Commenting on the story: Treasurer wants over-65s to keep working

“Maybe Josh will now legislate for all companies to be required to have, at least, 15% of their employees over the age of 60.”

 Your words, Robert McCormick – and what brilliant words they are.

Finally, somebody who puts a meaningful KPI under the populist grandstanding of professional politicians looking for future votes.

It’s such a shame that true accountability never gets oxygen in the political diatribe that spreads like an ink-stain from Canberra.

Every man and his dog knows that age and employability doesn’t pass the pub test.

 In the words of someone great from our past, put up or shut up, Mr Frydenberg. – Kevin Whitford

Commenting on the story: What about me? SA energy firm laments lack of media interest

A credibility gap? I understood this process (underground coal gasification) had been banned in Queensland. – David Sutton

Commenting on the story: US committee backs decriminalising, taxing marijuana

The divide between liberal and conservative on this topic seems to be widening instead of narrowing.

There is no discussion from the conservatives who seem to be cemented in their opposition.

Eleven states in the USA  (includng California) have legalised the personal use cannabis for adults (21 year olds).

There is a facility in the eastern states crowing cannabis for medicine for export, not local consumption.

The financial benefits are there for the government, not only in taxation, but in jobs created and zero legal costs.

I find it counterintuitive that a government with the philosophy that life revolves around money should forego the opportunity to reduce standing taxes.

User pays. – Mark Eckermann.
