Agreed, but I'm not sure how often you come into the "big smoke" of Sydney and Melbourne, people wear their wealth in public.
Admittedly the Asians (Chinese and Indians) make a bit of meal of it. Don't blame people for getting irritated seeing a 17yr old Chinese-Australian student driving a $150,000 BMW with a drivers licence purchased over the internet or a 12 yr old Indian kid sitting in a train listening to his ipod, doing his homework on a Apple laptop with his right hand and texting his school buddies on his i-phone with his left.
I don't think that's irritation. It's jealousy.

The jobs that they create and the taxes they pay are enough charity. The taxes that help fund the dole bludgers

Jobs are rarely created because employers feel charitable; this is a one-sided fallacy that corporate whores and politicians enjoy pushing as it is a clever guilt trip to play on the naive. Jobs are created so employers can make money. The relationship between employer and employee is a mutual one.

Many wealthier people use trusts and other tax-minimalisation schemes that aren't available to the less wealthy. They may also enjoy greater influence with authorities who are supposed to treat everybody equally and fairly, and they usually have a better advantage legally being buffeted from hardship caused by fines, legal costs and costly governmental requirements. Not a whinge against wealth, the whinge is directed towards bullcrap artists in government and their apologists who perpetuate stupid myths about the equality of everybody.

Hard-working, lower-paid workers have to prop up dole bludgers too, and they are also the ones who have to deal with the dole bludgers crap and low-life antics in their own neighbourhoods.

Not really. I think the average Australian doesn't want to be a techno-nerd (even thought the BMW and CBD condominium payed for by daddy would be nice) obsessed with trying to please their parents living a sober life on the straight and narrow.

Somebody earlier touched on a point that answered alot of the mysteries on what makes Australian values different.
1. The average Asian/Indian very rarely donates to Australian charities
2. Asian and muslim kids very rarely do an activity for a good time rather there has to be some economic or strategic reason for it.
3. Asian kids only buy designer labels and mock fellow Asians if spotted in target or K-mart.
4. Nobody sees Asians or muslim backpackers? Aussies like to experience things in a authentic flavour even if it means roughing it out. Asians in particular will only stay in a 5 star hotel.

The upshot of this is Asians rarely seem/appear (I could be proven wrong?) contribute back to the Australian charities and community groups and very rarely let their hair down and go a bit wild on Friday nights.

I don't think this makes them less desirable as citizens - it may indicate that feeling (in general) socially excluded by the majority may make them less inclined to give back. They tend to be absorbed on self gratification and self promotion - perhaps they don't see they have a stake in the general community. Something to consider.

We are also today Australia's sixth largest export destination - one day, it's going to be second or third. Without all the coal and iron ore and uranium that you sell, who is going to pay your household bills? Don't bite the hand that feeds your mouth.
I just heard the Indian billionaire couple Oswals are spending like $70 million to build a mansion in Australia. That's a lot of money to waste on ungrateful people like you.
You just heard the ***Indian billionaire couple Oswals are spending $70 million to build a mansion in Australia.

The Oswals know Australia is a good country and leaving the shit hole of India.

And being berated by Mr. Superficiality for being discriminating is quite amusing but also only to be expected.
Don't be deluded - you don't own this forum. Nobody owns the Internet. I'll write whatever I want wherever I like. If you don't like something I say here, you have a right not to respond to it.

But, no! You like to get provoked easily because there is plenty of time for you to waste.

It's the alcohol speaking, not you. Go and take your medications. Or, join some anger management course.

Why can't you answer a simple question "Why do the Indian billionare couple the Oswals want to build a mansion in Australia and not India?" I think it would be obvious India the shit hole is not good enough to live in it's third world no benefits for its citizens you can't progress if you have any talent and all the rest of it that I keep hearing about.

I don't recall ever telling you not to write what you want, or of owning the forum. Find the posts which say I did.

This is Topix; if people don't like what we both say here, they'll exercise their right TO respond to it and there's little we can do to stop it, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

It'd be pretty boring otherwise, if everybody here bleated in agreeance on the same point of view on some over-moderated site. There'd be no point trying to debate anything.

I'm not as easily provoked and I don't have as much time to waste as you'd probably like to think, but in any case that's my own business.

You're the one who should join some an anger management course alternatively you should see a psychiatrist because you are envious of the whites who are superior to you. The reason you cannot answer the simple question why did the Oswals a bbillionare couple spend $70 million to buid a house in Australia is it because India is full of rats, mice and shit?
