It’s a lovely day here and I am going to make the most of it as the warm days are numbered :)


Thanks to those of you who commented on yesterday’s post but before I go any further I have a correction to make about the sum of money I mentioned yesterday. Sorry for the typo! The correct amounts to be given out are:

$900.00 for those who earned up to $80,000

$600.00 for those who earned $80,001 –  $90,000

$250.00 for those who earned $90,001 – $100,000

These cheques are going to be sent out to anyone who submitted a tax return for the last financial year including;

Criminals currently serving custodial sentences, approximately 28,000 people living overseas and believe it or not deceased individuals (their estates). Can someone please tell me how these recipients are going to stimulate OUR economy with their cash bonuses?

It is obvious that very little thought has gone into this initiative and is a knee jerk reaction. Seems to me that everything  the Rudd Government does is ill conceived and reckless. What we need at this time is sound economic management  and leadership and not middle class welfare handouts!!!

It’s a lovely day here and I am going to make the most of it as the warm days are numbered 🙂

  1. Likewise, the silly Government of my country is too, giving out handouts for a couple of years already, but the economy is not exactly reversing, at least not anytime soon.

  2. Hi Jaded,
    Wonderful hearing from you! I fail to see how handing out money is going to improve the economy, especially if as is the case of this country where a good portion of it is going overseas.
    Take care

  3. Maureen,

    How silly of you. Don’t you know that dead people do lots and lots of shopping? At least through identity theft!

    Even with the corrected numbers, it still makes no sense to me to be sending out the checks in the manner that they are. I stand by my earlier comment: governments are so whacky.

    Rain finally stopped here and we’re having a beautiful day as well. Enjoy.

  4. Hi Lita,
    I am happy that the rain has finally stopped falling there. Weird isn’t it that you are having all that rain and here we are in desperate need of it?One consolation for you will be that your garden will look wonderful when spring arrives 🙂
