In Australia only. My dad told me today that everyone on Youth Allowance gets $1000 and everyone on a pension (and I'm betting thats probably no-one on this forum) gets $1500 as part of the Australian Federal Govts. save-the-economy plan. Hoo-****ing-Ray!!!! Getting me a new amp.
A few people have said to me "I'll believe that when the moneys are in my pocket", but I dont think so. Anyway what are you gonna do with your $1000 Australian-Pit-Monkeys-between-the-age-of-16-an-25-whose-parents-earn-less-than-a-certain-amount-of-money-a-year?

i dont qualify between my parents they make over 100 k Australian a year...... and we still only just get ****ing by because i have two younger siblings. that and i live in a small 3 bedroom house (pre 1980's) that we pay $500 for a week rent and that's about the cheapest we can rent in this area. seriously its ****ing stupid i have some luxury's most wouldn't yea (but dads bonus payed for my bass rig and my computer) but when ur parents are making over 100k between em before tax (from memory) Australian and ur family is still living pay to pay with a dad who used to be a financial advisor (now working in superannuation) who budgets really carefully every week u know its all gone to shit. What really makes you think 'oh shit' is the fact that there are plenty of people with lower incomes than my family and with high mortgages + car loans with the interest rates a lot of people are ****ed.


its a really ****ed up system we live in here. so yea / of rant
I am me. Live with it.

I hate you, my parents make too much money, but the fact we're in debt doesn't mean anything to the government apparently. Helping pay off people's mortgages would lessen the crisis, people would stop freaking out and changing banks every five minutes, but no, lets just give more money to people who are just going to spend it on amps.

this goes towards my point. They screwed up, they should have helped pay low income family's debts instead of giving it to kiddies. sure retiree's but not kiddies. oh and @ TS if you're under 18 you're not sposed to get the youth allowance in your hand are you? or am i entirely wrong.
I am me. Live with it.

If you read it, it goes to the families and not the individuals.

The $1000 payment will also go to families with dependent children receiving youth allowance, Abstudy or a veterans' children education scheme payment. It will not be paid to independent youth allowance recipients.

It goes to the parents, but some (from my knowledge, most) parents give it straight to their kids. So the kids will get the money, and go "holy shit awesome, a 1000$" and spend it on stupid shit. I would've Voted for Howard if I could've, but even still, I believe that Rudd's done a surprisingly good job of handling this "crisis" so far.

Yeah. Essentially they can block anything the deem to be "inappropriate", and to get rid of the filtering you have to put your name on a list that officials will check for illegal actions. And because they're doing this for the kids people will accept that they're doing the right reason.


Spread the word man. I don't want this crap.

Yeah its stupid, but the sad part is it will go through.
I actually think Rudd is doing it for the children like he says though, but the fact is compulsary when they already have a filter you can download if you want, and will just slow down our already slowest in the western world internet connection just seems fantastic....
Also the fact is, it will never be maintained, illegal sites pop up so regularly you would need all of australia working 24/7 to block all questionable content. And then theres always just mirrors and such people could use.

yea i dont qualify damn it.

neither, maybe we should all jump on the dole and live doing jack all? That's what everyone is going to start to do if Rudd dosn't start doing something bout unemployment. Sh*t like this just encourages it and who has to pay for all of it? Fair hard working citizens.

Exactly. Rudd may be doing it for the kids, but the blame for kids finding inappropriate stuff on the net is falling on the wrong people. Parents are responsible, not ISPs.

The thing is, hardly anybody knows about this, we have to spread the word. People forget that politicians work for US. We elect them to voice OUR (or the MAJORITY's) opinion.

If enough people complain to their members and get out and send letters, make calls, send a metric fuckton of emails and make it known that we don't want this, they will have to get rid of it.

Doesnt have to. If you want it in your own bank account you have the right to claim it.
