    Our charming Tomičić in public dresses very casually, but she always comes across elegantly with class. (Sort of the Audrey Hepburn of Chile.)

    Regarding the subject of this article — about the COVID19 pandemic, Sweden's model is proving to be the best method in how best to confront the pandemic.

    The Bicho is moving fast Northeast ..., very fast...

    DK and IS have already been hard hit by the Bicherío...

    N..., S and FI are surely next..., I reccomend you start using proper information sources (as the Norwegian link I provided you) if you want to learn instead of troll...

    With sincere respect, I attach one of many articles that underlines my opinion.

    I am not alone in my beliefs about how this pandemic has been poorly handled. There are numerous European highly informed medical experts that are agreeing that the lockdown policy is not a good strategy.

    We are here in Chile are suffering the inept bureaucrat nanny state that has deeply harmed our country, our spirit and social order. There are untold secondary second hand harms to our people that will impact us for years.

    I believe we will see effective vaccines available by Q1 or Q2 worldwide — but the effectiveness will be probably no fully effective as prior flu vaccines.

    We need to also understand that most masks being currently used by the public are ineffective and can be detrimental overall.

    But then again — I also believe Trump will win in a landslide, which all the media experts document, with polls that I'm completely wrong.

    “Time will tell the tale” was a favorite saying of my grandfather... We will see!

    Again, you are missing the “big picture” and frankly, perhaps other than a few evil involved with the creation — our worldwide medical community did not understand this vicious virus that has slaughtered millions.

    Attached is an open minded review arguing both sides, but does show “flattening the curve” has only delayed the death toll.

    In any case, I strongly encourage everyone to continuously wash their hands with soap and get on with normal living.

    1) In a previous thread..., you plainly dismissed a valid information source I linked to as “Scientific American” is..., just because some Ugly Sandnigga Extremists you Googled on the Internet wrote somewhere that S. A. was controlled by “Ze Djermans”:...

    2) Now..., in this thread you link us to a similar valid information source as “BMC”..., owned by precisely by Ze same bloody Djermans...

    3) And finally..., to top it all..., in a figment of your strange fantasy..., you declare that your linked article shows that...: ***“flattening the curve has only delayed the death toll”***... what it DOES NOT...

    I do not Think it's me missing the *“Big Picture”..., hermanito...

    Oh I see the big picture from here. We have approximately 19 million mixed mestizos of which I am only one. We have had 447 thousand confirmed cases and over 12 thousand deaths. The virus has been exceptionally vicious to our aged community. You do the math, as my calculator informs me the cure is worse than the disease.

    As I actually sometimes respect your opinion (repeat,sometimes), but please consider the attached interview with Sweden's head epidemiologist who has managed the pandemic since its unusual development throughout the world.

    This took place about a week ago:

    You'll note their discussion together on why Swedes are not utilizing masks.

    When this pandemic began in Chile, we all docilely agreed to a lockdown to flatten the curve. That was many months ago!

    Families were separated, children were kept out of school, people lost their income and businesses — as well as everyone seems to have severely neglected their health monitoring. The social damage is immence!

    On the positive side of this crises, many of us have quickly profited — by seizing the many marvelous opportunities. I certainly have — as “who dares wins.”

    Meanwhile, I'm thoroughly enjoying the election turmoil in the USA. The media polls ALL are showing Biden will win the Presidency — yet I'm convinced Trump will instead!

    (Time will tell if contrarians are correct.)

    In any case, I sincerely hope your health remains strong.

    As most adolesesent mentally challenged Marxistas, you have your facts all mixed up with you pathetic Argentine frustration.

    It was YOUR dictator that was responsible for over THIRTY THOUSAND ARGENTINES of which many were disposed by throwing the bodies into the sea from helicopters.

    It was the ARGENTINES that brutally harvested babies from their pregnant mothers that the viciousness Argentine bastards then murdered them.

    Learn your miserable history before opening your mouth again, because you look like an Argentine imbecile.

    Have a pleasant day!

    2) Más luego..., yá confirmada la victoria del “libre comercio/contagio” del Bicho en los arriba nombrados hogares Suecos..., se prohibió el traslado de los viejos chotos contagiados a hospitales provistos de respiradores..., para evitar el “libre comercio/contagio” del Bicho a la población economicamente activa...

    3) La recomendación oficial al personal a cargo de dichos hogares de ancianos fue simple... Aumentar la dosis de opiaceos...

    I've just arrived to Chicureo in a blistering fast drive as the traffic was minimal. (Madame's girlfriend has warned us that Williamson Balfour Motors is continuously monitoring our driving — but thankfully the Carabineros cannot!)

    Again, I appreciate the very valid and stark conclusions on the data you kindly provide which PROVE exactly what I'm talking about. The Sweden herd immunity strategy is the best for Latin America.

    The Swedes openly admit that their initial methodology was in error and sadly thousands of the elderly died by this vicious viral infection. However, saying that — they did not isolate the elderly from family contact which has proven to be cruel and inhuman. In the case of the USA, the State of New York adopted a policy of sending infected patients to elderly care homes for care — resulting in the massive death counts of the older patients that were denied even saying goodbye to their family.

    I suggest you take a look at this amazing info-dashboard to get a better perspective of the overall worldwide pandemic:

    Also, the WHO has made a public statement that even when an antivirus has been proven, still it will require people to continue to use masks in public. (Personally I have little respect for — and all of this is way too much for our society in Latin America to accept.)

    You can't expect Latinos to act like Japanese — which has protected their society for centuries.

    Saying that, we have a Venezolana responsible for requiring routine washing of hands with soap — which alone was excruciating difficult to enforce voluntarily.

    We live in dangerous times, but the world cannot be shut down without causing further unacceptable and unanticipated damage.

    Closing of children's schools alone will result in a lasting scar on our people and the loss of income — has been terribly cruel, especially for the poor.

    Even if I were to be so stupid to be enamored by the very fetching and intelligent safety specialist — she's already the girlfriend of one of Viña von Siebenthal's oenologists.

    The very-very dangerous woman of temptacious lust is actually Madame's gorgeous alluring girlfriend...

    She was seriously seductive at Valle Nevado and Madame was very-very aware.

    Speaking of dangerous risk — the Lauritzen shipping representative here has also matched the Maersk wager of two cases of wine — in my “foolish bet” that Trump will win the coming election.

    This current battle over nominating a new Supreme Court Justice there is causing a firestorm — very entertaining and better than Netflix!

    ***“She's already the girlfriend of one of Siebenthal's oenologists.”***... and soooo what....?
    Ever heard about a Menashatrua...?

    ***“The very-very dangerous woman of temptacious lust is actually Madame's gorgeous alluring girlfriend...”***.
    That must be the “Lease a Car”lady that already got you into a Beemer menashatrua..., right...?

    ***“The Lauritzen shipping representative here has also matched the Maersk wager of two cases of wine — in my “foolish bet” that Trump will win the coming election.”***
    Don't worry..., unlike the Yanks..., we Scandinavians do appreciate a good loser...
    Your little lost wager will surely pay off manifold in the HR area.. (As your original plan goes...;-)

    To finish...
    Before Yankee November..., comes the battle where the First Nations and their many million mestizo flaite brothers of Shile will raise and vote against Institutional Cuico Social Injustice on the anniversary of la marcha más grande de la historia de Shile..., the 25th. of October 2020...
    Very entertaining and much better than Netflix..., indeed!

    That particular gorgeous seductress indeed...

    In the world of automobiles, if Madame is a Citroën SM — her alluring girlfriend is a Ferrari Daytona Spyder...

    ...her ex-lover (the former owner of two properties that we now own) I'm told, has fallen upon some very sad times financially — less than a year ago was living the high life. (He's now hiding from his ex-wives and angry creditors at his brother's vacation home in Zapallar I'm reliably informed.)

    ...anyway, I've also foolishly placed my head in the frame of a guillotine — with the blade ready to fall...

    Regarding your highly anticipated Chileflix multi-episode drama — there will again be anarchists in the streets, but I don't expect the violence or property damage we saw earlier this year. Workers have already taken a terrible beating during this pandemic and most people want to see viable change — which they will indeed achieve.

    The question is however — just how much?

    Regarding wagers: I always play the long certain game and Trump is the Black Swan that defies the political logic. He will win the USA Electorial College!
