To all who are demanding equal rights I ask why …

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?


Alice’s upbeat YES campaign for marriage equality
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.”

Council to introduce kerbside recycling
Excellent, but why do we have to be charged for it? What if we do not want it? Quote: “Diverting recyclables from the waste stream will extend the lifespan of our landfill site, saving Council and the community costs in the long term.”
Are we paying for our own savings? Who is really the beneficiary of the scheme?


Town still upset with Stuart statue, say researchers
Dr Lovell said that early this year more than 20 artists, writers, and educators from different cultural backgrounds were invited to respond artistically to the 4m high statue, which has been situated in a public park in Alice Springs for the past four years.
May I ask if those artists looked at the statue with the 21st century eye or from one of 1870s era?
The gun? Not so long ago any one working in the outback carried one in his/her vehicle.
@ Fred the Philistine: What environmentalists have to do with the statue? I am what you call a “tree huger” and I like Stuart’s statue.

Peter, Darren is correct, there will be more jobs and work for people in health care, in counselling and for the undertakers.


Council not keen on offer of help to fight crime
I for one will say, bring the parents to shame and make them face reality in accord with their culture. Traditional Aboriginal cultural values ensure that Aboriginal children are provided with the freedom to explore the world and to learn their responsibilities to care for and protect one other.
While the children are encouraged to explore the world around them, issues of safety are always considered:
They are encouraged to explore, within a safe distance, with safe practices put into place. There are shared values of the local community and other family members to allow the children to learn from their own experiences.
If a child is exposed to any kind of risk, families trust that it will be reported back to them: If someone has abandoned their caring responsibilities, for whatever reason, someone from the local community will inevitably raise the issue.
Roaming the streets and the hills are unsafe, far away from home, and the older teens do not care for the little ones.
So in my humble opinion we should give parental / communities the right to judge and to act.
Give the traditional owners a go, as maybe before meetings, activities etc.
We acknowledge them? In fact we do not, and it is only when we show them some real respect that their children will respect us.


Cops with assault rifles footage six years old
Where will the patrols be? In town? CBD? The hills? The gangs will then shift to other suburbs very quickly and the patrols will not be able to be everywhere. Make the parents responsible!
