Franklin Roosevelt figured that a balanced budget was one of the keys to solving the Great Depression.

Yet another treasurer bows to the gods of “the balanced budget” and “the surplus”.

A balanced budget is not necessarily good.

Most of the dreary comrade societies aimed at a balanced budget – “We take 100% of your income and spend it all”.

There is only one tax on the people and that is government spending.

The treasurer needs to slash that big tax.

All else is flummery.

I am only an ignorant female who doesn’t know much about grids etc, but it seems to me that power grids are in their death throes because certain groups want it that way.I am talking about the UN, Marxists, greens, NWO…all those who want Australia to become a level playing field or lower.

I had an Uncle who smoked rollys all his life, which ended at age 90. Geez I’d love a drag. I might take it up again in my indulgent old age.

Yep, Pie – so very true! Been orf tha durries (roll yer own fer most of 55 yeers) fer about 5 yeers. Feel good, every thing works well, wouldn’t know I had been a smoker – EXCEPT for the fact that I’ve put on 16 kg and had to frequent Vinnies Mens Outfitters to retain some semblance of sartorial elegance in my twilight years.

Most who have given up smoking will know that you develop a ravenous appetite.

yes Viv..balanced budgets are a myth..created to disguise the fraud that is fiat currency and income tax.(which is illegal in Australia by the way)..and a private mafia cartel which owns the money supply…the Govt SHOULD be able to print whatever is required for it to perform its duties of governing…budgeting is irrelevant..they print what they need…but under the Rothschild extortion fraudulent Fiat system..it has to run to the Zio Bankers and say give us more money..and then they indebted the citizens to the rothschilds..that in itself is a clear case of fraud…naturally no-one in the media or politics even bothers… Read more »

jackass… Actually you smoke, then die, and then stop worrying about weight/ wait (whatever)

In a word…YES. After you purchase tobacco/cigs you can’t afford to buy food, therefor you starve and lose wait. Simple yes?

What happens when they run out of fiat money? The last thing that is cut is the salaries and perks of politicians. The rest of it will default to anarchy, poverty, civil war and chaos. In the end, as in all the previous revolutions that have happened over the last millenia, the people who have been compromised, robbed, taxed to death, beaten and abused will find these politicians and deal with them accordingly. Even a tax haven overseas won’t be sufficient to hide them. They will be found. History will repeat itself.

Going broke in any formula ends in extraordinary pain, particularly for the people. The people must demand governments of all persuasion end their term with no negative debt, for to fail to do so sets the process in play which ends in bankrupcy.

Government spending with waste, inefficiency, perks, greed and a smidgeon of corruption which gets exposed every now and again but hever eliminated.
