Fully jabbed and boosted, and still able to acquire, transmit and suffer debilitating symptoms. As in New York and elsewhere, was the punishment for losing one's livelihood for being unjabbed an equitable and justifiable punishment?

Two scientists disagreeing with each other on the long-term safety and efficacy of vaccines for children - or adults - isn't misinformation, it's called science.
If anything should be classified as misinformation, it's the lies from the big pharmaceutical companies, which are so far past ludicrous, it's almost criminal.

Why would he take a vaccine that doesn't prevent transmission, symptoms or even death? Why would he potentially compromise his health with the very real possibility of severe and long-lasting side-affects?
In what world would doing so make even any iota of sense?

As Asians, if they're headed to CDC, prison politics dictate they'll automatically be aligned with the Blacks, Norteños, and Pacific Islanders. On the opposite side of the yard / chow hall will be Whites and Sureños. California State Penitentiaries are all about racial politics and inmate-driven segregation and whether they like it or not, they'll be expected to put in work for their gang if a riot kicks off or other issues arise. And if they don't, they'll quickly be "removed."

So the more than 80% of New Zealanders who got jabbed did so due to goodwill? Slow initial uptake due to multiple side effects being reported, and then a rapid uptake towards the deadline of the "no jab no job" mandates before losing their ability to feed their families? Just stop. You are deluding yourself if you think it was due to goodwill.
To remove someone's livelihood that they have invested their lives into for refusing Covid vaccination, without back-up financial support, essentially makes that vaccination mandatory.
And to the laughable "white supremacist" accusations here, watch the livestream and you'll see the majority of the crowd are Māori. First they lose their land, and now they're being told what they have to put into their bodies. This isn't THEIR New Zealand.

These sanctions won't work. Why? We have a weird parochialism in the West: we like nice houses, we like nice cars, we like nice things, we like being able to speak freely... we like the lives that we've created. We have grasped the falsity of the hedonistic attitude to life, and therefore it's so difficult to fathom that humans desire nothing beyond ease of security and avoidance of pain. Hey, don't the Russians want slightly nicer cars, Netflix and Levi jeans?! The reality is there are some nations and cultures don't only want comfort, safety, short working hours, hygiene, birth control and in general common sense, they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty parades. Objectively speaking, these are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life that we've fallen for.

Interesting that even Japan is more vocal than the United Nations - hardly a peep out of the UN over the invasion. Please tell me what is the point of this useless organization that does nothing but sucks up global funds? And how does the Security Council have any legitimacy when Russia is still a member?

I take the car to the dealer, pay 4,000 for a computer diagnostic printout
Why not get your own scanner? You can get tools that provide a comprehensive diagnosis for around a hundred bucks on Amazon. Just whack it in the OBD2 port and boom, there's 4,000 yen that doesn't go into the pocket of your neighbourhood scam artist, I mean mechanic.

I hope he keeps it up if not just to antagonize the idiots
So by that logic, if a leader from the opposing political spectrum came to power and tried to antagonize you and any of your ilk into supporting its agenda with terms such as, say, "beta leftist soy boy," you'd be okay with that then?

A key detail that's been brazenly ignored by the media, and Justin Trudeau - who constantly portrays himself as anti-totalitarianism, anti-fascism, anti-racism (although some pictures suggest that's not entirely his deal) - determined to depict protesters as "anti-vax" are that 90% of Canadian truckers are vaccinated. Let's apply a similar degree of circumspection - from underestimating to overreacting to needlessly insulting, to stealing legitimate donations, to levelling accusations of treason, "occupation" and "insurrection."
You don't have to agree with the protestors and their supporters, but you do have to deal with them, which in this case means giving up the fantasy that anti-mandate supporters are "small" and "fringe" which they are clearly not. Another tactic adopted by Trudeau is to declare those who oppose vaccine mandates as "misogynists" and "racists." So because you oppose mandates means you hate women and people of other races? This delusion blindness has been on display for the last few years, and all he and his government have done are come up with are strategies of suppression and containment: combinations of policing, surveillance, censorship, and propaganda.
When all things are said and done, this movement should be viewed as being on the right side of history.

One person is responsible for this mess and that is Justin Trudeau - he caused this mess by attacking Canadian citizens and taking away their freedoms. While other countries are opening up, Trudeau is hunkering down, and out of spite and personal pride, refuses to lift these unjustified and unscientific restrictions. If he would only do so, then the truckers could get back to work, the protesters could go back to their lives. everything in Canada would get back on its feet, and people would have control of their own lives again.

To see whether you really disagree with these truckers and the freedom movement in general, extract the subject from the story, and think of the principle behind it. If you are saying "I don't want these protests", then think of what really happens when you do want protest - right now you are consigning away your right to a life that extracts your right to oppose any kind of power. If you can't oppose power, then power is going to do whatever is convenient for it whenever it wants to. If the mechanic is removed - and part of that mechanic is the ability of people to come together to oppose it - then any ideas of people wanting to have a voice begin to be perjured, negatively regarded, smeared and slandered.
Wake up to what is really going on before it's too late.

Now that we know natural immunity is six times more effective than vaccinations, a responsible leader would be promoting taking care of yourself - healthy eating, exercise, vitamin D, quitting cigarettes and losing excess fat. Yet that will never happen, because all of those things are free and don't benefit Big Pharma and government interest.
If people still don't understand that this isn't about their health, then it's clearly too late.

"Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person... a vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else...it cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to go get more people." - Rachel Maddow, MSNBC.
Misinformation, plain and simple. And the majority fell for it. Therefore, now is the time to withdraw all mandates and rules that discriminate against the unvaccinated and unboosted, and any governments responsible for implementing mandates must immediately compensate them for the tens of thousands of dollars and euros lost because they prevented them from going to work.

They deport people based on presenting false information to immigration, just like, yes you guessed it, every other country on Earth. That’s official, it’s on documents and everything.
No old son, the reason for the revocation of Djokovic’s visa and subsequent deportation is, officially, because "his (Novak's) presence in Australia may foster anti-vaccination sentiment leading to other unvaccinated persons refusing to become vaccinated, other unvaccinated persons being reinforced in their existing view not to become vaccinated, and/or a reduction in the uptake of booster vaccines." This was the exact reasoning given by Alex Hawke which was accepted by the judge and led to today's ruling.
Regardless of what side of the fence you sit, God help you if you are not disturbed by the dangerous precedent that this sets.

Based on today's ruling it is now official: my former country of Australia now essentially deports people based on the raising of any questions that contradict the enforced narrative that the government want you to believe.
It is disgusting, it is shameful and above all, it is so very, very sad.
