Honey, we stuffed the Economy.

May 17, 2017

site_197_Polish_660987

There’s an almost endless list of examples you can point to as evidence of the Coalition’s abject incompetence since claiming the adults were in back in charge, however none will come close to slapping the banks with a debt levy.

While on the surface, it may seem like a “good thing” given that so many of us have a “hate-hate” relationship with the Big Four and their cartel-like behaviour in shifting interest rates to whatever flight or fancy takes their whim, however the stark reality is that, as past behaviour attests, they’ll simply shift the costs of the bank levy onto the consumer – you and I.

So expect interest rates to rise in direct correlation to the financial impost they will incur as the bank levy invariably passes through the Senate.

And this will simply send the economy into a downward spiral. Households will be forced to cut back on retail spending, which will see the economy contract. This will spur business owners into further pleas for more wage cuts sorry, I mean “workplace flexibility” (in addition to the recent penalty rates cuts), which will curtail retail spending further when those employees can no longer afford life’s basic necessities.

Recent stats show that 1 in 5 households are already in mortgage stress. So there’s going to be carnage when interest rates inevitably head northwards.

The Coalition squibbed the opportunity to do anything about housing affordability in the recent budget. Now they’ve gone and done the unthinkable – they’ve actually pulled the trigger on the very thing that’s going to propel interest rates higher.

But of course, if you own your own harbourside mansion at Point Piper debt-free, then you’ll be completely unaffected, while the banks continue to reap billion dollar profits and are set to receive a multi-billion dollar handout for their trouble.

Perhaps that was the idea all along.

    Insightful take, sreb …

    But the ephelant* in the kitchen is that 96% of pollies own negatively geared property! (Not including their wives, partners and concubines) …

    The Bank Levy was just another cynical political cheat! To avoid a Royal Commission!

    You can’t have it both ways … either they are the better economic managers than anybody and KNEW the consequences of their decision …

    … OR they’re just a bunch of INCOMPETENT Dickwits©! Who need to find a real job – preferably in the Cayman Islands!

    Choose!

    And to flog the uni students again is just plain stupid – do the LNP want uni students to vote ALP for the rest of their lives? Dumb!

    Do the LNP want the country to deteriorate even further economically? Morons

    Do the LNP expect BIG Business and Banks to prop up society? Ignoramous

    Do the LNP expect that Revenue will just appear by employing 457 Visas? Stupid is …

    Dumb & Dumber!

    This bank levy sound like something the ALP would do. Seems like socialists have won. Sucking money from people through taxation means people have less money to spend and a person spending money will create more jobs than a govt spending the same amount of money

    Except of course, that’s patently wrong, because, they didn’t.

    They taxed where the ones paying it would pay it, not the worker.

    I did hear they will pass it through, just so it will be clear that the libs are doing what they always do, loading the public up with Government debt

    Uni students pay
    mortgage holders pay
    Internet connections pay (for malwares bastardy)
    And every worker pays for an NDIS that was already paid for.

    It isLabor that loads up govt debt. By the way we are doomed. We need spending cuts not tax increases. It looks like the Coalition has given up and proposed a budget the Senate may pass. The current forecast is for a surplus in several years time. I will believe it when i see it.

    But it shows how great Howard/Costello were. They were handed a totally trashed budget from Keating and produced a surplus budget within 12 months with unemployment at 7-8% and economic conditions similar to when Labor were running deficit budgets

    Bernie Sanders supporters are suing on behalf of a potentially immense class of donors and party members, and claim that the DNC charter requires the chairman to “exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the presidential candidates and campaigns.”

    But which is the real position of the Democratic Party? Should we buy their public rhetoric that they are establishing a fair process to include everyone and prevent abuses? Or should we believe what they say under penalty of perjury, that their rules are non-binding and party officials are always free to go back to business as usual?

    Democrats use them to wriggle out of paying staff the way the party insists other employers should pay theirs. From one side of its mouth the party talks like a predatory, pin-striped employer, and from the other, it denounces businesses and Republicans if they object to their hypocritical version of “economic justice.”

    As he continues to lift in the polls, Bill Shorten’s going to start promising us he won’t restart the boats, but being soft on immigration is in Labor’s DNA. ………Kevin from Queensland got in and thought he could get away with dismantling the Coalition’s tough border protection policies to win friends in inner-city latte land but the people-smugglers had other ideas. Almost immediately their trade started up again and as I watched them from opposition, Labor was utterly powerless to stop it. The Rudd-Gillard-Rudd record of chaos must not be forgotten: 800 boats, 50,000 illegal arrivals, 17 new detention centres, 8000 children in detention and 1200 deaths at sea (that we know about).

    “That was then, this is now,” Bill Shorten will say.

    Don’t be fooled.

    Some of you might look at Chris Bowen and see a man trying hard to be a credible shadow treasurer but I see the man whose record as immigration minister should disqualify him from any future office. Under Julia Gillard, 398 boats and 24,447 people arrived on Mr Bowen’s watch; the worst record of any immigration minister in Australian history. Hapless, reckless and completely inept; is it any wonder people are worried what he would do to the economy if this was his previous ministerial effort?

    A new analysis of the combined impact of the Turnbull government’s budget measures suggests women earning below-average wages could be hit with effective marginal tax rates of 100%.

    A study of budget initiatives by the National Foundation for Australian Women, to be released on Monday, says a combination of an increase in the Medicare levy, the freezing of family tax benefit rates and earlier repayment requirements for student loans “are particularly harsh for women”.

    The study notes the proposed increase in the Medicare levy will affect women on incomes greater than $21,644 and, for women who are eligible to receive family tax benefit part A, the rates are frozen for two years.

    “Those who pay childcare fees will continue to face high effective marginal tax rates,” the report says. “University graduates will start repaying loans when they reach income levels of $42,000 per year.

    “These changes hit those on earning well below the average wage and are particularly harsh for women.

    It is looking like banks are going to be the big winners from the bank levy?

    The pass on the levy to consumers (taxpayers). So it costs them nothing.

    Yet they claim that as a tax deduction. Which means, they make that money, paid for, AGAIN, by the taxpayer

    So, the taxpayer is basically paying this levy twice, for no change to the budget bottom line, and a feathering of the banks nest?

    WTF!!

    Qandaland/MIKHAIL ZYGAR,,,,,You know, I can say that people… all the people are afraid of having no alternative, that they have no… They cannot participate and they cannot affect… influence their future. I think that’s the problem, not only for Russia. That’s the problem for a lot of countries in the world. And… When I was speaking about Russian propaganda, I can tell that it has changed a lot during the last few years.

    And the current main message of Russian propaganda is not that we are the best and that… let’s say, America, is our enemy. No! The new message is that we’re all the same. We’re… They are the same dirty bastards as we are. They are as corrupted, all the elections in the world are fraud. All the policemen are brutally killing innocent people.

    All the politicians are corrupted; look at the Panama Papers. Democracy does not exist. All the liberal values, that’s all bullshit. That does not exist. And I think a lot of people in Russia really believe that that’s true. There is no point in looking for any alternative. No other… There is no alternative. No other future. And I’m afraid not only Russians believe in that. When we see… Trump triumph in America that’s probably… probably that means that a lot of people in the United States do not believe in that democracy, in that liberal values.

    When a lot of people in Europe are voting for extremists, they are not… They’re doing that not because of Putin has brainwashed them. No! Because they do not believe in progress. There is no progress in which we used to believe in for decades. Nothing is… If nothing is better in the way it should be, it means the model is wrong.

    We have political leaders around the world condemning the attack, yet complete and utter silence from the Muslim world.

    Where are all the Muslim countries leaders condemning the attack, where are all the Mufti’s condemning the attack. Where is the call to attack this extremism at the source, the extreme leaders preaching division and hatred.

    I also agree that we now have to have an honest conversation about this.

    The entire muslim community will suffer more for the actions of a few, for simply not speaking out themselves and that is their choice not the terrorists choice. If they choose to remain silent then they deserve the ramifications of their own inaction and condemnation.

    Disgusting!!!!

    The online editor of conservative publication Quadrant has said it would have been preferable for the Manchester bomb to be exploded in the ABC’s Q&A studios on Monday night, blowing up host Tony Jones and the panellists.

    “This morning, mere hours after Jones’ guests pocketed their ABC taxi vouchers and repaired to hotel rooms paid for with taxpayer dollars processed through the Sydney writers’ festival, mere children were torn to pieces on the other side of the world,” Roger Franklin wrote in a piece published online on Monday.

    “Life isn’t fair and death less so. If there had been a shred of justice that blast would have detonated in an Ultimo TV studio. Unlike those young girls in Manchester, their lives snuffed out before they could begin, none of the panel’s likely casualties would have represented the slightest reduction in humanity’s intelligence, decency, empathy or honesty.”

    The ABC has called the article “a new low in Australian public debate” and demanded an apology and the removal of the article from the Quadrant website. In a strongly worded letter to the editor of Quadrant, the ABC managing director, Michelle Guthrie, said ABC staff had to be reassured of their safety and safety experts had to be called in to assess if there had been any damage to security from the inflammatory words.

    Turnbull’s “Snowy 2.0” revealed to be double the cost, and years late.

    Pauline Hanson asked today if cows are alive when they’re slaughtered under halal certification.

    How much do taxpayers waste on this silly bitch?

    Absofuckinglutely astounding!

    The ignorance is – dare I say it – STUNNING!

    Oh shane, the only thing Jones proves is the gay community `does` have a bad example and should nail the closet door shut; and the only thing kochieSam proves is how sucky my abc breakfast is.

    When do you think we will here them all squealing about warcriminals needing to go to the gulag/noose for mass murder and destruction of iraq, with spillover into syria/others based on total lies? You won`t. You won`t even see them learn anything. Instead you will see FakeNews continue to peddle/drown-out fact/truth for the elite. Mh17, seth-rich, dnc-fraud, manning, wikileaks, snowden, sweden, assange, all contain info being avoided/distorted by braying FakeNews media.

    Mikhail (above) was probably too `intelectual` for our uni-degree holders here; but l think his explainer also transcends just politics; you could swap a lot of other topics into his quote and would be pretty acurate too.

    How funny …

    An Aboriginal Elder fell into the pool of reflection and BARNABY Juice saved him … LOL!

    I know I shouldn’t but Barnabas? LOL!

    Best wishes to the Elder of course …

    Do you mean here – as in TGT? Or here – as in Australia?

    BTW I think you meant “intellectual” … undergrads know that … 🙂

    And another thing … … all contain info being avoided/distorted by braying FakeNews media.

    As opposed to your comment above?

    Just sayin’ …

    Kind of proves my/mikhail`s point, folks are `fatigued` by the `noise`, folks then choose to avoid the many topics and concern themselves with `spleling` and `granma`.

    as,,,,in TGT? Or here; as in Australia?,,,,

    Shane, by the standard `you` place on moosies then; every gay needs to apologize profusely publicly for every vile thing jones says; and every bananalander needs to apologize profusely publicly for every brainfart pauline utters.

    Things are `not` as they (seem) get reported.

    ++++

    FakeNews,,,,not speaking out themselves and that is their choice not the terrorists choice. If they choose to remain silent then,,,,

    FakeNews,,,,Sadly I have to agree with Alan Jones today. I have not heard or seen of 1 single Muslim leader condemning yesterdays,,,,

    FakeNews,,,,speaking to Kochie or Sam. How many have taken the challenge ?

    This I(s) not a case of poorly served at all, this is a case of not taking up a challenge that would calm a lot of very angry people,,,,

    ++++

    realnews,,,,bbc are reporting manchester bomber was dobed-in to plod on two seperate occasions by two seperate (muslim?) friends/family five years ago (according to an anon `community-worker` that told bbc),,,,

    Drain

    Talking about spelling and grammar.

    Why so many unnecessary punctuation marks in your comments, can you not simply comment using correct punctuation rather than hundreds of them. It would save you hours of keystrokes and my eyes.

    As for your comments relating to gays apologising for everything Jones or Hanson says, what a pathetically poor attempt at wedging someone. Jones has not killed people. Hanson has not killed people. If you cannot interpret the difference then you have far less intelligence than your over punctuated comments allude to.

    So my opinions and observations are now Fake News. Keep that up and I will simply scroll past your own comments.

    What Quran quote are your twitter links referring to that they claim was refused to be revealed? Nothing was refused to being revealed in the interview. I watched it and was very impressed by Imam Tawhidi.

    Shane, first-off, sorry l offended you with my `lazy` short-style quote label.

    The full quote-label should be; Shane-Re-Echoing-FakeNews

    Yes, yes, l was well aware you were only `re-echoing` the same tired, lazy `narrative` that fakenews trots out with after each and every `misery` event; a narrative that is total bullshit by the way; and bbc has shown the start of that narrative is crumbling.

    Sadly, the manchester narrative is rapidly mimicing the lint-cafe narrative; oops, we(govt) were warned about the guy or should have known, but we were too busy making budget savings.

  137. May 25, 2017 4:45 pm

    The new-york narrative mimics the boltsville `auto-tewwa` narrative too shane.

    Chalabi,,,,there was an incident in New York, just before…just before I left to come here in which a man ran over some pedestrians in Times Square and the media very quickly lost interest basically because his name wasn`t Mohammed, effectively,,,,

    (this has mikhail (above) too, which l noticed l forgot)

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
