Every time I see one of those videos with the quote at the top I find myself thinking no way he said that, must be out of context.

Then I watch the video and sure enough, he did.

Hahahahahaha

"Theres many per capitas, relative to what, but whatever way you look at it we are at the top on a per capita basis".

Hahaha that's just ammunition for any comedian in the world. Many per capitas but we are at the top, but the reality is they are not. 39th for all countries, 27th for all countries greater than 1m population. Oh I get what he's doing, they are number 1 when you eliminate all countries with less than 330m population. :rotfl2

Comedians across the world should organise a class lawsuit against Trump - demarcation/restriction of trade/anti-competition etc
The creator/writer of Veep talked about it. Said something along the lines that scripting the show became harder once Trump came to power as the real life was more absurd then anything they could come up with in the writing room. Great show BTW.

Good article.

What also gets me is all these names for government programmes (the private sector does this too), things like Jobseeker and Jobkeeper. Laws passed by the US Congress are probably the worst at this.

Did they read Orwell's 1984 and think it was an instruction manual?

Do they not understand that most of us read 1984 too and know Newspeak when we see it?

A more accurate water analogy would have someone walking past the boy with his finger in the dyke, saying, "Pfft. Why'd we even build that dyke."

The author (Noely Neate) notes she is a member of no party (assume this means she has no bias) but seems to have a focus on scomo bashing looking at the list of her articles. There will be plenty of hindsight bashing coming up. Not surprised the usual suspects will be giving zero credit to scomo. Reminds me somewhat of everyone crediting leppacella with the tigers transformation.

Thank Buddha we have you here to "restore the balance" by defending everything "Scomo" does, despite noting that you're "no fan of Scomo", yet championing him and what-abouting everyone else at every turn.

"Scomo" gets bashed because he's a corrupt, nasty, liar who's out of his depth and has shown he actually doesn't give a stuff about the Australian people. He gets bashed because he's an awful leader and a *smile* person.

SA has had zero active cases for 10 days. Not zero new infections, but zero people with coronavirus in the state of South Australia. Would be great if we could emulate them.

Victoria doing too many tests, about 5 times as many tests as SA.

Guess it's a bit of a Donald solution.
