Pensions

Dear Peg and Family,
I overheard a conversation the other day that really set me thinking, part of it included the extraordinary fact that some families here have not held down a job for some three generations. What a terrible inditement to anyone. They have been on welfare for all of their families living memory. It’s absolutely unbelievable that today this can happen. There are jobs out there, but sometimes you don’t need to be too picky. We have idle youths sitting around in the towns and cities. All drawing the unemployed benefit, however offer them a low paid job and their behaviour and attitude is so bad, that no employer would want them on his payroll. They have now fulfilled their obligation to look for work. They can now put their feet up again and continue to draw the benefit. Yet we are able to bring large groups of Polynesians over to New Zealand for six month stints to work in the horticultural area. They are extremely grateful for this chance to obtain work. It would be too easy to say to our tired youth, ‘Your next pay cheque will be from a country orchard’, ‘Here is the address’. ‘Get on your bike’.
The one thing that bothers me, is that we actually give these people a vote, so like it or like it not, we are in fact actually perpetuating the system. If you take this a step further, it’s obvious that they are so conditioned by this way of life, they now think that everything they ever need, is going to be given to them. Whether it be housing, food, and of course, discretionary spending money. All you need to do, to prolong this situation. Just keep on giving your vote to the Party that offers the most to the losers of this world. If you don’t understand, they’re the folk who have decided to live permanently on a benefit. You don’t have to be a genius to work out, that those receiving the benefit will always vote this way. And the Party that is guilty of this selfish doctrine, has it in their manifesto. Actually, they have the power to drag down and destroy our country. We have many examples in the world today where some people think that the world owes them a living. Greece For one stands out, if they don’t listen and take on board the advice and remedial action they being handed on a plate. They will have to live with the results, which could mean in the future. No Benefits.
To carry on down the path we seem to be heading, you need money which has to come from somewhere. All I hear is, ‘Tax the Rich Pricks’, sounds good, but this is not actually a bottomless pit of money. Even for one to become rich, you need to give people some incentive to become so, in the first place. It’s so easy to sit on the sideline and be a critic against commonsense, when your real agenda is to become a politician, and get on board the gravy train.
We have today something that’s loosely called the Domestic Purposes Benefit. In most cases it works well and covers situations where a mother with a dependant child is given an allowance which can be justified. However the father in these situations also has a part to play, but more too often he remains hidden. Like it or like it not, he should be named, and is expected to pay his part in the upbringing the child that he took part in bringing into the world. For some mothers this is not enough, they blatantly go ahead and have another child or two out of wedlock. Wow! This benefit was not meant to be a lifestyle, and that’s exactly what some have now deemed it should be.
The giving industry of today has grown into a monster. We have in this town some of the Country’s biggest givers. Some have grown so large that they actually have large warehouses holding their food, which they hand out free. The art of giving makes some people feel good. No matter what happens, they jump to the chance of handing out freebies. The media also play their part and campaign to make one feel guilty if you don’t contribute, and prolong this way of life.
Love from Christchurch,   Wally.
