It would probably be hard-pressed to think of anyone you know who voluntarily paid more taxes than they’re required. And would you really want to know someone like that, anyhow?

Normal people know thousands of other ways to better spend their hard-earned money than giving a donation to their government. There are thousands of charities, one could invest in their community, pay off debt, buy a car, buy a candy bar, or even invest in their super.

The seeds were planted early this year after the Fair Work Commission halted a NSW Rail Strike that was voted for by only 6% of the unions rail workers via a txt poll.

To say the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) is creating a straw man argument to justify holding hostage the Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), would be giving straw men from all walks of ideology a bad name. A few irresponsible MUA leaders have suspended reality by blaming VICT for not hiring a causal employee and failing to acknowledge it is a Federal law that bars VICT from doing so. This is not a straw man, I’m not sure if this is even misdirection, its pure anger just for the sake of being angry.
