Brimming With Balderdash

JENNIFER Oriel abandons hypochondriax who falsely claim the unvaccinated are a threat to their health and wellbeing. Instead, she wheels out an old Australian favourite using the barrow in every wowser’s garden shed: it’s not fair that we all have to pay for others to choose freely.

                      Covid vaccine mandates are wrong, but so are the anti-vaxxers.

There has been a degree of public sympathy for people resisting Covid vaccines. However, the mood is becoming more febrile as ICU wards fill with the unvaccinated. Australians are losing patience with people who refuse the Covid vaccine and then expect first-class treatment in taxpayer-funded ICUs brimming with vaccine refuseniks. For the people I know who insist they have a right to refuse the Covid vaccine, I agree in principle. But I do not want good people to die from pride in a foolish cause.

If it’s a question of money and fairness, the unvaccinated are entitled to a tax refund. As for dying, between 95 and 99 percent of people who contract the ‘deadly’ virus survive. There is no evidence ICUs are – or ever have been – “brimming.” Finally, on a point of etymology, “refuseniks” were not people who obstinately refused to do something. They were the minorities Soviet officials refused to release from tyranny.

    I am calling bullshit on this.
    She has obviously never heard of the Hippocratic Oath.
    Why not ban everyone who is overweight, manifestly unfit, or a smoker, from ICUs, or indeed hospitals altogether?
    The notion that someone should be denied medical treatment on the grounds of their health or vaccination status is a very recent, and very chilling one, and virtually amounts to medical apartheid.
    Dictator For Life Dan has indicated he is in favour it, unsurprisingly.
    Whether the courts will be is another matter.

    I would be tempted to say “don’t give them ideas, Lee”, but I suspect public health nazis already have a little list, and it is a lot longer and more comprehensive than yours.

    I used to like Jennifer Oriel…but something has gone wrong.

    The only thing brimming is the hyperbole treatment pond.

    Here’s the deal, and I think I’m being generous … I sign a contract not to use any more public hospitals, and I hand back my medicare card and I pay cash for any doctor visits from now on. I have private insurance, and I’m happy to use a private hospital.

    In return I don’t want to pay any more Medicare levy, and I insist that my private doctor is entitled to offer whatever out-of-patent drugs that might be useful, without interference by any TGA or other government regulators.

    If I’m a drain on the system, then y’all would be jumping for joy to have me out of the system … right? Right?!?

    Exactly, Tel. That’s a perfectly reasonable proposal.

    I’m calling bullshit on this. Here are the stats from the UK:

    From the 1st of February to the 2nd of August, the UK recorded 742 Delta deaths (yes, the dreaded Delta has not taken that much life).

    Out of the 742 deaths, 402 were fully vaccinated. 79 had received one shot. Only 253 were unvaccinated.

    Again, 402 deaths out of 47 008 cases in vaccinated; 253 deaths out of 151 054 cases in unvaccinated. If you get covid having been vaccinated, according to this data, you are much more likely to die than if you were not vaccinated!

    Well, yes.

    But those legions upon legions of tax-eating State- and Federally-based oxygen thieves who call themselves ‘Executives’ and ‘Directors’ and ‘Officers’ and their assorted menageries of Assistants, Secretaries and other assorted hangers-on still have to be paid for producing nothing somehow…
