Profits and over taxing

Everyone knows right now that things are not going to well for the average person worldwide. Average I mean the person/s that go to work and earn  enough money to keep them fed, clothed and rent paid with enough for Petrol/gas for the car.  The governments  say they will take less tax from a pay packet but you can bet your life that increases in everything else will give it back to them.

Oil is being sold in excess of $US100 a barrel as opposed to what it was a year or so ago around $US30 and it all gets sold through OPEC to maintain a standard price. Now we all know that oil companies are ripping us off, they are the controllers of imports and exports etc. Petrol/gas prices alter daily and sometimes more than once in a day, the media tells us the high price of oil and the next day the petrol is more expensive.  So we are to believe that oil purchased on Monday in New York at $US105 is processed and in the petrol stations in a couple of day. Bullshit…whats the truth exactly what price has been paid for the fuel we are using today why is it impossible to reverse revenue to assist the ordinary family man/woman with this burden. Every time the fuel goes up in price some government asshole says they are watching for any abnormality, nothing about the excise its reaping in out of every litre sold. So here in Australia and I would think the USA also, and any other country out of the middle east producers, their oil is being sold through the same OPEC channels and reaping a huge profit on current prices so what stops the governments ploughing those profits back with some of the excise revenue to relieve the burden on Mr Average. Plain fucking greed, we dont count in the eyes of polititians who get their huge allowances for anything they require, the scum that rule us with a smile. Wheres the media? too bothered stirring up stuff about about Heath Ledger and Britney Spears to care about us, too politically biased one way or the other to care about the things that matter to us. One page of real news and the rest advertising and irrelivant crap plus the conveyance for filling our houses with all the leaflets and mags from all the grocery outlets and fast food chains.

Banks…make billions in profits for their shareholders and  directors but the peole who have loans and are battling to pay their mortgages get no consideration at all from them and no relief offered…………… They are the lowest of the low.

Supermarkets pretend to be everyones friend willing to help lower the pressure on families but their prices are a reflection of the help they give…….NONE…………Profiteers thats all they are…………..Shitheads the lot of them……Do you agree?

Bush Fires

Every year all over Australia we have the “Bush Fire Season” its made to sound like its an event to look forward to but every year there are teffible consequences and awful injuries and sometimes loss of life and property. The recent tradgedy involving the trucks that were permitted to travel through fire affected country opens up some interesting discussion, photographs in the media of the stricken trucks and the and the burned out bush makes me ask this question. Why do we have these huge trucks travelling on on piddly little roads that are still no more than camel tracks, there is nothing GREAT about the Eastern Highway its narrow, look at the photos of the burned out trucks and see the revelance to the size of truck to width of road. There is no shortage of space in the bush plenty of room to build aroad where trucks should be able to turn around. With all the bush country thats up there through the wheatbelt and on to the goldfields  the Great Eastern Highway wouldnt qualify as a decent fire break in the area that catastrohpe occured but nobody mentions it and I guess nobody will. Was a very sad day for Western Australia and the short sighted authorities that have no planning ability or forsight. An awful day indeed I hope somebody will learn from the mistakes and make sure it never happens again.
