Whale’s Budgeting Tips for the Poor, Ctd

This is getting fun…finding ways for the poor to save money rather than the solutions proposed by useful idiots who think that the answer to poverty is gifting them more money.

Poverty is a disease that can, in this country be eliminated through hard work.

Let me tell you a couple of stories to explain. The first will be about my father.

Many on the left like attack me by attacking my father. Let me tell you the short version of his story shall I.

My dad had to grow up real fast. His family lived in a state house in Mt Roskill. At age 14 his father quit the family…I know little about his contributions to the family before that day but I know all about what he did. You see this tough guy…who is now dead…quit the family and walked out on my dad, his younger brother and sister and their mother. For good measure he took all the furniture from the house and for some strange reason thought a note stuck in some false teeth on the kitchen bench would be funny.

My father and his family were now destitute in an era when divorce placed a stigma on the family and when there was no such thing as welfare. At age 15 my father made a decision to get a job in a butcher’s shop. Instead of wages he took meat for pay so that his family could eat. At age 15 he was providing for his family in a way that his father never had.

Then his Mother hooked up with another fellow. Who detested the way that Dad provided for the family and so made the call that either my dad leave or he left. My father’s mother chose her new man and my father had to leave to live with his grandmother and grandfather. His grandfather Harry had only one leg, having lost it at Gallipoli, but he still worked, as did his grandmother. For my father his real parents in deeds rather than genetics were his grandparents.

then when my dad was old enough to go the seventh form, a requirement in those days to attend university, rather than the free for all these days they were faced with a choice. Seventh form attendance in those days at Mt Roskill Grammar required the parents to pay for the years tuition. His parents decided that rather than further his education he could actually leave school and get a job. Once again when he needed the support of his parent he was yet again abandoned by them. Now that he was unable to attend university he instead went tech and obtained his accountancy qualifications and became a Chartered Accountant.

Every time I see some socialist fuck-head write that my father was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that for some reason unrelated to the facts that I was too I get really fucked off. Now that there are more people than ever before reading my site I can now tell the truth and know that it will stick. My Dad had every excuse known to modern socialists to be a dropkick and continue the cycle but he decided in strength of character and hard work. He decided to be a much better father than the dropkick loser he had to endure.

This is the beauty of New Zealand…where a state house kid, from a broken family, living on the bones of his arse could rise to become the President of a major political party. Where he could travel the world and meet the President of the United States, become personal friends with the Prime Minister of Australia and count many world leaders as confidantes and friends.

I am proud of my Dad as his upbringing was one I never had and one he made sure I never would.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
