Hi, to All
I have to make a correction to my first post.
I wrote: “I’m sick of them allowing multi-nationals to get away with paying their fair share of taxes.”
This should read: “I’m sick of them allowing multi-nationals to get away with NOT paying their fair share of taxes.”
Happenings on the Hill.
Sloppy Joe welcomed a “pleasing set of numbers” from the National Accounts figures (the Australian economy grew 0.5% in the June quarter), released on Wednesday the 3rd of September 2014.
He conveniently failed to mention that more than all of the growth was accounted for by including in the statistics a 0.9% jump in the stock of unsold goods.
So in effect, if those goods are not going to be sold, we are really having a 0.4% of negative growth! I hope, nobody mentioned this small detail to him on Wednesday! He looks feral in the picture.
Of course, that perennial jokester “I’ll do you, I’ll do you slowly” Paul K came out of the woodwork like an angry Borer and savaged the government’s “connivance with PUP to spike superannuation at 9.5 per cent”.
The Mining Magnolia, Palmer was last seen dancing in the Senators car-park, and rightly so.
He just helped to get rid of the mining tax with the double whammy of penalising the very people who carry his huge frame on their backs.
Mad Monk and the Mining Magnolia then graciously argued “that working people are better off with more cash in their hand today than savings for tomorrow”.
Of course, just in case the voters didn’t get it, the Mad Monk had to go one step further and say, that ” as far as I am concerned, for the next 10 years that money should stay in the pockets of the workers of Australia”!
That statement even woke up Blinky Bill Shorty!
If you think about it though, there is a method in the Mad Monk’s madness!
The extra money is now tacked onto your wage/salary and gets taxed at the highest rate! More money for Sloppy Joe! Some of us will even go onto a higher tax bracket and go backwards. So much for the money staying in the pockets of workers!
How astute of this government!
They are complaining about having an unfunded liability for old age pensions, then proceed to kneecap the very same process that is going to reduce that liability!
Good on you Sloppy Joe, Mad Monk, Stormin Corman and the rest of you nitwits!
Of course, to divert from all of the attention, The Mad Monk is distributing our soldiers all around the Globe with the help of Dagger Eyes Bishop.
Farewell from Cretin Hill for now!
