The Politically Incorrect Show - 25/08/2000

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, KAYA ORAAAA & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Friday August 25, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd, the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit & excellence against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.

[Music up, music down]

The chickens have come home to roost for the sheeple - for those who voted for the present regime in the Sheeple's Republic of Aotearoa. New Zealand's currency has become the worst-performing in the world. The sheeple are about to feel the unfashionable pain of chronically rising prices. These Isles of Imbecility have become an international laughing stock. Investors looking to make a buck know to avoid this place like the plague, because its populated by bleating bludgers who hate buck-making, who despise the very people whose blood they wish to suck. They know this regime was elected by these bludgers, & that it shares their attitudes.

If Dr Cullen is stuck for a way out of the mire, he could do no better than take to heart the lead letter in Wednesday's Daily Marxist, headed up, "Sick of working for the government":

"In the past 18 months I have started a small business in an industry which is new to New Zealand. I have invested all my savings (& borrowed money) in plant, equipment & vehicles.

"In my first full year of operation, the company could only afford to pay me a minimum wage, yet during that time I spent a huge proportion of my time & effort collecting, administering & paying to the Government twice what I could afford to pay myself. Payments to the Government include road user tax, ACC levies, Fringe Benefit Tax, PAYE, GST, residual claims levies for ACC injuries that occurred before my company even started, & company tax. This does not include workers' insurance, which is effectively another tax. I even have to collect weekly, on behalf of the Government, payments for my workers' former student loans, & traffic fines.

"So, since I have set up this company the Government has invested no capital in it, taken no risk, made twice as much as me from it, & not had to make any effort to even collect its money. The only contact a small business has with Government is the never-ending stream of demands for all the different taxes. Clearly it is a joke to say this Government (or even the last one) supports small businesses."

Yes, Dr Cullen, do read & absorb this letter. No, Dr Cullen, don't take it as an excuse to throw Other People's Money at this, or any other, small business via Comrade Neanderton's Ministry For Economic Disaster. Treat it as a clear signal to launch a frontal assault on the taxes & regulations by which you make it impossible for this man to prosper & create new jobs. You put taxes UP when you came to power, Dr Cullen - put them down again, WAY down ... & keep going! Only thus can you trigger a turn-around. Only then will the rest of the world stop laughing.
