Comment on Asylum seeker led recovery for Alice: businessman’s proposal by Janet Brown.

Dom, detention centre was your take. And your words. No-one else used that title. You should have read Paul’s article. It is about providing accommodation. A very well overdue housing increase for Alice that will benefit us all. You seem intent on labeling the conservatives in town as white racist. None of the people I know are like that. We are conservative and we are in business, and yes, we have a desire to grow our businesses and with business prospering so does our town and the rewards of that flow to the general population. We are not greedy either. Our wealth ensures a wealthy town by [fostering] new businesses and opportunities. In all Dom we all benefit. Even you.

Next Dominic you’ll be advocating that we set up our town as a child free zone. And not allow anyone else in. When we have kids our town increases in population that means we need more land for housing. More business for job opportunities. That means bigger working capital that does mean. Buckets more money. So tell us Dominic. Why are you so scared of growth and prosperity. And why do you want to fight at every level. Opportunity for migration. Opportunities for our kids and those who. Want to make Alice home. Why do you want to slam the door on those who are looking for an open door to participate in the health wealth of our territory

This idea was talked about prior to Christmas. Some guy looking at how we get our town going forward shared the idea about November over the radio. More and more people pushing this idea we might actually achieve something beneficial for Alice.

This is a fantastic idea. Boost our housing market. With many more new houses. And units. And life looks even better.

Planning another plan
We need planning to be the role of the town council, not the NT government from Darwin.
How can we plan for our future development when there is no plan.
A town plan from the early 80s is lost.
Until we have a town plan on development any master plan is a joke. And to my knowledge the master plan does not include development areas for our growth.

Senator Scullion will not contest Federal election
Identity politics. It has to end. Politicians need to be representing the people. The Territory.
So far I have seen none of this from those putting up their hands.
They are only talking at election time. Voters are confused on their rights. As a voter we have the right to demand elected members who will work for a better Territory. Not a better Darwin over the rest of the Territory.
Our Federal ministers have the role to work for the entire country. As minsters elected by states and territories into a Federal seat they should be ensuring the best of Federal funding for their electorate. They are elected to represent Australians. Yet they are managed by government departments.
The departments have signed agreements to allow overseas businesses to avoid taxes. The departments who have allowed foreign governments to own Australian land. The tax office which negotiated agreements with overseas companies to avoid paying taxes that everyday Australians have to pay.

Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
Appeasement is not the answer. Appeasement is the catalyst for further division.
January 26 is the date chosen to celebrate our place in the world.
People from around the world choose our country to call home. Because we are amazing. Australians are proud of our home. The division based on race is not Australian. That is apartheid. We need to stop this vile hatred of Australia now.
Australia Day is not up for destruction by an angry and racist group.

Custodians decline meeting with council on gallery
I for one do not see this town and its progress as being at the whim of aboriginal people over the residents of Alice Springs. This type of division has its claws strongly embedded in segregation and apartheid mentality. The future of our town should be decided by all residents. I am so fed up with people using the race card to gain control. This should not be about who has the biggest stick, it should be about the majority seeking growth and prosperity for Alice Springs. Not personal agendas and petty jealousy.

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.
