I wish our government would take this stance.... I'm about ready to move out of the county. Hey Aussies, how is your economy down there doing????



‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture.

Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians’.

Finally a world leader who calls it like he sees it. Former Prime Minister John Howard of Australia. America, Europe and the rest of the world should take a page out of your book!

John Howard directs his words below to those who would embrace sharia law radical Islam and Islamofacism within his country, Australia under the cover of “religion”.

BRAVO John Howard…

Former Prime Minister John Howard of Australia:


‘This (Australian) culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’. ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it o n the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

Well ****. Guess Australia is as PC as we are. There's just no place decent left in the world anymore. Let me off the planet please!

you'll probably want to find a place that isn't very tolerant.. try iraq.. the only problem is, you'll be on the other side of the spectrum.. so as long as you don't care that people aren't tolerant of you, you're golden.

G'day,

First-up - Our economy isn't going too bad, we're riding out the storm, some job losses, a downturn in spending etc. but, as far as I'm aware, nothing on what's going on in the US.

Well ****. Guess Australia is as PC as we are.
Depends where you are, those in rural / regional Victoria (Dunno about the other states) seem to have their heads screwed on right. Melburnians on the other hand are (In my opinion) too tightly wound up for their own good.

Nath - Its not that we don't like immigrants here, we just don't like the dickheads who fly / float in and start trouble. If you're willing to have a go, you're more than welcome. If you're looking to sponge off us, look elsewhere.

Dipete - Chocolate Labs aren't a problem, they're as welcome as any other Lab. RN I'm not sure on.

Come on down, crack a beer and have some fun. The door's always open.

Cheers,

Pottsie

While I am also frustrated by many things , I still prefer a more tolerant attitude cuz I don't always "fit the norm", but still feel perfectly American.

I don't know whether to LOL or weep, reading this thread.

You'd hate Canada, we welcome immigrants (and have for several hundred years). And we're allowed to be openly athiest here *gasp* and aren't so obsessed about a bit of fabric.

I am hoping that the last comment about not being obsessed about a bit of fabric is tongue in cheek but somehow I don't think so...and feel I need to speak up!

My father and grandfather, and many uncles fought so you could call our flag "a bit of fabric". They risked their lives and families so that you would have the right to say that! I'm not sure about you, but I for one am PROUD of my bit of fabric that says to the world that I am CANADIAN! I am proud that you have the right to be openly athiest, or hindu, or whatever, and I am proud that we open our doors to immigrants and my bit of fabric tells the world that! I wear that bit of fabric when I travel, I have it flying in my back yard and I am every bit as proud of it as any American (or any other nation) is of theirs.

Our country could do with a little patriotism now and again. I was awed at the celebration of the inauguration of Obama and the pride that was shown to the world...here we elect someone and no one blinks an eye, it seems...we just start bitching. Maybe if we were all a little prouder more people would display their bit of fabric to the world a little more often!

Hey guinnysmom, get off the high horse! Most of us have had family that served. Canadians are typically 'quietly patriotic'. One of the differences between us and the US that helps to define us. You celebrate your patriotism in your way and let others celebrate in theirs.

guinnysmom, I believe Canada is the greatest country in the world! But a flag doesn't make a country, and flag-waving and patriotic songs scare me. I can't really articulate why, I'll have to think about it!
