    If you could move abroad, would you?

    I have often thought lately that if a good opportunity came along, I would leave without regret. We can't seem to get anything done anymore in this country, we still don't have universal health care, our educational system is nothing but a political football, privacy is a quaint concept, our infrastructure is crumbling, there are guns everywhere, our politicians are for the most part clowns, we spend far too much money on the military, and Larry the Cable Guy is what passes for entertainment. Obama reminds me of one of those few capable emperors in the waning decades of the Roman Empire who tried to halt the decline of the empire but in the end couldn't do it. Why is it I watch "House Hunters International" and fantasize?
    Please leave already you pond scum. And make sure you take Pitt with you.

    1. Actually, my dear Brigid, I would not. Why?
    My husband and I are too old, we no longer work, and most countries don't want people like us.

    Our families are here, our children and grandchildren.

    We built our home, and we don't want to live anywhere else.

    Those are our reasons.


    I do hear ya, though. Some days, I wish we could...
    You forgot to mention your "home" is a McMansion didn't you Peg??? What a Limo Libtard.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I've lived in other countries...and was VERY glad my HOME was here in the US!

    My grandparents traveled the world and when they would return home and my grandmother would see the Statue of Liberty she would cry. Idiots like the DUmp don't know how good they have it.

    I understand how your grandmother felt.

    While the countries I lived in overseas were very nice, they were NOT the US. I lived in The Netherlands and Belgium for about 2 years. Nice places, very clean, but NOT HOME!

    Considering how it irritated me to be unarmed in Oakland California, then no, I would not live abroad.

    Step outside of the bounds of the US, or Canada for that matter, and you're in a whole different world. Mexico and Laos taught me that.

    I could happily live in Paris for a few years, but that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with Paris. :)

    There are a lot of places I'd like to visit-Prague, London, the Angor Wat in Cambodia, the child I sponsor in Kenya. But I want to come home when I'm done visiting.

    Don't do that, it could make you snooty and aloof.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I lived in Germany for almost 15 years. Loved it. Didn't want to come back, but events pretty much forced that to occur.

    I'm not sorry. I don't believe I'd have half the lifestyle Mrs E and I enjoy had I stayed.
