  1. Domestic Politics

    Now bring forward the 2024 tax cuts just to rub it in
  2. Domestic Politics

    Yeah the fucking boys! Socialisim, Australia says no.

    Well I suppose it depends on your definition of low income, but the point where the most significant subsidy cuts and marginal tax rates occur is at what I would classify as middle incomes. But that's exactly the point, unless we're going to go through all the possible permutations, the lack of transparency makes it hard to say.

    Just to elaborate on this, the problem is that it's not just the income tax rate, it's that there are so many things targeting people on middle class incomes. Firstly you have tax offsets for low income, so their tax rate isn't as high as the tax brackets suggest, where as middle and high income earners don't get this. Then you have the MLS, where someone earning just 90k+ a year has to either pay an extra 2% tax or buy health insurance they don't need. Speaking of health insurance, the subsidies fall off pretty quickly as well around that mark. Then you have all the benefits that get cut as well, eg things like childcare subsidy etc. The net effect is that middle income earners face marginal tax rates of 100%+ in some cases. All taxes and/or lack of subsidy based on income should be bundled into the income tax rates, for transparency reasons, and to ensure there aren't cases where ludicrous marginal tax rates are in effect, causing massive economic inefficiency.

    Nothing interesting in the federal election unless Shorten manages to throw it away somehow, which he is having a good crack at. Whole thing is pretty shit, tired of the government putting it's hand out left, right, and center once you make more money than the average person, and Labor is going to take it even further. But what can you do, just make even more or go to a low tax country for a few years.
  6. I wonder...

    Yeah that's definitely the default after midnight (not sure exact time but think it's midnight). Main road has green until sensor on side road is triggered, or sensor for turning from main road.
  7. I wonder...

    If it's just consultants, that's 350+ years of man hours at a generous $2000 a day. 100 people for 3.5 years? Not sure what other costs are involved aside from people time on something like this.
  8. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    TTIM : People taking advantage of the Christchurch events to spew so much irrational leftist propaganda that's irrelevant to the events that have happened. Eg, Apparently the reason this all happened in 2019 in NZ is because John Howard won the 2001 election in Australia??? If anything these events should show the pitfalls of irrational, hypocritical, and opportunistic politics.
  9. I wonder...

    I wonder why MJ being a pedo is now a big thing. There is nothing new here, everyone knew what he was unless they're an idiot or a lier. I can't tell you why he never got the hate he deserved previously, probably too big a star back then and then he died and that was that, but this whole new media frenzy all of a sudden because of some doco is just bizarre.
  10. Unpopular Opinions That You Have.

    The problem is, in my experience, at least 85% of the population lack the intellectual capacity to be trusted to analyse and interpret the facts to then be able to decide someone's future. Should be a cutoff based on IQ.
  11. TTDIM: Things that don't irk me

    So I haven't been paying too much attention to the whole thing, but I keep seeing references to 6 minutes without any background in the news, how has it been established that on a day 20+ years ago that there were precisely 6 minutes that the offences could have occured in?
  12. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    Mate, you can't fool me, I was there recently. Saw all the things in your photos in the first half a day. By the 3rd day I dudnt want to leave my hotel, nothing to see or do. Brisbane is okay, but a large pissant town none the less. Australia only has 2 cities.
  13. The find a job thread

    Anyone know a php developer, ideally with Drupal experience? Need to hire some immediately, tier 1 global employer, $$$ in line with experience.
  14. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    Yeah it's trash, probably paid $2m+ for it too.

    You must have worked at the bottom rung of those industries.
