SHOULD RELIGIONS HELP CRIMINALS LIE?

MEMO: Welfare Agencies
There have been some questions raised by social workers about Accommodation providers needing to first seek approvals from applicants to investigate their past or current pending criminal record, however we reserve the right to do our own checks on applicants honesty in relation to former or current criminal activity, drug addictions, drug dealing or alleged offences and to refuse approvals if we deem the misinformation used to obtain our initial approval turns out to be of a material nature & importance to make us believe the applicant will be unsuitable in maintaining the peace & good order in our houses. We do not seek approvals from applicants to make these inquiries except those needed to get a police report.

We expect all welfare agencies and staff to provide us with any material information which might make them believe the applicant will be a potential danger to our other clients or management. In our opinion the keeping of confidentiality of any serious known criminal behaviour, drug addiction or infectious disease will not be seen as any defence to helping desperate yet unsuitable persons obtaining accommodation.

We have been informed by some clients that they have been encouraged by some agencies to omit vital criminal history during their application process and we see this policy especially from Christian Church organisations to fly against the face of their own tenets upon which their churches are based.

In our opinion it should not be the responsibility of churches or welfare organisations to aid and abet proven high risk criminals to continue in their deceptive & unsocial behaviours towards others in order to help them into group accommodation and in the process put at risk others who wish to continue to live a safe & peaceful life.

We have already ceased dealing with the Salvos for which the reasons are well documented in Gillysrooms.blogspot.com

IMO its best to accept that some people need to learn the hard way about how they should behave if they too wish to earn the privilege of having good safe and affordable accommodation. For those that are unable or unwilling to reform themselves into better citizens, then we suggest Churches & Welfare Agencies let them find out for themselves that they will need to adjust themselves to living in cold cars, tents and expensive caravan parks.

CENTRELINK RORT GONE

I'd like to congratulate the Abbott govt for eventually removing a Centrelink rort the ALP would not remove after I alerted the Centrelink Fraud Department several years ago but was told by them that it was not their job to police the rort costing the Welfare Budget millions.

The rort I can now reveal which i could not reveal previously so not to give others the opportunity to rort it involved those receiving rent assistance to stop paying their landlords rent yet continue receiving the rent assistance of about $64 pw for several months if not for years as the onus was on the recipient to advise Centrelink that they had moved or no longer renting.

The rort also involved people on unemployment or other pensions living at parents or other family home or homeless by choice to front up to a welfare agencies claiming they were living on streets or in their car and requesting assistance with finding accommodation in a rooming house which the Welfare Agency would provide them with either a bond or two weeks rent in advance for the landlord and then when the landlord signed their certificate for rental assistance would stay two weeks and disappear back on streets or back home with the fortnightly assistance intact every fortnight direct into their account while telling Centrelink they still lived at their new address. We would continue getting Centrelink mail for months or years despite sending the mail back with appropriate notation. The Fraud Department was not interested because they took the view that landlords might be telling porkies, but really why would any landlord of a real tenant want to tell lies?

Some tenants also tried to seek a refund of the W.A assistance after booking 2 weeks emergency accommodation but then wanting to leave after a few days .... these are just some of the many welfare rorts the so called "homeless" get up to get free assistance from a whole range of services designed to help the really needy. Will be revealed in my book one day.

RBA - WARNING TO BUILDERS & DEVELOPERS

IT SEEMS THE RBA IS SETTING UP TO TRAP BUILDERS WHO TAKE ON TOO MANY PROJECTS BEFORE THE RATES ARE HIKED BY 100%. This method of destruction is not new and will trap many builders and developers who take on long term developments and do not get out before interest rates go up.

Speculation about interest rates will continue as always and is often used by banks and brokers to achieve their financial trading goals from time to time, well every day really. I wont go too technical so as not to confuse you more, but there is a lot of money made out of speculation, even when rates are stable.

Some rather big groups have been caught before & the Abbey Capital Property Group circa 1979 comes to mind when they & Mainline could not complete the almost finished 46 Level Tower at 500 Bourke Street office tower which they had to sell for a 50% Off bargain basement price to the NAB. Lots of smaller developers went broke then and again during 1989-90 and every few years every time the RBA want to slow down wages inflation caused by politicians silly policies. 

It could be argued that voters deserve the egotistical politicians and their political parties they keep revoting in after they vote them out a few years earlier because of lies, incompetence, fraud & pride etc Problem is there is no choice but the main rabble of well meaning people who end up looking like con artists on both sides.

Some developers will make money before the next GFC or RBA interest rate hike will see more new home owners lose their shirts, but I argue that there will be more losers than winners except for the jobs created during the speculation period.

We have politicians trying to convince us the 2% unemployed over the usual 4% [full employment] want jobs when we all really know they just want a secure income. What the politicians don't seem to do is discuss their plans to create extra jobs with the RBA which will invariably hike interest rates 100% higher if that 2% were to suddenly find new jobs and in so doing cause a potential wages pressure on general wages which with the help of unions would become reality.

So my question to the brains trust at Treasury is: would it not be cheaper to pay the 4 + 2% unemployed a 'stay at home option payment fee' to keep interest rates low at current rates rather than risk increasing interest rates by 100% causing grief for the other 94% of people in jobs and with mortgage loans?  Why do we need to help increase revenue for the depositors as the banks will still earn their margins surely?

Sure ive left out a lot of other varioable in setting official interest rates
but I still feel id like see some economic debate about my proposal.

NO MORE DONATIONS PLEASE

Councils
Corporate Donors
Trustee Companies


We are sick and tired of the Salvation Army, ANCHOR, EACH, MAROONDAH & DANDENONG PSYCH UNITS, WAYYS, CHL, HANOVER & other welfare organisations you support for sending us seriously bad criminals to house in our last and only emergency accommodation facility in Lilydale in Victoria after we sold off others in the Dandenong region a couple years ago for exactly the same reasons. Just look at the good accommodation Jill Meagher's murderer was enjoying in Bacchus Marsh..

We are now seeking out donors and asking Corporate Australia and Council Grant Commissions to put conditions on the use of the $millions you make available to such organizations who in our opinion are misusing your charitable giving programs by assisting seriously bad criminals which even Victoria Police are now refusing to assist us with when they assault our staff and other residents.

The privacy guidelines are in our opinion being used to protect and assist the worst offenders in our community and we cannot screen applicants and carry out costly police checks in emergency situations.

If you wish emergency accommodation to continue to be available for the genuinely homeless then we need the help from the donors who give so generously to these organisations so the funds are used responsibly because we are being hammered from ever side by the Consumer Affairs with silly fines they cant even explain themselves, the State Government with ridiculous regulations restricting numbers to 2 strangers per household, the local councils and the media who only get one side of the story.

Enough is enough we want action and are seeking the support of financial donors and Estate bequest givers. Trustee Companies etc

We will also come out and give talks on the problems we experience on a daily basis dealing with the agencies level of service you support. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

STOP I WANT TO GET OUT

I have decided I want to get out of providing accommodation for the homeless and move into the tourism area, but I really cant see how I'm going to achieve such a change in direction. Government red tape and regulation continues to strangle my interest in what I been doing for over 20 years now. I do believe that the socialist government in Victoria should be the ones who need to provide more accommodation for the mentally ill and the serious criminals they release prematurely into our so-called free society.

In my opinion many of the homeless have only themselves to blame when they find themselves without a home or roof over their heads and the welfare agencies should not be helping to cover up these peoples serious behavioral problems by referring them to rooming houses and omitting crucial details about these dangerous people.

The Salvation Army is one group I have been very critical of over the last 12 months at least and now the ANCHOR Community Welfare Group in Lilydale are in the same league when they recently offered glowing references to a woman who had proven on many occasions that she had serious behavioral and drug use problems, had held up many people by using a blood filled syringe, assaulted every member of her own family, had her 3 children taken away from her by Human Services, was a compulsive lier, has HIV and has a   continuing relationship with a serious murderer who shot and cut up his victim after her death. The fact that the social worker omitted all these details and she was still prepared to support her housing application and keep all these vital details from my manager and have her move in with a woman and two young daughters was inexcusable. If you cant trust these social workers, then who can you trust.

The reality is that many financial donors to the various Homelessness Groups and Charities are unknowingly supporting the worst types of people in our community and the socialist government in Victoria continues to provide subsidized housing accommodation to the worst of the worst in our society... The TV program HOUSOS is only a light hearted comical example of a much worse situation in those Housing Commission areas which our taxation system supports.

Over the years I have spoken with many genuine women who have gone to the Salvos for housing, food and clothing assistance yet they have been treated like the worst; yet from my experience the Salvos have assisted many of Australia's worst offenders by covering-up and support providing $1000's to pay for their movements from one rooming house to the next because they could not respect the rights of others to a peaceful life, each time being evicted for disruptive behavior or drug & criminal related behavior. The State Governments have continued to favour these types for housing instead or helping more of those genuine cases.

Of course the homelessness statistics are not really as bad as stated publically by political advocates as I have also experienced many women with children going to Hanover and other welfare groups falsely claiming domestic abuse and then asking us for permission to let their 'abusive' partners to move in too. This was a regular occurrence in the Dandenong region when we had emergency accommodation premises in that region. The Salvos regularly sent us ex-criminals just out on parole or others just out of jail. If anyone recalls the accommodation provided to Jill Meagher's murderer you might better understand the inequity against other more deserving people. Now I am not saying these people don't need accommodation, however from my experience many were a problem from day one and had no respect for anyone and had certainly not learnt much if anything whilst serving their jail sentences.

Then we had the Dandenong Psychiatric Hospital Wards who would tell us a load of crap about how well recovered many of their inmates where, just so they could get them into our accommodation, when we later found out most were still on suicide watch and our inexperienced caretakers had to keep watch over their possible suicide. 

This sorry state of affairs continues today and we still get Maroondah Hospital trying to get patients discharged into our care so they can move them out of their expensive beds into private Accommodation sometimes using EACH another eastern suburbs welfare agency as the medium to get them into the community.  

So instead of encouraging the creation or the keeping of such private operators to continue, the CVA and other government departments seek to penalize operators at every turn. Well I've had a gutful and want to get out....so Tattslotto might be the only way at the moment and if anyone out there has any ideas I'll look at all options.

INVITATION TO USA CITIZENS TO IMMIGRATE TO ST ARNAUD

From the stats I have gleened it seems like your US government takes about 40% of your GDP in taxes as against 23.6% in Australia and we get annoyed, so I can see why your all totally annoyed about your government taxing policies. I must admit that I believe Australia must benefit from some of that tax grab and expenditure but 40% seems too high by far.
One solution for you young bucks who are not silicon valley types is to consider moving to Australia as I also promote St Arnaud Vic 3478 a western Victorian country town which during the 1860′s produced an estimated 360,000ozs of gold, most of which was derived from one large mine. The Lord Nelson mine produced an estimated 320,000ozs of gold to a maximum depth of 786m. Most of the other mines did not extend beyond 200m depth, and very little exploration has occurred at St Arnaud beneath 200m. And it was high grade per ton of dirt.
So I have self appointed myself as unofficial King, ambassador and immigration minister of the region to try entice new exploration and new residents to come live in this great little town. Mind you the town which never floods is surrounded by millions of acres of grazing pastoral holdings needing young new farmers to take over before others move in. So I hearterly invite interested parties to have a closer look on google and internet sites showing history of the town of approx 3000 people and every major Australian bank still has a branch in the town should tell you lots about the underlying prosperity in the town.We have farming and silo manufaturers needing new blood to take over and expand manufacturing. Why not, it Ted of Everything Attachments can do it why not in Australia….so if you getting sick of all the BS…. come right over and come and have a look see….
I’ll even give you a free room  for a week in one of our 112 year old hotel buildings in St Arnaud not modern. but sure high n dry. There is even a modern motel business for sale in Town …lots of opportunities for the positive thinkers and workers in the US of A and we speak the same language….
and have I forgotten, we even have the largest Turkey hatching, raising and Turkey bacon processing businesses in Australia located in St Arnaud in Victoria.

Mining History
With the discovery of alluvial gold at St Arnaud in 1855 the quartz reef outcropping source was quickly located. By 1860, 47 hard rock mines were in operation. Most of these initially closed at 60-90m in depth, due to either problems with handling the ground water or that sulphide-rich ores were encountered which could not be treated with the simple gravity technology used at that time.
As these mines, which were located on small leases, were closed in the late 1850’s and early 1860’s the leases were quickly consolidated into larger groups and reopened under new management when sufficient capital was raised to purchase the pumping equipment to support these larger claims. These new entities then produced until the sulphide content of the ores caused either closure or further amalgamation. Specialised sulphide treatment plants were established later and sulphide concentrates yielded up to 50g/t Au.
Several lines of reefs were worked and were known as the West Field, Bristol, New Chum, Nelson and East Field lines. The West and East Fields were of minor importance. The Bristol line was 1.5km in length and was worked to a maximum depth of between 90 and 240m in five mines. This line had the richest alluvials associated with it and the upper part of the Bristol mine produced at a similar grade and tonnage to the Lord Nelson mine further east.
The New Chum line was followed over a strike length of 750m and worked to a maximum depth of 240m in three mines. This line had four parallel reefs. The mines were reportedly closed due to the difficulty in treating sulphide ores.
The Nelson line produced the most gold and was worked over a strike length of 3.2km and to a maximum depth of 685m in the Lord Nelson Mine. In total, 21 mines were in production on the line. Individual reefs were worked over widths of between 0.75m to 7.3m. The Lord Nelson was the only mine to produce from sulphides ores below a depth of 120m. This mine produced from up to 10 parallel reefs over a period stretching from 1856 to 1916. This production came from a 240m strike length of reefs within one mining lease.

DID SALVOS SEND US DANGEROUS CRIMINALS FOR CHRISTMAS?

DID SALVOS SEND US DANGEROUS CRIMINALS FOR CHRISTMAS?

Not a week ago the Salvos from Sunshine give us a call to house a couple who they say could not live with relatives...as usual they were behaved and 'presented well' is the term...I call it high level deception. The Salvos assure us they ok just need a good place to live.
Christmas Eve at about 4pm, police called to a serious domestic and woman taken away from Rooming House ..... Bf had blood on his hands due to punching a brick wall it seems and very very agitated and we warned him of eviction possibility if he disturbed our other residents.
Woman released by police and threatens to come back with armed broady boys to collect her things. Police alerted again back at 11pm and it is alleged someone gets knocked out by a neighbour and the bf is arrested by police and released again only to returns at 4.45am to take revenge for eviction by kicking the managers door.... girls crying..... guys very upset its 6.30am police take him away and it might have been Xmas for the staff of the Salvos but two of their people turned a peaceful household into a Xmas Hell because we are being used by salvos to house their criminals they want to get rid out of their refuges. 
True story based on preliminary information....maybe updated later
