    Down from about 9.5 20 years ago. It's a good trend.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    that sounds a little strange, but perhaps that's my emotion kicking up....

    Nope, but in other countries, periods and commas have the opposite meanings when it comes to numbers than they do in the United States.

    Of course I get to vote. I vote in Australian elections.

    And I get a real choice with my vote, quite unlike Americans who get to vote for one Party of business or the other Party of business.

    No wonder so few of you bother to vote because your vote matters so little.

    Mate, if you want to keep your military bases on Australian soil and continue to fly killer robots up into Asia, you might mollify your critics.

    The Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania shocked a whole nation. And we could see ourselves going down the American path. But with immense courage we decided to ban guns across a whole Continent.

    And the proof of the pudding is in the eating - for we have had not one gun massacre since we banned guns in 1996. Yet America continues to have one gun massacre after another gun massacre, and we all know this will continue into the future. Thank God we didn't follow the American path.

    And when our Prime Minister, John Howard, announced our ban on guns to the public, for the first time in Australia's history, he was advised by the Security Service to wear a bullet proof vest, to protect himself against the National Rifle Association and their supporters.

    So we have nothing to thank the Americans for - and they continue to spout the evil propaganda of the National Rifle Association on this international site.
