    There is a budget emergency as there always is after the ALP has been in power.

    However it seems that the majority of the Australian people do not care. They want this, that or whatever. Stuff the deficit ,just lay it on me brother proclaim the immoral scum from the ALP.

    ALP supporters care about nothing but themselves and their giant bellies.

    That Sydney Park view of the Zenix looks familiar. It does have a great view of the City , the Blue Mountains and the Airport I must say

    I hear the 2 top floor Penthouses are quite nice but with strata levies of $3,800 per quarter they’d wanna be. But it does have pretty expensive Lifts, a gym, and a rather large pool with rather large landscaped gardens to maintain.

    Now I’m not really into videos of bearded men in rather awful shirts preaching a 30 minute message.

    What exactly has he got to say ?

    That second video is absolute amateurish crap. I’ve driven those roads frequently in peak hour to and from the airport. Peak hour in Sydney starts at 6:45am and finishes around 9:45 am as all the tidal flows are taken out at 10am.

    I especially note when he goes past Canal Road travelling North after meeting zero traffic the video suddenly cuts out. That’s because he doesn’t wanna show the huge fucking tailback that occurs just after he passes the McDonalds on the right of traffic struggling into Newtown or going right down Sydney Park Road going into the city.

    Just a junk video by an amateur who claims to show the facts but actually shows everything but the facts.

    Total crap !

    The shortlist of 3 consortia selected to tender for the design and construction of the M4 East are:

    Future Connect Joint Venture with Acciona Infrastructure Australia, Obayashi Corporation, McConnell Dowell Constructors (Aust) Pty Ltd and Ghella Pty Ltd

    Lend Lease Bouygues Joint Venture with Lend Lease Engineering Pty Ltd and Bouygues Construction Australia

    TREASURER Joe Hockey today argued his fuel tax increases weren’t unfair to low income earners because they couldn’t afford to own cars anyway …

    … “They say you’ve got to have wealthier people or middle-income people pay more.

    “Well, change to the fuel excise does exactly that; the poorest people either don’t have cars or actually don’t drive very far in many cases. But, they are opposing what is meant to be, according to the Treasury, a progressive tax.” …

    “I am warning the people of Australia that if we do not take action now, we are going to end up paying $3 billion a month in interest alone. Seventy per cent of that goes to people living overseas because they’re the people that the Federal Government is borrowing from.”

    http://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/treasurer-joe-hockey-tells-low-income-households-they-would-not-be-bothered-by-petrol-excise-rises-because-rich-will-pay-them/story-fn84fgcm-1227023274589

    1) Tell that to the Grey Nomads … or the people who don’t have decent public transport … or work odd shifts …

    2) Take action by all means but not at the poor and the sick and the weak … (negative gearing and family trusts are a good start)

    3) If the “fuel excise” targets the middle/upper class then the same argument applies to ALL the other measures aimed at the poor …

    ‘Changes to fuel excise from August 1 will cause the price of a litre of fuel to rise by the rate of inflation every six months.

    ‘Experts say that’s likely to mean a rise of about one cent per litre every year.

    The fuel excise has been locked at 38.1 cents per litre since the Howard coalition government froze automatic indexation in 2001.

    ‘However, this extra excise cost will probably not be as significant as the effect of the predicted rise in global crude oil prices and the likely falls in the value of the Australian dollar … all of which will likely mean sharply higher fuel prices in the months and years ahead.’

    It’s got nothing to do with the highway.

    Walrus as a former tradie you would not want me as transport minister.. Only essential vehicles for mine.. most of the cars I see passing the bus or on the rare occurrence I use a car (fuck you Joe I have a driver Hokey) have one lazy fucktard in then on the way to a parking station complaining about the price of keeping the car on the road and the extortion of the parking accommodation.

    I’d say 50% of the traffic on the road does not need to be there. I dont have any substantive proof of that other than lots of empty cars with empty headed fucktards driving them.

    This road is not going to solve anything especially considering that the knobs building it seem obsessed with getting people out of the city while they build roads to the city..

    Build this road? You right wing pingers seem so ass inflated about public spending on infrastructure, yet you want to build useless shit based on yester year thinking that all evidentiary factual analysis deems it an expensive motorbike ashtray to line the coffers of the fiberal donation club…

    http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/columnists/blackest-day-in-sport-exposed-as-overcooked-stunt/story-e6frg75f-1227023539328

    THE “blackest day” in Australian sport was always an overcooked stunt, designed to provide a distraction for the struggling leadership of Julia Gillard but which turned ugly for the then Labor government. ………….The Labor government made its political wishes clear, wanted the whole process “expedited” and offered financial assistance to ASADA to nail Essendon and get the whole scandal solved before the finals.

    This was all to clean up a political mess Labor created, denied and finally tried to short circuit. In the scheme of things it was a lesser political folly of the Gillard government but typical of the media manipulation, denials and political distraction of the time.

    The working poor don’t live in inner city housing, it tends to be outer suburbia where its cheaper. There is poor public transport servicing those areas so they have to drive or spend hours taking numerous buses and trains to get to work. Just out of interest, I speak to people about their transport to work. My young hairdresser told me that she takes three buses to get to her employment and starts out at about 0500 hrs with about four-five hours daily travel. Talk about the daily grind!

    I have always been annoyed by the parking at hospitals. Nurses have to pay to park, quite a lot to a private firms, just to be close to work and safe. In my workplace it’s not a system where they are debited for each time they park, that would be too reasonable, they have to pay a fortnightly amount whether they use the park or not and they have to pay to ‘keep their place’ even when on holiday. I think that is extortion and private enterprise demanding a guaranteed income. There are many free parking spaces dotted around the hospitals, these are all taken up by paper pushers, admin workers or hospital management, allied health etc. These people usually work 0800 – 1630 every day and they travel alone in a vehicle. I feel they could easily come in by bus or train [usually well accessible to hospitals] but they are all ‘too important’ to have to pay for parking. Nurses get no free parking even when finishing late at night or the middle of the night. Some nurses park in the surrounding streets to save money and there have been attacks on nurses walking to and from work and also not unusual to finish work to find their car stolen, very upsetting after a busy shift! My daughter [nurse] had her handbag stolen by a walk-in pretending to be a visitor [this happens frequently in hospitals, they run through the wards nicking everything they can] So, late at night, she finds she has no bag, no car keys and her credit card had $3,000 debited within 30 mins of the theft. The hospital refuses to be responsible for any recompense of personal items.
    But, the doctors are well looked after, they get free parking at the private car park provided by the hospital, apparently it’s in their contracts!

    they won`t sell you a ticket(fcuking-dumb won`t have ticket-vendors, but have rail-cops) and also said they can take the fine immediately, if you want to pay it, or they fine you `about` triple, if they mail the fine to you,

    I’ve read something like that, seems a completely ridiculous bureaucracy.

    As far as ‘musicals’ go, bluegrass (like sundry other things) I’d never heard of until I heard it here…which in turn inspired me to check this out.

    it sounds very different toiletboss, judging by that passionate review, I’ll have to have a listen.

    GP co-payment and a healthier economy are polar opposites:
    http://www.smh.com.au/comment/gp-copayment-and-a-healthier-economy-are-polar-opposites-20140814-103xrj.html

    …As the government prepares to take its GP co-payment policy to the Senate for approval, it is vital our nation’s lawmakers give genuine consideration to the gravitas of Professor Owler’s outlook. This is not a proposal involving a simple $7 impost on Australians; it’s a scheme that could shake the very foundations of our egalitarian society, which is celebrated internationally as a beacon of light…

    Don’t Give The Parties More Money, Send The Cheats To Jail:

    …A prominent legal academic has blasted calls for state election campaigns to be fully funded by taxpayers, arguing such a system would be open to abuse by the government of the day and that tougher criminal penalties would be a preferable response to NSW’s current corruption crisis…

    …“Until we see the first property developer and the first Member of Parliament behind bars there is not going to be a sufficient deterrent,” she said.

    Looks like in NSW we have a choice between two parties. One that is totally corrupt and one that is just corrupt.

    What i don’t understand is why property developers are banned from making donations but mining companies and Unions are allowed to donate money?

    A year ago there was that horrific situation where an off duty soldier had his throat cut in London, so that’s probably what the monk is thinking could happen here too.
