Twenty percent chance that Australia will become a U.S. state.

Needless to say, this is just silly. And I think the "advocate" was saying it tongue in cheek as a means to espouse which American virtues he felt Austrailia could use. But I admit always get a kick out of talk like this... every once and awhile you hear crazy talk of Austrailia or Canada "voluntarily appealing for induction into US state-hood." Cracks me up and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and patriotic inside.

Still, it does give us one insight: we're such a big terrible nasty oppressive empire that people acctually consider joining up with us... oh wait... how many immigrants did we have last year?
