64,000 "termites" we can't find

Post by godfather » 19 Jun 2017, 21:57

I don't know why our governments of both colours can't find these rogues and expel them quickly?
Besides taking valuable jobs from local people they probably don't pay taxes either.

If you know one or two, why not dob them in?

And they come in legally, on visas, before disappearing. :flaming_mad

In some U.S. states, when someone is pulled over by police or other law enforcement, their I.D. is checked but so also is their RESIDENCE status - that is how they catch many overstayers and illegals - we should be doing the same. The only people who would object would be those with something to hide.

How you would establish your residence status in Oz if you were stopped by police?

Most likely by passport or birth-certificate or drivers licence with photo, Perro.
Road cops have sophisticated equipment onboard now and can link directly or via Station to any other authorities in Australia.

Would be interested to find out how many millionaires are among them with bank accounts in the Cayman Islands or similar places?

Buck, I won't buy your story of 'self-sufficiency' because if you are in trouble health wise and have no cover, you cannot survive for too long.

I doubt most people would carry their birth certificates or passports. I wonder how easy it is for police to get the info they need based on the drivers licence.

I know a lady who is a Bahai and fled from Iran. Her daughter followed on a temporary visa. Daughter's husband had a high paying job in the M.E., bought her a house in Australia, car, everything she needed. She had to eventually leave, settled in Dubai as she couldn't join her husband, but it was closer for him to holiday.

How many others are provided for?

Perry, I understand that the photo ID licence will be the main bridging tool until the Australia ID card is issued.
I have bad memories about the ID card during my teen years in Germany. However, with faster, cheaper and more frequent travel between
locations around the World, I am gladly agreeing that a National ID card would be a great advance in current times.

We will all become numbers and lose our own specs but in the long term the World will become a safer place.

Ahhhh....how easily we surrender our privacy, individuality and personal freedoms to government for the sake of expedience. We will NEVER be safe from human nature and terrorists and we become more like sheep every day. We are herded where governments want us and are "milked" for taxes to empower the wealthy. Lets give communism another try - maybe we just did it wrong the first time? :twocents-mytwocents:

Like Islam, communism is another failed experiment.
China did the best with it, but even they are transitioning back to capitalism

Communism missed the fact that inequalities are not all financial ones. A broader socialism may be the answer?
In the Marxist model, the feudal state is overthrown by the rise of the bourgeoisie, ushering in the capitalist epoch.
Capitalism is then overthrown by the rise of the proletariat, which ushers in not communism, but the Socialist state.
Each previous step is the necessary precondition for the next.

I see an economic system where public utilities are returned to government ownership, priority given to public health and education, basic income guarantee, and strict controls placed over private enterprise to keep them honest (including paying taxes, director registration, public interest compliance).

Ok Perry, and what would you call that system?

Think we are heading there but watch all the rusted on capitalists jumping up and down like frogs on the BBQ plate!
But before we will get to your point in time, we will need to go through the process of privatising Health & Education,
only to observe that we made a blunder in the first place.

Humans are humans and Politicians are under developed humans! MO (my opinion)!
