#Australia, #bushfire, #greenies, #water tank, #conservation, #insurance, #taxation allowance, #tax deductions, #climate change,

The catastrophic bushfire in Australia has been used by greenies in their propaganda war as a result of climate change. Actually it would not happen in some country with responsible governments and with backbones against greenies.

1. Bushfire in Australia is unstoppable because water tanks harvesting rainwater in farms have been targeted and taxed to their extinction.

The taxes bring in revenues for local governments which are often greedy and wasteful.

2. Bushfire in Australia is unstoppable because water supply from ground or streams have been deliberately throttled by governments under the guise of conservation of the environment.

This is to please greenies.

3. Bushfire in Australia keeps repeating because farmers and home owners cannot rebuild any differently with payout money from insurance.

There should be legislations forcing insurers to allow fire victims to claim the full insurance payouts and rebuild their house differently. Unfortunately, Australian politicians are more concerned with the interests of insurers than with fire victims.

4. Bushfire in Australia keeps repeating because farmers have no adequate taxation allowance for acquiring and maintenance of own fire fighting and auxilliary equipment such as private bulldozers, water tankers, drones, communication centers.

5. Bushfire in Australia keeps repeating because farmers cannot claim tax deductions from their income on the construction of anti-fire moats, ditches or levees around their buildings.

6. Bushfire in Australia keeps repeating because farmers cannot carry out burning off at will and have to preserve tall flammable trees near their buildings. This is due the “conservation laws” enacted to please greenies. These laws stopped farmers from burning off around their farms.

7. Fire services, emergency services in Australia had been starved of funds because governments use tax money to instead pamper politicians and to fund their political support groups.

Conclusions.

The current fires in Australia are caused mostly by inappropriate policies applied over a long period. Climate change has not played any significant role.

Australia should look at poorer countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Central American and South American and learn how they have effectively fought their bushfire.

The Commission wants the Government to roughly quadruple the amount of controlled burning it undertakes.

It has also recommended parts of Victoria’s ageing electricity infrastructure be upgraded to reduce the risk of fires.

The report has also flagged a program of voluntary acquisition for homes in high-risk areas.

A total of 173 people were killed and thousands were left homeless when bushfires swept across Victoria on February 7, 2009.

“It’s really simple,” says Brian Williams, captain of the Kurrajong Heights bushfire brigade, a veteran of 44 years … “Fires run on fuel. Limited fuel means limited fire.”

It is true The Greens have developed a new set of “aims” including a caveat-studded “effective and sustainable strategy for fuel-reduction management”.

In practice, on the ground, it amounts to covert opposition. Williams scoffs at the Orwellian sophistry: “They publicly say they support it. The reality of how it pans out is nothing like that. Greens have two faces and underneath they are undermining everything.”

Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce is blaming the Greens for the amount of fuel being burned in this week’s bushfires.

Mr Joyce says that Greens policies have meant farmers have been stopped from doing as much hazard reduction burning in the lead-up to fire season.

[6]. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-12-20/hazard-reduction-burns-bushfires/11817336

Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce pointed to three major “issues” that he said needed to be addressed: access to the fires, central watering points, and a lack of hazard reduction burns. The latter he blamed largely on current conservation laws.

Federal Resources Minister Matthew Canavan, as recently as last week, referred to the “bogey man of climate change” which he said was being used to distract from the failure of the states to manage fire risks.

“The Queensland Government taking powers off farmers, taking their rights off them to be able to manage their own land, put in fire breaks, do cool burns, and that has exposed us to much much higher risk than we should,” he said.

Australian State of Victoria signed a confidential MoU with China (Oct 25), signing up to its trillion dollar infrastructure called Belt and Road.

Source: Scott Morrison criticises Victoria’s secret deal with China, https://www.9news.com.au/2018/11/06/15/26/scott-morrison-victoria-china-secret-deal

This Victorian Labor State Government is still under investigation for misuse of tax money for the election campaign of Labor Party [2].

So the transparency index [3] of Australia may come down !

Previously there was a controversial lease of Port Darwin to a Chinese company for 99 years [4].

This fits the pattern given in [5] and [6].

Peta Credlin: Yesterday, it … emerged that one of ­Andrews’ key staff was a “special consultant” to a local organisation, the Shenzhen Association of Australia, that is guided by the Chinese Communist Party.

The original sale of the 99-year lease over the Port of Darwin did not require FIRB approval and was only considered by the Defence Department at a junior level even though, as Australia’s most northerly port, it was considered a vital strategic asset.

These laws have since changed after the sale exposed major gaps in the national security considerations around the sale of critical infrastructure assets to foreign buyers and former US President Barack Obama raised concerns about the deal.

The ex-analyst said the action should be taken in response to New Zealand’s prime ministers’ denials of any influence attempts by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Both Australia and Zealand have been hosting intense discussions over CCP influence.

Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 170).

Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

There is currently a sabotage of the food farming industry of Australia.
#needle in strawberries, #needles in apples, #needles in bananas, #Australia, #economic sabotage, #terrorism.

Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

1. Needles in fruits.

The saboteurs inserted sewing needles into the fruits destined for wholesome consumption.

First it was discovered that some strawberries sold in punnets in Woolworth and Coles supermarkets in New South Wales and Victoria have sewing needles inserted in them. The affected batches are traced to a farm in Queensland near to Brisbane.

While the case is still unsolved there are many more similar cases which are suspected to be “copy cats”. Now there are cases of needles found in apples and bananas.

2. Terrorism ?

The Prime Minister of Australia compared the action of those involved to terrorism.[5]

The event cannot kill many people and cannot instill fear so it does not qualify as acts of terrorism. Nevertherless it is clearly an economic sabotage.

This is obvious as observed by a strawberry farmer:
” But he felt for those who were supplying the big stores, and were now being forced to dump stock… I went to the markets and the price went from say $1.50, $2 down to 50 cents, he said. ” [6]

3. Following the money.

In the current event, the losers are the strawberry (and possibly apple and banana) Farmers, Distributors and Supermarkets and indirectly the national revenue. Seasonal Tourist Fruit-pickers from Western Countries may also face tougher employment requirements.

The benefitors are PROSPECTIVE BUYERS OF Australian FARMS, Suppliers for exporters of the fruits involved, Importers of competing canned fruits. Foreign owners of fruit farms in Australia may use the sabotage as an excuse to apply for their status of PROHIBITED, FOREIGN OWNED AUTONOMOUS FARMS.

So the readers can now guess how powerful may the organizer be behind this national scale sabotage.

4. What is expected from the Government ?

The Australian government should try its best to catch the organizer of this economic sabotage.

Strawberry Farmers should be compensated for their loss of sale by the Federal government as the sabotage may be carried out by a powerful force against individual Australian farmers.

Government should strengthen the laws on ownership of Australian farms [8, 9, 10] to ensure that foreign sabotage brings no benefit to foreign saboteurs. Domestic saboteurs will get caught eventually.

Government should guide people on methods of consuming those fruits without risking harms from the current sabotage by needles.

5. What can consumers do ?

Consumers should help Australian farmers by consuming those fruits with safer processes. They may have to resort to

a/- Slicing strawberries into thin slices before serving.

b/- Slicing apples into small cubes before serving.

c/- Slicing bananas into thin slices before serving.

d/- Scanning fruits with sensitive metal detectors (Preferably installed by supermarkets at their fruit stalls for use by customers.). Currently metal detectors are only installed at wholesalers.

6. Conclusion.

It may sound far fetched but it may be possible that the sabotage may be organized by some powerful (and possibly foreign) force desiring to weaken Australia and its strategic farmers (to acquire their farms ?).

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 159).

This blog aims to bring to light the reasons for higher than normal per capita cost of health care for immigrants. This higher than normal cost is caused by the attitude of immigrant patients as well as immigrant health care providers. The higher than normal cost should be noted in any budgeting by any government working with a migrant population.

This blog gives my first hand observation and the details drawn from my conversations with some people of immigrant communities.

#migrant, #immigrant, #immigration, #give-me-gration, #Australia, #health case, #abuse, #unnecessary medical check up

The abuse of health care system by some immigrants in Australia.

1. The cost overrun in health care.

Australia has been a lucky country with large areas for agriculture and fishery, abundance of minerals for extraction, small population to divide the benefits but the country has been crying poor [1-2g]. The cause for this is MISMANAGEMENTS in many fields, with abuse to health care service (at 9.5% of GDP in 2011–12, “was slightly above average compared with other OECD countries” [9] while “It was also noted that Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander peoples experienced worse health than non-Indigenous Australians” [10]) the most easily seen.

2. Incorrect attitude from some migrants.

When a country such as Australia accept new immigrants, the country requires the contribution from the new prospective citizens. However, due to some reasons, many immigrants to Australia have the following incorrect attitude which is detrimental to the country:

-Some immigrants think that the country only needs to increase its counting of heads of its citizens like counting the number of soldiers before a battle.

-Some immigrants think that Immigration only means GIVE-ME-gration. They think that the country has too much money and is in urgent need to spend the money before it got crushed to death by the weight of its gold. The reality is the country has spent too much on migrants that there is inadequate care for its existing and retired workers who had contributed to the building up of the country. So the country has been blamed as breaking the moral contract with its existing citizens and with its indigenous, Aboriginal “First Australians” [2].

-Some immigrants think that they can channel the wealth of the host country to their former countries. They cannot tell where to draw the line between what the host country can do for them and what it can NOT do for their former countries.

-Some immigrants doctors want to get rich quick to catch up with the wealth built up over many generations of native doctors.

2. Abuse of health care service by immigrant patients.

Some immigrants have the habit to go to their doctors from the same country of origin for everything medical or not: health problem, certifying their administrative papers (for non-medical purposes such as for banking, citizenship, driving license and travel), translating their administrative papers (for non-medical purposes such as for banking, citizenship, driving license and travel). They cover that unhealthy access to health care cost by tacking the service at the end of their (unnecessary) “medical check ups”.

Some immigrants are unemployed, feel lonely, fear death and sickness so they want to have someone to talk to. Instead of going to coffee bars they go to the medical office of their ethnicity. Some make regular “medical check ups” TWICE weekly.

Some immigrants want to buy subsidized prescription medicines to bring back to their home countries for use by someone else.

3. Abuse of health care service by immigrant service providers.

Some immigrants health care service providers (doctors and nurses) do carry out illegal practice of certifying their administrative papers, translating their administrative papers tacked at the end of (unnecessary) “medical check ups”..

Some immigrants health care service providers ask their immigrant patients to make unnecessary visits:

-Asking patients to come back for “medical check ups” after diagnosis of simple seasonal influenza infection.

-Asking patients to come back for “medical check ups” just to be told that they have very good results for their blood test .

4. Conclusion.

Excessive spending on health care is unjustified, especially when it is done marginally fraudulently. National budget will be blown up and there will be no money left for anything else.

Australian government should urgently reform its health care rules and regulations to stop the abuse cited above.

A COMPULSORY co-contribution of about $5 per doctor visit may be able to reduce the number of unnecessary visits and make the national health budget healthy again [11]. (The co-contributions should be directly deducted from the coming benefit payment of the patients to avoid the doctor voiding the obligation of his patients.)

Inevitable bursting of Real Estate Bubbles in Australian inner cities.

Inevitable bursting of Real Estate Bubbles in Australian inner cities.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 158).

#Real Estate, #property market, #bubble, #bursting, #crash, #Australia.

Inevitable bursting of Real Estate Bubbles in Australian inner cities.

As the Central Banks of major countries send interest rates slightly positive, property owners who have not been verse in calculating return and risks may have to carry out fire sales as they cannot afford the interest payment on the mortgage taken to buy those properties.

1. Owners have bought at the top of the market and there are few new buyers.

Figure: A bubble in any Real Estate Market is not much different from the bubbles in Share Markets.

There are reasons to think that Australian Real Estates are currently overpriced:

Some unseasoned owners had been tricked by Real Estate agents that Chinese immigrants would keep coming in, bringing with them gold and fortunes from China to buy up local Australian over-priced properties.

The Chinese government is not stupid to let corrupt officials move their ill-gotten wealth oversea through bank transfer.

Any undocumented money transferred to USA or Australia will be considered drug money by USA or Australia and will be confiscated by USA or America.

There is also a worry of loss of national identities that rises against high influx immigration, this will reduce current very high level of immigration.

2. Properties have been sold at more than economic utility values.

People only buy a property to have a place to rest and sleep and to go for work in the next day. When property prices are too high people don’t buy there, they will just go another extra hour or so to a cheaper area where they live with their families.

New train lines can bring people further from city centers and this lure new home owners into new suburbs opened up by new train lines. This will keep down property prices in the centers of existing cities.

3. Bank interest may go up, triggering the fire sales.

When bank interest was 0.1% or even negative people can borrow any outrageous amount of money with no worry. When interest start rising, they have to do the real work of paying the interest. This is when people have to do a fire sale to get back the money to discharge their mortgage. The problem is worse for people who used LOW DOC loans to borrow more (by overstating their incomes and currently owned assets) than they can actually afford in the long term.

The ones who sell late may lose a lot. There may be quite a rush at selling out all properties bought at outrageous price with borrowed money.

4. Federal Capital Gain Tax is applied with dishonest indexation.

When a property are sold, owners are usually liable to Capital Gain Tax. The index has not been honestly set by governments resulting in property investors having to pay more capital gain tax than on their actual capital gain.

5. Federal government policies to reduce insufficiency of housing.

To make more housing available to the population, the government may have a number of rule:

a. Foreigners cannot buy properties and have to divest from Australian Real Estates.

b. New kind of tax on unused rooms in properties (taxes on empty rooms) has been contemplated.

6. Local governments becoming parasites feeding on property owners.

To make the matter worse, many local governments in charge of day-to-day issues have now fed on property owners like leeches. They have forgotten how to run their main day to day tasks of:

Collecting rubbish,

Maintaining local roads, parks

Maintaining primary schools, kindergartens, child health care centers.

The service should only be based on their costs. There is no reason why council rates should be based on property values.

Now the councils (local governments) enjoy imposing outrageous “rates” on property owners to fund oversea trips of councilors, talking on World scale issues (like Global Warming), promoting ideologies (like LGBT campaigning, changing traffic signs to reflect feminist and LGBT promotion).

Councils now pay outrageous salaries to their top employees. The justification for that is NOT due to the quality or quantity of the work done by those employees but by the values of “rates” collected as a percentage of property prices in the councils! This is outrageous.[4]

7. A booming population of parasites feedings on property owners.

A number of properties owners have now offloaded their properties due to parasitic practice against property owners:

a. Some tradesmen now quotes repairs, construction prices not based on their parts and labors but on the value of the property they attend to !

b. Body Corporates of communal housing (which was designed to have low running costs) specializing in giving blown up costs to rip off unit owners (who thought that communal lives bring saving).

c. Real Estate Agents now are not professional but only of flight by night quality. Many now specialize in ripping off property owners with overblown maintenance and management fees.

8. Conclusion.

There will be a scramble for the exit on property ownership. The next bank interest increase may efficiently trigger it.
