Comment on Will we say sorry to the Abandoned Generation in 10 years? by Surprised!.

Until the parents take responsibility and or are held accountable for their children’s actions, things will only get worse.
Until society accepts that a unified approach to addressing the issues is accepted, things will only get worse.
Until we stop blaming our childhood for our adult actions, things will only get worse.
Until we show respect for each other, things will only get worse.
Until we cease revisiting the Stolen Generation (when it suits us) and accept that it happened, was managed abhorrently, people were treated cruelly, it should never have happened that way, but until we move on, things will only get worse.
On the Stolen Generation, people never seem to mention the thousands of children from the UK, supposedly orphans (many weren’t) forced to come to Australia in the 50s to 70s, so it was not only the Aboriginal children that were the Stolen Generation.
What many seem to ignore or accept, is that the fact that this happened, has in many cases provided opportunities that these people may never have had and many have attained great things because of this.
Before some readers arc up at this comment: No, the ends doesn’t justify the means.
We as a society have made some horrible mistakes and inflicted lots of suffering to our fellow man and to our world.
This downfall of society and the moral values such as respect, honesty, integrity and many other things is only exacerbated by our politicians’ weak leadership, their convenient morals and our own apathy as a whole.
We all need to move on, stop revisiting the past and build a better world for us all.
Let us start by adopting a unified approach to deal with the real issues, learn from our mistakes and use this knowledge for the benefit of our society.

Steve Brown: You raise some excellent points Steve, however you seem to be overlooking one very important fact.
If the government wanted to consult the masses, they should have taken the opinions more seriously.
The fact that they didn’t, is disrespectful to the taxpayer. So, was it just lip service?
I think you’ll find that this may be what has pissed people off.


Fewer pokies, help for gambling addicts
Yep. Reduce the number of cars and there will be fewer car crashes too.
We have a habit of trying to solve issues from the effects rather than the causes, and we continue to go round in circles and spend millions in the process.
Gambling is a way of life, good or bad.
It’s been around forever and will be around forever.
For those who haven’t heard of Broard Arrow near Kalgoorlie, it was an out of the way to play two up and not be caught by the law. It’s now a bit of a tourist attraction.
People will find a way and place to gamble even if all the pokies are removed.
Surely education and treatment are the keys!


The millions and the misery
Couldn’t have expressed it better, Jones. If the taxpayers see more than anecdotal results for their hard earned money, they will be more inclined to be positive about their money being spent on organisations like Congress.
Where there is political spin, the taxpayer becomes cynical.
I am still bewildered as to how the hell can they (Congress) can have a $20m underspend?


Cops nab alleged grog runners
It’s not about the amount of money or quantity, it’s about the amount of damage to people’s lives, both primary and secondary that this disgusting conduct results in.
I say throw the book at them and jail time. Forget about a penalty of picking up empties as that may encourage “customers”.
