I'm Out, for Good

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 7:32 AM

I'm an expat. I miss the good 'ol USofA every once in a while. Yous sure know how to make good food, and great beer. Sometimes I used to miss it so much I thought about moving back. But then again, the 'wrong place at the wrong time' getting shot business no longer applies. It seems that I'd rather pay higher taxes but earn more, have lesser 'certain' freedoms than I did in America but better healthcare, work far less and have more paid time off and not have to be concerned about idiots shooting into crowds. It's too far gone and I'm out, for good. Time to put my money and patriotism into a country that deserves it.
