No.. No it ain't.
Can't say it any better than Pete did.
Let me try. Australia, originally a penal colony for criminals, a veritable shithole of hell where the only places you can live well is along certain coastal areas. Not a bad place now but no one is rushing to go there. Great place if you want to see the southern skies.

Let's pretend to be objective and see what the studies say...

The jurisdictions that took the top 10 places, in order, were New Zealand, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Denmark (tied in 6th place), Ireland and the United Kingdom (tied in 8th place), and Finland, Norway, and Taiwan (tied in 10th place). Selected countries rank as follows: Germany (13), the United States and Sweden (17), Republic of Korea (27), Japan (31), France and Chile (32)

Australians actually lead those countries in happiness it is just it is very un-Australian to admit you are happy.

Australia has ten times the number of immigrant residents or new citizens as the USA per population.

Yes,

Yes it is.
What's up with the "my country is better than your country" crap? You remind me of a high schooler arguing that your school is better than my school. Who cares?

Well an native born Aussie would never do it, I admit, but I grew up in America where we were force fed slogans about how we were the shining light on the hill and told how we are the greatest at everything.


We see it on this very forum all the time.

It is just the American in me bragging about how much better Australia is.

A fuck ton of muslims? Thanks for taking them, just don't allow them to leave.

You might want to watch for large purchases of ammonium nitrate.

That's free advice.

.

I am not sure we want to take advise from the country must hated by the Islamic world in the world.

FUNNY. YOUR OWN LINK says we have SIX TIMES the total number of immigrants as you or only 1/3rd per population, not a tenth.
Next time you call someone out, you might want to at least read your own link.
Or maybe you're just another math-challenged person here.

Sorry, misread the column. Not ten times, just double the amount than America


In every chart posted in the link Australia has a higher number of foreign born population than the USA per population, usually double.

Hence the argument no one wants to come Australia is ignorant and mute.

Having said that given the US immigration system is a chaotic mess like much else in the USA, you surly have more illegal immigrants.

I think you miss being an American. That's why your Avatar is Cool Hand Luke and not Crocodile Dundee.

Australia is just another socialist mistake that is dependent on a communist nation for its economy , the same nation that calls it gum on the bottom of its shoe and is slowly buying up, land business and homes there

They really need to revamp US economics education, no Yank seems to know what socialism actually is.

By the way more American companies own land in Australia than Chinese.
