Sorry?

Once again, national 'sorry' day has passed, where pious public servants and media stooges bemoan the 'stealing' of aboriginal children from families because they were aboriginal.

Didn't happen of course. There was no government policy to do anything like this.

Sure governments have a track record of doing bad things, but this ain't one of them.
In fact, I am sorry.

I am sorry we didn't rescue more children from the stone age culture of child abuse, woman bashing, rape and assault that left them and still leaves them scared and disadvantaged for life.

Governments and missions might have not done as well as we would expect today (opps, hang on, governments still fail to protect the weak and the taxpayer), but they are the only ones who stood up for these children.

Let the market sort it out

One of the risks of legalising same-sex (sham) marriage is that it will become illegal to refuse to support the idea through business relationships; for instance, if a pair of men or women about to enter into a sham marriage want a cake celebrating their event, they may well follow the examples set in the USA and upon disappointing refusal, take the baker to court. Baker thereupon looses livelihood (in the land of the used to be free).

Of course, the solution is the market. No longer price anything, except standard fare; all other prices by negotiation, timing is another variable.

So, if I was the baker, I'd say, "Sure, can do, would love to do. For specials we charge $10,000, in advance. Happy to have your business. Now, let me look at my schedule...opps, can't get to it for 18 months. Will that be OK?"

Wedding photos? My fee starts at $100,000. That's my fee; that's what I feel like charging. Take it or leave it.

What fun, and its all done by the market!
