Karasian tax policy’s like the real thing only different.

I have often wondered about our tax system, jumped onto the tax office website, and gone, shit this is too hard you can just work this out in your head.

As it turns out, this seems to be the same approach our government takes, when they make decisions about taxation, and then leave it up to some dude at the tax office, to slide it in with all the other stuff on their website. Eliminating anything that might be seen as conflicting with the new.

So when it comes to giving tax cuts, it’s even easier. The dude at the tax office, just needs to change a few numbers, and it’s a done deal apparently. Well that’s the way it worked in my head anyway.

Like This

I took notice that the Americans. had given a tax cut to their companies, from some number to another, (numbers are just numbers)and I said to myself, what would our government do.

Then I thought omg, they would just do the same (being the lazy bastards they are).

So I quickly negotiated a new company tax rate in my head, which automatically reduced unemployment, and brought the price of goods down for consumers. Genius!!

I quickly realised, ( being a genius) that consumers Were not as smart as me, so I would have to give them a tax cut as well. Bugger!!

Then I remembered, just last year the government had increased taxes on something or other (happens all the time). So with the drop in unemployment, and the reduction in unemployment benefits, there would be more money to spread around, without, touching the bottom line.

Not only that, I may well get a few gifts from a the wealthy business owner, or two, to actually make this worth my while, personally. No decelerations required In Karasia. Bonus!!

Ok a personal tax cut, modest of course, to go along with my company tax cuts, would work in Karasia. While, totally explaining, how the governments tax cuts were going to work in the real world. Bloody genius again I hear you say.

The dude at the tax office is going to be a bit pissed though. So I might have to give him a bonus, or just transfer him to a better job once he’s finished. Perfect, that will save my pork loins once I’m out of office, and can’t write laws on the run.

So this is how it’s going to work.

The companies, are going to pay less tax, meaning, they are going to hire more people, to produce more stuff, to sell, obviously. Duh!

The people, are going to buy more stuff, because, they all have jobs, and are now getting to pay off their Amex card, a little bit at a time.

Hopefully they are buying electronics, (note: dinner with JB hifi dude) which all have lots of GST.

Then the added bonus.

Consumption of electricity will rise, which provides the government with a lot of GST.

Shouldn’t forget that poles and wire charge it’s a real money spinner too.

So god damn, the money is rolling in, like it has never rolled in before. Woohoo!

It’s a shame that the states sold off their electricity grids, or they wouldn’t be expecting a greater share of the GST, and the government would be able to afford, to give, hard thinking politicians a pay rise. Without the people whinging about it. Bastards!

Might have to sneak that in at Xmas, when their all busy shopping.

All in all, I think, this trickling down tax thingamajig is going pretty well so far. The people should be pretty quiet, It’s going to take weeks for them to join all those dots.

Now to find a way to get the supermarkets to stop raising prices, and screwing with the consumer price index thing.

I know, Just a hint of a royal commission into price gauging. That, should see more, two for one deals popping up. Too expensive to actually do it, so a hint here a hint there, yep that’s gonna work.

Of course inflation is going to be out of control, but only the rich, smart people, look at those numbers, and even they don’t understand, what the hell they are looking at.

Now, I just have to find someone to blame. Incase it all screws up, as it will, Although, I’m gonna be pissed with someone by then, surly, it can just be their fault, Genius!

The Road To Riches

While it seems impossible to achieve a new social structure in this desensitised world, it could be possible with desire and overwhelming power of the majority of the population.

We could undoubtedly as a power force, achieve a new social construct that was not dominated by either corrupt government or big business.

Sounds easy when it’s just a thought in my head and I’m sure it sounds nothing of the sort when it’s being transferred into yours – but let’s say it’s worth reading anyway.

To frame this into a coherent fragment of what it could take to achieve, I shall undoubtedly make it sound more like a cult movement with every sentence, but would like to state right from the beginning that it would require democracy to be alive in its purest form (whatever that Is to you).

It’s a given that nothing in society can currently be achieved without working within the boundaries set by corporate giants and, our so called democratic governments.

Therefore it’s going to take lots of money (everyone needs to send me ten dollars), and a room full of paperwork to even start to develop a new social construct that enables ordinary people – rather than the social elite and the government they forced us to elect – to begin the vast journey ahead.

For those who have the right not to cast a vote, I’m not talking about a system where voting is compulsory.

I’m talking about the limited number of candidates that are paraded before us, as our only choice to rule our lives for the next unlimited number of years (let’s just forget real numbers for now).

Is it really democratic to have a system where two parties control the future forever? I don’t think so!

Of course it’s all dressed up as a grass roots movement; displaying themselves as ordinary, everyday, down to earth citizens who all have a say in the parties ultimate direction (some of them may actually believe that too), and making you believe they are your sort of people.

Well that’s just the start of the bullshit political parties want us to swallow. They will undoubtedly canvas in great detail the issues that will tug on your heart strings, and those that will give you an extra $2.00 in your pay packet.

While conveniently neglecting to tell you about the planned legislation that will further restrict your rights, or cost you an extra $5.00 to pay for their investment in an electricity network that you have been paying for on every increasing electricity bill you receive.

They seem to forget very quickly that the money they are playing with is our money and not theirs. They do less work every year, and take more money for doing it, while people go hungry and start to live on the streets they once dreamed of owning a home on.

I would challenge anyone, to take a good look inside any political party, and find democratic processes that actually work for the majority.

They don’t exist, and the only way you can make them exist is to close your eyes and ignore the back room deals (not that you can see them unless your inside the back room), intimidation, and blackmail working within the parties, to say the least.

As a society we are metaphorically screwed at all levels, especially when it comes to elections, and the influence big business has been able to develop, and maintain over the years to make sure it is as hard as possible to have a working democratic government.

So to even begin to pursue a new democratic social construct, we need to first begin to build a new framework by which to govern and interact with each other, or to not interact with each other – if that’s what you personally desire.

We need a little less personal regulation; we certainly don’t need to be restricted, as much as we currently are.

We need more freedom to be who we really are (that’ll weed out those total jerks), and possibly some basic rules of engagement.

We may even need a judicial system, but we definitely do not need lawyers – unless the judiciary is as corrupt as the one we currently have.

I don’t know how many times I have heard people say they were innocent only to see them locked up, just to find out ten years later they actually were innocent. Oops! Our bad!

We need for corporations and governments to stop hiding the great ideas of our times that reduce the amount of capital expenditure our society is required to waste on products we are just going to waste anyway, like petrol and food (maybe we could waste a little less food and feed the world?).

It should be illegal, for these corporations and governments to hide away scientific discoveries that benefit society

It’s much more important to these greedy, power hungry leeches, and their bottom lines, to make sure we see nothing until the worlds oil supplies have been depleted.

We need all the inventions that would make petroleum products redundant that have been snapped up by big oil companies to find their way out of the closet, and let them minimise the industry that has actively assisted in the destruction of humanity since the start of the industrial revolution (maybe before but let’s just say it started there).

It’s socially backwards that you can invent a revolutionary product or process, only to have your intellectual property snapped up and hidden away, just so you can afford to keep researching.

It makes me wonder how many of our educational institutions are teaching only to sell their students intellectual endeavours (given that they own the IP of anything their students create while studying), just to grab a quick buck?

I know I had a drawing in grade two that went missing, and it was pretty good! What art collector has that stashed away? There was a few new basketballs in grade 3. Interesting!!

All governments should hang their heads in shame and stand aside, so that those of us with a social conscience can get it right for everyone and not just those who promise us a job at the end of our political careers. When did public service become the road to riches or has it always been that way?

Education Money And The New World Order

While the term New World Order has often been used with negative connotations, and used to deliver conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory, it is the positive values and possibilities that really need to be delivered.

A New World Order does not mean loosing all the good that has been created. It in fact means the complete opposite if the idea is developed in a constructive way with all the negative variables removed from society.

Education should not be dependent on a financial structure that holds the individual back simply because a particular school could no afford to fully develop a program due to government funding or social financial disparities.

All schools should and would be able to deliver programs to they fullest potential and engage students and teachers to deliver peak outcomes.

In a New World Order educators would not walk away from their profession simply because they were tied to poor outcomes due to both time and funding restrictions.

Students would not be passed through the education system without a complete understanding of their chosen subjects and tied to an outdated school system dictated by time restrictions.

There is no point and no reason to struggle through a school system only to come out at the other end without the basic ability to read and write, in-fact there is no reason to progress through a system arriving at a destination where you do not have a clear and enjoyable future in a field you completely understand.

The jobs of the future should not be just to struggle to own your own home, or buy your first car, they should not be staffed by people who took the job just because it payed enough to survive, or because they could tolerate it long enough to become financially independent in a stressful society.

They should be a positive experience that you enjoy and derive some personal satisfaction from.

They should be life experiences where you feel proud to be able to help others get enjoyment out of their lives, be it the beginning or the end, because thats just what we should do, especially after spending so many years learning how to do it.

They should be a positive benefit to our society with our social construct removing all the worlds negative energy from a place of dominance within our communities, to a place of non-existence.

The workforce of the future needs to be independent of financial reward as its reason for being and totally dependent on personal satisfaction as its ultimate reward.

Education is a key area of reform to deliver this within a New World Order and with this will come the removal of the “need” for material goods, as everything required should be available to everyone as and when it is needed, without the negative stress and undue pressures placed on an individual to have them.

You may read this and believe this is completely unrealistic, and it may be in todays society.

It’s unrealistic only because, none of us have lived in a society without being told what to do, when to do it, and how much it is going to cost to either do it of have it done.

As a result of this we live in a world where the person who tells us what to do, usually gets the credit for everything we do, and is paid ten times more just because we did it well.

If this is our idea of the perfect society, if the education we receive was not rushed, or poorly delivered because, funding was either not available or was not a priority in the time that you were educated.

Then we need to stop and think. Ask ourselves, could i we have been happier in society, if the system was the best it could be rather than the best it could be as cheaply as it could be.

While the focus here is education, the sub text is everything else but primarily Money, which has lead us to the reduction of everything we should be enjoying within society, to just what we can afford.

A finance driven society is a negative society, money creates most of the crime within our community and is the cause of more unhappiness than it could ever fix.

If we allow governments to continually attempt to be fix social issues with money, we are just continue to play into the hands of the wealthy elite, who strive to keep the majority of the world as slaves, producing more slaves, for a world that is here only to cater for the minority.

When, we have finally as a society finished laying the blame on the poor, who would not, or could not achieve a middle class existence, labelling them as a drain on our society, money will no longer be an issue because we will not be here to enjoy its chaos.

Change is obviously needed, just as it was needed last year and every year since cash was created.

Moving away from a system that has failed us more than once, and will continue to fail, until the planet fails us all, just as we are failing it, would probably be the smartest move society has ever made.

No society should need to be dependent on a financial system designed only to benefit the wealthy. No society in 2018 should still be described as developing, simply by having developing societies in 2018 should be screaming out that we have a broken system which has been broken since conception.

If you care, speak out now. Speak out for your children, your grand children. Speak out for the world that has struggled, just to get us to a point where we are intelligent enough to understand and correct our mistakes before its too late.

Speak out for a New World Order that changes the world for the good of all not just enslaves it even more, as the wealthy elite attempt to control the uncontrollable- reality!

Borders! Who needs them?

In the world as we know it today, we are restricted by poorly constructed imaginary standards that trap us and control our habits and movements.

Borders are one of these constructs that restrict our movement, while giving the falsely constructed premise of ownership and belonging.

In reality this removes our ability to self control, and move freely within lands which have since the beginning of time belonged to all mankind.

Borders allow the elite within society, to create division amongst the populous and divide, through ownership creating a class system, designed to maintain a lower class within society.

The middle classes, are primarily used as control agents, while being given the false hope of advancement, so as to maintain a workflow consistent with providing the top 5% of the worlds population, with enough growth to maintain superiority.

Advancement within the classes is an illusion, to maintain order, with a monetary system, designed to fail, whenever the glass ceiling has been broken, and classes begin to merge.

This social construct has been in place since the first borders were drawn, and ownership was claimed by the social elite, prior to most lands being discovered and their peoples enslaved.

Previously, the knowledge base of mankind was too low to consider a OneWorld social structure and was well on the way to becoming a tribal, feudal system, with borders being enforced by natural landscapes, providing benefit to the stronger societies ultimately leading to the first of many alliances required to survive.

Thus placing society on its original path towards the ultimate downfall and the social constructs of today.

In the New World Order borders will disappear with the freedom of movement restored and the restoration of nature through the complete sharing of natural and man made resources producing less waste, delivering the planet with a long needed respite from mans greed.

Society, has for many years, been at the point where we had the knowledge and the ability to exploit our planet for good, without exploiting each other, creating equality and dismissing the concepts of sex and race.

The de-establishment of wealth and privilege one key factor in creating a new world order where we can all live in peace and begin to develop the understanding of shared goals.

It is to our detriment, that in the current social climate and construct, that those who would believe they stand to loose the most from a one world system, obscure its benefits and true meaning, with the false promises of a better life under the current restrictive system, that will eventually cause the destruction of everything we have grown to consider positive about ourselves.

If a One World system is to ever be developed, it is up-to the majority to believe freedom and peace are not only possible, but the most desirable outcome for the future of us all.

Can the world change direction?

The concept of good and evil are archaic principles used in society over thousands of years to provide a standard of behaviour.

Good and evil, good and bad, right and wrong are all the same construct. The construct changes with the social context.

Religion introduced the concept of good and evil while society adopted good and bad removing the religious element for a much softer and broader use.

Right and wrong a stronger social legalised version creates a variation that removes itself from the religious connotations, a virtual separation of church snd state.

Over the years the use of all three have remained strong within their respective areas with lines becoming blurred as religion attempts to reassert itself into society in an attempt to establish greater control. This can be seen in all religions but, strongest within the catholic and radical muslin sects.

In the New World Order only right and wrong is important while religion pales into the background of society as people begin to redefine their definition of God as one within themselves, and the rule of law is administered in a much more simplistic fashion as society changes with the abolition of wealth and the need for self glorification through the creation of wealth by exploitation of others.

Fond Memories Of The Crazy Days

In Australia,we follow both British and U.S systems and traditions, and a few we have created all by ourselves.

Of course,we make the necessary changes so that they become what we consider workable within our society. This is well highlighted if you examine the history of our school system(s).

Our schools originally based on the British school system, have American influences that have crept in to create a mix of the two, producing the N.S.W system the QLD system etc etc etc.

An exception to this of course are private schools; which primarily held onto their British identity and traditions much longer than the public system and, to some degree still do, as far as the very generous government grants they now receive will allow.

As you would expect we pay more out of pocket expenses for our child to attend a public school than we did in the past.

For example,all I was sent to school with was a pencil case, a few exercise books and my lunch in a brown paper bag.

The biggest cost each year (that I can remember) was a new pair of shoes and a couple of uniforms along with the ugliest school bag ever, you know the bags that were real bags? The mini suit case people will now pay a fortune for as decorator items.

They say that ones mans rubbish is another mans treasure. Well, it also holds true for time as one decades junk is another decades gold. How many times have you heard, if only I knew then what I know now? And who has tried to impart that knowledge onto their children only to find their “junk” as trashed as yours was.

But I digress, my point was, under our school system when I was a child the government would supply, pencils; lead and coloured, rulers, text books (all of them) dictionaries etc etc.

The public service was a different animal back then too, and they never really got the hang of making sure supply controls were adequate; so many pencils were being used that they could have assumed some great works of literature were being scribed by half the children in the country.

There was no end to the supply; I know this because I was just one actively testing this by constantly requesting more and more. I’m sure that if you looked in my bedroom as a child I could have supplied a small school with pencils for at least a year or two.

This was not the only thing that amazed me, for every pencil had Commonwealth of Australia printed on it in gold lettering. Really? Was this necessary, cost effective, and, was their an inspector somewhere that was out checking for pens and pencils belonging to the government.

Did you notice I mentioned pens? Yep they were supplied as well just not to primary school kids but high school students and public servants were rolling in them.In fact I don’t think you could walk into the home of a public servant and not leave without a free pen when you were a kid in Canberra.

I can’t even imagine how much stationary costs were allocated in the federal budget each year however, It would have been enough to keep a number of companies alive and possibly became the foreign aid budget once the buy ya bloody own system was introduced, to claw back a budget deficit without raising taxes; which would have been much more unpopular. Although, there is always the possibility it was just revenge during a time when unions were at their strongest and demanding and getting greater pay rises. Now the unions are much weaker and it seems pay rises come when our biggest companies want us to pay more for everything.

The government continues to get its revenge on the generation of stationary thieves by making sure the book list is not only bigger each year, but also requires more exotic and specific items, apparently our children now need a scientific calculator and iPads in primary school!!

What was wrong with number blocks? I say bring back the abacus, and the sentence maker.

I must admit however I spent most of my time in maths asking why don’t they just teach us to use a calculator, which just goes to show I was way ahead of my time or possibly that the education department of today have only just caught up with the ideas of a primary school child of the 70’s. That one I will leave up to you to decide.

Needless to say under the now normal system my child has a collection of pencils, pens, calculators,etc that fills a large box, this does not include the old txt books and partially used exercise books that in my opinion were a just incase we can fit them completely into the curriculum items.

The fact is most of the work these days is done on work sheets downloaded while drinking a glass of red the night before and printed on the multiple reams of paper also purchased by us the parents.

I wonder just what the government does pay for, teachers wages that are obviously too low to keep the good teachers teaching, and maybe the electricity, and the odd new building and library book. However, I then have to wonder what the voluntary contribution and other fees are for? Is the government actually paying for anything other than the staff?

“The revolution” I now understand the education revolution, it’s a revolution against the people and the school system itself and it never started in the 21st century it just continued.

All it needed in the 21st century was new camouflage to convince the public they could continue to believe a quality education available to all; and they can, but what do we now call quality? Because I believe that has changed dramatically over the years.

I certainly hope that a move to create a national curriculum will be a move we can all be happy with. It will be interesting to see if it levels the playing field when funding individual schools, and allows teachers the freedom and ability to change locations and remain in an education system they are well trained for.

Honestly, the education system I went through was much better than is currently being delivered in the so called “age of technology”. And I believe in free pencils, pens and exercise books. I believe the gestetner machine was great at producing worksheets that were created with love and attention to detail, they smelt great and got me out of class on more than one occasion to turn the handle for the teacher.

I think it’s true to say that teachers enjoyed teaching much more in the past than they do today. I believe we have lost so much that was good in trying to prove that the next generation could run the system better, we need to admit they couldn’t, and take a few steps back.We need to get the older teachers back into the system that they created and ran so well for so many years.

What I believe is that we have created a situation, where we can never expect to go back to a place & time I thrived in. A place that needed the corruption fixed not the system. A place where I felt part of the future and not just a vision of the past.

Once They Were Good!

When does a child stop being that innocent little angel we love and adore so much?

Honestly I believe that once they have the ability to move independent of the parent that innocents heads for the door and keeps going until one day it walks out and says ” that’s enough, this ones the spawn of the devil” going down.

Ofcourse we will always love our children, and we will want as hard as we can to believe in their innocence. But does it wain at any time?

Could it be maybe the first time they bite another child to get that doll they wanted to play with quicker than it would otherwise have been offered? Or is that one of those times when we would say they have never bitten before maybe the other child did something to provoke them, yep that’s it, the innocents is still intact, and I’m a perfect parent, because Ofcourse everything my child does in life reflects my parenting skills and not the child itself or society right?

Ok so we still have the assumed perfect child only bitten once, phew, and after I apply my perfect parenting skills and explain how you should never bite, that will never happen again.

Woo hoo it’s a new day and everything other than my bank balance is perfect, my child is still an innocent little angel, and someone else has the devils spawn to deal with, until, you drop them off at day care and for god sake they are smiling, is that normal? Shouldn’t they be yelling and screaming that they want to stay with me?

However, they are so sweet, they give you a kiss and a cuddle and immediately run off to play with the other children including the devils spawn that made them bite the day before, who by the way has deliberately taken your child’s favourite doll again!!!

That afternoon you return, hoping and praying that they have had a good day as you walk through all the security gates in place to keep your little angel safe from harm, when unexpectedly the director starts to approach you, with a look on her face that would shatter anyone’s hopes and dreams of ever being able to return, and in the back of you mind your thinking “oh crap what now” while maintaining a perfect smile, ready to greet her, while willing something good to come out of her mouth.

As it turns out, and this is true by the way, your child has completely lost their moral compass by the age of 2 and has not only been to the staff room and eaten the directors lunch, but they have also been through her hand bag and taken anything that might have looked like a credit card just like daddy has.

Again you convince yourself that your child is still a little angel, how could they know that the staff room was not a place for them to be, and that other peoples property be it lunch or credit cards are not to be touched? The simple fact is, you just haven’t had that talk with them yet, it’s your responsibility as their parent to make sure they develop that moral compass, right?

I mean the number of times I have been with my child going through someone’s handbag taking credit cards just like their daddy’s was ummm zero, but that’s not the point, they have no way to know at the age of two.

If the director had been doing her job they would never have been able to be away from the group long enough to eat and steal/explore in a room that should have been locked. So now you have someone else to blame for your child being evil, and you can still get to sleep at night.

Many days and many incidents (about two weeks) and finally you are asked to remove your child, ” we just can’t cope with them, and they made one of or workers cry” (true story) and now you begin to wonder, what the hell is my child thinking, their not that bad at home, am I really a bad parent?

The next week you have them enrolled in a new centre, and all is good?? No one is complaining, no workers are crying, and everyone is telling you how perfect your child is.

Nah,I’ve picked up a look alike surly. And so it continues, with your little angel back with only the odd complaint as you would expect with any child, and you know that you are a good parent, until…..PRIMARY SCHOOL…

Omg how things change when the one on one has to be shared with twice as many children,
Forget the little angel, be prepared for every other parents lessons to be unleashed through their children as well as your own, and watch what comes out at the end of that. No matter how hard you try there are just some things that you can’t reverse once your child has been exposed, and if you do succeed to convince your child not to be like the others, you have just set them up to be bullied for the remainder of primary school.

It’s then that you realise that innocence is nothing more than an indicator of learnt behaviour and by the end of primary school, the only thing you can hope they haven’t explored is sex, but deep down you know that wether they have or haven’t, high school is just around the corner, and for some people, it may well be time to move so that you can get them into a school with a decent reputation. And so it was, but has it made any difference?

I don’t think so, because now it’s all big kids, and those behaviour issues that your little innocent angel only displayed at school for the most part, have come home and are hiding somewhere in the bedroom where they spend a great deal of time after telling you that the rapid clicking of the computer mouse was part or their maths homework and not them playing a game.

And so it continues, the struggle between good and evil, and the hope that at the end you will have beaten the devil and delivered them from evil for thyn is the parent (the good parent) forever and ever AMEN.

What The…..

Is it just me or is everyone in Australia being taken for a ride by the supermarkets?

They are so busy trying to build their corporate empires I don’t even think they know what their doing to the average family anymore.

Seriously, you can’t buy anything anymore at a reasonable price unless it’s been imported from China and the company selling it is owned by one of the major supermarkets.

Food,hardware,fuel,insurance,alcohol,stationery. Is there anything left? Have I missed anything out in my rant on the oligopoly of the century.

Seriously, I always thought that the government had the ability to make sure that competition was the corner stone of what we call democracy, but it seems I was wrong. The ACCC is still sitting there waiting to get past the all we can really do is threaten to slap you on the wrist. And no one is doing anything to stop the manipulation of the fuel market.

I would truly like to know who is paying who, for that set up to exist.

The fuel companies must be laughing all the way to the bank, well someone is and we seem to be paying for it.

What really makes me laugh while shaking my head is when I take a trip down the coast out of what we call our capital city, that is rated as a regional area, only to find that it cost the fuel companies less to get fuel to there while we pay 20 cents a litre more.

Ok so we now have Aldi, and they say that their plan is to continue to expand bringing greater competition to the market place, and that’s great however I have never been able to do a complete shop at an Aldi store.

Then I go to one of the majors picking up all the items not available at Aldi only to find that what I thought I had just saved money on, was cheaper there. Come on give us a break you sons of britches, level the playing field and stop making us walk uphill in the sun just to buy water.

We can’t forget ” bulk me up” Costco, our other American saviour?

Aside from the 60.00 to get through the door and go through a checkout, it looks great and is if your a family with 4 or more ankle biters so buying in bulk is worth it. Don’t even get me started on the pizza that won’t fit into a standard sized oven.

The sad reality is, most of us are stuck with Coles or Woolworths for the majority of the day to day items we need, unless we buy online and can deal with the fact that everything is imported from overseas and while most have the same name and design as our well known favourite products, they are not the same and in most cases have a flavour different to that which we are used to, there is also a ? Mark over the safety of some products as the conditions in which they are produced are not and will never be to the high standards we expect our manufactures to operate.

This along with the lower wages paid in some countries is why these products are cheaper, but not as cheap as they should be!!! Even woolworths and Coles have increased their lines imported into the country, but only those products they need to compete with from Aldi and Cosco would see a major reduction from the product now thrown away in Australia or just not grown anymore because farmers can’t compete, and processors have cut their quota because they can’t sell as much Australian product.

So what is the answer? We have tried food co-op’s but they just don’t make it as easy as we need it to be it our fast paced, two parent working families. I’m not saying they don’t still play a part in solving the problem, but I think it’s an option for a very small minority.

Do we wait for the government to realise that people just can’t afford to live anymore, and more and more are either going hungry or relying on charity’s like foodbank just to be able to have the basics?

The reality is, you need a combination of many solutions to survive, which completes the vicious circle, because it costs you more in fuel and time if you have either to do what you need to do and then you use that oh so generous discount fuel voucher which will save you 2-3.00 on a full tank of fuel.

I can see that a wall is coming, were something big is going to have to happen to relieve the pressure on us all, but what will it be and who is going to suffer the most before it ever gets any better?

In The Beginning…

In the beginning there was nothing. Or was there?
Of course if you believe god is great and controls everything, but has still given man
Or woman, the ability of free will, then it’s correct there was nothing.

The real question is why didn’t God stop for a minute and fix all that he had left broken?
As you may have assumed I don’t believe in a single God, and for those that do, that’s fine
whatever gives you a good nights sleep and as long as you don’t try to make out I’m a bad person because I don’t believe what you do, then I’m all for you having the right to believe.

One thing that you should not assume, is that I know nothing about your religion, I believe that the bible is and will always be one of the greatest works of fiction ever written. I don’t say that none of the people in it never existed, but. What I do say is that the stories are just that, stories passed down from generation to generation, written by one person only to be modified by another.

In this day and age we should understand that the people that existed 2000 years ago are nothing like we are for the most part. Their lives were dictated by superstition and fear of the unknown, so when something they could not explain occurred, they never had the tools or the mental capacity to reason it out to a reasonable conclusion.

In fact, even I can only make assumptions based on what I know about history, what has Been written by other people, people I didn’t know. What I do know for a fact is that in ancient times the world was not a democracy and religion was at war with both those that ruled and themselves. So much that was written by different sects within the church were destroyed and those who wrote it murdered in the name of god.

So what is the truth? Did the church destroy that which cast doubt on some areas of belief? Or was religion hijacked by “political parties” or was it just simply a way for the powerful to hold onto power. Who is controlling who,what and where?
