I like the guy who is not only moving australia, but already knows the university he is going to attend.

Haha come on over you bastards.


Well this is just bonkers. I now that most of these people are just using this as a figure of speech, but even if they weren't, do they really think things are so different in Australia? Have they ever been there? Do they think they can just move some place without any hassle? Are they willing to leave all of their family and friends behind? Don't be stupid. Just because Australia has kangaroos and koalas doesn't mean things are better. Also interesting to note they'd be moving to a former penal colony.

Karl Rove's meltdown last night was the best thing I've seen on TV in quite awhile.


I thought that was amazing. You could see the smoke coming out of Megan Kelly's ears while she tried to figure out what to do. I liked when the foxnews number guy came on and debated Rove--it was so awkward for everyone to sort of let Rove know that it was over. Probably my favorite election moment from TV yesterday.

So glad I was wrong about this election. I thought for sure this asshole of a country was going to elect Romney. Glad to be wrong.

Of course I do, hence the use of former. I just think there's a certain amount of irony in people fleeing the USA for what amounts to a one-time continental prison camp. Nothing against Australia, but why not move to one of the Scandinavian countries. Their governmental model seems to be the most efficient. Then again, maybe that's too socialist for those people. Don't worry, I'm not insulting your home. Australia seems like a great place to be and I hope to visit some day

It's not about going somewhere where things will be better, it's about depriving the Obama Empire of their labor. Going Galt, if you will... in an English-speaking region of the world.

According to Yahoo news Karl Rove's meltdown was due to him helping flush $300 mill down the toilet... which is funny.

These guys are definitely bat shit crazy, ignorant and most likely racist. I can see how this can be amusing at a glance but if you really analize the situation it is quite sad and scary. I think it's best to ignore such people.

Laughter can be very empowering, it can bring people together but it can also be violent and separate us all even more.

My 2 cents. :)

It's ok. When you get here we can box, & then drink, & then box again. It's a time honoured tradition. You'll love it.
