Bollocks of the Month

'Economic Violence'

What a crock of shite- even coming from someone reknowned for verbal diarrhea!

News flash - WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE 'POOR'!

Of course, much depends on your definition of 'poor'. I have seen very few cases of starvation hanging around WINZ or the courts, of late. When lack of playstations, computers and internet access come into the equation, I take the measurement of poverty with a very large grain of salt.

There can be no doubt that there is hardship with children. They pay the price for their scumbag parents choices- widescreen tv's and booze & fags ahead of book, good food and warm clothes. THEY and they alone get my sympathy. They would be better off in an orphanage than being used as a meal ticket. Even the well- documented sadism of the nuns pales into insignificance when compared to life in some of the squalid, drug-infested cesspits these dregs live in.

Now, if everybody in this country was given a house, a car and $100k in the bank plus a job -within a year the status quo would have reasserted itself. Most of the lower class (if we have a middle class, we must have a lower class too!) would have no home and be broke. They would be after a handout and crying that 'the system' did them out of what was theirs.

Such is life.

To suggest that by not throwing more money into the equivilent of a black hole, we are commiting an act of violence on the 'poor' is the product of a twisted mind and disgusts me!

Part of the problem is that not too long ago, the stupid, incompetent and violent either starved, had accidents (a few still do) or were executed. It meant they couldn't breed or be parents.

Now the intelligent, competent and peaceful pay for them to breed. Plenty of people get out of the underclass and improve, but a hardcore are fundamentally a waste of space.

"The release of another report on child mal-treatment showing the explicit link to poverty is fast approaching a national emergency says Tariana Turia in response to the release of 'Children at increased risk of death from maltreatment and strategies for prevention'."

Maybe lazy low life scum with a predelcition for assaulting their kids also don't have steady jobs at the bank so they don't have that level of income but instead live off the taxpayer and rip people off. Just a thought.

Temporary steralisation for the unemployed and those not married or in a recognised relationship?

Just out of interest how much or Tariana's anti-poverty excuse the perp blame the rich rant was fired by the fact that Maori as a group come out by far and away the most involved particpants in domestic violence?

Her amswer to all of the worlds problems are going to boil down to give Maori money... or else.

Disregarding those who don't manage their benefit or those who cheat the system, for all the others the benefit pays for the essentials, food, power, rent, phone, petrol but then there's nothing left. A flippin parking fine, threatened penalties and you have to get the phone disconnected to pay for it. LIFE ON THE BENEFIT IS MISERABLE - the DPB isn't a safety net, it's a trap - many people haven't got a shit show in hell of supporting a couple of kids, running a house and holding down a job.

It would be better if the state paid some people not to have kids.

Guess what Anonymous I have first hand experience at the "trap" you described. With an income that was $50 less than my income I survived without taking anything that wasn't mine, cheating, lying, doing a runner or "cheating the system".

Yet somehow I manged to not beat the crap out of any children and I've built my opwn business from the ground up and got myself out of that "trap".

I sugest a nice big cup of harden the hell up and get your shit together is in order for a lot of people. The default setting can't be "give me more money". All our ancestors who came by sea lading on the beach with no one else looking to give them hand out or anyone else to blame.

If those in the minority who want to change our flag - which is one of the oldest in the world - get their way it should be a big yellow banner with the words "I'm a victim give me money" on it.

Being on a benefit sucks for a lot of people. It's meant to.

I'm poor--can't afford to fill the tank of the V8 more than once a week.
Must rush off and find some kiddies to beat up.
