@Abraham said in Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here:
@Yossarian It was definitely aimed at self funded retirees. There was a Parliamentary Inquiry into the effects on Pensioners, and the outcome was scary reading. Dont take my word for it, have a read for yourself.
I just can’t believe people think its okay to strip people of a lifetime’s worth of savings and hardwork at the drop of a hat? That’s what places like China do, not supposedly advanced societies like Australia. We aren’t talking about funding people’s trips to Paris , we are talking about elderly Australian’s who rely on this system to put food on the table each day.
Finally, two things can be true at once. You can use tax dollars to help the sick and the needy, while also not destroying people’s lives with radical changes to tax laws.
Maybe franking credits could have been retained for those at the lower income levels then. I mean I don’t support complete reversal of negative gearing either, certainly the grandfathering of it for any properties currently owned. You reverse negative gearing overnight, mum and dad investors will be exposed which could cause a fire sale on the property market and anyone who owns a property will suffer (except those buying in.)
@jirskyr I noticed last night while watching, when I paused it there was a button for “Key Moments”, if you hit that it should show / hide the spoilers.
This was on Android TV Kayo app, so not sure if it’s there on other platforms.

@TigerTiger Kayo is owned by fox! I have it and share it with 2 mated, so its $35 for the 3 of us. That’s awesome value.
I chromecast it without any problems at all, and watch through my tv and audio system and get no delays in video or sound. Have used it to watch all of our fox games this year as well as many other games and sports. I would highly recommend it.
Kayo owned by Fox? Oh no lol. Doh.
Bellamy is such a gibberer, they have him commentating from his home (or wherever in Melbourne) on Fox. I’m sure he knows his stuff, but he has a complete inability to say it without sounding like a gibbering slack-jawed hick.
was smart enough to exploit stupid people
Yep, it’s ridiculous.
Loved seeing Khabib flatten him then make him tap.
Like you said, a personality fighter that saw others do it with some success - play the heel - Tito Ortiz, Chael Sonnen to name a few. Moderate fight abilities with some easy match ups as well as some luck (Aldo fight, Alvarez fight - what was he thinking? no game plan whatsoever.)
His fans are just as bad as him. Ego through the roof.
I won’t watch the doco because I cannot stand him. Just a goof who is an embarrassment to the sport. The fans who believed his hype are bad also. I was at the pub for the Mayweather fight and I overheard people saying they put up to around $3000 on Connor to get the first round knock out LOL
