    Good idea mosh
    redistribute wealth
    by bulldozing all Oz cities and spreading
    wealth to the rest of Oz
    Oh those obscenely
    politicalcorectoid city dwellerds
    dont even do science as we do here in the bush
    but do climate from their BOM TV in concreteville
    and argue
    that scientist bushies cant draw the carbon. cycle
    and have you done so yet

    probably not because its the rightangles of the hypotenuse of disestablishmentarianism squared by the power of 7.36 but the dwarf should have known that

    How stupid
    the "carbon.cycle" is an economic opportunity
    for the bush here ( Oz)
    as black caviar is for racing.
    You global denier city dwelling idiots
    pull yr fng heads in
    doze yr 1/4's in Sd/M and here in bush Oz
    will offset with churning CO2 into the ground.
    Heard of peak agri/land yet?

    A brown dwarf you say? I heard it was because humanity was under attack by the PPA (penguin-polar bear alliance) who have invented an earth warming machine so they can have a nicer climate (which explains why the poles are warming faster than the rest of the planet).

    Now of course, like all real life stories,
    this also begins, once upon a ti-to.
    And Happiness Stan, whose life evolved
    near a femerald coloured dreamy most,
    had his pure existance and his being
    in the deep joy and the multi colour of the rainbold.
    Oh yes. His home was a victoriana sharowbold,
    and this is the fourwheelful of sst sst out the backgrove.
    Now as Eaved and his deep approachey,
    his eye on the moon, all time some time
    deep joy of a full moon scintilating dangly
    in the heavenly bode, but now only half.
    Oh blow your cool man, he dood this deep thoughcus.
    What is the folly of this half disappearing of the moony most.
    And as the light did a scintilading change through timely most,
    stopped still, and he did a deep thoughcus.
    What ! Absloutely smashing flaked he was.
    So gathering all behind in the hintermost, he ploddy ploddy forward
    into the deep fundemold of the complicading forry to sort this one out matey.
    Where at Man he thoucus, where at Man...... oh dear.

    Subject: RE: Carbon Tax: Objection

    Dear Mr. Crean,

    Thank you for sending me what, I presume was a stock response to enquiries about the Carbon Tax. Certainly it did not address or respond to any of the objections to this tax I put to you, but I do appreciate your effort to propagate your "party line" in the response.

    Regardless of the suitability or otherwise of your response, may I further point out to you the effects inflation and debt stress is having and will continue to have on the "working families" of Australia, independent of your Carbon Tax initiative, as detailed in the following articles:

    Tomazin, F., April 3 2011, Bleak houses: debt, welfare crisis in the suburbs, The Age. Retrieved from http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/b...are-crisis-in-the-suburbs-20110402-1csmn.html.

    Harriet, A., April 3 2011, Looming food crisis showing on our shelves, The Age. Retrieved from: http://www.theage.com.au/national/looming-food-crisis-showing-on-our-shelves-20110402-1csl3.html.

    Webb, R., April 3 2011, Going up: food prices set to soar, The Age. Retrieved from: http://www.theage.com.au/business/going-up-food-prices-set-to-soar-20110402-1csgs.html.

    Collett, J. April 2, 2011, On borrowed time: rates set to rise, The Age. Retrieved from: http://www.theage.com.au/business/on-borrowed-time-rates-set-to-rise-20110401-1crjh.html.

    I would ask you to reflect on the effects of introducing this new tax and the impact it will have on the "working families" of Australia in light of these reports detailing current debt stress, food inflation and future interest rate rises. Do you honestly believe it is in the interests of "working families" to introduce a new tax at this time?

    The Greens and your government's solution to the induced financial burden from the Carbon Tax you advocate is to introduce another tier of welfare to "assist" families meet the additional price inflation you are planning. In effect, to broaden the size and scope of the welfare system in Australia to potentially cause every household, family and individual to become dependent on the government and its bureaucracy to afford the increased cost of living you propose, advocate and champion. Is that you vision for Australia and Australians? For everyone to become welfare dependents?

    So in addition to my previous objections, I put it to you that this new tax is just an inefficient redistribution of money, encourages greater government dependence, stifles any prospect of independent innovation in energy efficiency and does not reduce in any way the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

    I implore you to reconsider your vision for Australia and pray you become a champion for the financial independence and prosperity of all Australians and for the societal and individual dignity so derived, instead of this bleak future of ever increasing welfare queues, bureaucracy and hand-outs.

    Sincerely,

    Gino

    Subject: Carbon Tax: Objection

    Dear Mr. Crean,

    I am writing to you to lodge my objection to your government introducing yet another new TAX, this time for the emission of carbon dioxide. I have given some thought to the alleged effectiveness and utility of this TAX and have concluded that introducing such a TAX is against the interests of all Australians. In particular, this TAX:

    Just moves pollution problems elsewhere by reducing the international competitiveness of Australian enterprises forcing their relocations to lower cost, higher polluting nations such as China;
    Will damage a fragile economy by forcing up the price of all locally produced inputs, increasing costs to an already strained consumer suffering under already increasing interest rates, fuel costs with little or no disposable income to speak of, while forcing the closure of those businesses that are marginal and cannot afford to relocate off-shore;
    Will reduce foreign investment by changing the rules for businesses operating here . . . again (sovereign risk ), and reducing the profit level of Australian based businesses;
    Is not socially equitable Those of least means will be hurt worst by increasing power bills; and
    Is a pillar for taxing life itself through establishing a cost of CO2 emissions, so too is a TAX on all life, including humankind, possible in the future.

    There is nothing beneficial about this TAX, it will not stop emissions, will put Australians out of work, make Australia less competitive internationally, will reduce the standard of living worst for those who can least afford it and is the basis of a population control agenda.

    I implore you to consider the negative impacts of this proposed TAX and vote against its introduction for the benefits of your constituents and for all current and future Australians.

    Sincerely,

    Gino

    These jokers are out of control and can not be trusted to operate in the interests of the finacial well-being of the country and its citizens. What a complete waste of time a carbon tax is. Combet - parachuted from the ACTU into an electorate in the safest labour seat in NSW, burning the sitting member just so he could . . . what? Deflect the heat from Garret and Rudd on the insane insulation program and ram a carbon tax down our throats. At least you know that when he says he isn't going to do something he simply can not be trusted (http://www.theage.com.au/news/natio...g-for-safe-seat/2007/03/25/1174761282580.html , http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/11/24/2100306.htm). I guess he's just pragmatic.

    Combet's carbon tax roadshow needs to be more than hot air
