Taxpayers of no consequence

…from the quill of Antisthenes

As if any further proof of Brown-Gillard’s clique’s utter contempt for citizens of this country was needed, their government has limited the time for public to make submissions on the proposed new tax to just one week. Alternatively, they may have very high opinion of the intelligence of the electorate for to read about 1,100 pages of tax legalese and to draft a sensible submission thereon would be a task worthy of a last century Oxford/Cambridge educated public servant. In the panic to save their jobs, or the world, whichever comes first, they even dispensed with the usual public hearings about the proposed legislation. Of course, the taxpayers of no consequence could try to attend.

Undoubtedly, the Get Up, Get Down, But Always Left clowns would hurry to save the world and organise “grass roots” submissions. It is likely they got orders to organise them well in advance. Your submission can be short and ought to be sweet. If I were to write that I disposed of all my AGW materials upon hearing Julia Gillard’s solemn promise NOT to introduce the silly tax, I would not be believed. You may get away with that.

The submissions are to be sent to Joint Select Committee at jscacefl@aph.gov.au by Thursday the 22nd September, 2011. Apparently on the official government web site – http://www.aph.gov.au/house/committee/ one can find instructions, but when I tried, the site did not work. Do not jump to unwarranted conclusions – would any government which Julia Gillard leads do anything dishonest?

 

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
