This is how real patriots should stand up to idiotic liberals!

I only wish my passport was not expired (June 2,019!) so's I could attend.

I have enclosed a link to a short article that epitomizes how idiotic liberals should be dealt with/put in their places!

Three cheers for the patriots "down under"!

Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie.

I love it.

P.S.: By coincidence I will be picking my nearest neighbor up at the Butte, Montana airport Friday midnight - as he is flying in from Australia after a two month venture there. He has been touring but also owns a home there bordering on a large National Park.
He loves Australia and Australians and returns there every "down under winter" for a few months.I bet he wishes he would still be there for the "barbecue".
I almost forgot that the CampFire has a "Australia" section. I posted this article and my comments on the CampFire's main site previously.

The BBQ will go ahead but not on her place. Maybe someplace nearby but the proceeds will go help our famers who are battling a prolonged drought. This poor deluded woman seems to have a persecution complex and her idiocy has now gone well outside her home State of Western Australia. Despite our gun laws, most Australians have an intense dislike of this sort of crackpot. Thanks very much for your sentiments mate, you guys are always welcome here.
By the way, Australia is roughly the same size as the Continental US, but our population is just 24 million, give or take a few hundred thousand. We seem to possess a pretty good BS detector system.

Time for a burnt offering.

How do you know is someone is a vegan?

Don't worry, they will tell you 4 times in the first 5 minutes you meet them

The BBQ was to be last month, IIRC. Did it happen?


Retired cat herder.

Dear Sir or Madam:
You may be right.

I think vegans are a product of DNA placed in a blender... all mixed up. Be Well, RZ.

Australians are very interesting people. I heard a youtube of the Seekers singing Waltzing Matilda and paid attention to the lyrics. Not knowing Aussie Slang it confused me. I did a search and found several sights with explanations of the lyrics. I had always thought it was a song about some Australian guy singing about dancing with his girlfriend. But the explanation surprised me. This is an Australian outback ballad but you have to know some Australian slang to understand it.

The key slang words are:
a
1) Swagman- a transient worker that goes around looking for work and sleeps where he can. He carries a bed roll called a Swag, hence the name Swagman, with all his possessions rolled up inside. He is dirt poor and lives off doing odd jobs unless he's skilled at something in particular. Waltzing with his matilda a nick name for his swag referres to his walking over the country with his swag over his shoulder.


2)Billibong-a small body of water usually formed when a river changed course and left a portion behind. C

3)Coolibah-Eucaliptis Tree.

4) Billy- a can with a wire handle used to boil stuff, usually tea.

5) Jump Buck-A young male sheep.

6)Tucker Bag- A bag he carries food in.

7) Squatter-Land owner or sheep rancher.

8) Troopers-cops or militia.

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong

Under the shade of a coolibah tree, 

He sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

He sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,

you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong, 

Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,

he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag,

you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag, 

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred, 

Up rode the troopers, one, two, three, 

With the jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.


Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

With the jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?
You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, you scoundrel with me.


Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong, 

You'll never catch me alive, said he, 

And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,

you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.


Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong, 

You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

Oh, you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

When the squatter caught the happless swagman stealing the jumpbuck the swagman knew they would either kill or imprison him so he jumped in the Billibong and drowned.

What a cool song! How cool can people get? I just got to go there sometime.
