#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.

Gouging Insurance Premiums and possible State levies await Solar Panels.

Gouging Insurance Premiums and possible State levies await Solar Panels.

In the enthusiasm to install Federal Government subsidized Solar Panels, prospective owners of these Solar Panels may have forgotten two lessons of history. They are the gouging by Insurers and State Governments.

1. Gouging by Insurers.

Indeed,  the Installed Value of the Solar Panels must be included into the Home Content Values of the insured address.

The panels are in exceptionally exposed, easily damaged or stolen positions. Therefore Home Contents Insurers may require a premium worth about 3% of the Installed Value of the Solar Panels. For a $10,000AUD installed system, the premium would be about $300AUD a year.

However, Insurers may not use this easy argument but charge the maximum the market can bear. This has happened with turbo charged small engined cars. The result was that those cars had to pay higher premium than non-turbo cars with equivalent maximum power rating. For that case the market for turbo-charged small engined cars had collapsed.

So owners of Solar Panels should be prepared for the next move by Insurers.

2. State levies on Solar light received.

England has plenty of traditional houses with small windows. It was not that Englishmen did not know to build large windows but there was taxes based on the areas of windows of each house and Englishmen tried to reduce their tax liabilities.

Houses in Victoria, Australia generally do not have rain-water storage tanks (of the type used in Queensland, Australia). This is also due to State levies on rain water even when collected in private lands. Collection of these levies have now been discussed in Melbourne metropolitan area after the threat of the drought has subsided.

The precedents are there, do you think that the State Government of Victoria, Australia would ignore its easy to grab Levies on Solar Energy received ?

The State may arrogantly set the levies at 50% of local retail price of electricity. Who would be able to stop it? The State may say that it needs the money for its non-stop empire buiding!

3. Prospective Solar Panel Owners should beware of nasty surprises.

Everything is rosy when the Governments sell you. Once a marketing aim has been reached, the nasty surprises may surface.

When making calculations on the Return On Investments, prospective owners of Panels should consider Insurance Premiums and Possible State Levies on Solar Light along with their maintenance, wear and tear on the system.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 1: Motorvehicle Insurance Scammers.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 1: Motorvehicle Insurance Scammers

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 1: Motorvehicle Insurance Scammers.

If you have ever been to Vietnam, you will see more than 40 million motorbikes on the roads. They go on their daily routines, occasionally causing minor accidents and damage but people don’t threaten their road sharers with law suits. Owning a motorbike there is thus mostly an advantage and very rarely a liability (it is so only when the owner is outrageously stupid). How can they do that and why cannot Westerners do it?
They can do it because they have not been brainwashed and enslaved by Vehicle Insurance Parasites.

1. The Vietnamese way of handling non-fatal traffic accidents.


1a. If you lose a small paint scratch then consider it part of wear and tear of a quickly depreciating asset. You have to be tolerant to the other party who may be inexperienced just like you years ago, when you were young, or may be just like your kids.
1b. If you lose a turn indicator lamp then consider who has more damage and remain tolerant:
If the other party suffers no damage and is clearly at fault then ask him to pay a realistic repair cost to you right on the spot.
On the other hand, if he suffers much more damage than you do then consider that you have been lucky not to get hurt and he has already been taught a good traffic lesson.
1c. If your motorbike is badly damage:
You may ask the other party to pay for the actual repair costs and usually he will agree to it or beg you to let him pay by installments or only part of it.
You should think that accident avoidance is the responsibility of both him and YOU. Be tolerant and consider who suffers more damage.

2. The Enslaved Litigious English way of handling non-fatal traffic accidents.


2a. If you lose a small paint scratch then force the other party to follow a costly legal course of arguments to assign faults and threaten the other party with a law suit to take away his house. On the other hand, if you are at fault, you still employ a lawyer to reply to the other party that you won’t pay even a single cent for his fair repairs cost.
2b. If you lose a turn indicator lamp then take your vehicle to a shop that will try to assign hundreds of small previous wear and tear to the accident and ask the other party to pay for all that. You will hope to have a partially brand new vehicle after those repairs.
The reality would turn out that the shop WILL POCKET most of the costs and you will ONLY have the main damage shoddily repaired: You have been used by the repairer to scam money on the poor other party! Do you want to sue the repairer (your former partner in crime!) now?
2c. If your motorbike is badly damaged:
You may ask the other party to pay for the (often pretended) psychological damage for fear of traffic, plus inflated repair costs.

3. Where does the money go in the Enslaved Litigious English World?


3a. You pay the lawyers to threaten one another unnecessarily. All of you are forced to join insurance schemes and pay their excessive costs to avoid being threatened.
3b. You pay the lawyers to play expensive legal games. You also pay excessive repair costs to non-existent repairs.
3c. You pay the lawyers to play legal games to rip off other insurance contributors on pretended psychological injuries. You also pay excessive repair costs to non-existent repairs.
(See references [1,2]).

4. Parasites ripping-off your transportation system.


You now know why transportation costs are so expensive in English speaking White countries. There are parasites feeding on your transportation costs, you are enslaved into paying annual insurance premiums that is about 5 times the cost of the actual repairs if paid out directly by owners instead.
There used to be Mutual typed Insurance Companies (AMP, Colonial Mutual, NRMA) which are not for profit organizations (such as NRMA motor vehicle Insurance for member). The financiers had successfully used immoral ways to rip off the Mutual funds to give money contributed by many previous generations of members to directors and fund members at that only time. The rip off was called “Demutualization” (around 1995 in Australia). Those mutual insurers were then wound up to leave the market to only for profit insurers. Without competition from those non-profit organizations, insurance premiums have shot up.
You should demand a law reform to reduce the legal rip-offs by transport insurance schemes.
I am no fan of the political system in Vietnam but I admire the way the population there cooperates in their daily commutation. At least, each Westerner should experience the rip-off free transportation system in Vietnam (before it become infected by the Insurance associated parasites) to know how much you have been ripped-off by the parasites..
It should be remembered that a fish won’t know that it is in water unless it can somehow, sometimes jump out of the water.
