    I am American, my wife and all my children are Australian citizens. I know a little about your country and the vast cultural, geographic, and political differences between the U.S. and Australia. To those criticize us about gun control saying they “don’t understand…” I say it’s true you really don’t. I don’t have much room in this reply so I’ll keep it short and abbreviated. Populations – US 320 million, Australia 23 million (compared to the population of Southern California’s 22.6 million). Australia is surrounded by water, US has 2,000 miles of open border along a country with a shadow government of violent, gun-running drug cartels. Drugs, weapons, and people cross into the US without difficulty. There are large areas in Arizona along the border where the government posted signs warning that they’re too dangerous to enter. For different reasons both our political parties encourage an open border even though a majority of our citizens want them closed to guns and drugs, and to all but legal immigrants. If you read much about the current political climate in the US you will see the huge discontent with all career politicians because they’re lap dogs beholden to big money and minority ideologies . Many cities like San Francisco are “sanctuaries” where illegal immigrant criminals are protected. The latest mass shooter was “vetted” by the US government and given a green card. The 911 terrorists got visas delivered months after they were dead. Chicago has the most gun homicides of any city in the US, yet it has the strictest gun controls. You tell me how gun control laws will keep guns away from anyone who wants to commit murder, mass or otherwise. Tell me why so many of the elite in countries with strict gun controls have body guards and tall electronic fences around their homes. A home invader in the US may be shot legally, but I imagine you don’t read of the huge number of incidents where lives are saved by guns either from home invaders or random shooters. I’ll bet you never heard what one home invader did when the homeowner arrived unexpectedly: afraid he would be shot he locked himself in the bathroom and called the emergency (911) to rescue him. I’ll bet you never read about the 13 year old girl, a competition shotgun winner ,who blasted 2 men after they broke down the front door and rushed up the stairs toward her. In Britain the home owner is convicted if he harms a home invader. What happens to a citizen of Australia who resists? Is he expected to die as a martyr to gun control? Personally I don’t see how it matters whether to the victim if he’s killed in an individual or mass shooting (or stabbing or senseless beating). I live in the country outside Spokane Washington where a high percentage of us have permits to carry concealed hand guns. Australians don’t have the luxury of that disincentive. I visit Australia regularly, and frankly I feel much safer where I live in the US than I do at the Gold Coast where vicious beatings, stabbings, and both up-close-and-personal and drive-by shootings are increasingly common. I spend a lot of time walking the pristine beach at Yaroomba, yet I worry about walking in the early morning or at night. I remain acutely aware that not long ago a gang beat a neighbor senseless when he complained about their drinking and loud noise. Never had that happened anywhere near where I live – or lived in Los Angeles County. You should read The Australian Crime Commission 2012 report that revealed there are at least 250,000 long-arms and 10,000 illicit handguns in Australia; and I quote. “A black market firearm will almost certainly be obtained to assist in the commission of a crime.” So, be as smug as you like, but watch your back.

    Hi my name Is Jeff McCullough. I channel Hunter S. Thompson, Gore Vidal, Leon Uris, and the great Wallace himself. You know me best as the author of Two-Handed Tennis–How to Play a Winners Game. I am the world’s top authority on this subject matter. And I have copyrights on eight other books, and am a regular contributor to tennisplayer.net–one of the top tennis websites in the world.

    I am also a “tennis stalker,” and channel famous tennis players, both dead and alive. As a tennis satirist I am loathed by the more sanctimonious subscribers at TP who look at me as a cross between the anti-Christ and Donald Trump.

    Politics is actually my game now. And as a member of Arizonans for Trump a.k.a. The Great White Hope–I am a known Trump operative and shill. Our group recently held a Rave up in the fascist stronghold o Globe, Az. It was broken up by ICE Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the most ineffectual and corrupt bureacracy in the federal government. And that’s saying a lot–because U.S. government workers are as good at stealing “We the People’s” money.

    I am an astute observer of the most interesting election on the planet since…well maybe 1896. Or…? You need me to become your next great blogger. I will make your readers laugh their efen asses off.

    My email is infogloballtennis@yahoo.com. I love you and look forward to helping you line your pockets with more money than you’ve ever had before!

    I think I have found a scoop. Go to YouTube and enter ‘Zither – Kerschbam Zithermusi – Kerschbam Marsch’. I am certain the bloke on the left is Malcom Turnbull. Who would have thought he would don Bavarian Duds and play the zither?

    I’m pretty short, I wear red socks, my sanity has never been questioned, and I have never pelted the Beatles with eggs. However I do feel some weird affinity with Bob Katter. I was just wondering if you have any plans to reprint the “All Hat No Cattle” T shirts. I would prefer purchasing one to not purchasing one. I have visited your menswear department and noticed that you are out of stock in the large size. That would be the size that I would be shopping for.

    Check your facts. The rate of gun deaths in the U.S. is down from 10.5 to 3.5/100,000. That is quite a mathematical error on your part.

    To my American friends. We understand that the Australian situation is different. We don’t mean to be smug. But if you agree with the rest of the world that better gun control is needed, you need to start. You need to try. Every year you abdicate, people die. Start now. Finish as soon as you can. If that’s in 25 years, the world will still applaud. Are you brave enough to try?

    An ‘event’ is scheduled for the weekend that could be comedic –
    Melton, Victoria has a park ‘Hanna Watts Park’ that is apparently a Pokemon Go ‘nest’.
    The United Patriots Front / Rec;aim Australia group have told Pokemon Go players to stay out on Saturday as there is an Anti-Muslim protest planned.

    Dear Sirs,

    As a Western Australian I am appalled by the poor quality of this news website and the blatant ignoring of Western Australian stories. It’s all well and good to say “Oh, but we’re a local newspaper”, but we have local newspapers here too and they still manage to be full of Western Australian stories. Not only that, but because the ones here are made out of paper you can use your free copy to beat back annoying outraged street people when you go to places like Freo to taunt buskers and put a plastic shopping bag full of sick in their guitar cases. Your website is rubbish when wanting to do any of these things, and you can only join so many extension cords together if you want to take a computer with you when you go out on supervised day-excursions. Especially if you live in Bunbury.

    If I ever paid tax I’d be furious with knowing that your so-called “news website” is being subsidised using what might have been my money to peddle this socialist-leaning, small town, eastern states-centred, one-sided account of what you consider to be the important issues impacting the lives of Australian hillbillies who live anywhere west of Dubbo. I think it was the great Harpo Marx who once mouthed the words “A life spent not mentioning Western Australia as often as you can is like standing at a crowded bus stop and putting an angry rat down the front of your trousers”. I didn’t understand what he meant at the time, and I still don’t, but I’m sure it’s relevant somehow. He also understood what a fair share of the GST was as well, so there.

    I’m angry, I’m frustrated, I’m prone to bouts of incontinence, I used to have a pet dog called Buster but he died when I was 4, I don’t pay any attention to restraining orders, and I think I may be drunk whilst I’m writing this, but I don’t care. Unless sensible, ordinary, decent people like me stand up against elites like the Betoota Advocate then great Western Australians like Wilson Tuckey and Rolf Harris will have embarrassed themselves in vain.

    Take off your blinkers, and your dacks while you’re at it, and whatever that fluorescent thing is that’s wrapped around your privates (where do you get those if I could just ask – they look like fun), and stop being parochial. That’s our job – yours is just to report on us doing it. Getting airs and graces just because Betoota rated more highly than Melbourne in the world’s most liveable cities index is hardly grounds for going all up-market and intellectual. It was only Melbourne for God’s sake – I’ve known landfill sites that could have beaten their score.

    Regards

    Ron Muppet

    Dear Sirs,

    After posting my comment here I received a notification telling me that it was “…awaiting moderation”.

    I don’t believe in moderation. If I believed in, and practiced, moderation, I wouldn’t be on so many public nuisance databases.

    Moderation is the scourge of irrational commentators such as myself. You should think of your readership more.

    If God had truly wanted us to practice moderation, he wouldn’t have invented conservatives to fill the comments section of news websites.

    Regards

    I just received 2 copies of the Betoota Advocate roundup – I must say I was more than a bit pissed off when I opened the cover – I was expecting a glossy coffee table publication similar to say 1985 Australian Penthouse. These pricks have taken the cheap arse option and gypped everyone with something that looks like the local yellow pages. I mean you can’t even rest a cold schooner of Reschs on it without rendering the fuckin’ thing totally unreadable. Overell and Parker should be out there sourcing proper paper from old growth forests instead of pulling this inner city hipster recycling scam. The next thing these cunts will be working for the fucking ABC and spruiking communist bullshit to the next generation. I bet Bruce Ruxton wouldn’t have put up with this shit if he was still alive – he would have given both these turkeys 15 rounds in the carpark next time he came to Betoota RSL.
