There are so many elderly out there doing it tough because they have disabilities, especially women who have slipped between the cracks.
They have worked all their life, paid taxes and employed others. They have bought up a family. And this is how we repay them? No food, no home, sick and desperate.
Scott Morrison, I am not sure you are even aware what is happening. And that is an utter disgrace.
Get the elderly off the street. Give them adequate medical care. This is a disgrace. How do you sleep at night?

Labor seems adrift
Labor and their supporters, bereft of any new ideas and captured by socialist ideologies, are struggling to make a political impression. As is with failure the Labor orphans attack the process and the true believers appear to be thinning quicker than Donald Trump's hair.
Their attempts to redistribute wealth required new taxes and an increase in the old ones. The ethos in that initiative was totally rejected at the last election and the title of progressive was for some, a crown of thorns.
Their lack of enthusiasm and candour during question time had some of their backbenchers grabbing for the whip in hope that a well placed whack would get their minds back on the job.
Sadly the term flogging a dead horse comes to mind when assessing their current form and maybe an extended spell in the paddock for a few might freshen them up a tad.

Put easy money to work
There is no doubt about it. I'm in a depressed state. The government's economic strategy - low interest rates and easy credit - is flawed; their belief that the lowering of rates leads to growth is a failure. There has been little effect on the economy.
Whatever little extra growth that might occur, will be offset by "cheap money" made available by banks and lenders to local and overseas borrowers on the Australian and overseas currency markets.
The tax cut made as a whole leave Australians poorer and those on top income brackets richer.
With the advent of rock bottom cash rates, time is ripe for the government to borrow locally and revamp the financial sector by putting taxpayers' money to work.

Kind and caring
Thank you to Paul Rothe at Milton Hospital. So few times do people who deserve a thank you or praise for doing their job with a caring, kind attitude that I thought I would do a big shout out to those people. Dr Paul Rothe, you are a caring, kind, dedicated person with empathy and persistence. Your brilliant treatment of our Dad, Barry Maude, under your care we could not fault. Thank you seems too little to say, but know the work you do does not go unnoticed.
To all the staff at Milton Hospital, who our Dad had the pleasure of your care, you all do such a wonderful job and we are so grateful for your professionalism, your time and kindness that you show and your smile you have on your faces even though you have had a long, hard day.
Thank you from Graham, Jane, Carol and David.

Men should butt out
When you boil it all down abortion is a decision between a woman and her doctors. All the rest should butt out. Should we have a community forum if a male is to have a vasectomy, or use a condom?
An abortion is hard enough and complicated enough for the woman involved and it is her decision. Men particularly butt out. You've had your input.
