True, but I think we are losing the battle over guns.
I was kidding when I said I was apathetic.
Nothing worth winning is easy else everyone would do it, the battle of the guns has just begun, don't be so easily discouraged.

<quoted text>Some americans are fat, I agree. I have seen a few fat aussies too, as well as any other nationality. What/how does americans being fat effect you? It doesnt. Our gun laws do not effect you in the least, and you're a liar if you say it does.
B4 you goggle it, do you even know why the 2nd admendment was made in the first place? Now, go google it and get back at me.
Yeah, we yanks are really dumb arent we. We're so dumb we did in 200 years what the rest of the world has been trying to do for thousands. I wont go and list all the good accomplishments the 'dumb' yanks have made, it'll take too much time. But even a fool like you knows the truth wheter you'd admit it or not.
And what makes you think the yanks give a rats ass as to what YOU think? You overestimate yourself, you act as if YOU'RE important. You're a nobody just like the rest of us, a voice among millions, thats all.
And dumbass, all yanks arent fat.
I have been working out since I was 12, I'm now 23. I'm six foot five inces tall, 235 pounds with 7% body fat, can you lady, say that?
I think not, you hiprocrite.
I haven't decided whether you are being deliberately obtuse or you really are that stupid. Reading my post correctly would have anwered these questions, yet here you are asking the same ones? I am opting for the latter.

In respect of obesity, here in Australia we have the same problem as most of the developed 'western' countries - much is being done to raise public awareness, as I'm sure is also the case in America.
And a good deal of that is as Sid states and America has brought the problems that have made their country obese to ours....ie Macca's, soft drink, etc. my argument is not for or against fat people it is against America dumping their shite on us when it has caused them so many problems. In Australia at least they have forced these companies to list the content so that people can see it and forced the fast food companies to introduce a healthier option....that does not exist in America....so we don't want the problems that they can't solve dumped in our laps.

Oh I've read your post correctly, if it looks like shit, smells like shit, and (in your post)worthless as shit, then its probably SHIT!

I'll be damn! Now this lesbo is saying america is the reason some aussies are fat! Hey lesbo, why dont you blame the yanks for the metorite that exploded over russia, you know you want to, you just havent figured out a way, espically since the whole world knows the truth.
Hey, we're the cause of global warming too. Never mind your freinds the chinese who has the worst air on earth, and the worst polluted rivers and lakes on earth, but hey, what the hell, they aint americans so its okay.
you have got to be single, alone, and miserable. No decent man would have someone like you, thats a fact, and with good reason.
No need to comeback and tell me you wouldnt have a man, truth is, no man in his right mind would have you.
Again you show your ignorance, yes, in america on every soda bottle/can, on every food box, package, meat package, etc, ever calorie is written, every ingredient,fat content, cholestrol, everything. And yes, our fast food joints have healthier choices, or at least, most of them do.
And I still stand by my statements I made today and few weeks ago, you have never, and do not, critize any country but the usa. At first that kinda pissed me off, now I take it with pride. Heres why?
If america pisses a commie like you off, then its gotta be doing something right!

You really are cruel.
Go north to Georgia, go left and then go south? Sounds like a really scary place. I'll pass.
You do hide your location. Why?
Yes, My mama dun have a house in the north too. I live in her basement in that house too. My mama lives here and I do live in her basement. Knotty pine on the walls. Just beautiful. I feel lucky. No, don't have a job because mama pays for everything. She doesn't want me to work. She says I am too fragile. She's sweet.
There are no harder workers than southerners? If you move in slow motion, how can you get anything done? The Yankee way is the right way. The southern way is backwards/slow.
Talking out of my what? Do you eat with that mouth? My mama would wash your mouth out with bleach for talking like that.
Do you type slow too? a b c d e f g h i j etc.
If you don't work and are just sponging off "Mom", how the hell would your lazy ass know which way is the right way, you pathetic mooch??
