Factotum
I sometimes wonder what goes through these bloke's heads when they make up complete BS.
Are they that stupid they actually believe it, or do they think they can get away with just making shit up?
And when someone posts up the facts, do they think they can bluff their way out, or is it a default position to instantly dismiss the facts because they don't agree with their world view? Or do they say to themselves, geez I got that wrong, better go to bed and hope nobody notices?
It's a fucking weird way to go through life though. Kind of like the sovereign citizens who tell coppers they are going to be charged with misprison, or refuse to hand over driver's licences because the cop said "yes" when he was asked if the driver was a "living person". They just make shit up as they go along. A night in jail and a court date doesn't even make them doubt the legal gibberish they regurgitate.

have been giving some thought as to why "vic-local" is by definition a cockhead. in general true "locals" dont call themselves "locals". because they dont have to. its fucking obvious. local is a term bestowed by those "deserving" it by others. moving somewhere, how long , if ever does it take to be called a "local"? again, this is up to others, not for you to claim to be a local. 1 year after buying a spread at wategos doesnt give you "local" rights, living in a humpy at penong for 10 may get you called local by visitors, but the cave-dwellers still know they are not true locals and wouldnt use the term about themselves in front of west-coasters born and bred. yet vic-local moves to the surf-coast and touts himself on-line as a local. you are a wannabe and clown irrespective of your politics.

That may be true lounge lizard, but it certainly doesn't make your original statement
"the chief medical officer cannot order a curfew you idiot vic-local," even remotely accurate.
Loungelizard, You bullshitted, you got called out for it, and now you're trying to excuse your rubbish by pointing to an irrelevant statement. The CMO can, and always could, issue orders for a curfew after the state of emergency was called. That's just a fact you're going to have to get use to.
PS, the name Vic Local started as a joke. It was pointing fun at the crew who don't accept anyone not born in the area no matter how many hours they put in in the water over decades.

That of course doesn't change the fact that loungelizard was talking absolute shit when he said ""the chief medical officer cannot order a curfew you idiot vic-local,"

sypkan. I've answered your questions in plain and simple language, now can you answer this one. Was loungelizard wrong when he wrote, "the chief medical officer cannot order a curfew you idiot vic-local,"? A simple yes or no will suffice.

That’s a definitive strawman.

The initial point I made was that Andrew’s curfew isn’t based on protecting the citizenry. There is no medical or scientific advice recommending the curfew . There was no request by police for the curfew. It serves no purpose beyond the political theatre .

It’s Dictator Dan looking like he can be well hard on the population he is victim shaming because they suffer his fuck ups. The cucked Stockholm syndrome ‘tards amongst the Victorian population love him for it.

“ Lock . Us . Up “ they chant.

And when Vic Stupid turned this into an irrelevant argument about the medical officer’s job description it was a strawman.

You’re the exact kind of person I’m referring to Vic Local.

The medical advice says the curfew has nothing to do with Covid safety , the police advice say the curfew has nothing to do with policing Covid curfew .

Yet if someone disparages the curfew you take it as an attack on curfew safety.

Proper stupidity. I understand you don’t really do nuance but this is next level. Then again....it’s not much worse than anything you’ve said to date . Just a scared old man.

Well if people consistently lie then calling them liars is a simple statement of fact. Given that some of them knowingly lie (on the assumption that they couldn't possibly be ignorant or stupid enough to actually believe what they say), and that these lies concern significant issues and are put forward to further their political agendas, "liar" seems quite mild.

An while we are on the subject, you can't believe a confirmed serial liar about anything.

“ On June 13, President Donald Trump told the graduating class at West Point, “We are ending the era of endless wars.” That is what Trump has promised since 2016, but the “endless” wars have not ended. Trump has dropped more bombs and missiles than George W. Bush or Barack Obama did in their first terms, and there are still roughly as many US bases and troops overseas as when he was elected.”

“ Trump has shrouded his war-making in even greater secrecy than Obama. The US military has not published a monthly Airpower Summary since February 2020, nor official troop deployment numbers for Afghanistan, Iraq, or Syria for nearly three years. But the United States has dropped at least twenty thousand bombs on Afghanistan since Trump came to power, and there is no evidence of a reduction in bombing under the peace agreement the administration signed with the Taliban in February. “

Dan brought in a curfew so that Antifa, funded by the Corporate Plutocrats, could move about more freely to violently take over the cities so the immigrants can come and take our jobs and make the handover of Victoria to the CCP under the Belt and Road easier.

He probably did it in good faith, but IMHO it's probably a bit too much just makes people feel like they are being controlled or treated like kids and a bit pointless as you can only leave home for 4 reasons anyway.

Food- shops are suppose to be closed by then.

Work- If you are working at night you can still work anyway.

Exercise- Doubt much people want to go for a run late at night, but if they do why's that an issue?

For care giving- So im sure you can get an exemption if need at that time, or doubt they are going to book you if you have a decent care going reason to be out and about.

And as we know it wasn't recommend by police or the health officer.

The Victorian premier made it unlawful to be outside of your home after the sun goes down . He did this with no justification. No reason whatsoever to increase the siege mentality Victorians are experiencing.

This has to be nipped in the bud before governments think totalitarian actions of this kind are acceptable in any way in our country. Andrews should be immediately sacked at the very least and face criminal charges if possible.

If Trump did this people would be claiming he was acting like Hitler. It ain’t gas chambers level of atrocity but it’s way beyond anything Australians would consider had the circumstances been different.

This has nothing to do with ALP / LNP.

Fact : Andrews curfew has nothing to do with Covid. It’s a public servant locking people in their houses for no reason at all.

So by your own logic the only reason people would have to be out at night not covered by the existing rules was for exercise.......and of course no-one would go out for other reasons like to have a party would they? Regardless of the views of the police and the health officers I think Dan was right on this. Maybe he has a better grasp of how people might behave.
