    Truly a sad occasion for us all.

    Your song, with your writing and your singing? No. Posting it would probably be the least weird thing about it.

    Nah, it's a parody song - see if you can guess the original! I'm no Weird Al, but there it goes...

    Americans hate us because they killed massive numbers of their own people, while we did exactly the same as Americans but without killing any of our own people.

    As a furphy the American haters bring up Australian aborigines, but they do so without having read their own Jared Diamond's book, "Guns, Germs and Steel"; or without having read our very own Keith Windschuttle's three volumes, "The Fabrication of Aboriginal History"; or without having read the comparative history of the Americas and Australia by Claudio Veliz.

    But the sadest thing is the self hating Australians who are under the influence of the low, ignorant, popular culture of America.

    And as I write the Americans are preparing to use Australia once again to attack our neighbours to our north.

    China has sovereignity over the low islands in the South China sea, but they are chock-a-block full of oil and gas. So the Americans have already built stealth tri-marans loaded with leathal weapons and the latest high tech electronics, to challenge the sovereignity of China.

    And Australia is to be the base for America's next war in the South China Sea. And we will have the American military on our streets, none of whom can be brought before our Criminal Courts if they commit crimes against Australians. Just as the American military can't be brought before the International Court of Justice for war crimes.

    The last time the American miliary were on our streets our artists painted them and some of these paintings hang in our National Gallery, and they show the ugly American, bordering on evil, on our streets.

    Australian aborigines denied full citizenship -

    http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/4344704.html

    "It is shocking to learn that the non-registration of Aboriginal births remains so prevalent in a wealthy country like Australia, writes Dr Paula Gerber.

    When did we stop denying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples Australian citizenship? Most of you probably think the answer is 1967, following the referendum to amend the constitution.

    However, the fact is that in 2012, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples still struggle to enjoy full citizenship in Australia. This is because of problems they experience accessing a birth certificate - the document universally recognised as being the key to accessing citizenship rights. Not having a birth certificate is the equivalent of being legally invisible."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Australia
    "A First Fleet of British ships arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788[5] to establish a penal colony. In the century that followed, the British established other colonies on the continent, and European explorers ventured into its interior. Indigenous Australians were greatly weakened and their numbers diminished by introduced diseases and conflict with the colonists during this period."

    "More recent research by Craig Mear, Michael Bennett, and Christopher Warren) indicates that, despite controversy, it is highly likely that the 1789 outbreak of smallpox was a deliberate act by British marines when they ran out of ammunition and needed to expand the settlement out to Parramatta."

    It's extraordinary, on site called Typology Central most members have no interest in the study of types, let alone archetypes. Their interest lies in narcissism and insults.

    Why is this?

    ^Copy and paste.

    Because, as Viridian said, you portray theories as facts.

    As a Brit I don't hate you. Why should I, when we gave you much of your culture? lol..

    I like many aspects of your culture/society, though you are maybe too racist. And you should become a republic.

    What are you on about Mole? Are you seriously stating that there is a national beef between Australia and US, because you had an argument on MBTI forum with an American? Who are these "American haters"? Now I haven't read the argument itself, but I doubt there was anyone high lighting background and accusing either nation of being collectively responsible for anything. Which planet are you living on son?

    Your ramblings and rants, make as much sense as packets of peanuts at a weight-loss convention.
