Letter to Monsignor Cappo

Posted on: November 16, 2009

Over the past 5 years, an ever increasing waste of revenue from barely 800,000 of the 1.54 million citizrns is a sad reflection on the financial competence of this administration. With more than 2000 questions blocked and diverted in the Parliament with further disclosure blocked by the FOI, it is well that print media, sometimes imperfect, has a far better concern for the community than the Government or the elected Opposition.

I trust Mr. Cappo , you are as ashamed as I am that progress is and was suppressed by political spin. How sad too, that the community has enough reason to distrust this ruling junta for its abuse of the electorate while so caught up in protecting their own affairs. Why indeed, should the 4 preferred contractors for the jails at Monarto be paid $10 million as conscience money for the Government decision to cancel the project? That they were contemplated at all, Mr.Cappo, is an indictment of failure to remove the public cost of the consequences of the self indulgence of booze, tobacco and drugs to user pays. These primary causes of much social sabotage justified a plan for more jails to fix the problem instead of dealing with the causes, more importantly, failure to recognise the need to teach community values and rule of law to children before a teen mindset. Nowhere in the report does this simple observation appear..

You and me Bob, we feel so passionate about stuff.

What did you think about Mr Rudd’s apology (forgotten and abused last century) yesterday?

Mr.Trevorrow, an Aboriginal from a Coorong tribal area and his lawyers won $750,000 compensation. The lawyers will be well pleased now that his case has created a precedent for compensation Nationwide, but will that be the end of it or is it just the beginning?

Actually its a bit scary to think too much about that one, Bob.

One should never be afraid to put a Point of View if it is based upon fact or a perception. Very often, perception is more powerful than the facts even when dealing face to face and our perceptors are engaged. I recall the female TV interview with Habib who claimed that he had been tortured repeatedly by the CIA at a secret hole in Egypt but the sync did not fit the words while being led by the question. Cheers and thank you for your interest.
