    Bad bad bad Journalism! Young Property Gun

    I bought 2 OTP, and the other one after it was built. But the key is that they are NRAS properties. Over the next 10 years, they will each generate 8-9k after tax cash flow. After NG, I'm out of pocket about 2-3k but I then get tax free money from the government. Currently the NRAS incentive is...

    Future party leader

    People with compassion need to make these decisions. Subjecting people to physical and mental abuse is far different to "we take them in". Seeing that phrase and the implication behind it makes me physically ill.

    Future party leader

    The Royal Commission into abuses at the detention centres will sort it all out. I look forward to seeing Morrison and Abbott squirm as they front it.

    The Super Rich and Us

    Which is why consumption taxes such as our GST unfairly place a bigger burden on the lower and middle classes. When the rich hear the governments talk about increasing the GST or "broadening the base", they think about even more expensive cigars for the humidor.

    Driverless cars - the biggest potential impact to real estate?

    I can't speculate on house prices, but here is what I see as possible outcomes if we have fully driverless cars. 1) Far fewer accidents, so we'll see a collapse of industries and services involved with car accidents. Smash repairs, insurance, tow trucks, road trauma at hospitals will be...

    RIP Malcolm Fraser

    Laura Tingle described him as "the Darth Vader of my youth, the Obi-Wan Kenobi of my middle age". His vision of a multi cultural country and compassion for refugees is still felt today.

When we picked this block I didn't think I would mind this commute even with children. But when my son was actually born I quickly changed my mind. I now have 2 kids and...

    Erskine Falls near Lorne is really good. In Rutherglen, for me, no visit would be complete without going to Stanton and Killeen.

    The IPCC said this: BTW.... I don't claim these things, in the same way I don't "claim" 5 is greater than 1, I also don't "claim" the existence of owls.

    do the greens need a lesson in economics? article

    Correct. And there is the problem. "none of it caused or influenced by us silly humans to any noticeable degree". The evidence is there. And yet you persist that humans can't possibly cause it. TC can dish it out, but cries when people strike back. It's a human failing, we all do it. But...
