    Hey all,

    Due to our current pm trying to kill our economy with endless tax increases we have had a massive down turn to the point we about to jump to Australia and work in the mines to bring money home for my family.

    Luckerly our government did not back up the pm and all the things she wants that where killing our economy have been canned.

    Due to that our work has started to pick up again. Because of that I have been knocking up the hours again.

    So no I am not ignoring the forum, just busy.
    Would help our pm would get lost and cease leading us, she is a complete failure and not popular here among business, or working people at all.

    Fingers crossed she keep away and our economy can get better along with more work.

    Nz is great if you like massive tax, minimal public health care, take our forced mandatory acc to court to cover what they say they will cover.

    Beyond that we are not clean and green, and false advertising nation.

    Beyond that it's cool.

    very interesting Mac. I would not have realized this. I guess the grass really is not greener on the other side of the fence.

    Trust me I have been wanting to leave here for a while.

    Soon enough I can, once my wife's paper work is sorted.

    Till then wait and watch, I hope the party that has formed gets ahead and forced our to islands to separate. Now that would help a lot.

    Back to normal life, better finish a email for my lawyer to help fight for my apparent tax paid free health care which isn't free.
    And our work insurance government forced insurance which dose not pay when injured either.

    And of course 30 percent tax 15 percent tax on all purchases regional tax, and 50 percent fuel tax.

    Makes me very grateful for the PRIVATE Medigap supplement insurance I have. Between it and Medicare, I haven't paid a medical bill in ages. They've taken care of all of it. I think the premium I pay for my supplement, not nearly as high as the premiums I paid before I qualified for Medicare, is quite reasonable considering the coverage I have.

    Take heed, folks. What mac is describing is what will happen to us if the government completely takes over health insurance in a "single payer" system. You will be judged by the government run agencies as to whether or not you are worthy of receiving healthcare, and having it paid for. The government, and NOT you or your doctors, will decide if you get to live or die if you have something that is life threatening. They will get to play God with your lives, your health and your well-being You will have no more choices. It will become a take-it-or-leave-it system. You will have to sue just to have your rights upheld. Ultimately, you may end up having no rights, at all. Is this really what any of us wants?

    Mods, use your own discretion. If this is too political, you can delete it. But I think we should all be forewarned in view of today's climate.

    Yes that is up to the mods to decide and as a mod I don't care about stopping it at this stage so that's up to Matt and the others.

    She is correct it is a very big warning our health care system and socialized healthcare system is complete floor and failure that how much they try to say it's great I shouldn't have to go to court and spend thousands to get $8,000 hand operation done so I can keep working.
    Morso and the specialists of bacne 100% the operation needs to be done as I will end up either not being able to work or on the benefits not being able to do anything yet the benefits only $210 a week and rent is $280 a week.

    Those in the USA are so lucky to have what you've got freedom ability to choose what you want.

    Unfortunately that freedom also comes with a cost and many simply can't pay for procedures and medications even with insurance. There are pros and cons for everything.
