3. Should send that picture to the conservative Georgia woman that claimed Australia

was a conservative heaven replete with a male, god fearing leader.

"We'll save Australia."

A blast from the past (1972):


Maybe Australia will save us.

They have Footie, too:


Great country. Great continent.

8. One thing forgotten in that letter on why Australia is able to do that

 

We are not the policemen of the world



And that is why the U.S.A will never be able to do it.

9. well my son lived in Australia for a year.

First, everything is very expensive--in Sydney anyway. Housing, food, transportation, you name it. Everything costs something: you have to pay a fee for things that are free here, like a frequent flier account for an airline, a phone number, or a credit card--things like that. He had a mandatory deduction (large) from his paycheck which is a forced retirement savings, which he had to apply to get refunded when he left the country. It isn't all roses.
