Does this sound abusive to you?
My friend’s husband won’t let her visit any friends or family. He has made her stop all contact with them unless it’s on the phone or computer.
He reads and censors her comments on social media. He makes her feel like she’s going crazy for thinking he’s controlling, and that she is being ungrateful.
(After all, he’s only doing this because of how much he cares about her.)
He doesn’t want her going to the gym anymore, so she doesn’t go. He also doesn’t let her go to work anymore (he told her to only rely on him for income and that he will take care of her).
She’s not really allowed to go out anymore, unless it’s for necessities, and when she does, he makes sure to have people guilt trip her about it and shame her for it.
He wants her to have this medical procedure done and tells her that if she does it, he will allow her more freedoms.
He constantly says he’s only doing all of this because he cares… he is just doing it for her own good.
Oh wait….did I say husband? I meant the government.
Y’all are outraged if a person does this to their spouse, but are passive and compliant when it comes to our government.
Listen and start asking questions.

Copied and pasted from Facebook but thought it made an excellent point
Not understanding how delegated authority works doesn’t make Public Health Orders invalid or unlawful.
John S in support of John B, it has been a long-standing legal principle that an instrument will not be invalidated by a minor defect such as the absence of a signature if it is clear from all the surrounding circumstances that the relevant missing item would have been there.
So if Health Hazard issued the order electronically from his official email address, the absence of a piece of paper with his penned signature does not represent an operational defect.
So what about the rest of it?
Well No Plan Dan’s “short and sharp” lockdown will continue until at least late October.
Say, restrictions ease on Friday, October 29th (when we hit 70% vaxed), that would mean this 6th lockdown would have gone on for 86 days (a bit more than the planned 8) !
In addition, Melbourne would have been in lockdown (individual house arrest) for a staggering 271 days . . . Yes, that’s right 271 days i.e. 9 months out of the last 19 months !
At least in a domestic violence situation, which I have been in, you can call in the police and get a restraining order, go to a lawyer, get outside advice and stop the perpetrator (in most situations) from inflicting further harm. That makes it sound easy, but it isn’t and takes enormous courage. But in my case the police gave me extraordinary support. With the political situation at the moment we have very few options, and those that would normally provide sensible, authoritative support are in the same situation as us. There is no where to go, no one to plead your case to and the one group of people that we would normally turn to when our rights were breached, the police, have been made to turn against us. I do not believe the police force as a whole is on side with this, as most have a different attitude. But I believe they are being turned into thugs by the political bosses.
An apt analogy indeed, and a lucid comment from mem.

Really? What principle is that? This is not equity or a sale of land. What case/s tell/s you this? What specific legislative authority authorises this?
*Oh look, the judge didn’t sign the warrant, let’s execute it anyway*
The law/regulation is probably in contravention of FEDERAL law.
Section 109 is well established too. Let’s not get carried away by obscurities when the basic law is operating.
*So if Health Hazard issued the order electronically from his official email address, the absence of a piece of paper with his penned signature does not represent an operational defect.*
I am finding this hard to believe since electronic signatures are a thing.
Here is a signed health order. In ink and from Hazzard’s own hand.
They need to be signed.
Seems to be a massive false equivalence really , totally ignoring the existence of a pandemic. Can agree that actions are out of proportion but the analogy seems seems like emotive tripe.
If anyone has wondered what happened to Delingpole & more importantly what is going on here & elsewhere

Yes, very good.
I also Like Dan Bongino’s Parler post:
Yes, a lot of people have died from COVID.
Yes, many more will die.
Yes, I could be one of them.
But living in eternal fear of the above means I’ve already forfeited away my life and therefore I’d be dead anyway.
I choose to live.
And I’m not looking back.
The fallacy is yours..
The WuFlu is not ignored. In both cases, real harm is being done.
Your failing, and that of Government, is pretending that this harm can be ignored if only we shout PANDEMIC loudly enough.
To those who think a signature is a minor defect should comprehend that a signature is one of the dictums of contract. Offer, acceptance, consideration, a meeting of minds, wet in , there are a couple more which fail me at this time but wet ink is a key component. So, is a mandate a direction or an order or is this an offer to contract?
Everything is commerce therefore contracts are essential as is consent and even more for we are dealing with a corporation masquerading as government.
