  1. I don't agree with the legalizing casino argument. All it does is industrialize and condone gambling with the vast majority of money being funneled in being proceeds of illicit means. It will bring in a hell of a lot more dirty money and along with it criminal entities. No casino is squeaky clean. Even in Australia where I am from, revelations have been revealed of knowingly facilitating and encouraging large scale money launderers - in both casino groups.

  2. I read one opinion from a virologist/epidemiologist in relation to Omicron in that with regards to admittedly only early data, Omicron, although allegedly a lot more infectious, may have less severe symptoms.

This is known as a 'breakthrough infection' as the vaccine did not prevent infection. I felt typical flu symptoms first. I went to hospital and they confirmed through a test I had COVID. Isolation for 14 days. I lost sense of taste and smell, suffered vertigo, delirious feeling, listlessness, extreme fatigue, headache.
