Oh the hilarity.
Those lazy poor people on welfare...
Wasn't there a suggestion of rounding us up and putting us into work houses recently? I'm surprised that wasn't on the list.

Umm...am I the only one who thinks that by cutting off benefits to the minority who abuse the system won't actually inspire them to turn their lives around and become hard working tax payers if they have reduced rights? As if.
Pretty sure it's a sucky idea and welfare system abusers will turn to crime and further neglect their kids.
And then the people who really need the system will be left in poverty. Beautiful.
I find the post moronic, and would probably delete the person, as IMO anyone who believes and support that drivel has tunnel vision..and is also moronic.

It was me who decided my kids were worth more than that and I worked my **** off to get that for them!!! So yes I have done my time and have the "right" to voice my thoughts on those who abuse the system.
The whole point the original post is trying to make is, by putting in these extra checks and balances those who honestly deserve help get it. Those who waste the money ment to support them will have the money managed for them. They will be housed and have " food stamps" etc supplied so it can't go on drugs and booze so the kids are supported. It would also mean child support agencies like DOCS could have a track record of the family situation with drug tests etc.
If something doesn't happen soon it will become just as bad here as it has in America.

I don't agree with everything in that post. But I do agree the welfare system needs a complete overhaul.
I do believe welfare should be given out in the form of food stamps, rent cheques, clothes vouchers, electricity/gas cheques etc & therefore payable to the companies welfare clients have accounts with, SOLEY so that low lives can not sit at home smoking & drinking their payments up the wall while their children go unfed, unclothed & uneducated.
I don't agree with taking their right to vote away.
& I do think if they want 'money' to save, or 'luxuries' then they should get 'a job' of somesort.
Australia has one of the best proforming economies ATM, most people should be able to find A job of SOME sort to finance the extras they may want.

How arrogant it is when the middle class think they fund all these things.

I really don't think we're anything like America (thank goodness) and can't see us ever ending up quite that bad as our systems (political and social) are different in some important ways.
I think the cut and paste rant is ignorant and offensive (surely no one could possibly agree with the bit about removing the right to vote???) and unless it was someone important to me, I'd be deleting the friend from fb. If it was someone important (close friend or family) I'd be having a discussion with them for sure. Not over facebook. It would probably be done over dinner next time I saw them, along the lines of 'what on earth were you thinking posting that American cut and paste job rant...'
Though I wouldn't be able to stop myself posting my disagreement with the sentiments expressed.

How will that help.
It says, we do not think you are smart enough so we are going to Nanny you.
That will lead to lower self esteem , more severe depression, hopelessness and a whole new class of society.
I went and saw Hunger Games last night and I walked out thinking Thank God we dont live like that..
But it seems it aint that unrealistic.
