It's neither city, nor rural, thus pretty much suburbia, which as we know about suburbia, is well...it's # and full of people that know nor care about
much to be honest. Except for eat fast foot and take their dog for a run every morning to keep fit. Oversized homes, 3 cars, no backyard and the
Last good PM?
Probably before my lifetime to be honest. Was born in 81, so all i know of is Hawk and onwards.
I understand Howard was a racist mother - but i preferred his fighting spirit over this crap factor of today. Nobody might not have liked his
policies, but least he had some, unlike today where its BS.
But ignorance is bliss, and I’m far from such.
I think what i fear the most from Australia is the young kids, the new generation. I really, REALLY feel like they are so retarded. The don't
question, all they care about is materialistic junk, the have no respect for history/past, no the present and the consequences for their actions. Not
all, but so many.
I look at young kids and i see a product from a nation that likes to dumb down. They are our future and it scares the crap out of me.
I've got an almost 17 year old who had to phone home because she got kicked out of an over 18 concert and i she didn't know how to get home (FFS!!!)
so i told her to go at the closest intersection and give me the names of the roads.....she’s like....what is an intersection.
Ah ok, I've never been to Wollongong, I'm in South/Port Melbourne which is similar sh*t man, but we have the yuppy, obnoxious, self proclaimed
bourgeoisie with 2 BMW's and a $750,000--> property combined with blocks of public housing and a few towers- it is an absolute melting pot. As for me
though, I'm tucked away in a modest house in an alleyway
I was born in 88, so you've got a few years on me.
I COMPLETELY agree about the youth of today- my little brothers approaching 18, he's a good kid with a good heart but he doesn't know of too much
happening outside of his bubble as much as I try to lead him down the right path.
As for other kids, their brain is MUSH, Facebook is reality (God I hate that sh*t) and the only people worth taking note of are on TV or the
radio...IF MY HEAD WASN'T SHAVED I'D OF PULLED MY HAIR OUT!
There is no social awareness and they may as well have an Australian Citizen ID number tattooed on their wrist.
Myself and my mrs live with my best mate and his and the girls are good friends. My mates girlfriends 17 year old sister stayed a few days over the
weekend and if she is any example to go by, we are farrrrrrrrrrrrrked when these kids become legal adults- they have no idea about the world outside
of Australia (bar America) and couldn't care less.
Worrying days ahead if these kids don't wake up.
EDIT: Completely agree about kids, internet smart phones and fast food. When I was that age I was putting posters up around my school questioning the
9/11 attacks and defending the image of Muslims against the MSM onslaught!
The only place I've experienced that type of community vibe is Tasmania when I visited in Easter- awesome place well worth the trip down.
