    Fingers crossed that it doesn't happen, but if it does then the next question is how to deal with it.

    Business tax cuts will just take too long to filter down into the economy, the best way I think is to cut lower and middle income taxes to stimulate consumer spending. The money for this has to be found, and I think the best way to recoup it is to put an export tax on our natural gas and minerals exports. That may cut the mining / gas companies profits, but as most of them don't pay much tax anyway they can afford it, and local consumers and industries will benefit.

    What a lot of governments tend to do in a recession is cut government spending which only makes the problem worse. I think Labor is aware of the pitfalls of doing this, but I'm not so sure about the Conservatives.

    Tisme, I think you have got it around the wrong way as I stated in post #9

    I don't have reasons to get angry.......I am cool calm and collective..

    If you get angry over infinitesimal things then you should seek some anger management to control yourself.


    Getting angry like you do at times only makes your situation worse....You then revert to trolling, humiliation and character assassination in an attempt to silence your opponent......When you make hideous statements I generally check them out and then contribute the facts and that is when you get angry after you have been exposed.

    Showing one's anger does not solve anything.

    Getting angry over minor things can cause all sorts of health problems including high blood pressure and heart problems not forgetting of course one's brain...The brain can get very twisted when you get angry and can lead to irrational behavior.

    Got enough material here to make that a trilogy.

    What's "rusks all round" Homer? Australiana or phrases before my time? :D

    I shouldn't talk though... got a few grey beard hair growing. Have always been prematurely grey but the beard? Dam I'm getting old.

    And as old men and anger goes... here's the latest report from Reuter's about US lead poisoning epidemic.

    http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-lead-testing/#interactive-lead

    There are over 3,000 "sites" in the US with higher lead poisoning than the recent Flint Michigan fiasco. And nobody seem to give a damn or a dime.

    Apparently they can afford all sort of weapons and military adventures. But feeding their kids or bringing their own people clean drinking water - how can they afford that.

    All my remarks are meticulously researched, seriously and deeply considered and immaculately expressed.

    That guy, like a lot on the left are romancing with themselves.

    It will never happen.

    While you have one religion or some parasite ideology trying to force their beliefs on us when it is not what we want nor is it our way of life, there will always be conflict.

    A large percentage of the Australian population don't want Socialism, fanatical religions or Marxism in our lives so gives us our freedom of speech, stop this lunatic AGM crap. freeze renewable energy, cease Muslim immigration and deport those who defy our laws and way of life.

    Well of course your ideas are fairly moderate compared to mine, but then again I'm a true right winger who understands the basic components of capitalism and the working class are an essential part of that. Wannabe capitalists wrongly think the Liberal Party is somehow aligned with free market capitalism and freedom of expression .:D

    The Liberal Party of today is not the conservative Liberal Party of yesterday.......Turnbull is leaning too far to the left and Shorten has already gone too far to the left.

    But I am not angry about it......I just sit back and observe what is going on trust common sense will prevail and that a strong leader will emerge but it is up to the people of this nation.......I can foresee a revolt on the horizon and I hope I live long enough to see it happen.

    Yavul Mein Fuhrer !

    Thank God our Westminster system makes a Trump like situation fairly unlikely. A leader is only a leader by consensus of his peers and if (s)he goes off their rocker they can be thrown out a la Abbott.

    So I'm afraid you will have to move to the USA or North Korea if you want to see a strong leader in action, coz I doubt if it will happen here.
