Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Another Observer.

@ Fred: With respect: “… here is no reason why business people like Steve Brown can’t take on some of these people as apprentices and show them life skills …”
Why is it private enterprises’ place to socialise and give life skills to people?
How about turning your focus on the continued failure of the school system and families who are turning out these people?

Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs
@ Dalton Dupuy: You say that this happened on the current Government’s watch and Giles must resign. However, it is all over social media at the moment: The ABC once again, changing the news to suit a political agenda, had removed the time stamp – the date on the original video 12/09/2010.
Whilst I don’t agree with or condone the treatment of anyone in this fashion, what really makes me sick to my stomach are the “activists” and political parties who are using this to beat the CLP up.
The CLP deserve heaps of criticism, and in my humble view, GILES should be booted out the door – but my guess is that we will see The Greens use this as a platform to signal their moral virtue.

Give us a bloody break – the council can’t even be bothered engaging local suppliers, but expect us to stump up year after year.
The poor taxpayer is funding how many levels of government? And for what?


Federal Budget ‘another big GST blow to the NT’
WHY should constituents in other States and Territories be forced to go without because our politicians can’t operate responsibly?
If the Treasurer would like to send me a draft of the NT Budget, and a red pen, I’ll fix the problem quick smart!


Miners are spreading myths, says environmentalist
“… yet now they are trying to hold the economy to ransom with tired big business talking points …”
Hold the economy to ransom? Would that be like “charities” masquerading as business and pushing full tax paying entities out of the market?
Take the wood out of your own eye, fella!


Parliamentary committee endorses a First Nations Voice
Obviously Neville Bonner, Ken Wyatt, Linda Burney, Nova Peris and Malarndirri McCarthy, the chap with the hat aren’t / weren’t First Nations Voices – who’d a thunk it? [Who would have thought of that …]


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.
