That's a bold assertion. Point out where you think I lied.

$301k per person... how efficient 😬

Lots of asinine govt spending here as well, so you're not alone in your frustration.

Definitely something suspect about the whole deal.

The other quarantine facility proposed in Brisbane (Pinkenba), approved and funded by the federal government, was going to be 1,000 beds and cost $400M, and was going to be a government asset. Wellcamp is 500 bed and (will) cost QLD taxpayers $235M and did not meet federal requirements (location distance to airport and hospitals), and is an asset of a large private company (Wagner Corporation). $45M original payment by the government plus $150M leasing fees over a year to Wagner. QLD taxpayers just donated $200M worth of assets to Wagner.

I'd love to see the CCC go through this one.

Knee jerk politics. Our elected 'officials' wanting to be seen to be doing something meaningful when in fact they don't have a clue.

Mauserand9mm: I am sad to hear that the Australian Government has been taking lessons from the federal government here in the United States of America!
We all must be more careful who we vote into office.
Sad.

Voters have their share of culpability. Especially when it comes to 'keep us safe.'

I have no idea how Austrailia is doing as far as covid issues,
sad to say.

But people in my area are pretty much over it. We seem to be having
an uptick in cases over the last month, most folks either just "are sick"
or home test. Only a few even talk to Medical Personnel.


I checked the date of
the OP, thinking this was a year old.

Like I said, anyone with a mask is categorized as some city fool or a kook.

That said, we were at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh last week.
The hospital monopoly that owns it requires masks on everyone.
Wife and daughter knew that and found a dispenser, I completely
missed it. Not even on my radar. Seeing all those masks pissed
me off. They are never going to back off of that power to force
compliance.

30 months ago we were told that only N95 masks had a chance of
possibly being effective. And yet 2 1/ years later they require folks to
put something, anything, over their face. Cheap paper, thin fabric....
There is absolutely no logical reason to do so.

And yet, with the exception of one hillbilly family I saw and myself,
not a single person seen over 3 hours didn't 100% comply.
Even watched 2 people sitting at a table drinking coffee, wearing masks.
Moving the darn thing for every single sip, then putting it back.


Where we cling to our God and Guns.

Between Pittsburgh and Philthy. The Alabama part of Pa!

Australia has no Nukes.
Small countries w/o Nukes are toast.
China or Indonesia will take over by 2030.
