Comment on Alice’s upbeat YES campaign for marriage equality by Evelyne Roullet.

To all who are demanding equal rights I ask why an Australian women earn 23% less than men, according to workplace equality scorecard? This is out of context? Maybe not.
As we ask same rights for sexual life, we should demand same rights for working life.

PS: I would like to ask why two married homosexuals should earn more than two married lesbians if they doing the same work?

I do not think that the “No”voices are only for religious groups. I believe they keep quiet not to be picked on by the “Yes” bullies who assume that everybody must agree with them: “Shame on you, you are not for equality”. Businesses advertised their support for Yes, should the No boycott them?

Same sex marriage for true love sure but why not for bigamy? One can truly love more than one person. I voted No, not because of the same sex, but because I am against marriage all together. In my eyes unless it is for religious beliefs marriage is an outmoded institution. De Facto is the way.

What is a de facto relationship?

“A de facto relationship is defined in Section 4AA of the Family Law Act 1975. The law requires that you and your former partner, who may be of the same or opposite sex, had a relationship as a couple living together on a genuine domestic basis.”

Anzac Oval: hand it over, says NT Government
Anzac oval does not belong to the council, but to the ratepayers.
The council is only the representative of the residents, and have to bow to the wishes of the community.
The threat of compulsory acquisition of the land is a sign of weakness: “I will win at all costs rather that admit I was wrong.”
If the ratepayers are the landholders of the oval, we have the right to object on the grounds that we feel the proposal is better located elsewhere and that proper process has not been followed.
What a waste of time, energy, money. I believe this government, which tries to be in charge, could not run a business. It will be quite bankrupt.

@ Russel Guy: The extra money does not go to help alcoholics, but put more in the coffers of bottle shops. [ED – The bottle shops, according to a spokesman for the Attorney General. Cheers, Erwin Chlanda, Editor.]
It was the same for down sizing the casks form four litres to two litres, because 2l + 2l may be = 4l but they are more expensive.
@ Local1: Ourcellar had no membership, I talked with them and was told to do my order by phone and I will receive my wine. I did it and am waiting. Paul (the agent) told me he was not aware of “mail-order suppliers are now required by the NT Government to obtain a permit and to adhere to the new floor price”.
OurCellar delivers to all parts of Australia except the following restricted dry zone postcodes: 4605, 4713, 4816, 4825, 4830, 4871, 4874, 4876, 4895.
I suppose my delivery will come from Darwin. Wait and see.

Dominico, I agree with your teacher: “Criticism is easy, and art is difficult.”
It is a philosophy I had adopted and used in my family and work life: Do not come to me with a complaint unless you come with a remedy.
The government has ideas based on collective responsibility, by which individuals who are part of such collectives to be responsible for other people’s actions which leads to collective punishment.
For me the notion of collective culpability seems to deny individual moral responsibility and free choices.
If adults want to kill themselves with alcohol and other drugs I will respect their wish. Why spending energy and money to save people who do not want to be saved?
Money, time and energy should be spend protecting innocents and not punish them.
My solution: Instead of dry areas and rehabilitation centers built a camp for addicts, where home deliveries will satisfy their needs until they run out of money, drop dead or want to change their ways.
Security should keep them in, and prevent visitors. I can hear the uproar, but no, I am not a Nazi, but like Evelyn Beatrice Hall wrote, I will say to them: “I disapprove of your lifestyle, but I will defend to the death your right to live it.”

No more cheap wine for cooking, therefore bye bye to a lot of good recipes!
Why the early harvest wine is not exempt from the mandated price of $1.30 per standard drink as it has less alcohol?
Can we still buy Christmas gourmet wine hamper online? Would online shops will have to advertise two prices: one for Australia, one for NT? This will not be good advertising for NT.
Oversea Amazon online has abandoned us because of the Australian demands: I cannot any longer buy French books, DVD music as there is no supplier in Australia.
Australia the land of the free? This is a joke.

The port yellow label disappeared of the shelves. This was supposed to fix the drinking problems.
Flagons followed. More drinking problems.
Intervention followed with the basic card: More drinking problems.
Restrictions and regulations with supply hours: More drinking problems.
Not so long ago, Aborigines could not drink alcohol. Soon nobody will be able to do so.
I have a question: If Alice is a restricted area could interstate travelers can have their vehicles taken by the police if they carry alcohol?
Would signs be erected on the Stuart highway to give warning?
