Comment on Art gallery: Govt keeps major Alice lobbies in the dark by Janet Brown.

I am a very strong supporter of the gallery at Anzac. An enhanced open area and an massive amphitheatre for events is what we need. Keeping events in town and displaying our unique qualities.
The Todd River is our mark to the world and it is hidden away.
This investment will be alongside the Todd River.
It is time the people of this town can interact with tourist.
For too long tourist have been sent out of town to tourist spots and the peoples centre has been out of bounds.
I want my friends and family from interstate and overseas to experience Alice as a place of life and people. Not a place to ignore whilst they are put on buses to here, there and everywhere (which is all good, a lot of here, there and everywhere).
Tourists still want to experience living there. This is an amazing opportunity to showcase Alice Springs and everywhere else. Anzac Oval – our history, our story.

GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Jack, I do not have to walk a mile in anyone’s shoes.
It is clearly obvious that bandaid government mentality is all wrong.
What happened to outcomes and audits. Never happened. Throw more money at is the battle cry.
Regards of the fact that billions of dollars has only exacerbate the problem.
Money for nothing comes to mind.
Yet for governments to get that money some of us work hard to pay taxes, fees, levies and so forth. Our borrowings are through the roof. Time for outcome audited funding checks.

National Indigenous Art Gallery future in doubt: Gunner
Welcome to the facts of the matter.
The minority of people do not want it on the oval. Great.
The majority knew it was not going on the oval. The majority knew it was going to be built on the demolition site of the old Anzac school site.
The minority did not want to hear this. Again the minority ill informed are heard over the majority well informed.
This has to end asap.
Ignorance and stupidity must not win the vote. Well informed and knowledge should always win.

Traditional owners unite to dump Anzac as gallery site
Why do I keep reading Anzac oval? The gallery is not being built on Anzac Oval. It is being built on the site of Anzac Highschool.

GST slice-up rooted in historic wrongs
All tax payers’ money allocated to assisting the vulnerable in our country should never be based on race.
Australians should be treated equally and fairly.
Non Australians should not be permitted to apply for legal aid, Centrelink and Medicare.
Refugee payments should be paid by the Immigration Department until they become Australian citizens. Migrants should be required to work and support themselves until they are Australians citizens.
The divisions that orchestrate themselves by way of the government departments who support apathied and racism must be closed down.
There is no room in Australian for racism. Equality and freedom of opportunity should always be our objective.
Close down every department that is racist. Aboriginal v non Aboriginal is racist by its very presence.
We are freed from histories of enslavment and British tyranny.
We have struggled worked and fought to get to where we are.
Our histories should not define who we are. As a country were we are should speak loudly of our journey.
To view history as a reason to demand special treatment is wrong.
During the journey we have been doing that together.
To say to a fellow Australian that they must be sorry or be punished for the deeds of their forbears is rediculous.
Wake up people. Racism finds its birth in living in the past and making today and our future a prison built from the bars of history.

Children in care management system to cost $229m
$229m to maintain good record keeping for 2000 to 3000 kids: Not sure about the worth in that when these kids need human support and interaction.
A computer system to keep paid employees up to date with situations sounds a bit out of touch to me. For less than that amount four very big 24/7 youth centres could be built and that gives children safety, food people to interact with.
These kids are not toys to bring out when you have time to access them. They need support and care.
The money should be going to assist the kids, not the paid social workers who sit at their desks from 8am to 4:20pm.
Government is a joke and are definitely neglecting our kids.
