I asked you this before but you never answerd me, i wonder why but ill ask again ok, what culture does canadian have that Australia does not.
For one we don't promote racism. Two we get along with our neighbours and don't sit around dreaming about going to war with them someday. Three we call women , women and not sheilas. We like Americans and get along with them. We don't make anti American lunatics national heroes. etc etc etc

The Japs had 35,000 troops the Brits, Indians and Australians had a combined force of 130,000. The Aussie Gen. Gordon Bennett ran in the face of the enemy and left his army to go into Jap captivity. I don't like Japs but I can see their opinion of those who surrendered as being very low. By all rights the Aussie force should have been able to defeat the Japs by themselves. These guys weren't the tough blokes you make yourselves out to be.
The German Africa Corps was a tough bunch of blokes that are the yard stick when it comes to tough fighters.
But still the best friggin part was the railway huh yank.

Why are you replying for Rex. He was the guy who called Canadians pansies and Australians tough blokes. All I was pointing out was that Aussies weren't always that tough. I'm suppose to like it when that shit head Rex calls Canadians pansies?? Well guess what when this canuck gets backed into a corner he comes out fighting.
So your way of pointing out that even we aussies can brag a little to much is by calling the burma railway the best friggin part that happend to Australians.
See why people tend to not like you with comments like that.
If you dont like someone insult them, dont insult the suffering of their greatest generation.

1. Point out how Australia promotes racism.

2. We get along with NZ just fine thank you but it its Indonesia you’re talking about then you’re still wrong, we aren’t dreaming of going to war with them and in fact most Australians don’t give a fuck about Indonesia, i am one of them.

3. I have never called a women "Sheila" and i have never heard a women called "sheila" in all my life.

4. We like America just fine.

5. Assange is not a national hero and in fact he is as much a hero here as he is in America, we are not dancing on the streets singing his name.

None of this in anyway has anything to do with your countries culture.
Like I said to you before in an older post, both our countries culture are so much alike that I could point out more a hundred things that are the same.

Why is this "news" on the front pages of many Aussie websites? I don't think she deserves that kind of attention. Even the prime minister came out to Federation Sq to greet her? Come on! 10000 + came out to see her? she'd be lucky if she got a few hundreds to do the same Stateside.

I guess you post in Australian Topix but you don't read it. By Simpley reading page number one all your questions will be answered in spades. Unless your implying all these posters are liars, Indians, wogs lebos etc etc etc. I have read it all in here .

Having been Down Under many times I can confirm that what you are saying is true. I haven't met an Aussie I don't like. Australia is a great place to visit and its people are a genuinely friendly bunch. I have no doubt that there are America haters out there but those are probably people who have never set foot in our country, they have only seen "America" through Hollyweird movies and TV programs.

I can't see what all the fuss is about this woman. Mother Theresa she certainly is not! Every one knows that money makes money and a self indulgent lifestyle can lead to weight gain. Is she is here to promote kangaroo as lean and healthy meat:)

It would be an insult to bring Mother Teresa into this. madoff may be more in line except for the legality but greed would fall on the same line.

I’m not implying they are all liars but most are, without a reason of doubt most are nothing but racist losers with nothing better to do then piss down on Australians. You wouldn’t understand anything about Australia or Australians because you have never been here but you feel the need to judge Australians as one all because a few bored teens are running their mouths of, what does that say about you??? It speaks volumes of your character, unfortunately it doesn’t sound like a good one.
I don’t get how you can come here and state all Australians to be racist while been an utter racist yourself. You don’t see me attacking all Canadians because a few on this site are racist.
This site is nothing but a tribute to boredom, racism, lies and the need to be a fuck nut because no one can do anything about it, it has nothing to do with how the people of the countries that have been brought up feel or think, we don’t speak for everyone and I’m quite sure most people look at this site and think to themselves “ what a bunch of retards “ so yes most the Indians, wogs, lebos etc etc etc are liars and the Australians on this site don’t speak for all Australians country wide and the sooner you realise this the better of you will be.

Now you blame all the racist comments in here on a few bored teens.
Other Aussies blame it on wogws,lebos abos etc etc etc. I have yet to see any Aussie in here own up to what they say. I guess the reason is, that it is easy to blame someone else than it is to correct an out of control society.

Oh and by the way I have been to Australia. It's a beautiful country with a huge inferiority complex.

Oprah is here at the expense of Australian taxpayers, who have foot the bill and no other reason. She got so filthy rich by free loading in the first place. I bet her accompanied American audience is rich as well.
Oprah is like the rest of the so called do-good organisations around. Helping themselves at the expense of others' and getting richer for it. Oprah is a cult, religion, fund-raiser, all rolled in one and all are tax exempt.
Just think of it as an extended worldwide tourism advertising campaign, because that's essentially what it is for us - and would be the reason for us funding it.

You have yet to stand up for what you have said so you dont get a say about that, you make it sound like its ok to be a racist yourself while putting others down for been just like you.

I have lived in Australia for all my life i have yet to see any so called inferorrity complex and just for the sake of it please do explain inferiority complex you speak of.

No shit the aussies blame it on the wogs,lebos abos etc etc etc just like the wogs,lebos abos etc etc etc blame it on the aussies.

Its not just the Australians on this site who are racist and its kinnda funny how there are more racist forums about Australians then there are about any other ethnic group.

And how long where you in Australia for mate ??? A week, month or so.

Just read the first page of Australian Topix and you will see the racism. The best ones are Australia should nuke ________ FILL IN THE COUNTRY. Australia does not have nuclear weapons and never has. If this is not a sign of a big inferiority complex, I don't know what is. But then these were not written by aussies, it was a bored teen or a lebo or a wog, sure it was.
