No organisation should be exempt from paying rates. Churches state and federal government should all pay.
I was so disappointed with Dubbo MP Dugald Saunders' decision on this issue. I think this debate was far too short; not all sides were allowed to be voiced, we spend millions to save babies then spend more destroying a precious life. We have allowed death (murder to some) at both ends of the spectrum, and when life is so cheap, we will ruin our moral fibre in our society. I voted for you but when I phoned the response was abrupt and rude in dismission. Who speaks for the babies Dugald?
This is disgusting, how can this teenager be allowed to have bail? She has destroyed someone's property, she has taken away someone's ability to get to work, caused hardship and devastated a young family's life. The vehicle taken from Wheelers Lane had no insurance because the young couple are struggling. Send the lot of them to goal and throw away the key.
CHURCH DOES NOT CARE
Just wanted to say that when I asked the Dubbo parish to help me with my kids school fees in 2006 as I had cancer and was travelling back and forth to Sydney I received a great amount of opposition. I was asked details about my cancer and asked if the committee gave me relief for a year how was I going to ensure my cancer would not get worse and they would have to help me again. It was disgusting. I have not gone to Church since. I was told that between the farmers and other difficulties the Bathurst diocese was too poor to give me relief. Very sad. Thanks for reading my rant.
