    Howard really had no clue on the end. *I can balance the budget*, so can 18 year old apprentices.

    Since 1972 no govt has balanced the budget except for Howard/Costello from 1996-2007.

    Since 2007 we have racked up $400B of govt debt with nothing to show for that $400B

    The entire thing is the responsibility of the federal government by way of the constitution.

    Nonsense; the states are sovereign entities with their own governors, parliaments, constitions, flags, capitals, etc..

    Nursing homes are an exception, in that they are regulated by the Commonwealth, but even then their workforces come under state legislation; thus it was the Victorian government that acted, albeit too late, to replace the workforce at St Basil’s nursing home where a cluster of infections existed. It is true that covid-19 has highlighted longstanding problems with nursing homes, particularly in the private sector, but for Andrews to attempt to shift blame to the Commonwealth for his government’s failings is contemptible.

  6. Oh come on

    Howard got through his economic shock therapy in 1996-97, dot, which did a lot to pave the way for future surpluses. We should give him that. Of course, he got fiscally sloppy after a few fat years. I don’t think he was particularly committed to ensuring the books remain balanced in the 2000s. They did, in spite of his best efforts.

    Elizabeth,

    I appreciate what you were saying.

    I rarely follow or comment on the Open Topic and coincidentally saw Kaysee’s 3 comments that I have posted over at “the other web site” and lo and behold saw your comment as above and took the chance to gently chide you so folk can see how to do that.

    Yes and I can’t find where I read it but a reputable pollster was analyzing the 2016 results and found a yuge flaw in mainstream polling by under weighting the non-college educated males group. Apparently somehow this massive group is hard to poll accurately.

    Mark the Ballot had some good analysis on how the pollsters got the 2019 Australian election wrong. The polls became wrong when ScoMo took over from Turnbull. Although there was a lot of churn in voting preferences then, there was no actual overall decline in the Liberal party vote, contrary to what the polls said. In fact, their overall vote may have increased a little at that time. The pollsters had oversampled Turnbull voters and undersampled ScoMo voters – again, the non-college educated males group featured in this.

  9. Neil

    Deadbeat. Howard/Costello’s last 2007 budget was a $20B surplus. And we have not run a surplus budget since 2007

    NASA’s Perseverence mission to Mars is due to lift off in about 5 hours if I’ve got my timezones correct. Which lets me put up this interesting bit of engineering and nuclear chemistry:

    Plutonium-238 to help power Perseverance on Mars (29 Jul)

    “Mars 2020 will be the first NASA mission that uses ORNL-produced plutonium-238,” said Alan Icenhour, associate laboratory director for nuclear science and engineering at ORNL.

    Pu-238 is ideal for deep-space travel because of its long half-life of nearly 88 years, but it has been in short supply. Previously, the U.S. stockpile consisted primarily of Pu-238 produced at the Savannah River nuclear plant in the late 1980s, which has since been decaying away. But U.S. production of Pu-238 ended more than 30 years ago.

    That’s why 2015 was a milestone for ORNL: the first new stateside production of Pu-238 in nearly three decades. Since that initial success, the lab has been consistently increasing its Pu-238 production capabilities, aiming to produce 1.5 kilograms per year by 2026.

    Pu 238 has kept the Voyagers going to this day: they still have working scientific instruments 43 years after being launched. So it’s a fine thing Perseverence has it as a power source, and a really good thing that the US has re-established their production line for the isotope. Here’s the vid from the story:

    The labor supply falls and the cost of labor rises though. The cost of this factor (of production) will rise, which would dissuade capital flow. This is if it’s a sudden shock to the system. Depends on how it’s handled.

    But shirley the rising cost of labour then becomes an incentive for capital investment to reduce the demand for labour (noting that there are other factors in play also).

  14. What percentage of the Australian population knew about Howards devious plan to win the election by helping the Orangutans to survive in Indonesia?

  15. Perth Trader

    My take on the Howard / Rudd election was aussies got fat and lazy. They wanted a new face and Rudd fitted the profile. The ATO’s revenue rose after Rudd was elected but labor’s spending increased. Aussies did get ‘buyer remorse’ with Rudd.

    Racism among white Christians is higher than among the nonreligious. That’s no coincidence.
    For most of American history, the light-skinned Jesus conjured up by white congregations demanded the preservation of inequality as part of the divine order.

    A close read of history reveals that we white Christians have not just been complacent or complicit; rather, as the nation’s dominant cultural power, we have constructed and sustained a project of perpetuating white supremacy that has framed the entire American story. The legacy of this unholy union still lives in the DNA of white Christianity today — and not just among white evangelical Protestants in the South, but also among white mainline Protestants in the Midwest and white Catholics in the Northeast.

  17. JC

    But shirley the rising cost of labour then becomes an incentive for capital investment to reduce the demand for labour (noting that there are other factors in play also).

    I don’t disagree, provided those other factors I mentioned above come into play.

    My point was that a rise in living standards are entirely a result of a rising capital to labor ratio. If you left all the other negative factors alone, then created a supply shock in the labor market, do you think capital would be enticed to invest?

    Fisk was suggesting our falling productivity is as a result of immigration. I don’t believe it is.

  19. Fisky

    Productivity can only increase when capital is allocated to productive use. This can occur either in an increasing labor po0l or a dwindling one.

    Unfortunately housing credit vastly outstrips business credit, thanks to our population-property-ponzi model which guarantees returns to property speculators and diverts funds away from small business.

    Indeed I believe Australia is one of the only OECD countries where this is the case. Only by reducing immigration will we be able to address the lack of lending to businesses.

  20. Deadbeat. Howard/Costello’s last 2007 budget was a $20B surplus. And we have not run a surplus budget since 2007

    Around us as we await further test results now that the haematologist has spoken, things have got busier. It was dead quiet here earlier when we arrived and got taken quickly in. Blocked ears and a golf ball into an eye are current issues being addressed. Casualty is a sharing sort of place. You don’t want to eavesdrop but it is hard not to.

    My take on the Howard / Rudd election was aussies got fat and lazy. They wanted a new face and Rudd fitted the profile.

    Now you are talking. But just take one thing which Rudd promised in 2007. A NBN costing taxpayers $4.7B and finished by 2013. How many aussies remember that?

    Rudds NBN policy was sexy. After lying to win the election Rudd/ALP threw the policy into the bin and came up with the current policy on a plane flight in 2009 costing who knows what finished who knows when

    Just imagine what lefties would say if Howard lied to win an election like Rudd did?

    If you want to collapse immigration and allow living standards to rise this is what you have to do.

    1. Liberalize the labor market with no bullshit minimum wages and allow all conditions to be negotiated between employee and the management

    2. Get the government out of the energy business and if you want to fire up a coal plant, be my guest.

    3. Reduce red environmental tape to the point that reflects sensible policy and nothing more.

    4. Ensure ASIC fucks off.

    5. Eliminate capital gains taxes.

    6. Reduce building code regulations to ensure land prices fucked with.

    7. Lower the corp tax to 10%

    8. Allow 100% deduction for capital expenditure in first year.

    9. Reduce income taxes materially.

    10. Make super voluntary with the understanding that people will no longer receive pensions or any bullshit.

    There’s more, but you get the hang of it.

    Howard / Costello tax cuts if re/elected. ”A re-elected coalition government is proposing to reduce the number of tax brackets to four over a five-year period: 15, 30, 35 and 40 cents in the dollar. It proposes raising the tax-free threshold to $14,000 next year.

    The tax cuts are worth more than $34 billion.

    The aim of the restructure is to arrive at a tax-free threshold of $20,000 with the top marginal rate set at 40 cents.”

    But you have to add recovered cases; which I’ll leave you to add up. Then add an estimate for untested, asymptomatic cases, which WHO estimates at 80% of the confirmed + recovered cases. You end up with a ration of ~ 0.4, higher than influenza, about the same as H1N1 and far less than SARS and much less than MERS.

    (Reuters) – Scientists have solved an enduring mystery about Stonehenge, determining the place of origin of many of the megaliths that make up the famed monument in Wiltshire, England, thanks to a core sample that had been kept in the United States for decades.

    Geochemical testing indicates that 50 of Stonehenge’s 52 pale-gray sandstone megaliths, known as sarsens, share a common origin about 15 miles (25 km) away at a site called West Woods on the edge of Wiltshire’s Marlborough Downs, researchers said on Wednesday.

    The sarsens were erected at Stonehenge around 2500 BC. The largest stands 30 feet (9.1 meters) tall. The heaviest weighs about 30 tons.

    By 2040, AEMO is projecting that two thirds of coal-fired power generation is likely to be retired.

    That opens the way for a 200 per cent increase in household solar and batteries and increased reliance on grid-scale solar and wind, along with pumped hydro.

    When you read the actual report:

    – 12 GW of coal generation retired, and replaced with:

    – 26-50 GW of new renewable generation,
    – “supported” by 8-19GW of dispatchable hydro, gas, unicorns.

    So, $200+ billion in new investment, which might probably work – providing the gas price remains at current Covid levels.

My original point was that the Senate was designed to be unrepresentative, and both chambers are wall-to-wall swill, so calling the Senate “unrepresentative swill” is stating the obvious.

    Australia fast-tracks ambitious $16 billion solar power export project

    Australia decided this week to fast track approvals for a A$22 billion ($16 billion) project to supply solar power to Singapore via the world’s longest subsea high voltage cable, a move to boost recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

    The Australia-ASEAN Power Link project, run by Singapore-based Sun Cable, envisions a 10 gigawatt solar farm and energy storage facility of up to 30 GWh in the Northern Territory, with a 4,500-km (2,800-mile) link to Singapore and eventually Indonesia.

    Australia decided? Ambitious? Solar power? Subsea cable?
    Oh dear.

    That’s outrageous. DV is a proxy for dysfunctional families, alcohol and drug problems, child physical and sexual abuse, poor school results, and various studies indicate children raised in such environments can experience pathological psychological and physical consequences well into adulthood.

    Okay how would you craft the question of where the immigration should come?

    1. Considering the benefits to Australia and the contributions of earlier immigrants, do you have a preference from where Australia should source it’s immigrants?
    2. What skills and education qualifications would you prefer to immigrants to possess?

    John Howard’s Orangutan Initiative

    So Howard gave some money to help Orangutans in Indonesia. Is this a hanging offense?

    You said he did this to help him win the election. How many aussies in 2007 knew that Howard had given money to help monkeys survive in Indonesia?

    I am still unsure what you are hoping to achieve next, apart from passively waiting for The Great Uprising of the Sovereign Peoples.

    You got there in the end.
    Passive involves at this stage keyboard warring but there’s not much else I can do.
    Thanks to hysterical women and the apathetic sneerers like you.
    Too great a number.
    I admit that.
    We have a few ideas in the pipeline but that’s it.

    KD,
    Do you think the people who strung Benito up, waited for a national referendum to decide who would do it?
    LL,
    You’re too comfortable and possess, like very many right wingers, an absolute insane outlook as if you are sitting on the side lines of life , narrating it.
    When it smacks you in the mouth and pulls you out of your home and puts you on your knees so your kids can see you shot, only then will you say, oh shit, if only I’d done something way back at the start.

    It’s ostrich time at the cat, has been for months, ………………I really find the level of disengagement with reality astounding.

    So tell me again, whatever movement develops, why does it need to court the likes of you, or indeed the fairer sex who aren’t already all for fighting back?

    The women carrying on the way they are, anti male, sexist moles with too much to say as the most pampered humans on the planet, I called cows.
    They are pieces of shit, as are the beta males and left wing men.
    Are they not?

    I stand behind everything I ave said and have good reason for saying it.

  196. JC

    Trades:

    It’s not a trick question as I’m asking how would you put together a question focusing on where new entrants hail from?

    Let’s say you want to allow most access to European immigrants. At face value that would sound pretty good to some people here. Have you considered letting them in would mean the Green vote would bloat? North and South Europe makes no difference. They are to the left of the ALP and hugely statist.

    The US? The west coast would be no different. East coasters aren’t coming here so we don’t even have to worry.

  197. Bundyrum

    Makka, I understand where you are coming from, but when the country has people like the head prefect we are shafted, he is just a greedy bastard & all the rest of us in his mind are worthless plebs.
    The sack of shit has no soul, just read its posts.

    Suggestion (I know I may be taking this too literally) –

    But giving goodwill support to our neignbour Indonesia may just be a Good Thing In Itself, whatever the stated purpose on the day.

  199. incoherent rambler

    Okay how would you craft the question of where the immigration should come?

    Q. Should we continue to import people from war zones?
    A. Yes. Of course. Their experience will be helpful in the upcoming civil war.

    Old lady brushtail was here just now, along with kid. Kid is quite cautious, but she was with mum so was braver tonight. I broke a bit off carrot, gave mum the big bit and held out the small bit to kiddie.

    Kiddie thinks this is interesting. Food? For me? Sniffed cautiously then bit my finger. Oops that’s not carrot. Second attempt was more successful, and with a triumphant lump of carrot in mouth kiddie disappeared up onto the roof with this magnificent treasure.

    Australia fast-tracks ambitious $16 billion solar power export project

    Australia decided this week to fast track approvals for a A$22 billion ($16 billion) project to supply solar power to Singapore via the world’s longest subsea high voltage cable, a move to boost recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

    The Australia-ASEAN Power Link project, run by Singapore-based Sun Cable, envisions a 10 gigawatt solar farm and energy storage facility of up to 30 GWh in the Northern Territory, with a 4,500-km (2,800-mile) link to Singapore and eventually Indonesia.

    Australia decided? Ambitious? Solar power? Subsea cable?
    Oh dear.

    Sun Cable is an unlisted vehicle jointly controlled by Cannon-Brookes and the Twigster.
    But these guys certainly know how to put the squirrel grip on the public purse – so expect some yummy Covid recovery funds to wash through their books.

    And how much did chunk twiggy and cannon fucking brookes put in: $12 mill. No doubt angus taylor, who should be belted with a frozen turd, will give them the rest of the $16 bill.

  204. calli

    I identify as none of those categories, JC. Last time I did a “wonder of me” quiz it came up as “Anarcho-Capitalist”.

    Which scared even me.

    Also, what am I missing about Dexters? I thought they were short, cute and highly productive. *bats eyelashes*

    1. Considering the benefits to Australia and the contributions of earlier immigrants, do you have a preference from where Australia should source it’s immigrants?

    Okay Euros right?
    Let’s take a looksee.
    You can’t compare my mother’s generation and think you’ll end up with say a similar bunch of Italian immigrants. The gals in my mother’s generation, were God fearing, church going mammas. Have you seen the most recent load off-the-boat Italians sheilas? If you find plain skin without a tatt you’d be hard pressed. They aren’t the same people any more and they’re all left leaning.

    My kid married an english gal from the bounties. She’s a leftwing nutcase. A nice one, but still a typical English female who sees the world through a leftwing prism.

    Again, these aren’t the same folks we saw. And they wont vote Liars. They’ll vote Green.

    2. What skills and education qualifications would you prefer to immigrants to possess?

    Okay, highly skilled incredibly gifted geek from Silicon Valley. What would be his/her voting patterns?

  210. Makka:

    On immigration and pop. growth we definitely should have a referendum. The question should also be asked from where immigrants are to be allowed. It’s urgently needed.

    The couple who ‘defended’ their home in the US showed how it was done. Nothing happened until the mayor became inconvenienced by the mob.
    We will only start to recover our country when we realise our leaders are only representing themselves, and we start acting in a similar manner.
    It will be a very sad day when the situation has deteriorated to this.

    Jeeeeesus Christ people, we’re screwed, don’t you wanna go down fighting?

    Okay, nearly all SA’s I’ve met are verging on the left. They arrive poor and there’s a political party that offers them free stuff. Who are they going to vote for?

    Make the case for closing down most immigration because the fuckers vote leftwing once they arrive (to a very large extent). At least that’s a reasonable argument to make from the right. It’s out there, it’s true and it’s fucking honest. That’s my argument.

    July 29 (UPI) — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a procedure to revise a stent Wednesday, the court announced.

    “Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct stent that was originally placed at Sloan Kettering in August 2019,” the Supreme Court said in a statement.

Then one is moved to the hot plate and tended with concentrated devotion as the populace watch in awe as the concoction evolves. Then to the back burner and another treat is brought forward. Some of the well known stock-pots include: Global Warming, Abos, The Pay Gap, The Catholic Church, Alphabet & Gay Rights, Trump, Domestic Violence, Diverse Immigration, Wimminzes.

    ‘When it smacks you in the mouth and pulls you out of your home and puts you on your knees so your kids can see you shot’

    Firstly, my kid’s seen me shot a few times, mostly because he’s been responsible for it. Cop a barrage of nerf rounds right in the sack, point blank at 6.00 a.m. and tell me your day’s going to go all right.

    You have a point though. Perhaps, at the other end of country and unafflicted, as is everyone else by this nonsense I’m restricted to being an observer – although I do have some strong views on this appalling state of affairs.

    For that reason I’m loath to lead from the couch and say ‘this is what I’s do if I was in Vicco right now’, because for that reason I’d become one of the urgers* inciting people to do all sorts of shit, but never have occasion to do it myself.

  223. Makka

    I want immigration cut dramatically. At least 80%. IMO any immigrant must qualify in the following areas;

    – Fluent written and spoken English
    – Trade /Professional / Academic quals internationally verified and recognized (in fields where only GENUINE long term personnel shortages exist or in fields we choose to expand in eg Nuclear Science, Medicine, scientific research, manufacturing etc)
    – Zero criminal record
    – Preference given to young families.
    – Sufficient funds to live off for at least 3 years deposited in Australian Bank
    – Health clearance.
    – No Mooslims

  224. Struth

    *You know who you are.

    Soon to be $5 mill AUD (or $500USD).

    I’m reasonably confident this concept was obliterated by more knowledgeable people here some time ago.. Energy loss in the cable over distance, or somesuch.

    Israelis would be a decent source of immigrants, but you have to make sure they’re not from the big cities as they’re also mostly left wing loons. The ones living in territories near the borders would be great though 🙂

    If you got a job with Manildra at one of their grain/canola mills, your costs of living could be multiples lower than working in medical research in the inner city say with UTS.

    Meanwhile in Tasmania, the coppers report:

    A 59 year old Penguin woman has been charged with failing to comply with the lawful requirement or direction of an emergency management worker as a result of two incidents in Launceston today.

    The woman returned to Tasmania on the Spirit after travelling in country Victoria today. She was transported to Launceston by bus where she allegedly caused a number of issues before being placed into mandatory quarantine at the Best Western Hotel, Launceston.

    Shortly after 11am, police were called to the Best Western Hotel after the woman had allegedly become abusive and aggressive and was refusing to stay in her room. Police gave her advice in relation to quarantine and left shortly after.

    Just after 2pm police were again called to the Best Western in relation to the same woman. She was allegedly again refusing to stay in her room, being disruptive and throwing food. Police gave the woman a formal direction to quarantine however, she continued to refuse.

    The woman was arrested and charged with ‘Fail to comply with the lawful requirement or direction of an emergency management worker’ and has been detained to appear in an out of hours court session in the Launceston Magistrates Court at 8pm tonight.

    One group of immigrants I would put on fast track entry into Australia even with this scamdemic would be South African farmers.

    Excellent idea. They are prepared to live where Australians don’t want to live, and they are prepared to do the work Australians don’t want to do. If it wasn’t for expat South Africans and New Zealanders, the Australian wheat industry would have ground to a halt thirty years ago.
