@trying2learn,
You're question doesn't seem to be too sincere. What do you mean by "and yet I keep reading negative comments"? About the United States? About the weather? About the state of day time TV? It may be implied but you really need to think things through when you write a thread like this which could draw derisive comments because clearly you're trying to provoke negative reactions against your implied charges against nonUSers.

Yes. I live in the US and I have said in many threads that the US is the best country to live in but I'm not going to disparage other people's criticism against the US if it's reasonable and thoughtful and backed up by research and fact. Just because someone holds fault against one country or another doesn't mean they are implying they are living in a utopia which the country they are criticizing needs to duplicate in every aspect.

i live in a utopia called my mind

i reside in canada because i was born there, is it a great place, yes and no, the country (ie the physical place) is wonderful, politically we elect scumbag politicians (and they're all scumbags at heart) just like every democratic country

the one big advantage beyond the scenery is the healthcare, i'm more than happy to pay my taxes to have basic healthcare when i need it

i have no problem with the states because i don't really believe the government defines the people, other than to mock them, i never give the government here a second thought

are there other countries i'd like to live in, sure, most of the northern european countries (i love the northern landscape and cool temperatures), the UK or Australia

Leaving aside the thousands of Muslim terrorists who are registered here, this place is overrun with foreigners. Why, Texans alone account for a lot of the regularly posting members. There are hordes of Oztralians, and a lot of Anglish, too. Don't even get me started on the ones here who can't speak plain English, not to mention the foreigners who have trouble with the language.

If i had a rocket launcher . . .

@jcboy,
I've nearly 40 years experience in counting at elections. But unfortunately, I'm not only a commie but belong to the European majority of members. (I'm not a Johnny [that's French!] Cannuk.)

Whats the market rate for renting a downtown condo in your mind? I'm interested in moving there if it's local to the nearest subway stop, good restaurants, and an indie art house cinema. Razz

I hear that if Muslim terrorists register at Bed, Bath, and Beyond they get a 10% discount on all of their purchases.

Negative comments may be unpleasant to read, but they are a part of the free speech part of a democracy. Freedom of speech doesn't just mean freedom of nice, fluffy bunny speech. It's freedom of ugly, scaly alligator speech, too.

My apologies to all alligators. Please don't eat me.

S. Korea's alright, if you don't mind having 20-something million who want to kill you living just a few miles north.
