    Trump is a chameleon.
    He has no integrity.
    ...and is willing to step on anyone who gets in the way of his ego.
    One thing he does possess is a keen ability to read people (and the general public while on the election campaign)
    He knows 'how' to speak to them and tell his audience what they want to hear, but that doesn't mean he cares.

    Trump is the ultimate showman....'roll up, roll up folks, for the greatest show on Earth!'

    He wasted no time making a multi-billion $$ arms deal with the Saudi Royal Family (they have solid gold coffee tables like him!)
    Providing tax breaks for large corporations and pushing for the Fed to keep propping up Wall St.

    Trump himself is now officially a....swamp critter.

    It seems state governors are starting to revolt against Trumps and calling him out for his inaction with this pandemic.

    It's in our news cycle or you could just watch the twitter war between Trump and the various Governors.

    I know, I know, must be fake news right ;)

    Virgin asking the Fed Govt for a handout of $1.4b loan to bail them out. Another overseas owned company (like Holden) asking for tax payers cash.
    And they won't refund or recredit my booked air fares that I cancelled because 'I cancelled a non refundable fare' due to lockdowns and self isolation rules.
    The flights that I was booked on did not fly, and there were no alternate flights offered. Just take my money, then tell me to p*** off.
    The sooner we get all our services back under Australian ownership, the better. But that is not going to happen.

    If my ancient memory serves me correctly, the Fed Govt used to 'own' Qantas way back in the day.
    It was privatised to get a Govt cash injection (like many publicly owned things that State and Fed Govts have sold in recent years).
    Now the Govt have to bail out something they owned. The wheel has turned full circle, the tyre is flat and the bearings are buggered.

    NZ government has put almost a billion dollars into Air NZ but it's done as loans. Government owns 51% now. The last National government sold 49% to help pay for tax cuts. The airline has been told the loans can be paid back as equity. I.e it will effectively buy back the remaining shares. 2nd time now a Labour government has had to bail it out and put it back into government hands.

    The hypocrisy of the "Celebrities Social Justice Warriors", harping about income inequality, all the other bullshît in between and they are the ones in 5 Star Hotels and Spas doing selfies and youtubing.

    people who are ignoring the lock down messages , single shopping only , does not mean mum, dad , and the whole frikken family , nor does it mean that your cycle club can go on a group ride , and ride three abreast , ignoring the the 45 tonne Volvo behind them , or maybe they want Ovlov stenciled on their helmet .

    I have been talking to a Friend in Flaxmere. Her daughter has five children and lives apart from her partner. He wants to take them out somewhere and my friend is saying no you can't. Seems to be falling on deaf ears and people wonder why the cornavirus is spreading.

    There are plenty of stupid people. I think the government is going to have to put in more stringent rules and harder enforcement.

    What ? Only one person can do shopping ?
    That would mean 2 trips for us ……. she gets what she wants, I get what I want, and the baskets do not mingle until the checkout.

    Yes, here it is one person per trolley and 60 persons max in the supermarket at any time. I'll admit we both go for a drive but I stay in the car and she goes in but that might change soon due to budget constraints as apparently I can shop to a list....
