    So I wonder, if the first 3-5 years of the carbon price mechanism, throughout which the period the price will be fixed, is just a stealth phase to get us all trained to pay carbon taxes like good little sheeple, before the full-blown emissions trading scheme comes into effect, at which stage the illuminati bankster elitists will use their derivatives and their trickiness to hijack the scheme and use to funnel funds into establishing a New World Order.

    What do you guys think? Anyone planning on open revolt as encouraged by Tony Abbott?

    There's a reason why they made every attempt possible to take the guns out of the hands of the Australian citizens dickmojo...

    The looters of the system deserve to be shot.

    My only hope is that instead of the citizens attacking each other over cultural differences, they'll instead turn their attention to the real enemy of the people and make an example of them.

    Well, we can all dream, can't we?

    Just keep the beer flowing and the sports on TV.

    There will be no open revolt by Australians.

    Maybe this?

    Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says Julia Gillard's announcement of a carbon price is a "betrayal of the Australian people" and predicts a "people's revolt" in response.

    Wow, Gillard claims that the she has a mandate from the last election to bring in a carbon tax. "The people voted for it".

    Except that the people did not vote for her, she lost the election and then got in as a loser with the help of a lot of bribery and threats.

    What a reptile. She makes Albanese look honest.

    Nice link Stedlar - an absolute bullet between the eyes on her questionable integrity.

    That said, can you name me ANY Prime Minister that isn't a lying sack of shit, past or present?

    We can certainly appreciate the mandate and credentials of any particular flavour of polly (I certainly appeciated the honesty of Paul Keating myself) but in the end, they're ALL lying scumbags & power junkies, only looking out for the interests of themselves and their respective parties/financial backers.

    Just as Gerald Celente points out under the farce that is the US 'democratic' 2 party model :

    "Republicans ousting Democrats is like the Gambinos replacing the Bonnanos. Whoever wins, the people lose."

    Australia is no different.

    These people will lie through their teeth because they don't have to be held accountable. They get in under false promises, protected by parliamentary privilege (rules to bullshit the people THEY made up to protect themselves), they then do whatever they hell THEY want, short of invoking major civil unrest and then come election time, the tag in their 'opposition' mates for the next 4 years and walk out with pensions for life.

    It's all about feeding the illusion to the masses that they are in control. That the 'public' are 'democractically' controlling the system.

    Never mind the fact it's all horseshit. As long as they can continue to feed the illusion and keep the masses placated, they can continue to be the parasites and looters they have always been.

    Gillard was never even elected by the people. It was a hung vote until they used the political process of their own design to cut backroom deals to take power.

    Don't you just cringe every time that stupid bogan ranga gets on the idiot box and opens her mouth?

    And to even think THIS is what we are represented by all around the world.

    It's a national embarrassment and disgrace.

    'Pragmatic' Julia will do as the US controlled party in power wishes. If it was Tony in power he'd do the same folks. This is all a sideshow. The last chance the Australian public had to rise up against CIA control of their government was the Whitlam sacking. A million in the streets didn't dissuade Howard from declaring war on Iraq at the behest of the US. Carbon Tax will be just a ripple played out in the pages of Letters to the Editor across the nation.

    Congratulations to the insightful poster on SS who described the Australian 'revolts' as a half hour of whining noise from the pub' (sorry can't find the post - anyone?)

    We are, unfortunately, a self satisfied collection of armchair socialists, self absorbed hedonists and ill educated debt slaves and that is the majority that will vote with anger or self-righteousness believing it makes a difference to the outcomes planned for us. The only difference between politicians and parties is the pace that they introduce the robber baron's agendas.

    I took the third option, neither.

    I got my name signed off and walked straight to the ballot box, folded the paper and put it in without ever going near a booth.

    The look from the ballot box attendant made me realise I wasn't the first one to do that either.

    I'm a political athiest for life.

    I don't believe in any of them at all and absolutely refuse to give either option my personal written endorsement by default.

    Price of carbon is bullshit.

    We ought to change our lifestyle instead. Rather then consuming and producing solely for profit and continuing this cycle at an exponential rate.

    Zeigiest III moving forward movie is a real eye opener, what good is taxing carbon. When we make things and plan to have it broke and replaced in 12 months or less. Why not make quality things that last?

    We are so stuffed as a human race, yet we have these retards in politics that can't think any better or have a long term vision to change things.

    God help us, we just have too many people on this planet. And everyone has their own interests at heart. Greed is driving our current lifestyles today, when there are no resources left what do we do?

    we could sacrifice a virgin to appease the angry gods
    but a carbon tax levied by modern day "high priest" politicians is far more profitable these days ...

    A carbon emissions tax is nothing less than putting a price on breathing. With a cost on carbon dioxide, CO2 content in respiration and average respiratory rates, the price of a human life can be calculated at birth or the cost of breathing indexed to age.

    This is very far from a humorous exercise of socialists sticking it to big industry, this is a radical "green" agenda to "save the planet" from us lousy humans at any price, without regard to our personal rights, dignity and freedoms.

    After all, Global Warming is your fault and you have to be stopped for your own good and the good of the planet. Just be glad that Dr. Bob and Nurse Julia know best and smile while they ream you.

    However, there is nothing more certain than an emissions tax having zero impact on the quantity of carbon emissions. All it will do is fuel inflation as wages, pensions and benefits will have to rise to adjust to the rising cost of living, as input costs are pushed through into product costs and the RBA waves its magic wand. Through that prism, one can see that an emissions tax has nothing to do with reducing global warming, but everything to do with taxing our very right to life. Sure it might be applied to the significant polluters with loads of money first, such as energy generators, mining companies, transportation fuels and those damn farting cows, but it is a hop, skip and a jump to taxing you for using your lungs and rectum for expelling CO2.

    So don't go laughing this off as the stupidity, arrogance and dishonesty of the obviously corrupt and traitorous politicians. This matter goes beyond the transparency of the hubris and hypocrisy of the political class and has direct implications for our right to breathe freely. I shit you not, Carbon Credits will be coming to a tax form near you.
