Comment on Have Minister, Tourism Central Australia acted on tragedy? by Evelyne Roullet.

I agree with you Matt, especially having worked in the tourism industry. I can say that I have heard everything when giving advises some: I am on holidays, I do what I like! I am old enough to know what to do! I never wear a hat and I am not going to start to please you! Are we in a police state that you are asking me what time I will be home?! Do you think I need so much water? You want me to wet my pants?
“The Australian Outback can seem so remote and isolated and planning your self-drive adventure requires a lot of preparation.”
This is nearly on all traveling websites.
Advice from the site of the Alice Springs Tourism Center:
1.Bushwalking
Check the length and difficulty and if walking without a guide, tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Wear protective footwear, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent, carry a map and plenty of water. When walking read maps and signs, stay on the track, behind safety barriers and away from cliff edges.
2.Dehydration and Sun Protection
Dehydration is a common condition suffered so increase your daily fluid intake to approximately one litre of water per hour. Many parks and reserves do not have a supply of drinking water so always carry water with you.
The sun in the Red Centre is strong, always wear a shirt, hat, sunglasses, and a minimum SPF 30+ sunscreen lotion.
Apply sunscreen regularly, even if cloudy, and stay out of the sun during the middle of the day when the sun is strongest.
What more do we need? We talking about adults who should know how to organise a trip in a foreign land.

Sue, I have respect for homosexuals who come in the open (I have some in my family and a lot of friends).
But we talking only of equality for heterosexuality and homosexuality. In this case why ignoring bisexuality?
To be a heterosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the opposite sex.
To be a homosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the same sex
To be a bisexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction to both adult males and females, equally attracted to both sexes.

To my knowledge, all Australian Federal and State Parliaments and Legislative Assemblies open in prayer – with most using the Lord’s Prayer Ergo Australia is a Christian country.
If the law of marriage is to be changed so the Australian Constitution
Australia’s legal system and institutions, while being secular in nature, also draw heavily on Christian ethics and morality, best illustrated by the 10 commandments and the fact that, for years, it was customary for those involved in trials to swear on the Bible.
The constitution and other laws and policies protect religious freedom and, in practice, the government generally enforced these protections.
However the major religions of Australia : Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Taoism condemned homosexuality
I think our politicians should first change Constitution and subsequent laws instead of wasting tax payer’s money on a referendum.
We have the Yes and the No who are disturbing our peace. We should may be taking model on the The 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which is considered by legal authorities to have equal legal standing with the Constitution of France, which states: “No one may be questioned about his opinions, [and the] same [for] religious [opinions], provided that their manifestation does not trouble the public order established by the law.”

Bruce: The argument that “every other western country has embraced SSM so jump on board” is similar to the argument teenagers use on their parents. However a good parent will answer: You are not everybody else.
