Mining Tax
 
Just wondering what the general thoughts on this mining tax are? I know that living in a mining town, the tax is really biting hard as my employer is looking at retrenchments as the mines are putting a hold on development.As people know no development no confidence to spend money as people are holding on to their money until things are finalized with the goverment. So is it affecting others as well?

Paul,

Have a look here for a spirited discussion.

Cheers

Merv and Sharon 06-30-2010 06:20 PM

I agree - we don't need a mining tax or even a government for that matter. Let the mining companies run the country!

BMK 07-06-2010 04:27 AM

Mmm just read that the PM has backed off and will only pass on a 1% reduction in payroll tax to us employers as she has re done the mining tax.

Whoa with 200 staff I can retire on the 1% saving the mining tax passes onto us in savings..:LOL:

Not complaining but in business we have over 3% Workcover, 5.5% payroll and soon to be 10% super..

....%/..whoa Julia I'm excited now we have unpaid maternity as well to pick the costs up on.

The real deal on unpaid maternity is employers are picking up anything above the basic wage and the super, workcover and payroll tax etc.

Guess who picks up the costs - the customers that who..:eek:

A platoon of soldiers was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious.

On the opposite side of the road was an Australian soldier in a similar but less serious state.

The soldier was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the Platoon Leader asked the injured Australian what had happened.

The soldier reported, 'I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent.' We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved.

He yelled back that Kevin Rudd is a bureaucratic, Good-for-nothing, left wing labour dickhead who knows bugger all about running the country.'

'So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian!'

He retaliated by yelling, 'Oh yeah? Well, so does Julia Gillard ! '

'And, there we were, in the middle of the road, laughing, shaking hands, when a bloody truck hit us.'

Oh hey,

We are trying to get the boys through school. Fixing doors and other fine parts of barns. Newest photo is of the turkey I got in the spring.

http://www.clubcobra.com/photopost/d...aveTurkey5.jpg

Yukon passed on, so we are de-furing the house. Planted a little under 100 trees in the spring.

Other than that, we really have not done too much.

How are things at your end? When are you coming back? How is the restaurant business and that GT40?

:D :D

Love the Middle East political joke. Here is another one:

Tony's Abbott' s emigrated to Australia at 16 but his mother revealed earlier this year that he was in fact a failed abortion, and that he was conceived during a wild sex romp in Soho, England, while his mother's husband was away on a business trip. This has served to strengthen Tony's firm support of clinical abortion within Australia, even to the point of his recent modestly successful bid to place control of the RU468 abortion pill into the hands of the AWB, in the hopes that they will export it back in time to Iraq so that Saddam Hussein may be reverse-temporally aborted.

In the great hospitals debate it was sad that the worm didn’t find Tony’s crack about Kevin being the parliamentary anaesthetist at all amusing. Furthermore it was most noticeable that from that point the worm went to sleep while Tony was talking.%/

Merv and Sharon 07-10-2010 12:55 AM

Yeah Victor - we seem to struggle to find home grown leaders. Both the present hopefuls were born in Britain. I have this pet hate of politicians who spend decades in parliament and see it as a 'career', living off us. They are so cynical and burned out when they eventually get to the top that they forget what is was that got them there.

victor 07-10-2010 01:30 AM

Gidday Merv, The vast majority of the public thinks the country is going in the wrong direction, and yet our governmental structure does not allow this to be easily changed. Real change would be better enacted by lining up Constitutional amendments to federalize education, outlaw abortion or whatever else strikes your fancy. But Australians can’t agree on these topics and so the government stays in the center and out of the line of fire as much as possible. Our two-party system has effectively ensured that change is not coming, no matter who sits in the Office.
If change is what the people want, and I hear this country’s government is subject to the will of the people, they should work on issues closer to home instead of expecting Gillard and Co to deliver a magic bullet that fixes all of their problems. Voting isn’t the end of civic responsibility — our governmental lackeys can only do so much.:)

:D
Kevin Rudd called Julia Gillard into his office one day and said, “Julia I
have a great idea! We are going to go all out to win the country voters.”
“Good idea Prime Minister, how will we go about it?” said Julia.
“Well,” said Rudd, “we’ll get ourselves one of those Driza Bone coats, some RM
Williams boots, a stick and an Akubra hat, oh and a Blue Cattle dog.
Then we’ll really look the part. We’ll go to a typical old outback country
pub, we’ll show we really enjoy the bush.”" Right ,”said Julia.
Days later, all kitted out and with the requisite Blue heeler, they set off
from Canberra in a westerly direction. Eventually they arrived at
just the place they were looking for and found a typical outback pub. Walked
in with the dog and up to the bar.”G,day mate,” said Rudd, to the bartender,
“two middies of your best beer.” “Good afternoon Prime Minister,” said the
bartender, “two middies of our best coming up”.

Gillard and Rudd stood leaning on the bar drinking their beer and chatting,
nodding now and again to those who came into the bar for a drink. The dog
lay quietly at their feet.All of a sudden, the door from the adjacent bar
opened and in came a grizzled old stockman, complete with stockwhip. He
walked up to the Cattle dog, lifted its tail with the whip and looked
underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked back to the other bar. A few
moments later, in came another old stockman with his whip. He walked up to
the dog and, lifted it’s tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and
went back to the other bar. Over the course of the next hour or so another
four or five stockmen came in and, lifted the dogs tail and went away
looking puzzled.

Eventually, Rudd and Gillard could stand it no longer and called the Barman
over.”Tell me,” said Rudd, “why did all those old stockmen come in and look
under the dog’s tail like that? Is it an old outback custom?” “Strewth no!”
said the barman. “It’s just that someone went ‘n told ‘em there was a cattle
dog in this bar with two arseholes!”
