Welfare isn't a choice for some. "It's shameful and it's embarrassing.

Independent Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie does now what it's like and she spoke of her fears of what life would be like for people forced to do with even less in the Senate last night.
"It's not a choice for us to be on welfare," Senator Lambie said.
"It's shameful and it's embarrassing. We do it, not because we want to, but because circumstances put us there."
"For you to take more money off those people, you have no idea how bloody tough it is."

There has been much talk of the decoupling of the government's welfare cuts from its childcare changes.
Most of the cuts are now housed in a third piece of legislation being debated by the Senate.
Most of the people in Parliament have no direct experience of what it is like to receive a welfare payment.

Why are we still arguing about this in 2017, it continues in Canada, in Australia an many more developed countries. It's our right, we don't even let animals go through such pain, Why?
Are we so frightened of death, that we can't allow anyone to deliver it.

Chuck Berry, who with his indelible guitar licks, brash self-confidence and memorable songs about cars, girls and wild dance parties did as much as anyone to define rock ’n’ roll’s potential and attitude in its early years, died on Saturday. He was 90.

The St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri confirmed his death. Mr. Berry died at his home near Wentzville, Mo., about 45 miles west of St. Louis. The department said it responded to a medical emergency and he was declared dead after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.

While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they knew themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.

Dutton says stick to knitting, but if your a miner in WA getting involved in an election, good luck

Miners killed Brendon Grylls and Dutton never said a word. (Dutton since WA election says business should stick to knitting when he doesn't agree with them)
Outgoing WA Nationals leader Brendon Grylls knew he was in for an almighty fight when he made a bold push to slap BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto with a tax hike that would cost the mining giants about $3 billion a year.
Grylls expected political bruises. But he never expected to lose his seat.

The stunning downfall of Western Australia's best retail politician – the biggest scalp of Labor's crushing defeat of the Liberal government – highlights how effective a six-month, anti-mining tax campaign waged by the miners really turned out to be.

Grylls wanted to lift the mining levy from 25¢ per tonne to $5 per tonne. And initially he found support from an electorate cynical about big business and agreeable to companies paying more tax.

But by polling day on March 11 it became apparent the fear fanned over potential job losses and risk to investment in WA had worked.

World is awash with investment cash but they're not investing.

Wages are not moving, so spending is limited, meanwhile the government is refusing wage rises and supporting cuts to penalty rates. Logic has gone out the window.An inconvenient truth gets in the way of the company tax cut chants:
