and still he managed to pass a huge infrastructure bill that will benefit all Americans,
You have no idea on what is in that bill. Is a common practice in DC to stuff the bill with all sorts of irrelevant clauses. The title is meaningless. The US Congress, if they have a weird idea that cannot be passed, is stuffed on other bills. Also, Congress has a Money Tree, just with a few strokes of the magic wand and pesto, cash on credit comes to existance. The USA is broke, they are just running a Credit Card to oblivion; is a nation on its last legs. Keep in mind, the USD is the world reserve currency, when it goes to nothing, what will happen to the rest of the world?

I say, pass the damn thing (bill), print more cash; pedal to the metal.

Point of order. The whole world is just running a credit card to oblivion seeing as we are all part of the fractional reserve system.

What the US is doing right now is basically just kicking the can down the road by inflating some of the debt away. Myself I think a better idea if your going to run a money = debt system is to have a debt jubilee instead.

I quite like the concept of debt being no older than 7 years. That would stop the moneyed class from turning everyone into debt slaves for their whole lives just for the privilege of buying a house. It automatically puts a hard limit on bidding up of house prices if the loan can’t be any longer than 7 years.

Under the current reserve currency system America gets the huge advantage of being able to print money and get actual goods in return. The rest of the world puts up with this at the moment but it could all end up going pear shaped if everyone loses confidence in the USD.

Nothing new there. The bill was already watered down during negotiations to get it across the line. Non the less, doing something is better than doing nothing as partisan politics has shown us in recent years. Money spent by the government on local issues is money going back into the country/local economic merry-go-round. This is a good thing. Money spent on bombs and bullets and fuel used on foreign soil is money wasted.

The way you are talking you may as well get a couple of nukes and set them off around the US, wipe the US off the map and get it over and done with.

What will happen to the rest of the world? There is the Euro or heaven forbid, the Renminbi (**** Xi would love that ****). But don't worry, should the US fail we will all still be here trudging along and hopefully not learning to speak Mandarin!

This is getting on my nerves. Most other NZ'ers have gotten themselves vaccinated without needing special attention.

All I can say it's time for some people to take "personal responsibility" for their own actions or lack there off and stop trying to hold the rest of us to ransom!
Is there some kind of special Maori needle or something? FFS all you do is go to a doctor and get a jab, end of story. Theres nothing “cultural“ about it and nor should it be. Trying to blame the government is just a cop out for their own slackness in getting vaccinated.

So, these people came on the plane of their own free will, during the trip they weren't shackled and received food and water, nor were they beaten for not following instructions and to top it all off they are going to get paid for the work they have chosen to do?

Yup, like the slave ships of old!

Damn we are cruel these days, I bet those bastards even have legal documents to hide their true intent.

Interesting stats...
https://www.roymorgan.com/findings/...-approvals-vaccine-november-2021-202111240941

A large majority of 76% of Victorians agree that an employed worker in Victoria is not allowed to enter their employer’s workplace unless fully vaccinated compared to only 24% that disagree, according to a special Victorian Roy Morgan SMS Poll conducted yesterday (November 24, 2021).

Agreement with this policy is consistently strong across Gender, Age and Location although there are significant political differences. An almost unanimous 96% of ALP supporters agree with the policy compared to 91.5% of Greens supporters but only 55% of L-NP supporters and just 4% of supporters of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party (UAP).
I guess "independent thinking" encompasses all matters of life.

A brilliant piece of politicking....


All hail Pfizer (sarcasm) the gift the keeps on giving!

This guy wants to be Auckland next Mayor.

I should also add that NZ has purchased a new Covid anti-viral drug, just not the one from the gift that keeps on giving (gotta fact check those wanna be politicians). With lies like this I guess he doesn't want my vote.

SARS and MERS are both contagious when symptomatic, Covid is not. It is relatively easy to control a SARS or MERS outbreak, with Covid, it is not. He is an idiot.
