THE AVERAGE AUSTRALAIN IS VERY GREEDY

By 9 May 2012 46

Every sector of Australian society wants more money from the government but wants no increase in taxation.

Elderly people dont want to sell their house but expect the young people to pay for their care.

People want huge rates of return on their investments quickly without working for it.

Homeowners want their houses to go up in value by huge amounts leaving the young kids not able to buy a house.

I rest my case that Australians are greedy

I think a good dose of austerity is just what Australians need.

Bring on 15% GST, bring back death duties.

PS It disturbs me that you are able to afford access to the Internet.

The average JAGARA:
- shouts in topic titles.
- is unsure of how to spell Australian.
- is unable to progress beyond single sentence paragraphs.
- is unable to use reasonable grammar.
- makes widespread, sweeping generalisations without giving proof of their claims.

76.32% of people agree with that statement.

“Bring on 15% GST,”

All Australians are greedy, and your solution is to punish the poor with a regressive tax.

That makes plenty of sense.

The average Australian also has one testicle and one ovary.

I can almost hear jb’s thought process from here.

“What’s this guff. I can’t publish this…or can I…?”

*hits ‘publish’, pushes chair back from desk*

I’m sure if “JAGARA” stamps his/her tiny little feet hard enough and long enough we’ll all learn the errors of our way, and become a true communist utopia.

Becoming a wealthy nation has given people high expectations. It will take a while for these to deflate. I wouldn’t worry about it, just live your own life the best you can.

We need a good war to toughen the average Australian up.

There’s nothing like a little conscription to adjust some of these yuppies attitudes and we can even start off small by invading New Zealand. You know it makes sense.

I agree with the sentiment the OP has expressed, but wonder about the motive for posting it. Just to have a spray?

Because countries with mountainous terrain are always a push-over.

Yep, I pretty much agree with what he’s saying as well. It just wasn’t said in a way that the majority of the riot-act community like things to be said.

Plus a lot of those greedy Australians frequent these boards so it’s not exactly the ideal place to get support on the issue.

Are ewe saying the Kiwis will put up a fight? We’ll need to have the element of surprise and then Ram home our advantage.

Not sure about them being greedy, but they do like to whinge. A lot.
