Comment on Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership by Another Observer.

What a bunch of pathetic losers we have managed to inflict upon ourselves – Shame, Shame Shame.
We get it, people are in it for themselves. And there are conflicts of interest – but there always will be conflicts. At the end of the day, we had the Prime Minister visit the town and we want to bitch about the cost of the reception? Give me a break.
If you want to bitch about the costs to the town, let’s have a look around at the number of businesses that are being driven out of the town.
You have councillors running charities that are elbowing full tax paying businesses out of operation, you have council awarding work to out of town businesses, and meanwhile the Alice Springs based businesses are wondering how they can afford to pay their damned rates.
The vitriol that is directed at an Aboriginal woman who wants to put her hand up to try to make a difference.
I can’t figure out if the insults are directed at Ms Price herself or because she has the gumption to choose to run for a different side of politics.
We wonder why our kids are out of control when this is the example that you mob set. Grow up and do the damned job that you are paid to do!

Hold the economy to ransom? Would that be like “charities” masquerading as business and pushing full tax paying entities out of the market?

Business index shows NT to be least confident
We are taxed at every damned level that is imaginable – sustainability the Left cries, there is nothing sustainable about the charges that they are inflicting upon the populace, regardless of what level you are operating at.
But think about the business owners – not those supported businesses or the charities that are awarded work, not because they are the best, the cheapest, the most innovative, no, it’s because of the colour of the owner’s or the employee’s skin.
What the NT, local and Commonwealth governments have managed to introduce is the most racist damning policies that have ever been conceived.
They are stealing business profits via taxation, and using those funds to put those same firms out of business by picking winners and losers in the award of works and contracts.
Should Indigenous Australian’s be encouraged into business? Absolutely, but when they are subsidised by the taxpayer and given “not for profit” status that relieves them of the burden of taxation that every ordinary business faces, then all the government is doing is creating poverty for future generations from all races.
It is simply shameful.


National Account figures: Territory last
Also just goes to show, what happens when you favour non-taxpaying businesses over private owned business, and use suppliers not based in the NT.
Might be time for government to start to have a look at where they are spending “their” money.


There’s more to renewables than sunshine
Meanwhile, throughout the world, there is a growing realisation that the great climate con is all about the money and where it is flowing.
How much longer are people going to put up with this renewables fiasco?
It seems to have escaped a great number of politicians throughout the West that business = tax revenue and the more businesses that are driven out of operation by escalating costs the less real tax there is.
