Explain then why Kevin Rudd was fired for? Any nation where it's leaders could be fired without one public debate or quorom is not one I consider truly free.


Australia elects a party, not a single leader..
The party decides who the leader is and can change at any time..

IMO a better scenario to that of the US where you are stuck with the same president regardless of public opinion of him..


The Crown, TPTB choose your leader as the parties are puppets of them. This is how Monarchies are ran.

Again you show your ignorance, The "crown" has no say at all in the running of Australia, nor in choosing their leaders.

Krudd was sacked by his own party as he was useless.

Rudd saw Australia as it's own entity and TPTB couldn't have that so they cooked up something to get him fired.

I can't say when or where I learned of this but do trust it is real.

Besides, this thread is about Obama and not The Crown as I can say with the uttmost and total confidence unequivicolly that The United States Of America now answers to her people and no other monarch, banking insitution or foreign individuals unless authourized and pre-approved by The Office Of The President Of The United States.

I suggest you get some facts mate..
No one that ever worked with Rudd liked him...

He was not fired either..
He is still in the party..
In fact he is the current Foreign Affairs Minister..

Maybe with your high IQ you should try to separate fact from fiction..

I feel this is straw grasping. I always refer to my birthplace as "where I grew up". Rarely do I go as far as "born and raised [city]".

Edit: Wow
ten pages on this topic alone for wording?

"Born and raised" is a very common phrase to describe your upbringings. Of course Obummer didn't say that particular phrase because it doesn't apply.


I hail from Singapore.

Obama being educated understands there are many ways to express an idea. English is a rich language. You should take a course in it sometime.

Is this what a conversation might be like with you?
Me - Do you live in (hypothetical) Chicago?
You - Yea I grew up there.
Me - So where were you born?
You - Chicago! God you're a dumbass, I just said it!
Me - No, you said you grew up there, not that you were born there. You could have been born in Russia like my friend but moved and grown up in Illinois, where he doesn't remember any of Russia. Like how Obama was born in Kenya and grew up in Hawai'i? Dick.


Try being realistic here.
Me - Why would you say you are familiar with Japanese culture?
Obama - Because I was born in Hawaii.
me - Born there? What does that have to do with anything?
Obama - Well, I grew up there around Japanese culture.
Me- Then why didn't you just say you grew up there? Being born there tells me nothing about why you would relate to a certain culture.
Obama - Oh, well I grew up there and that is when and how I became familiar with Japanese culture.
You - See, he is backpeddling on where he was born.

I see 4 so emotionally involved it's like they are employed to do it..
But that's just IMO..


That is odd considering the number of posts put into this by you alone compared to those 4 people. Imagine how I might see it for a moment.
My only emotional investment is with the truth. This whole birther thing is one of the biggest piles of crap I have ever seen spend so much time in the sun without vanishing and that intrigues me. To see people from Australia spend so much time and effort in repeating old lies really tickles me but emotionally invested? Well, I guess you can think whatever you want. Even if it sounds silly.

BS, some call Australia the 51st state..

Some would be wrong. There are only 50.

But the argument that Obama said he grew up in Hawaii instead of being born there to explain time he spent growing up coupled with this idea that Australia is the 51st state has to be some of the best birther stuff yet. You have to wonder why anyone would take so much time to spread so much nonsense about a country that is not even their own, don't you?

Don't know about others, but I was born in Ohio, but basically grew up in Iowa.

And that's exactly what I say if either state comes up in conversation.

I always say I grew up in Iowa, but I never say I was born there. Likewise for Ohio, I say I was born there, but I never say I grew up there.

Just saying ...


I thought you were born in Rome?

Also, based on a past life regression, consider myself a reincarnated Roman soldier.

Salvate!


As far as what the POTUS said...."I grew up in Hawaii"....WTF is wrong with birthers where they read something crazy into it?

Let's take a look back...

""I didn't grow up in the ocean -- as a matter of fact -- near the ocean -- I grew up in the desert. Therefore, it was a pleasant contrast to see the ocean. And I particularly like it when I'm fishing." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Sept. 26, 2008

So does this mean GWB was born in ...I don't know...Somalia? We can just make crap up right?

Notice how he did not say he was not born in the ocean. Something to think about. Perhaps his allegiance is to Neptune.

as a matter of fact -- near the ocean -- I grew up in the desert.

As a matter of fact indeed. He says he grew up in the desert but not BORN in the desert, only further confirming he was born in the ocean.

Therefore, it was a pleasant contrast to see the ocean.
So he had not seen the ocean since he was born in it, obviously.

And I particularly like it when I'm fishing."

Clearly trying to word this in such a way as to sound like a complete idiot as part of that ruse. Overcompensating for what would be clear evidence of an Atlantean brain at work.

--George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Sept. 26, 2008


It's like Jazz. It is all about crap you dont hear, read, see, or are able to confirm, back up, or sometimes even say in person with a straight face.

Brilliant! No amount of education or debate will change the OP's mind. Delusions die hard, after all.
