    You bet they do.

    This is one reason property values are so high, with so many people given free access to more money than they can afford they go to auction and bid that extra bit. Another problem, loads of people buy their house then deck it out with the latest HDTV's, furniture, whitegoods, etc.

    No wonder they foreclose as soon as there's a hiccup. My mum told me when they bought the unit they were sitting on beer crates for a few months and I recall as a kid they leased out a bedroom and the garage to help pay the loan back. Who's doing that these days?

    I would like to do so when I move into my place next year. Why the hell not, eh?
    I should be fine with the mortgage even without it, but if someone can pay 1/4 or whatever of it for me, then that's just more cash in my bank acount for a rainy day/ new car/ studio upgrade/ whatever in the future.
    I just hope people are still willing to rent a room when their housemate is the owner/ landlord.

    The campaign is ludicrous, how on earth will the ATO get Chinamen, etc. selling goods out of garages to fill out BAS statements?

    Yeah right!

    I may have already said it here (or on Facebook).... but when Gerry Harvey can explain to me why I can buy five blu ray discs from O/S for less then the price of one from Harvey Norman, then maybe I'll listen to his argument

    "Where were all these companies when Australian manufacturing started to shrink? They were heading overseas with their buyers to get cheaper goods into Australia."

    Damn straight! This is nothing more then the big retailers crying poor because they bought a million units of a product at 50c to the US dollar and now that we have parity, they believe they're "missing out". We can't be held responsible for your piss poor purchasing practicses

    "Mr Harvey stressed that he did not oppose the right to shop on the internet, and was next month planning to launch an online store."

    Sure you are Gerry... sure you are! Watch the prices still get inflated online as well

    Unless you're getting the goods straight from China they won't be as competitive as Evilbay, they still have to factor in for warehousing and overheads.

    It'll just be like Woolies online, it'll save you on petrol $ only.

    I bought LED light globes directly from HK for $7 delivered. Aussie price $15-$28.

    The fact is Gerry, that 50% + 10% GST = 55% which is still 45% cheaper than your retail prices.

    I did the same in regards to LED downlights for my music room , at Bunnings they cost a small fortune , bought them from Hong Kong online including shipping and they were still way under a third of the price of the downlights from Bunnings.

    The individual who smashed one of my car windows last night/this morning and did even more damage to the car next to mine. Yet they stole nothing - what was the fucking point? At least the repairs will cost far less than I had expected. Fuck 'em!

    Oh I get that, just stupid that mine and two other cars cop the same treatment and mine and it seems one of the others did have stuff they could have taken. More than likely teenage kids on school holidays with nothing to do and no supervision. Just one of these things that does happen, fucking annoying though.

    Fuckheads who own dangerous dogs just to compensate for the dimple where their dick should be. Just thinking of that poor five year old, torn apart in her own home in front of her family, for what? So some moron can have a tough pet. And it just went on and on, another child was saved from the dog's jaws, adults were savaged, and what did the owner do? Stood back and said "heel boy". What a man. I seriously hope he gets put away for manslaughter, for a very long time.

    And by the way, I'd put money on it that the dog wasn't actually a pit bull. Everyone just assumes a big savage dog that attacks people is a pit bull. All dangerous breeds should be banned except for strictly licenced owners.
