This is a year old, our situation has not improved, the govt cares even less and they refer the needy to charities. My question, if our govt isn’t working why are we paying them?
So far all I can see is that the rich get better deals, better tax benefits, they benefit from insider info meaning that private rail is now more prevalent and developers are making a motza. Driving past Northconnex today showed me clearly developers are cashing in and the residents are being screwed.
More people live below the poverty level than ever before, electricity prices are rising (contrary to the promise of cheaper with privatisation) renewable energy is a promise with no real improvement in making it happen other than energy companies are now selling you the dream and raising the costs. The QLD labor have sold their souls and seem happy to destroy the Great Barrier Reef and we’re supposed to be grateful that the Fed got is guaranteeing gas is more readily available locally.
I am disillusioned, sad and angry.

The myth that all Baby boomers are sitting on a fortune and making it difficult for the millennials to buy a home, lets face it how many of us doing our level best to help them, be it with cheap rent at home, child minding, cash support or what ever? The Rich boomers are fewer than the struggling ones and those struggling are doing what they can to help the next gen. Its like saying all Millennials are leaners, of course they’re not and not all Boomers are investors soaking up the future.
I am most certainly disillusioned, angry and extremely sad, not because I’m not doing my best but that My government doesn’t give a shit about the everyday person, they don’t’ give a crap that there are thousands of people living on the streets, sleeping on couches and unable to find housing or work. I’ve paid (as have most of my contemporaries) paid my taxes, worked hard, made good and bad choices. Too many Australians care more about themselves than the state of the country, they forget when we look after each other we all do better. Giving the unemployed a reasonable increase means they will spend money locally, they will increase businesses and that business will employ more people, more jobs means more taxes, more taxes means we can help more people, grow the economy and advance our society.
I won’t even start on the lies and rubbish being said about refugees or reconciliation, I won’t harp on about public transport being sold to the highest bidder in NSW and I won’t even begin on how we are treating our natural environment… because each is a whole thing on its own.
Seriously, is there anyone in the old parties that gets this? Because seriously you’d never know it listening to question time, you’d never know it watching the Qld Govt sell their soul to Adani.
Ok this is long and if you’ve made it all the way to the bottom, well done, by now you can add a whole bunch of inequity you see around you yourself and can add a bunch to this loooong list.
I want more, not so much for me, but for my kids, my grandkids, I want them to get a good free education, I want TAFE restored so those not wanting a Uni degree aren’t forgotten and I want them to be able to rent a nice home they can call their own even if they can’t afford to buy one, I want renters to have rights, hospitals to be well funded and I want access to either decent support or a job for those who need one.
I WANT what’s fair and I want it now. I would say this is the end of my rant but lets face it, its not, its just the end for tonight.
