    OK I am in Australia where unemployment benefits do not expire ever. Just needed to clarify that point BUT
     This guy has been on benefits for over 2 years, he doesn't seem to be able to find work for whatever reason, he's 55 and it does get tougher for older folks here. The thing is, he supports the Australian conservative party, and listens to our version of Rush Limbaugh, a creep called Alan Jones, an example of Jones work, after Boston bombings he blamed radical leftwing students and tried to bash our government about foreign students here ( A complete ass ).
     OK I better land this plane and tie it in to the topic at hand. I tried to explain to my housemate that if his beloved conservatives and Alan Jones had their way, he would be living in a shelter and lining up for hand outs. i believe he heard me.
     My point being, hard line conservatives can suddenly become very Liberal when they are directly affected.
