The Ugly Dichotomy Of The Coronavirus Coalition

The picture again tells a thousand words. Fighting the Covid-19 virus is relatively easy for a small Island nation miles from anywhere when they close the borders and crudely shove residents deemed “non-essential” into a one month home-detention. More so for a place that never had massive outbreaks anyway.  Our Pacific neighbours for example can be "Covid free" relatively easily.  But at what cost? Those powers that be are soon to find out everyone in a workforce is “essential” to it. New Zealand is NOT America, it is not the UK.  The borders are very basic to protect.  The NZ economy to the rest of the world does not matter one bit. The next bit is the problem. If the American economy fails it would create a global panic given America is THE epicentre of the global economy with nearly all trade and financial transactions done in USD.

Christine Hahn, of VetENT in Washdyke, has noticed more dog poo on footpaths and is treating more over-exercising injuries since New Zealand went into Covid-19 alert level four on March 25 - and believes pet owners new to dog walking are to blame. Well first up - clean up your dog poo.  One wishes owners were forced to pick up poo all day with their mouth if they are caught not cleaning up after their dog so let us solve that easily.  Next up.  Angela has a Rottweiler.  I was going to write a very long post that would venture into another TL;DR. All I can say is a picture tells a thousand words. There is no way in sweet hell that this dog has been over-walked. I would put the fucker on F45 Doggie HIIT training as well as cardio of at least an hour in a large paddock. Angus is given medication to treat anxiety and she puts a muzzle on her dog to disc
