I will take a fair bit of poetic license to cut to the chase.
Our very popular Socialist Federal Government, after 13 or something years of a rabid Capitlist Government, thinks its our duty to lead the world in every way possible.
I love this when it comes to inventions, medicine, sports, health, education etc. but when it comes down to 22 million people wanting to play in the big league, who pays. wheres the cash coming from?
Im all for us being involved in every War the US has fought in since the Boxer Rebellion. Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, the two World Wars and all the others cost us a lot because we only became a nation in 1901. Its money well spent and before Iraq, believe it or not, we had only ONE serving member of the Aussie Armed Forces whao had combat experience. An old Warrant Officer who was in Vietnam. So we need to be in conflicts in order to get experience, not just for political and social reasons.
However now we want to not only take part, but lead the entire world in Climate Change. Forget Al Gore, hes just a smart businessman, get on board with our Socialist Government.
Not only will the average house hold be paying 5 times more for water, gas and electricity in 10 years time, we now are going to commit to some World leading rate of black balloons or something that will see us lead the world in world saving-ness! Our 22 million people who combined produce less green house gasses than a Chinese Wok shop are going to save the planet.
I just hope you realise our sacrifice. 22 million poor lil Aussies are going to save the planet and lead by example. I can hear the Ruskies and the Chows and the Curries pissing themselves laughing now.
Today they cut into the TV after the news, like they do when there is an Earthquake. It was the leader of the Capitalist Oppo announcing that he HAD to agree to the Governments stand on climate change, rah rah we have to do it, for our childrens children. Gawd it made me sick. Now both parties agree they are going to make us pay, hell or high water to reduce our carbon emissions to a world leading standard.
22 million people and businesses forced to pay a ransom so the Government or only possible alternative can say that we lead the world on Climate Change.
Australia is a test market for everything from hamburgers, TVs, cars to Cults. Now the world is going to be looking to us as a test case on Climate Change. I really fear that whatever happens here will happen to you ten years later. A role reversal for a change, but not a good one.
So Friends, the sooner you can become self sufficient the better off you will be.
"Oh yes that was the Brown Tunrkley plant, it employed 400 people. The Government said they had to spend 5 million in three years to bring it up to the new standard, so it closed".
