Comment on The Greens Senator and that four-letter-word: Work. by Evelyne Roullet.

After reading this interview my thoughts were: “Thank God I am out of the political arena.”
Quote: “There are a myriad issues around alcohol and drug abuse. I disagree with the way the government addresses these issues. They kowtow in the NT to the hotel industry. They chop and change programs. I’m not pretending it’s easy but the current approach, doing more of the same, is not going to work.” End of quote.
It is election time, a good time to tell the voters what a party would love to do on those issues.
To acknowledge problems and stating disagreement is telling what the majority of us are thinking, and next Saturday we will vote hoping to get results no empty comments.

‘Lost’ man survived on bushfood banquet
Was he really lost? Or was it a demonstration of Aboriginal superiority in skill and knowledge of this land?
No supermarket, no Google, no GPS etc. How many Australians know what is a soakage? And especially make one?
Soakages were once a dependable and important water source for Australian Aboriginal people and although many are dried or contaminated now, they can still be found across the deserts.
Those skills should be taught in all our schools as survival is more important than money.
In case of national disaster, I put my life in Aboriginal hands rather that in our governments’.


Drowning in bad news stories? Try this.
Congratulations.


Missing man found safe and well after 17 days
Police said they will interview Morton once he has recovered to learn more about his 17-day disappearance, including how he was able to survive in the extreme conditions. ???
The same way that Aborigines used to survived in Australia before the white settlers came.


The stolen child who went to university
@ David, Posted February 11, 2019 at 11:00 pm: “We need to get some things straight here.
If policemen, holy men of the cloth, miners, pastoralist, vagabonds of the day, had kept their trousers buttoned up and not pursued Aboriginal women, there would not be a stolen generation, that is, children sired by non Aboriginal men as those described.”
Your comment underlines the fact that those children were part of two communities: Aboriginal and European.
I am in total agreement with you, it was a disgrace that those children were stolen from their mother; but in this period of history women of any skin colour did not have many rights.
