Surviving in Covid times

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2″, the God Plague, or the Doom and Gloom Flu , what ever you want to refer to it as, is causing absolute hell the world over.

Is it the great plague to wipe out humanity and free the Earth from us low life humans who have lost respect for good old mother earth?

Is it the wrath of God aimed at all those non religious types that aren’t joining holy wars and slaughtering each other enough so he had to step in to fill the quotas?

Is it the man-made super virus design to be more of a weapon targeting the mighty among us, to weaken nations before the main attack and World War III begins?

Maybe it a virus aimed at the weak and the poor so the wealthy can control and own even more of the wealth without having to waste any of it on unhealthy people, poverty, lower end population? The rich get richer, the poor and sick are just a nuisance!?

We will probably never know the truth, and to be honest most people couldn’t handle the truth, or would simply hide from it anyway.

Anyway the main reason for this post is more to do with the local effects from the local governments and communities regarding the dreaded COVID19 epidemic and its effect on the normal everyday people and communities and me!

Read on, if so inclined, but heed the warnings, of Truth, Straight Thinking, Straight Talking, and the Ozi Way.

Then we need to maintain “self isolation” if you or any one around you, or anyone around them, etc etc etc, has either been in contact with someone infected with COVID19 or has any flu like symptoms.

We have been advised to follow “social distancing” guideline if your fit and well.

And remember, “we can all get through this together !” ; It would have to be the most cringe worthy and pathetic sayings, they could come up with while the government and nations go into full blown PANIC.

Anyway back to the subject at hand. Isolation, forced isolation in some cases.

So all of us responsible people wrap ourselves in toilet paper and run home to double bolt the doors and windows to ensure the big bad bug don’t get us.

We sit here and simply wait it out for 30, 60, 90 days, maybe 6 to 12 months or more and ‘normality’ may return.

Everybody’s safe now!?

The first few days, or weeks, are okay, while we relax in front of the T.V. or YouTube etc and we can sort out that closet, shed, or junk room that we kept meaning to do for the last 12 months.

We nip out to the shops to ensure we have the basic needs to survive for a week or so, like 60 rolls of toilet paper, half a dozen large bottles of hand wash, 12 packs of napkins and at least 3 to 6 disinfectants of the strongest types. Then we can get minor things like bread and milk etc. This should get us through till next week at least.

Then we go home again and be safe!

A couple of weeks go by, and we start to notice how much absolute shit is on T.V. and Foxtel etc. and how that none of the big plans we had while in isolation has been completed because at the end of the day, who really gives a fuck, and tomorrow is just going to be another long drawn out bullshit day also as everyday is now.

We can try and catch up with “friend” on Facebook, or Twitter, or whatever other platform people use to catch up with “Friends”. A good proportion of these friends are people we rarely actually catch up with in person so its not really that different. We can still send silly selfies and photo-shopped pics showing our wonderful daily lives . We can also get onto various social media sites and whinge, moan and complain about everyone, because now we are forced to hide behind a keyboard.

We can try and call out to real friends and family, ie the ones we actually care about and use to see in the real would, the ones that we use to “pop around” and say “Gedday”. Maybe have a beer or coffee, and a bit of chat.

Well???? Maybe not…..

In the odd case where they don’t bullshit their way out of it then you of course have to keep that 1.5 metres apart, wash hands every 30 seconds, and treat each other like we have the plague. Do the COVID Shuffle if anyone moves, while trying to maintain that awkward smile and smittance of self dignity, while quietly grabbing the disinfectant and wipes in preparation to wipe all those contaminated areas that may have been breathed on.

It won’t last forever and “we can all get through this together !” – AAaaaarrrrffggggghh!

Okay, so rather than fight against COVID Caused Callamity, lets be good and stay at home with our loving family, partners, friend or self!

Weeks turn into months and the all contrary to initial statements by our dictator and their minions, we’re still restricted and fucked up by them. No relief or thought gone into the well being of those that have suffered and lost so much over the 2020 period but yet more restrictions and hardship are brought in to make many suffer even more.

The fear and panic ridden being pushed on to to all regular persons of the community under the guise of Covid, and the fear mongering pushed by the news and political outlets to ensure that normality remains well away from the population for as long as possible.

Politicians in general are basking in the extra power and control they have force upon the general population. Police and security can now ignore the minor problems of modern society like crime, security and personal safety and now focus on the far more important issues of revenue raising, and fighting those that disobey the dictators rules. The crimes of these times are serious offenses like, not wearing a mask, for going outside, for walking your dog or catching up with friends; far more serious that the rampant drug crimes, violence and insecurities now plaguing many areas of Australia.

The government have destroyed thousands of businesses and put countless thousands of people out of work, and yet don’t give a shit. They happily get on television as often as they can and pat themselves on the back while introduce even more rules in their agenda to remove freedom and personal choice from a once proud nation, under the politically motivated agenda of control and power.

Freedom, as once known in parts of Australia, is a thing that is long gone, and unfortunately is not likely to change in the coming years, if ever.



Corona testing and “Getting the JAB”

Just listened to one of the 20 odd corona news updates for the day and it was carrying on about the number of tests for covid being down. They carried on like this is going to cause the extermination of 100’s, if not 1000’s of people.

I would think that the only reason a person should have a medical test is if they have reason to have it. Why get tested if you have no sysmptoms, and haven’t been in the “Hot Spots” etc. The mere thought of gathering around 100’s of people at a testing site, some of whom have legitimate reasons to be tested, and being in the mix would be an idle situation for viruses to spread.

For example: if a person is tested today, and gets the green light, and then after this test he bumps into one of “the infected” and by what ever means becomes “an Infected”, then what happens then? He goes home, gives his Wife and kids a big kiss and hugs and share the grand news that he has been granted the perceived rights of “the Unaffected” and goes on his merry way.

During the coming weeks he catches up with his mates, relatives, workers etc passing on his new aquired passenger through his day to day survival. He’s feeling okay, a little bit of sniffels but its cold weather so all good.

In the mean time all these people have been infected, if you believe all the glorified and horror stories that the politicians and news presenters are forcing on you.

Theres an outbreak! Lucky this fella was tested a week or so ago and the test was negative so he’s okay. No point getting tested again for 3 months or more.!?

In the meantime there’s another character in the story.

Due to the crowds, waiting times and limited hours for these socalled “Covid Testing Sites”, a person who may be in a country town or the outer edges of the bigger cities has been feeling crap, and knows that due to his work etc he has to move around a bit and comes into contact with lots of people from all over. He’s been listening to all these horror reports and stories being swamped all over the media and so want to make sure that this cold like flu sysptoms he has is nothing more.

He rings the local medical clinic and asks about being tested.

“We don’t do that here at the clinic, you need to go to one of the Testing sites. Theres one up the road so give them a go. They are closed at the moment but should be back again in a week or so” !?

By the way this is what recently happened to a person I know who tried to get tested. The testing site only operates on certain days at certain times.

Anyway the story continues.

This person fortunately didn’t have Covid and simply had “a touch of the Flu”. It was enough for him to decide against his better judgement to join the live testing program and “Get the JAB”.

He rings his local medical clinic and states he wants to book an appointment with his GP to discuss and organise “THE JAB”.

“No problem, we’ll make a booking. ” “How about Tuesday 2nd of November at 10:15?”

That’s near 7 weeks away, but is the earliest he can see his doctor.

“Don’t worry about it, I’ll catch up later.”

The only option left is to go to the nearest JAB centre, which, in his case, is 30+ km away and blindly get the unknown injected into him from a person who knows nothing of his medical history, and HOPE that whatever they give him, doesn’t react to his underlying medical concerns. The risk is too high for the limited reward.

Again, true story!

The point is, that the powers to be all like to state how over run they are, and the limited resources etc. , then tell everyone to go out immediately and be tested, or jabbed etc. Like good little sheep, some people do, and over run that available resources causing delays and in some cases complete lack of treatment and testing for those that could possibly benefit by it.

Dark Day

I woke up this morning, unfortunately, and almost immediately realised its one of them days. It’s 9:19am as I write this and the day is already up the shit in my mind.

Why?

Don’t know really, can just feel it.

I woke up this morning around 4:30 ish and lay awake in bed thinking, not about anything specific but just general mid morning halucinagetic thoughts of half dream and half nightmare. A million thoughts going through my head and yet I can’t focus on any.

But I knew!

By 5am I knew that today was going to be yet another one of THEM days. Yippee!

I faded on and off to the light sleepy dream world a number of times for 10 to 15 minutes, sparking myself awake to look at the clock. Yep, it’s still there.

I heard my wife getting up and starting to go about her morning rituals a bit earlier than normal as she was heading down to town with friends to say farewell to their friend who was heading off on permanent holidays in paradise or ….. This lovely lady died a week or so ago, so today was the big funeral day. Not a good day for my wife either, I believe. The joys of age – death.

Anyway back to the main dialogue.

It may be something to do with death floating around today that has affected my own thoughts, but generally me and the reaper talk quite often inside my universe. I’ll end up telling you a few stories and the conversations I have with numerous characters.

Anyway, back to the original dialogue.

I ended up dragging myself out of bed at 7am and greet the day with a grunt, moan and a strong cup of coffee.

Having a bit of chit chat with the wife before she had to leave for her adventure, and sat back with my coffee, toast and my dog and watch a bit of the morning comedy while contemplating the day to come.

The suns up but the darkness is hanging around. All I can do at this stage is muddle along and try to capture a little light every now and then.

Hello Darkness, my old friend!

Gedday from an Ozivoice

Welcome to my world.

Had great plans for this and other sites but thanks to Covid and the way the world has turned, I give up up on the original ideas and basically just going to wing it and see what prevails.

This site is just going to be a rough blog for me and a bit of a journal of all things that make me. Nothing more, nothing less.

I’ll start with a bit of background and personal history, as well as some current ideas of how this site and a number of others I’m involved with might start to interlink a little; or a lot. I’ll upset a few, I assume, and I don’t really care if I do.

The best place to start I gather is with a bit of a background story.
