Re: The Politics Thread 2021

That was 2/3rds of legal age voters voted this time, the most in history. I didn’t include children.

Plus, only roughly half the country voted, so it's more like 23% of the country voted for Trump and a minority of those are bat**** crazy lunatics who have been waiting their whole lives for this "revolution". The number appears much higher than it actually is. Nope, can’t agree with you ...

Vaccine question for the good doc: Of the vaccines we'll be getting, Pfizer will be the effective one at 90%+, though the most effective vaccine will be used entirely on priority recipients. Joe Average will be getting AstraZenica at ~62% effectiveness. Supposedly we need 100% take-up of a vaccine ...

Re: The Politics Thread 2021

I think there's genuine concern around what Trump supporters will do if they remove Trump before the 20th. The real plan of this current impeachment seems to be more revolved around making sure he can't sit again in four years, not removing him from office ASAP. I agree 100%. The real aim here shou...

There is zero reason for people from say Broken Hill to be restricted out of other states. Im happier to lock down harder on travel restri...

A short lockdown would give contact tracers time to get on top of it. I would understand if it was for two we...

Looks like everyone has hit the shops ahead of the three day lockdown in Brisbane many without masks. Kinda defeating the purpose folks...

Re: Coronavirus

Here’s a fun fact, the central coast currently has 1 more active covid case than the ACT, and the same amount of venue warnings... zero.

Compulsory masks start tonight at selected venues. Do you think the act should be locked out of other states based on those stats?
