As outlined at above she is not real. She is made up like the tooth fairy, jesus and Alistair Coe. On that basis we are all better than her because she is the figment of someones imagination.

The real problem with public housing is people who work full time and get a decent wage, but piss it all up the wall on booze, cigarettes and a $50k car loan and then THEY get public housing. Don’t tell me it doesn’t exist, I work with one of them currently, and have before.
THEY should be ferreted out (not hard if the government really cared) so that people who really do need the housing can have it.
As for drug addicts in public housing, cold turkey works wonders. Cut them off from their supplier. Why should society pay for drug users to have heavily subsidised housing so they can afford their habit, at the expense of people who need the housing through no fault of their own?

Harsh, but very true.

Postalgeek No you were talking double dutch!

No froth. I read what you said, which was:

Most men are paid higher wages than women

And I said it was a vague generalisation open to multiple interpretations. My opinion hasn’t changed.

Dvaey Try not to put works in my mouth, you have a hugh imagination!

Postalgeek an Dvaey

Before you start frothing at the mouth, If you read what I had said, was MOST MEN, my stepgrandfather was all for single mens rights, he appeared on TV some years ago, Jack Mackalin, I think that’s how his surname is spelt.

Well, if you don’t like the public housing offered in one area, move.

Forget telling me I don’t know what it’s like to grow up poor etc, I’ve been there and I made the choice to get out of it and improve myself and my situation. It’s hard work, but now I have a great life.
I always find it amusing that the most liberal, bleeding heart people are the ones who’ve never associated with people who need public housing. It’s easy to have all the answers and know how “Poor”people think/need when you’ve never been there or met them personally.
By and large, they are lazy, self centred people who think society owes them a lifestyle, which the taxpayer should subsidise. Those who have lived amongst it, or know those that do, know the real story. Sadly, teh vast majority of public housing tenants ruin it for the few who actually do need the housing.
Complaining does nothing, make a choice and get out of your situation. Public housing is meant to be a short term solution to someone’s problems, it’s not meant to be a house for the rest of your life……put the word on a relative/friend, get yourself somewhere more productive. If your answer is you are staying in Canberra for family, well, what sort of family are they if they are neglecting you like this in your time of need?
