Comment on Thanks for more ‘us and them’, Ms Macklin and Mr Snowdon by Janet Brown.

I state that I have strong Christian principles and suddenly I am not allowed an opinion based on facts or principle. I believe in the earth as a gift to mankind without which we would not exist. Over time we have fought for land and then we sorted it out with titles that we paid for or where given. And today we pay for the right to call our home ours. If we fall into hard times the bank then takes it and sells it and we are dispossessed. I am not a fan of giving away something that belongs to the Commonwealth (the people of Australia). National parks are there for the people to enjoy and to cherish. I am not a fan of segregation and apartheid but we have governments at all levels actively promoting this. I 100% believe that if all Australians were treated equally under law and policy that all Australians would achieve to their best. Whatever level that may be. Paternalism is the most insidious form of racism and division on the planet.

Thanks for more ‘us and them’, Ms Macklin and Mr Snowdon
So the question is, is the land given to traditional owners? Or to to the land council under a false and deliberate lie! Shame on the Federal government for its deceit. To give control to the Central Land Council in Alice, the same council who refuse to fly the Australian flag. And this government represents Australians. Wake up Australians. The working class is being bled dry by a socialist government intent on one thing, initiating one thing: Apartheid.


Thanks for more ‘us and them’, Ms Macklin and Mr Snowdon
Celebrate what Matt. I am ashamed of a government that supports segregation. I am ashamed of a government that has no respect for the citizens of the country and actively pushes racism. Equality under law equality in policy. That would be something to celebrate. Good article, Erwin.

Surprising conservative on council: Jacinta Price
The issue of the feminist voice is that it groups together to attack any woman who dares to stand alone and not join their pack of the pathetic victimhood clan. Those who are prepared to throw men under the bus to obtain superiority. At the same time they take the same approach to any woman who defies their rules. Stand strong Jacinta. Victim cards cannot be found in your purse.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
The elitist are always so far from empathy it is amazing that they can bring themselves to notice the people suffering or find $1 for the organisations helping the poor. Hey True But?
Your remarks are display a complete lack of empathy for anyone struggling with power prices. Your comments also display a “I am okay, not worried about anyone else” tone.
I do worry about elderly paying so much on power that they cannot afford eat.
I do worry about the families who are paying so much for power that food is now a luxury more than a necessity for survival.
Our governments have forced this on the people of Australia by their inability to risk manage solar implementations. What a sad world we live in when the life of ours is so easily dismissed for the belief in a ideology based on propaganda. And greed.


Ballooning electricity costs: NT could make a difference
Rising electricity costs are being ignored by government. Why? Let’s go back.
Before solar. In a clear way let’s say it costs $10m a year to run the power station. Then comes solar. More and more business and households get solar. Then over a few years those with solar are paying either nothing or getting a payment from PAWA.
The facts are the power station still requires $10m to operate.
So for example those with solar have removed $7m from payments to the power company.
That requires those without solar to pay the $10m.
Simple maths based on logic and fact.
Governments are hiding their heads in the sand as they know what they have done.
Blaming the power companies and accusing them of price gauging is a lie.
This is purely the lack of risk management of renewable energy establishment.
I raised my concerns when solar first was starting up only to be called an idiot by the then CEO of PAWA.
The NT Government should be paying the difference for their stuff up. So should every government and mostly the Feds.
There is no mystery about this. It is not a conspiracy. It is purely a lack of risk management failure by government.


No quorum to debate Cr Melky’s youth curfew motion
We require (and have done so for many years) a youth hub that allows for kids to relax and interact that provides food safety and a bed.
When are the powers to be, going to acknowledge this one ingredient always missing from the spending?
Kids need a safe place to sleep. A safe place to relax and feel normal. The very basic needs base as preached in the community services field known as the maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
Boot camps are not the answer. Detention centres are not the answer. And yet no one has asked the right question.
How do we implement positive changes for these kids?
We do that by providing a bed, shelter and food. The basic to human needs. A place that offers opportunities and support.
Education and access to tutoring. Dealing with the behaviour issues is another thing altogether. When this basic need is addressed those with real behaviour issues will be visual and that requires some assistance from those with the skills.


Vinnies in Alice barely surviving
I managed the Red Cross shop in reg Harris lane.
The area manager would turn up, bully the volunteers and attempt to bully me. Which did not go well for her.
She demanded I make sure the volunteers signed contracts for work times. I told her that the volunteers would do what the could. They loved working for the Red Cross.
I put a complaint in to head office re the area manager and she went on stress leave after all the other stores were contacted and all relayed the same story of bullying and threats by this persons.
This same person was abused by customers for her rudeness to them.
After I quit the new manager was promised full time and after 12 months still no permanent position.
Was forced to work 40 hours plus and paid for 30 hours part time rate.
It appears that these not for profit organisations are fronts for people who have achieved middle management positions who have no compassion or empathy.
And have no issue pushing bullying.
