But Trump says:
“Today I’m proud to declare the US is in the midst of an economic boom the likes of which the world has never seen before.”
And Greta says:
"The world is on fire!"
I don't think Boeing's current woes really have much to do the Trump - as that article said, they've been wasting money on share buy-backs and not leaving enough capital in reserve for an emergency like the problems with the 737 MAX.
I've been copping a lot of abuse on Twitter for re-posting this 2016 Productivity Commission
report into elderly parent visas in Australia - in relation to the deportation of that 98 year-old Indian lady in Sydney as reported on News.com.au: A 98 year-old woman is desperately fighting against being deported back to India after the Australian government decided that paying for a carer to tend to her for 15 hours a week was too expensive.Esmeralda Rosario is now facing spending her 99th birthday alone with no family in Goa India after 12 years in Australia because the Home Affairs department refused her Aged Parent Visa application in November last year.The mother of two and grandmother of four arrived in Australia in July 2007 on a tourist visa, and received an indefinite bridging visa in 2008 while her Aged Parent visa was being processed… Ms Rosario is a recipient of a $50,990 home care package through the government’s MyAgedCare program. Her daughter Marie Rita D’Silva said that $50,990 of annual funding gives the 98 year-old at-home care from a nurse three times a week in five hour blocks while her Australian family members earn a living.
The problem is that this woman is costing Australian taxpayers a fortune for a system that she in no way contributed to. The Productivity Commission report estimated that the total cost to the Australian taxpayer of each elderly parent visa is $330,000 - $410,000 and they recommended that the price should either be hiked to that level or the visa abolished in its entirety because those people were costing Centrelink and Medicare a fortune.
I'm accused of being a heartless b*stard for pointing out the obvious - that the family were trying to transfer the cost of caring for their grandmother to the Australian taxpayer and that having already been here for 11 years on a bridging visa with a very expensive Level Four home-care package she's already cost our welfare schemes hundreds of thousands. We simply don't have the capacity in our very small nation to care for the world's elderly and sick - we have own own elderly and sick to be looking after (and those resources are already stretched).
And the really insane thing about the Elderly Parent Visa system is that the Labor Party took a policy to the last election of uncapping the number of visas AND reducing the cost from around $25,000 to just $2,500. That's insanity, we already have enough blank cheques written by the Labor Party (NDIS, NBN) without adding to the burden for future taxpayers. Every dollar that gets spent on elderly migrants coming to this country has to by necessity come out of ANOTHER SCHEME like mental health, we simply don't have the money to provide for those elderly economic refugees.
