2016 Camry Altise for Sale

Seems a lot to me.
5 years old, was say $33K when new.
depreciates $3K a year !

Pricing for the 2016 Toyota Camry starts at $26,490 plus on-road costs for the base petrol-powered Altise and tops out at $40,440 plus on-roads for the hybrid-equipped Atara SL. The only price change for the 2016-model is a $1500 increase for the Atara SX variant. ... fications/

I'll be having my first AstraZeneca 'shot' next Thursday at somewhere called the Alpha Building 2 at Perth Domestic Airport (after asking my GP yesterday who told me I needed to book online).

Took a while to fill out the online questionnaire then it gave me a choice of locations. Perth Airport is the closest to where I live.

When I go there I'll mention the 'joints for jabs' scheme in Washington, DC and ask them what's in it for me? And, no... I don't want a pre rolled 'joint'.  Cheesy

(I did notice when I was making the booking that there were lots of appointments available over the next week, at least at Perth Domestic Airport. I could have had it done today if I'd wanted to but I'm a bit busy till late next week).

Thank you Carl.
You are helping Australia.

Over 5.6M Aussies have had a covid vaccination now.

Most of you seem to miss the point - the West divested itself of manufacturing because equipment etc was outmoded and there was a developing need to go into new technologies... in the interim the polluting manufacturing has been handed to the Third World which suffers all the problems of old technology.

When new and 'clean' technology comes online, the West will resume its place as the principal producer of high quality finished goods
(shades of the Gillard speech about Asians becoming consumers of high quality finished goods... Jesus - where do we get them?  I generally like Libran ladies, but this one...)
with new technology, just as Japan and Germany did after WW II - with Western help.

Once WW III has cleansed the known universe - that will become the new reality under the disguise of the West 'needing' to restore national security and stability via production capability.

Even I am guilty here with my proposed GAIA in the Pilbara...  nowadays there is no reason to place vulnerable facilities far away ... when a missile can hit anywhere there is no reason not to put the manufacturing as close to the materials as possible ... it's not like they'll be bombarded by a submarine or even a cruiser...

Actually I didn't say that - but all such deals come with a price.

You said the BRI was a cover for Chinese world domination. it is not. Meanwhile you are worried about the cost of infrastructure to you but you don't need to worry about  that, because the necessary resources and know- how  don't need to affect your money (see MMT). That's also why the IMF has been missing in action.

I believe you'll find someone else said that, but it is confused in all the quoting going on... now that you mention it, the BRI IS a cover for world domination... though what I said was that like the autobahns their purpose is not peaceful but rather to provide ability to move materiel and troops quickly.

]Meaning you expect all men to be held guilty for a single rape, or all women held guilty for a single child murder - Good-o.. it is clear you do not understand the concept of group or corporate guilt as allocated to an entire group for a single event.

Your delusional "individual rights" ideology makes you complicit in the slaughter of children in war. The only way you can escape that reality is to support abolishing the UNSC veto power, and criminalize war between nations.

A single rape by a single individual is not analogous to a nation's military murdering children, as collateral damage or deliberately.

China has deep flaws socially and economically and such things are never fully subject to total control by a centralised government. Cut off from the world by the reaction to its expansionism means a collapse.

Expansionism? Biden is trying to woo Putin despite the Russian reclamation of Crimea.

Biden told Blinken to phone Xi a couple of days ago. Guess what, the US  re-affirmed the One China principle, even though a fool of a US general recently said HK has a right to 'independence'. ditto for Taiwan.

As for problems in China, the fastest development in history has won considerable national support. Meanwhile you need to get your own house in order.,,,eg the highest prison population in the world, in the Land of the Free, the Beacon of the World etc etc....

Your elucidation is proceeding, Grasshopper...

Unfortunately yours isn't.....

Happy to be of service..... you ARE some student, aren't you?  China has the second highest rate of incarceration in the world... - they tend more towards simple solutions such as a bullet to the back of the head for 'bandits'...

I'm not in the US..... you ARE a lost soul....

Let's get this straight - 'all chinese restaurant owners' who had a problem with people not accepting $5 an hour is not the same as all chinese restaurant owners... but in the context it did infer that all the perpetrators were chinese.... meaning no other group did that....

The tribes around Sydney had been devastated by the Smallpox epidemic of 1789.  An epidemic, which on the surface, appears to have come from the white colonists.  In addition, the Sydney area was well known amongst the Indigenous Australians as having been a bit of a "desert" as far as flora and fauna which was edible was concerned.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Of course, that information is suspect as it came from the accounts of the early explorers/settlers, right?   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Ah so the endless parklands you could gallop a horse through had nothing to do with 'Aboriginal Husbandry'?  How odd...

Honestly.... you and Pascoe...  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

Brian is a shill for the White Supremacists, working hard towards alienating all the decent people with his endless personal attacks and thus hoping to bring them into the fold of White Supremacism.

So if your Kaffir were decimated by smallpox, who the did they sustain that magnificent husbandry of the land?

If it ends the BS coming from RWNJs bring it on

Well, end the BS from both RWNJs and Lefty Progressive socialists

Then there might be a chance of saving the Republic

Just lately though, the Republic has been taking a beating from the Globalist socialist elite

Corporations don't know which way to turn, go overseas, come back home, go overseas again - they must be getting pretty dizzy

Globalist socialist elite. About as big a pointer as saying Agenda 21

If Agenda 21 was the only thing the US had to worry about, things would be reasonably fine, the Republic would survive. No, they have bigger worries than that, but don't count on Biden won't to fix them

Biden and his ilk are the cause of the problem, they can never be the cure! It didn't start with him but almost 50 years in politics and he has never been part of the solution.

But he is the American prez.

The system is fccd when a Bidden can become president.

Is he or just an installed puppet from a stolen election?
