I know that your statements come from mis-information and personal beliefs.  It does not come from medical science or past history.

Fine, but if your goal is a conversation then show me where I am wrong.  I get a lot of opinions from you, but not much in the way of facts. 

What personal beliefs do you think would be influencing my statements?

You believe all democrats are from the far left.  You believe socialism is no good unless it favors a republican but they you try to claim it isn't socialism.

This is what someone told you to think about conservatives.  You could not have gotten this opinion about me from any of our conversations.  Hope springs eternal that one day you will think for yourself.

I am happy to have a back and forth with him, but he never backs up what he says.  He tosses bombs and runs.

Geoff you are a hoot even away from the humor section!  :grin: Good one! I?ll never forget the post by you. >Only in Oz< I rank that as one of the funniest jokes I have ever heard.  :grin:

He is an absolute legend, definately my favourite Australian. Top bloke.
I remember going to the town hall and watching him in Storm Boy many moons ago.

I really did not expect this in Australia.

Comical to see paper gown and mask.  We all know they are nothing more than virtue signaling.

For me, what tops this off is the willingness of the public to let it happen.

   Two illegal border jumpers just released after three months jail simply to attend a football grand-final. In the mean time the Omricon virus is going like wildfire because the pollies loosened all the restrictions.
   We had our booster vaccs last week, moderna and hopefully it helps as it was not pleasant for a couple of days and that it will be easier to take than a bout of Covid.
   Seasons greetings to all,   Geoff.

   Referring back to my comment on  September 07 when we were concerned by about 246 cases in the state the news has just presented as today we have 2738 cases in our state alone. The figures currently in NSW have been running at about three times that number. All the while the deaths  follow up as well.

You?d be hard pushed to find a West Aussie feeling sorry for those guys Geoff, do the crime do the time. We?ve enjoyed all the freedoms here during the pandemic and now the virus is in the state again due to an unvaccinated traveller from over east, restrictions are back. NYE festivals cancelled.
Borders here allegedly opening 2nd Feb and to be honest, as a sole trader, not looking forward to the inevitable influx.

                 Following up my report on the number of cases in December which were about 2000 a day the numbers today are 20,000 in Victoria and 30,000 in NSW.
                Probably the downside of today has been the news that our eldest son has gone down with the virus but as he works with the public it is not surprising and possibly that he had not become eligible for his booster shot yet. Ironic also that at work he has been used as a Covid marshall checking for double vaccination records and taking the abuse when he has had to turn customers away.
                My hardest recent experience with the virus was suffering virus symptoms and having to get the PCR test which meant sitting in the car for 5 hours till I got tested. Didn't cater for it but was lucky the wife left bottle of water on the back seat, however no food. Waited 2 days to get the good news.

                                  By the way on the lighter did you know the anagram of omricon is Moronic  !  !

Sorry to hear about your son Geoff, but if it's Omicron his risks are small.  Most people are getting no more than the symptoms of a cold.  The vaccine does not seem to be doing much for this variant and there is some evidence from other countries that multiple vaccines make it worse.  Might be a good thing he didn't get the booster   :wink:

Hope all is well with you guys otherwise!

    Spoke to him this morning Kathy and is a lot better today. Otherwise the rest of us are OK and probably lucky that there has only been one known family member who has contacted the virus. Will get back on messenger for another chat one day Kathy but I just dont seem to sync with US  west coast times.
  Cheers to y'all,  Geoff.

That's OK but feel free to call any time.  I don't sync well with my own time!   :cheesy:

One of the big COVID docs in Israel said that Omicron and prior infections gave better immunity than vaccines and boosters so tell your son that to make him feel better  :wink:
