I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 419 People

    Aussie Psychology.

    In an attempt not to generalise all Australians, I'm going to use the term 'aussie' only for those who identify with being 'true blue', are proudly ignorant and full of social weirdness. There are even foreigners who suck up the redneck culture so easily I'd call them aussie as...

    I have had problems with this country

    since coming here in 1978 which I have kept inside of me for far too long. Now I am letting off steam. It is bloody expensive to live here and if you are on a low income or receiving welfare payments you will struggle. This is no ''Lucky Country'' and would recommend anyone...

    Yes.  This is a terrible country to live in or even travel to for that matter.  Let me say that I never write posts but I feel so strongly about this and was comforted by hearing the stories of other like-minded people.  Australia truly sucks.I'm a Canadian who's been living...

    I have lived in the toilet

    that is Australia for the past year. It's horrible. I'd give anything to go back to the UK. There is an aura of nastiness and selfishness that saturates this country. There are small pockets that I have experienced that are trying to hold out against the nastiness but they are...

    who is from Cyprus. I asked him how this country was when he came to Melbourne in 1951. He told me this country was ''100 years behind.'' Further I asked him how the people were here when he arrived in 1951. He said ''they were like animals.'' That they hated new Australians...

    John Howard, Kevin Rudd

    and Tony Abbott say they are Christians but they serve Satan. They are phoney Christians who work for the illuminati. People here believe anything their leader's say. What hope for this country with such mentality?

    Word Of Advice For Newcomers

    It IS decent of newcomers to Australia, like opiated and deadjellyfish before her, to defend a culture in which they are a visitor, and which they don't understand. I can't fault that. It is the right thing to do... if one is unsure about a people, it is best to default to...
