The Government’s Welfare Working Group released its report today and recommends extensive changes aimed at removing the embedded entitlement mentality behind the widespread idea that you do not have to work if you choose not to, and if you make that choice, people who do work are obliged to provide you with the means for you to live as well as if you were working.
This expansive growth of this mentality is seen in the actions of young women who choose to have fatherless babies, for this provides them with a meal ticket and income from NZ’s taxpayers that in many cases exceeds the income they would receive if they were in fact working. Leaving Cloward-Piven aside, (for such a strategy seems far beyond the capability of anyone in government or the National party to understand) its not amazing to anyone who can think logically that this is a circumstance that has led to such enormous growth in this particular welfare sector. Its the market at work. You pay people to parasite off others and breed, and widely and loudly advertise your intent to do so through pamphlets and other advertising, and guess what- many will do just that.
There is more than one side to this social trend, and that is thousands of single parent families raising their offspring in fatherless conditions, and producing the psychotic narcissistic maladjusted vandals and graffiti artists shoplifters car thieves and drug addicts who cost us all another fortune by means of so many of them going on to more serious crime and ending up behind bars.
The Working Group recommends actions to stem the flood of free loading and social destruction. But once again, Mr. Popularity won’t do the hard yards. In fact even thinking about it makes him “queasy”. Stuff reports-
Controversial proposals include requiring sole parents to look for a job once their youngest child turns three and harsh new work tests for domestic purposes beneficiaries who have additional children. Under the working group’s proposals, women who had more children when they were already on the benefit would be expected to look for work when the baby was 14-weeks-old – though Prime Minister John Key said that recommendation would be ignored.
”Personally I feel a bit queasy about that. I think that’s a step too far. I think most New Zealanders would think that’s a little on the extreme side.”
Pfffttt… Why is it “on the extreme side”? Because a lame stand for nothing loser like you thinks it is? That’s hardly a worthy substantiation of fact John Key. I’m sick of hearing this socialist loser use “extreme” as an adjective to dismiss every damn sensible idea that hard working productive people, tired of supporting a legion of bludgers and parasites and social wreckers, put forward. IIRC, he used this same word to dismiss the recommendations of the Brash lead 2025 Taskforce. Where is the rationale? Where is the counter argument to this eminently sensible suggestion?
He hasn’t got any of course, all he has is a sad compulsion to be liked, and that’s why he has to go. This lamer has the job of Prime Minister confused with winning the last man standing in a some silly television reality show. He’s never going to do the work that has to be done to return this country to economic and social sanity.
Update- I cannot see any information relating to compulsory drug testing, a requirement that I thought would have been at the top of the list. The Stuff report does say –those with drug and alcohol problems would be subject to the strictest controls if the plans are implemented in full . Does this mean regular drug testing? If anyone has any info, some advice in the comments would be appreciated.
