Have you paid off your portion of the national debt yet? Congress has borrowed and spent ALOT of money in your name.

Costa Rica is in Central America buddy, but that's one of the places I look for refuge. Banana farm...I could grow papayas, tobacco, or corn...I always wanted to do that....and run my import/export business.

THe GI Bills (there have been many) have receive bipartisan support. Social Security, Medicare, etc.... are just ponzi scheme entitlements that are going to be the primary driver of our country's downfall. CHeer about that all you like, when China stops lending us money and OPEC stops accepting US dollars for currency because of our fiscal mess, I'll be around to say "I told you so".

Actually, I'll probably be somewhere in South America.
Yes, the Civil Rights Act was proposed by Eisenhower in 1957 and 1960 but he was unsuccessful in passing it due mainly to the Dixiecrats (Conservative Democrats). It continued to be pushed by Kennedy and then Johnson, who finally succeeded in having the legislation passed thanks in part to the efforts of Hubert Humphrey. I'm not talking about Democrats and Republicans here, but about liberals and conservatives. The Republican Party had a history of liberalism in its very early days (1800's) and its liberal branch, which was in favor of civil rights legislation, existed into the 1960's. With respect to that consummate politician, Johnson, he truly did evolve regarding civil rights (unlike Obama's so-called evolution). Even Harry Truman was antisemitic as can be seen in his early writings, but he too evolved and became a staunch supporter of Israel.

Send me your email: I'll be joining you and austen in South America.

Now why would you want to join us, when you clearly support the Liberal policies that are the reasons me and Scott are fleeing to S America?

I chose Costa Rica for a couple of things.

No hurricanes or earthquakes
No standing army
Abortion is illegal

Yes, they have centralized healthcare that you must pay in to. But it is peanuts compared to our proposed system, because they were smart enough to actually tackle the real problem....cost of care. Healthcare there is cheap. ANd they have a public/private system where most of the public health doctors also run a private practice after hours and the care is supposed to be excellent.

The weather doesn't hurt either. Yes, bananas, mangos, papaya, coconuts, avocados all grow very well. The land is also arable for grapes as well, so maybe a little vino action.

Ahhh I've always wanted to be a vintner. I guess instead of the Islamic Republic of France I can choose Republica de Costa Rica. I really don't care for the fact it has no army...I don't trust neighbors, but pretty soon we won't have an army here anyways so Hola Costa Rica!

Also the Presidente is really hot...can't say the same about it if Hillary was President....too bad she's a Socialist and much of the Legislature is Socialist.
