Comment on Chinese, Singaporian pipeline firm wants Aussie handout by Ian Rennie.

Australia, thanks to our pathetically weak politicians and the apathy of the population, is seen as a soft touch by foreigners, we sell our assets for SFA and then provide the infrastructure needed to transport it.
It won’t be long and the foreign takeover of Australia will be complete and we can be thankful for the few scraps the new owners throw us.

Fracking foes to take protest to Origin meeting
With due respect and with no intention to insult, I must ask why should any company big or small, foreign or Australian owned, consult Aboriginal Australians about their intention to once again rape this once beautiful country?
Anyhow there will be no objection and if there is a few dollars thrown in their direction should silence any objections.
I do hope that there is some thought given by some about their responsibility to protection of their country.

Alice students fire up for climate action
I totally agree in fracking being banned, full on totally banned.
But have a think, people, about everything that supports the Alice (and other places the world over).
Are you all willing to give up everything from pushbikes to computers.
Just have a very good think about walking everywhere and even living a hunter and gatherer lifestyle. OMG! Can’t see you mob doing that, no more fast foods even, heaven forbid!
I could go on and on but no use wasting my breath, just have a really good think.
Oh yes, I am very much against polluting in the name of profits and pollies taking back pocket payouts to allow the country to be raped.
Don’t happen? Pull my other leg.

US marines in Darwin could drag Australia into war
I do not see it as a threat, however if we must do then we need to look at all the Chinese “bases” around the country including the Port of Darwin.
American military presence in Australia is a plus in many ways and in no way a threat.

‘The Territory is broke. We’re living way beyond our means.’
Crikey! And we have Short on Brains claiming Labor will do so well running the country?

St Francis House: Excellence sought and achieved
Yes, Brian Butler had a wonderful father in James Henry Butler (deceased) who shared many stories and facts with me over the years regarding his wife (Brian’s mother) who he met in Darwin and the hurdles he faced from the authorities because he wanted to marry a full blood Aboriginal woman and the fact that he was most disturbed by misconceptions that Brian was of the “stolen generation”.
The last time I saw Brian was at his father’s house in Pt Augusta at around the time of his mother’s passing and I am yet to see a man with feature so much alike of his father’s.
