So is my disability support worker lazy?
do you believe that 103 people in NZ have died as a result of the Pfizer vaccine?
the thing that worries me about it is the shunning aspect and the lack of helping people into new jobs. It's not just about protecting people in workplaces, it's also about using overt and intentional social punishment to pressure people into medicine they...
how do you tell the difference between the lazy freeloaders and the ones with legitimate reasons?
So what you're saying is that the vulnerable 5% of fully vaccinated that do not enjoy full protection from infection from the vaccine are at risk from catching the virus only from the unvaccinated? I doubt that I am saying that, but I don't actually ...
haha, just grist for TS mill.
This is no longer about health care… You had me up until there. If it's not about health care, what is it about?
"still haven't gotten around to it" Lazy fuckers 🙄 What to call people with various reasons for not being vaccinated? Unvaccinated. People without a pass is an overlapping but different group than anti-vaxxers. I guess context would determine which term ...
Please…if the vaccine is effective why do the vaccinated need to be kept safe from the unvaccinated. I just explained it in detail. What did you not understand?
I have problems with all that too. I take it as Labour needing to sort the neolib economy out, and Labour believing that people need some sense of normalcy. I can probably put darker interpretations on it too. Myself, I think there's a reasonable chance ...
Second vax mandate date for health workers is 31/12/21
Good grief. There's a whole cohort of people out there who are still in the process, but good on the lefties now using lazy/selfish memes from the right's playbook 🙄
I also consider myself at risk if I got covid. I haven't decided yet how I will manage that risk, I'm waiting to see how covid plays out in my area when it arrives. But I am thinking about things like would I be ok being in a car on a road trip with ...
Again…why do the vaccinated need to be kept safe from the unvaccinated? FFS Rosemary, this has been explained ad nauseum. Can you please clarify if you are being sardonic, or you really don't get it, or you believe that the vaccine doesn't work at all, ...
@Blade, why would there be trouble? DOC closes tracks for safety reasons at times.
I think Robert is more likely to end up sitting down for a kōrero and trading recipes. Perhaps you are projecting.
The reason Māori should have been given dedicated funding for vax programmes is because the MoH etc weren't able to do the job well enough. What is wrong with Māori doing it?
Covid vaccines prevent death in people who are fully vaccinated. Are you saying this isn't useful?
So it tends to align with reality, especially in domains amenable to measurement and data collection. But has big blind spots and gaps in other areas. What you just said is what I call 'science is god'. You believe that science is the top of the pile. Ways...
Please don't use CAPS, it's the online equivalent of shouting and is considered rude. You can use *other methods of emphasis.
what, the whole pandemic? Of course, then righties would have been able to have a go at him for not being in his electorate.
Yes, but I don't think the debate is going to advance until we know the actual numbers rather than guessing.
yes. It would help to know the reasons.
final mod note for you above James 2. Your last three comments got binned. Please learn how to use the Replies list, if you can't see, ask for help.
How many are holiday homes?
Staff writer had fun this morning, A mystery man who jumped naked on a grandmother's car has been told to hand himself in: no ifs and no butts.
I was thinking more Tina Gosman.
pretty anti-social behaviour.
thanks Rosemary. At the risk of something, lol, not sure if you have seen this. All sorts of problems with it, including the lack of references and links as well as his view about 'unhealthy', and the advertising his book, but one of the few people kind of...
