The Australian economy is in trouble, we are spending too much, it has to be curtailed. Who are they fucking kidding. The last government under Howard and Costello amassed a huge surplus and gave us nothing. Now we are in trouble coz we are spending too much. Thats true, I am spending more, I have to coz everything is costing more so its bloody obvious Im spending more, basics are more expensive milk for instance. Cows are now getting paid more. so are apple trees. $9 for a kilo of apples, thats bullshit. So whats the truth of it all. People are spending more, BUT ARE THEY. For instance retailers are saying there are getting plenty so thats the measure that government and treasury take into consideration to determine the state of the economy. BUT IS IT TRUE. I dont think it is, for instance most big retail stores advertise goods for sale, furniture, televisions, Hi Fi s whatever. Buy now and dont pay anything untill 2010 0r 2012, so you front up and do the deal a flash Television for $2000 but dont pay for 2 – 3 years. The retailer get his money from the finance company so he s sweet you have the debt for a later date. How much did you physically spend in money? NOTHING, but you have a debt down the track. Now all this crap starts before and over the christmas period when everyone wants to treat themselves and others and so they go on the spending spree. Headlines ” Australian Spend Up For Christmas New Year” Credit card debt is at a high. Who fault is it, the housing crash in the USA, Bollocks its induced right here in OZ, finance companies square off the retailers and sit back. The consumer has done nothing to cause the problem but we are paying for it through interest rates and high food prices etc. We are being cheated big time and they keep telling us how bad it is so we dont expect anything better from the cheating bastards. Im sure Mr Rudd appears to be doing a good job so far and perhaps the National Anthen should be changed to “He’s A Jolly Good Fellow” but Im beginning to think that I dont trust him, Im a pensioner and im spending too much, thats a joke a refugee gets more than a pensioner in Australia so what about that……………..thanks for nothing.
More golden words from Malcolm Arrogance the 2nd He reckons that all extra taxes that will be collected and create a surplus should be spent on the people it was collected from. What a memory this man has, Smirky Costello amassed 64 Billion dollars and was againts it being spent by the present government. Does this Liberal party now in opposition think we are all morons that have no memories of the awful years they were in govenment, a government that in the last budget gave pensioners a $500 one off payment when everyone else got cuts to increase their spending power to keep up with prices of fuel and food etc. Mr Arrogance is a fraud with no memory or thinks we dont have one so my advice to him is to keep him mouth shut up then he wont keep putting his foot in it Costello was protecting polititians pensions and future superanuation with no thought for ordinary Australians. Australian Liberalism = personal greed
Ive just returned from the USA where unfortunately nobody has ever heard of Western Australia, let alone Perth. But thats ok, thats not the fault of the citizens of the USA its our bad tourist beareau that is so short sighted it allows the Eastern side of our country to dictate what anyone knows about Australia and we dont get a mention. Amyway thats another subject. Ive arrived home in time for the general election and the right to be made to vote (like it or not or be procecuted) so having been spared all the crap that spills from the mouths of the Camberra Liars during the past six months I have to make a decision who to vote for. There isnt one of them I personally have respect for and whoever wins the job to govern will be no different from the last. The liberals are far from liberal and are just outright conservatives and only for the monied classes. They have displayed their priorities over the past four years by achieving nothing that hasnt been of direct benefit to themselves. They scorn the elderly and young alike. The Labour party well what does that mean, how many of them have ever done a days labour many years ago the labour party base was men that had come from the shop floor and had actually got their hands dirty. Not now, now they all attend university to study politics and are all tarred with the same brush nothing more than a bunch of carpetbaggers. So will we see the end of John and have his replacement the grinning fool who actually thinks he is funny, god help us dont let Costello loose on us. OR will it be the the good ship Labour hope to steer and navigate its way into our hearts with a new RUDD-ER and no doubt more promises to break. It doesnt matter does its going to happen whoever wins will win for themselves not us thats the way its been and thats the way it will stay. I just hate that I have to give up my time to go and vote for these awful people, whichever way it is punishment for not voting or punishment afterwards whoever wins. Its going to be punishment in one form or another. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU. I guess theres one thing we should be happy about. we only got this mumbling jerk John, the Yanks have got George Bush what punishment that is…………….bye
