Let's talk about Australia, mates.
>We're looked after by our own country, we fuck up one of our limbs, we're covered and don't have to keep a fucked up limb until we get money together
>No gun issues, virtually no risk of a mass shooting or any of that stupid American shit.
>One of the most free countries on the planet.
>Quality of life here in Australia is fucking brilliant, mate.
>Fuckin' centrelink if you're studying or looking for a job, which is a sustainable income until you get work.
>Just an all-round great country to live in, if you're lucky enough.
At the end of the day, I don't care if you love us or hate us, but I feel fucking blessed to be born in this country. Go glad I wasn't born in to a third world country like America or Iraq.
Strayans are the best shitposters to ever step on this earth
I only care for their women
>implying you even come into contact with abos
We've pretty much made them extinct, they don't factor into my life at all
There's plenty of shit to improve, but still, can't whine about being the second most livable country in the world with the most livable cities in the world
Yes life here in the Socialis... I mean democratic federation of Australia is great comrade. If you have your work license and can pay all the taxes and as long as we keep telling each other how lucky we are and how happy we are.
(Have they stopped monitoring this thread yet?)
The public healthcare system needs to take care of bulk dental. Apart from this and softdrug & arms prohibition, Australia is alright.
Pretty fucking ignorant state but then again thats just humanities.
Depends what you are into bro.
The East is a hell of a lot more connected. You don't realize how isolated you are over there till you see the East coast. City-wise Brisbane is alright just cops everywhere. But good for clubbing etc. Northern NSW is where Im at and its beautiful man. Rain-forest, white beaches, just a bit tougher getting work. Hippies, townies, yuppies and surfers.
Visited Adelaide, thought it was alright... bit of a weird city. Like its desolate...but has stuff in it. Like...went out saturday night and saw pretty much noone in the city...yet you have a zoo?
Anyways... why the fuck is the suicide and murder rate so high in Adelaide?
Mate, you come here saying that Australia isn't free, i'm telling you it is.
So if i'm wrong, tell me how I'm wrong. Lived here my whole life, mate. Been free, and absolutely loving it.
So again, cunt, if you're going to push your argument, back it up with some facts. Stupid fucking yank.
Zero gun violence
We are literally free to live our lives as we please. How about this mate, you tell us where you're from and we'll compare the two hey?
zero gun violence is a complete lie australia is the number one sink hole for shadow government violence.. from the mother fucking sky mother fuck by a cunt sitting in an underground honeycomb of military bunkers & networks.
the fucking hypocritic garbage from you retards mfw.
commonwealth is old news time for an update.
again, free dental!
It's not a lie. We don't have guns so how the fuck are we going to be violent with them. Ever hear of the gun buy back decades ago?
We have sorted our shit out. Something you amerifats can't and will -never- do.
Because despite the fact that we are so much younger than your country, we are a smarter, stronger nation of likeminded people who don't want to mass murder eachother, and only want to co-exist.
How about those wars you people started, hey mate? You remember the one where hundreds of thousands of people died for no good reason? over weapons of mass destruction that were non-existant.
Well done, ya dumb cunts.
Oh, you mean to say this FREE HEALTHCARE is now bad because it's regulated and based of citizen tax.
Mate, we're fucking SMART because we do that. We tax citizens a very small amount to provide very costly procedures if they are ever needed.
You fuck yourself up in Australia, you're taken care of, in America, you're taken care of only if you can afford it. Fuck the poor and homeless hey mate.
Nice troll mate
Our country is fucking terrible. We've had 5 Prime Ministers in 5 years and this year it will be 6 in 6
Our public services are borderline 3rd world where whenever there is a little rain and a bit of thunder its "Oh better stop what i'm doing because our shitty fucking wiring is about to blow out.
Our Internet is a joke, our health care is about to go to shit.
Don't you dare say this country is great while its on its way to be the biggest cesspool of liberal cucking and citizen fucking the free world has ever seen. Fuck Australia.
Fuck off, you silly dickhead. If you don't like it, you're welcome to bugger off to another country and live elsewhere. Know why you haven't yet? Because you know inside your pint sized brain, that Australia is the best place to live.
Just like any of the other unappreciative cunts that live here, if you don't like it, fuck off to America or England.
Unlike you brutha I have more than one country to compare us to. Every travelled Europe? Asia? Scandinavia? Pacific Islands? Been everywhere mate, and I gotta say the oppression here is very real. None of you know what actual freedom is. We got lucky and had a bit of wealth early one because of resource but it is drying up fast. This country is in a fuckload of trouble ey.
See above. Having to pay for cancer treatment. Being regularly fucked at work because somehow a Work agreement means your allowed to have no rights. Basic medical shit like blood tests will need to be paid for as well as CT scans. Having just no fucking rights man. This country is shit. And kek if you think centrelink helps. they fucking don't. I was in the fucking hospital every week and I could not go on the doll with sickness benefits because i might get better so they wouldn't pay me. I was apparently fit and healthy to work from the ICU
You cancer free mate? You healthy? listen cunt, i'm sorry that you had to go through that, but it's not Australias fault, and I PROMISE you if you went to America and got sick from cancer, you'd be way worse off.
I cant talk about that, honestly, because I've not had cancer, i've lost people close to me from it but i've never had to pay for that. So you very well may be right. That's not to say that Australia is a bad place to live because you had to pay for a very expensive sickness.
Again, feel free to leave, mate. If you cant see all the great things provided to you from this country FOR FREE, then you don't deserve them.
I've been to a few different countries, but I don't need to go everywhere to know that we have it good here, mate. If you see the shit America is facing, and compare it to what we face, you'll realize that we are much better off than the "best country in the world". We dont need to worry about being shot dead at school, or in a theatre. We dont have to worry about gang violence. (and yes, i know we have gangs here but there is NO comparison to the shitty gangs we have here and.. say.. the crips or bloods.)
Now hold up a minute. Ive had ct scans, ive had blood tests, none of which I have - ever - paid for. Is this new? have the only recently started charging people for these tests?
Perth is basically a better Brisbane without the inferiority complex all queenslanders have about not being in NSW or VIC.
Sydney is the ambitious older brother of Melbourne who is the cultured creative type
>We dont need to worry about being shot dead at school, or in a theatre. We dont have to worry about gang violence. (and yes, i know we have gangs here but there is NO comparison to the shitty gangs we have here and.. say.. the crips or bloods.)
Well, crazy shit like that is just an unavoidable consequence of being a world superpower.
It saddens me that my country uses most of its money on it's military and pisses in the face of it's citizens. Then again, we are running desperately low on oil, so America's gonna die sooner or later.
Alright, I concede. You are right, not everything is free. But from the best of my knowledge, the majority of things would be. Obviously excluding specialists.
For example, I accidentally stabbed a chizel through my left wrist when i was 15 and I was in hospital for a while. They gave me about 55 stitches after an hour long surgery, and a week in hospital after that. I never paid a thing.
Same for when I broke my leg back in 2010. Was in hospital for a good week, they fixed me up, didn't pay a cent.
Perspective is a beautiful thing, I know we got it pretty good right now, nowhere near as good as our parents had it mind you. Let me break some of it down for you, We are basically a big mining and agriculture country. Resources are on the decline except copper, gold and uranium. Our biggest export Coal, is in a huge slump and will not recover. This is manifesting now and will continue as a recession, so they print more money - hike up the taxes, blame labor and the libs get in to restrict more rights and take more off us, giving it all to their buddies in the big corporations. The cycle will continue on and on until local businesses are all but gone, everyones struggling cause coles and woolies hike up prices, cops fucking everywhere monitoring everything including online, now we got mandantory vaccinations, record unemployment, our media is getting locked up for reporting anything unapproved, roads getting privatized so you gotta pay just to drive, watch it get worse man.
Amen. I mean,I love America. You guys are awesome. But you are also -very- self destructive.
I honestly do not see a way you will solve your gun violence issues. If you take the guns away from your citizens i'm sure they'll revolt and it might cause a new civil war. It's - that - serious.
Yes it is free if you have a Medicare card and the imaging is referred by a specialist. It is NOT free if it's workers compensation or accident compensation. You pay for that and then get reimbursed by the workers comp insurer.
If you paid for that stuff without being in the system or because your not entitled to it then that's your own fault.
That's what it should be. We work hard were taxed pretty hard. Free Medical should be free. I'm not happy to see this country go to shit. But its the reality were facing. If our Government cant get on track were fucked.
>what other socialist brainwashed people of the world don't get
Things that are free to you are not free. They do not materialize out of a machine that constructs shit like medical equipment and the power to run said equipment.
Goddamn, people call America retarded, but if your country would stop poking abos, sucking down goon bags and fucking women that sound like inbred south-sussex whores, macroeconomics might manage to work it's way into your knowledge base.
I'm a Perthfag too, but Eastern states are 10 times shitter then perth, perth has fuck all and good luck having any fun unless you're rolling some kid for his sticks but hey, perth is fuckloads less hectic then Melbourne
Can tell you're an uneducated American who has come here to hate on Australia because you're jealous.
And I can't blame you. America is in such a bad place right now, if I was American, i'd be hating on us Aussies too.
It's okay, we're here to chat to if you ever need to vent, alright mate? Cracking open a beer for you right now.
Work in media, just focusing on community news keeping locals informed. This takes up all of my time right now. Also cancer research, and putting weekends into tree planting. It won't fix the country but it is a role I play. Being in the media however gives you a much bigger picture and I am worried honestly. We take everything for granted, but very few people fight for our rights now. People barely even notice. Here is a great example, you know that ASIO officers are now immune from all law? They could rape you, and not have a charge laid against them.
Except there are no mass shootings and very few gun related murders in Australia, and it has been the case for a good 30 years almost..
Literally the ONLY thing i can think of that has happened, that's gun related, in Australia over the past 16 years.. is the lindt cafe shooting. And even then that was just one guy, and he only killed 2 people before he was killed.
Compare that to the, what... 10000 gun related murders in your country over the same time?
Correct, it's not free in terms of costs to provide but it is free to access. The cost being amortised in aggregated expenditure and paid for by equitable taxation based on capacity to pay.
It's not perfect but it's a hell of a lot better than the systems in most other places.
I almost forgot.... cunt.
Why do you people think America is a shooting zone? If you're not a nigger then you don't really have to worry about guns here. Niggers kill each other. We leave them to it. Take niggers out and we have less violence than Norway.
ASIO immunity, nope complete bullshit. They have certain powers but are not above the law. If they break it, like raping someone, they're probably even more fucked than the average idiot.
looked after by our own country... cunt let me tell you something about my country , i was a soldier i would put down my fucking life for this country , one fine day during regular army fuckery i snapped my leg,long story short i was kicked out of the army due to leg injury with no medical benefits and it took me 6 months to get a job because my leg was fucked and literally every fucking job interview i had i was told sorry mate your broken we dont want you.
think about that for a second mate literally be willing to die for your country then get kicked to the curb when you get injured....
You're right mate, just a bit annoying when it happens every day. And when you literally can't give anything.. for whatever reason.. they start hating on you.
"you fukkin dawg cunt, racist white fella " etc... when all you've said is, "nah sorry, cant at the moment"
Can we just talk about blackface for a sec...
Is anyone here actually fucking offended by it? like for real, cunts can't seem to go to the letterbox without getting offended 10 times on the way.
There are more legally owned guns in private citizens hands now than there were before the buyback (which by the way only took about 20% of guns out of circulation).
Our lack of gun violence can be attributed to our culture in general being less violent, a high standard of living, low population and the controls around who can buy guns (literally anyone with a clean record willing to put in an afternoon of fucking around with paperwork).
There's enough guns in the hands of sport shooters and hunters to kill every last person on this continent yet it doesn't happen.
I'm not saying we're perfect, mate. That seems fuckin' shit and honestly unaustralian. But mate, what I am trying to say is... we're better off than most other places in the world, if not all.
We aren't perfect. But we aren't bad either. We're as close to perfect as you can get in my honest opinion.
It's a US thing. Blackface wasn't even a thing until the Yanks brought it over.
Like the blackboy plant. No-one was offended by it until some goody two shoes cunt complained. Also why we can't have ba-ba-black sheep..
Did you talk to the vet affairs people? You should have been covered.
dis my laaand, fuck ya dawg cunt, suck me off at the next station, my laaaand
This shit happened at a train station literally down the street from me. Funny shit.
That "everything wants to kill you" is a fuckin' myth, mate. Yeah it's true... if you live in the fuckin' bush, mate.
Here in the city, you're as safe as anywhere else.
But yeah, fuck the heat though.
Women don't look like that in Australia, they look like this, statistical fact, 163cm 70kg, fucked up entitled cunt attitude.
True enough, I could see that. But I personally refuse to live on a continent that grows leaves that try to torture you for decades for brushing against them, just a matter of personal policy lol.
I've lived in America for around 10 years and just moved to brissy last month. Originally from syd.
Australia is honestly the best place in the world to live in terms of quality of life, however the people are unhelpful and have a shit work ethic. That being said, new york is the capital of the world in the business sense so I'm comparing apples and oranges.
As for the abos, people tend to think that they're all those disgusting black fucking povos. Those ones are at the top of Australia and are really more Tongan if you know what I mean. Most of the abos are really fucking white. Sort of like Greg inglis vs Sam thaiday. Me great granny was a boong and she was whiter than me. And I'm from English stock.
Also, people tend to believe that Australia was the convict capital of the world but neglect to mention that America was used as a human landfill and years and years before. And you guys got the shitcunt rapists and murderers. We got the povo cunts who stole loaves of bread to feed their pickpocket children.
Personally though, I miss new york. Australia is too relaxed for me. But it's the perfect place to live if you're in school or old. But you'll need to move abroad to do any serious work.
Regardless of where it originated it just blows my mind that people actually give a shit about it...
We're to sensitive, especially when abos are more or less just a complete and utter fucking drain economically.
Is there a native people anywhere else in the world that gets even close to the amount of benefits and shit they do?
Oh, please. Americans only recently just legalized that shit. Tell me about the countless American citizens who have been thrown in prison for damn near a decade for growing their own little marijuana plant.
Criminals shoot criminals.
Not kid's at school.
Gun control isn't about stopping every one having guns. Its about making that one nutter unable to put his hands on a semi auto and go crazy
No matter how much I take it easy, and don't let shit bother me or piss me off... this fucking pisses me off big time mates
Fact is, as politically uncorrect as it is to say it, these mother fuckers would still be up their tree's chuckin' spears if it wasn't for the people who "discovered" australia and made it what it is today.
Ungrateful cunts, move back to the bush if you don't like the citizens. Fuck ya.
Also fuck Buzzfeed, American cunts talking about Australia like they're one of us.
The overall violent crime rate has been on a steady decline in the US since the early 1990's, along with pretty much every westernized country.
Sorry to hear that mate. I haven't been in service but my mates have recently come back. One of them has a fucked shoulder and shell shock. The people in his RSL really helped him get back on his feet until the government assessed his case and gave him what he needed. There is definitely someone you could talk to to get you through the rough patch you're in mate. If not gov, then RSL etc.
