You sound jealous.
I bet your sitting there at the computer now, knees knocking, licking those lips, just wishing you had some of this.
Yeah, I know you are, otherwise you wouldnt had brought it up.
If you're trying to get me to say something bad about gay people, it aint gonna happen, about any race, it aint going to happen, the only thing I hate is muslims, and of course, you.

Well it is pretty hard to believe you are credible if you don't supply your location, so I don't think I will take your word for that, "pansy arse" that is for your mysoginistic remark! Kudos.

Such has been pointed out before, to Jackarse412.
If Australia had the same population as the U.S., it would have a FOUR TIMES greater violent crime rate!
And proven false as all crime statistics must be taken in context as most of those that quote them are often wrong as was that post.

Are you saying that every American has a gun?
A: LOL, there is that good ol' American lack of comprehension, and still on par with my expectations . No fish I am saying there are too many guns in America period, so the cops take their life in their hands everytime they answer a to a call out .....There is no need for them to rush as gun owners are confident that they can handle the perp better than law enforcement anyway as they have their guns..... The Aussie government won't let you people have guns. 99% of you aren't wrapped too tight.They are doing you a favor.
A: That is a lessons Americans are learning the hard way, so clearly puts the Aussies above you in common sense.
Every American has a gun??
A: Do they? How do you get that?
IF you are a woman and would like to find a nice man - you need to come here. Tons of nice men here. Boggles the mind.
A: Well thanks fish, but we like our men to fight to kill and be caring at the same time with a good amount of independent intelligence thrown in, where patriotism isn't brainwashing and they can play footy without 200lbs of protective gear...If you didn't live in your tiny goldfish bowl (called America) you could come over and see for yourself, and once you have met our guys, you would understand why American (so called men) would struggle
to rate, and why Aussie women have it so good.
I could have sworn you said all Americans had guns. I thought that was a silly comment, but since it was coming from you........
Are you married?
If all the Aussie men look like Hugh Jackman (gay) and Russell Crowe, I doubt the American men have anything to worry about. One is ultra fem and the other is a raving lunatic. Real men, eh?
Also, there is crocodile dundee and the guy from the zoo. Interesting blokes.
Who wears 200 lbs of protective gear? A navy seal? Talk about tough dudes. Cream of the crop. Not some guy who dangles his little baby over a huge alligator for laughs. Yeah, a real brainiac.
Better rethink these guys you are bragging about. Come here and see the real deal.

Like I give a shit whether you think I'm credible or not. Why you want to know where I live? I dont went and told you once dumb ass, are you getting senile?
I'll be damn if I repeat myself and tell you again.
I'll tell you a few hints though, my state passed a law that no law enforcement officer has to help the govt confinscate our weapons if it comes to that, it passed a law makeing it illegal for private citizens or newpapers, media, whatever to obtain records of people who carry concealed weapons, my state governor wrote all the gun manufactors from new york to california asking them to relocate here in the most gun freindly state in the union, and theres alot more.
You call me a pansy, is that it, thats your best ''shot'', no pun intended, but if it was, you missed your target by about a mile.
Poor poor ole ahomana, you are one miserable thing arent you, even in your denials and lies it shines threw.
I really do feel sorry for you and pity you, lifes been cruel to you hasnt it, and they God doesnt have a sense of humor, sure he does, you're liveing proof.

Very few people share her views in Australia.
She just seems to think she speaks for all.
