Too funny!

(Overall though, why bother bringing up grammar issues in web posts. It’s generally a meaningless addition to the conversation, and is usually only brought out when someone wants to assert some sort of superiority over another person. If I can understand a person’s point, then I’m not worried about the perfection of their (or my!) post. I say, chillax people!)

Well I just read through the entire thread, first thing on a Monday morning and without any caffeine, too. I feel a lot dumber for having done so. It has been at least a partially educational process, though.

Northwest9, your comments make you look like a d****head, but your ignorance of the difference between “your” and “you’re” makes you look unintelligent. Learn the difference between the two words.

grammar, the most pressing issue in this thread.

hahahahahahaha

It may not be the most pressing, yet it ranks as one of the the most annoying aspects. They have distinct meanings, and if you want the reader to focus on the content instead of the grammar, it is advisable to learn the difference. You are not alone in your offences against grammar though, as a quick perusal of Johnboys last post will reveal.

I have been living in share housing since and now have $70,000 saved and am planning to buy a house later this year. I used government housing when I needed it, rather than becoming dependent on it and forming the attitude that I am entitled to it, like you have.

70k saved = time to buy a home.

70k saved = interest of $350 a month to subsidise your own rent, if need be…

Meese, it might be hard to find somewhere to live, but if you really dont like it where you are, you do have options. There are plenty of people with rooms to share in their houses, i know because as much as i want to live alone, i simply cannot afford it, and i work full-time in Law!! Its not about where people work, it is about the lives we live and what we do each day. The bus system is great for the north side of canberra and there is always a bus that can get you to civic each day. Maybe the way to get across to the DHCS that it is a bad place to live in nobody bloody rents the units! If they cant make rent form them, they might take a look at the problems. By being an enabler, you are not proving your point.

Agree with everything you said, except the last bit. There are waiting lists a mile long for the cheap housing, so they will never have any shortage of moochers ready to move in. From my experience, they weren’t moved in the slightest that I paid probably 4-5x as much rent as the moron I was complaining about. While I think that criminals should be kicked out, public housing isn’t meant to be a utopia, it’s meant to be a temporary crutch to help people who are unemployed or on benefits have some place to live while they better their lives, or for the elderly pensioners without wealthy families who never managed to make enough to afford their own place (or lost whatever money they had through illness etc.). If they scrapped half of government housing and it was rebuilt as “affordable housing” that would at least be a good start, all those dole bludgers would have to move a step up and work for a living to afford a basic place, keeping them more or less out of trouble if they want to keep their jobs.

LSWCHP – read your previous statement – where you come across as a gun toting nut.

Darkfalz – you have no idea how Gov Housing works, do you?

Just been interviewed by the police, which was – interesting…

I was in public housing for 2 years from 2006-2008, starting when I was unemployed, so I know how it works, and know how DHCS operate. I complained non stop about a drug dealing piece of shit who lived below me, and played loud music at all hours of the day and night, even while I found a job, got promoted in that job, then got a new, better paying job – paying more and more rent all the time, eventually at market rate (which was 230 pw at that point, for a 1 bedroom unit). I was financially in the position to move, but I was essentially forced out in favour of the lowlife making my (and other neighbours) lives hell. Yes, there were decent folks in the complex who appreciated the subsidised housing but all of them wished they could get out. I have been living in share housing since and now have $70,000 saved and am planning to buy a house later this year. I used government housing when I needed it, rather than becoming dependent on it and forming the attitude that I am entitled to it, like you have.

As a resident of Braddon Northbourne Flats – let’s put some of these rumours to rest:

– 2 People walking to work found the body & called the police.

– There are more cops here that we have ever seen – which is saying something as the Jacks are always around due to the s***hole this place is.

– Bets currently run at it being a ‘disagreement’ between the resident Meth dealers, although a neighbour reckons it could of been a robbery gone wrong (as we’ve had doors shot in with shotguns, people held up with handguns, and several bashings the past six months…) leading on to –

– ‘Gunshots in the night’ – yeah Canberra, welcome to our world. People here are pretty much dulled by hearing things that go bang in the night. There may have been, we were watching a movie that was heavy on the gunfire – maybe our TV was turned up to high… *cough*

– Maybe housing may actually take us seriously now when we tell them that this place is f**king dangerous, and needs to be cleaned up…

There’s always hope.

Keeping it simple and clean as I lack the eloquence of you folk here – even though it’s off OP topic.

– Parents left a country in war to be here.
– Worked hard for many many years to afford a house.
– In the meantime, lived at gov’t housing, daughter working through school and uni, and now working full time.

Does that mean I can be stereotyped in my youth as a poor druggo at 15?

If so, I hope you choke on your expensive wine, Northwest9. We can then use your brain to work out why it keeps firing off in the same neuron path over and over and over and over again.

Meese, good luck mate, I hope all your hard work pays off for you. I hope we find out why this poor fellow died.

Haha, in one breathe your complaining about being steriotyped as a druggo for living in public housing, then the next breathe suggest that I must drink expensive wine. Hypocrite….

And for the record, with a mortgage, one in childcare, and one on the way, cheap wine doesn’t get a look in, let alone expensive wine

Trololol? That’s exactly my point I was making. If you are to stereotype me, then I get to stereotype you.

You’re at a point where my parents were at, albeit you’re probably living in a slightly better place since you possibly have had a better chance at an education. ***Guessing here.

To make it easier for you to have some kind of sympathy, think of it like Sliding Doors. Remove a few opportunities of your life, enable a bit of hardship…it’s too much of a complicated issue to put blase generalized comments like this to troll.

To be fair, I do agree that cleanup needs to occur, as we *do* have lowlifes who abuse the system.

I don’t care if you stereotype me, not in the least, but if your going to complain about being steriotyped, as you did, it helps your cause to not stereotype in the next sentence….

Although +1ing is such a waste of digital bits I think that on numerous occasions LSWCHP has proved his “gun totting” status. Bex not needed. Comprehension spot on.

If you think that what I wrote indicates that I’m a gun toting nut, then I can only suggest that you need a Bex and a little lie down. Either that or some lessons in English comprehension.

Enough of this nonsense. I have better things to do with my time.

The point remains that your trying to use this tragedy to advance your agenda in the absence of real information as to the nature of the incident is now the most disgusting thing in this thread as far as I’m concerned.

Um, wow. Just wow. This ‘incident’ happened on my door step. & you’re disgusted? Thanks for your support.

The perfect situation would be to kick everyone out, demolish the entire place, build some nice expensive apartments that only people with a job can afford, and force the scum into the outer suburbs to do their dealings and leave everyone else alone.

Because no-one who is worth anything lives in the outer suburbs, so it is more than fine to send all the social flotsam out our way.

I shouldn’t be amazed that there are people in this world who appear to lack any compassion for their fellowman.

A man died because that is the ultimate price we pay for indulging such thinking.

A man died because he walked past an area the government puts and enables the very worst members of society who are too lazy to work, contribute to society or help their fellow man.

Anyone who lives long term in public housing and is not a) disabled or b) elderly is sponging off the rest of society. It should be used as a leg up to help you get a job (or a better job) and get out of the reliance on hand outs. Once you make enough to rent a place of your own, even if it’s half your income, you should do so. I’d like to see an overhaul where anyone under 40 on public housing is moved on after 5 years on it. I guarantee the lowlife who murdered this poor chap has been living easy on subsidised housing / centrelink payments for years.

LSWCHP – So – your gun is loaded & in arms reach? You are irresponsible & should have your gun license revoked.

I too have lived in a house with guns. They were unloaded, securely locked in a safe, with the bolts & ammo secured at another property. We were responsible sports shooters – not cowboys. Read up on the stats on how people like you who are more likely to be killed by their own weapon.

Rampant arming of citizenry is not the solution to this problem.

Sadly, the societal engineering required to help resolve the problems here seems too hard for the Goverment & responsible agencies.

Roll eyes. What on earth are you on about? Seriously, where did I say anything like any of that nonsense you’ve just raved on about?

I never said anything like what you just surmised about the state of my firearms storage. For the record they are all equipped with trigger locks and locked in approved containers with approved locking mechanisms in a locked workshop separate to the living areas of my house. Ammunition is stored in separate locked containers.

Dimwit.
