Comment on Reasons for a health pact in the NT by Janet Brown.

Let’s ban living, breathing or better still let’s introduce military law and keep the people clean and healthy. Let’s put Russell in charge he will ensure we all live his way after all he has the answers to wrong living and forget about free will that is what is destroying our existence.
Just like any extremist Russell is intent on forcing his beliefs on the rest of us. Yes, we have issues yes we have addictions and yes we make mistakes and guess what: That means we are human not robots or zombies.
Acceptance assistance and support is needed for all people and from all people. Life is hard enough without people out there pointing the finger at you for your style.
We all do our best and sometimes the struggle is too much and escapism is the only answer to ease the pain.
Focus on why addictive behaviours are increasing. Housing, income, learned behaviours, poor parenting and this list goes on and on.
So what is the answer? There is no one answer to fit all. And banning everything is an act of dictatorship. Easy to focus on what people are doing wrong, harder to find focus on why. Cause and effect are all different. Addiction is not the answer but it is the way station in time of depression, loss, isolation and hopelessness.
Russell, your way of pointing out the obvious will only turn the way station into their permanent lifestyle. I don’t have the answer but I have empathy for loss lives.

Some people want the cake and don’t want to know how to make and bake it. Hope you enjoy your cup of tea or glass of red with your cake you just brought. You did not make it so you don’t care what’s in it. We all get it. Real information real knowledge is not stats so it holds no relevance to you. Eat drink and read stats. Leigh’s world

Reasons for a health pact in the NT
Leigh. It is great to provide info reading to expand our knowledge. But as I have said before many times. There are many parts to every problem. As a person who is gluten intolerant the swapping of sugar to wheat glucose in ice cream biscuits lollies and fast foods.
And those reporting an over supply of sugar products not researching that the products that contain no sugar at all. It is wheat glucose.
The amount of daily products with trans fats. Known to increase cancer in humans. This cancer component is even found in some pure olive oils, margarines, softer butters and so forth and that cancer product in most gluten free products. As a chef pure foods are better.
I check all labeling to ensure no wheat products to ensure no trans fats is reducing the amount of products I can eat off the shelf as snack foods.
Research how potato chips are produced. Caustic soda is used to clean and whiten the potato.
And to ensure a better salable product. And then coated with flour to finish product for the deep fryer. Then cooked in vegetable oil highly saturated with trans fats. One of the most popular take-aways.
At home I have an air fryer and use fresh potatoes. I cook in real butter or lard. And yes we need to fix the products that requires our govt to ensure that are foods are produced without the use of toxic poisons. The sweets are made from sugar.
If you research sugar (raw sugar). Not over refined sugar. Is a natural antibiotic needed to ensure healthy internal systems.
Jack and snack food is fine. It is what they have added to the foods and how foods are prepared is the issue.
Low fat products have a real effect of triggering the body to store fat hence weight gain and excess skin fat in the pinch test.
Fast food is a part of life in our fast lane lifestyles. Snacking in times of quick fix hunger. It is never good to attack the outcomes when you fail to attack the source of the problem?

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.
