    3 things. 1. Dark Cloud butchered that quote. Painfully so. Abraham Lincoln - Quote - Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt. 2. 3.

    Soooo... After people decided, "Nah, I like it more here" in March, they stayed away until August and thought, "damn it's better in Australia now, I should head home". Like you can't tell me people in July thought "Imma go on holiday" then had trouble getting home. Who are these people who 6 months into covid and lock-downs only then decided "Yeah I should go home now, instead of when I was told to". I was over-seas when this all went down, and thought "yeah I should probably get the fuck back home" and did with ease in March. A sibling was also over-seas and they thought "yeah I should probably get the fuck back home" and did with ease in February.

    "Stranded overseas" Fuck off. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-17/coronavirus-australians-should-return-home-from-overseas/12065050 It's almost December, you call someone "stranded" yet they were asked to return home 9 months ago, that sounds more like they chose not to return and that's on them. Also you say the number stranded over-seas increases, so what, more people are leaving than returning? Again sounds like that's on them, anyone leaving by now clearly knows the risks.

    Sounds like more incompetence from the SA government to me. Y'all were quick to blame the Vic government for their mismanagement of the hotel quarantine, but when exactly that happened in SA... Silence. We are still going great, 8 months since a locally transmitted Covid case. Great work by the WA government and god leader McGowan, doing all the right things. Properly managed borders, properly managed quarantine, properly managed State.

    I was out, the front came through and lasted all of about 30 minutes at most, with the biggest gusts in the middle. It was already 15-25 and notably raised up to 25 with gusts in the 40's over about a 10 minute span, which lasted another 10 minutes before dropping back down to 18-23. After it passed over it was a pretty nice day TBH. But, I don't get why everyone was so unprepared for it, and how there was so much damage. It was forecast, and it came in very gently after already being a moderate to strong day. I was the only boat in my near vicinity who didn't throw a kite up at the time, and by the next mark I was closer to boats in-front, had passed all the boats around me and the boats behind were further behind. I counted at least 4 broken rigs, and 6 ruined spinnakers not including the sails which were up on the dropped rigs.

    Someone said "Developing cases" and all Glady's heard was "Developers" so she couldn't open up to them fast enough.

    As predicted for the day a storm did pass through mid-afternoon. Max gusts over 40 knots.

    WHO is not someone I'd follow honestly, everyone forgets how they bungled all this at the start. WA has had far more success, has had far less limitations for 8 months longer, still has far less. Clearly the greatest success. Best for mental health, best for work, best for money, best for the economy (WA has gone up a couple percent in economy while NSW has gone down a couple percent). Clearly WA and elimination is the shining example. What is wrong with you people and me apparently being "the left". We have had the least lock-up and the least restrictions of all, that's what I support. Hell, I even just said full elimination and then no restrictions except on the border, or no restrictions and just let the weak die. I actually don't think I could be any more "Right" in that case. Honestly that just sounds full dictator to me, but extreme circumstances make for extreme measures. If NSW did the right thing with contact tracing, they would literally make it eliminated anyway, which they have accidentally twice! They just let it back in with open borders to places they shouldn't.
