She bought the house with her divorce settlement during the union, but he didnt contribute to the purchase. I imagine they both contributed to liviving expeses. Girls as most of the comments seem to be aimed right at us and our need for a taller, richer, older man - prioritise money before the man now, and he might do the same to you later down the track when your boobs aren't pert enough probably from breastfeeding his children to distract him from the blandishments of all the other Sydney gold diggers.

Your life formula victory will be short lived. And I for one will be cheering the poor sod on as I move in with my pert blandishments. I do think some people forget to look at the bigger picture sometimes and that's Aristocrat Pokies For Ipad I wanted to get across in my post think SNT and Jenny expressed this well. Am with you, Maria, on prudence re: Seems there are many who have been hard done by as a result of house-prices, bad business deals, spendthrift partners, bad parents, crap govt, being born, etc etc.

Unfortunately life is risky, wherever you are, and whatever the size of your bank balance. I still believe self-pitying, cynicism and envy get one nowhere, and tend to feed on themselves so it becomes very difficult if not impossible, to be thankful for small mercies NOT mercedes!! I have recently arrived on the dating scene a few months Pokies Big Winners Y Programs Caballo077, and have found some interesting experiences.

Most are just starting to think about their future - at !! Most guys want an equal partner not a charity case who has lived for the moment through out their late 20's. Most of my male friends have payed off their mortgage or are well on their way to being financially independent - how many woman can say this?

Woundn't most people want equal partner not a charity case who has lived for the moment so they can rely on a man to look after them. I think we need to definitely educate all those men who blindly walk into a marriage thinking it is all about "love". Children are the only thing that are all about love. Robbo Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils I don't know your circumstances however I know that as I have the kids on the weekends this is the time they want to go and do things, see things and buy the occassional thing.

Now what am I meant to say to them - no, we can't do anything else except sit around this small, dumpy unit because I pay your mother enough and she should give you some money so that I can take you guys to the movies, buy you CDs, Playstation games, cool clothes for the weekend etc As much as I want to get back on the scene and meet new female companions, unfortunately as "successful" career wise as I am I am Department Head of a Financial Services Co.

I've found myself agreeing with a post delivered by Amused Female This is what leads to marriage breakdowns - pursuits of increased wealth and living beyond means to be funded by increased workloads and less family time. This enhances greed, that's why we end up in bitter disputes because each party wants to be compensated for their blood, sweat and tears in building that - whether through work, domestic duties, or otherwise.

Maybe blokes are becoming the whinging gender? Maybe they've got good reasons to whinge? I don't know what the answer is? I used to go out with a guy who made exactly four times my gross salary. The rules I devised during this time as the "poor" partner are simple:.

Never suggest going out for dinner anywhere you can't afford to go dutch.

feel free

Even the most independent woman wants a man who will dote on her, treat her like a princess, and support her and her ambitions. Oh, and if I could find a decent bloke who's also a Carlton supporter, well that would just be icing on the cake

It's fine for them to treat you, but you can't ask. Reciprocate by paying for both of you when you do things you can afford movies, take-aways, etc. Never let them give you money, or pay for your household expenses if you aren't living together. Now that I'm older and not always the 'poor' partner, I'd run a mile from anyone who broke one of these rules.

Very interesting Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils reading all these communications. I am for one can? Although I am not poor, pretty well established with a house, some investments and a good salary. The attraction is only sex with this man who is approx 50, as we enjoy more so on the conversation over a long dinner or drive, or walk. And my younger partner wanted me to make a decision to be with him so that we get married or he will move out. I'm sure there's plenty of women who get screwed by the system too, in fact, I know a few.

I'm assuming they are too busy working, running around for the kids, getting on with their lives etc. Needhelp - you're kidding aren't you? You can't decide between your rich older lover or the father of your children? Now I just have to get him to work on his gender biases I hope you realise this. Money comes and goes Goes and comes again.

Love is what will keep you together. Money on the other hand is If only to make me laugh as much as I do reading your posts. I dated a Russian emigre woman once not a mail order job.

She would get angry if I dared to ask she pay for a coffee when we went out. I got into some serious fights with her over the money issue. Her Mother couldn't conceive of a woman working and contributing to expenses.

Of course, she came from a culture where women really are "kept" and also subjugated and beaten by drunken husbands and boyfriends. Unfortunately, the Russian wasn't the only example of such an attitude in women, but she was the worst I have encountered. After we broke up and when I was dating again, I adopted a course of offering to pay for the first few drinks and dinner but if after about 4 dates I hadn't received an offer to buy for me or at least go "dutch", I walked. Even now I have female friends who let me buy drinks on a Friday night but never offer to buy for me.

The lesson I have learnt is that some women, even with feminism, apply a terrible double standard. Men are expected to be financially stable while women are allowed to spend their own and men's money and complain if they are asked to contribute.

Would Miss Benett still find Mr Darcy attractive if he did not have the extensive assets as described in "Pride and Prejudice"? After reading this blog I now have some understanding as to why it is a popular romance novel among women. Just read you post and am fascinated at how you are able to be 'not poor, pretty well established with a house, some investments and a good salary' as well as have two men chasing you when you are almost completely illiterate.

Also, I'm loving the concept of the 'devoice' - how does that work exactly, and can we get some of the whinging gender on to it? This is very true. Amused Female highlights the reality of today and argues that we should be strong and look to achieve these high expectations and enjoy life.

Do you seriously enjoy life when the reminder notices come for your bills? When your car breaks down? When your kids go to crappy schools? When your clothes start out-dating and people look at you Celebrity Hard Pokies 2018 bit funny. Of course money can bring happiness. Not money alone, but it's a significant factor.

And money also furthers one's success! Are you telling me that to avoid arguments with your partner, you're content to live a basic, no-frills life?

Our only chance at living and you're satisfied to set the bar low? I don't blame some of you - what you have been through is terrible. But we're not all like that. I'm female, 33, single, have just bought my first property, have no other debt well, a very small credit card debtown a house full of furniture etc.

You know, Do Unto Others I think most would think that's a reasonable request. Make your minds up!!! What do you want?

My brother gave me an interesting challenge. Instead of spending my time trying to win with relationships. Something that is just not happening. Why not concentrate on more on success for a while money is just too shallow a word. For the amount of work to be rejected at the Sydney dating scene. I could consolidate success, and relax enjoying the non dating aspects of life. It's too much to straddle appearing stylish, fun loving and generous, but have assets and no bad debt all at the same time.

I'm from KL, had a very well paid job. Met Kiwi, newly separated with a child; had nothing under his name but i still fell in love. Moved here bcoz he accepted a job down under. He couldn't hold any job for long; in and out of work but each paid well. Then more than 2 years ago,Kiwi tells me that he has stopped loving me as his wife but denied having anyone else, truth surfaced, he has taken another man's wife.

I was left to pack up the big house, sell it and he also gets a good share from the financial settlement, despite the fact that he did Pokies Slot Videos Paris bring anything in and just 'paid' the mortgage a few times.

Andy R - agree, money matters. People need to work to pay the bills. But, people place themselves in oppessive mortgage situations, etc that are avoidable. I don't have the problems you mention, because I don't overcommit.

Prenuptial agreements, known as "binding financial agreements", first became enforceable in Australia in with the enactment of the Family Law Amendment Act For a binding financial agreement to be binding it must be in writing signed by both parties; be given the original to one party with a copy given to the other; specify the extent of any spousal maintenance provided; and state that both parties have received specified independent legal advice and annex a certificate of an independent lawyer to that effect.

An agreement will not be binding if it was obtained by fraud, or was made under duress, by mistake, or by virtue of undue influence, or if it is impracticable for all or part of the agreement to be carried out, or if there has been a material change in the care of a child leading to hardship, or if a party engaged in unconscionable conduct when making the agreement, such as where one spouse is at a disadvantage, the other spouse knows it and the agreement runs contrary to good conscience.

Yes you are still expected to treat them like princesses but the'll treat you like a king. I would appreciate it if you people didn't laugh at my misfortune. Having my ferrari out of action for an afternoon was not exactly my idea of fun. My yacht serves quite fine for that purpose.

But there are times when only a ferrari will do because the bombshell I'm after has gone inland and I'm not allowed to moor my hovercraft in Sydney harbour.

Miffed - keep your head in the sand, you sound clueless about family law matters that involve the combination of children and divorce. Joe - it Pokies Meaning Yom Teruah a hard situation to be in and by no means am I suggesting you not have fun with your kids on the weekend. In my experience the kids have empathy when they understand that child support payments are meant to be spent on them!

DOTS just to Authenticate. I dont have a lot of time today to read all your posts so I can stoke the fire also I am going out tonight so I guess I will be one of the first for tomorrows post. I think it starts with living in the US as you cant have a bullet proof one in OZ.

I've been saying this for a while now and everyone thinks I'm joking.

I reckon there is a great market for a Marriage Counsellor and Financial Planner in a one-stop-shop. Really over the few individuals who turn these blogs into a bitter rant against women and marriage and bring up that old cry of. Being the 'poor' partner, I totally agree with Timmy A's comment 1. However, I'm a little younger than him and still live with my parents in the suburbs about an hour from the city.

I spend about half my week staying over at his house about 10 minutes from the cityand I've asked him many times whether he wants me to contribute to the rent - the answer is always no. So I try and make up for it in different ways - buying groceries for his house when he's busy, cooking for him, tidying his room up etc. I enjoy being with him, and because I can't yet afford to move out, it's always at his house.

He doesn't mind because he likes to see me, and I do as much as I can to do my little part. Another thing - as tight as money is sometimes, we can always spare a few dollars for a spontaneous present.

A few weeks ago I came across a book of one of his favourite sculptors, which I bought for him, and just last weekend he found a book of photos from a filmmaker he knew I'd love. Money is insignificant when you're with someone you love. Having lived overseas europe for great chunks of my adult life, women in Australia and the USA are the absolute worst for putting money ahead of everything else Women in Australia seem to have a contest going amongst women to see who can score the richest guy and ultimately screw him over This is also not something that women here seem to hide, in fact they are proud of it.

This to me says that women hold the upper hand in relationships Men here should grow bigger balls have more self esteem instead of placing their worth in their bank accounts Dear "needhelp" because you are two timing two men. And can ruthlessly dispose of either. Authentic love doesn't apply to you. So, take the child from the younger and the assets from the older.

Really why don't you condiser living off your own assets and working for your own happiness. You don't seem to have much joy to bring to either, so go for single life. In answer to Mick - they do exist. They're called suburban plaintiff lawyers.

Not sure if many of them do prenups though. You don't need to be rich to spoil your loved one. I'm a man of modest means and for my girlfriend's birthday I wanted to buy her a movie. I hired one and took it around to a mate's place, along with my VCR to copy it. I photocopied the cover too. The look on her face when I gave it to her was pure love.

Anyway, guys stop it, you are starting to whinge! Go to the 'What Men Want' blog to relieve your frustrations Miffed - there are so many whingers out there because there is a lot of inequality in the Australian legal system - I agree that there is a bit to much 'women are evil' rantings going on, but some aspects of what is being said are valid We all make mistakes choosing partners including me.

Your first mistake was to assume you would be treated as fairly as you treat others. I've made that mistake too many times, but no more. I think a good guide is: At least there is one consolation: Despite the bludging my daughter's mother does through the high amount she gets through child support, I still enjoy being a father.

Sounds like a few people need to read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" again. The house you live in is a liability. Women are attracted to a guy who can be both fun and sensitive, but also tough. The girls really fall for the split personality. Andy R, LOL, your right, we never usually agree. Perhaps im more of a realist in some areas than you originally thought. SNT, glad you thought my opinion Youtube Weather Women Pokies Water Softener re: Perhaps people should question themselves 'What IS happiness?

Is it being in a good mood? Spending quality time with family? Mate, you could have at least given her a DVD. Its not so much the cost of the gift but the lame effort behind it. You would have been better off using the money to buy some ingredients and make her dinner. At least, you put some some effort into it.

Also, perhaps, the money spent on hiring the movie could have been spent on some massage oil and you could have given her a slow, sensuous massage that could last several hours. It would have been better than the VHS tape. Branding this type of woman a "gold digger" is unfair and a common reaction from those who feel threatened. There's a difference between a woman who's prerequisite for a relationship is "how many cars do you own" who Fruit Machines Pokie Visionworks Reviews cares, catch a cab girls opposed to the ones looking for a partner who has ambitions and goals similar to their own, yet lack the years.

For the boys who have an issue with women looking for the later, maybe you need to review your own search criteria Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils start seeking like minded women. Is Sam implying that to have both is not possible? That we will have to make a choice? There are plenty of girls like Donna out there so just be careful. For every guy who has the fake ATM receipt there are two girls just waiting to spend the money. But never fear if you do things Pokies Big Winners Last Night make sure you have a lawyer with a law suit ready.

Some good and tough advices there? Not a minute that I doubted my luck and what god has given to me to love and be loved. Money talk is the ultimate up yours because most people hold money in such high regard.

It's why people look down on golddiggers. They can't afford to attract them. Why should I feel good about a woman liking me for looks, charm, personality, whatever? I had nothing do to with having those things. At least with money I've made all that on my own. Look thank you all for the tough and straight comments. Of course a marriage should be abt love!

I my self would never marry for money but one of the qualities in a man i admire the most is ambition and success a man with passion and direction is very sexy, i myself am an ambitious young passionate woman. However, my experience is that once thay start earning big dollars and there hardwork is payed off i find they tend to try and buy my love and there attitude slowly starts changing. This is when i begin to walk away-if they come back then so be it.

But i wont be bought. If those questions pose a problem for you, you should try making them easier to answer. Chicks are as superficial as the dudes checking out their bodies. These are simply elementary facts of nature and life. You ought to stop trying to fight the system and learn how to exploit it. Neuromancer, what on earth is wrong with a girl asking "- So what do you do? These are the same questions you'd ask someone you didn't know in any social setting, no matter what their gender.

It doesn't mean they'll be checking the Australian Bureau of Statistics website to find out what the average income is for your occupation or postcode. If it bothers you, think of something brilliantly creative to open a conversation with that will steer away from such topics. Yeah, right on anon. And to improve your chances further, buy some Kent products - he knows what women AND men want.

And I bet he knows Bruce Wayne and Benny. I was out on Saturday night playing "wingman" to a neurosurgeon. I'm a doctor too. The only regret was that the "moneyshot" questions were never asked. The second regret was if we told the truth we wouldn't be believed On a friday nite at a bar in sydney a few few yaers ago just as casual work wear friday was being introduced, we started chatting to sum birds and i was wearing jeans and a casual shirtmy mate was wearing a suit and tie.

My mate in the suit was unemployed as he was in town for an interview. The birds got stooged. U know what they did? It sounds like the bars you choose are the type that atract one sort of girl or maybe you yourself attract one type of girl. I went out with a guy for about 5 years who always told me that he would never be happy until he was earning a 6 figure salary, and that his career and money came first. He even used to suggest and pressure me to move jobs so I could earn more - I left a job I was perfectly happy in because he encouraged me to and was then unhappy in a job Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils the company I went to provided some excellent travel benefits which he desperately wanted to use.

What you are Of Evils Money Is All The Pokies Root could

The final straw came when we broke up - he refused to give me most of my possessions back - things like photos that had no monetary value at all, but those things that meant the world to me.

He is now earning all the money he wants and living in HongKong - I doubt he could ever say that money has bought him happiness, as far as I know he is still miserable and wants more.

  • Your own career Pokies While Sun Shines Through Your Love the Caesar was strolling through his palace and stopped
  • There shouldn't be any lack of steps you possibly can take.
  • Even the teams Real Money Pokies Bouncing Bear part the problem, think, that the marketing campaign lasted

I only earn enough to support myself and my son but I have reasonable equity in a property I have worked my guts out to keep paying the mortgage on. My boyfriend has been through a divorce which led him to the cleaners, so he has nothing.

HE is the one who is worried about melding our finances by cohabitating because he MIGHT make a lot of money one day but I would hate to tell him is really not likely to. Does the money thing seem like an excuse to you?

Maybe love is not enough anymore. Give me a guy who respects me and i am happy. I dont care if we have to sleep on a matress. Marry to be treated right, with no money I have an average income.

Mr Killer Bees has a very high income. We don't live together so we are responsible for our own financial lives. Mr KB is very generous with everything, not least of which is money. But I didn't know how much he earned when we started dating. I've never been the money hungry type. I figure I'd rather have a poor nice guy than a rich bastard.

After all, the poor guy can always earn more money, but a bastard is always a bastard. If we ever ended up living together, I would insist on paying for half of everything like we were room mates instead of lovers. I guess always being financially independant for myself has made me that way. But there are advantages to being with a man who has more money than you, because when you do join together, you get better everything because you are paying only half.

I'm lucky with Mr KB in that he's very open about everything and I doubt I would have trouble discussing financial arrangements with him. So I guess I'll jump off that bridge when I come to it. Megaman, last time I checked my balance sheet, my house was an asset and my mortgage was a liability. Seems to be a common comment Should you change yourself because others have treated you unfairly - isn't that validating someone else's bad behaviour?

I'm a single mother - I have never tried to get my grimy hands on some Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils money - ever, and I have never enforced child support, until this year when education expenses have become a little too much.

I earn enough to support myself and my daughter - I studied and worked till my income met my needs, no more, no less. Happiness is everything, and being able to be happy with yourself, and being able to treat others with respect. If anything, I get great pleasure in helping others less fortunate than me - organsing fund raising for Oxfam, or spending a day helping out at the Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils dog rescue organisation.

Lending a hand to a friend, or just listening to someon e who needs Pokies Win Nzymes Coupon be heard. Oh - and I work in IT, and I'm not fat and balding! I can also hold a conversation with more than my computer. I don't wish that girls ask what you do so as they can work out if your a big earner or not!

When i sense that happening when meeting some girls i say I am a garbo and wait for their reaction. I love the quote " if women didn't existall the money in the world would have no meaning " I guess i'm a man who likes looking after women by paying for most thingschivalry still does exist!

How are the prices in Campbelltown? Working 30 years at a job you hate to buy over priced real estate is an illusion of wealth. You are doing exactly what the government wants you to do - be a consumer with a mortgage who pays taxes.

I love it when guys ask me the money shot question I'm a professional cross dresser. Sit and watch them run He treated me like a princess and spent every cent on me - flowers, dinners, presents, etc, but for me, it was all too much If he had known me as well as he thought he had, he would have known that i would have preferred a bunch of weeds picked from the garden instead of the lavish gestures of dozens of roses.

Or a carpet picnic in his loungeroom to the dinner on Sydney harbour. After we broke up, i went out with a pennyless student. He had hardly a cent to his name, but one day surprised me at work, with a homemade sandwich. When i was growing up, my dad would tell me in jest "money cant buy you happiness, but it can buy you a better class of unhappiness" or "if you're going to be miserable, you may as well be rich".

Boys anon et ala girl isn't necessarily a gold-digger if she asks you what you do. Have you ever considered that maybe, just maybe, she's interested in learning more about you?! I'm sure there are women out there who trawl the bars of Sydney for rich doctors or pilots or whatever, but there are lots of women out there who aren't like that at all.

Guys with lots of money and good jobs can be quite arrogant about assuming that women will just fall at their feet. Some of us have money of our own and are more interested in a guy's personality, values, sense of humor, interests, life experiences etc.

Money does help free people up to enjoy their time more, but it's far from the most important thing to consider in a potential partner. It took you 6 years to work that out? How much do you think he spent treating you like a princess in 6 years You forgot that I'm extremely good looking, so yes they do. It's more than money. Women subconsciously want my genes. I find the more beautiful woman, the more attracted she is to me. Ugly ones know they don't have a shot, so they go out of their way ignoring me.

You might not marry a girl just because she's pretty, but my goodness, doesn't it help? My only excuse for it taking me 6 years to work out was that i was 17 at the start and didnt really know what love was. Oh and just so you dont think I'm a gold digger, i asked him repeatedly to stop the lavish gestures, and 4 years in we bought a house.

I had all the cash for the house. For some of you guys I really sympathize with the fact that you have to drop in the salary line in an ordinary conversation just because it may give you more luck with the ladies. I for one get turned off when a man mentions he's earning a huge salary packet, got a job in a prestigious private law firm and then expects me to 'fall for him'.

Of course its great that he's ambitious and driven in his career life but it means alot more when there's substance behind that 'huge pay packet'. The way he talks about his family and friends is a better indication of the type of man he is! For you ladies who are only interested what he has rather than who he is, I pity you. You're worth more than what any status symbol can 'create' regardless of the illusion and if the blinds are taken off your eyes, so is he.

Its so easy to fall into to the trap a materialistic life appears to offer but that's all it is. As for who should be paying on a first date?? It boils down to chivalry. We as women aren't always checkin you out to see if your cashed up. Its more like if you do pay on the first date, you can obviously sacrifice in a relationship. But in the same token, after that first date, its nice if you both just pay your own way. So I say to anyone Pokies Money Is The Root Of All Evils this that it can never be give and take.

Girls look for more in a man than besides the car he drives. Guys look at a girl's character and morals even if she is a supermodel.

Once people know you're well off the leaches, hangers on and mind trippers come outta the wood work and give you hell. Now, thats not as easy as it sounds as women have thru the ages come up with very sneaky and sly 'indirect' and 'subtle' ways to squeeze this information out of a guy. Like, what job you do, where do you live, Pokies Money Clipart No Background or rent, what car you drive, been on any holidays lately, that sort of thing.

They also have a nose that can smell a well off guy at a paces with hay fever, a chilli stuffed up one nostril and their head in a bucket of water. Frankly its a real pain going thru this charade, but that's just the lay of the land. Guys too have an innate ability to sniff out gold diggers. And many of us will mark you as such at the slightest hint of said neurosis. It doesnt matter whether you are digging for the hand of hope or panning for gold dust It is funny how defensive people are getting, I often ask people what they do, but not because I care what money they earn, just because I am interested in knowing what they are interested in and how they occupy their time.

Usually work occupies people's time a lot, and it seems a way to start off a converstaion with a person with someone you don't know well, because everyone "does" something, even if they answer that they cut their toenails every other weekend. Not everyone is sussing you out for money when they ask "what do you do", maybe you guys who get so defensive about this should consider talking about what you do that doesn't include your job - your interests, or something like that, see if it keeps someone interested.

Obviously "how much do you earn" and "is that your Mercedes parked Pokie Machines Of War 3 are more direct, but a lot of other questions are just small talk, well, at least that's the way I use them My Ex By far was a gold digger correction IS!!!

The world has become very superficial. As these posts are mostly Sydney-centric and that stands to reason, I will tell you a story that is from Canberra and the superficiality is exactly the same as people have pointed out here. One night at the pub don't they always start that way my Girlfriend was waiting for me and drinking with other friends.

At her table were two young guys who siad they were going to Goulburn on the weekend to hopefully meet nice girls. My Girlfriend was puzzled and asked them, "Why go to Goulburn, is there something wrong with Canberra girls? When I got to the pub, my Girlfriend told me of the story.

She said one of the young guys was very good looking and nice to people. We never found out how they got on in Goulburn, but it is a sad situation when people are judged for their occupation and not the quality of their character. I make over k a year, my bf makes under 20k As a female, the only way i will ever feel secure is to be financially independant.

These days being married to a rich bloke almost counts for nuts as there are things these days by name of binding financial agreements for people contemplating marriage, people in a marriage or people looking to settle financially after the dissolution of a marriage.

    Evil is the root of all money. For the love of money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy A basic question in the theory of money is "why does money exist?"

Is the love of money the “root of all evils” or only the “root of all kinds of evil” (1 Timothy )? “All evils” is the formal English equivalent of the original Greek (pantōn tōn kakōn).

    When she looks back on her four-year addiction to electronic poker machines - glorified fruit machines with big-money payouts, and known in Australia as "pokies" - Byrne finds it hard to understand why they cost her . To say that the poker machines are the root of all evil is really stretching the imagination. Last week there were headlines about "pokie profits", citing data that was exaggerated by a factor of That was because the figures highlighted were actually poker machine "turnover", not "profits". Turnover is simply the amount of money wagered. Suppose that the average recreational gambler puts $20 into a machine. Or, you could sink a few bills in the pokie machines at the local pub. All will deliver a good time, though the time frame for entertainment may differ greatly, but only one of them offers a chance at winning some or all of that money back, if not hitting a big score and walking away with even more in your wallet.

helped

The adage, don't let the facts get in the way of a good story, is alive and well among those who regularly beat up stories about the evils of poker machine gambling and the profits made by the machines' operators. The introduction of a limited number of poker machines to the hotel industry in NSW probably saved the corner pub and many small clubs from extinction.

But it was only a catch-up measure for hotels, after competition from big clubs boasting machines or more had destroyed hundreds of small businesses.

Not that it was real or fair competition. Yet some anti-gaming zealots would like to see gaming machines banned from all venues, and their campaigns start from exaggerating the profits made by operators. Last week there were headlines about "pokie profits", citing data that was exaggerated by a factor of That was because the figures highlighted were actually poker machine "turnover", not "profits".

Turnover is simply the amount of money wagered. Turnover figures are meaningless as a measure of gaming activity. In reality, the average actual gaming "profit" before tax is about a tenth of turnover.

Hotels then pay state gaming taxes and Commonwealth taxes, and other expenses, so the ultimate gross returns to operators are far less - particularly if the proceeds are used to compete with the cross-subsidies on food and drink so evident in the casino-style clubs. And while venues are required to return Those who cite turnover figures to bolster their claims about the evils of gambling are so overstating their case as to lack all credibility.

The government's plans to relax gambling laws have prompted a rash of schemes for Las Vegas-style casinos in resorts such as Blackpool. But behind this lurks the threatened arrival on our shores of pokies. They are considered by experts to be the most addictive form of gambling in the world, and they will make fruit machines look innocuous by comparison. Under the proposed legal changes, outlined last year in a government white paper, A Safe Bet For Success, Australian-style unlimited jackpot poker machines would become a major source of income for a new generation of mass-market, non-membership casinos.

It is expected that, within two years of the new measures becoming law, the number of casinos in Britain would rise from the current total of to between and 1, - with at least , poker machines installed. They will be easily accessible, have good odds, fast action, big prizes and are easy to play.

They are much more likely to get people hooked than slower forms of gambling, such as sports betting or roulette. Collins thinks pokies will appeal to four groups of people: If there is not ample regulation, there will be pokies five minutes' walk from everyone in major cities and resorts. The machines have colonised dining and live-music areas to fill almost every bar, club, hotel and casino in five of the six Australian states; only in South Australia, which has just one casino with pokies, have they failed to take hold.

Byrne had never before gambled but was quickly hooked. The flashing lights and risk-taking excited me. I just had an intense urge to feed the machine. But, gradually, I needed to spend more and more to get the buzz. Within a month, she was playing five hours a day.

Byrne, who now advises gamblers, took four years of intense counselling and a course in psychology to overcome an addiction that is far from exceptional. Australians, the world's worst problem gamblers, are obsessed with pokies. The gambling addiction unit at Sydney University says its pokie-addicted clients have included a Catholic nun, a lawyer, a policeman and the madam of a brothel, while the popularity of pokies with pensioners has triggered a whole tourist industry offering senior citizens' coach and dinner trips to big casinos.

Up until recently it was a service that Capetonians were proud of, a service bragged about as an example of what could be achieved as a solution for the masses. But that all changed. The matric results for the matric class will be available to students at their schools, in the newspapers and online, on 5 January Anything is still possible, and it doesn't take a miracle for the votes to swing any which way on voting day.

The leader that will be elected will have a tough task of ensuring that divisions within the party come to an end. All things considered I still say an NDZ win will be nothing short of a miracle. But as we all know miracles rarely happen these days. The overwhelming majority of parents are not readers. This is not to say that they cannot read, but that they do not read. Reading is a foreign activity for most parents and this does not help their children's literacy.

The New Deal would need to focus on crafting a new path after diagnosing the ills and commit all stakeholders to work together towards the most glorious future for all South Africans.

You're halfway to the next level! Money, the root of all evil 12 August , The revealer money I believe there are many things that reveal a person who really he or she is, however I would like to focus only on one of them for tonight, money money. I'm sure you have also heard people misquote this bible verse that says "the love of money is the root of all evil. If you love money more than you love people or God, definitely there's something wrong with that. Because you might end up using people to get more money, instead of using money to help people or you might comprise your relationship with God to gain more money.

Jesus asked "And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?

But on the same breath I can say I kind of understand where do they come from or what they mean when they say money is is the root of all evil.

not often scared

And most of the time that is influenced by jealousy or hunger for power or control over other people - which is not right. Does money have the power to corrupt people's hearts or bring the worst out of them or deposit what was not in them in the first place or the problem is just with people?

Going back to the first example I made about a "very nice guy" who turns into a "not very nice guy" after making a little money. So do you see my friend money does not change people but it reveals who they truly are inside.

Therefore never make a mistake and think or say "this are nice folks" just because they are poor. If you truly want to see how nice they are, wait until they have enough money in their pockets. As it been said money is not good or evil, it's just an amplifier. Click here to upload your article Click here to upload your photo Click here to upload your video.

And while venues are required to return Those who cite turnover figures to bolster their claims about the evils of gambling are so overstating their case as to lack all credibility. The same is true of those who try to apply the Productivity Commission's now-dated analysis of Australia's gaming industry to try to estimate the number and cost of each problem gambler in particular areas.

No one wishes to trivialise the social costs of problem gambling. Researchers are steadily concluding that problem gambling is a pathological condition, and warrants treatment as a health issue. However, the commission incorporated some highly questionable estimates of the downside costs of problem gambling. For example, it included as part of the net costs to society the second-order effects of impacts on families of problem gamblers.

Australians, the world's worst problem gamblers, are obsessed with pokies. The gambling addiction unit at Sydney University says its pokie-addicted clients have included a Catholic nun, a lawyer, a policeman and the madam of a brothel, while the popularity of pokies with pensioners has triggered a whole tourist industry offering senior citizens' coach and dinner trips to big casinos. Research suggests that pokies have become a tax on the poor: Two-thirds of the money spent on all gambling in Australia goes into pokie machines.

In the words of anti-pokie campaigner the Rev Tim Costello, however, it is the Australian state governments that are the biggest addicts.

The dark side of the pokie revolution was revealed to a shocked Australian public when Jie Hua Yu was found guilty of manslaughter after her month-old son, Brian, died from overheating in her locked car in a casino car while she played the pokies for two hours. The case woke Australia up to what was branded the "pokie disease". Here, unlimited-prize pokies would not be allowed outside the new form of casino.

But gambling charity GamCare has warned the government of its "real concern" at evidence of problems caused to some gamblers. Tom Kavanagh, secretary of the gaming board, the industry's existing regulatory body, says: The government presents its plans to reform the law, rooted in the Gaming Act, as in part a response to this growth of walk-in gambling. Richard Caborn, the minister responsible, says: Under the white paper proposals, unlimited-prize machines would be allowed in casinos, though these would provide "a broader and more accessible leisure experience" than existing casinos.

There would be no membership rule - at present, players have to be members and wait 24 hours for membership - but there would be a requirement to check proof of identity.

Existing prize limits would broadly continue in other settings. A bill is promised as soon as parliamentary time allows and is expected to be in the next Queen's speech, with the reforms pushed through parliament in the next session. Proponents of change believe that the dangers of pokies are being greatly exaggerated. It doesn't matter if it's a poker machine or a lottery scratchcard.

This house advantage varies for each game, and helps ensure that over time the casino won't lose money against gamblers. For people who are really good at Blackjack, the advantage for the casino might only be 0.

The slot machine odds are some of the worst, ranging from a one in 5, to a one in about 34 million chance of winning the top prize when using the maximum coin play. The house advantage obviously doesn't mean that you can't win, because people do and sometimes they win substantial amounts, but it does mean that the more you play, the more the math works against you and the better the chances are of you walking out of the casino with less money in your wallet than when you came in.

Why Gamblers Rarely Win. It's not just Vegas, but now nationwide. Casino gambling is commonly associated with prostitution, booze and other social evils. Not surprising, Mormons hold many of the job positions in Vegas casinos and associated businesses.

Mormonism is a satanic , sex-perverted , religious cult. God will not be mocked! In addition, much gambling is still illegal. Gambling in the United States is a fifty-billion dollar-a-year business. Gambling casinos are all rigged. The reason why millions of people go to immoral places is greed, hoping to get lucky and make money. Like Eve who ate the forbidden fruit, being lied to by the serpent that it was the best thing that could ever happen to her, casinos always lead to a ruined community, paradise lost and the downfall of a neighborhood.

Casinos attract the riff-raff, trash of society and perverts with money. Sadly, while greedy corporate executives and treasonous Washington D. Casinos are whore city! Sadly, a lot of African Americans are attracted to the good times in Las Vegas, gambling casinos and immoral ocean cruises. All they're doing is making greedy white people wealthier.

A bizarre fact is that Las Vegas employs thousands of Mormons! The sex-perverted Mormon religion fits in just fine in Sin City.

Most Mormons live in the more secluded western areas of the United States, especially in the Rocky Mountain range. Salt Lake City, Utah is ground zero for Mormon perversion!!!

However, the commission incorporated some highly questionable estimates of the downside costs of problem gambling. For example, it included as part of the net costs to society the second-order effects of impacts on families of problem gamblers.

No problem with that, provided the commission was consistent in recognising the equivalent second-order effects that were positive - the benefits to families of those who enjoy employment or recreation and relaxation in entertainment venues.

The commission wasn't consistent. Hence it came up with some extravagant claims on the net cost of problem gambling. More than 80 per cent of adults gamble sometime during any year, and 40 per cent gamble regularly. This means that the vast majority of Australians who gamble - on poker machines or anything else - do so for fun. That is why governments should focus on targeted harm minimisation measures helping that small portion of gamblers with a problem with gambling while minimising the impact on recreational gamblers, who are the majority.

Let's hope the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal's forthcoming analysis of machine gaming in NSW adopts a more rigorous and balanced approach than that of previous analyses.

And maybe that could consider the impact on small and medium businesses of allowing TabCorp - which already controls about 25 per cent of the poker machines in Australia - getting a foothold in this state.

It doesn't matter if it's a poker machine or a lottery scratchcard. People will find an outlet to gamble whatever the law. To say that the poker machines are the root of all evil is really stretching the imagination.

McFadden argues that the industry is overdue for reform. For example, he says, pub landlords are able to set the odds on machines so that they get more takings and the player gets a bad deal. Poker machines have anyway been available illegally in Britain for years, McFadden maintains. People have been playing them on the sly for around 15 to 20 years, and we've seen no real hardship from it.

Pokie addiction has led to hundreds of Australians committing crimes, according to a University of Sydney investigation. In the state of Victoria, the amount of crime linked to chronic gambling has exploded since pokies arrived there in the early s, researchers suggest. Each year, some gambling addicts in Victoria admit to having committed crimes to fund their habit. The research also established that a quarter of problem gamblers in counselling had confessed to crimes, most of them having been first-time criminals who had stolen from their children, friends, bosses and sporting clubs.

He gambled up to 12 hours a night on the machines. Every penny he stole went into playing the pokies.
