This is fucking (pardon my French) ASININE!
A great number of heads in Canberra need to roll after a long ride in a caged tumbril such that citizens can pelt them with rotten fruit and stones.
I do miss the Australia of the 1970’s. 80’s and 90’s when I was thee on business frequently. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
This is fucking (pardon my French) ASININE!
First, the article is hysterical and utterly wrong. Its bullshit. Two: people ARE being moved into isolation, but they arent in a “concentration camp”, its a small village like area isolated from the main population in two very small indigenous communities..who have VERY low vax rates. Three the NT has a large Aboriginal population and COVID would rip through them… Read more »
Thanks for the background information. It was not clear at all that we were dealing with the NWT. I made it to Perth but not up to the mining district, my boss at the time decided to go there (selling rail car components at the time). I did get to go on up to QR out there in Maryborough and… Read more »
Terra, the NT ministers are moving at warp speed because they know full well what would happen if COVID got loose. We would lose THOUSANDS of indigenous people. Think smallpox and the Indians. THAT is how bad this could get. There is no forcible removal ( and that lie PISSES ME OFF NO END ), they are cooperating with the… Read more »
Gunner is a jerk, agreed. He comes off that way to a lot of people. But in this he is 100% correct, and I stand by his actions. He is doing whats necessary to prevent a major outbreak amongst people who cannot fight this disease. So he isnt a shining light of Emily Post, IDGAF. He is getting it done… Read more »
This is the line that sums it up, this is what we are worried about “What has become clear to us — based on the level of movement that’s been happening in some communities outside of Katherine — is that there is a real risk that the virus has seeded to other connected communities further away,” said Gunner. And yes,… Read more »
Do not take this wrong, but show me where “the government” of any country, including ours, has managed to “control” a virus that is basically a slightly worse form of the common cold, maybe the flu? These things go away when the population gets natural immunity and the weather lends itself to more outdoor activity (IE normal distancing by people… Read more »
Do not take this wrong, but show me where “the government” of any country, including ours, has managed to “control” a virus that is basically a slightly worse form of the common cold, maybe the flu? Deaths from COVID since 2020 – 5,159,431 It is NOT a “slightly worse form of the flu”. That or there is a real honest… Read more »
Terra These things go away when the population gets natural immunity and the weather lends itself to more outdoor activity (IE normal distancing by people going about their business).. You were either not paying attention or have zero understanding of what the potential lethal consequences if this gets loose in the NT. IF this is seeded to remote communities, we… Read more »
Messenger RNAs, also known as mRNA, are one of the types of RNA that are found in the cell. This particular one, like most RNAs, are made in the nucleus and then exported to the cytoplasm where the translation machinery, the machinery that actually makes proteins, binds to these mRNA molecules and reads the code on the mRNA to make… Read more »
Be nice now. Terrapod’s an old fart like me. My science and biology classes did NOT cover DNA, RNA and other such things. The coverage of heredity was purely Mendelian.
Im almost 60, we covered that in HS biology science classes…back in 1976. The narrative about vaccines pisses me off no end, OF COURSE we dont have a vaccine that gives immunity, we dont have a cure for AIDS, we dont have one for herpes, or the cold, or the flu either. That we have one AT ALL was a… Read more »
Sun Ng, a contractor from Hong Kong, was visiting his grandchildren in October when he caught COVID-19. Ng was admitted to Edward Hospital in Naperville, Illinois, on Oct. 14 and was placed on a ventilator several days later. Like thousands of other patients, the hospital offered Ng no viable hope of survival but bitterly fought the use of ivermectin, even… Read more »
WTF is going on? Why are all these hospitals fighting the use of this cheap effective drug? Because it isnt a proven treatment, the last review paper on the drug was pulled after a lot of inconsistencies were found. The trial was carried out on 501 volunteers, with 250 randomly assigned to take Ivermectin, and the other 251 given placebos:… Read more »
We have a right to try law. It bypasses FDA approval and if the patients family doctor prescribes it, the hospital has no standing to refuse such a treatment. This is more about big $$ from big pharma and collusion between hospital admin and such firms. I am sure government pressure is also part of the mix. .
Collusion, huh? Can you prove this? No? The US may indeed have such a law, but what may have slipped you mind is that ‘ big pharma” would rather take time and test to be sure..than have another Thalidomide on their hands. On one hand you say that the vaccines haven’t been tested long enough…and then say you want free… Read more »
Well, you can’t have it both ways either. It took Pfizer 108 days to get approval, but they will not release full documentation for another 55 years. Here’s what they did release, under the Freedom of Information Act. I can’t copy the table, but it’s here:
Reread that article.
Your beef is with the FDA. Not Pfizer. They are the ones setting the schedule.
So why is it taking the FDA so long? Could it be those 1223 deaths the FDA did release? Doctor Urso: FDA took 108 days to approve Pfizer vaccine but wants 55 Years to explain how? Call us crazy, but that makes no sense “Since the agency did not publish a single document since this group’s open records request, made… Read more »
So why is it taking the FDA so long? The FDA has always worked at a snails pace. This is..news? Could it be those 1223 deaths the FDA did release? Deaths are to be expected with any drug , anytime. They have been reported, they are public record. I am sorry they have died, but given the millions of doses… Read more »
