Comment on Will we better understand the ‘Recognise’ referendum than we did the 1967 one? by Paul Parker.

In 1967 Harold Hold PM stated “… the Government has been influenced by the popular impression that the words now proposed to be omitted from section 51 (xxvi) are discriminatory – a view which the Government believes to be erroneous but which, nevertheless, seems to be deep rooted.”
Australians correctly held deep rooted distrust of s.51(xxvi) as the Commonwealth and States regularly passed laws and regulations which denied basic rights and responsibilities of Australian’s to Australians by abusively applying the label “Aborigine” or “Aboriginal”.
Commonwealth then was, and continues today, to qualify our rights and responsibilities as Australians abusively using racial identification.
The overwhelming vote for the 1967 referendum clearly demonstrated Australian people’s desire to outlaw ALL racial discrimination between Australians.
Just as clearly, Commonwealth obstructs, suggesting the 1967 vote was not clear enough.
Essential then is a clearer constitutional amendment to prevent legislation which discriminates between Australians using grounds of race.
Evidence is clear the Commonwealth still legislates and supports racism and apartheid, even segregation of Australian families, while obstructing those who challenge their racist apartheid activities.

Salt is a corrosive, spread of such corrosion is found with increased salt in the air, as those living closer to salt water soon learn.
We need greater public understanding of effects of salt, how its effects can be multiplied by inappropriate metals or flooding.
We need clearer explanations of the procedures to reduce, and resolve possible corrosion issues over several thousand years.
Even several years appears too long for many politicians to consider.

Will the Gunner government persuade the Commonwealth to ensure the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) land trusts pay the “Land Tax on Territorians”?
Will the Gunner government persuade the Commonwealth to ensure the ALR(NT) land trusts pay other conventional NT and Local government charges like rates?
The ALR(NT) corporate land trusts remain significantly financially advantaged over other land-owners given the Commonwealth’s exemptions freeing them from conventional land-owner responsibilities.
Equality of opportunity and responsibility requires treating the ALR(NT) corporate Land Trusts same as other corporate or natural land-owners in the NT.

Call for public to monitor police at bottle shops
I do not support uniformed police being stationed at take-away alcohol outlets.
It is the responsibility of licensees within their premises to ensure compliance with requirements as set out in the legislation.
If licensees find it difficult to provide adequate security during certain times they need be temporarily closed during those times.
I support police attending to charge individuals and those licensees who breach banning provisions.

Such logic supports amputating a leg because a toe is sore.
Most persons on Centrelink do manage themselves on their limited budgets, albeit with difficulty.
Restricting their capability is unlikely to improve things.
The problem remains government focus on racist tag games.
Without racial filters everyone can concentrate on actual problems, not grossly over-rated racist symptoms.
