    How in the hell is this sort of third world/US thing happening here. I thought we were better than that. But obviously I was wrong. I go to Japan to get a respite from the ridiculous prices here.....food alone in a month...pays much of the airfare.....and going again soon. Something very wrong with the pricing and salary structure here.....very wrong. Some reap the rewards from our resources and few exports...but most Australians don't....(and why don't we all benefit from what is really OURS, our resources, or exports, our taxes the government is too gutless to chase). Time that equation was nulled. Vote minor parties who'll deal with this - the two majors never will.
