Usually our daily coffee breaks are filled with meaningless chit chat and good coffee. Today we actually talked about real social issues �gasp - . The headline of the Daily Telegraph (such a respectable paper! NOT!) about Saddam's wife supposedly betrayed him sparked it off. That�s what you get for having 4 wives. Ha! We quickly moved on to greedy women and the injustice of the social security system in Australia, which I know is great in comparison to say�Iraq, but the reality is that women are popping out 3 children and sitting on their arse and getting their hair streaked and nails done on OUR tax money. There�s a methadone clinic in Kogarah and often you see the mum and dirty little kids running around the streets of Kogarah and you really want to just rescue them. And it�s all fine and well to say that looking after 3 kids is a tough job, but these women are intentionally getting preggers so that they don�t have to work, so they can get government money. What kind of environment are they bringing these children up in? What kind of society are we breeding? And it�s not just the poorer areas, wealthy families are raising bitchy kids who have everything and expect everything without having to earn it. I can�t imagine being a parent. I can�t even discipline myself, so how could I be expected to discipline my own child�

On another less depressing note (though more sadistic)� I�m thinking about doing the DB boot camp! Eeeeeek!!
