    Default Australia - are we doomed?

    1. Debt - the Rudd Government increased Debt to $75 billion. Subsequent and the current Government have increased Debt to $650 billion.

    2. Immigration - our Country and it's infrastructure is bursting at the seems. Hospitals, Housing, Water, Roads etc are all struggling to hold the current population levels, yet we are bringing more and more in. A lot of Immigrants going onto Welfare, Public Housing and varioius gov. programs we can't afford now.

    3. Political Correctness - we can't assert our values or sense of right and wrong without being viewed as racist.

    4.....
    5....


    Happy Friday morning

    Not all of us are doomed.

    1. Dumb westerners buy cheap Asian products... Asians get richer, the westerners get poorer and can't understand why.

    "Rich" Asians appreciate good produce and are prepared to pay for it.

    I'm happy.

    2. Migration only affects cities. No one in a town can even imagine living out of town.

    I'm happy.

    3. Political correctness is frustrating but it evaporates once you get into the timber too.

    The debt one is beyond my understanding but I expect quite a bit of turmoil as debts get unwound somewhere in the future. I just get the feeling that they will find new ways to postpone the smash.

    Wherever the pain finally settles will be a bleak place to live for a long while.

    Couldn't find a link to a page explaining the Debt issue (money Gov has borrowed through Bonds etc and has to pay back) but apparently it's already out to $500 billion with Morrison signing off on increasing it $650 billion.


    Power. @Darkoz; had to sip his Dom Perignon in the dark (Dark in da dark) as the Power in S.A. is unreliable due to "Green Power". If we do go Nuclear they say it'll take 15 years to get a Nuclear Power Plant going @Shrek;




    So moving to the Country might be the best bet @bull; ? I reckon @Big Mick; would love to have me as a neighbour Fuck livin next door to Baz, he'd have you working as slave labour

    I understand how they borrow, I just don't know much about the issues that cause it. I know there are demographic factors and structural problems in the economy and a host of unrealistic expectations in the voting public. You have to disappoint a lot of people to get debt under control.

    Country debt I can't do anything about so im not going to spend much energy worrying about it. Apart from that most of the problems revolve around living in the cities with all the lefty flogs. Those places are soul destroying. Talking with the mrs I wouldnt mind moving further out in the sticks. Build a small house running on solar. I don't want any neighbors near me.

    Kids bringing ipads to my sons birthday party last week made me ponder...

    The next generation are already fucked and the rot set in with entitled kunce waiting for post war parents to die so they could live large on the back of the people who actually made this country great without sacrificing one fucking thing themselves all the while moaning about how expensive life is while watching an LCD tv in every room of their 40sq inner suburbs home in between driving their bratty kids to interpretive dance classes in one of two brand new SUV's and waiting at the coffee shop twitfacing to their equally fascile friends about how good their 20 dollar sandwich is which they paid for by credit card.

    How about every second news article with 22 year old flogs complaing about house prices and how it's wrong that they can't afford a house on the beach in Bondi. Could do what every other generation has done and buy where you can afford and then work and invest to save and buy where you want to live later on. But it's the everyone's a winner generation where just because you want something that is a good enough reason why you should have it. Working towards things is off the table.
