WE ARE PUSHING TONY
I AM PULLING JOE
I THINK WE GOT IT HALF RIGHT?
COALITION REPEATS OLD MANTA
BEREFT OF NEW IDEAS
JOE Hockey says Labor can't afford to fund its Gonski reforms or the national disability insurance scheme, following news of a $12 billion write-down in revenue forecasts to be detailed by Julia Gillard today.
Come on Joe every commentator knew approximately what the figure would be, it's no shock, your looking for an excuse to axe the two best policies the Australian public has been offered for years.
Conservative in nature conservative in ideas, in other words, don't fix it until its utterly broken, wow, that's forward conservative thinking. Education,don't touch it until it's dead and the Disability insurance, which is crying out for action, what do, you do scrap it!
The opposition treasury spokesman said the government was failing to address structural problems in the budget while electing to keep spending as if the money was still rolling in.
(Excuse me there is still money coming in, unless of course you don't pay tax?
“The problem is that in the one breath the Prime Minister says she hasn't got enough revenue coming in, and in the other breath, she's saying she wants to spend more money, much more money, in areas like disability care and education and so on,” he said.(Education and Disability, how wasteful?)
Compared to most countries in the world our deficits are negligible, why over react, steady as she goes that's the only reaction required.
Joe your party just doesn't know how to be inventive, that's why your only invention is the GST(mind you even that wasn't your original idea)
The problem is that this expenditure is not sustainable over the longer term if the government has falling revenue, so, what's wrong with these policies put forward by the government, nothing, in fact they are investments in Australia's future, because without action being taken we will fall behind the rest of the world.

We're only 16 We're good at make up though!
Club policy on identification in the A.C.T.
Is a step to far!Recently friends took an overseas visitor to a Canberra club, now the visitor was in their 50's. The person at the reception desk asked to see identification, a drivers license or some other form of identification.
Now the visitor as it happens does not drive and did not have a passport with them, (mind you the person wasn't sure a passport would be good enough) the person at the desk refused the visitor entry to the club, even though the visitor was accompanied by a club member who could vouch for them.
The club has a policy dictated by law,SO THEY SAY that they must see proof of identity for age, REALLY, no discretion at all!
If the proof of identity I am told is for the purposes of proof of age, why when someone is middle aged should they require proof at all.
Now I know that now most clubs have machines to swipe your license, but surely they have enough discretion or common sense to enable them to bypass this system.
Do they really think that teenagers will masquerade as middle aged just to get a drink, what a load of rubbish!
FIX IT, THIS IS STUPID
Hospitals in the A.C.T. are refusing to give information over the phone to loved ones about relatives who are admitted, why, in case Radio Jocks are doing a 'Royal',yes its true I have been told it is hospital policy.
A.C.T. Hospitals have gone banana's, after the episode in England with the Royal's they have made a policy of not giving out information about anyone over the phone.
So if your husband, son or daughter is in an accident and you are told they have been taken to hospital you now have to go to the hospital. I assume that you have to have to show appropriate identification also.
Should you make a phone call and offer verbal identification, or personal details about who you are, you will be told that this is not adequate and no matter what you tell them you will not be believed, why because you could be anybody.
Yes this is true, I'm not making it up, should you be elderly, a relative or someone who does not have transport you will be left in the dark about your loved one.
WHAT A DRACONIAN POLICY, WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT ROYALTY
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT LOVED ONES WHO WE CARE ABOUT THIER OWN.
ALL YOU ARE DOING IS HURTING PEOPLE WHO CARE
Why are they doing this, because a couple of DJ's rang a hospital in England, what a load of rubbish.
SO NOW PEOPLE IN CANBERRA ARE BEING DENIED INFORMATION BECAUSE OF A STUPID PRANK BY DJ's
WOW... ABBOTT SAYS 'NO' AGAIN
IS THIS NEWS?

THE NEW AGE
"AGED CARE SYSTEM"
Anonymous: with my edits
Wheel chairs etc would be provided and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose, they would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free.
On request, private, secure rooms would be provided for all.
An exercise outdoor yard, with gardens, each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
Now this would be a big step up from the senior aged care nursing establishments that presently exist.
THINK ABOUT IT, IT MAKES SENSE, DOESN'T IT!
Who's laughing now

This "Thatcher" became all powerful and thence forth was known as the "Divine One" and she gathered many Thatcherites(believers) to her cause.
Thatcher changed the name of the planet that was once known as England to a new name one that better reflected her wishes, she changed its name to Englondonia.(the name Londengland was also considered)
"London" where the Divine One called "Thatcher" lived with her diciples was only a small area of the planet, however the Divine One decreed that the planet was to be divided into two sections one called North and the other London.
Now this was not a large planet, there was no geological formations that divided the two halves, yet the "Divine One" decreed that the smaller London part of the planet should have bestowed upon it all the riches of the whole planet.
The inhabitants of the North didn't like the arbitrary division of wealth in this way and rebelled.
The Divine One because of her supreme intellect brought the forces of righteousness called the police down upon the North.
The wrath of Thatcher was brought down upon them, and so, they were defeated mightily, they never really recovered from this terrible defeat.
As time came to pass the Divine One was dethroned, even her disciples rebelled against her and cast her out to the wilderness.
Once again the planet regained its proper name ENGLAND.
In the year 2013 the Divine One, (whom we now know is not immortal) was taken by a mere common stroke, one that other mere mortals die of, so even though we have been taught from childhood that she was immortal it was finally proved wrong.
There are still some Thatcherites in England and some have even achieved high office, however it is doubtful if they will ever follow the teachings of the Divine One blindly, for they have seen that even being divine does not mean you will always win.
News Flash: 2013
Beware it is rumoured that a clandestine group of Thatcherites have infiltrated the Tory party and are trying to take control.

HERE GOES THE FAVOURITE WORD AGAIN
Danger warning, warning, warning
Tony Abbott immediately hit out at the planned reforms to superannuation describing them as “another broken promise” that would result in less money in the pockets of Australians.
Who are these people who will be treated so badly, you guessed it the RICH, shock horror!
The changes would affect ONLY individuals with around $2 million of savings in superannuation and will take affect from July 1 next year.
Treasury estimates around 16,000 Australians will be affected by the measure in 2014-15 which represents 0.4 per cent of Australia's projected 4.1 million retirees in that year.
So 0.4% of the population deserve Tony's support but the rest do not!
Come on Tony you can't be fair dinkum mate, was it Gina or Rupert that rang you, it sure soundS like it.
Where is the average guy you are always trying to display, is it all a front as some say, or have you really got enough ticker to take on the rich 0.4%.
