@laura__palmer saying he needs to do his job, but ignoring it when I point out taking care of Covid is also his job is hypocrisy.

@laura__palmer sure, but I'm using it to point out your hypocrisy. 

You're not mentioning it because it doesn't fit your preconceived ideas.

I don't have too much issue with the gore, more that kids might not sit through the slow pace.

@mamamia-user-482898552 so attempting to lead the country through a pendemic is not part of his job?

@gu3st that's the exact opposite of pithy. 

No idea what they'll do.

@cat you're overpaying for your black market guns. AIC found many for an average price of about $1,000.

@gypsy if he's that useless why would you want him to go to the climate change meeting?

snorks October 12, 2021

@laura__palmer Conveniently leaving out all the reasons he has to stay in Australia at this time.

@gu3st Clandestine? Really?

And the covid crisis is much bigger than the bushfire crisis.  Shouldn't he be here when 130,000 people have or have had a disease which is potentially fatal?
You're saying he's not democratically mandated to try and help with the covid situation?

DIdn't the PM leave Australia during a crisis a couple of years ago and get destroyed over it?

@cat yes, let's stop people collecting gins, but ignore the illegal ones. That'll help.

@random dude 1.35% would be good these days!

Don't tell anyone,, but we've been looking at short term annuities instead of term deposits or bonds.

@odonovanoonagh sounds good, but it can be complicated. 

What asset allocation will you use? 
Are you better off contributing to super for the tax deduction?
Passive or active funds? Or just direct shares?

@cat Lol that's not what banned means. 

snorks October 8, 2021

@cat that's kind of the point.

@cat not sure I'd list a mortgage as after pay and HECS debt.

@Alpha They have to be combining the two , surely!

@odonovanoonagh I'm a bit biased, but a meeting with a financial adviser is really good. It'll probably cost you a couple of hundred dollars but they'll be able to explain everything. 


Other than that the governments Money Smart website is a good place to start. 

Most of the big funds have client education centres. Vanguard for instance is good value. They make themselves look good of course, but it's still handy. 

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

@random dude there are more private fire arms in Australian homes now than there was before port Arthur.

When you say savings, you mostly mean investments, right?
