Message from a hard working Aussie…
\
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, as I work on a mine site on the Kalgoorlie [WA] construction project, I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem.
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 [Welfare Check] 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 grog and smoking dope.
Can you imagine how much money the Government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a Centerlink Payment.[Welfare Check]
??
Please pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't !!!
Hope you all will pass this along though, because something has to change in this country,
and soon…

In general governments aren't very good at running peoples lives or anything else really. It's sort of like having a big committee making all your important decisions for you.

Hell, let's not stop with aid recipients and athletes. Let's require it for politicians, too.
Hey, what's good for Kobe Bryant and a homeless guy is good for Harry Reid, too. Right?

The real problem is how back asswards the system is. You make more money sitting on your arse sucking on the govt. teet than you could working a minimum wage job.

This crazy train is speeding up as we approach the cliff, I hope everyone here is taking the necessary measures to get parachutes ready for you and your loved ones.
