Thought for Today

Drop in and dribble on about nothing serious. Seriously a mad place to hang out. Better to avoid it if you're not in the mood!!! If you're determined to be sad, bad, mad & angry then move along!!!

Yup.
Would the response have been different if the lady had been in her 20s with a 38” bust?
Probably...

We’re all quite un-PC it seems...
Now time for supper and a coon cheese toastie.
DOTTIE! How un-PC of you to use the “C” word!!!
(And I don’t mean ‘cheese’!)
;) :lol:

Ray I would say it would have been a more savage attack, why do people have to be "offended" for everyone else?
How come my C word is a no no but the other "C" word is acceptable??
Queen of the Banal & OT chatter and proud of it. If it offends you then tough titty titty bang bang.

Cos that’s what PC is... being offended on behalf of others who probably couldn’t give a continental about whatever the killjoys are complaining about.

Dunno Dottie,
I can’t see a problem with the word “cheese” either...

On a more serious note:
I am over 70.
I am also immunocompromised.
Therefore I am TWICE qualified to be included in the Covid-19 immunisation schedule 1b.
So how is it that a 20 year old girl with skin as white as mine, who claims Indigenous Status, has had her first injection (shown on ABC News, no less!), while I’m still waiting to hear when I go onto the list?

Yes, I know I’ll most likely be blasted as a racist, but I’m really pi$$ed off about this.

Maybe I’ll claim Indigenous Status myself....
Went back to the clinic yesterday. The Corowa head clinic is the local hub for vaccination.
They now have vaccine supplies, so I asked if I could book a jab.
Had to answer a swag of questions:
Date of birth?
— It’s in your records. I’m over 70, so I’m in the 1B lot.
Oh, yes. Here it is.
Do you have any disability?
—Yes, Multiple Myeloma.
That’s not a disability.
—It is when it’s terminal.
You have to have a disability... Downs Syndrome, physical disability...
— Would five collapsed vertebrae count?
Oh, yes! That’s a spinal injury. I’ll book you in now.

😳 So a terminal cancer is not considered a disability!
I thought I just had to be over 70 to qualify. It appears not.

Also, friend in Corowa who used to attend the hospital’s private GP clinic, but moved when a new bulk-billing practice opened, phoned to book a jab.
She was told, “Sorry, you’re not on our books as a regular patient.”
😳😡
Checked with Son-&-Heir: they are supposed to accept any and all people who qualify by age for the 1B rollout.
It seems each hub clinic is making up its own rules.
And when friend contacted the Health Minister’s office, they couldn’t give a flying duck (spelling?) about the situation.
😡😡😡😡😡
Regards & God bless,
Ray

Coon was the family name of the cheese maker who developed the particular variety and marketed it .... when will the "Black"family have to change their name? Soon having the name "White"will be considered offensive .....

There are a few "memes" using brand names that might be considered offensive, so we might avoid posting those so the "I'm offended on behalf of" crowd don't fire up .....

Just heard that the King of Spain is quarantining on his private jet.
I guess this means the Reign in Spain stays mainly on the plane. :roll: :lol:
