Comment on On youth prisons: grandmothers, reformers, revolutionaries by James T Smerk.

I commend these women on speaking out. However I don’t think their plan would work, don’t get me wrong I would love it if it could work! Why can’t we build a purpose-built location (on country), not prison, more boarding house for kids to learn and develop skill with elders talking and teaching.

I would like to see more training/coaching for parents or soon to be parents on their responsibilities and help getting them permanent housing to bring up their families in a stable way.

It’s a fact that if you turn your back on modern society’s ways and language you are essentially turning your back on prospering and your generations’ chances to come also.

I also believe you should have to be Aboriginal or part to sell any Aboriginal art works in Australia, it’s their art and should be their profits.

I could go on forever but that’ll do…

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
Why not wack a big Aboriginal Flag on another hill or even a huge one on the Mountain. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, we are all one. There were many nationalities that fought under our flag and this monument celebrates them all!
Adding more flags will just encourage the divide to grow, we need to come together as one.


Bottle shop cops may not like it, but are needed
Dear Australian Hotels Association,
You seem to be of the belief your members are paying something out of their responsibilities as a business.
They pay what they have to in taxes! Don’t try and pass it off as an extra on top of what they are required to pay.
Best not to compare yourself to healthcare either as they help deal with the issues, while alcohol shops cause more trouble than good.
They should be supplying their own security and calling the cops if something happens.
