    WTF is a flu shot going to do anyway?
    It's got nothing to do with preventing the spread of covid.
    I can maybe understand it being mandatory for aged care workers to help prevent the spread of seasonal flu, but apart from that, footballers?, F off.

    This is exactly what I thought watching that very public debacle. It looked like a Trial Balloon if ever I saw one.

    Just back from seeing my father (85) who was hospitalised earlier this week due to fall (collapse) he had at his home. Dad has had heart problems in the past but scans showed all clear on same and health is okay for 85 year old who is still mobile and lives independently.

    Doc's noticed a chest infection in Dad and asked him if he'd had the flu vax this year..."Yep 3 weeks ago". Doctor at hospital (specialist in geriatric medicine) openly admitted she thinks the flu vax Dad had has created the infection in Dad (which wasn't overtly obvious nor impacting Dad) and that infection is what has kicked the crap out of Dad and led to him collapsing. Luckily he only lost some bark of the elbows and small bump on the head and will recover fine, but that god damn flu shot...........can't wait to see his GP and give her the news on that.

    Anyone got the cost of one of these yet? trust me we are farrrrr from screwed by these things. There are so many ways to scramble electronics these robots are just expensive pieces of junk that will destroy all budgets if they start policing with them. How many of those electric bikes ended up in the Melbourne river? Lol..
    I’m more worried about the technology being hacked and weaponised for anon guerilla assaults sparking an urban robotics arms race

    A week ago in Singapore, they announced that all caretakers working inside old aged care facilities need to be swabbed and must either live on the premises or in a hotel.

    I never really believed it could get to this point so quickly. I was anticipating a financial crisis or collapse, but certainly not a medical crisis/pandemic occuring right on cue to take the blame for it all.
    I wonder what the next 24 months hold for us. I'm not scared or fearful of any particular outcome, I'm saddened that we have allowed ourselves to get this far. There was already enough to be appalled with before this outbreak of tyranny slithered it's way into all our lives...

    The financial cartel are the head of this snake and I don't think anything will ever change until people really wake up and begin to see that our problems are systemic and engrained into our society.

    We've had plenty of time to prepare. A 30 year bull market had to pop.
    Now is the time to prepare, if you haven't, this could be your window of opportunity to.........................................

    The possibility of a pandemic arising out of natural evolution did occur to me, and I know they will try to do something to crash the stock market so that Trump can't be re-elected so when it happened, it wasn't totally unexpected.
