing AUD is far less appealing to the predatory migrant that is simply scouring the global for the best economy to affix themselves too.

Yeah offshore buyers might find our housing more attractive, but just how many nations currencies are going to be falling slower than the AUD. The US is strangling them all. The UK has similar lending term structures as Australia, hence they’re going to be in a similar position as ourselves – no real benefit to the expats living there.

Stewie

True but of the two I would prefer a lower AUD – it puts less of a crimp on inelastic consumer spending, in terms of food, rent and local services. We all still have to eat and catch trains, etc. Cost of goods may sky rocket, but they’re gunna do that anyways. But yeah, compared to the Fed they have far fewer options open to them.

bjw678

True but of the two I would prefer a lower AUD – it puts less of a crimp on inelastic consumer spending, in terms of food, rent and local services.

I think a low AUD will impact those more than you are thinking, and local “services” are likely to be the first things jettisoned in hard times given they are mostly luxuries.

bjw678

Energy prices, quite a bit of food is imported(especially the cheaper options), along with packaging for locally produced.
Any and all consumer goods given we make nothing any more, so kitchen appliances, clothes, tv’s, baby products, furniture and on and on.
New car prices will push up so used car prices will also push up higher again on further increased demand.
Even something as basic as steel is heavily imported now.

The90kwbeast

Are you kidding? We make nothing here anymore, practically. And anything we do make that is exported, locals pay export prices anyway which will be jacked up “because inflation”

Ergo EVERYTHING is impacted.

emusplatt

+umpteen to this..”locals pay export prices…”

Stewie

I’d agree that our lack of domestic manufacturing would hurt us more relatively than other countries, that will also be in the same boat as us.

bjw678

very little of that stuff is imported, 

Quite a lot of it is, especially the cheaper options. That will be the killer. If you think food is not imported you haven’t spent much time looking at labelling in the supermarket.
As always the relatively wealthy won;t have it bad, the poor will just get shafted.

bjw678

Quite a bit of meat is imported from https://scottsdalepork.com.au/blog/where-is-your-pork-coming-from

However, it may surprise you to find that the majority of ham and bacon sold in Australia – around 75% – is made from imported pork!

Fresh fruit and veg cost quite a bit more than the imported canned stuff, and given how much ostensibly fresh is frozen it wouldn’t surprise me if quite a bit is imported as well.
How much people are effected depends on income as always, as your reference to restaurants show. The people who are going to be impacted are not regularly going to restaurants.

The effects are at the margins, but the margins are what matter. People who are barely able to afford their mortgage aren’t eating a diet of predominantly fresh fruit and meat. They are eating cheaply and if the cheap stuff goes up they may no longer be able to afford that mortgage.

bjw678

I agree that the margins matter, but I think you’re overestimating the impact on things like food.

And I think you are underestimating, especially for the lower income brackets.

m trying to explain how the supermarket and green grocer food is local, not just the restaurant food.

The higher cost nice supermarket and green grocer food. The cheaper stuff is almost always imported.

Also from the maker pushing it’s australianness

Scottsdale Pork ham and Bacon doesn’t have a completely full bar chart (see below) – you’ll be unlikely to find any that does. This is because the brines and salts used in the curing and smoking processes are not produced in Australia.

How hard can it be to make brine and salts…

Also the label made in australia doesn’t actually mean very much.

CoOL (Country of Origin) Labelling – that’s the green and gold kangaroo logo you can find on products made in Australia – can be very confusing.

This only shows that the product was made in Australia, not necessarily made using Australian grown pork. The product can be made from imported pork and still use this image on it’s label.

And of course we have the argument that basic foods are already inflating heavily. MY shopping bill has increased massively in the last year. What do you think the cause is if it’s all local peachy? Wages?

I also can’t help but note that the AUD has fallen significantly in the last year and grocery bills have climbed significantly in the same timeframe.

emusplatt

uh huh, and quite a bit….transport and whatnot getting it in the neck with diesel cost

The90kwbeast

Lower AUD increases fuel costs which drive machinery to harvest, transport and distribute food.

Some food is imported.

Alcohol – will go up indirectly because wages will go up, because everything else goes up. But yes not directly AUD impacted

Transport – you’re forgetting fuel and power costs respectively. We have more and more imported parts and machinery.

Utilities – are you living under a rock? Everything is privatised and we’re obviously paying export prices for everything we do produce.

In summation I’m not sure how you went from “inflation is the devil” to “a lower AUD won’t drive much inflation”

It will absolutely drive inflation just like 10 years ago the high dollar reduced inflation via cheap imports

emusplatt

and a quiet query from me…how is ezfka growing this affordable food with fertiliser prices where they are? …and prices will be rising further I fear.

How is ezfka going to maintain its machinery fleet?
imported spares are usurious now and getting worse.

New machinery is becoming out of the question.

$7/kg for seconds carrots?

570/t wheat?

Freddy

I can’t see RBA letting AUD go that low. The same way we lost manufacturing due to higher AUD, a low AUD will also kill off many companies. Inflation on imports, debt denominated in USD, etc.

I am cheering on much higher US interest rates and RBA forced to defend AUD. That is worst case scenario for Aus propadee.

Freddy

5% then back down to 2% all within 24 months

Something drastic would need to happen. Bond markets are over 4% all the way out.
United States Government Bonds – Yields Curve (worldgovernmentbonds.com)

Australia not far behind at the long end implying rates will converge.
Bonds – prices (asx.com.au)

I do believe that capitalism needs a solid positive interest rate in order to function

Agreed. I would add higher taxes. Or rather, taxes better spent. Scrap superannuation. The 10% employer contribution plus all the money saved on super tax concessions for the rich are more than enough to fund a decent retirement and healthcare for all retirees. Of course Labor will share that pool of money with immigrant parents ffs.

Aussie Soy Boy

A Honda Civic is already a $50k car it’ll be $65k if we have a dollar in the 40s.

Stewie

It may not, it all depends on how much of the village the US wants to burn down in order to save the village. I would put the chances higher than most people think, especially if they strangle it enough to cause a commodity collapse.

Nice to know that even in a biased survey where a tiny portion of unvaccinated population make up 37% of respondents, that the majority of people who got vaccinated would do it again.

this is kind of the same phenomenon as people who put ukrainian flags and 3 syringes in their twitter bio

Its a way for people to feel very special, when in fact they are ordinary

“im an exceptionally rare unvaccinated person who is far superior to these other people”

The reality is the vaccine made almost zero difference to anybody in either direction

MR coal

except all the people that died from it.

Coming

and for the 99.99% of people who didn’t die from either covid or the jab?

bjw678

I guess they are in the same boat as the 99.99% of people who didn’t get birth defects from thalidomide…

Coming

I don’t usually reply to you for obvious reasons

but thought this might be instructive for the general ezfka’er

Almost every mother who used thalidomide got birth defects in their child
Even after one single tablet

Which is why it is not even remotely comparable you absolute imbecile

bjw678

who’s areshole did you pull 99.99% out of?
Excess deaths are much higher than that in the UK health data, and only in those who have been vaccinated.
Strangely the covid caused myocarditis you keep going on about seems to only be effecting those who have been vaxxed.

Freddy

You should do some similar analysis on RSA. Explain where all these excess deaths came from pre-vaccine.

IF you can find the raw data somewhere then I might have a look. My can be fucked factor to actually look for it is non existent though.

bjw678

Don’t want to talk about anything other than thalidomide? OK.
What percentage of the whole population was effected by thalidomide?
How many people were forced or pressured into taking thalidomide?
When the dust settles on this it will be far more significant than thalidomide was.

The US VAERS system shows around 15000 hospitalisations for vaccine induced myocarditis/pericarditis, with about 1500 severe injuries and several hundred deaths.

Given that VAERS is widely acknowledged as significantly under-reporting reality, that doesn’t seem like zero difference to me.

The Journal of the American Heart Association, which I believe to be credible, has also just published two articles about treating vaccine induced myocarditis. I don’t think they’d be doing this if the problem was trivial.

People will be notified and asked to reduce their power usage if their suburb is at risk of a blackout.

The purpose of the UN deal was supposedly to get the grain flowing again. Unknown how much was used to deliver weapons. The deal was bad for Russia since a lot of their own grain got stuck in European ports instead of going to where it was supposed to go.

In any case it wasn’t meant to be used to stage attacks on each other but hey if Ukraine wants to do that, Russia will reneg.

Just another example of Ukrainian and Western duplicity.

So much of health care is a money making scam, including the covid hysteria. Here is a recent journal article that looked at the efficacy of healthcare interventions that have been reviewed by the Cochrane collaboration. The short answer is only a measly 6% of healthcare interventions have reliable data showing they benefit the patient. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0895435622001007?via%3Dihub

Jam

I once did a research paper on evidence based health care and factors of the built environment improving health outcomes based on reduction of meds and length of stay. Daylight and greenery are the two items supported by evidence along with positive distractions such as artwork and music.

Yet the healthcomplex demands these huge follies when we’d be better off attending to patients in caravans in a field.

bjw678

When you make healthcare a for profit activity all the incentives are to make more money, not to make people healthy.
Remember this anytime you want a privatised health system.
It worked so well with the power grid…

Nice post!

Robert Plant

‘Why the RBA will NOT hike rates before 2024…
It won’t be in any rush to lift rates on that basis alone. But it also has macroprudential tools for house prices to work with these days so when the time does come those will be used first. And, given how central house prices will be to the recovery, the spillovers over to the wider economy may be considerably more potent than the last cycle.
I can see the RBA not hiking until 2024. Indeed, I see it easing more before them via a pivot to the long-end of the bond curve with even more QE.’

I would assume netball is an Anglo hetero sport , mostly tall sandy blondes no?

Stewie

lol – I did actually marry a tall sandy blonde netballer.

My objection is to Govt funding these sporting bodies. I have no issue in them funding a diverse array of sporting facilities – it is the funding of sporting associations that piss me off, because once they get funding then they start lobbying for the Govt money to be directed towards their sport facilities which only leads to further sporting concentration.

The zenith of this outcome is the NSW Govt selling our Land Titles Registry to build a new football stadium in Sydney following the lobbying of the Rugby league body… how many netball courts, skate parks, basketball courts, velodromes, hockey rinks, etc could have been built throughout the state for the money they wasted on knocking down a perfectly good stadium to build another one that will sit 3/4 empty for 9 out of 10 games played there?

And on a pure return basis, what sort of DD did the ‘decision makers’ from Visit Victoria do about what returns $15m would bring?

Netball fans decision on travel to Victoria influenced by the odd chance of seeing the name on the jersey?

As opposed to just $5m of ad spend on an overseas market? Overseas tourists spend 4-5 times the $ than domestic.

As a business decision it’s stupid.

Anyone with half a brain.

Cheers it was a rhetorical question.

Funny how those same Alt Left types are now just rolling out the Magda Szubanski’s “apology” for her blackface episode.

She can be a racist pig, but it’s ok because she did it ages ago and anyone who blames her is a just dangerous Alt Right Troll.

After years of clearly having a lazy slovenly lifestyle, she can now reap taxpayer dosh from the ABC luvvies looking at what a fat fuck she is and how that ruined her health. But she’s the victim after all, the ABC article today says “Magda talks about her own reaction to the extent of chronic illness in Australia and why it’s not just a failure of will on the part of the individual “.

Introduced by none other than Chief Covid fear Monterer Norman Swan, whose first like was “On Gadigal land” (getting the first virtue signal in early).

Magda lists her “illnesses” as if they magically landed on her, rather than are a direct result of her obesity. “I also suffer from Sleep Apnoea “.

Huh?

Ok, she’s a victim. Everyone is a victim now. No one can be held accountable for their action, or blamed.

Even if she’s spent her career being a silly fat fuck, you can’t actually say she is one because that’s ‘fat shaming’.

It all gets very muddled when dealing with those fucktards.

Stupidity and Hypocrisy is such a massive part of their ‘psyche’.

Stewie

Her apologising for black face is ridiculous – the whole idea you can’t dress up as another race and role play and enjoy the moment is ridiculous – more than anything it highlights the importance of ‘race’ among those who object to it.

FFS it is just people having fun… I don’t have any problem with people of other races impersonating or lampooning white people, when it is in the spirit that dressing up involves. Who can ever forget “White Chicks”?

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381707/

Not my cup of tea, but I’m not going to demand groveling apologies from the Wayans brothers.

Never apologise.

As for Magda – FMD this takes being a fat fuck to the next level. Sure some people have hormone issues (supposedly) meh I’ll accept it without looking into it. But this just reeks of societies move towards ‘everything wrong with me is everyone’s fault but my own‘. It is weak, it is pathetic, it is a complete lack of ownerhip and it dooms believers into never improving themselves.

By far the majority of fat fucks are fat because they are lazy, seek comfort from their mental insecurities in food, or just have zero understanding of nutrition.

Eat less carbs in all its forms (sugar, potatoes, bread and rice). Eat more proteins, don’t avoid fat – fat makes you feel full (and for longer). Avoid all seed oils – I use gee or Olive oil (the misses occasionally uses peanut oil or grapeseed oil in her stir fries). Finally don’t eat outside of your three meals a day. Exercise regularly, even if that is simply walking the dog. Simples.

Magda is fat because she’s weak, she’s neurotic, and I’d probably guess she’s got a poor understanding of nutrition – this is probably the only thing that is not her fault, given the general public have been propagandasized in to accepting nearly the complete opposite of what I’ve suggested above.

Victoria is spending hundreds of millions refurbishing Docklands stadium and adding a shopping precinct. This will seem like pocket change when we get the 2032 Olympics bill.

Stewie

Will be an even bigger bill when they wake up to the fact that Global travel is about to become prohibitively expensive for the masses who use to like to travel to attend these events or at least travel to the city hosting it.

We are now past the Golden age of travel – in the future this will only be accessible to the leisure class of the very rich.

Well done. I once picked up a bird who was an ex under 18’s national hockey player so she said. Crazy time , naked about to seal the deal and her flat mate comes in and screams ‘hes wearing a dress and next thing my cunt mate come in wearing a red dress whilst applying lipstick. We were told to leave. That fucker owes me. She was a blonde honey.

In relation to SFS I know of some of the history in regards to that. I honestly don’t believe the NRL lobbied for it. This was the gents at the SCG trust and the previous sepo architects , they believe the centralised model of MCG to play big games and turning home fields into training facilities is the way. In the original version of the project which proposed building a new stadium on parkland the objections were deafening. The previous old boys COX were reinstated and Allianz knocked over. That stadium was perfectly fine. The sightlines were fine from the seating bowl and the capacity was ok for %95 of events. This wankery is game of mates writ large.

The sad thing is the same poptards are going to destroy the Gabba.

19 years so far – the poor long suffering Sheila. She was quite the player in the day, threw out more boxes of trophies than you’d see in a RSL foyer and even the measling ones she kept still outnumber the number of trophies I’ve won, let alone kept, ten to one.

As to the SCG Trust – don’t get me started on those fuckers. They handed over the Moore Park netball courts to private administers to look after…. for a fee. That meant that previously when we went down to the netball courts on a Sunday arvo to shoot hoops or have a skate we suddenly had to start paying $5 a person – for what was effectively public land.

In England the private enclosure of public lands through the commons lead to a civil war. Here in Australia it is approvingly justified as responsible social policy.

Massive structure in the middle of Alabama, used two weekends per year. TBH, massive fun. I was in attendance for the race back in 2008, camped in the infield in one of those massive buses with 5 other mates.

One of the punters even had a double decker strip club trailer set up, with poles and everything. Lots of local talent gave it a go, and Alabama girls are quite fine when young. At the end of the second night he got kicked out, though, Bible belt state and all.

Without more detailed data it doesn’t tell you anything specific.

covid and secondary effects are going to kill a lot of people in every country (except maybe China but it seems like they’re going to let it rip)

sweden just got there’s over and done with

Australia dragged ours out, plus added more deaths related to lockdowns on top of it (due to additional stresses on health system, alcoholism , obesity, loneliness etc)

All three countries will have roughly the same relatively small number of vaccine related deaths as they have roughly the same vaccination rates

if its the jab killing everyone, then why is sweden’s excess mortality less than ours in the post-jab era

covid and secondary effects are going to kill a lot of people in every country

So given the implied uselessness of the vaccination to prevent it how is even a single one of the

relatively small number of vaccine related deaths

justified?

Coming

this is exactly my position

i would just add that I think lockdown was way more egregious and dangerous than the jab mandates were

Lockdowns killed a lot more people than the jab mandates, and killed more people than the virus itself, as well as degraded the quality of life and the society of every single person on the planet

that should be the main focus

I agree the jab mandates should never have been in place – it was certainly outrageous, just not as outrageous as the complete cancellation of democracy and liberty and the western way of life that occurred during lockdown

its a side issue

and I also think you are all discounting the fact that the man-made covid pandemic was real and did actually kill and maim a lot of people – its also scandalous that nobody really cares to find out who caused it

But yeah our reaction to it (lockdown and to a much lesser extent jab mandates) was heinous, and worse than the virus itself

bjw678

Lockdowns killed a lot more people than the jab mandates, and killed more people than the virus itself, 

You keep saying that, but the deaths you were blaming on the lockdown are increasingly being shown to be a result of the vax as more data is confirmed and studied,

Coming

so where are all the excess vax deaths in sweden then?

bjw678

5% excess isn’t enough for you? Where aren’t they?

Coming

where are you getting 5% from?

essentially no excess deaths in aggregate in the last 18 months in sweden

Or are you still trying to combine the post vax period with the covid peak in 2020 to fool everyone

from your own data, monthly excess mortality since February 2021

-7.5

if the risk of infection is MUCH higher than the risk of vaccination, then the jab is justified
(though shouldnt be mandated)

In other words the jab isn’t justifiable for anyone healthy under the age of 50 or so, maybe 40 if obese or younger if other more powerful risk factors (Chronic lung disease, immune deficiency etc)

As I’ve said multiple times, the only reason I got it was to keep my lucrative job
On the other hand, it would have been silly for me to lose my lucrative job for the 1 in hundred thousands chance of severe adverse effect

If I was an unemployed shut-in like you guys, then yeah I probably wouldn’t have got it

But at the end of the day, the risk is small. And the opposing financial penalty was large
Absolute no brainer, and all of you would have made the same decision in my place

A fly in your ointment

But at the end of the day, the risk is small. And the opposing financial penalty was large

Absolute no brainer, and all of you would have made the same decision in my place

nope, I would not as I did not and I gave up a lucrative job to preserve my health and not take unnecessary risks associated with it. I admitted many a times, I went 180°
Another thing altogether is if the risk is rewarded directly, like taking risky jobs or say if you were paid for the jab. Knowing that the jab is a health hazzard for no tangible benefit and yet taking one to preserve a “lucrative job” imo is just a justification of a decision post decision making. Your right to do how you feel though.

the “no brainer” has a multiple meanings of which you may not like one in oarticular.

Coming

It was very much a conscious decision I made prior to taking the action

it’s also very much a no brainer

you are either mentality ill (anxiety) , stupid or a liar if you wouldn’t do it

If I offered you $10m right now to get the jab would you refuse it?

thats pretty much what you’re claiming

Absolute bollocks

bjw678

if the risk of infection is MUCH higher than the risk of vaccination, then the jab is justified

The jab clearly does nothing to prevent infection, and given the history of lying about it’s performance I tend toward is does not much to nothing about effects either. It would only be justified if it was effective.

Coming

it was probably effective for a short period of time, with regards to the variant that was circulating at that point

and of course if it improves your chances by 50%, but your risk of death from infection to start with is only 0.001% then its at best worthless, and probably harmful (given a similar risk of death from the jab itself)

so, the strategy of quickly vaccinating the vulnerable before exposing them (letting it rip) was a decent one

Of course it should only have been the vulnerable who were locked down and jabbed

The young and healthy should have been exposed to the virus early on and then got on with their life instead of waiting for a vaccine that has a higher chance of harming them than the virus does

Coming

people here are hysterical or narcissistic going on about how everyone is going to die from the jab except them

it’s wishful or magical thinking

Like people who believe they have long covid

The reality is always in the middle

This is what happens when you know nothing about medicine, but listen to grifters like steve “kirsch”

Coming

sorry i didn’t see what he wrote

you can see that when you break down the data year by year (look at my link), all of sweden’s excess deaths came in a huge spike in 2020 – clearly a result of the virus itself , as there was no jab and no lockdowns at that point

But in 2021 and 2022, they are running about average mortality, or below (the weak have been killed already)

Australia and new zealand on the other hand, have excess deaths that started out normal in 2020, and are continuing to accelerate into 2020

look at the monthly data from sweden in the photo above and you can see that its noisy but its oscilating around 0 for at least the last 18 months (the entire post-jab era) – some months are negative some months are positive.
That’s normal statistical variance

bjw678

But in 2021 and 2022, they are running about average mortality, or below (the weak have been killed already)

The excess for 21-22 averages +1.3%
for just 2022 it’s over 2%.
And as you pointed out the weak and elderly have already been killed earlier with the massive previous spike so this increased rate is occurring with less elderly and weak in the population and is still significantly positive, and the increasing rate in 2022 over 2021 would be what you would expect as the 2021 deaths were far more likely to be brought forward than later ones in the weak and elderly.

Coming

1.3%?

That’s statistical noise

And could in any case be all related to post-covid infection complications

you’ve gone from 5%, now to 1.3%
Why don’t you average the numbers from when the vaccine roll out started in sweden – February 2021

my question to you was: why does sweden have so much lower excess mortality than aus and nz?
Both are heavily vaccinated

Why are sweden’s numbers so much better if its the jab causing excess mortality?

My god its hard to deal with you sometimes you are thick

You can’t answer any of that without specific data on deaths of vaxxed versus unvaxxed.
Go find the data and I will tell you.

Why are sweden’s numbers so much better if its the jab causing excess mortality?

Are they? I haven;t seen any that actually show that.

The only numbers that matters are the rates in comparison of vaxxed and unvaxxed in comparable populations.

How can you be so scientifically illiterate?

Coming

why is poland and slovenia doing so much more poorly than sweden with regards to excess mortality, when they have a lower vaccination rate?

There is no relationship between vaccination rates and excess mortality, it is completely random and uncorreltaed

https://www.statista.com/statistics/1196071/covid-19-vaccination-rate-in-europe-by-country/

which is all you need to know to tell you that the jab isn’t the cause or differentiating factor

lol,
same old coming.
Can’t deal with the remote possibility that deaths may be caused by more than 1 thing.

I’ll go out on a limb and suggest sweden might have a much better health care system than slovenia or poland, and is probably much richer per capita and these factors effect death rates quite significantly.

This is why direct comparison of death rates of vaxxed vs unvaxxed in comparable populations(ie the same country) is the only way to say anything about it’s likelihood of causing problems. And last time I looked the UK data was undeniable that vaxxed people were dying at a measurably higher rate than unvaxxed in the UK.

Edit:
I’d imagine the excess death rate in the Ukraine is through the roof at the moment, wonder what their vax rates are like…

You are either beyond stupid or deliberately obtuse. I clearly explained what is required to make a valid comparison and you are objectively ignoring it.

Find some data comparing vaxxed to non vaxxed, not country to country by vax rates and then you might have something.

i dont know if you are fucking stupid or just a troll

but people who are sick/old/fat/ill are more likely to get vaxxed, than those who are young/.healthy/fit

Chiming in very late, but I have a similar view to Coming (not quite as harsh on others though…).I too made the decision to swallow Satan’s jizz mainly for economic expediency, and am pissed off for having been forced, but have a view that it’s your choice regardless.

This makes for a confusing stance to some, from both sides. I have always believed that your choice is yours, not mine. I respect yours, you respect mine, and clearly the risk of you to me has always been negligible. Freedom was sold off so easily by many, but my freedom was never part of the deal.

I set a very clear position with my family when discussing this, my sister was Nursing a morbidly obese patient who she thought should have all rights, yet was happy to deny those same rights for someone not wanting a jab. Worse, she and her medical colleagues denigrated the non jab people. I on the other hand see the fat fuck as the real problem – either they are mentally ill and should be dealt with as such (ie. medicated, controlled, or tossed the fuck out of hospital and off my taxes) or are lazy fucks who deserved no support as if they are a dole bludger.

The question of where this virus came from and from who, is the clearest divider in my mind. If you ignore that, or don’t want to know, or don’t care that it’s been hidden and ignored, you’re beyond help.

As usual, Victorian cops covered for Dodgy Dan, ignoring their standard operating procedures, especially when a child is injured by a car.
