Did you know America is number one for overprescibing drugs...and the ammount of kids on medication for ADD and ADHD is a joke....so besides being a nation of fatties you are a nation of drugged up kids because their parents are too busy to control their kids behavior...you are going down the shit tube fast...enjoy the ride. How about you stop spreading your poisons to the rest of the world, because your pharmaceutical companies have not morals...and your people are thick.

What are you smoking?

Oh my gosh! The drug companies have no morals? How did you find out? How many drug companies are there? How many people work for them? Are you saying no one has morals? That's a disgrace.

Why don't you STOP taking our poisons? Maybe you should discover your own totally natural drugs. Yeah, right. Let's see how that works out for you.

You are very insecure when it comes to Americans. Did a American boy or girl dump you at one time? Aw......I can see why.

Kids and drugs? Let's not exaggerate. Some kids take drugs. Didn't you? Or are you making up for lost time now?

Nice chatting with you.

America leading in the field of healing vs killing ....my bet is killing would win....you have people in your country dying of bed sores...how modern can you be? LOL. And give some up to date evidence on what American scientist have achieved lately in the way of mans health...this should be good....
We kill more than we heal? You are off your rocker. You should watch what you say. You sound ignorant.

Bed sores? Have no idea. I've never had them.

They don't focus on men's health. They focus on helping all people. Men, women and children. Wasn't Viagra good enough for ya?

Was it good for you?

Thank you for taking over for us in Afghanistan! Wow. That saves a lot of lives and money. Good job!

I like Gillard. She seems sincere and totally not phony. Smart woman. I hope she wins again.

I dare you! You dare me/what?

Yes, all Americans are inhumane. What is wrong with us?? We really need to get with the program!
Maybe we could copy you? You seem to know everything and you are all just a bunch of saints.

Would it be OK to copy you guys? Please say yes! We'll never make it without yours.

Thank you for your time.

You are a bit of a maniac.

I was watching a show on the History channel named How the States Were Made. Interesting show. On one show they had a bar/tavern situated on a state line, one state being dry and the other wet (alcohol laws). One couldn't bring his drink to the part of the building where the men's room was located as it was in the dry state part of the building.:-)
Now that is funny,,,consume in one state and dump in the other :-)

If you believe that, then YOU should stop talking on Topix, because they pay out on your big time here even when you are right like me most of the time.. and you seem like such a fragile flower, none of us knows if this will push you over the edge, especially from thousands of miles away. Grow up! So it is your responsibility to assess your own sanity and seek help...in your case long overdue.
Do all Austrailians foam at the mouth like you?

Because they pay out on your big time here even when you are right like me most of the time. You are either drinking heavily or smoking something. WTH did that mean?

Fragile flower? I like to think so. And I smell fantastic. I am either a peony or a lilly. They are both lovely. You would be a cactus. Ouch...

Push/edge? What edge are you talking about? No mountains here.

Seek help? Let me know the name of your doctor and I will be sure not to pick him or her because you are a total mess, so I guess he/she isn't very good. How are the vitamins working?

You need to take a few deep breaths and THINK before you write.

I hope you feel better, dear...

Ornery,
Shaking head.
She committed suicide because she was ashamed of what she did. Your people pushed her over the edge. She couldn't deal with it. Maybe she was going to lose her job and be out on the street. No one would hire her because her name would be mud, so to speak.
No, there is nothing you can or could do, but you sound so apathetic and that's not nice.
Feeble minded. That's not nice. I see a pattern here.
Didn't blame ALL Auzzie's, but I think most of you found it to be funny. Fess up.
The actions of a FEW morons? 9,000 deaths are a FEW?
Learn to roll with the punches. I do.
MAYBE SHE WAS GOING TO LOSE HER JOB AND BE OUT ON THE STREET.

Thats highly unlikely,,IF and its a big IF, she had been sacked or suspended then reinstatement would have been quick to follow due to public opinion,,the reports I have read about the woman suggest she was a very nice person but shy and private,,it would appear that the humiliation at being duped was to great for the poor woman. As I said in a previous post, this was a security cock up, allowed to happen by people on a far greater salary than a nurse.
All the blame lies with them.

It is my considered opinion, for what that might be worth, that the one with whom you discuss this matter, tends to arrogate to herself a distinction of which she is not in any way deserving.
To date, she's provided not an iota of evidence to support her contentions.

You may well be right. Giving the matter some further thought, I will say this. It would appear that patient/doctor confidentialety was not observed in this case, the poor woman was placed in an awkward position, either way. She should never have been placed in the position whereby the decision to put the call through was hers alone. Given the supposed identity of the callers,ie worried grand parents and royals to boot, it would have been a difficult decision to make, she may have felt not allowing the call could affect her career,,we shall never know. lousy security, to put it mildly.

Tracyvon,
Their guns were not outdated. A lot of times they were better than what the military had.
You may eat your words now.
Enjoy!
Sorry but facts speak for themselves. The american indian lost almost every battle with the white man because he was not armed properly to defend himself. They didn't make guns or have money to buy guns. They didn't make powder or bullets and didn't have money to buy them. When they begain fighting the white man they had a stick with a rock on it. When they did aquire firearms and ammo the ammo was soon depleted making the gun useless. The american indian outnumbered the white man at over a thousand to one in the beginning so the FACT they could not defend themselves properly was the reason they were almost annihilated. History has shown over and over those who don't have the ability to defend themselves eventually are enslaved or slaughtered by the more powerful. Now do you want to show the american indian driving the severely out numbered white man off their land and back to europe with their better guns or do you want ketchup and salt with your statement?

And it is a crime rate dominated by men.... so therefore there should be a perfectly simple answer to controlling the violence, hate, rape and murder...re_educate the scum, and if they fail to be educated...get rid of them.
So women don't commit crimes? No queen has ever slaughtered her own people (do your research before you answer)? Siegfried & Roy "re_educated lions and tigers but we know how that turned out. You can train an animal but you just can't remove it's nature. Most females in nature are subservient to the male and it is natures role that the male be dominant over the female. Males have made the vast majority of advances in human civilization so just were would the female be without us? I see you have a Hitler complex (get rid of those who don't conform to your way of thinking).
