Happy New Year

About 20 years ago, life was difficult at times. One thing I enjoyed was watching the Clive James New Years Eve special show. The highlight at the end was Pavrotti singing Nessun Dorma. Things are much better  now but I still miss the good things from back then.

If This Was Your Families Budget...........

Via Catallaxy. Even though the ethically challenged red headed liar and her incompetent ministers haven't managed to place Australia in such a bad position give them time and they surely will. As for the US well it seems to me that the only way they can get out of this is to inflate their way out. That will create all sorts of other problems but I can't figure out how else they can do it. Hmmm now how will large US inflation affect our economy?

The Climate Commission Spivs

In todays Herald Sun there is an article explaining how electricity bills are going to rise by $64 per year to subsidise 'renewable energy". This is on top of the carbon tax and the current subsidies paid by people. Just about everything in the article is the opposite of the truth, yet the green carpetbaggers have no shame and ask that the government force people to pay more than they should so the carpetbaggers can continue to flog their useless products.

The 'Climate Change Authority' is the driving force behind the report arguing for an increase in electricity prices. This bunch of green dictators want you to be poorer so that their mates who flog 'green' products can stay in business. At its heart they want to force you to give (not spend) money to people they like.

From the article - "companies, which have been investing heavily in wind energy, said investor certainty was important."  Important!!!!! Bullshit!! Read it again, What it really says is this - "Companies that have invested heavily in products that unless people are forced to buy them will go broke unless people are continued to be forced to buy that product" . That's the essence of all these green schemes. Take money from some people and give it to other people.

Further - The Clean Energy Council backed the Authority's call, and deputy chief executive Kane Thornton said costs of the scheme were minor compared to the cost of inaction on climate change.
"It's a pretty low cost insurance policy from our point of view,'' he said.
Isn't it nice that Mr Kane Thornton thinks that forcing most people to pay their hard earned money for his dreams and plans is a "Minor Thing". I suppose that if someone stole a small amount of money from him he would consider it a "Minor Thing" as well. I can't see much difference between Mr Thornton and his green mates and the druggies who does a theft or robbery, after all they need the money and it's not much. Just a "Minor Thing".
It's a strange world where the 'supposedly' party of the working person - Labor has introduced taxes and levies on those people to support wealthy green investors. 
The sad thing is that there is no 'Climate Change problem' there never was and won't be. Just lots of spivs and con artists getting wealthy off the backs of ordinary people.

Another Reason Why Gillard and Labor Are Not Fit To Govern

I feel sick again, this article explains exactly why illegal immigrants are flooding into the country - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/party-time-as-pm-called-a-hero-over-asylum-seeker-detention-policies/story-fncynkc6-1226528431205

They are not looking to escape political persecution, they are not looking for a chance of working hard to make a better life. They are looking for a ride on the welfare boat. You and I are paying for these money grubbing lazy bastards to come and be given accommodation and spending money. They have never contributed to Australia and 99% of them never will. They will only end up as another underclass hooked on welfare and voting Labor to keep the money coming in.

The votes, that's what Labor wants and they are bankrupting the nation to buy the votes. How will we ever get rid of all these welfare seeking bludgers? I don't know.

My solution - have a relatively open border but no welfare at all in any shape or form for at least 10 years. That means none, no medicare, no state school education nothing. Let them come and work hard to make a life. I would exempt them from a percentage of tax so compensate for the services they cannot access. Come to think of it I wouldn't mind that arrangement being open to me.
