Americans are good at killing each other with guns. US politicians are good at making it easy for them to do so. The American gun industry is good at not expressing criticism of this process.

The ability to express yourself by quickly shooting people you think you don’t like is somewhat of a flaw in the American culture. And it seems as though the American gun lobby turns a blind eye to the shocking consequences of this culture. Even a recent US president (George W Bush) felt that there was no need to say more about the 2007 murder of over 30 people at the Virginia Technical University, than ‘They were in the wrong place at the wrong time’.

That’s the trouble about the armed citizenry philosophy of the US: it comes to pass that there so many innocent people who are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

And the story has no end: just tragedy after tragedy. The sheer unfairness of this life and death game is a sickening pockmark on the entire American culture.

Sex indoctrination of children in Australia:“heterosexuality not the norm”
Children to be taught ‘heterosexuality not the norm’ in Australian schools project
by Hilary White, www.lifesitenews.com | October 18, 2012
“…Australian school children are to be told that heterosexuality is not the norm, according to a new education department pilot program called “Proud Schools.”…
“…The committee suggested that teachers must monitor the playground in order to stamp out “heterosexist” language among children in out-of-class hours…”
Well that's what happens when you have an Atheist for a Prime Minister and a Labour Party full of raving poofs and lessos, aligned with a Greens Party, in which it seems it's compulsory to be one or the other.

In 5 years they've done way more damage than the above though.

They'll all be voted out next year... but not before they do a whole heap more damage I'm sure.

Actually it is true.. apparently the vietcong could smell the yanks 10 miles away.

The yanks seem to have woken up to this and now prefer to bomb from afar cause their troops suck..

Lets look at Afgahnistan, who do the Yanks turn to if they want real soldiers? not their Seals or GI Joes, but the Aussie SAS

AUSTRALIAN MSM IGNORE horrendous Australian child sexual abuse - 4.4 million Australian adults have been sexually abused as children
Australian Mainstream media (MSM) resolutely ignore horrendous Australian realities, not least of which is horrendous Australian child sexual abuse - a total of 4.4 million Australian adults today out of a national population of 23 million have been sexually abused as children. The Australian Government has announced a Royal Commission into institutional child sexual abuse in Australia but the Government and Australian Mainstream media (MSM) ignore the horrible reality that expert scholarly research indicates that 3.0 million Australian women, 1.4 million Australian men and a total of 4.4 million Australian adults today out of a national population of 23 million have been sexually abused as children.
The Australian Government has called for submissions re the terms of reference of the Royal Commission - below is my submission that concludes with this
RECOMMENDATION: THE ROYAL COMMISSION SHOULD CONSIDER ALL OF THE 4.4 MILLION AUSTRALIAN CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE VICTIMS.
SUBMISSION BY DR GIDEON POLYA RE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF PROPOSED ROYAL COMMISSION INTO CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IN AUSTRALIA (SUBMITTED 9.17 AM, MONDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2012)
The Australian Labor Federal Government has announced an urgently required Royal Commission into child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, other churches and other institutions. However while Mainstream media and politicians are concerned with victims of child sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and religious personnel that total 3,000 to 40,000 over the last 80 years, expert scholarly research indicates that 3.0 million Australian women, 1.4 million Australian men and a total of 4.4 million Australian adults today out of a national population of 23 million have been sexually abused as children.
what a load of tripe.. do you really want me to go and dig through the US stats?

Poor guy. Just has been so soundly on the gunnut massacres and the lunacy of trivial consumer orientated rapid firearm sales to the general populace that he is resorting to the time homoured NRA passtime of diversion.

You killed those kids as surely as if you pulled the trigger.
You gunnuts have had it your way with your BS about assault weapons and easy access and have failed.

Good, because you might find something we don't know about yet, which gives us more ammo to shoot at the government... but there's not too much we don't know about already - because certain media individuals just love to make public all the gov's dirty little secrets and exposing them to the public... and we've got spies everywhere bub.

But you're wasting your time with the racist rants because we've heard all that repetitious BS before... and we honestly don't care. Spread the word, because that might slow down the worlds scum from invading our country and leeching off our welfare system.

And as for calling us "convicts"... lol ... we love that!

Only slightly off-topic and one I'm sure you've used against Aussies before. But you know there are inventions by Australians that have contributed to the world in fantastic ways. You know, maybe some victims of 9/11 ended up receiving spray-n-skin, which was invented by an Australian woman.

The black box flight recorders they would have searched for that day? Yep, invented by an Australian.

Tanks used in your wars? Thought of by an Aussie.

Notes were probably taken on notepads; it took an Aussie to think of glueing sheets of paper together.

Know anyone with a pacemaker? You're welcome.

Seen your baby in an ultrasound? You're welcome again.

The list goes on and on and on ... stick to the topic.

From interviews with former soldiers and one of the taskforce's senior intelligence officers, Time can reveal how US commanders underestimated - and underutilized - the SAS's core ability to go deep behind enemy lines and gather key intelligence. The soldiers say US commanders lost key opportunities to take out senior al-Qaeda leaders by forcing the SAS to occupy mere "blocking" duties during one key battle. However the US perceptions were ultimately reversed after the SAS mounted an extraordinary mission to locate and coordinate an attack on one of al-Qaeda most senior leaders. The target was either Osama Bin Laden's number two, Ayman Al-Zawahari, or a senior Uzbek commander, Tor Yuldashev.

"The Americans couldn't comprehend we would have the ability to go into areas for protracted times to do our strategic roles,'' "They were body-builder types, full of steroids, some of them,'' says one SAS Afghan veteran. "They could only manage a couple of days. We could go for weeks at a time.''

Yeah Yeah Yeah .. it really sounds like you and your fellow kangroo humpers in this forum were some of those child rape victims. That would explain all your misplaced anger toward the US and your delusions regarding your SH1THole country and citizens.

Your finger pointing is just another symptom of the abuse that you suffered. You should be pitied but somehow I feel you most likely deserved it.
