People are whining about not being allowed to go out and they are seriously disturbed because their ability to get smashed avo on toast has been curtailed? . The fatcats are grizzling about no pay increases. Raylene Castle " generously " agreeing to a 50% paycut to $400,000?
 
I just took a hit of $1200  a year - it is a disaster for me and the loss of income from a client is a disaster for them and their massive rural community.
 
All the money going to unemployed dropbeats who sit at home and watch TV all day while the Nation sees fruit falling to the ground and having to import labour to pick it up? It makes my blood boil.
 
I am so upset right now. That $1200 is the difference between paying my bills and not paying my bills. And it is not just about me.  Regional Australia is already on a knife edge right now and the people in the bush will lose out. Again. 
 
I admire Scott Morrison for what he is doing and confronting but,  heavens,  Australia does actually exist outside the cities.
 
Our Governments seem to have morphed in to some kind of demi gods and the people from the Regions are the Forgotten People.
 
Oh well, I got that off my chest but I have to say that my $1200 loss is more valuable to me than Raylene Castle's $400,000 loss will be to her when she takes her 50% pay cut.
 
As always, the regions suffer. The people from the regions suffer and the city folk march on, break the rules because they feel entitled.
 
Heavens, they probably punt $1200 on one dinner out.
 
To me and to this client,  this is a big set back.
 
My $1200 hit is a nothing burger to the people in the cities. To those of us in the bush it is a massive hit.
 
Our farmers are struggling. People seem to have forgotten the drought.  
 
People in Australia are still living in tents because their homes were destroyed and they have no ability to rebuild. People seem to have forgotten that too.  
 
We have become a country so preoccupied with the Chinese Virus ( yes I will call it that because that is what is is and always was ) that we have forgotten the victims of a real and present tragedy: our people from the bush. From the country. The people who still sit in a tent or a makeshift house and have no access to decent living standards while someone , recently returned from a cruise, moans about the 5 star hotel they are put up in. And getting their laundry done. 
 
Maybe the poor people from the bush need to pretend that they got off a cruise ship and they could isolate in a hotel instead of a tent?
And I believe, in my heart that these people would NEVER do that, because that would be wrong. 
 
We bushies don't lie and don't milk the system.
 
We have mucked in, carried on and made the best of our lives since the First Settlers. 
 
We have too much integrity.
