It seems to me that as the the left continue to increase their political presence we just sink deeper and deeper into a sea of madness. Since Gillard and her cronies won the last election in Australia, the degree of insane government proclamations has increased three fold. We have her lies over the carbon tax, and then the mind boggling claim from Gillard that she never said “no carbon tax”, and now today a reversal on that, and yet she is apparently still considered fit to be Prime Minister. How is that sane?
The latest even more mind boggling stuff comes from the man predicted by Bob Hawke to soon replace Gillard as PM, Greg Combet, presently Minister of Climate Change. (just think about the insanity of having such a ministry) Combet says people can beat the tax by turning appliances off at the wall and using energy efficient light bulbs. The carbon tax is predicted to add $300 to annual electricity bills. However, Combet has also pledged generous cash assistance for low-income earners and pensioners to offset any power rises. He also foreshadowed compensation for families if petrol was part of the tax.
So here we have a tax brought in to discourage the use of energy, and here is the Minster of Climate Change so damn crazy he wants the tax to be paid by the government????? (really other taxpayers) So where is the incentive to save energy going to come from? How is that even remotely rational?
What this means is that the whole scheme becomes not targeted on reducing energy use but transferring income, same old same old left wing crapola, but worse, making the original justification for the tax the fraud that everyone has said it was in the first place….!!!
Worse again, the dumb bastard saying these things is considered to be so overflowing with potential and ability he’s going to replace Gillard…!!! I wonder if the damn loon can walk and chew gum at the same time.
Its just so utterly crazy it leaves me speechless. How can people vote for such brazen idiocy??
