As far down Mr. Crappers bowl we've gone, there's no where I want to move to. Canada? Nope. too freaking cold and that country will fall apart
within weeks of the US. Nowhere in Europe, that's for sure.
Australia? Maybe, but too many snakes and they're about to be overrun by Asians. New zealand? Bah.
Scratch Africa, the Mid-East? Yah right. Hmm. The south pole? Nope, no steaks... England? Nope praying on Sunday beats five times a day...
Iceland? Hmm. There's a possiblity. Costa Rica/Central America? Nope too many retired spooks. Siberia? Nope Canada without the beer. Some small,
isolated Island that hasn't been nuked, immigrated to? Already bought up by the dudes who messed it all up..
Iceland is too small. It would be overpopulated in a year.
Nope. I'm hunkering down. Survivalist mode. Plenty of food, away from the cities and who knows, maybe it will get better some day.
Just curious--ever actually been to any of those countries? Or are you just basing your opinions on an uneducated perception of those sovereign
nations because that is what TV tells you?
Your statements are asinine.
Canada is a good country. they have unfortunately fallen victim to not knowing if they are european or american and have suffered the budgetary ills
of attempting to be both. I have been the a number of times. Great country.
Australia, excellent. Great people, great food (minus the Vegemite) and generally just great. Love that place. Their latest PMs are probably as bad
as our latest presidents but other wise the place is just great. Been there as well.
Middle East. been there too, a lot, and then some more. Love it, hate it, love to hate it. Wouldn't want to immigrate there but I have actually
been there so at least I can say something about it. I would wager you haven't been.
New Zealand. I was just talking about how much I love NZ this last friday. Awesome. I have visited there many times and love Christchurch. It is
like living in the midwest of the US but with the ocean near by. The architecture is great, the people are awesome, the bluffs are close and the
beaches are really neat. Great place, move there in a minute.
Iceland, never been there so I can't pass judgement, unlike you. I am interested in how they are handling things and I am watchful. I have read and
viewed a bit about them and it seems like a pretty good place.
"Europe": lived there for years. Love it. I doubt I would live in France but Germany is great, Netherlands, Spain, Italy are awesome. Austria is
excellent. Never did too much E Europe so I can't speak for those areas but W Europe, friggin awesome, miss it every day.
Africa, well I have been to N Africa, can't say that I would encourage anyone to go there, but at least I was there to see and formulate an
England is ok. Food isn't too good and they are becoming a bit more of a police state than we are and faster than we are so I would agree that it
isn't the best choice. I went there many times and always enjoyed it and I have friends who live there and enjoy it quite a lot. Visited many
times. Not a bad place. Their are getting a bit too heavy on their surveillance though.
Central America--haven't been there. The "too many retired spooks" commment is nonsense. If that is true then it is probably a great place to
live; surrounded by thousands of old fuddy duddies who don't want to interact with anyone. Sounds pretty great. Good weather to boot.
Well, you enjoy your red-neck opinions of other countries and "hunker down". You are why we are no longer number one.
