Or school fetes, garage sales etc. It also stigmatise the user, marking them as addicts or worse in the eyes of the public. It's also a cash cow for the LNP, with cash flowing into donations. You can assume that participating stores are all LNP donors too.

People using it report: the card is restricted to certain stores, often the more expensive ones. EFTPOS minimum limits & % apply to the card. You can't use it to shop at markets, farm gates, butcher shops, small grocer's, baker's or op shops - all the things people do to scrimp.

Just a gentle reminder that the fires in the amazon are intentional. It’s not a forest fire type situation. It’s an intentional setting ablaze of the forest by the fascist brazilian govt + agrobusiness & ranching oligarchs. Wording matters. Don’t hide who is doing this & why.

I grew up in Tamworth - never ceases to amaze me how they blindly continue to support him. Should have gone years ago, deliberately concealing his own scandal so he could win the byelection - the contempt he’s shown for his constituents regardless of the details is a disgrace.

55 years ago, Fannie Lou Hamer did the unthinkable & challenged Mississippi's all-white delegation for the Democratic National Convention. While she was unsuccessful, she drew national attention and four years later, became Mississippi's first Black delegate since Reconstruction.

I agree the card is designed to rip off taxpayers while it humiliates social security clients. Some of the Social Security legislation is absolutely disgraceful and it appears to be bipartisan. How did they pass laws that defy the basic tenets of our legal system?

This pisses me off. I get the mobility allowance. Bc I have MS and work. So a working woman with a chronic illness who pays a fair share of taxes has to have a card because I can't manage money or spend it on other things? This gov. can get knotted treating people this way 😤

A man just told me, with regard to my body, “we can accommodate a lot. Our elevator holds six tonnes.” And it took a lot of control to not burst into tears or dick punch him. My skin is so thin lately but honestly, can you fucking blame me?

You’re right because I suspect Morrison thinks HE is The Chosen One -and they can’t both be - but he’s not quite crazy enough to say so.

Trump: . But surely even in the dazzle of referred narcissism (the Chosen One’s chosen one), Morrison can sense Trump’s increasing derangement ? Or not? If not, we are in the most terrible strife.

If I said Mexicans were rapists, my career would be over. If I said Nazis were good people, my career would be over. If I bragged about sexual assault, my career would be over. If I said I was the chosen one, I would be institutionalized. I’m a fucking actor.
