Australia: Classic – let someone else pay for the CO2 tax


Will bribing the poor will get Australian PM Julia Gillard her carbon tax approval?


What better way for a politician to connive voter approval on a new carbon tax than to let some groups think that they won’t pay for it, someone else will? That is a classic way liberals get voter approval by making the voters think that if you vote for this tax, you will not pay for it because some company or some rich guys will get stuck with the bill, but not you. It appears that the Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, has added another dimension to that classic con by stating that some voters will even get someone else’s money back into their bank accounts! What a great way to get votes – hand out free money and they’ll rubber stamp whatever BS you come up with!

Gillard seems to be grasping at ways to get those carbon taxes going so the government has more money to blow on the typical useless crap governments blow money on, like those extravagant salaries, healthcare plans and golden retirement packages, not to mention things like studies on the sex life of the Tufted 3 Tit Bush Mouse and a myriad of other ‘important things’ that are usually a gigantic waste of your tax-dollars. What better thing to tax than that evil global warming causing carbon that’s going to kill us all? After all, we only need an impossible to attain $700 trillion dollars to lower the temperature of the globe by a whopping 1 degree.

In a fit of what I’d term a liberal Ponzi Scheme, Gillard wants to tax carbon to the tune of $5.78 billion and then use those misappropriated funds to bribe people into being on her side of the global warming taxation fence. This will get her a higher approval rating not to mention it will assist her in not getting tossed out on her head like her predecessor Kevin Rudd did. So, who’s she going to bribe? Well from the article at The Australian, we get these little snippets.

Ms Gillard said welfare recipients, who pay little or no tax, would not be ignored in the climate compensation package.

“We do need to remember, not everyone who is going to be in need of assistance is in the workforce. We’ve got around four million pensioners. So we’re talking about a balance here across the tax and transfer system.”

Ahh yes, there you have it, let’s get the poor people on our side by telling them they will be the benefactors of our giant Ponzi Scheme that will be used by the Australian government as a wealth redistribution program, which is what the real goal is anyway. If you are a corporation, or have money, you’ll be paying more for your supplies, food, fuel, heat, electricity, cars, tools, and anything else you care to name due to carbon taxes that are allegedly to save the planet from CO2. If you’re poor we’ll take care of you! As long as you vote for us you will not only get lower taxes, but free money, too! Just check the box next to ‘Yes, I want free money!’

If you’re on welfare or if you’re a pensioner with low-income, the government needs your support and what better way than to dangle dollar bills in front of them to get it?  Robin Hood could certainly be proud of Gillard for her latest ‘rob the rich, give to the poor’ scheme that is designed to screw their citizens out of more money and simultaneously get votes for her and her party, all while doing absolutely nothing to save the planet.

This is nothing other than more CO2 Insanity.
