Comment on Advice on ‘insane’ air fares from blackfeller Bob Katter by James T Smerk.

Steve” “Constitution of Australia which allows the government to make and implement laws based on race”.
It’s a double edged sword, this exact section allowed the Government to do what they did to the one race.
If this aspect was removed they wouldn’t be able to finely focus on the helping the Aboriginal people, they would need to use a broad sword which would affect everyone and cost 100 times the amount. For all the wrong things the government does it does mean well.
I think they just need better consultation before acting. Much like the detention centre Royal Commission, which was set up the morning after a TV show aired (which turns out was biased and inaccurate).
I’m not saying there weren’t wrong things happening that needed to be looked at, more that they should have investigated the facts prior to committing $50m on a Royal Commission.
End of Rant.

Just imagine these assaults happening by white people on Aboriginal people…


Mass rally shows fury, distrust for police, government
I think you will find it’s more a race issue.
I as a white person was walking down the mall yesterday and on three occasions got called racist slurs from different groups.
Having to explain to my kids why this happens and why it is apparently OK is the hard bit.


Government fails bush on health, police: McConnell
NT Government appear to have a grand plan to flood Alice Springs with people from the communities to make Alice a mega community.
So this means a lot more “break-ins, car thefts and stealing from the stores, mostly by young people, some operating as gangs”.
The Government would want to get on top of crime now before this all happens and the Alice turns into the crime capital of Australia (more so).


Most money for mining, military
Declining population and no big government projects on the horizon means not private investment. Why would they flog a dead horse?


Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
Wow, the prices are really jacked up.
We don’t want you to climb, but we still want lots of money so up all the other prices.
I understand the reason why not to climb but it’s just plain and simple greed upping the prices so much.
I picture people sitting around saying we need to stop the climb but we don’t want to lose money, here is a win win, close it and up the prices.
