what about me

Paul from Pukete

"What about me" 

Do we remember that song from the 1980S 

its opening lyrics start with 

Well, there's a little boy waiting 
At the counter of the corner shop

What about me? It isn't fair
I've had enough, now I want my share
Can't you see, I wanna live
But you just take more than you give

What about me?
What about me?
What about me?

Other parts advise 

Take a step back and see the little people
They might be young
But they're the ones that make the big people big
So listen as they whisper:
"What about me?"

And now I'm standing on the corner
All the world's gone home
Nobody's changed, nobody's been saved
And I'm feeling cold and alone
I guess I'm lucky, I smile a lot
But sometimes I wish for more, than I've got

What about me? It isn't fair
I've had enough, now I want my share
Can't you see, I wanna live
But you just take more, you just take more
You just take more than you give

It resonates with the current covid climate with business wanting a hand out because they feel they too big to fail , the very same ones that have been routing their tax bills for years the self indulgent and self entitled wanting exemptions cause they are special 

and us commoners cast asunder   "Take a step back and see the little people" our children isn't that the most important thing

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora neighbours, With Covid-19 daily cases in Auckland forecast to double, police won't say whether boundary controls have tightened since rural locals reported higher volumes of traffic on cross-boundary back roads. Read the story below:

damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Paul from Pukete

I have sat back and watched everyone rant about yesterday's NZ Government announcement regarding mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for all adults working in the education section, early childhood education sector and healthcare and can't believe the language some are using and the abuse being levelled.
The Government has not taken your rights away to decide if you are vaccinated or not. You still have that CHOICE. What they have done is say if you work in these JOBS (education, early childhood centres, the health sector) you need to be vaccinated as you are working with a group of people in NZ who due to their age are not able to have the vaccination or are vulnerable due to ill health or old age.
They are trying to protect our children and elderly and the vulnerable.

If you don't want to have the vaccinations great that is your CHOICE. You aren't going to jail for it. You have the freedom to make that CHOICE What is affected is your ability to work in your CHOOSEN job. So CHOOSE not to have a vaccination and look for a job in another industry. It is your CHOICE.

We teach our children that CHOICES and ACTIONS have consequences but as soon as something like this happens I have been shocked at the number of adults throwing temper tantrums about “it’s not fair”.

I am not sure why everyone feels the need to abuse the government on Facebook when all they are trying to do is protect the majority of NZ.

Would you rather they sat back open the borders completely, remove all restrictions and watch NZers get sick and you not be able to access medical services for any illness apart from Covid because the hospitals and doctors are overrun.

The Government is damned if they do and damned if they don't.

The opposition are in favour of opening the country up and removing all restrictions. I respect your choice not to get the vaccine, I don't respect your choice to be on Facebook and throw abuse at a group of people trying to do their best in a situation we have not had to face previously.
