My cat senses can pick up on all the hatred from trumpybelievers around the world, when Obama is doing somethig !!..

The left have been spewing hate non stop for since Trump won. Obama, with this speech, is just fueling that hate.

They're worried. The dems that is. Joe is hiding. There's more to drop. The left wing media's bias will be futher exposed. Trump will win. You'll all lose your minds. Again.

Posted in: Europe, U.S. reel as virus infections surge at record pace See in context

This is a misrepresentation of the situation, put forward by laymen who feel qualified to speak as experts

Like the fearmongering mainstream media and opportunistic politicians.

What economic harm has it caused, and how does this compare to the amount of economic harm to nations who haven't taken the same steps as NZ?

Apart from those already forced to shut up shop, when the wage subsidy ends (shortly) there will be wave of unemployment.

Stuck? Stuck how?

Because there is no end in site. Without a vaccine the rest of the world will continue to learn to live with it.

Not in NZ. The lockdown hasn't caused major harm, and now the people are living life as normal.

What good will continued lockdowns do? Delay the inevitable. Unless a vaccine is found.

It seems COVID-19 is proving the parallels drawn between it and the 1918 flu pandemic right.

No, it's not. The increase in deaths is a result of seasonal change, correct, but it's a blip in comparison to the initial outbreak. Data is consistently showing the infection fatality rate is lower than first thought. Continued lockdowns cause more harm than good. NZ did well enough at first but they are effectly stuck now with no way out until a vaccine is found. Any time new community cases are found they'll lock down again, causing more economic harm.

Posted in: Ardern set to win in New Zealand's 'COVID election' See in context

@Strangerland - It's more than covid. It's more than 'kindness'. They have a track record of failure. She has had a 3 year opportunity to do a good job. Her govt had plenty of time to make progress but instead nothing has been achieved except increading benefits and middle class welfare. Housing? Worse. Poverty? Worse. Job prospects? Worse. This was BEFORE covid. As far as I'm concerned they need to show a plan to get us out of this mess. I haven't seen anything in them apart from shutting down the country and the ongoing thread of further shut downs. She's benefitting from fear. All for a virus that has ifr of 0.23% (as per peer reviewed, accepted and edited study... and then published on the WHO website).

The cult of Jacinda. NZers appear to be incapable of seeing past her 'kindness'. Her government hasn't achieved a thing. They are incapable of delivering. They are evasive, defensive and lack transparency... despite their claims to be the most transparent goverment ever. Many of her front line ministers are first class hypocrites or simply just useless. Their initial covid response was probably ok, but they have now painted NZ into a corner.

Posted in: Biden: Trump ignores pandemic, stokes unrest, solves neither See in context

Could one of you highly intelligent Trump supporters explain to me how dems are failing to respond to the violence when they are sending the police out in force to handle the violence?

The democratic run cities could have ended the violence if they wanted to. Instead they allowed it to continue for months and refused any federal assistance that was offered. Heck - they're only just starting to accept that there is violence perpetrated by anyone other than the police... and that's probably only because the polls are swinging in Trump's favor.

Democrats aren’t sponsoring violence. It’s appalling that these entirely incorrect assertions are allowed to stand.

I love how the left flip flops on the validity of incorrect assertions

Posted in: Biden hits campaign trail; blames Trump for city violence See in context

wait....what? there is no violence and has been no violence over these last months. Dems said so.

Its just people doing that they do, and the "myth" of Antifa.

All the burning, looting, assaulting, its all been "peaceful" protests.

But now because of bad polling for Dems. there suddenly is violence and Trump is responsible for years of it?

So true!

Perhaps, but if they are, I suspect it's in response to public feelings. If we want to be cynical, we would say the media follow the money more than the politics.

I agree that they follow the money. I don't think the media responds to public feelings so much, though. I think the media has a massive influence over public feelings. Fear sells. The whole 'if it bleeds it leads' thing.

It works if you catch it very very early. The lockdown in Victoria isn't as strong as that which New Zealand endured, and they were able to get things under control.

For now. Wait a little bit.

Nobody with even a tenuous grasp on reality could be taken in by these self-serving lies.

I don't know. I also don't care. But it's a great way to combine 2 things to create more fear. I suspect we're going to hear a lot more on this subject in the future - climate change alarmists will love it.
