I am going to live into my 80’s. The reason for ths is that I drink clean city water, work indoors in an office, eat food that is carefully vetted by heath agencies, and if I am ill I see a medical professional. These are all cultural factors. Yo cannot simply drop the life expectency of urban people on aboriginal communities in remote areas like it was some sort of commodity. You can’t food-drop life expectency – it coms from the way you live.

$100 to see two bands outdoors?

What a fucking ripoff.

Maelinar 11:18 pm 17 Aug 07

They probably get in for free..

instead of giving them special dispensations for this, and this, and of course this, and all of that as well

How do you propose to achieve parity without funding measures to overcome the deficit? I’m sure everybody would love to hear your well-researched, tried and tested magic bullet policy agenda – you know, the one that’s eluded every single government since Federation.

For example, you say you want educational equity for Indigenous people “like the rest of Australians”, but I also bet you don’t have the faintest fucking idea how to do this. I also bet you’re against special assistance for Indigenous kids, like homework centres, in-school tutorial assistance, fares assistance to go someplace that actually has a school, and so on, because they’re all “special dispensations”.

Likewise, I suspect you’re largely ignorant of “special dispensations” Aboriginal people make for themselves – like working for the dole voluntarily since 1976, delivering essential services to themselves because governments won’t, and forgoing basic entitlements whinging pricks like you took for granted, like a health care card and rent assistance. Interesting that they have nothing, but they’re expected to give and never, ever take.

Do abo’s get a discount?

I bet once you’ve got a few tinnies under that pale, sagging gut of yours most of your sentences start with “now, I’m not a racist, but…”.

Reconciliation and all that….

Maelinar 4:06 pm 17 Aug 07

Reconciliation eh…

Why not treat them like the rest of australians instead of giving them special dispensations for this, and this, and of course this, and all of that as well.

Before the super-offended protectionists start flaming, I’m also talking about the right to police protection and education standards we also enjoy as well.

Just remember also it was you bleeding hearters that came up with the concept of ‘oh lets look after the poor little darlings’ which turned into the stolen generation farce.

Ticket sales not going so well? I noticed a couple on ebay going below cost.

Fake google maps image huh…Fun.
It also says…

John Dunmore Lang Place is the open grassed area between the Reconciliation Place Mound and King Edward Terrace. The lawn covers an area of 85 metres x 114 metres.

For anyone who, like me, was wondering where the hell John Dunmore Lang Place was, OzTix has this completely useless map supposedly indicating the location.
