I see so many problems in our current society from someone over 50
My discussion is about If your a poor Australian over 50 being told by job networks and employers that you probably will never work again as is the case for many,many people. You can't afford housing so you sleep on someones couch of in a car or under a bridge can afford 1 meal a day or if you do have housing can't afford electricity or gas, Then your afraid to go outside because of the multi-cultural gangs roaming the neighborhood,Are you better off going and committing a victim-less crime to spend in jail

If you get locked up, you do not get to choose your cellmate therefore you could end up getting put in with the thugs.

At least you will get a few square meals a day.

The difference between poor but proud and independent Australian and a jailbird is that the latter has no self respect and is dependent on others while constantly blaming society for his/her own decisions.

100,000 homeless I believe. That can be turned around subject to no drugs.

Salvos and see if they can help the homeless person get off the street.

What about a country town where the living is much cheaper and easier for all sorts of reasons and s/he can grow food for subsistence and independence?

On the beach...

your missing one key point. Technology advancement catches out those born between 1950s to right this very moment. Its fine for us who had the chance or opportunity to keep up with the flow, however there are still many Australians still having trouble with centrelink computer's and the elderly are having the hardest time of it.

While most of us are in tune with the global situation, that 100.000 homeless is going to increase as the have gots hold the course of events, which the whole world knows just too well. Japan USA, UK,etc...are seeing more people displaced as our political systems bend under the strain...hence like I've said before...( We have never had this many people on the planet before)..and the fall out of displaced people will continue.

I guess the rich will just have to count the numbers, and in the mean time, enjoy the human meat grinder......and try not to worry when they are forced to (hold you up) while their bodies on the streets gets in your way...hence why most have to go to jail in the first place.

People of the world are making a very dangerous situation for themselves and the problem falls squarely on (too fast too soon)

Remember, the human race has only just taken off its baby boots....try and keep that in mind.

To 'Onthebeach' and 'Under One God' and others -

Clearly classist oppression and a common desire to 'kick at the poor and underprivileged when down' is still in fashion for the wealthier classes of Australia to engage in.

Such behaviour makes me wonder whether the same bunch often play 'spot & mock the down-syndrome personís cross-eyed look" and "impersonate-mock the uneducated-dumb sounding speech of the retarded persons" or maybe "spot the 'Koori-Bogan' at centerlink"

I HOPE NOBODY is ACTUALLY considering that so
me difference actually exists between 'poor white' and 'poor black'.

On that note, I wonder if the class-twit idiots holding this view understand that the same mockeries and same characteristics of the poor white person in jail freely bashed for laughs [poor speech, poor education, no teeth, stupidity] are identically and abundantly found in the thousands of "POOR INDIGENOUS Australians" who also end up in and out of prison all their lives often for identical reasons to the white person's case.

These descriptions describe the average Indigenous Australian as well as poor white Australians ALIKE whether in jail or not.

Does the intention then to mock, demoralize, strip of ALL sense of worth which is directed to the white group . . . ALSO KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY apply to and encompass the Indigenous inmates?

Within that 'sticky, muddled and awkward world that is your mind" KNOW THIS -

Your logic and actions REVEAL you to be a racist, a bigot and prejudice person of all manners.

Just because you hide (even from your own mind's explicit sense) all forms of that prejudiced thinking and beliefs other than those involving the white race but especially the 'poorer white classes' . . .

. . . your guilt and extreme increasing population of actual committed crimes of elitism/prejudice Acts . . . IS NOT DISSOLVED or dismissed BUT in fact when one day ALL is revealed to ALL clearly, your now hidden acts will become seen to be "VIOLENT murderous racist/classist inhumanness'.
