the following email lobbed in my basket asking to be distributed more widely....might be interesting to ask the pollies "why not?"
I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay cheque, (I work on a mine site on a Kalgoorlie (WestAust) construction project), I am required to pass a random urine test for drugs, with which I have no problem at all.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a Centerlink Payment (social security) because I have to pass one to earn it for them??
Please understand - I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their backsides drinking alcohol & smoking dope. Could you imagine how much money the Government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a Centrelink Payment ??
Come on, Fair's Fair, Fix it up !!!
Please pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't.
Hope you all will pass it along though,
because something has to change in this country, and soon!
