    one of my favourite cities is perth.
    they have live jazz in king's park
    on a thursday afternoon. s'wonderful.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    If people here are going to change their minds about Australia, seems to me from reading the other threads that they'd be turning against dear old Oz.

    Who are these bogeymen hating on Australia?
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    We started to change our mind about Oz a while back. We were having a minor currency problem so our Treasurer visited the USA and asked for a small and limited amount of help. The USA told him to get lost. So he returned to Oz knowing that we were now on our own. And so we built our own bullet proof economy. And we are now the only economy in the developed world that has not had a recession for more than 20 years, and we have the highest standard of living in the world, we have low unemployment and our average income is one third higher than the USA, and we distribute our income far more equally than the USA. So as well as non-stop growth we have a first rate welfare system, health and education systems.

    But still the USA has kept us militarily weak. Simply by increasing our military spending and going nuclear, we can defend ourselves against the whole world, including the USA. But the USA has got us to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and promised they will look after us. But it is now apparent that the USA will always look after their own interests first. And it is in their interests to keep us militarily weak.
