    Unfortunately I don't have the bucks for the Carribean. Though I think that I'd be a little more acceptable to the Middle and Near Eastern nations than most Americans. Though you're right that I probably wouldn't have the opportunity to prove that to them. Which means I'm pretty much stuck here in this ****-bucket country.

    Now, now. We all know you are really a huge Obama supporter and that you volunteer at local children's hospitals as a clown on the weekends.

    I tend to think the grass really isn't greener on the other side.
    What some cultures may offer is less focus on economic wealth as people are born into accepting they won't have much, so find pleasure in other than material goods and costly activities.

    LOL. I'd kill MYSELF before I voted for Obama; though I have volunteered at several Retirement Homes over the course of my life. I was the Patient at the Children's Hospitals around here, not a volunteer or staff.

    More importantly, many of those societies focus on what one SHOULD have, do, think, say, etc... rather than what one Likes or Wants to have, do, think, say, etc...

    The fact that you don't believe you're here to impress Them, doesn't mean that They don't believe it. Of course you are more than both entitled and welcome to your opinion. Maybe you'll get it right the next time around.

    Good grief! At 6 years old I was building tennis ball cannons and playing Superman by jumping off the garage roof....and so were all the other kids in the neighborhood! Playing in the street was among the LEAST dangerous stuff we did.
    In my neighborhood, it's not that they ride them in the street -- they ride them down the sidewalk. Again, if the neighbor's not psychotic, there's more to the story. Moms don't get thrown in jail for no reason at all.

    Of course she, is why not????

    Last thing anyone needs is someone who cannot mind their own business. The police may not be liable, but, this pickle nose neighbor's homeowners policy is probably going to have to defend her then seek to recoup their funds from this knucklehead.
