This sentence sounds starkly familiar . . .

I used it in the past tense, however. Good on you for being a supporter of your country for as long as you have. You're a true patriot, and I'm a bit of an easy quitter.

But Abbott was always going to be a solid continuation of some pretty poor turns in the road that Australia has been drivin' down for years. I'm happy considering myself an expat, no matter where I am.

Would be nice to someday come home to the great country that it should be, though . . . *stares whimsically into the distance*

Abbott wants to 'shirtfront' the leader of Russia?

Since when did our leaders use such schoolyard language?

Imagine Howard saying that.

We need to find funds to fund our air operations in Iraq?

Never heard that during our occupation of Afghanistan & Iraq with ground troops and we still delivered surpluses, which means we we're over taxed.

There wasn't this level of fear 6 months ago, ride that wave you absolute cunt.

How fucking dare you.

All for reelection.
I agree with all of this. I am an avid news reader and a general non-participant in any form of politics. It is clear none the less that our country is governed by a narrow and biased media. Most of the monkeys vote along the lines of the predominant media coverage and believe what ever the 30 second tv 6 pm news grab gives them (or the papers etc)... Whoever controls the opiate of the masses controls the masses... In any case the 'shirt fronting' thing was pretty gay....
Be good to each other.

Or as British physics professor Brian Cox put it so adroitly: “The problem with today’s world is that everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion AND have others listen to it. The correct statement of individual rights is that everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially, that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of, particularly if it is demonstrably nonsense!”

Honestly, that was one of the most well-written and gorgeous pieces I've ever read.

To wit:
Time and place differs but Islamo-fascists and the Nazis share a virulent anti-Semitism, the active persecution of minorities and blind adherence to totalitarianism through the establishment of a military-police state defined by the views of one man. In Germany in the 1930s and ‘40s that man was Hitler. Now it is al-Baghdadi or al-Zawahiri.

The best way of comprehending the extraordinary rise of Nazism in Germany in the 1930s is to see its exponents as essentially running a criminal organisation. Indeed it is hard to recall a country being run by a bigger group of thugs and misfits until Islamic State emerged late last year.

Oh, and by the way, you dicks: Clearly people like Tyson and I aren't "anti-" anything. Whether it be Jew, Muslim, Christian, whatever.

Just not a big fan of people being fucking assholes, as a totality.

I know, a huge concept for you to grasp, so it's easier for you to paint us as racists and . . . well, whatever.

Absolutely hilarious the way some of you look upon us.

Oh I agree. Poking fun at religious ideas plays into this view perfectly.

Clearly you express yourself very poorly at times then. I read your rants, in relation to the women in your life particularly, to be very often racist.

Women aren't a race. They are a void. A black pit at the center of the soul of humanity, sucking the light and warmth out of mankind and turning the landscape to a barren tundra of frozen ground where no life can prosper.

And the "do-gooders" have their way again:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-10-16/g ... ve/5817226

Apparently it's "racist" to be proud of one's country and "racist" to expect that others that choose to live here will follow likewise..

Thanks ABC! Thanks for doing the thinking for us once again.

You think you're "well informed" by getting your news from "alternative" sources?

The ABC is as biased/manipulative as you claim the Murdoch journals to be.

So don't get all high and mighty on us..

Abbott gets in room full of the world leaders and what does he do?

Starts whinging about domestic issues.

That was fucking embarrassing.

Please tell me you are not referring to the murder of two Australians by our barbarous neighbors this morning?

I wouldn't say it lacks popularity unfortunately.

Fuck all countries that execute people, not just ones who execute Aussies, or Indonesia.

Also, yes, we should move on from caring about the ramifications of mistakes idiots make while performing illegal activities.
