Comment on Street kids: No Protective Custody but Care Orders by Paul Parker.

I certainly hope “departmental spokesperson” and others put more effort into funding than providing single bedroom units affordable on Centrelink to house those 16 to 18 (and older).

My error, it should read:

Street kids: No Protective Custody but Care Orders

Concerning placing the blame “where it belongs: With the parents.”
How many of these “responsible parents” were or were not required to, then actually attended, the court?
This needs not breach privacy of these families.
We all need to better understand why these parents experience problems controlling their children.
The courts appear in position to at least get some answers.

The APY saga: Evidence suggests dysfunction
These consequences flow from ongoing governments’ racist division achieved with local support for apartheid approaches to policy.
Government’s response thus remains “government only does this to help you …”
Clearly this not true, or else far more improvements should be visible.
Consider more how the local supporters for these racist apartheid approaches provide so little improvement, leaving the APY little room to argue and negotiate.
The best path to achieving equality of opportunity, and better measurable results, is for APY to join the rest of Australia and dump these out-of-date apartheid feudal approaches.

Partition off Darwin to fix NT’s urban bias: Professor
The Commonwealth may be agreeable to divide the NT into even more separately organized kingdoms as suggested by Professor Gerritsen.
His proposal to partition Darwin off from the rest of the Northern Territory suits longer term partitioning of the NT into various separate fiefdoms, per Commonwealth’s Aboriginal Land Rights (NT).
I doubt the NT achieving better fiscal equity is a priority to those involved.
It appears more like ownership and control without accountability and responsibility.
The Commonwealth is still working to partition NT into separate, self-governing, legal kingdoms, all done in accordance with various Commonwealth racist apartheid legislation guidelines.
Elsewhere Amos Aikman recently wrote of lease difficulties to do with the case before Justice Stephen Southwood involving the Commonwealth’s ALR(NT) racially segregated and partitioned community at Santa Theresa, concerning issues around housing, rentals, repairs and leases – or lack of them, affecting tenants living there.
This appears a repeat of Amoonguna housing issues covered earlier by the Alice Springs News, neither appear resolved.
[Q: Did Commonwealth quietly provided required funds to repair the private corporate land-owner’s houses?]
I admit wondering why they are suing the NT government, when the pot of gold for these is in Canberra, while in this case NT appears to act on behalf of, on instructions from, the Commonwealth, within limitations of Commonwealth’s racial segregationist policies set out in the ALR(NT), or flowing from same, makes this case more complicated than most property / tenancy cases.


Surprising conservative on council: Jacinta Price
Racial tags remain racist tools.
Racists aim to shift debates, use racial tags to move focus so racial membership becomes the issue.
The 1967 Referendum campaign and the overwhelming result was to stop, to eliminate, government use of racial tags as legislative filters to eliminate, or to qualify, our shared legal rights and legal responsibilities as Australians.
Almost every use of racial tags supports racists’ cause.

Why do Aboriginal / Indigenous Corporate bodies require greater standards of accountability than other corporate entities ?
IMHO the Commonwealths Aboriginal / Indigenous entities exist to protect positions, reputations, and control, of Ministers and governments not purported beneficiaries.
Racism includes application of different standards to businesses where directors, shareholders, or beneficiaries, are qualified by racial identification.
Government financial assistance, even contracting, benefits many businesses under the Corporations Act.
While the majority of businesses in Australia are small, they make up around 97% of all businesses, with around 60% businesses failing in first three years.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics report into corporate insolvencies for 2011-2012 found 44% of businesses suffered poor strategic management, 40% inadequate cash flow or high cash use, and 33% suffered from trading losses.
Directors and employees, from smallest to largest corporations, subject to judicial accountability for corporate negligence.
Many successful in business advise trying to understand why they were failing, or they failed, is what enabled them to succeed later.
The need is to encourage those in business to seek and obtain advice from others sooner without racist measuring.


Review, don’t celebrate Pine Gap: Alice peace group
Re: Hal Duell Posted July 30, 2017 at 6:40 am.
“For the last several years I have found the international news a riveting display of diplomacy and duplicity.”
Perhaps this should read read: For the last several years I have found the international news a riveting display of diplomacy, duplicity and stupidity for when facts are just ignored?
Jonathan Pilbrow presents an argument for NT group of the Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN).
Whether facts are accepted or not is up to us readers.
Sometimes presented facts are not the issue.
Often the issues are not yes/no ones, but probabilities that need to be expressed in percentages, whether on balance consequences from the decision are reasonable.
Is participation in the Joint Defence Facility Pine Gap reasonable to compensate for risks?
Do risks to Alice Springs outweigh benefits to the wider Australia ?
Such decisions are complicated enough, partly due Australia’s reluctance towards information being easier to access, compared to elsewhere, for example the USA.
Freely distributed information on the internet is changing this.
Consider also how presenters, media and political, still may include or exclude facts deemed inconvenient. Most presenters publish facts relevant to their proposition’s topic or issue, excluding facts deemed not relevant.
Reince Priebus, former White House communications chief, appeared reject inconvenient facts and ignoring challenges by media reporters.
Priebus adhered to the Goebbels’ principle, regarding truth as a great enemy. Such lies can only be maintained for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
When facts are inconvenient, we need to challenge them to learn.
The real challenge is our accepting the need to keep learning is something many avoid like infectious plagues.
