Comment on Where to now for council and Stuart statue? by Janet Brown.

You need to re-read your first comment and your rant re comparing our soldiers slaughtered in war.
And then you say that Australians are saying, hey, get over it, all we did was steal your land, kill your people, took your children, raped your women, that’s alright isn’t it.
Hey, if we didn’t do it someone else might have. You should feel happy that it was us nice people that completely trashed your lives and committed all these atrocities against your relatives.
And you then go to say people need to be able to feel safe about expressing their viewpoint and be able to discuss it in a calm, respectful and honest manner. What planet are you on?
There was nothing calm and respectful and honest in your verbal abuse and vicious attack on decent people.
Racism is alive and well with people like you in our midst.
I find it amazing that persons like yourself hide behind funny names, too scared to put your real identity out there in fear of public humiliation.

Where to now for council and Stuart statue?
@ Penangke: It was you who entered into this discussion with abuse and anger, it was you who responded in a disrespectful manner, it is you who should be feeling shamed and guilty.
I do not actually identify with the argument as it is based on racism and racism is a disease and as it spreads hate and anger grow. There is a difference between racism and people feeling disempowered or government policy that incites division.
You say: “I think particularly landowners fit this scenario. I’ve seen the no trespassing signs.
“I expect they are prepared to back those signs up with whatever means are at their disposal. And your following comment about land owners: “Should someone come along with more firepower, and force them off that piece of country, I know that they would feel pretty much the same as the old people did when this happened to them.
“Their children would probably carry that pain and anger too. So really we are all on the same page, we all bleed red.”
Our land owners purchased their lands through working and with money. land that was available to purchase. You compare today with history. There is no comparison. We fly planes they walked. Again, what is it that you want us all to understand about your lack of empathy for the world today?
If you want to live in the past, sorry, that can never happen. You are a product of today. Do you want to force us to confront history? Again, we cannot.
Why? None of us were alive back then. You want us to accept responsibility for our ancestors. Sorry, we accept responsibility for our own actions not those of others. We may not approve of history but I am sorry, we cannot change it.
And it does not define who we are. Today we are a changing population with changing values and change will continue to happen.
If you want to feel angry and violent because of the past that is your right. What you do not have the right to do is blame everyone else because you are stuck in the past.
And if you really want to do something, do something about those kicked out of their homes in communities by others of the community, in other words, clean up your own back yard before you look over the fence and see that you are your own worst enemy. Nearly all of us have moved on, making a future for our families and friends. Looking back can only stop you moving forward to a brighter tomorrow.

Bobby, if you say I take the high moral ground that is because apologist like yourself are very happy to keep people downtrodden. Racism is when you divide based on race. I on the other hand, on my high moral ground, believe people are equal.
It is their choice as to where they are comfortable. Free will.
I do not participate in the apologetic racist fraternity. I believe if you expect everyone else to do things for you, you will never want to do anything for yourself.
Teach a man to fish and he will feed himself and his family for a life time. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.

@ Penangke. All I read was blah blah blah. Racism drips from from your fingers as you type. The statue is about our history. Democracy has us recognised as individuals sharing this land. Each has his right to free speech.

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.
