    What a strange thing to say - no law(s) can do that?

    Pleased to meet you, Sheila...um, er Violet! ;)

    Pull up a wallabie, or whatever it is that you sit on dununda, and have coca koala while you enjoy the pissing...,er passing parade of American polidicks.

    Things over here could do with a dose of reality but if you hear a giant flushing sound heading your way it means that our Toddler-in-Chief tweeted another #2 in your direction. Just treat it the way you would any other drongo turd in your path and ignore it.

    Glad to have you aboard the USS Political Forum. The crew are nice and polite and the majority of the passengers are sane and normal.

    correction, please ~ only deluded right wing Americans feel that way

    By contrast, we patriots who love the USA and seek peaceful relations among the nations are in full accord with those norms and rules.

    I don't but I have met and worked with Aussies during my career. Most of them are good people with a great sense of humor.

    They are all criminals.. You have to have a criminal record to get into Oz

    It has been that way since the 1700's

    I have a great friend from Oz here in the states.. Somehow the border agents let him in

    Just out of curiosity why do you and so many other Australians care so much about American politics? I know nothing about your country except that we saved you from Japanese invasion in WW2 and really don't care what you guys do down under. Why this obsession with us?

    It might have to do with WW ll.

    When I was in-country I earned a R&R outside of Vietnam and one of the choices was spending five days or so in Australia.

    That was my choice but my 1st Sergeant said no way, R&R is "Rest and Recreation" and you would spend more time fighting in the bars of Australia.
    The whole purpose of a R7R was to get you away from all of the fighting.

    That back in 1969 Australian men were still pissed off that when they were fighting the Nazis while American soldiers, sailors and Marines were screwing all of the Australian women.

    Aussies back when Austrailia was still great loved to fistacuff so much that inside the bars there were jail like bars separating the bar tenders from the patrons and all of the tables and chairs were bolted to the ground.

    Ended up taking my R&R in Thailand. Should have just taken it at China Beach.

    We are interested in US politics because this looks like the end of Pax Americana.
    The world is in flux and who knows what will happen as a result.

    If you want to use the past as an example, perhaps you should talk to an american marine or three who would prefer to fight alongside aussies more than any other nationality...
    But I digress...perhaps this song illustrates the America of today......

    And you fear Trump will do this? On what basis is this fear founded?

    Didn't notice any war with NK. Did I miss something? All I saw was NK forced to stop it's threats of war, it's bomb and missle test and it's provocative missle flights over our allies territories.
