Bah. I'm living in Australia & struggle with ever increasing prices on everything. Mortgage, food, power, water, gas, car registration and now
It’s to the point that we were planning on having another child (we have one now), but are seriously considering not to now. We want to be able to
provide for them as needed yet we appear to be ‘providing’ for everyone else BUT ourselves. We both work & have pretty good jobs but live from one
pay day to the next.
Also, I cannot understand how apathetic Australia has become. "There will be NO carbon tax under my leadership"...
Once her fat butt was in the Prime Ministers chair she did a complete reversal and now we face the exact tax she promised we would not.
Meanwhile people got a bit angry and then went straight back to their Xboxes and American Idol...
I fail to see this tax achieving anything except harvesting money from the general public to try and pay back the $900.00 Rudd gave us (yes, I sent
mine back - I don't want my child to be still paying for that in their later life).
Personally we've planted over 11,000 native trees on our property and continue to do so. I'll choose the practical method of helping pollution
issues over an evil tax forced upon us by a lying 'you know what'.
