'Death and Taxes' Takes on New Meaning in Australia



Activist Post

Beyond the fact that nothing is certain but death and taxes, Australia wants to be sure that even when you die you cannot escape your contribution to the corporate globalist State.

On July 1st, 2012, Australia became the latest among more than a dozen countries to implement a nationwide carbon tax, known as The Clean Energy Legislative Package.  Beyond the allotted price of $23.78 per ton of carbon emissions levied on companies, the real cost of the tax is beginning to be felt by homeowners and businesses.  According to Australian writer Andrew Puhanic:



  Firstly, the immediate impact of a carbon tax will be felt by charitable organizations. The Salvation Army, one of Australia’s largest charitable organizations, has revealed that a carbon tax will cost them an additional $3.5 million dollars and that this could impact on the services they provide to about 300,000 people a year of which includes emergency accommodation and drug and alcohol counseling.

  Secondly, to make matters even worse for charitable organisations and ordinary Australians, electricity companies are refusing to tell struggling families and businesses exactly how much the carbon tax will add to their power bills . . . The Australian federal government estimates electricity prices will increase by up to 10 per cent when the tax kicks in on July 1, 2012, however there have been reports that electricity prices will in fact increase by up to 20% and more.

When Erica Maliki and her family went to bury their father-in-law in Melbourne, they experienced firsthand the economic impact, even to cemeteries.  According to the family, a $55 charge was levied for the burial plot, after which they were told that "even the dead don't escape the carbon tax." Springvale Cemetery officially apologized for the insensitive comment, while vehemently denying that there was any extra carbon tax charge.  However, they admitted that that their prices did increase - curiously on July 1st - due to "inflation." (Source)

Despite a 62% opposition by the Australian people, the Australian government has pushed full-steam ahead with a scheme that is sure to impede economic progress, while doing next to nothing to combat a problem that is debatable to exist in the first place.


Rather than encourage open debate, the government has attempted to implement draconian penalties and surveillance by "carbon cops" to thwart vocal opposition, including a purported $1.1 million fine for shops and restaurants if waiters or staff blame price increases on the carbon tax. Perhaps cemeteries received the same memo about the "tax whose name cannot be spoken." (Source)

Regardless of whether or not one believes the science and politics behind climate change; as the video below highlights, the solutions that are being offered come from the same cabal of central bankers that have devastated the global economy through their continued Ponzi-scheme economic model designed to benefit speculators, not the global economy or environment.

Worse, there is no upper limit to their latest scheme, which is set to go global by 2015 and supersede national sovereignty.  It is this element of control in the hands of morally compromised companies like JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs that needs to be resisted first, so that we can return to a more transparent and honest debate about the true effects of human productivity upon Earth's landscape.

Are Carbon Taxes ..... Contributing in California to the Cities Fiscal I

Are Carbon Taxes, Political Correctness and Nanny State Policies Contributing in California to the Cities Fiscal Implosion?  

The Watchdog | July 16, 2012 - 9:16 AM | Uncategorized


The power to tax is the power to destroy. Taxes are a necessary evil to keep a limited government working to serve the people. Politicians love taxes as a social engineering tool to control the behavior of a certain group of people. Many people do not marry because the marriage penalty is a good example. Now it is coming to the point now where taxes have become destructive to the economy and people.  The people are now acting to avoid the taxes, some will outright revolt then pay.

California in more ways then one killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. They are chasing people out of the state. Many bossiness once based in the golden state are relocating to places like Texas and other right to work states that have less restrictive taxes and regulations. People are also leaving California in droves and coming to places like Austin Texas and other states that is less expensive to live.

California politics have gone insane. They cannot control spending and the seek to control everything.  They are taxing the producers and the people with capital. They are passing nanny state laws and more restrictive regulations that further stifle job growth and innovation. Who wants to invest in California right now? Illegal aliens are putting a strain on the infrastructure and the social services system at a staggering cost to the taxpayers. With an economy so anemic and fragile. They pass the carbon tax in California that is forcing the rise in prices for everything from food to fuel. Retailers are forced to pass on the cost to the consumers which hurts both business and the costumer.

We see cities like Stockton and San Bernadino with a multitude of cities filing for bankruptcy protection. Many municipalities are facing a fiscal nightmare. We cannot blame carbon taxes for the total fiscal failures. Many of these cities decided to tax people by citation. Many Police departments ran away business from the downtown area causing local merchants to shut down because people will avoid cities where cops are writing tickets for the most mundane reasons. The Police chased away the customers that brought revenue to the city. Also blame malfeasance and mismanagement of these local governments investing in the derivatives market. Now many cities cannot meet their pension obligations because they took a huge loss in bad investments.


With the Carbon Taxes I think will be the death of California as we know it. The political correctness of a Federal Judge thwarting the voters saying no to same sex marriage, the pro gay doctrine being taught to the school children and the anti gun agenda has caused many people to leave the state which erodes at the tax base. Do not leave out the forced vaccination of children against parents’ consent. Even at the point of a gun when they come to a person door by showing coercion intimidating with force to get parents to comply. Parents will take their children and move out of the state then deal with a medical tyranny of dangerous vaccines forced on their children.Also mass foreclosures of homes have depleted the revenue because there are no homeowners paying property taxes to fund the services. County and city governments going along with these illegal foreclosures are now hurting because a chunk of the tax base no longer there is a factor no one talks about. California Politics chased away the most productive people who paid for goods and services or created jobs and employed people. They went someplace else then pay for California’s crushing taxes, draconian regulations and will no longer comply with insane laws.If anyone plans on moving to California, count on not having any disposable income because the cost will be passed down to the consumer because California has gone to hell. I cannot see the state no longer sustaining itself in its present state for very long. The State and city government who have recklessly governed are broke and insolvent. The government needs to be dissolved and assets liquidated. The people of California need to fire the government at all levels who ran the everything into the ground and elect a new government using paper ballots counted publicly out in the open.California is a failed utopia or an authoritarian’s paradise. Either way when the state collapses under its own weight. That is the time for the remaining good people of California to take back their state like Iceland took back their country. A collapse is not a bad thing if people know how to capitalize on the opportunity and use it to their advantage.

In some ways, your analogy fits in those unknowing, uninformed and misinformed wealthy Chinese who still think immigration to California is their right choosing...... as you have put it: Having to pay for the "bullets" that would or might "kill" them.

There is a grave sense of uncertainty hanging in the air that everyone can feel it, with me, no exception.

Sansukong, I am quite sure that many companies have put their prices up and have blamed the carbon tax. In reality I also am sure that they put their prices up because of the following.

1st July is when most companies put prices up, new tax cycle.

Greed and the fact that Aussies usually are happy to blame our politicians for any woes we have, real, imagined or projected.
