BASH THE FILTHY BENNIE AGAIN


Cancel dole after year, says Bennett
The Government is considering cancelling unemployment benefits after a year and forcing beneficiaries to reapply. Social Development Minister Paula Bennett unveiled the radical proposal a day after revelations that 300 long-term beneficiaries are receiving more than $1000 a week from the taxpayer. It was revealed yesterday that the Harris family in Christchurch had received unemployment and sickness benefits for 25 years and recently received special-needs grants from Work and Income to fence their swimming pool and put new tyres on their 2007 Chrysler saloon. The Harris family, which has links to gang activity dating back to the 1970s, receives $1000 a week from the taxpayer and has been given more than $30,000 in special-needs grants since 2000. Former gang leader Darryl Harris, who has been on a benefit since 1984, was jailed in 1991 for the shooting of two Highway 61 gang members. Ms Bennett said yesterday that she was planning changes, including a proposal to cancel the unemployment benefit of any beneficiary after 12 months.

Genius move by Bennett - GENIUS! Highlight the most expensive welfare families (even if $20 per kid per day isn't riding the pigs back), have the criminal details of one of the families leaked to the media, stir in some talkhate radio pap and hey presto we've got all beneficiaries facing one years dole. It's just so simplistic, so easy to manipulate our national hobby of bennie bashing, it goes alongside our other favourite national past times like alcoholism and domestic violence. Fronted by the poster girl for National Party solo mum tough love, we are once again allowing knee jerk emotive stoked hatred to justify sweeping hard right economic policy as social policy.

We have 40 million sheep. 4 million can vote.

Most don't get anywhere near a grand a week and this is really just the whanau-ora cut the bennies off the dole bullshit we've come to expect from neanderthal's workin for da man...for our maori big business corporate oppressors we have this little message from marx

IN DEPICTING THE MOST GENERAL PHASES OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROLETARIAT WE TRACED THE MORE OR LESS VEILED CIVIL WAR RAGING WITHIN EXISTING SOCIETY, THIS WAS INDEED AN UNENVIABLE FATE FOR ANY THINKER-TO AROUSE SUCH INTENSE FEELINGS OF HATRED FOR THE ENEMY THAT SUPPORTERS AND OPPONENTS ON TALK-HATE PAP RADIO COULD ONLY COMMUNICATE BY TRADING INSULTS WITH EACH OTHER.SO BE IT.

...UP TO THE POINT WHERE THAT WAR BREAKS OUT INTO OPEN REVOLUTION AND WHERE THE VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF THE MAORI CAPITAL CLASS OF OPPRESSORS-BOURGOISIE LAYS THE FOUNDATION FOR THE SWAY OF THE PROLETARIAT!

Side issue but relevant.

Shouldn't the state remove the children from the Harris household?

Admitted petty drug user.
White Power supremicist.
Numerous violent offences.
On a benefit since 1984!!!!

Raising his grandchildren because his children are violent, drug using white power thugs.

Now who raised his children to be that way?
Now who is going to raise his grandchildren that way?

Say what you want about Poorer Benefit, I don't think this man is any way suitable to raise 8 kids.

Why shouldn't I feel a little resentful about supporting a whole litter of *grandkids* when I can't afford to have even a single child of my own?

If I wanted to feel good about paying for someone else's breeding I could finance a whole African family to the tune of $1 / kid / day. And I would get some value for money from the photos and letters that they send back. Unlike the faceless blackhole that is NZ Welfare.

In a week this story will be fish and chip paper. The names forgotten. But I will still be fronting the taxman to fund their life choices while deferring my own family dreams. Just who is being bashed again?

The class forces are more volatile than most of the shit head anonymae commenting on this site know or admit. Tipping points a plenty are in store with climate change and ongoing instability of global finance capital. The old red flags are going to be quite handy over the next decade.

Which is a separate issue altogether - to use this example and leak the criminal details to the media to create the fury smokescreen while National plan to limit the dole to one year while privatizing social welfare is just genius and shows in your post how effective the bennie bash spin is, let's look at how easily manipulated JP has become...

...isn't incredible - JP feels that HE is the one being attacked by the plan to privatize social welfare and justify dole limited to one year so enraged has he become because of National Party bennie bash spin.

I love how easily pushed your buttons are, I wish I could be so easily led JP, I really do. I wish I couldn't see how obvious and predictable your manufactured anger really is, but alas I think.

You want to have a debate about the suitability and legitimate concerns of raising children by alleged white supremicist criminals via welfare, have that debate. But don't pretend that $20 per kid, per day is living high on the pig and that this case justifies implementation of hard right social welfare privatization economic policy as social policy.

Your predictable knee jerk is just so tedious.

You are Bomber with you quasi religious belief in climate warming and the urge to 'suppress' any dissenting views from criminalization of free speech (except your own).

This woman is UGLY every which way. All that 'I used to be a beneficiary, I pulled myself up from the gutter crap, Oim a Westie en preard of ut" bullshit. She's got plenty in common with the Crusher Collins. And before anyone jumps to the idea that I'm inferring they're aesthetically ugly I'm not - though you can be forgiven (because as Paul Henry might say - they're fat and ugly with asses like the back end of a bathtub - but of course its hormonal - its not down to greed. Both have succumbed to greed. Beneficiaries are not intoitled to that luckshry.
LEave 'em to it. They'll fuck themselves up before too long. UGLY UGLY UGLY
