Comment on GST billions yet we’re still the basket case by Hal Duell.

Wow! Deep thanks to Erwin’s paper for publishing all this.
The incompetence of successive NT governments is laid out for all to see, but so what? They are hardly alone. Look at the US. Look at Europe. Hell, look at the Globalist World in its incompetent entirety.
Thirty years ago when the USSR’s communist model fell apart, I read an opinion piece somewhere which suggested that if the noise from that collapse (communism) was loud, even louder will be the noise when the other shoe (capitalism) drops.
This goes to the crux of why I appreciate The Donald. His is the most honest face America could be presenting to the world at this point in time. So look at it closely, and marvel at how we got here.
And then fasten your seat belt.

Help from fracking campaigner, or manipulating students?
This is one of the best news stories that has popped up on my screen in a long time.
My advice to the students would be to maintain your sense of outrage and to question the motives of all who are trying to co-opt that outrage, whether they be the pollies telling you to stay in school or the choir-masters leading your chants.
And be assured of this: The world you will grow into will not be the same as the world into which you were born.
Turbo capitalism and the ongoing rape of our planet will see to that.


Liberals and Labor: Tweedledum and Tweedledee on Pine Gap
With the current state of international affairs, laced as they are with loose bluster and rattle, including irresponsible nuclear chatter, the bullseye on Pine Gap becomes a thing of concern.
Let’s just hope if “they” do take it out, “they” use one of those low-yield, precision smart numbers and drop it on one of those golf balls.
But don’t knock Pine Gap. Ever wonder why Alice has, and will always have, a long strong airport runway?


96 trees chopped down to ‘duplicate’ highway
For whatever reason this work has attracted funding right now, it’s a good thing.
Think of it as another small step on the Outback Way.


Art gallery more than selling cappuccinos: Scott McConnell
I think SA has the gallery. But I like the idea of enlarging the Indigenous art and cultural trail to link like stories from all areas.
I can easily see an eventual cultural centre here, maybe one structured on a revolving hub-and-spoke model.
Alice Springs would benefit more from a completed Outback Way, which would feed into a National Indigenous Cultural Centre, than it would from a gallery.


Make September 8 Australia Day, anthem in Pitjantjatjara
Has anyone asked the descendants of Matthew Flinders what they think of the proposal to bring his remains to Australia? I hope so, as surely common courtesy would make that a first step.
Just asking …
