Some peo­ple are poor be­cause pas­tors ripped them off, not just so­ci­ety. And many wouldn’t even have churches if they didn’t bribe the peo­ple with food to fill pews. — Jane

Re: Ashy Bines. It’s sur­pris­ing how many peo­ple don’t know that you can­not park on yel­low lines or do U-turns at traf­fic lights!

I fail to see how a CEO can be paid $25m for one year of work. The av­er­age per­son may not be able to achieve this in two life­times. How sad with so many un­able to find food let alone em­ploy­ment! OCKY get no dole here, no pen­sion here, no vote. Hello. You’re not cit­i­zens. By your own de­sign. Tassie could be its own coun­try too. But they’re smarter than that. Blue

Take guns away from po­lice. They have no right to com­mit mur­der. UK cops have whis­tles, ba­tons and tasers. Very ef­fec­tive. Only spe­cial squads should have lethal weaponry. Dave

I sup­pose the next step for par­ents who don’t get kids taught swim­ming will be to take away their ben­e­fits?

To anony­mous (GCB 15/9), I’m not up­set with any­one. Sim­ply, hetero­sex­ual cou­ples get mar­ried and then sadly find that one is in­fer­tile. Same sex cou­ples know that they can’t re­pro­duce be­fore unit­ing. That’s the dif­fer­ence. John Z

Any­one would think Ashy Bines is the only per­son that has used a dis­abled park­ing bay il­le­gally. I know so-called dis­abled peo­ple who use those bays and then spend 2 to 3 hours walk­ing from one end of a shop­ping cen­tre to the other. Bar­ney

Johnathan Gre­gor, you’re en­tirely right about the GCCC & its de­struc­tion & de­vel­op­ment of the Gold Coast. Johnathan Gre­gor for our next Mayor! U have my vote. J

For the record there were pools on the rocks at Burleigh Heads and Snap­per Rocks in the past but they were re­moved as they were not fenced and there­fore be­came a public li­a­bil­ity.

Can some­one tell me why on the fi­nan­cial re­ports on TV we get our value with NZ, US, GB, etc. But not with our big­gest trad­ing part­ner China with the yuan? WHATA

Karen, I see you have not been in­volved with any Surf Club as all life­savers are vol­un­teers and spend a lot of time on pa­trols and when they have a break some­one else takes over from them, so give them a break. X Life­saver Benowa

How, as a coun­try, are we spose to em­brace other cul­tures when we can’t ac­cept our fel­low Aussies’ life­style choices? Silly peo­ple like Mr MF who doesn’t care but will vote no be­cause he can. He ob­vi­ously hasn’t seen the vote no ads, they don’t even make sense. Hero gp.

Ma­ree, you need a dose of com­pas­sion. Vot­ing no to spite Mr Turn­bull is a waste. Why not vote yes and feel good about bring­ing some hap­pi­ness to some peo­ple who would like to marry?

Par­ents who let their kids ride bikes with no hel­mets are putting their kids’ lives at risk of se­ri­ous head in­jury, or worse! Preven­tion is much bet­ter than cure.

All you peo­ple moan­ing about politi­cians – re­mem­ber who voted them in and next elec­tion you will vote them back in again. Dumb, dumb, dumb. we are ... Ron
