Presently on news.com.au:
“WHY are households still struggling to make ends meet when we have more cash?”
Gee, I wonder if it has anything to do with the massively increasing gap between wealthy and poor in this country, where the “average” income rises due to the inflated wealth of the people at the top, but simultaneously more people are living on less.
Don’t worry, News didn’t investigate that possibility at all. (Although it did acknowledge that most of this supposed increase in “average” wealth was for those who own real estate and have significant superannuation.)
BONUS STUPID QUESTION: Another reason why Graham Young’s “Online Opinion” has become a complete joke – he publishes the embarrassing droning of dullards. Here’s the bonus stupid question, from that site:
What inspired the government to soften the laws concerning unauthorised boat arrivals in 2008 is anyone’s guess, but it appears that a naïve belief that boat arrivals would not significantly increase as a result was an underlying factor.
“Anyone’s guess”? How moronic would someone have to be – from either side of politics – not to understand “what inspired the government to soften” the cruel (and, it turns out, quite unlawful) Howard government “Pacific Solution”? They would have to have never read anything by anyone advocating for refugees. They would have to have never even considered the possibility that locking up refugees and then sending them overseas to wait indefinitely while their claims were slowly processed could do them any harm, or that anyone could actually care for these people.
I’m surprised anyone who could ask that question has the mental capacity to operate a keyboard for long enough to spew out that sort of drivel.
