At Kerry Packer once said, "if anyone in this country doesn’t minimise their tax they want their heads read. Because as a government, I can tell you you’re not spending it so well that we should be donating extra".
Totally agree

Basicallly at the end of the day mid/high income earners paid more money and no/low income earners ended up with more in their pockets. Can anybody spell "wealth redistribution"?

Now to help win an election Rudd wants to drop the price of carbon which will result in a loss of revenue but wants the change to remain "budget neutral" so they have to slash spending from elsewhere. Where better then those pesky middle/high income earners who go to work everyday and pay lots of taxes, how dare they drive around in a nice new cars!

Also theoretically the cost of living should reduce with the floating price of carbon however the no/low income earners still receive the same benefits meaning more money in their pockets.

Gotta love a Government who takes from those that work to give to those that won't.
You said a mouthful

Could not agree with you more

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Has anyone had any issues with Cruise Control not working (activating) on their new 2014 JGC?

As per instructions, only works above 40kmh, I attempt to push it on but nothing happens. No feedback on the EVIC and can't a cruising speed.

Sorry if this has already been asked!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Rudds running around making policies and the parliament's not even sitting to debate the issues. How can they be passed without going through the two houses? Is he been back in the country yet? left as soon as he was made PM. Kevin 747.

I sure hope that car isn't an "order" for someone and they are letting people test drive it. If it's not an order/sold then the dealer is a dill for registering it as it's now second hand!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

OK Guys. Although I agree 30% with what he said, and 43% of what they said, I am still 91% sure these %'s don't add up to 115% of the undecided ones.
Lets drop the politics, as I don't need more air in my tires. I think the point has been made. Which is, I am right.

"Your car has been ordered but I am not able to give out
E numbers by instruction from Chrysler and management"

I guess it is Jeep Australia policy to keep customers in the dark. Can't have customers knowing more than the dealers.

Does anyone have a contact address for CJD. The website doesn't have any contact details other than dealers.

I agree with dropping the politics - this thread is big enough with all the interesting 2014 JGC information. I don't want to sort through political opinions as well. I'm sure Rudd and Abbott have forums where those opinions can be expressed.
