Nah, nothing confusing there man? Woman?
You mentioned an elephant in a room. I thought it looked a bit lonely, poor bugger, so I added a few more. More better now, not lonely, no shreds. Like that.

Cr Satour wants answers on ‘verbal abuse & violence threat’
@ Concerned Arrernte, Posted March 14, 2018 at 8:16 pm:
Given the state of Alice Springs today, or perhaps better yet, tonight, in which rampaging children are holding the town hostage and councillors feel the need of a protective escort when walking between the council car park and the council chambers; given that after how many years of CLC control there is still no enterprise out on the homelands, simply sit-down money from welfare and mining royalties; given the increase in alcohol abuse leading to family abuse leading to child abuse; given the distracting substitution of bromides such as Australia Day and flags on a hill for anything more substantive; given the observable truth that successive NT governments have demonstrated zero ability to address these issues in a manner leading to a change for the better; given just those more obvious elephants in the room, I think it is well past time for everyone, not just Cr. Price, to be showing anger.

Here’s a question: Is there another local jurisdiction in Australia in which the councillors / aldermen feel the need to ask for protective escorts when walking to and from council meetings?
Just how vicious a little town have we become?
Are we still capable of self-government, at least to the extent that the Alice Springs Town Council represents local self-government?
I hope the answer is yes, because if it isn’t, the power stepping in will be Darwin, and if that comes to pass we will be well and truly phucked.

With respect, please, Catherine and Jacinta, stop it. Just stop it.
One of the key reasons this town is not progressing is because you lot refuse to make common cause, you and your extended families. Enough!
We need both of you, you and all the others, to work together, not to continually tear each other to shreds.

Hong Kong is now an integral part of the Peoples Republic of China. No more will foreign interference be tolerated.

The “containment” of China is simply not happening.
Instead of acknowledging this new geopolitical reality, we persist with doomed and demented projects like Five Eyes and the Angle-Zionist Empire of Chaos.

Council resignations and surprising alliances
This is a very slippery slope we are taking. I am not saying we shouldn’t take it as Willshire was by all accounts, including his own, a predatory racist and a murderer.
But, and it’s a big but, once the iconoclasts get some wind in their sails, what comes next. The book burners are already out in force.
Mark Twain’s US classic novel Tom Sawyer is under attack because in it he has one character named Nigger Jim. Admittedly this is unacceptable in today’s world, but a century and a half ago it was fully acceptable.
I wonder if they, the iconoclasts, will turn their attention to the Old Testament.
As for Stuart’s statue, get over it. He was a very important historical figure here in the Centre, and he was not a bad man. If there is a desire to address a perceived color bias in that park, nominate a countryman to accompany him. I am sure Council will fall all over themselves to comply.


Pine Gap and Five Eyes: what did they know about COVID-19?
Charlie, Did you see the Donald on tonight’s news? If I’m not mistaken he’s suggesting people inject ultraviolet light (is that possible?) and/or a cleaning fluid.
Clearly the man is as mad as a meat axe, but he does have the world hanging on and repeating his every word.
And you say you are not amused? Chill! At least Putin is (for now?) off the hook.
China did it.
And just to clarify, I did say conspiracy theories are, or can be, amusing. That’s because they are.
I also think the flim flam man is a hoot and good fun. That’s because he is.
I did not say the death of 50,000 is amusing or fun, and it’s a cheap ad hominum misdirection from you to insinuate I did.


Pine Gap and Five Eyes: what did they know about COVID-19?
Fair go, Charlie.
You use terms like “robust form of evidence”, and “very strong indicator” to advance a theory, and then level suggestions of conspiracy theories on any other interpretation.
All I’m saying is an open mind is a good mind to have.
As for conspiracy theories, they’re entertaining. Mostly bullshit, a bit like elections, but good fun. Just watch the Golden Golem of Greatness, the great flim flam man himself. Do you really think he’s not enjoying himself?


Pine Gap and Five Eyes: what did they know about COVID-19?
@ Charlie Carter, Posted April 22, 2020 at 2:59 pm: I wish I could share your certainty that the origin of Covid-19 is settled, but I rather think an open mind here might be more useful.
As this attempt to assign culpability to China progresses, and with the emergence of quite massive legal cases gaining momentum in the US, China will defend herself.
It will be at least interesting, and possibly informative, to learn what she has to say about how and where this all started.
And isn’t it true that as new evidence emerges, scientific theses evolve? I doubt if any of this is fully done and dusted just yet.
