Australia - A nation full of pussies
Ever since the early 90's when Australia became the first country in the world to implement mandatory helmet laws, accompanied by the sky rocketing public liability payouts that are awarded every time Darwin's law comes into play, our once great country has gone soft.
Why is it that children of the last century could be trusted with shanghais & slug guns, to drive themselves to the bus stop & buy enough fireworks to make Beijing jealous, yet the generation before us needs a Xanax to get through a thunderstorm?
When did we as a nation decide that common sense had to be replaced with law, after law, after law? Our freedoms as Australians are encroached upon by politicians every day, why should the majority constantly be punished for the actions of the few idiots.
Maybe if little Johnny & Jane of today had the options that used to be available to in this country, parents wouldn't be struggling to get them away from the screens & outside. Bring back cracker night, guns, lax seatbelt laws & let Australians have a little fun again, at the very least we will be helping with the over population problem.
