Subject:Don't hit kids - seriously, they have guns now.
Time:09:20 am
Current Mood:blahblah
I've just recently been discovering that my viewpoint on a whole bunch of things is radically different to most everyone else posting in some communities of mine. It's a bit disconcerting. And I'm now wondering whether that comes down to my age, my (admittedly) slightly sheltered view of the world, or coming from Australia.

You said something about your age so I went to your profile...
AND WE HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY. Year and all.

No matter what, that makes you awesome.

How different and we can test the sheltered Australian feeling :)

Having outdoor-only cats, which just freaks me out with the idea of them killing wildlife.

And crating dogs, which just sounds freaky. Before joining dog_lovers I'd never even heard of the practice of locking your dogs in a box overnight or during the day. Maybe I'm just too used to everyone I know having backyards.

I agree with you with the cats, mine lives indoor only.
I agree completley with the crating of dogs, it seems like a horrible thing to do. I know someone who used to crate the cat, but he used to destroy the house and pee on the TV, so I understood that when it was explained.
Do you get bored with the American penchant for long winded political debates? I do.

I find it really interesting that the majority of the Aussies I know aren't fussed on politics at all. Then again, it could be because the latest election was a choice between Dude 1, and a copy of Dude 1 without WorkChoices.

And yet one mention of politics around USA-ians brings either fawning of Obama, who does seem like a decent guy, or whimpering that the government's taking them to the End of Days.

I think its because we Aussies know there are more important things. As long as we are not all plunged into WW3, sold to china for slave labour or sent broke its all ok.
I am always amazed at the USA, Canadian and English who start the "omg your a: left wing / right wing / socialist / communist pig and I cannot talk to you anymore" I am always left feeling that people are still people who like butter on their toast, pepperoni pizzas and kittens - who cares how they would rule the world.
