AM comment: I would have kept the question simple — Dear ATO, is it lawful for CORPORATIONS to create and impose thier own direct tax on customers? When they reply with “no”, a follow up reply would go something like; “Thank you – I’ll dismiss all direct tax requests from ABN: 75818456675 as frivolous and unlawful.
(SMH) The Australian Taxation Office’s internal culture is so poor that its ability to do its job is in danger, according to a scathing internal report.
The frank assessment, obtained though freedom of information laws, shows an organisation hamstrung by bureaucracy, risk aversion and internal empire building and in urgent need of sweeping “reinvention”.
The report found that a third of ATO workers disagreed that a climate of trust and respect existed in their workplaces and 38 per cent of workers thought taxpayers were not dealt with in an acceptable timeframe. Read more
(AustraliaMatters) It was a hard pill to swallow two weeks ago when Australian talk show host Alan Jones claimed police should be allowed to go into all Australian private homes anytime they like without search warrants — today he some what made up for that by speaking out against the TPP scam. World government isn’t going to be run by elected global govermnet leaders. The “new world order” is about un-elected foreign corporations given power to sue elected (funded by Sovereign tax payers) governments.
(AustraliaMatters) Australian YouTuber Vicky articulates our anger regarding Abbott going along with America to create a “Trans Pacific Partnership”, AKA TPP.
If the odd ‘F’ bomb offends you, then don’t watch this video, rather click here for the 10/10/13 Lateline take on this treason that amongst other things, will allow unelected foreign corporations the right to sue the Australian government, AKA we the Australian tax payers.
The TPP links Vicky recommended are here and here.
(AustraliaMatters) Stumbled upon a “Draft Constitution” on the Australian Islamic website called HIZB UT-TAHRIR. Oi Aussie, it might pay to go have a read and see what “failed multiculturalism” is bringing Judeo-Christian Australia…(Caution: their direct link is setting off anti-virus “trojan horse” alarms)
“By proposing this constitution of the Khilafah State [includes Australia?], which the Muslims are working towards establishing [as it isn’t yet established], with the help of Allah (swt), we invite the Muslims in general, and the intellectuals, the scholars and the prominent figures in particular to air their views and to take an active part in debating the matter”
(Fair Dinkum Radio) Pauline Hanson founder of One Nation, joins us to discuss the many issues facing Australia and its people today. Pauline has been the most controversial female politician of the past two decades, speaking her mind without polish advocating for the people.
She is considered by many to be the voice of the common people, a badge and title she gladly wears. She has been ridiculed, mocked, derided, vilified, misrepresented and targeted by the Media and Political class all of her public life.
In a wide ranging discussion we discuss the current Boat people dilemma, Multiculturalism, United Nations Treaties, Agenda 21, Foreign Ownership, and Australian Sovereignty.
In her maiden speech she said: “I and most Australians want our immigration policy radically reviewed and that of multiculturalism abolished. I believe we are in danger of being swamped by Asians.”
Little did she realise her words would come true. Today we are being ‘Swamped by boat people from Asia.’ She still awaits an apology from the ‘Latte Sipping Elite’.
(Bernard Gaynor) Here’s another generalisation that should not be easily dismissed: the Islamic community supports the military efforts of Australia’s enemies. And, by doing so, it represents the first time in Australian history that a discrete and identifiable segment of society has provided recruits and aid to organisations that seek to overthrow our democratic government.
Despite this, our government is allowing large-scale Islamic immigration and now the Australian Defence Force is actively seeking Islamic recruits.
That’s right. Our military wants to enlist the enemy.
Yet the military is so intent on recruiting from the Islamic community that it now allows them to wear a different uniform. And these are not my words. They come straight from the Royal Australian Air Force’s webpage devoted to diversity, in the section about religious dress… Read more
