I’ll tell you why, if it wasn’t for the government spending untold’s of money on ridiculous projects we probably wouldn’t be in so much debt.
I was driving around today, having a look at petrol prices, on station was selling their petrol for 219 per gallon, that’s a lot compared to the 117 it used to be many moons ago. so why is it going up? you’ll find hundreds of different answers to that question, so no-one really knows. Going back to the Government, they decide to spend our money (tax payers) on projects that really at the end of the day don’t benefit us at all as a nation, one example being the London Dome, built for the dawn of the millennium, 12 years later, Its just an eye sore, no-one even uses it anymore, Last year our Government decided it would be a good Idea to spend millions of dollars on a Waka (boat) for the Rugby World cup so the teams and cor prates and players can go for who knows what. well its been a few months now, and its now useless. so millions of dollars gone to waste, now what? in order to recover the debt the Government has put on us the prices of living goes up, you’d think our wages would too but sadly truth is, you have to work harder on next to little income, rent is harder to pay, buying new clothes becomes something of a chore rather then a hobby, buying food is now spending your whole wages in a couple of days.
I don’t like the way things have turned, things were much simpler when the cost of living was at a good balance. you could work hard one week and get rewarded by being able to go on holiday somewhere in the islands, today, ya work hard, pay rent and work harder to spend something at your local dairy. If the Government were a little wiser on their spending and ask the people first, this nation would be a lot better, because that’s what Government is all about, Isn’t it? clearly not. I mean why do need to buy 10 brand new BMW’s for your staff, don’t they have cars of their own? If only every job came with a brand new BMW I’d never leave, But instead don’t think about the people first and see how we, the tax payers feel about it, and whether or not its worth spending that little extra, they go ahead and do it, then we find out on the news that the Government have spent $$$,$$$,$$$ this many dollars on something that would not even benefit us in any way.
why can’t our nation be about the people, rather making the nation look good to other people overseas, we don’t need a huge billion dollar boat, or 10 BMW’s, so why put ourselves through more debt, one word, Greed. not only our country but other upper class countries like America, UK, Australia, etc they all have debt, our country are borrowing 300,000,000 per week. where is it coming from? who knows. but I know one thing, if the Government doesn’t change its ways, there’s no hope in this world, there will be more homeless, more unemployed, more suicides, more crime, more then there already is today.
do you wanna live in this world? I sure hell don’t, but like many others, we can’t do anything about it.
