Read the document instead of relying on a poor, click-baiting summary. There's an actual problem with ass callers.
I believe the collective term for these callers is 'ass-clowns'.

Dare I say I actually agree with the government that it's unfair on local businesses that purchasing the goods overseas can be tax free (for goods under $1000, everything else was subject to import duties and GST anyway).
you need to put down the crackpipe. People buying stuff overseas is NOT about them wanting to save on the TINY amount that GST introduces.
Seriously folks, GST on $1000 is how much exactly? oh yeah it's $100.
Yet you see things like womens shoes for $700 here and LITERALLY HALF THAT in America, and more often than not THAT INCLUDES FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.
Australian consumers are BEING RIPPED OFF left, right and centre and retarded businesses CRY FOUL AND GET THE GST APPLIED even though IT CHANGES NOTHING other than FURTHER RIPPING OFF CONSUMERS.
That GST goes to the government, not ANY business, and your POTENTIAL customers who buy from overseas because YOUR PRICES ARE UNJUSTIFIABLY HIGH (seriously, more than twice the price IS unjustifiable) are NOT going to buy from you because their prices increased by 10%.
Having said that: I make a point of BUYING LOCALLY rather than "from the internet" (despite the convenience, and cost savings) as long as my additional cost is NOT SERIOUSLY SIGNIFICANT.
yes folks, I have in the past and will in the future continue to buy "here" rather than "online" despite the fact that it costs me (a little) more, but if I can find *exactly* the same thing for 50% or even 100% more than the 'internet' price, I WILL shop online.
No tax refund for you if you don't buy a government-approved insurance policy.
Not even vaguely anything like the same thing.
An Insurance Policy is to protect you, this proposition is to protect EVERYONE ELSE AS WELL.
Assuming you don't mean people with autoimmune disorders or legitimate allergies, I'm really curious to know what exactly falls into this category.
Just to be clear, people in those groupings you mentioned aren't actually "anti-vaxers" they're just people who cannot take (some/all) vaccinations.
By this I mean they're not against the principle of vaccination, and they most likely DESPERATELY WISH THEY COULD.
No it's not. Apple does not support NVME so there are no NVME drives in any Apple products.

Naturally we all appreciate when it ends in a 69.
The purpose of a free press is to promote a knowledgeable society. If the agenda is to stomp out the stupidity of the masses and their dangerous influence over lawmakers then yes, I welcome these agenda-toting muckrakers of truth with open arms.
No, the purpose of The Press is to sow Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt amongst the general population and THEN (and ONLY then) to TELL PEOPLE HOW, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WHY to think.
At least, that's (a) what the politicians believe (b) what the editors believe (c) what most of the people end up believing.
